Interestingly, this playset reveals the name of one of the human characters to us – Darius, one of the children who will be a part of the roster of characters in the upcoming short. The figure is listed as being 6-inches tall, but looking at the sculpt we can see that Darius clearly reuses the legs from Maisie, so that emphasises that this figure is 3/34 inches and that the listing here is wrong. Interestingly enough, we get a small scale Bumpy to accompany Darius – which is drastically smaller than the Attack Pack version of Bumpy we originally saw as a part of the line-up. We are willing to bet that this means that Bumpy may be a little bit smaller than we all expect – with Universal Studios perhaps attempting to rival The Mandalorian’s very own Baby Yoda.
Also included here is a beautiful repaint of the Baryonyx. We had initially seen some speculation back at Toy Fair that the Baryonyx characters in Camp Cretaceous would be named, but that doesn’t appear to be the case for this particular variant. The figure looks to reuse the beautiful battle-damage sculpt that we saw in the Baryonyx Breakout set, with the simple non-electronic bite function. I am interested to see how the Stegosaurus will work here, however, as it appears to be a retool of the pre-existing sculpt without the prevalent scales which enable us to swing the tail. The description suggests that one spike can be pushed to make the tail move, so perhaps this is another retool, providing us with a new sculpt for the Stegosaurus which may be used in the future.
Although there is currently no price point on this product, we’d estimate between $30 and $50 given the volume of Dinosaurs you get here. It is wonderful to see Mattel embracing the playset formula as a way to release new human characters into the line – and this does make us excited to see if we will get more human characters from Camp Cretaceous in the future.

6 inch figure ? i thought it was for the 3 3/4 inch scale?
It’s definitely a typo. You can see looking at the photos that it’s not a six-inch human figure.
Just to second this – definitely 3/34 inch. As I said in the piece, the figure reuses Maisie’s legs, so is defo in the same scale.
About time we have a new human figure. Looks like a great set and I’ll be happy to own this.
Same here, Erik! I am excited to grab it.
It’s a good bet we’ll get the other kids from the show in action figure form as well, in some capacity. We’re long overdue for new human figures in the line. Mattel’s done an excellent job with the dinosaurs and creatures, but has fallen short with the humans and vehicles.
A Stegosaurus with only one action button for the tail would not be a retool! That’s an identical function to the original Stegosaurus figure, the Action Attack one from 2018, so if there’s no headbutt function, it’s a repaint of that one.
This isn’t a bad set, though the two large figures being repaints and the new stuff being tiny figures is slightly irritating. If the Bumpy is just the Mini Action Dino version, only Darius is truly new. This is probably something I’ll only get if I see it discounted – I have a whole pack of Baryonyx at this point and both previous Stegos, and no deep desire to pick up CC humans.
Ah, my bad, I always get the features on the two confused!
Yeah I think the repaints here will definitely be divisive for people who aren’t enthralled with CC. I’ve actually only got Two Baryonyx at this point so I welcome this one as I love it’s colour scheme, but I defo have too many Stegos considering how much space this sculpt eats up!
Which kind are the baryonyx
The important thing is that other new humans are released, so there is lunch for the dinosaurs :).
I will definitely take it!
well its nice to see the human figures returning in the sets at least hopefully we can get a dennis/dilphosaurus leagcy set in the future complete with dock sign and attachable spare wheel for jeep!
I’m really excited for the new toys. The collector app has even been updated to show all of the new Dinosaurs. My son is 5 and he is the collector so many of the Dinosaurs he missed the first time around and I’m not spending the extra price being asked by retailers for discontinued toys since he actually plays with them.
This is the only place I found that answered whether I could buy the figurines yet lol
This set is a great one for children who are just getting into Jurassic World. if has it all: a Large hulking herbivore, a fast and nimble carnivore, a cute baby dinosaur, and a human in the way. The stegosaurus sculpt from this set was actually my first, and boy does it not disappoint. the sculpt is amazing, the gray body and lavender underbelly go great together, and the action feature is great. Thag Simmons is sure to take a beating now! The Baryonyx, who looks a lot like Baryonyx Limbo from the TV show, has a nice action feature, which was responsible for him being named by my as Flapjaw. He has some nice paint and the sculpt is one you cannot go wrong with. the Inclusion of Darius Bowman was a nice touch, and kids will certainly have him eaten by the Baryonyx or slapped by the Stego. Bumpy, who is actually different in real life than in the initial images, is a cute little accessory that is certainly going to get lost in the sea of dinosaurs that are Mattel’s lineup for 2020, or in a couch for that matter. the best part is that the Stego, who amounts to $25 by itself, and the Baryonyx, which amounts to around $15, are about 40 together, and darius and bumpy bump (pun intended) it up to about $45. however, this set retails for $35! I certainly recommend this set to anyone who is getting into JP, or who just likes dinosaurs.
