Please welcome our newest Collect Jurassic contributor, Austin!
We’re already more than halfway through 2019, but we’ve still got plenty of toys to look forward to before the year comes to an end. In fact, this year we will see one of the most rare figures in the Mattel Jurassic World line, the Spinosaurus, making a comeback with a new look! Along with official press shots, we’re able to take a much closer look at this upcoming release via Daniel Arevalo (Instagram & YouTube) who was lucky enough to receive the toy itself via a giveaway at San Diego Comic Con earlier this month.
The fearsome antagonist from Jurassic Park III returns in Battle Damage form, sporting an all new coloration and a unique Battle Damage feature never-before-seen in a Jurassic figure. Situated on the right side of the dinosaur is a large rubberized skin piece that folds down to reveal a massive sculpted ribcage, which can also be folded down to reveal even more Battle Damage. This is where things get interesting—pressing a button on the Spinosaurus’ sail activates a spinning orb filled with liquid “blood”. Quite a specialized application of Battle Damage, and the fact that the skin and bone pieces stay attached means kids (and collectors) won’t be losing any of the figure’s components.
The Spinosaurus also keeps its original “Extreme Chompin’” action feature from the initial release, allowing it to crunch on other figures with its massive jaws. While some fans have expressed disappointment that this figure doesn’t possess the more film-accurate colors of its predecessor, we are very happy that the mold has not gone to waste, and that fans will soon be able to add this Spinosaurus to their collection!
The Battle Damage Spinosaurus is expected to release this October as a Walmart exclusive in the US for around $40. As always Collect Jurassic will keep you updated on its availability with both in-store sightings and online listings.

I like you
Pricing is unknown? This Collect Jurassic Instagram post says it’ll be $40.
$40 seems pretty steep considering there’s no electronics in this figure – I expected $30, a la Bite N Fight.
The original was $25, and this is heavily retooled with both rubber, and liquid components, as well as extra internal mechanics. I definitely think $40 is a justifiable price point.
Unfortunately, I foresee many broken Spinosaurus toys on the shelf. Unsupervised little brats are going to snap that battle damage right off. I’m also concerned about the longevity of the liquid. It will almost definitely dry up eventually, just like the List World Medical Center “blood”.
l want the jurassic world battle damge spinosars and please bring me it .glenn
It’s for kids not us
when is the battle damge spinosaurs is going to be on sale in cape coral
Can’t seem to find this available on any retail price. Where are you guys finding this at?
It’s been sold out for weeks. Any idea if it’s going to come back in stock?
when is this thing going to be back on stock
Just like the preceding Spinosaurus, it disappeared in a flash, is notoriously hard to find, and very expensive! Just a sign Mattel’s going to have to keep making more variations on this dinosaur so more collectors can get at least one, lol
Looking forward to have this one in my park
i have the oringinal
Would you sell it! If so how much
I am looking for one for my 3 yo grandson who already knows the names of most dinosaurs by sight. I cant find one anywhere but $200 from Guadalaja Mexico. The price doesnt scare me as much as getting stiffed because its a scam . Anyone know where else I can look.
is it still on stock
and how much does it cost ?
