Jurassic World - CLAIRE DEARING!

Jurassic World - Deluxe Series 01: Gyrosphere & Claire Dearing - Mattel 2018

There's almost nothing I love more than a phenomenally talented actress. I especially love it when they are from my generation. A few great ones come to mind: Kate Winslet, Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt, and of course Bryce Dallas Howard. I first saw her back in The Village in 2004 and I was instantly smitten. Something I also love about all these particular actors is that they intermix serious Oscar-worthy roles with lighthearted playful ones. Us nerdy folk probably best know Bryce as Gwen Stacy from Spider-Man 3, Victoria from Twilight, and Claire from Jurassic World, none of which are particularly powerful roles, but if you want a taste of her skills check out the Season 3 premiere of Black Mirror (Nosedive) on Netflix. She is just brilliant. I'm glad that Mattel waited until this second movie to get the license and create a thorough line of action figures. Claire's white executive outfit in the first movie was ridiculously iconic, but I honestly don't won't a toy immortalizing it. Let's check out this more utilitarian version below!










There's a second version of Claire coming out in a single pack. She looks pretty similar except her coat is slightly longer and a light brown color.










My Claire's facepaint is pretty sloppy (mostly her lips). I've seen better versions on the shelves since I purchased mine.












The gyrosphere vehicle is pretty great. The seats stay level as you roll it across the floor, and one side of the sphere has cracked damage marks.

















Time for some Comparison Pics!


Here is Claire with the recent Ellie Sattler figure from the Legacy Collection.






Cheers!
