Jurassic World Dominion - SOYONA SANTOS!

Jurassic World: Dominion - Release n' Rampage Pack - Mattel 2022

I have tickets to see Jurassic World: Dominion next weekend and I'm very excited. Even if the plots aren't great, and even if certain (popular) unnamed actors annoy the crap out of me, as soon as I see dinosaurs on the big screen I am a kid again watching Godzilla and Ray Harryhausen movies. Surprisingly I didn't see the first Jurassic Park movie in the theatre back in 1993. Rather, I saw it a year or so later at a local auditorium in my hometown where they would play second run movies for free on a big screen, I instantly regretted not seeing it with the full sound and picture experience and vowed never to make that mistake again. This character of Soyona Santos is a mystery. There have been no images of her from the film; only this figure, and a Lego set. Even IMDb only included the character name recently. Dichen Lachman plays Soyona. I am unfamiliar with this actress but her roles in nerdy sci-fi shows is impressive (The 100, Altered Carbon, Supergirl, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Being Human, etc)

Soyona comes with what appears to be an electric cattle prod and a taser. The packaging labels the shorter one as a "controller."

If I had to wager, I would bet that Soyona Santos will be the villain of the film. She has fancy clothes, offensive accessories, and she comes with a dinosaur transport. I assume she either works for a group that has weaponized dinosaurs, or that she is dealing with the age-old plot of poaching the animals for some devious means.

The set also comes with an Atrociraptor. I mistakenly thought this was another imaginary hybrid dinosaur invented for the franchise, but it's real (discovered in Canada in 1995).

Here is a pic of Dichen from one of her other shows. As I said, there has been no images of her from Jurassic World: Dominion yet. [At the time of my writing this in late May]

The dinosaur transport has a gate that you can manually raise and lower.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
