This Jurassic Park Toy Has Already Won Comic-Con At Home
The Dennis Nedry inside a Barbasol can is the best thing Mattel has put together to date.
Every year at San Diego Comic-Con, toy companies put out exclusive figures you can get at the convention, and if there are leftovers, you can pick them up for yourself after the show. Comic-Con 2020 is going to be very different, as it's a virtual event that you can watch from home. However, that's not stopping companies from releasing top-of-the-line hilarity this year, including a Mr. T WWE toy and a Jurassic Park character in a shaving cream can.
In 1993's Jurassic Park, Wayne Knight played the villainous Dennis Nedry, a computer programmer who hacked into the park's security system in order to cause chaos in order to steal dinosaur embryos. He hid these embryos in a Barbasol shaving cream can, and to pay homage to that character, Mattel is producing a Nedry action figure that is hidden in a Barbasol can. Check it out below.
It only gets better from there. When you press the top of the can, you can hear classic Nedry lines like "Uh, uh, uh! You didn't say the magic word!" The figure is 3.75 inches tall and comes with accesories like a plate with pie on it, his handbag, and a tiny Barbasol can. The figure will cost $20 and be available later today for pre-order from Entertainment Earth for its July release. Mattel Creations will have further updates on availability, as quantities are limited.
And speaking of Jurassic Park, the 1993 blockbuster is number one at the box office this week, believe it or not, as movie theaters across the country slowly reopen and begin playing classic movies in place of new releases. The next film in the dino franchise is Jurassic World: Dominion, which will hit theaters on June 11, 2021, and Jeff Goldblum will be returning.
