JP3 DVD RELEASE DETAILS!

Finally Universal has decided to give us some details on the new JP/// DVD set to be released on December 11th. Being the huge DVD fan that I am, I can't tell you how excited I am that this disc is only about 2 months away and it looks like Universal has put together a great package for us fans. Here's the details from the Digital Bits: The Jurassic Park III: Collector's Edition will carry an SRP of $26.95. You'll get the expected anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 audio options, along with a plethora of extras. Included will be an audio commentary with director Joe Johnston, The Making of Jurassic Park III production featurette shot on set, additional featurettes on the special effects (including The New Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park III, A Guided Tour of Stan Winston's Studio and A Visit to ILM), a Dinosaur Turntable (providing a 3D look at the creatures themselves), a production photo gallery, storyboard sequences, the Jurassic Park III Archives, theatrical trailers and more. As is par for the course with Universal these days, there will be multiple versions of the title released the same day. You'll be able to buy the film in full frame if that's what you prefer, or you can buy a box set of all three films, entitled The Jurassic Park Trilogy, for $76.95. This new box set will reportedly contain a bonus disc of previously unreleased material, The Jurassic Park Franchise. And if you already own the movies on DVD, you can get the new disc without buying the box set. This comes from the studio's press release: "Consumers purchasing Jurassic Park III who already own Jurassic Park and The Lost World DVDs may receive a collectible Jurassic Park DVD slipcase and Bonus Disc allowing them to complete their own "Jurassic Park Trilogy Collection" via mail for only $6.95." A big thanks has to go out to Universal for making this Bonus Disc available to those of us that have already purchased JP & TLW. I can't wait to get my hands on it! Make sure you check out the Digital Bits for some great pictures of the Box set and the JP/// cover.

HERE'S SOMETHING YOU MAY HAVE MISSED

O.K. I apologize for not updating the site with this earlier but being in the military right now doesn't afford one much time. Plus there has been absolutely nothing to report lately. But here it goes anyway, our good friend raptor1982 over at Jurassic Park Toys was able to get his hands on a nice little picture of what looks like the JP Bush Tracker modified to be the new JP/// All-Terrain vehicle. He found it in a French Hasbro catalogue. Here's the description straight from the catalogue: This all-terrain vehicle is perfect to hunt dinosaurs! It is electronic and has a light and sounds to attract the dinosaurs. It's equipted with a capturenet that gets activated by the front of the vehicle. An arm at the side makes it possible to maintain captured dinosaurs. One dinosaur and figure included. You can view the picture here.

POCKET.IGN REVIEWS KONAMI'S PARK BUILDER

Thanks to everyone who pointed this review my way. This site deals mainly with just toy related news but as I've said before I know there are many of you interested in these games and since the games and toys are so closely related, we'll continue to bring you both. Now on to the review. pocket.ign has posted their review of the new Park Builder game which they say has some faults. Here's some of what they had to say: "Konami's Jurassic Park 3: Park Builder is far from an original concept. In fact, it's been done before on the PC as Dino Park Tycoon. Konami's take on the idea isn't a direct port of that PC game, but it's a close rendition in pocket form, and it would have been a great game if the development team didn't assume that gamers would know what to do right out of the gate. Park Builder has some highs as well lows, but it's mostly good...if you can get through the necessary, but seriously annoying, trial-and-error phase." You can read the full

NEW SITE LAYOUT!

After days and days of thinking about it, I finally decided to give the site a new look. Granted, it's no major change but then again I'm no professional web designer either! I hope you like it!

AMERICA UNDER ATTACK

As I'm sure you've all heard by now, earlier this morning at about 8:45 EDT America was suddenly attacked by terrorist. This tragedy has left the country in a state of disbelief and shock. I think the best thing any of us can do right now is to pray for those families that have lost loved ones in this cowardly and tragic act. Discuss this story

MORE FROM SAM NEILL

Not to long ago we posted a report here (you can check the archives here for the full story) in which Sam Neill was telling us his thoughts on his action figure conterpart. Well, in a recent story over at Dan's, he was asked the same question again in an interview by the Australian TV show Rove Live. Although most of this is old news, I figured that those of you that haven't read this yet might enjoy it. Here's what he had to say: ROVE: Was one of the sweetness the action figure for your character Dr. Alan Grant? I've got one here, I don't know if you've seen one but, uh, the likeness here is just spot on ! ( Rove holds a muscle-bound Grant action figure up to the screen as the audience laughs ) SAM: ( Smiles ) It's uncanny isn't it ? ROVE: Is it weird having your own action figure ? SAM: Well, you know, I think whats happened in this case is that Alan Grant has clearly been on steroids for eight years and , um, and his head has shrunk. This is what happens when you abuse steroids.
