What do you think of Hybrids So Far in the JP Franchise?481 Views6 RepliesAdd A Reply
Well theres been hybrids for a while. And i Kind of just wanted to talk about them. How it was handled. Was it Good? Bad? Been Done Better?
Also do you have a favorite?
Also researching me this ended me up on some creationist website? Idk what that has to do with indominus rex but it happened.
Personally, I thought the Scorpios was the most interesting hybrid. Its venom and ability to self replicate made it more unique. Plus it really gave off an unsettling "abomination of science" feel. Looking at its appearance and the way it acted and moved, it really came off as something that shouldn't exist in the natural world and that the fact that it was made is an affront to nature, something that isn't an animal, but a monstrosity, which is something I really wanted to see with the hybrids, which we kind of got with the Indoraptor, but not so much with the Indominus.
Also, I wouldn't really count the Spinosaurus as a hybrid. Canonically it is mutated and was a result of a secret experiment, but it was still meant to be based on a real dinosaur and at the time it was created (and when the film came out) it was accurate to what the animal was thought to have looked like, even if the reconstruction is considered outdated now. I would argue that the Velociraptors are more of a hybrid than the Spino, considering that they're over twice as large as real Velociraptors, featherless, and based more on Deinonychus, but even then a lot of that was based on certain information at the time the original novel and film were made.
The Indoraptor from the main canon
The Ultimasaurus from Chaos Effect canon
I comepletely agree, I recently discovered I actually really like Scorpius despite just hating it for a long time. The ambomination feel was really great to finally get.
I dont actually know about Spinosaurus, I think it was apparently the first hybrid according to the masrani website, but otherwise I actually have no idea.
I just included it in case.
I was literally trying to google that name lol! I couldnt remember it for the life of me. Diabolus Rex kept coming to mind.
It was my first JP "hybrid", I remember flipping through a toy catalog when I was 7/8ish back in the late 90's and in the jurassic park section there was the chaos effect toyline.
Sadly the Ultimasaurus despite being the Chaos Effect's mascot and appearing in the initial advertisement was not for sale due to its horns being too pointy. So I got the Compsteganathus instead.
I like the Indoraptor because it was inspired by the xenomorph and its just so sinister looking compared to the canon hybrids. Although I did enjoy the Indominus rex.
So if I had to put my favorite hybrids in a list here it goes
5. Indominus rex
