In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Jurassic World actor Irrfan Khan was asked briefly about the upcoming film in which he plays Simon Masrani, the park owner.
While we know that the film primiarily used visual effects for the dinosaurs, Legacy FX (formally Stan Winston Studios) were on board to bring some life-like dinosaurs to the screen. Irrfan Khan confirms that while he was on set, there was an animatronic made for the new attraction at Jurassic World - the Indominus Rex.
"In earlier Jurassic films, they had real dinosaurs, robot dinosaurs. In this they were more relying on special FX, so later they could create, the technique has changed. The one which is the main pivitol for the story, they made it... and it's scary. It gives you a strange feeling, something strange about his behavior"
As far as we know, there were roughly four animatronics made for the film - two Velociraptors, the Apatosaurus head, and the Indominus Rex. It's unclear whether or not it was a full bodied animatronic or if it was just the head but either way it's good to know that there was one.
Check out the video below. The Jurassic World segment begins at 21:52.
While not everyone at Stan Winston Studios is happy about the lack of animatronics in Jurassic World, at least the main dinosaur isn't purely CGI. Hollywood has changed, and some would argue not for the better.

This trilogy collection includes four discs: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park 3D, The Lost World and Jurassic Park 3. It also includes $7.50 Fandango Cash to see Jurassic World in theaters and space for both Jurassic World 2D and 3D discs - which will be released later in the year.

LEGO Jurassic World sets officially unveiled at New York Toy Fair
Posted by Sandy - Saturday 14 February 2015 at 04:33PM - 13 Comments
LEGO has finally unveiled the highly anticipated Jurassic World sets, which are currently set for a May release. The sets are said to be key scenes from the movie and feature a variety of characters and dinosaurs including the Dilophosaurus, Pteranodon, T-Rex, 2 Raptors and the new addition to Jurassic World, the Indominous Rex. It should be noted that the sets may also include small spoilers.
Below are some pictures of each of the sets - click to enlarge!
This set contains Gray and an ACU troop mini-figure, a Dilophosaurus, gyrosphere, and what looks to be a Jeep similar to the original Wrangler but sporting a fresh new blue paint job. It is interesting to see the Dilophosaur in the Lego set that are from key scenes from the movie. There seems to be a pretty good chance that its going to be seen in the movie.
This is the smallest of the Lego Jurassic World sets. It includes a Simon Masrani and an ACU trooper mini-figure, a Pteranodon and a helicopter (JW001) with a firing net feature.
This mid range set features an Owen, Claire and an ACU trooper mini-figure along with raptors Blue and Delta. Owen's motorbike and the Mobile Vet Unit vehicle are also included. It seems as though the Raptors are attacking the Vet Unit and Pratt.
The Rex set is one of the two largest sets of the line. It features Hoskins, a vet, and another ACU trooper minifigure and the fan favorite T-Rex. Also featured is a very large transport/capture vehicle for the Rex.
Indominus Rex Breakout
This is the largest of the Jurassic World sets that is being released. There are 4 mini-figures: Dr. Wu, Zack, Vet, and an ACU troop. But the star of this set is the Indominus Rex. The I-Rex's paddock, a helicopter and a gyrosphere are also present.
Personally, I think these sets look fantastic. There are a good amount of mini-figures, dinosaurs and vehicles that fans should be very happy with. Look for these to start hitting in May before the release of the movie.
First look at Hasbro's Indominus Rex, LEGO sets and much more!

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have an official first look at the new attraction to Jurassic World - the Indominus Rex. As the article states, a number of pictures of the toy have leaked online but now Hasbro have officially unveiled the toy to the audience at Toy Fair 2015 in New York.
Hasbro's toyline will be revealed tomorrow on the 14th, but EW got an early look at the dinosaur.
The Indominus Rex was officially revealed recently via an update on Masrani Global and a huge new banner image on the official Jurassic World website, that led to more information about the hybrid, which is currently 40ft tall.
According to EW, the Indominus Rex toy will be $35 and is battery-operated which allows it to roar, chomp, and it also has light-up skin on its back.
Some images from Hasbro's toyline have leaked online in the past few weeks, but as expected they have been revealed at the Toy Fair in time for their release this Spring and Fall. Below are two more pictures showing the two Jurassic favourites, the 'Stomp and Strike' Tyrannosaurus Rex (Fall, $34.99) and the 'Growler' Velociraptor 'Blue' (Spring, $14.99).
The entire product line will be available in May, which includes toys, games, apparel and more. Thanks to Nublar7 for sending this my way!
