JURASSIC WORLD Is Based On This 1998 Toy Commercial


Here's a blast from the past: a 1998 commercial for the Jurassic Park: Chaos Effect toy line that bears an eerie resemblence to the plot of Jurassic World. Is the new movie the biggest film ever based on a toy line?

Thanks to our own Roger Tinch for alerting me to this commercial!

The Chaos Effect line of toys were largely repaints of earlier Jurassic Park toys, and more were planned than were ever released; I guess the line never went over that well. There was supposed to be a cartoon as well, but that never actually got off the ground... leaving the story of genetically mixed-up dinos gone bad for Jurassic World.
