STARSHIP TROOPERS TRAITOR OF MARS FIGMA WARRIOR BUG
From FREEing. From the 2017 film Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars comes a figma of the Warrior Bug, the standard infantry unit of the Arachnid species! The smooth yet poseable figma joints allow you to act out a variety of different scenes from the movie, and two kinds of Power Suit miniature figures in the same scale as the Warrior Bug are included. The standing pose miniature figure comes with both a Johnny Rico head part and generic soldier head part. Using special parts, the injured pose miniature figure can be displayed with the Warrior Bug to recreate intense combat scenes from the movie. An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken! Power Suit miniature figures pictured were painted for the purpose of taking product photos. Actual product will vary.
Announcing the Jurassic Park OneSixth Dr. Alan Grant and Velociraptor figures from Chronicle Collectibles. These figures can be purchased separately or together as a set, check out the details below.
“Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by 65 million years of evolution have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea what to expect?”
Noted scientist Dr. Alan Grant stands at the pinnacle of the paleontological world. He’s a dying breed, his love of the hunt defined by the trowel at his belt and his ever-present six-inch Velociraptor claw. For Grant, the journey is as fundamental as the destination, and knowledge gained without getting your hands dirty is missing one crucial element: Fun. He has a craving for wonder, and little patience for technology.
Grant also lacks patience for fundraising. He’s a digger. Time spent groveling for money is time better spent in the field. So when noted theme park mogul John Hammond offers to fully fund Grant’s project for three years in exchange for a few days of Grant’s time, it’s hard to say no.
Thus, Grant’s adventure begins, and the wonder induced by Hammond’s actual, live dinosaurs leads to speculation of the dangers inherent in rushing madly into such an endeavor. Which, in turn, descends into horror, as speculation becomes grim, deadly reality. And Grant soon learns that a lifetime studying the lives of dinosaurs is not the same as learning to survive them.
Chronicle Collectibles is thrilled to bring to Jurassic Park fans worldwide our OneSixth posable figure of Dr. Alan Grant. Featuring a fully-articulated body, the figure includes a fine assortment of accessories, including a pair of gloved hands holding a baby raptor, a hand holding a flare, and two swappable portraits in the likeness of actor Sam Neill. Adorned with a custom-tailored reconstruction of Grant’s costume from the original film, this figure will allow Jurassic Park fans the freedom to recreate their own vision of Dr. Grant to idealize the figure’s presence on desk or shelf. For fans who choose to order direct from Chronic Collectibles, they will receive a Chronicle Exclusive swap-out hand holding a raptor claw. Quantities are limited, so reserve yours today!
“You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that’s when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side…from the other two raptors you didn’t even know were there.”
With that bone-chilling description of a long-extinct reptilian terror, Dr. Alan Grant foreshadowed the horror that would all-too-soon dominate his life. That tale presaged a cascading sequence of sounds and revelations, each in turn dialing up the level of dread until, at last, that lightning-fast alpha predator is revealed: The Velociraptor, the supreme pack hunter of Jurassic Park.
While the T. rex was the superficial king of Jurassic Park, the Velociraptors arguably stole the show, especially in terms of skin-crawling fear. Their calculating eyes, coupled with their speed and ability to make astonishing leaps, made for a far deadlier encounter for young Lex and Tim as the raptors stalked the two children through the compound’s kitchen.
Chronicle Collectibles is thrilled to present to collectors the OneSixth Velociraptor Articulated Figure. Standing at 25 inches in overall length and 12” in height, our raptor features 12 points of articulation and comes complete with three sets of hands – one with relaxed hands, one neutral position and the others outstretched for an attack.
Discerning collectors who purchase directly from Chronicle Collectibles will enjoy a bonus accessory: the Raptor handler’s stun baton and hard hat. Quantities are limited, so reserve yours today.
We have paired our OneSixth Dr. Alan Grant and OneSixth Velociraptor into a Chronicle Exclusive bundle that includes Grant's Raptor Claw hand and the Velociraptor's stun baton and hard hat.

Beasts of the Mesozoic: Ceratopsians- a line of scientifically accurate dinosaur action figures with elaborate detail and articulation.
Dinosaurs have captivated us for generations and were one of our first loves as children. We all know of them, people love them all around the world, and yet these majestic creatures of prehistory are sorely underrepresented in the collectibles industry, most notably, as action figures. In 2016, the Beasts of the Mesozoic: Raptor Series Kickstarter campaign offered finely detailed, scientifically-accurate, highly poseable dinosaur action figures, and with over 2,600 backers, the response well exceeded expectations. Now the time has come to follow up the Raptors with the next phase in the dinosaur toy revolution. It's time to celebrate and explore, the Ceratopsians!
Welcome to the world of Beasts of the Mesozoic
The Beasts of the Mesozoic: Ceratopsian Series picks up where the Raptor Series left off, with a focus on scientific accuracy, detail, functionality, and imagination! With this second series, the Beasts of the Mesozoic line strives to improve upon all of these qualities while adding more diversity of dinosaur species and larger, more varied figures thus recreating a time in which wildlife flourished in ways we humans have never witnessed. Some species offered here will be very familiar while others present new opportunities for discovery, much like when we first learned of these amazing creatures in our formative years. Join me while we revisit old favorites and possibly find some new favorites as well.
A little about Creative Beast Studio
Creative Beast Studio is a sole-proprietorship owned by David Silva, a designer/ sculptor in the toys and collectibles industry since 2003. David has worked for companies such as McFarlane Toys (Dragons, Spawn), Hasbro (Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Marvel), and NECA (Predator, Godzilla, Pacific Rim, Aliens). David has run Creative Beast Studio in addition to full-time employment in the toy industry since Fall of 2009. With an initial focus on dinosaur model kits, the Beasts of the Mesozoic: Raptor Series Kickstarter in 2016 has helped grow the company's audience exponentially and the focus is now to seek the potential for wildlife-based action figures, for which collectors have very few options.
A 'Thank You' The Beasts of the Mesozoic: Ceratopsians Team
Before we get to the goods, I'd like to give a very appreciative acknowledgement to all of the talented artists who contributed to this project with me. If not for them, this campaign wouldn't be possible.
