As the onslaught of Jurassic World merchandising begins to hit the shelves, something that may have gone overlooked is the Playskool Heroes subline. It seems that many of the adorably chunky and delightfully-colored dinosaurs (at least one of which bears work from Catrina Cerise-Arana of Boss Fight Studio) are being wrangled by former members of the Rescue Bots team!
