Mattel Creations came out strong with Jurassic Park merchandising this year. And while nothing can top the shirtless Jeff Goldblum collectible, the company’s newest dinosaur-themed item is an instantly recognizable callback to the ’90s classic.

The Matchbox 1993 Ford Explorer is a 1:64 scale recreation of the vehicle that takes hapless Jurassic Park guests on a test drive of the safari. The car may be tiny, but it’s packed with detail, from the Jurassic Park logo on the hood and sides, to the six-spoke wheels with yellow CUV hubs, to the license plate and logos on the rear. From the product photos, the paint also appears to have a glossy, almost shimmering finish.

This collectible die-cast comes in displayable packaging: an oversized acrylic case with a field-cast base and themed panoramic backdrop that depicts the T. rex paddock.

This dino-mite collectible goes on sale today, August 23, at 9 a.m. PT for $25 from Mattel Creations. It is expected to ship by January 6 and is part of the ongoing Matchbox Collector line.
