The Book by Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park, was published in 1990 and the movie version, directed by Steven Spielberg, was made and released in 1993. Kenner's release of the 1st series of Jurassic Park toys coincided with the release of the movie.
The first five figures that were manufactured had a plain black background behind them. However, after about a month on the market the company decided to change it and it became the so popular jungle background that everyone associates with 'Jurassic Park'. Moreover, the first version of the figures was not a really accurate one. Later, the maker took the time to make more accurate copies of the actors and actresses that appeared in the famous movie. This was done in the so called 'Series 2' of the 'Jurassic Park' toys.
The second series, however, was very hard to find and expensive to buy. Some of the toys were never released. The difference between the first and the second series is only in the fact that the later made toys were better sculpted and resembled the real people a lot. Other series of toys dedicated to the 'Jurassic Park' movie were the 'Dino Trackers' and 'Evil Raiders'. They made a huge success on the market and were all sold out. All of the 'Jurassic Park' toys are valuable items for collectors and fans of the movie.
