As an owner of all 4 previous JJP pins, it was a slam dunk in my mind to get a WW once they make it over to the UK in late fall. However, have been struggling with reconciling the cost of even the standard WW pin given the seemingly punitive decision to make the artwork so basic and the mechs so limited. I have 4 kids, so Willy Wonka did seem like a kid friendly theme though and all my JJP's are built like tanks, so love the quality. Having now seen the new Stern Jurassic Park pin, I'm re-thinking my NIB purchase this year. Didn't buy IMDN because of the theme, but thought the layout and rules were superb. My boys love Jurassic Park and there is no lack of interest in dinosaurs or the theme despite it being a 90's film. The logo and merchandise still sell on T-Shirts and games, the film is still watched and holds up well. Is this Jurassic Park a better more relevant pin for the kids and still packed enough to be challenging. At the price of the paired down JJP standard I can get a premium Jurassic Park to sit next to my TSPP and B66. What do you think, WW or Jurasic Park?

Quoted from konghusker:

I voted for JP, but not because I think it will be better than Wonka, but rather different. You said something kids will enjoy, and a T-Rex eating ball never gets old. I believe Wonka will be just as good a game, but something that us older but kids will enjoy more as a nostalgic memory. JP looks awesome and action packed and will attract kids to try feeding the Trex.

Yes, having seen the stream, Jurassic park looks much better for kids. Just way more modern and will draw the video game generation in.
