The T-Rex Tranq Gun is a promotional Kenner blaster that was released in 1997 to promote the film The Lost World: Jurassic Park. It requires two "AA" batteries to operate its lights and sounds.

It comes packaged with two Micro Darts, and two "AA" demo batteries.

Details

The blaster is a bolt-action single-fire blaster, similar to the Max Force Eagle Eye. Like the Eagle Eye, a scope is also included, which lights up when the trigger is pulled. Reloading and firing sounds will play when the blaster is primed and fired. The bolt is only found on one side of the blaster; it is absent on the left side.

Despite being sold as a movie-based product, the T-Rex Tranq Gun bears very little in common with any of the three tranquilizer guns seen in the movie.[2]

History

It was sold in 1997 alongside the Dino-Tracking Gear Set.

Trivia

  • The term "tranq" in the name of the blaster is an abbreviation for "tranquilizer".
  • While advertised in a 1997 catalog to include three darts, the final version of the blaster only came with two.
