In the original Jurassic Park, our final glimpse of the magic of the cloned dinosaurs is of the escaped Tyrannosaurus-Rex just having fended off the ferocious Velociraptors for our heroes. She bellows out an earth-shattering roar in the visitor center rotunda as a banner reading “WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH” gently falls down in front of her. Without a doubt, the scene is one of the most memorable in cinematic history.
Long-time fans of Chronicle Collectibles know we have wanted to do this particular piece ever since we started making Jurassic Park statues. After countless hours of research and design, we are finally ready to bring forth our new limited edition 1:9 scale T. Rex in the Rotunda statue. Yes, you read that correctly, 1:9 SCALE! At approximately 21.5” tall by 22.5” in diameter, this is the LARGEST Tyrannosaurus-Rex beyond our 1:5 full-size Tyrannosaurus-Rex. This also means that the T. Rex in the Rotunda statue is in scale with the Owen & Blue statues.
This magnificent piece presents T. Rex with her mouth in a roaring pose as she stands defiantly atop a scene-specific circular base. Underneath her is a cutaway revealing dinosaur fossils buried underneath. The “WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH” banner seemingly defies gravity as it drapes down below her. And sharp-eyed fans will be pleased to see that Rexy comes battle-damaged with wounds inflicted during the Velociraptor fight.
With the 1:9 scale T. Rex in the Rotunda statue, Chronicle has brought CG glory to life and captured one of the greatest scenes in dinosaur film history! If you’re a Jurassic Park fan, you’ll deeply regret missing out on this 1:9 scale T. Rex in the Rotunda statue once it’s sold out.
WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
The Rotunda Rex Statue specially features:
Approximately 21.5 inches tall and 22.5" base diameter
It definitely does. I wish someone was there to take more pics. They’ll bring it to SDCC, but the lighting in their display there doesn’t make it easy to take good pics. It’s much better conditions at the smaller convention.
