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 they have wanted to do this particular piece ever since they started making Jurassic Park statues. After countless hours of research and design, they're finally ready to bring forth the limited edition 1/9th scale T. Rex in the Rotunda statue. Yes, you read that correctly: 1/9th scale!
At approximately 21.5 inches tall by 22.5 inches in diameter, this is the largest Tyrannosaurus-Rex beyond their 1:5 full-size Tyrannosaurus-Rex. This also means that the T-Rex in the Rotunda statue is in scale with the Owen and 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!
