Jurassic Park Statue Imagines Raptor Pen Breakout That Wasn’t in the Movie

Monday, July 6, 2020

A cool (and expensive) new Jurassic Park collectible statue shows the infamous raptor pen breakout that the movie never showed. Clever girl!

Jurassic Park collectible statue reveals the infamous raptor breakout that isn't shown in the movie. Steven Spielberg's classic 1993 film was based on the novel of the same name by Michael Critchon and helped create a whole blockbuster franchise. Despite there now being five Jurassic Park films (if one includes the new Jurassic World installments), the original Jurassic Park is still considered the very best. Through its story about the fictional amusement park where dinosaurs live once again and the humans who get trapped inside, Jurassic Park thrilled audience back when it was released and still does so now. In fact, Jurassic Park just topped the box office once again two weeks ago.

While the tyrannosaurus rex poses a terrifying threat in Jurassic Park, it's the velociraptors who are truly the villains of the film. The opening of Jurassic Park even establishes just how fearsome they can be when one manages to kill a park employee during an enclosure transfer. Initially, the raptors are kept locked in their enclosures, but following the park's loss of power, they manage to escape. For much of the film, they terrorize (and even kill) several of the poor humans stuck inside the unopened Jurassic Park.

While Jurassic Park never fully explored how the raptors broke free from their enclosures, a new statue from Chronicle Collectibles imagines that very moment. The statue depicts a raptor standing in the middle of broken wires, ready to run free and wreak havoc. It feels like the perfect purchase for a die-hard Jurassic Park fan, but be warned: It costs $549.99.

Considering how the raptor breakout wasn't shown in Jurassic Park, it's actually a clever subject for this statue. In a way, it enhances the film and reveals something new, even if it's something fans have probably already imagined. The raptors play major roles in all Jurassic Park films, including the newest installments. In fact, Jurassic World turned the raptors into the good guys and gave some of them names, like beloved dino Blue.

Audiences will get to revisit the world of Jurassic Park one more time with next year's Jurassic World: Dominionwhich aims to resume filming tomorrow, July 6, after being shut down since March. Fans of the original film have even more reason to be excited for this next one since it'll see the returns of Alan  Grant (Sam Neill), Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum). While Goldblum appeared in the previous film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, it was only for a quick cameo. Jurassic World: Dominion, however, will feature all three in more substantial roles. Maybe they'll be reunited with some raptors along the way.
