The pre-order period for this life size Jurassic Park raptor bust starts next Friday.
When I saw the original Jurassic Park in theaters in 1993, I was 12 years old. I had a pounding headache and directly after exiting the theater, I threw up in the gutter behind the exit doors. But I vividly remember one part of the movie during which my head didn’t hurt. And that was when the raptors go after Tim and Lex in the kitchen. During that scene, I was riveted, wondering just how they would avoid those no-good raptors. It’s an all-time classic suspense sequence, and I can’t help but be reminded of it looking at this life size Jurassic Park Raptor bust coming from Chronicle Collectibles.
(Also, check out the Chronicle T-Rex above. Crazy awesome!) So, let’s get into exactly what we’re getting into.
