Looking for a way to instantly add some sex appeal to your menagerie of official Jurassic Park collectibles and keepsakes? Why not welcome the steamy swagger of the sci-fi adventure's charismatic chaotician, Dr. Ian Malcolm, into your home or office?
Today at New York Comic Con, Texas-based Chronicle Collectibles revealed plans to produce a new 1/4-scale reclining Ian Malcolm statue that fans and admirers can now pre-order for a 2019 delivery. Cast in premium polyresin and hand-painted for screen accuracy, this confident tribute to the shirtless scientist will set you back $599, but that's a small price to pay for all that excess of personality.
What began as a memorable moment from Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster, which celebrated its 25th anniversary this past June, has now turned into a full-fledged pop culture touchstone and internet meme sensation.
Fans first caught a glimpse of this awesome Ian Malcolm at Chronicle's NYCC booth on Friday, where they were able to PRE-ORDER one for themselves or go to their website and snag the smug, sarcastic genetics expert before the allocation is gone.
Chronicle's limited-edition Dr. Malcolm captures the sultry essence of Jeff Goldblum's performance in exacting detail and comes lounging on a custom, scene-specific base with a cutaway revealing dinosaur fossils buried underneath. It stands 10" tall, on an 18" diameter base and expects to ship to customers in the fall of 2019.
"Let’s face it. This is the perfect representation of all that is Jeff Goldblum," Chronicle Creative Director Paul Francis told SYFY WIRE. "Every fan needs this in their collection. Taking what has now become an iconic image of not just Jurassic Park but of Goldblum himself and turning into a statue was a really fun project for us. We’re so thrilled to debut this piece at NYCC and make it available for order during the show.”
Chronicle also debuted an impressive 1/9-scale T. Rex in the Rotunda this weekend as a possible companion piece to your Malcolm masterwork, and is available now for PRE-ORDER. This primeval beast is the biggest Tyrannosaurus rex figure on the market after the company's own 1/5-scale full T. rex.
Cast in polyresin and measuring 22” tall on a 22.5" diameter base, it's priced at $1349 and includes a “WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH” banner. Its scene-specific base is crafted with a special cutaway revealing dinosaur fossils buried underneath. Expects to ship sometime in late 2019.
“The Rex in the Rotunda has become the new personal favorite in the office," Francis added. "It is the quintessential pose and scene from Jurassic Park, come to life in a killer statue.”
