Last week, three new exclusive items went up for sale at ThinkGeek. These new statues are being produced by Chronicle Collectibles, and included a Jurassic Park T-Rex, a Labyrinth Ello Worm and a The Dark Crystal Chamberlain. Today, were taking a look at one of those new items in our newest photo shoot and review of the Jurassic Park Tyrannosaurus Rex Statue. This new release is a scaled down version of the very popular Breakout T-Rex, which is now sold out from Chronicle. While that release was a large scale and priced at over $500, this release is in a smaller scale and costs a fraction of the price at just $59.99.
Chronicle Collectibles was kind enough to send along a T-Rex Statue to check out. After the jump, you can see my full photo gallery and thoughts on the release. You can order the statue now by Clicking Here.

- Reasonable price

The T-Rex comes packaged in an elongated windowless box. The packaging features nice design elements pulled from Jurassic Park. There’s a small picture of the T-Rex on the box as well. The statue is packed in a resealable clamshell tray. No assembly is required, and the dino is ready for display right out of the box.
Right out of the box, I was impressed by how nice the T-Rex turned out. The statue measures about 12″ from nose to tail, and stands roughly 4″ tall atop a themed logo base. The dinosaur features a very detailed sculpts from head to tail. There’s nice texture work for the reptile-like skin, with lots of intricate details, especially on the head. The paint work is strong as well, with a nice bit of airbrushing to add depth to the skin tone, and strong line work on areas like the eyes, teeth and claws. The color used a bit more saturated and bright compared to the larger scale version, and it helps make the statue pop nicely when on display. The T-Rex stands atop a logo base that holds it in position nicely. The statue feels sturdy, and the base is nicely detailed with an aged golden look to it. The statue itself is cast in a resin-like plastic, with some iron bits used to add structural support.
This T-Rex statue is an easy recommendation for Jurassic Park fans, or fans looking to get into collecting items from Chronicle. The $60 price point is much easier to swallow compared the larger scaled items they produce, but the quality doesn’t appear to have suffered. This is available online at ThinkGeek, and most likely at GameStop stores as well. Check out some select photos below and the full gallery after that.
