Geek Pick of the Week: Prime 1 Studio’s Jurassic Park Diorama

Prime 1 Studio has just announced an incredible new diorama/statue based on one of the most iconic scenes in Jurassic Park, making an easy choice for our Geek Pick of the Week!

I know, I know…this one may not be the BEST choice for our Geek Pick of the Week feature if only because it won’t be out for a until NEXT year. Even so, with pre-orders currently available, I decided to cheat a little bit this week, because it’s just so damn cool.

Prime 1 Studio has officially revealed this uber swanky Jurassic Park diorama that beautifully recreates the ending sequence from the first film. With the T-Rex standing tall as the banner falls around him, there’s tons of neat stuff built into this 1/8th scale model.

The devil’s in the details on this one, even including LED lights, and swappable elements so you can recreate its battle with the Velociraptor, or show it already victorious.

Tyrannosaurus-Rex is the largest carnivore living on Isla Nublar and, as such, grew into a fearless, bold, and domineering beast who walks the line between heroine and villainess. She is a female Tyrannosaurus, largely motivated by two goals: keep intruders off her territory and eat any pry she finds there. She is known for participating in several incidents and for saving the major human participants involved in these incidents from other dangerous creatures, although inadvertently. This makes her role something of an anti-hero in the films.

The diorama is based on a famous scene called Tyrannosaurus-Rex Rescue, named after the title of its background music. This scene became an icon of the Jurassic Park franchise. It takes place in Jurassic Park (1993) Film and is the last scene of the movie.

We did our best to capture this epic scene and made it into diorama. The Velociraptor clawing and biting at T-rex’s neck, The Big One’s corpses lying on the ground, decorative skeleton’s parts scattered all over the place all those little details help to make it real. You can even decorate the statue with a banner that falls in front of her in the last scene while she roars as the sign of victory.

It looks gorgeous and supremely detailed, which is nice considering it comes in right around $2000. That’s pretty expensive, but with some payment plan options, it might still be worth starting on this Holiday season. The diorama is expected to launch between October 2020 or February 2021 (so maybe we’ll see it again on next year’s Pick of the Week!).

As the Holiday season approaches, we’re bringing back our Geek Pick of the Week. Each week leading up to Christmas, we’ll be highlighting a cool product we’ve found that we feel would be the perfect gift for geeks of all kinds. Use these to help fill in your own wish list or find the perfect gift for the nerds in your life. Click HERE to read more about previous Picks of the Week!
