Prehistoric Collectibles Unleashed (http://www.sideshowtoy.com/behindtheshow/?page_id=4336)

I've been posting about this in another section of the boards, but the thread I had been posting in was designated for the old Hasbro toys, so I thought it would be more appropriate to start a thread here about this line. I am beyond thrilled about this, as Jurassic Park was to me what Star Wars was to many children of the 70s. I was even more excited to find out that the first item in the line will be what is essentially my personal "Holy Grail" of collecting, something I have wanted made for as long as I can remember:

My favorite scene from my favorite movie, perfectly realized. I've already placed my pre-order. After a start like this, I can't imagine what amazing pieces they'll come up with.

I might have to get this piece, later on. My hope is that the price may come down a bit.

Great job by SS.

There's a brief Backstage Pass video on the product page now. Apparently the painter has done work with full scale dinosaur statues in the past.

What a beautiful, albeit expensive, piece from Sideshow. It's something I would love to add to my collection someday. I don't see it in my near future, but certainly someday.

I'm hoping for some individual dino maquettes. Cant wait to see how this turns out.

They've now posted final product and boxed shots, as well as announced a new line - "Dinosauria." Good stuff.

Have they ever announced another piece for this line?

No, and I'm afraid the Dinosauria line is going to end this one. I love dinos in general, don't get me wrong, but there's plenty of companies that make generic dinosaur statues and just about nowhere to find JP stuff.
