Jurassic Park: Ian Malcolm Statue Proves Life Always Finds A Way
If there’s one thing we know about geek culture and the internet, it has a fascinating, if not sometimes unhealthy, obsession with Jeff Goldblum. This often includes his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park. Yes, whenever Jeffrey Lynn Goldblum graces the Internet with his recitation of classic video game quotes, or eating obnoxiously hot vegan chicken wings, his fervent fans are quick to praise their “daddy” figure.
Perhaps no part of Goldblum’s career has been as iconic as his performance as Dr. Ian Malcolm in the 1993 film Jurassic Park. Now, a premium Dr. Ian Malcolm statue is being released to celebrate perhaps Goldblum’s most infamous pose from the film, proving that life indeed always finds a way.
As seen on Sideshow, Chronicle Collectibles is releasing the new premium Ian Malcolm statue, depicting a reclining, majestic Jeff Goldblum. This statue references the scene from Jurassic Park in which Dr. Malcolm, with leg injured by the T-Rex earlier in the film, is shown resting with his shirt open to reveal his glorious, sweaty chest. The pose has since been a popular internet fixation, especially in meme culture, and Chronicle Collectibles was wise to capitalize on this obsession.
The polyresin 1:4 scale statue is 11.25 inches tall, and placed atop a circular base that shows a variety of dinosaur fossils beneath it. The collectible is quite highly detailed, down to the drops of blood on Ian’s hand and stomach, for optimum screen accuracy.
However, purchasing this statue will make fans spare no expense, as it comes with a $599 price tag and the statues will not be completed until October 2019 at the earliest. But for those that love Jeff Goldblum, they will certainly be glad that Chronicle Collectibles found that they could make this statue without stopping to think if they should.
