Life finds a way...to bring you a £450 Jeff Goldblum statue
It’s the news Jurassic Park fans the world over have been waiting for: it’s now possible to own a statue of a shirtless Jeff Goldblum in one his most defining poses as Dr. Ian Malcolm.
Thanks to Chronicle Collectibles, you can buy a statue of Goldblum in his iconic, shirtless pose for around £450 and you can pre-order the statue of Goldblum from Chronicle Collectibles via this link now.
As revealed at New York’s Comic-Con earlier this year, Chronicle Collectibles has captured all of Goldblum’s shirtless poses from the scene where he is famously injured.
Speaking about the scene, Goldblum said he was “suffering manfully”, adding “there was nothing sexy going on there.” You can watch his comments about the scene below:
A statue of the T-Rex next to the banner ‘When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth’ is also available to buy, as is a statue of Sam Neill as Dr. Alan Grant.
Last month (September 13), it was revealed that Goldblum was almost cut from Jurassic Park. Whilst he’s now regarded as one of the most beloved characters in the film, his appearance as Dr Ian Malcolm almost never happened.
Speaking in the special features of the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom DVD, Goldblum revealed that his now iconic role was originally set to be incorporated into that of Dr Alan Grant (Sam Neill).
“When I first met Steven Spielberg at Amblin, he came in and said, ‘You know, there’s a movement afoot, a new rewrite is happening, and your character, Ian Malcolm, is being written out,’” Goldblum revealed.
In the end, Goldblum’s character would become a firm favourite – as immortalised earlier this summer in the form of a 25foot statue that appeared in London.
Speaking about the statue, Goldblum said: “It was lovely, I liked that whole statue. I don’t know what it looked like in the flesh, or in the concrete, I didn’t see it. I saw pictures of it”, he admitted. “I think they took it down, but isn’t it making a tour, of some kind? Like the treasures of the tomb of King Tutankhamun?” Goldblum added.
Meanwhile, it was recently announced that Goldblum will play a jazz show in London later this year to mark his debut album.
