One of the standout moments in the trailers for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was footage of Chris Pratt’s character training baby velociraptors. Do they become lethal killing machines when fully grown? Yes. But as babies? They’re adorable! Who wouldn’t want a tiny velociraptor of their own? Well you can now get one, without finding some dino-DNA and engineering them yourself.

Chronicle Collectibles is now taking pre-orders for a limited edition, full-sized replica of Baby Blue the raptor from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. It’s about 97cm long and made out of polyresin, designed directly from Industrial Light and Magic’s digital assets. Of course, that kind of quality doesn’t come cheap, so the piece runs $US1000 ($1305). Here are some more photos.
“As soon as we saw the footage of Baby Blue interacting with Owen, we knew right away this was something we wanted to recreate for fans,” Paul Francis, creative director for Chronicle, said in a news release.
“Thanks to our great working relationship with Universal and ILM we were able to bring Baby Blue off the screen and into a real, tangible form for collectors and fans alike. This is a terrific piece to honour the legacy of Jurassic Park, which now stands at 25 years strong and has no signs of stopping.”
