"Eighteen minutes and your company catches up on ten years of research."
It would seem that the world has caught a dino wave, with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom now having made over $1 billion at the worldwide box office. I trust that many Toy People have taken the opportunity to rewatch the previous films in the series as well. Chronicle Collectibles has unveiled a replica of the Barbasol Can, a key prop device from the original Jurassic Park film, which will be available for pre-order this summer!
At John Hammond's invitation, Dr. Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler journeyed to Jurassic Park. We see computer programmer Dennis Nedry in a shadowy meeting with corporate rival Dodgson, plotting to steal the dinosaur embryos from the island in exchange for a large sum of money. To aid Nedry in his efforts, Dodgson introduces a special storage canister disguised as a Barbasol shaving cream can. Chronicle Collectibles has partnered with Universal Pictures and Barbasol to bring a replica of this hi-tech shaving cream canister!
▼ Nedry is extra giggly in this clip, and the way that the embryos fit in the canister is oddly satisfying...
From the images available so far, the Barbasol cannister recreates the in-film design and can be opened from the bottom to insert the dinosaur embryos, with a spring included so that the contents can pop out. Unfortunately the can contains neither shaving cream nor a frozen storage function. Stay tuned for updates on this product!
