Don’t be the only billionaire on the block that DIDN’T get his kid a full-size T-Rex skeleton for Christmas this year. Yes, this is actually being sold by Hammacher Schlemmer (naturally) and the details are as follows:
Spanning 40′ from tail to snout, this is the life-size replica fossil skeleton of Stan, a Tyrannosaur first unearthed in South Dakota’s Black Hills in 1992. Found in a disarticulated state (each bone was separated from the others), Stan’s skeleton fossilized over millions of years with little-to-no distortion or crushing, making him the most complete (190 bones) male Tyrannosaurus rex ever found. This museum-quality replica is expertly crafted using GI-1000-grade silicone molds that impart stunning, authentic detail to the polyurethane resin casts that faithfully preserve the healed injuries Stan suffered during life, including a broken neck and ribs as well as puncture wounds in his skull and lower jaw. Supported by a cleverly concealed steel structure, Stan can be customized into any anatomically possible pose desired by a complimentary assembly crew, whether vertically at 15′ tall as if surveying the landscape or horizontally at 12′ tall as if lunging for prey.
It costs $100,000, but that figure includes and assembly crew that will pose it however you like. Personally, I would want to buy a giant Optimus Prime sculpture and recreate this tattoo.
