Jurassic Park VHS standee

This Jurassic Park cardboard standee was used in 1994 to promote the sales of the VHS. 

It features stunning artwork of a Velociraptor breaking through its cage. The eyes are a nice detail since they’re amber with a trapped mosquito.

As a 12 year old kid I was really nervous when I went to the sales lady to ask if I could get it when they were going to get rid of it. She wrote my name and my parents’ phone number on a little purple paper and stuck it with some tape not he back. I remember going to the store every week to check if it was still there. When I finally got the phone call that I could pick it up, I was extremely excited.

I’ve always used this standee to display the Jurassic Park figures and small dinosaurs that I got when I was a kid. I can’t think of a better way to display the toys that ignited my passion for Jurassic Park…
