#ThrowbackThursday: Kenner Jurassic Park Carnotaurus Design Sketch (Exclusive)

Hey everyone, it’s Thursday and that means it’s time to look back into the prehistoric past of the Jurassic franchise! Today for #JurassicJune we have a very special exclusive throwback: the original conceptual design sketch of the Kenner Jurassic Park Carnotaurus! This sketch dates back to around 1992, and is straight from the table of the artists themselves (note the clay smudges!) Check it out in its full glory below:

The Jurassic Park Series 2 Carnotaurus released in 1994 and is one of the more iconic and sought after classic Jurassic toys by collectors. Due to its rarity and fan favorite status, it nets a hefty price if you manage to find one now (upwards to $500 MIB). This piece of art is an awesome, previously unseen part of Jurassic history that gives a very rare peek behind the curtain of its creation.

  1. I absolutely love seeing original Kenner art like this. I am amazed that this stuff ever survived. It has to be insanely rare!

    If one looks closely, they can see where Kenner changed the position of the Dino-Damage wound cover from the upper torso to the tail (like the actual production piece).

    Very cool guys!
