Mar 24 2009Own Your Own Velociraptor Trophy Mount

Remember the life-like Dilophosaurus mount that Geekologie Reader Josh made? Well he's at it again, this time with a 1:1 scale velociraptor head!

Up for auction is a full size replica of the Velociraptor from Jurassic Park. It measures 28 inches from the nose to base of the mount. It is made of high quality poly urethane resin that has been painted and sealed. The dinosaur is mounted to a wooden base that can be mounted to a wall like a trophy animal.

Josh is selling the head on eBay. Current bidding is at $200 with 6 days remaining. Now I really hope none of you outbid me, because this thing would look perfect mounted in my trophy room. And by 'trophy room' I obviously mean bedroom. And when I say 'bedroom' I'm talking the actual bed. And by bed I mean my ass. Sexy time!

Hit the jump for a couple more pictures and another link to the auction.

DO WANT!

SECOND. But I still want a furfaggot head on my wall

DO TOO!

I thought they had scary teeth and stuff...

You should only be able to own one if you are capable of killing one.

Shadaaap.

I meant.... do three ha ha ha ha FAIL

love it

OMG, my friend J in LA has a T-Rex head mounted like this in his living room - scared the crap out of me first time I saw it out of the corner of my eye. But it did match his lifelike moving wookie...

FIRST!
im gay we need more hot male stuff imo.. enough with the females!

@8. Oh, what about a mounted wookie head? Would that be bad?

DO WANT

UPDATE
NO ONE GIVES A SH*T ABOUT BIG FOOT

That reminds me of the time I mounted a wookie head. The wookie was surprisingly gentle.

would u pay for this? some people do...like that crap fish that sings....was a total ass non seller at first...then bang every one has one..even the quean of england...happy barry fish or summin.......point is...people spend mad money on crap.....again i ask.....why? why? why? why? why?...

Life size... do your research next time. Velociraptors were scaled up in Jurassic Park. They were the size of a dog (33 lbs)

Very creative and cool, though

I'd add a subtle blinking eyelid to that, one that closes about once every 20 mins or so.

"Did I just see....? Nah...."

I want an Ankylosaurus,
But the back end.

Still Chris Brown trophy mount would top all.

Why stop there? Get the whole set:

LOL

@14

Yeah I know how big Velociraptors really were, about 6 feet long. I made a "movie replica" of the Jurassic Park version. So the size is correct for what I made. The JP one is more close to the size of a Deinonychus or Utahraptor.

Josh, what do you do for a living?

TINA TURNER

Well the men come in these places
And the men are all the same
You dont look at their faces
And you dont ask their names
You dont think of them as human
You dont think of them at all
You keep your mind on the money
Keeping your eyes on the wall

Chorus
I'm YOUR PRIVATE DANCER
A DANCER FOR MONEY
ILL DO WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO
I'm YOUR PRIVATE DANCER
A DANCER FOR MONEY
ANY OLD MUSIC WILL DO

I wanna make a million dollars
I wanna live out by the sea
Have a husband and some children
Yeah I guess I want a family
All the men come in these places
And the men are all the same
You dont look at their faces
And you dont ask their names
Repeat chorus twice

Deutschmarks or dollars
American express will nicely thank you
Let me loosen up your collar
Tell me do you wanna see me do the shimmy again
Repeat chorus

It's ok, Dino Josh. Don't pay attention to the supposed know it alls. You did an awesome job! Man, if I didn't just buy a house, then I'd be all over that head.

I'm going shopping in your store now for things that I may be able to afford, now. Good day.

now nwo nownow! My grammar is all effed up, today. It's too early.

Thanks guys!

Well I am starting out as a Paleo artist. I am going to school (almost done) for movie special effects, but I like the museum type stuff better.

What? No feathers? Those nasty raptors had feathers all over their nasty bodies ... kind of like giant carnivorous chickens from hell ... they'll rip yer guts right out and eat em before you die.

Pay attention shitheads. Josh was not trying to replicate the speculated make up of the real raptor. He was emulating the ones in Jurassic Park. RMPL, this means you @ 14. Or was 26 more of a douche bag?

My first post in 3 months and I have insult people......Which is kind of what I did before, so, OK then!

Probably could have made it with gaping mouth and bigger mounting board with front claws on either side of the head but beggars can't be choosers I guess.

Josh, you have a future!

27- welcome back, my self-esteem was getting a little high...

Great head!!!!!

Hi from nosoloSporting

Hey, sorry to bump this thread, but I want to know if Josh is willing to do another one? I've been looking for something like this for a long time and it is by far the most realistic thing I've seen.

Jon

I would be willing to create these if anyone would be interested? Teeth and all.
They would be commissioned based. I also create Dragon heads on plaques.
