This is Star Ace Toys’ second polystone resin statue based on the dinosaurs and other creatures from Ray Harryhausen’s classic One Million Years B.C.Continue reading “One Million Years B.C.– Triceratpos Statue”
I was born just a couple of years after the release of Hammer Film’s One Million Years B.C. The first time I remember seeing it was on some old black and white television sometime in the mid-1970s. And it scared my little 7 or 8-year-old me out of my mind.
Ray Harryhausen did all of the stop motion animation for the dinosaurs, and Star Ace Toys is making a line of statues based on Harryhausen creations, including the dinosaurs from One Million Years B.C.
That includes this polyresin version of the Ceratosaurus that fights with the Triceratops. Ironically, while Ceratosaurus was initially depicted as bipedal as seen in the movie, by the end of the 19th century it was already known that the animal actually walked on all fours (much like the Triceratops).
But as Harryhausen put it, he didn’t make his dinosaurs for “professors…who probably don’t go to see these kinds of movies anyway.”
