THE 32CM TALL CERATOSAURUS (ONE MILLION YEARS B.C.) POLYRESIN STATUE
From ONE MILLION YEARS B.C., 1966
The classic fantasy film One Million Years BC featured dinosaurs and other creatures brought to life by the stop-motion genius of Ray Harryhausen. Star Ace’s next release from this film is the menacing Ceratosaurus, known for battling a Triceratops that had been chasing our heroes, the caveman and the cavegirl. As the cavepeople fearfully watch hidden in the nearby rock formation, the two huge dinosaurs fought to the death. This Ceratosaurus is a 30 cm tall Polyresin statue sculpted to match the original Harryhausen stop-motion model exactly. It features a detailed, hand-painted color scheme, and comes with the rocky outcropping display base. The set includes scaled figures of the caveman and the cavegirl that can be positioned in a variety of ways. The Ceratosaurus is in scale with the Star Ace Triceratops and can be displayed together to recreate the scene from the movie (each sold separately). Created in partnership with the Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation and the 20th Century Fox.
