    This was painted a satin black then, the weathering effect was done by using an acrylic Dove Gray paint, then wiped off with water while the paint was still wet.

    The picture doesnt do it any justice. The gray paint is nicely put into the nooks and crannies of the claw.

    Looks like a recast Icons version, which was cast from the claws of the animtronic raptors.

    Que up the kitchen scene where the two raptors are chasing the two kids -- one taps his claw repteatedly on the floor.

    Yeah, that's a great shot of the claw and would make a nice screen cap for a display.

    But that scene's from JP... and Darth D says this claw is from JPIII. Or is it just the paint job that's JPIII specific?

    Was the Icons claw released in connection with a particular one of the films?

    It was released shortly after the original JP film, along with the Velociraptor egg... Great paint job :thumbsup

    Thanks for the comp.

    The scene in JPIII is when the kid was showing Dr. Grant the claw he found, as Grant was holding his version of a fossilized claw walking through the woods.
