    I know there are alot of Raptor claw replicas out there, but ive never seen anyone offering or having Grant's 6 inch claw, and since i was in 3-4th grade thats the one ive always wanted, so I've started sculpting one, hoping to finish soon. Ive got this reference of a PIH auction and another original that was on ebay years ago and a few screencaps. Just thought Id share in case theres anyone else out there like me :p Hopefully all of the small cracks and details will come out on camera once its painted and weathered.

    Yeah, I've always wanted to get a nice replica similar to the one used in the show. I already have a casting of the Icons version but I'd rather have something that's more true to the show.

    Bro, you know the Icons claw was pulled from one of the animatronic raptors, right?.

    I know it's a different claw than what we're talking about but it is from the film just the same.

    This is true...

    After having lost the auction (and holding the original in my hands), I figured I'd just make my own.

    I finished it over a year ago, and wanted to pop out quick and cheap ($10 or so) copies, but I totally suck at creating molds, and never saw the project through to the molding/casting point.

    I like the sound of the cracking and scratching grooves detail in Kylash's. I'm not a master sculptor, and finished mine with a smooth surface. I just figured I'd get the right look via a detailed paint job.

    Id like to see yours if youve got any pics :) But yeah, i noticed that first shot in the movie of the diggers excavation scene is this prop and it has lots of little detail, as it should being a fossil. Hopefully theyll come out good in molding.

    sweet thanks. I may alter the finished item after seeing those a little, its already painted and mostly done but there are a few more details seen in those shots. Thanks.

    Per request, here's mine... Interesting to see slightly (but notably) different interpretations of the claw.

    Very nice work on yours.

    Very nice work, it looks very much like something that could've be found in a dig site.
