A hilarious Funko concept inspired by Jurassic Park imagines a scented figure of Dr. Ellie Sattler standing in dinosaur poop. Released in 1993, Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park has established itself as a much-loved classic over the years. Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum, Spielberg adapted Michael Crichton’s novel, which tells of a dino-centric theme park gone awry. Jurassic Park’s massive success spawned two sequels in both 1997 and 2001 before the franchise received a complete reboot back in 2015 with Jurassic World.
This new age of Jurassic movies offered a similar cautionary tale about the dangers of playing God and toying with an extinct species, this time with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard starring. Similarly, Jurassic World received a sequel in 2018, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, following the enormous box office success of its predecessor, with the third installment, Jurassic World: Dominion set to hit theaters later this year. Pratt and Howard are both set to return, alongside Neill, Dern, and Goldblum, who will reprise their legacy roles as Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler, and Dr. Ian Malcolm, respectively.

Now, a fan has created a brilliant piece of concept art for a Jurassic Park Funko Pop! figure, which sees Dern’s character, Dr. Sattler, waist-deep in dinosaur poop. Shared to Instagram by @popvinylguy, the figure is perfectly reminiscent of the original scene in Jurassic Park, which sees Dr. Sattler examine a ginormous pile of Triceratops poop in the hopes of discovering why the creature is unwell. The art imagines the figure to have 6 inches of super-sized poop and jokingly calls for it to be scented. Check out the fun concept below:

Jurassic World: Dominion has remained somewhat shrouded in mystery throughout its production, with very little having been revealed in the way of plot. After filming began in 2020, the threequel was originally slated to hit theaters last summer but was pushed back due to the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that there isn’t long to go until the film finally hits the big screen, it’s been reported that Jurassic World: Dominion could potentially clock in at a rather lengthy 2 hours and 26 minutes, marking the longest Jurassic film to date.
With Jurassic World: Dominion now on the horizon, Funko fans are likely to get news of some incredibly exciting upcoming releases in the coming weeks. While popvinylguy’s post may have been a joke, there are likely a number of fans out there who would see this as a perfectly hilarious addition to their Jurassic Park figure collection, albeit perhaps without the scent. Many are incredibly excited to see Neill, Dern, and Goldblum return as their much-loved characters when Jurassic World: Dominion finally hits theaters, but for now, it remains to be seen whether this newest installment will see Dr. Sattler back with her arms deep in dino poop.
