Dennis Nedry Review
Jurassic Park (Kenner) - Humans
Hello! I can end the rumors and speculation about why this figure looks nothing like Wayne Knight. You see, I'm the sculptor who created the prototype model for this and the other JP1 figures from Kenner. Indeed, Kenner wanted the character to be "heroic" for play value, but the real reason is that I sculpted these before the movie was even filmed. The role hadn't been cast yet! Other concept drawings did have him as a portly man in a suit, but nothing like the real actor.
I did the bodies first with generic heads. Later, when we got photos of the actors I did a new head. But Nedry was so different that they used the generic head.
I also did the JP1 model kits for Lindberg Models and the T-Rex model kit for Revel Models. If you do a Google search on "CHowes sculpture" you'll find my online portfolio if anyone is interested.
Ah, memory lane...
