No Dinosaurs Were Harmed in the Making of This T-rex Foot Garbage Can

Andrew Liszewski Jun 15, 2018. 5 comments

The illegal wildlife trade is a big problem around the world, leading some species to go extinct at the hands of humanity. But you don’t have to worry about the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service busting down your door to confiscate this T-rex foot garbage can. Dinosaurs are already extinct, and besides, this trophy is made from artificial materials like fiberglass and foam.

You might remember Regal Robot (the company that spun off Tom Spina Designs to create and sell high-end collectibles to fans) for its spectacular Star Wars Dewback sofa that was revealed last year. Shifting its focus to dinosaurs now that a second Jurassic World movie premieres next week , the company’s T-rex garbage can be customized with a unique paint job if you instead want it to look like a dragon, or alternate inserts if you’d rather have a prehistoric spittoon in your office.

Like Regal Robot’s $10,000 Dewback sofa, your T-rex trophy comes with a premium price tag. There’s a good chance you’ve never paid $649 for a trash can before, but you’ve probably also never had the chance to upgrade your office with a memento of a lost species. Until we actually bring dinosaurs back from extinction , this is as close as you’re going to get.

Thirty years ago if you offered a kid the choice between playing Super Mario Bros. and Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, the plumber would always win. But if asked to choose between studying fractions and playing an educational video game in the school computer lab, who wouldn’t go the Carmen route? It was the first computer game...

Like many of you, I was skeptical when news broke that Universal Studios Hollywood was re-theming one of its most iconic rides. Jurassic Park: The Ride, which opened in 1996, was becoming Jurassic World: The Ride. And, not being a particular fan of the new movies , this seemed like a bummer. However, I’m happy to report that the...
