New commercial discovered with a different cover art

Post by Deadeyeguy_45 »

Found this on archive a couple days ago and it's something I haven't seen before. But take a look at the box art, there's no splintered wood on the left side. Plus, there seems to be claws on the bottom half of the box.

A very neat find. I've never heard Trespasser was in a commercial, even if it is with the movie. And it is interesting with it being from January 1998 with a coupon.

Never seen that art, but it seems like some early WIP of what was finally finalized IIRC in June 1998 (based on that eBay listing)!

Nice find, thanks for sharing :) Are there any alternate or additional Rex vs soda machine frames in here? Been a long while since I saw the trailer it was also in.

Interesting... too bad about the video quality.

Interests me a little that a different box art was had. It might be what started my wonder if this Raptor is from a TLW promo image, done custom by Tres devs with paint, or a stock footage of the animatronic so buried in the materials from Universal that it never got used for other things they put out.

"I see it." [said Sarah]

"The box is in backward. Flip all the switches the other way. Are you dry?"
"No, Doc. I'm soaking wet, lying in the damn mud."

I assumed it was the same image, but edited/enhanced?

Well my eyes may be playing tricks on me but the angle seems a bit different.

It is similar, but I think it is some early concept of it.

The one on the left of the image in Draco's post looks a lot like the brown TLW Raptor on the right in this image:

Seems they took this image and moved the right hand further up to me.
My guess as to where the final box art came from is potentially an close-up of one of the Raptor animatronics directly from the TLW set? If I remember correctly the developers did have access to the set at some point.

Hmmm, I looked at the brow ridge, and it still seems a little different...

That could be. Maybe Steven let them come on set for their own references.
