The 'JAWS' corner - a display of some of my JAWS items, including a JAWS movie poster, Sideshow JAWS maquette, a cast-from
screen used JAWS tooth signed by production designer Joe Alves, Movie maniacs JAWS dioramma and a 'Beach Closed' replica sign.
|Sideshow Exclusive JAWS maquette:
An impressive 28" long, this awesome limited edition piece was produced by Sideshow in 2006. This is the exclusive version
which came with several blueprints for the original movie shark.
The 'Beach Closed' replica (featured in the original movie) was built and painted by me, following screencaps of the screen-used
signs as closely as possible.
"Let Polly do the printing!"
|Amity 'Beach Closed' sign replica:
|I constructed and handpainted this sign to match the original prop
The Movie Maniacs JAWS set features an impressive rendering of the ORCA, capturing the moment when Quint is taken by the shark.
McFarlane did a great job with this model - the detailing inside the ORCA is great. It makes a super display piece and can
still be found at a reasonable price on eBay.
|Movie Maniacs JAWS diorama:
This next piece rates as one the absolute favouties in my collection. It's a cast from the original molds 'Bruce the shark'
tooth, from the original movie. It has been painted and signed by the production designer for JAWS, Joe Alves.
Incidentally, Bruce was named after Spielberg's lawyer at the time...
In the original movie, Brody is seen reading some shark books at home. After some detective work, I managed to track down
copies of the exact same books, including a vintage copy of 'National Geographic' from which many of the images seen on-screen
Here are a couple of pics of my book - these are the same pages as seen in JAWS:
