Dennis Nedry (Jurassic Park) -- From Obese IT Guy to Ripped Dinosaur Hunter
Portly actor Wayne Knight is best known as Newman on Seinfeld, Michael Jordan's publicist/exact physical opposite in Space Jam, and the guy who looked at a vagina in Basic Instinct. His biggest claim to fame, however, is as computer technician Dennis Nedry in Jurassic Park, aka the asshole who sets in motion the whole plot by trying to steal some baby dinosaurs. As a result of his machinations, all the dinosaurs are set free -- one of which spits a black goop on his face and eats him. Nedry's surprisingly buff action figure, however, suggests that the character not only managed to escape the attack but immediately hit the gym and came back to the island to chew bubblegum and punch dinosaurs. And brother? He's all out of bubblegum.
"All that empty sugar? Fuck that; gotta keep lean."
Nedry's nerdy (we see what you did there, Jurassic Park) glasses have been replaced with cool shades. His shitty windbreaker is now a fashionable green turtleneck sweater with '70s cop-style shoulder-holster. He comes equipped with a "tranq-spray gun" instead of diabetes. But perhaps most baffling is the fact that Nedry now comes with his own pet dilophosaurus -- the same species that murdered him in the movie.
This is like packaging Bambi's mother with a shotgun.
According to the guy who sculpted this figure, the reason Nedry looks completely different from the actor is that he had to create the prototype before the movie was cast. This being the early '90s, he of course couldn't just Google "who are they casting as Nedry I hope he's not fat and dorky."
