First off, the cup-and-plate set simply came from the Islands of Adventure theme park in Orlando, Florida; hence, why on many of the item titles you will see the acronym IOA for Islands of Adventure. USH stands for Universal Studios Hollywood.
Next, no they are not statues. If you had looked at the spreadsheet file and matched up the "items numbers" listed in the spreadsheet up to the photo captions, you would then know it is:
TLW:JP Dino Ornament Display, Glass - T-Rex Art 4 JP2ART-1002
TLW:JP Dino Ornament Display, Glass - Stegosaurus Art 4 JP2ART-1003
So put simply, they are christmas tree ornaments. Very rare in fact. They were originally manufactured by some premier christmas tree ornament artist named Christopher Radko.
Lastly, as for the crate, I will simply quote what I said on another forum about the crate:
"The crate in question was simply a special promo item displayed around theaters at the time TLW:JP originally premiered in 1997. I believe originally it was suppose to maybe have some green plastic plants and vines inside that would poke out of the cracks and edges for effect. However, as the photo indicates, that is not the case here obviously. But anyone could easily just add plant foliage themselves. Anyways, inside the crate is a simple electronic audio chip mechanism of some sorts that is connected to a switch on the lid of the crate. So that, when a person removes the lid to open the crate, you "presumably" would hear a dinosaur roar. However, the electronic mechanism itself is non-functional so I'm only guessing. Even when I originally bought this crate off eBay a long time ago, it has never worked since I've owned it. Only someone with electrical hardware expertise could maybe repair it somehow."
