Is it an odd anniversary to celebrate? Maybe, but that’s not stopping Lego from unleashing an amazing new set.Lego spared no expense when they put together Jurassic Park: T. Rex Rampage. They faithfully recreated the Park’s massive entry gates, packed in a bunch of iconic scenes from the movie, and topped it all off with a gigantic, brick-built Tyrannosaurus rex.Let’s take a look at the minifigs that come with the set first. There wouldn’t be a Jurassic Park without John Hammond, so naturally he’s included. You need a paleontologist and a paleobotanist to sign off on things, and that’s where Alan and Ellie come in.There are a lot of high-tech systems in Jurassic Park, too. Fortunately Dennis Nedry and Ray Arnold are up to the task. And yes, there’s a sexy Jeff Goldblum that you can use to stage minifig memes as well as Dr. Ian Malcolm’s scenes from the movie. His head is dual-sided, so you can choose between serious and sweaty or scared and sweaty expressions.Ellie and Ray can change to a look of panic, too, and so can Dennis — Lego printed him with a glob of venomous Dilophosaurus spit (thanks, InGen!) right in the middle of his face.The real star of the show, though, is the mighty T. rex.He’s huge (27 inches long!), he’s got a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth, and he’s ready to chomp down on whatever poor sap decides to hide out on the buildable toilet — because of course Lego wasn’t going to leave out the infamous toilet.Equally massive are the park’s gates. They’re more than 16 inches tall and 18 inches wide when fully assembled. Technic gears let you crank the gates open. Spin the gates around and you’ll find the characters’ scenes built into the back.There’s one scene for each. Alan discovers a nest with freshly-hatched eggs. John helps himself to a bowl of ice cream. Dennis slips in the mud and meets with an untimely end. Ellie restores power to the park’s systems and Ray works frantically to get vital systems back online.The set goes on sale on June 19 for Lego VIPs and July 1 for the general public. It’s priced at $249.99 in the U.S. and will require a good chunk of your time to assemble. It takes 3,120 pieces to build Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage.Watch: Animated ‘Jurassic World’ Series to Premiere on Netflix in 2020More on Launches Stunning 50th Anniversary Tribute to Apollo 11Lego’s Massive ‘Stranger Things’ Set Will Turn Your World Upside DownLego Made Bricks to Help Kids and Adults Learn Braillelast_img
