When the original Jurassic park film was released, a little over 25 years ago, it was one of the most impressive films I had ever seen, for the sheer scale of spectacle. Dinosaurs have always been impressive creatures, whatever your age, but the LEGO dinosaurs seen in the sets of recent years, while fun, have lacked a certain spectacle of scale. More a case of click in the legs, head and tail:”Rrrrrooooooaaarrrr, curse your inevitable betrayal.”
Today, the LEGO Group announces a LEGO Set to match the scale of that spectacle. With over 3100 parts, and costing AU$399.99 US $249.99 – CA $299.99 – DE €249.99 – UK £219.99 – FR €249.99 – DK 1899DKK, Jurassic Park: T. rex rampage promises a dinosaur adventure on a scale previously unseen in a LEGO set. It is designed for builders of 16 years and older.
This new set features 6 minifigures: John Hammond, Ian Malcolm, Alan Gran, Ellie Sattler, Ray Arnold and Dennis Nedry, drawing on the original film, while the new return to Isla Nublar sets flesh out some new adventures.
This epic build features a huge brick built T. Rex, as well as massive gates for the park itself. Turning the gates around, we see vignettes fitting each of the minifigures included.
I had the privilege to see this model in real life at the recent fan media days, and I can say that the included pictures do not do it justice.

Look at the size of that thing! it is huge. This is certainly a set that I am looking forward to getting. While it is expensive, the cost in Australia is comparable with that in Europe and the UK. The set goes on sale later this week through LEGO retail outlets.
