Dr. Hisoto and his trusty pal, Jun, are on their way up the mountain. Amongst the cherry blossoms, they are searching for the herbs the doctor needs to make medicine. This lovely build is the work of Jme Wheeler. We have featured Jme’s builds several times, and they are all packed with character and detail. This is a wonderful addition to his repertoire.
The cute little cart is loaded down with bags, filled with the precious herbs that are essential in Dr. Hisoto’s medicine.
It’s difficult to find what I like best about this build, because it’s such a nice little package. The landscape is neat and beautiful, and it’s loaded with detail without being overly cluttered. In addition, the rockwork and foliage are a wonderful marriage. I also love the spring with the cascading waterfall and cherry blossom petals.
A fun twist in this tale is, of course, Jun. He may or may not actually be portrayed as a dinosaur here (vs a mythical creature like a dragon), but he’s a cute addition nonetheless. The single-mold figure is from the 2015 polybag set 30320 Gallimimus Trap, which was once a GameStop exclusive giveaway with the purchase of the LEGO Jurassic World video game.
Fun fact: this Gallimimus actually looks nothing like a real Gallimimus, which was smaller, with a little head, long neck, and a beak. The figure was also used in other sets, and called a Coelophysis, which is much more accurate. If you find this interesting, check out our Dino Field Guide for the 2018 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom sets.
Oddly, the Gallimimus/Coelophysis mold is a lot closer to the actual size of the movie Raptors than the official LEGO Raptors, which are closer to the size of the Indoraptor from the movie.
