Welcome… to LEGO Jurassic Park. LEGO has officially revealed 75936 Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage, a behemoth of a set towering nearly a foot and a half high and clocking in at 3,120 pieces. The set comes with the largest brick-built dinosaur ever released in an official LEGO set–a gigantic Tyrannosaurs Rex–along with the iconic front gate to Jurassic Park and six minifigures including John Hammond, Ian Malcolm, Ellie Sattler, Alan Grant, Ray Arnold and Dennis Nedry.
The set will retail for US $249.99 | CAN $299.99 | UK £219.99 beginning June 19th for LEGO VIPs (free for anyone to join) with general availability beginning July 1st.
Update: be sure to read our review of 75936 Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage, which includes an interview with the set’s designer.
26 years ago today, the original Jurassic Park hit theaters and changed cinema forever. Movie-goers had never seen such realistic CGI before, and were blown away by what they saw. The combination of masterful direction from Steven Spielberg, a thrilling score from John Williams, and a suspenseful story by Michael Crichton made your knuckles white with anticipation waiting for what the dinosaurs would do next. No wonder it was one of the first movies to almost hit $1 billion at the box office.
To celebrate that milestone in global cinema, LEGO has created a new set of practically prehistoric proportions: 75936 Jurassic Park: T .rex Rampage. The set comes with 3,120 pieces, placing it in the company of sets like 70840 Apocalypseburg and 10221 Super Star Destroyer in terms of similar piece counts, though impressively cheaper than both by US $50 and $100, respectively, coming in at $249.99 when it hits shelves next week.
The Tyrannosaurs Rex reaches over 8 inches high (22 cm) and can stretch out more than 27 inches long (69 cm) all with snapping jaws and posable head, arms, legs and tail. When TBB visited LEGO headquarters in Billund, Denmark last month, one of the designers of the set Mark Stafford said this is literally the largest dinosaur they could make and still have it be fully posable. He continued saying that the massive creature pushes the outer bounds of what LEGO joints are capable of holding–and it shows looking at these photos of the Tyrannosaurs Rex on a rampage.
The iconic Jurassic Park gate measures over 16 inches tall (42 cm) high and 18 inches wide (48cm) and comes with a trigger-activated gate that opens both doors in at the same time. The front signage is accomplished with a few well-placed stickers along with the many torches and vehicle tracks on the ground to bring the jungle location to life.
Six minifigures are included in the set along with a display stand, baby dinosaur and a UCS-like sticker with Tyrannosaurus Rex facts. John Hammond (with his amber walking stick), Ray Arnold and Dennis Nedry are brand new in minifigure form. Ellie Sattler and Alan Grant were previously included in last year’s 75932 Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase (which also came with kids Lex and Tim Murphy), and Ian Malcolm was previously available in the hard-to-find Jurassic World Bricktober pack, though this version is a bit more bare-chested, slashed up and sweaty.
Four minifigures have alternate faces each showing surprise at what is happening in the park around them. Ian Malcolm looks like he just had a close encounter with a T-Rex, Ray Arnold looks like he is about to lose a limb, Ellie Sattler appears to be a little nonplussed, while Dennis Nedry just got some poisonous phlegm to the face from a Dilophosaurus on the lam.
The back wall of the gate features the opening mechanism and seven detailed scenes inspired by the movie, with hidden Easter eggs galore.
One of the scenes features a bunker with a buildable bed, flashlight, fire extinguisher, ladder, and supplies on some shelves, utilizing the bare-chested sweaty Ian Malcolm minifigure to great effect.
John Hammond spared no expense with dining room complete with ice cream and green jello. Ray Arnold gets the control room with a buildable desk and three computers, and Ellie’s scene features the power shed where she is trying to turn the lights back on… maybe Ray can give her a hand!
Dennis Nedry gets a tiny scene on the left with a slippery mud slide and shaving cream can, Alan Grant is learning that life finds a way while exploring a dinosaur nest at the top with two cracked egg elements, and we get a cute buildable bathroom on the right (it is sadly empty, so I guess the T-Rex already got the lovable lawyer Donald Gennaro).
