Flora and fauna are fused into one Veggiesaurus Rex

So, the name “Veggiesaurus Rex” in the title might be my own doing, but the LEGO-built Cyatheales Carnivorous is most certainly the work of Bionicle builder Toni A. The lovely color scheme of black lizard parts meshed with dark green vegetation is adorned with plenty of white claws and teeth. Plus those six red eyes – at least, I’m guessing they’re eyes – have finally locked onto the beast’s next meal. It might be a good idea to get out of here now before this raptor of roughage strikes.

LEGO Jurassic World 76964 Dinosaur Fossils: T-Rex Skull – Do we dig it? [Review]

Jaws has its shark. Alien has the Xenomorph. And the unofficial mascot for Jurassic Park is surely Tyrannosaurus Rex – the Tyrant Lizard King. These days, all we have left of this bipedal carnivore are fossilised remains, just like the ones depicted in an upcoming Jurassic World LEGO set. 76964 Dinosaur Fossils: T-Rex Skull will be available for US $39.99 | CAN $49.99 | UK £34.99 starting from January 1st 2024, but are its 577 pieces worth picking up? Grab your spades, brushes and picks, keep an eye out for fossils, and dig into our review to find out!

The mighty Giraffatitan takes a stand

What kid, or grown-up for that matter, doesn’t love the Giraffatian? When I was a kid we just called them a Brontosaurus, or Brachiosaurus if you were slightly smarter, but they have since been moved to their own genus by folks who are even smarter still. No matter what you call it, you have to admit this LEGO dinosaur built by Ken Ito is a magnificent sight to behold. It stands regal on its pedestal giving it the appearance of a trophy likely won for the feat of total awesomeness.


Just when I thought I’d experience total awesomeness overload, I learn this mighty Giraffatitan has a friend! It’s the Apatosaurus we featured last December now mounted on his own trophy stand. Please check out our Ken Ito archives to see what else we’re totally impressed by.

Titans on the Jurassic Land

Pint-sized dinosaur and friend are on the hunt

This adorable LEGO vignette of two characters from the animated show Primal, by Dan Ko is a fun scene. Even though it was built with a small number of parts, it is big on charm with some very clever part usage, like the Minifig bowtie used for the dinosaur’s eyebrows, and the claw part used for the feet. But that single clip for the two spindly front legs is perfect.

Terror of the Cretaceous seas

Two and a half years in the making, builder Cornbuilder gives us an awesome LEGO representation of a prehistoric terror. Meet the Tylosaurus Proriger, one of the largest known specimens of mosasaur. The average length of these mosasaurs was between 12-15 meters. To put that into perspective, the biggest predator in present-day oceans is the orca, which measures around 5-8 meters. Tylosaurus is nearly twice the size of an orca, and Cornbuilder captures this immensity beautifully!

King of the Seas

A great amount of care is shown in the seamless lines and curves of the creature itself. The studs along the surface lend a scaly texture to its skin. This predator is both beautiful and terrifying to behold! Below, sea life as it may have appeared in the Cretaceous Era plays out. With the coral, fish, sharks, and other aquatic life, the Tylosaurus looks even more intimidating and massive. Count me out of any Cretaceous diving expeditions!

I bet the enemy is glad it’s an herbivore

Mitsuru Nikaido has been busy creating quite a mechanical menagerie. The latest member of his mecha-petting zoo is a triceratops like you’ve never seen before. I normally find the triceratops to be an adorable, huggable creature. But Mitsuru’s trademark white armor-plating style makes him look like a machine ready for war. I imagine there’s not much the enemy could throw at this beast to slow it down. (But, I’ll be honest, I kinda still want to give him a hug.)

LEGO Mecha Triceratops_01

Brachiosaurus the Zoid Destroyer

Oh, Zoids. For those hip to this classic mecha series, it’s hard not to get excited when you see something like this pop up in your feed. When I see builders like Juan Fernando Vargas Correa celebrating the series with such massive LEGO models, I swell with nostalgia. I mean, Gundams get tons of love (as they should) but Zoids are rarely celebrated as much as they deserve. This model, which he calls a Brachiosaurus, is based on the Ultrasaurus. It’s giant body is designed to serve as a mobile command center with some serious armaments. Two massive, long-ranged Supercannons are mounted on its side along with a plethora of other weapons lining its shoulders, tail, and chest. Not only does it pack a punch but it can take one too. The builder’s color blocking and plating show off the massive amount of armor necessary for such a ginormous, lumbering beast to defend itself in battle.

ZOIDS Brachiosaurus

This thing is truly large and would be a beast to build. Hopefully it has lots of little vehicles and tiny Zoids to go with it, just like the kits would. That launch pad on its back certainly would hint at it, right? Builder Juan Correa will surely continue to impress with his awesome recreations and re-imaginings of these beloved toys.
