Despite what your 12-year-old neighbor thinks, movies about theme parks set in artificial dinosaur habitats didn’t start in 2015 with Jurassic World starring Chris Pratt. They started back in 1993 with the Steven Spielberg classic Jurassic Park, based on the Michael Crichton novel of the same name. And as part of this year’s wave of LEGO sets tying into the latest sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, LEGO isn’t missing the opportunity to celebrate Jurassic Park’s 25th anniversary by taking us back to Isla Nublar. 75932 Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase includes 360 pieces, and is available beginning April 16 for $39.99 USD from the LEGO Shop Online.
It’s looking more and more like each LEGO theme will be getting the BrickHeadz treatment, with the reveal today of the first official box art and product photos of the BrickHeadz from the next installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (due in theaters this June). Following the combo-pack release of two characters in a single set we first saw with 41489 Rey & Kylo Ren last year, 41614 Owen & Blue features the protagonist played by Chris Pratt alongside a brick-built CGI dinosaur. The set includes 234 pieces, and we’ll bring you an update when we have a firm release date and price.
Blue is the first non-humanoid character released as a BrickHeadz (even the seasonal BrickHeadz like the Valentine’s Day Bee and Easter Rabbit are fairly anthropomorphic), so it will be interesting to see how LEGO recreates other animals and creatures in the future.
Live from the show floor at New York Toy Fair 2018, we’re taking a closer look at the LEGO Jurassic World line-up that will be on sale later this year. The sets are based on the upcoming movie Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, due for release in movie theatres in the US on 22 Jun 2018. Fear not, we have put the set images after the jump to prevent any unwanted spoilers.
There must be something about Jurassic Park that LEGO fans are fond of, because there seems to be a never-ending stream of cool Jurassic Park builds. We’ve certainly covered quite a few of those neat Jurassic Park LEGO builds on The Brothers Brick in the past. This time around, it’s a super-sleek Jeep Wrangler from Jurassic Park built by hachiroku24. The scale of this build closely mirrors that of the vehicles that appear in various LEGO sets, however this Jeep is much more intricate than most sets.
Perhaps you want to build your own version of this Jeep? Fortunately, the builder has been kind enough to create a wonderful instructions video and post it on YouTube for us all to enjoy. And build.
I must admit Jurassic Park was one of the most impressive films of my childhood. Of course, it was because of dinosaurs. But even before the dinosaurs appeared on the screen, I fell in love with the grey and red Wrangler jeeps that the characters used to travel around the park. And now Silva Vasil invites us to see a prehistoric reptile in this jar-dropping copy of the iconic off-road vehicle.
John Hammond would no doubt approve of this Jurassic Park vignette by Combee! who makes his first appearance on TBB. This build really captures the scene by reducing it to only the most essential elements. Also, the floating Hammond-head is a little creepy and it looks to me as if he’s about to consume the baby raptor. It is probably a good thing the builder chose not to use Dr. Sattler’s face, I’m not sure that her expression can be captured with LEGO.
