A tiny tyrannosaur terrorizes these tourists in a fan’s recreation of Jurassic World 76956 T-Rex Breakout

Just yesterday, LEGO released news of some new sets based on the Jurassic Park/World franchise. Inspired by the largest of the new sets, 76956 T-Rex Breakout, Nick Sweetman gave himself just 30 minutes to recreate it as best he could with the parts he had on hand, complete with a tiny T. rex. The result is a fabulous microscale recreation of a scene that should be recognizable to any fan of the original Jurassic Park film. Do you remember that scene where Hammond and Dr. Sattler are eating ice cream, and he talks about that flea circus he opened? That probably resulted in a similar scene about this size. Seriously, I bet everything that guy touches ends up in chaos…

It’s a pirate’s life for me down by ‘arr-bour

You might have missed it, but last Sunday was that silliest of holidays, Talk Like a Pirate Day. And to celebrate the occasion, Nick Sweetman built the local LEGO pirate hangout, the Skull and Crossbones Bar & Grill. The cutaway design is ingenious for giving you a feel for the building while letting you see all the piratey action, mostly consisting of lots of drinking and carousing—which seems about right. My favorite thing about this scene, though, is the multitude of pirates wearing that classic blue pirate coat. Often builders try to carefully make sure all the minifigures in a scene are uniquely dressed, but this somehow seems perfect to me for how LEGO pirates would dress and I absolutely love it.
