Sometimes it’s easy to be amazed by the extremely large creations, and overlook incredible small ones. But some micro-builds are a constant reminder of just how impressive “little” can be. Small size definitely doesn’t mean less detailed or less complicated, and this build is a great example. One of our favorite builders, Grantmasters, has delivered another mini-masterpiece with this build he calls, “When a Kingdom Falls.” Yet again, his eye for unique parts usage has really shown through.
Easily recognizable as a scene from Jurassic World, you may also recognize that those T. rex legs are actually the arms from the full-size LEGO fig. There’s also a Battle Droid body used for the jaw. But my favorite part of this build is the pod. It’s cleverly crafted from 2×2 plates with rounded bottoms and Technic rubber bands. All these elements line up to make for perfect scaling and an eye-catching scene.
When the new wave of LEGO Jurassic World sets came out, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on the dinosaurs. The children in us immediately began stomping them around and making roaring noises. Here at The Brothers Brick, we are not ashamed to say we get giddy while playing with toy dinosaurs. We’re also not ashamed to say we are serious nerds. After our dino-dueling escapades, we began to wonder how accurate they are to the real things. As far as scientists can hypothesize, that is. So we did some not-so-archaeological digging — after all, it’s palaeontologists who study dinosaurs, not archaeologists, as Andrew our Editor-in-Chief (and resident archaeology buff) likes to remind everybody!
As it turns out, there is a vast amount of knowledge that scientists have obtained from the fossils of these creatures. That being said, there is a lot of information that they still don’t know, as well as much heated debate on the truth about each one. The Jurassic Park and Jurassic World franchise has been both heavily criticized and applauded for its attempts at realism. But without getting too wrapped up in the debates, we’ll take a look at the best working knowledge of these dinosaurs. So put on your favorite leather vest or red bandana and paleontologist’s expedition hat, because away we go!
