LEGO Debuts Jurassic Park T. Rex Rampage Set for the Movie's 26th Anniversary
Jurassic Park roared into theaters on June 11, 1993, and 26 years later, elements from the film—from the theme music to the Tyrannosaurus rex logo—have become still iconic. In honor of the anniversary, LEGO Jurassic World has announced a new set that recreates some of the most famous scenes from the original movie.
The 3120 toy bricks in the Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage set come together to form the Jurassic Park gates and a hulking T. rex model. The posable dinosaur with snapping jaws has six minifigures to terrorize: Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, John Hammond, Ian Malcolm, Ray Arnold, and Dennis Nedry. A baby dinosaur toy is also included.
The 16-inch gates leading to Jurassic Park can be opened with a trigger. On the other side of the facade are chambers holding bonus items and scenes from the movie. Ellie Sattler can investigate the power shed, Alan Grant can study a dinosaur nest with eggshells, and Dennis Nedry can drop his fake shaving cream can down a mudslide (the Nedry minifigure even has a face depicting what he looks like post-Dilophosaurus attack). And though a minifigure of lawyer Donald Gennaro is missing from the set, there is a toilet in case you want to recreate his infamous death with another character.
The Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage set (as well as a smaller Jurassic Park-inspired set called Dilophosaurus on the Loose) will be available for $250 when it's made available in stores and online on July 1. If you're looking to recreate even more of the movie at home, you can pick up the velociraptor chase scene set that came out last year.
