[11th June, 2019] The biggest LEGO brick T. rex set is making its way into LEGO stores from 19th June. Inspired by the blockbuster Jurassic World franchise, this brand-new set features the original Jurassic Park gate and a large, fully posable, brick-built T. rex.
This collectible set is made from 3,120 pieces and includes six Minifigures: Dr. Ian Malcolm, Dr. Ellie Sattler, Dr. Alan Grant, and new for 2019 – John Hammond, Ray Arnold and Dennis Nedry – as well as a baby dinosaur figure. The brick-built T. rex features snapping jaws, a posable head, arms, legs and tail. The set also comes with a Minifigure display stand complete with a T. rex fact sheet.
The ultimate display set for Jurassic World fans, it’s crammed full of references to the iconic Jurassic Park film with several fan-favorite moments built into the set. Hidden within the gates are a series of scenes from the film including the control room where Dr. Sattler finds an arm, a mud slide featuring a shaving cream can and a branch for Dennis Nedry to hang from. Additionally, found within the surrounding wall is a nest with two cracked dinosaur eggs inside, a bunker with a buildable bed for Dr. Malcolm, and John Hammonds’ dining room complete with a table and Minifigure chair.
The gates to Jurassic Park measure a towering 42cm high and 48cm wide – and can be unlocked using the trigger-operated gate opening function, and the T. rex measures more than 22cm high and 69cm long – making this nostalgia-filled model the biggest brick-built T. rex set ever.
The set has been designed by LEGO brick fan turned designer, Mark Stafford and his team. The design team also includes a dinosaur and fossil expert who has his very own collection of fossils lending to the authenticity of this set.
