Jurassic Park Is Frightening in the Dark

IMG_0520This week, LEGO released a new series of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom sets. As part of that release, they also included their first ever Jurassic Park set, Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase, though it does bear the Jurassic World logo on the box instead of the logo from the original film. It’s a fool’s errand to make guesses regarding whether LEGO will return to the original movie/trilogy for future releases. However, I’ll happily brag about a simple build I did before launching this site.

In part, its simplicity made the final result satisfying. Mostly, the build required placing the components in the right configuration rather than a lengthy process of building numerous elements necessary to making the scene work. Revisiting it in the future with a more detailed background — using, say, the broken electrified fences in the background with a jeep in front of them — is a possibility, but time restraints and the need to work out other ideas (such as a return to Trumplestiltskin’s tale) make that unlikely.

Although I’m absolutely certain they don’t need it, LEGO has my blessings to release a more detailed set commemorating this scene. However, I have no expectations that they will actually consider doing so. It’ll be their loss; I imagine this could be a relatively inexpensive huge-seller.
