The Jurassic World films recently brought the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park back from the dead (once again). But, there is something nostalgic about the original film that has film fans replaying it time and time again. Perhaps it is the simplicity of the origin story or the look of the dinosaurs. Either way, the new Jurassic Park: T. Rex Rampage 75936 Lego Set lets LEGO collectors delve into this story once more.
There are two main elements to this build: the dinosaur and the Jurassic Park gate
There is something iconic about the design of that gate. You can almost hear that legendary score play as you build it up brick by brick and swing open the gates. You have to use your imagination that there is a park beyond – or build it from other bricks in your collection. The gate measure 42cm tall and houses some secrets that add to the creative play. There are different rooms inside the structure including the bunker, dining room and control room. There are also 6 minifigures of classic characters that can occupy the space and direct the story.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Jurassic Park without a dinosaur on the rampage. This is where this new LEGO set earns its 16+ rating. The amount of detail and the moving parts on this model are impressive. There is a realism in the colour and anatomy that is on par with the CGI of the 1990s. There are 3120 bricks in total in this set and builders can spend ages crafting the moving head, puny little T-Rex arms and the long, destructive tail. Let him chase after the human inhabitants as it tries to protect its young. The nest, cracked egg and baby dinosaur are also included in the set. Snap his jaws near the helpless team for a narrow escape. The dinosaur is 22cm high and 17cm wide, which means he could storm those gates and escape.
There is plenty of detail in this set to keep builders happy for a long time
This set will appeal to many collectors because of the detail in the dinosaur build, the number of bonus features for the Jurassic Park story and the way it looks as a static model. You can choose whether to keep the figures in their room or on the display stand. This Jurassic Park: T. Rex Rampage 75936 Lego Set is one that will impress fans of all ages and one that elevates the potential for dinosaur building with LEGO bricks.
