Anyone who knows me personally knows that Jurassic Park is my all-time favorite movie. When I saw it when I was 11 years old, I was amazed on how real the dinosaurs looked. After watching the movie at least 50 times, yes 50, throughout my life, I still can’t get enough of it. I’m at the point where I know the dialogue and know what each character is going to say.
Last week, the BrickQueen has posted a Jurassic Park project on LEGO CUUSOO, the Jungle Explorer T-Rex Encounter. The project features the Jungle Explorer SUV, Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ian Malcolm, Lex Murphy, and Tim Murphy minifigures, and the T-Rex.
The Jungle Explorer is based on a Ford Explorer XLT and has a removing glass on the top of the roof to get the “shattering” glass feature when the T-Rex attacked the vehicle. The SUV will be able to seats all four minifigures and has the utility box in the back that stores a flare and a flashlight. There were also night goggles in the movie but it’s not included at this time. They may be added later in a future update.
Another part of the project includes the fence part of the Tyrannosaur Paddock where the Rex breaks through the 10,000 volt electrified fence while the power was out. It even has the decal for the voltage sign and the warning lights.
Overall, I really like the design of the project by the BrickQueen. I’ve already put in my support and hopefully many other Jurassic Park fans will show their support of the project as well. Let’s get it to 10,000 supporters and maybe, just maybe, we’ll be seeing an official Jurassic Park LEGO set in the future.
