The Jurassic Park project by Senteosan is the latest one to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. This comes only 43 days after Jurassic Park/Jurassic World projects were allowed again on LEGO Ideas when LEGO resolved their licensing conflicts back in October. If you remember, this same project was taken down in September 2013 because another construction toy company had the license for the IP. By getting 10,000 supporters in a very short amount of time, it shows that people do want to see this project as an official LEGO set. As we know by now, LEGO will be releasing Jurassic World sets around May 2015 so we’ll see if Senteosan’s project will be able to pass the review stage.
As my favorite movie of all-time, this Jurassic Park project had my complete support from the beginning. The set recreates the iconic scene at the Jurassic Park gate when Alan Grant, Ellie Sadler, and Ian Malcolm took the tour ride in the very familiar Ford Explorer. It also includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex that wrecks havoc to one of the Explorer Tour Vehicles when the power went out at the park. The minifigures that are included are the Alan, Ellie, and Ian in their movie accurate outfits.
Jurassic Park now joins a packed lineup in the Third 2014 Review Stage which includes the Avengers Helicarrier, the Labyrinth Marble Maze, the F7A, The Goonies 30th Anniversary Inferno, The Natural History Museum, and Lord of the Rings Set: Minas Tirith. Although there are many worthy projects in this review stage, I do hope this project will come out victorious in the review stage. LEGO and the original Jurassic Park, two of my favorite things combined? It will be a definite first day purchase from me.
