In recent years, LEGO® has expanded their offerings to include licensed sets based on popular movies, TV shows, and franchises. One of these licensed sets is LEGO® Jurassic World, which is based on the popular movie franchise of the same name. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at the LEGO® Jurassic World sets and the relationship between the toys and the movie, as well as the dinosaurs that they are modeled after from paleontology.
The Jurassic World Franchise Told Through LEGO® Bricks
The Jurassic World movie franchise is a series of action-adventure films that follow the events of the original Jurassic Park film. The movies are set on the fictional island of Isla Nublar, where a theme park featuring cloned dinosaurs has been created. As you can imagine, things don’t go according to plan, and chaos ensues as the dinosaurs break free from their enclosures and begin to wreak havoc on the island. The LEGO® Jurassic World sets are based on the various dinosaurs and characters featured in the movies, and they allow LEGO® fans to recreate scenes from the films or to use their imagination to create their own dinosaur adventures.
LEGO® Jurassic World are set apart from other traditional sets with the attention to detail that goes into creating the various dinosaurs. Each set features a different dinosaur, from the mighty T-Rex to the ferocious Velociraptor, and each one is designed to be as accurate as possible to what we know about the real-life creatures. For example, the LEGO® T-Rex has a large head with powerful jaws, small forelimbs, and a long tail. These features are all based on what we know from the fossil record about this fearsome predator.
In addition to the dinosaur models themselves, the LEGO® Jurassic World sets also include a number of vehicles and playsets that allow children to recreate various scenes from the movies. For example, there is a set that includes a helicopter and a net launcher, which is based on the scene from the first Jurassic Park movie where the characters attempt to capture a Velociraptor. Another set features a research outpost and a Dilophosaurus, which is the dinosaur that spits venom in the first movie.
Overall, the LEGO® Jurassic World sets are a great way for children (and adults) to explore the world of dinosaurs in a fun and interactive way. The sets are not only a fun way to play, but they can also be educational as they provide a glimpse into the world of paleontology and the amazing creatures that once roamed the Earth. Whether you’re a fan of the Jurassic World movies or just love dinosaurs in general, the LEGO® Jurassic World sets are sure to provide hours of entertainment and imagination.
