Lego has officially announced the release of five new Jurassic Park-themed sets, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the iconic first film. These sets are all inspired by scenes and locations from the movie, and they will all be released in June. However, the most unique feature of one of these sets is perhaps the giant pile of dinosaur excrement included in it.
The Jurassic Park Franchise
Jurassic Park is a movie franchise that has remained popular to this day, even after 30 years of its initial release. It was directed by Steven Spielberg and released in 1993, and the movie’s groundbreaking CGI, large-scale dinosaur models, exciting action, and Jeff Goldblum’s performance made it one of the biggest films of the year. Since then, the franchise has expanded to include games, books, and comics, and it has captured the attention of viewers around the world.
The New Lego Sets
Universal Pictures and Lego have teamed up to release a new wave of playsets that are inspired by the first Jurassic Park movie. The new sets will include scenes and locations from the movie, and they will be released in June to coincide with the film’s 30th anniversary. One of the sets, the $50 Triceratops Research set (76959), will feature a giant pile of dinosaur excrement that is based directly on a scene from the original movie.
The Pile of Dinosaur Excrement
In the original movie, the group stumbles upon a sick dinosaur about halfway through the film. One of the characters, Dr. Ellie Sattler, suspects that the dinosaur might have been poisoned by a plant’s berries and investigates by digging elbow-deep into a giant pile of dinosaur excrement left by the sick animal. When Goldblum’s character arrives near the excrement, he famously exclaims: “That is one big pile of shit.”
Lego has made sure to include this very pile of excrement in the new set, complete with a Lego piece representing the berries that Dr. Sattler was searching for while digging in the movie. Although Lego has not included a lot of piles of excrement in its sets, this one is particularly impressive. It is the largest pile of excrement that has ever been included in an official Lego set, and it will undoubtedly provide children around the world with hours of fun.
Other Sets in the Collection
Despite the spotlight placed on the pile of excrement in the Triceratops Research set, the other sets in the Jurassic Park-themed collection are also impressive. For example, Lego is finally releasing a Lego brachiosaurus in one of the sets, and the prices for all of the sets are reasonable. The collection will be released on June 1, so be sure to keep an eye out for it in stores.
The release of the new Jurassic Park-themed Lego sets is an exciting event for fans of the movie franchise. The sets are inspired by locations and scenes from the original movie, and they will be released in June to mark the 30th anniversary of the film. Although the Triceratops Research set is perhaps the most unique set of the collection due to its inclusion of a giant pile of dinosaur excrement, the other sets in the collection are also impressive, with Lego finally releasing a Lego brachiosaurus in one of them. Regardless of which set you choose to purchase, the release of these Lego sets is sure to provide young and old fans alike with hours of fun.
