Lego Unveils 25th-Anniversary ‘Jurassic Park’ Velociraptor Chase Set
Its all here: The Unix system! The kitchen pantry! A Velociraptor that, yes, is a very clever girl!
With Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom hitting theaters in May, Lego’s already unveiled six awesome new playsets designed around the new movie. Naturally, they’re fantastic. But in all the hype surrounding Jurassic World, a lot of dino fans have overlooked the fact that 2018 is also the 25th anniversary of the original Jurassic Park. Fortunately, Lego has not forgotten.
To commemorate the movie’s silver anniversary, the company released a 360-piece Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase set this morning. Centered around the visitor center from the classic film, the admittedly smaller set includes two scenes: the computer control center (“It’s a Unix System!“) and the kitchen area (We hope the doors are buffed to a high shine to help reflections confuse the raptors). Actually, the set comes with an embryo cold storage container, so it’s almost three full rooms.
All rooms are equipped with ton of cool accessories including a computer desk, ladder, telephone, door locking system (You can push the button to keep the Velociraptor out!) , not to mention eight dinosaur embryos, walkie-talkies, and that famous can of shaving cream (“Dodson! We’ve got Dodson here!”). Plus, a gun stud shooter.
Because you need characters to recreate scenes, minifigs of Tim and Lex Murphy, Ellie Sattler, Alan Grant are available with the set. Obviously, the Velociraptor is included too. It has posable limbs and snapping jaws, because it’s a very clever girl.
The set, which is technically still part of the Lego’s Jurassic World line (as is evidenced by the box), is officially available on the company’s website for $40.
