Better Run… Or Get Your Camera Out

The News Is Out

Today the LEGO Group announced some great news for all fans of Jurassic Park AND for toy photographers. Whether you’re into dinosaurs or not, this set will probably be a gem if you like to spend your time taking pics of toys.

The Set

The new set to come, 75936 Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage,  will not only consist of a fantastic model of a beautiful dinosaur as the Dino will be  accompanied by a giant gate and six minifigures (three of them brand new). Additionally, the gate will be framed by a wall. If you turn this around there will be six rooms that were inspired by movie scenes. That sounds like a whole lotta fun!

The Dinosaur

This new T. rex is a GIANT! What’s new about this lady is that she’s so very detailed and fully poseable, making her great fun to go on a photo shoot with. Just think of where to take her and what adventures to witness (and capture in pictures). What alternative story, apart from the movie scenes, do you already see before your imaginary eyes?

The Minifigures

Here are the pictures of the minifigures that weren’t included in last year’s Jurassic Park set.

The details

And here’s more photos of the gate:

P.S.

When we were in Billund for the RLFM days we had the great pleasure of talking to the designers Mark John Stafford and Marcos Bessa . We hardly got to ask any questions we had prepared as our attention was almost completely taken by the new dinosaur and its prototype version. We still found out that the actual model was worked on for five months to get it the way it looks now, as the trickiest part was to get it balanced perfectly. Congrats to the team for creating such a beautiful model!

There are rumors that there’s a little box on the way to Finland. Once the content is fed and tamed there will be some more photos to look forward to…

The Corner Garage

Last year around this time, The LEGO Group announced my absolute favorite set of 2018. And they are doing it again. The corner garage unveiled. 

The Corner Garage

The new Creator Expert 10264 Corner Garage is the natural extension of the Downtown Diner. No doubt,  I will be queuing at my local LEGO store here in Stockholm on January, 2nd to pick up my Xmas present.

A new Diner in town

10260, Downtown Diner

It is not every time we get a press release in the mailbox from TLG we all go, yeah, great, let’s share it. You all have access to the more mainstream LEGO news outlets like TBB, The Rambling Brick or Brickset. They do a much better job of sharing with you all the great new LEGO sets being released. So we normally don’t want to spam you with a rehash of the latest news and focus on our creative journey. But once in a while, we cannot control ourselves, and this is one of those times. There is a new Diner downtown, and we can’t wait to go to the grand opening, put some coins in the jukebox, mingle with the citizens of LEGOville and get a milkshake or two. Oh. And while we are there, get a few creative images of this awesome building. Continue reading “A new Diner in town”
