If there’s one scene that captures the wonder of “Jurassic Park” before things get dangerous, it’s the first time Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler, and Dr. Ian Malcolm see a living dinosaur on Isla Nublar. With their signature “Spielberg face” expressions on full display and John Williams’ all-time great score providing plenty of musical magic, this is one of the most memorable moments of the movie, and now you can recreate it with the “Brachiosaurus Discovery” set. In fact, this LEGO set actually allows you to create a few different scenes.
The centerpiece of the LEGO set is a tall tree and a brachiosaurus figure that you piece together. Since the LEGO set also comes with an alternate version of the “Jurassic Park” Jeep, you can easily recreate the moment that our main characters see the brachiosaurus chomping on a tree early in the movie. I can’t tell you how happy I am that this set lets you build a version of the Jeep that is quite different from the version found in the “Dilophosaurus Ambush” set.
In addition, the tree also features a platform in the middle, where you can place Dr. Alan Grant with Lex and Tim after they escape the deadly t-rex and meet the brachiosaurus a little more up close in the tree. Of course, if you want Lex and Tim, you’ll have to get the “T-Rex Breakout” or the “Visitor Center T-Rex and Raptor Attack” (seen further below).
As for the Easter eggs, there’s another frog colored like one of the salmon-colored flowers sitting on the side of the tree trunk. But that’s not all, because there’s a literal egg shell situated at the base of the tree.
That means you can actually create another scene from the movie, where Dr. Grant, Lex and Tim discover that the dinosaurs have started to breed in the wild. That’s quite the versatile LEGO set for $79.99.
