In case you haven’t heard, LEGO is teaming up with Jurassic World!
Expect an all new Chris Pratt LEGO doll and possibly terrifying dinos!
That’s right. The LEGO Group and Universal Partnership & Licensing have officially collaborated to bring us Jurassic World branded LEGOs.
The movie directed by Colin Trevorrow and starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will premiere on June 12th, 2015. The partnership between LEGO and Universal includes the release of several construction toy sets to be released in May, 2015 and supposedly also a video game.
This isn’t a bad thing at all! After all, we finally got Doctor Who LEGOs and that’s been cool. Star Wars LEGO and LOTR LEGO sets are huge hits with the kiddos at the holidays, and as a young child myself, I was always envious of the boys who were old enough to build the pirate ship. Now kids will have the chance to build a Jurassic Park? Um…I’ll be buying these next Black Friday for myself, thank you. At least someone at Nerd Approved will play Jurassic World LEGOs with me.
We don’t actually have concept art to display yet. Undoubtedly, it will be epic, as are all the other LEGO sets that are fantastically branded. Besides, did you see The LEGO Movie? Yeah, things are getting serious in LEGO Land–they aren’t kidding around–so I think we can be wowed by what’s certain to come in May 2015.
Unless, of course, it’s based on this Jurassic World Concept Art that was tossed around for a possible Jurassic Park IV. In that case, this just may not be appropriate for children at all. But it seems like these pitches were thrown out a few years ago. We’ll see…*shudder*
Naturally these Jurassic World LEGO sets will certainly be cool, but they’ll never be Jurassic Park 1993-plastic-dinosaurs-with-gaping-side-wounds cool:
