The world-famous Danish toy company has revealed the next LEGO Ideas fan creation, an awesome dinosaur museum-themed set, aimed at young palaeontologists (and kids at heart).
The new Dinosaur Fossils LEGO set comes from the LEGO Ideas platform, which encourages fans of the tiny plastic bricks to come up with their own unique concepts. The public then gets to vote which of these ideas should be put into production and become a reality. The Dinosaur Fossils set was designed by Jonathan Brunn, a graphic designer residing in France.
“When I was little, my passion for dinosaurs was almost obsessional,” Brunn said in a release. “Dinosaurs were the most incredible thing ever for me, so I made this project to please my inner child! I would have loved it as a kid, and I think every kid who loves dinosaurs and science would agree with me.”
The set features three dinosaur skeleton models; a Triceratops, a Pteranodon and, of course, no dinosaur collection would be complete without a T.Rex, which comes in at a total length of 15.4 inches.
Each dinosaur skeleton is posable and the set contains 910 pieces, with each dinosaur having its own little display stand so that you can have your own little museum on your desk.
Strangely the set also contains a skeleton wearing a familiar fedora seen on the head of a certain adventure-seeking action hero (cough… Indiana Jones). All that is really missing here is his whip.
Of course, no dinosaur skeleton set would be complete without a minifig palaeontologist and, luckily, the set does include just such a minifig.
The Dinosaur Fossils set will be available from the 1st of November, just in time to remind that special someone in your life that the festive season is just around the corner. Retail cost will be around $59.99 (R885).
