We’re digging into the Jurassic World set from LEGO, featuring the ferocious T-Rex, a buggy, a helicopter, a garage, and a few action figures from the movie. You can let your imagination run wild with this one. But first, you have to build it!
The Pieces You Will Need
The LEGO set 76944, also known as the T. rex Dinosaur Breakout, is a comprehensive set that includes a variety of pieces to create an exciting Jurassic World scene. Here’s a breakdown of the pieces included in the set:
|Airport with Helipad and Garage||The main structure of the set, serving as the base for the action.|
|Toy Helicopter and Buggy Toy Car||Vehicles for transporting the dinosaur and minifigures around the scene.|
|Posable T. rex Dinosaur Figure||The star of the show, a posable T. rex figure.|
|Collapsible Fence and Opening Cage||Interactive elements that enhance play, including a fence that collapses and a cage that can be transported.|
|Minifigures||Owen Grady, Zia Rodriguez, and a wildlife guard to bring the scene to life.|
|Accessories||A dinosaur egg, walkie-talkie, and tranquilizer element to add detail to the scene.|
You can start with whichever part you feel like, from the buggy to the helicopter. However, after opening up the box, you’ll probably be drawn to the T-Rex first.
While the rest of the set goes together how you would expect, with each LEGO snapping together easily, the T-Rex is a little different. Each component is perfectly designed to snap easily onto the next, starting with the head, and working your way down to the tail.
Once you have your dinosaur built, you can get to work on the rest of the set. After all, you’ll need a playground for your Dino to go wild. And this set gives you plenty to work with.
