The Jurassic Park franchise is an ideal playground for Lego, which is why Sami Mustonen can’t stop won’t stop putting up concepts on Lego Ideas. He’s already launched Indominus Rex and Jurassic Park Tour Car concepts, and now he’s gone a step further with a new microscale Jurassic Park set.

Set includes main exterior scenes from the movie Jurassic Park in microscale:

Helicopter arrive
Brachiosaurus safari
Raptor Pit
Visitor center
Main Gate
Tyrannosaurus Rex paddock

There is also micro brick version for every main character (can you spot who is who? 😉 ) + Normal scale Alan Grant, Ian Malcolm and Ellie Sattler minifigures.

If it gets the necessary 10,000 votes, the set might just make it to store shelves.

See more pictures after the break.
