Bricksauria escapes from Jurassic Park

Posted by ,

Senteosan of recent Cuusoo Jurassic Park infamy has gotten his project to the doorstep of 5000 support without a single word from Cuusoo. This is very unusual as they usually give a comment at 1000.

As Jurassic Park is set for Kreo in 2014, many people suspect that all the Jurassic Park projects will be archived anyway.

Possibly in response to this, Senteosan has relaunched his amazing dino as a Jurassic Park independent "Bricksauria" and suddenly we have a new, mind boggling well crafted project independent of any IP.

I love that Tyrannosaurus Rex design, the best of luck to him. I have supported the project.

I would rather see a UCS Dino of this caliber...

That's an awesome T'Rex. I hope it makes it. ^_^

This was probably the best option that he could have taken by creating a new project with this model... I think the chances of us seeing a Jurassic Park set are Zero...

And of course he can always add to this project with more dinosaurs... Similar to the fantastic birds series...

If this was a set i would buy it for sure. unless everyone bought it before i had a chance to.

It is a superb model but too similar to LEGO's Creator dinos for it to pass review, IMO. It also looks a bit unstable. A great display piece, but one that probably falls apart as soon as you breathe on it.

Dinosaurs were around before Jurassic Park Novel/Film/License. Nothing to stop lego releasing T-Rex

@Huw, It does look quite fragile with such small ankles, though the main body looks pretty substantial to me.
But apart from it being a dinosaur I can't see even a slight similarity to anything done before. The way the organic contours and colours of the body are created is stunning, it looks sinewy and strong. I'm really glad it's been separated from the doomed JP theme (doomed by Kreo and Brickqueen in equal measure!), I'm supporting it for sure.

What defines "UCS"? Size? Part count? Attention to detail? Because this model doesn't have any of these attributes in any particularly large way. It's not a bad project; I'm just wondering about the UCS label.

@lego613master, Well if you think you think about it, all those things define a UCS model. Because the more pieces the model has, the bigger the model is, the bigger the model is, the more detail can be put into it.

Anyway the model looks great! Though a bit unstable looking, like Huw said.

That dinosaur is just... amazing. And I have owned #4507 in the past. One thing is for certain: if I saw that dinosaur at a Lego store, I'd buy it without thinking, it is that stunning ;-)

^ i wish i had 4507 it looks awesome,but i a set called ferocious creatures from 2010 that can be built in to a
green dinosaur.

@Paul Boratko: Creator has a wide range of dinos in addition to the one you mentioned.

http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=4998-1
http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=6751-1
http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=5868-1 (B model)
http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=4418-1
http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=7798-1
http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=6914-1
http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=20003-1
and so on and so forth.

Not to mention the motorized Monster Dino, http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=4958-1.

Now, arguably most if not all of these don't come anywhere close to the Cuusoo project. However, it is precisely things like sturdiness, part count and part mix that are responsible for that. And this model will have to be brought in line with all these constraints, too.

So while I went ahead and supported the project, I do agree with Huw that it is quite similar to what TLG already have on offer, and it will only become more similar still once it's made to satisfy all the usual requirements. At which point TLG will of course ask themselves why they should be sharing the profit for something they are doing anyway.

Cool! Much better as a dinosaur build than a Jurassic Park build...I'm tiring of 'a small vehicle and collection of minifigs from a movie related franchise' submissions on Cuusoo!

^^I still don't see it. All the leg joints will need something added to firm them up, but the level of detail within the compact design is light years ahead of any of those Creator sets. I just hope the Cuusoo judges see it the same way and that the joints can be strengthened without making the whole model as painfully basic as 6914.

And @lego613master - I think it's the level of detail within the compact design and that so many aspects of the design have display rather than play in mind that make it UCS - in fact, those are the things that make this set infinitely better than any of those Creator sets to my mind!

This project is spectacular.

LEGO had the Jurassic Park IP for Studios, did it just blow away in the wind?

I think if they had still had it, it would have been used for the more recent Dino theme.

I've just finished writing Universal Studios corporate about why I want Lego JP and will not buy Kre-O JP. I encourage you to voice your desire if you will: http://www.universalstudios.com/contact_form.php?email_id=35

Public demand makes a difference. In the late 80s, the Ford Probe was destined to be the next Mustang. When fans found out they flooded Ford with letters. The Mustang remained a rear wheel drive car because customers insisted it.

I don't get Kre-O. When I was little, it was known as BTR and of very high quality, near that of Lego. Kreo came out during the last Transformers movie, and was of as nearly as bad quality as Best-Lock
