Is the LEGO Jurassic Park Brachiosaurus the dinosaur we’ve been waiting for?
The reveal of 75960 Brachiosaurus Discovery has confirmed a massive and long-awaited dinosaur for LEGO Jurassic Park.
It’s finally time for a huge LEGO Brachiosaurus using specialised elements as 75960 Brachiosaurus Discovery includes the first-ever Brachiosaurus for the theme, 30 years after its debut in the franchise.
LEGO Jurassic Park models haven’t been common with the theme focusing more on Jurassic World instead. Considering the wealth of scenes to cover in the film, it’s not entirely surprising that we’re only receiving a LEGO Brachiosaurus in 2023 between eight models.
Despite the presence of a digital depiction of the dinosaur in the LEGO Jurassic World game, we’ve still waited eight years for the LEGO Brachiosaurus, from the start of the theme. Alternatively, it’s been over two decades since the debut of moulded LEGO dinosaur bricks.
Whichever you consider, it’s still been a long wait for the first LEGO Brachiosaurus but at 24cm high, it’s arguably big enough, or at least as big as a moulded Brachiosaurus can reasonably be.
Its options for posing include a rotating tail, a hinge on the neck, the head and its lower jaw. The legs don’t appear to have any gaps that would indicate movement, not like other LEGO dinosaurs. Even the four-legged triceratops had movement in each of its legs, though the sheer size of the Brachiosaurus may be the issue.
While there may be some differences compared to other moulded LEGO dinosaurs, 75960 Brachiosaurus Discovery launches on June 1 for £74.99 / $79.99 / €84.99, and you can find out more about the rest of the upcoming 30th-anniversary sets by clicking here.
