LEGO Ideas is calling on fans to get prehistoric

If you’re in the mood to return to the time of T. rexes, Triceratops and Pterodactyls, the LEGO Ideas team has just the activity for you.

While the LEGO Group is content to come up with brand new moulded dinosaurs for its Jurassic World theme, you can’t always rely on the element design team to engineer new attractions for your LEGO Isla Nublar. To that end, the Ideas team’s latest activity encourages you to build your own dinos and upload them to the crowdsourcing platform.

You don’t need to restrict yourself to real prehistoric beasts, either: just as the folks behind Jurassic World did with the Indominous rex, you’re welcome to come up with some seriously weird and wacky dinos in your pursuit of the greatest LEGO-saurus to roam the brick-built Earth.

As always, there’s no particular prize on offer for taking part in this week’s activity (beyond your own sense of achievement). If it’s LEGO loot you’re after, check out the platform’s two current contests, which are also offering the chance to see your build either displayed at the LEGO House or turned into a future GWP.

You’ve got until Tuesday, April 27 at 9am UK time to get your dino entries in. You can check out all the submissions so far over on the Ideas activity page, where we’re sure you’ll see plenty of life, uh, finding a way.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
