It’s been over 20 years since the old-school Alan Grant, the lovable Ellie Sattler, and the eccentric Ian Malcolm took the ill-fated test drive through dino land in Jurassic Park. With the upcoming release of Jurassic World, viewers are gearing up to re-enter the prehistoric environment, and one fan is paying tribute to the franchise's first film with a LEGO set that, with enough support, could come to fruition.

On LEGO Ideas, people can build LEGO projects and post them on the site. If a project gets over 10,000 votes, it will be officially reviewed by LEGO and could eventually make it onto store shelves.

Gaining momentum but still in need of more supporters is a LEGO set featuring the Jurassic Park gate, the Ford Explorer tour vehicle, the roaring Tyrannosaurus Rex, and the lovable trio of Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, and Ian Malcolm from 1993's Jurassic Park. To vote for the set, visit:

""What have they got in there? King Kong?" - Ian Malcolm

The Jurassic Park Gate is a famous trademark of the Jurassic Park Series. It first appeared in the first movie 1993 when the tour cars entered the Park and it is definitely one of the most iconic scenes in motion picture history. Now recreated in Lego form too - ohh, with some extra spice...

I got this idea right before 3D version of first film hit theaters on April 2013. I used a tremendous amount of time drafting models again and again, making sure that all propositions are right and each component looking as realistic as possible. I have always thought this as a display piece, like UCS -style eye catcher but there certainly is a lot play value here too.

So if you're a Jurassic Park fan please add your support to this project. Thanks!"
