I was surfing the web casually and decided to take a look at the new LEGO play sets for Jurassic World. They all look really cool, I can't wait to get my hands on some of them (especially the one we're getting ready to talk about). I was looking at the T-Rex Tracker set when an epiphany hit me square in the face.
I looked at it, and looked at it, and looked at it some more. Now, I know LEGO sets don't always follow their patron movie step by step story wise. But if they decided to do some plot-accurate stuff with these sets, we might be in for a treat.
WARNING: HUGE TYRANNOSAURUS SIZED POTENTIAL SPOILERS LIE BEYOND THE BORDER KNOWN AS THIS SUB-HEADING.
Still here? One last warning...OKAY! We all know now that the only Tyrannosaur on Isla Nublar is the original T-Rex from Jurassic Park. I don't know about you peeps, but I'm slightly more enthused to see her return than to see the arrival of the Indominus Rex.
I'll admit it, she's pretty(umm, pretty ugly), but the Tyrannosaurus Rex is the original beauty. Anyway, the main story behind the Indominus Rex(or the film in general) is that the prehistoric hybrid breaks out of it's enclosure and terrorizes the park. Indominus "asserts it's dominance" over the park. The dinosaur that's dominated the throne of Isla Nublar for 22 years is Rexy herself. And if history has shown us anything, most mutinies don't go down without a fight. Many(including myself) suspect that the Tyrannosaurus will challenge the Indominus Rex to a fight to the death for the throne of Jurassic World. So what does this LEGO set have to do with it?
Scroll up and view the set image once more. Did you do what I asked? Stellar! Now if you'll notice the cage on the rear of this giant vehicle...
The Tyrannosaur fits in the cage! Reminds of The Lost World: Jurassic Park(I almost wish it didn't). So why are they putting it in the cage? Well, the LEGO website says that the T-Rex "broke loose". However, they(just like actors) are sworn to secrecy to keep major plot points from the audience until the film's release. They could be hiding what I believe to be true...
The final plan of Owen Grady and Co. is to unleash the Tyrannosaurus Rex!!
Well...sorta. It may be Vic Hoskins'( Vincent D'Onofrio) plan given that he's the character in the set. However, this is also LEGO. Many times a character will be included just so you can get the character(I doubt Zach[Nick Robinson] will be near the Indominus Rex paddock at the time it breaks out. In fact, the TV spot shows him and Gray[Ty Simpkins] getting attacked by Whitey whilst in the Gyrosphere in the huge clearing). So perhaps it's Owen's(Chris Pratt) idea to use nature against nature, just like with the Raptor Squad. Now remember in the most recent trailer how one of the Raptors attacks an ACU(that's also in a set, which further fuels my beliefs that these sets are for the majority film-accurate)? Something tells me that Owen either has to take down some ACU who want to get rid of him(doubtable), or that the Indominus Rex takes control of them like it does to the Pterosaurs. Which means maybe the Raptors fail in even attempting to kill the I-Rex. So, Owen thinks that they need a little more...bulk. A little more firepower. Meaning...
The battle between the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Indominus Rex is practically inevitable!
I really hope this happens. The Queen of Isla Nublar has an new challenger approaching! She better end out on top, though...I'd hate to see another neck-snapped-by-a-Spinosaurus incident. I'd love for this film's finale to be similar to the first film's, ending with the corpse of the Indominus Rex at the Tyrannosaur's feet, and Rexy roaring in triumph.
