Jungle Explorer

created by parkCollect on 2013.08.05

Main Section
Do you remember how it felt to be a child in 1993 when 'Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth'? Well here's your chance to relive that exciting prehistoric time with LEGO's JUNGLE EXPLORER.

The Jurassic Park 'Jungle Explorer' vehicle based on the early 1990s Ford Explorer, was originally designed by prolific concept artist John Bell, who was also responsible for designing the Hoverboard from Back to the Future part II. It represented the dream car of the 1990s - electric, automated, and stylish!

The vehicle boasts an extended body with a sleek bubble dome roof, perfect for Tyrannosaurs to inspect! The interior will be modelled in tan leather brown, complete with interactive CD-ROM screen displaying a map of the island.

As a display feature, this vehicle comes with a road base, with a track that the vehicle secures to, just like the electrical track in the film!

This set will come with two exclusive mini figures - Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler. Alan would have his distinctive cream fedora and Ellie her blue vest with salmon shirt tied round her waist.

The boot opens up to reveal a storage area that contains:
- A pair of LEGO Night vision goggles (that fit onto Alan or Ellie)
- 2 X Flares for distracting any would-be dinosaurs!
- Alan Grant's book - featuring his LEGO mini figure face pictured on the cover
- LEGO Dino Droppings - to re-enact that famous Triceratops scene

I believe this design will succeed because it represents the level of thrilling technology we see in the film - but with a stunning aesthetic. Hopefully with an ounce of humor thrown in to boot (eh! get it?) this set should be appealing for all fans far and wide!

Decision on Our Ability to Produce this Project

2013.09.25

First and foremost, thank you for creating this project on LEGO® CUUSOO!

We've looked into the possibility of producing a set based on this licensed property (Jurassic Park), and since another company has the construction toy license for this IP, we can’t pursue this further as a potential LEGO set. We're sorry to be the bearers of this disappointing news.

With any IP on LEGO CUUSOO is that there is the potential of a license conflict, either with an existing license or with a competitive licensor. Still, we think it’s better to be open and allow for possibilities, knowing there will be "no" answers along the way, than shut out the potential of IP-based products altogether. After all, just because this project isn’t a possibility doesn’t mean all IP projects wouldn’t be. 

We've archived this project now since we know it isn't feasible. Your project will remain visible on LEGO CUUSOO, but in a status where it can no longer be supported or commented on. This way fans can still admire your creation.

Opening ourselves to new product suggestions invites popular ideas that don't always work. We are grateful for the spirit behind projects like this Jurassic Park project and for the opportunity to be challenged. It keeps us sharp and looking toward the future of the LEGO brick. We hope to see more projects from you soon.

The LEGO CUUSOO Team


Note: If your idea is selected, the LEGO Group will make the final decision on how your proposed product should be produced, the final design, applicable licenses, production run size, sales channels, etc. Please understand that our comments here do not have an effect on the LEGO Review that will take place if the project reaches 10,000 supporters.
