Show of the Week: Lego Jurassic World and 5 Dinosaurs Who Will Wreck Up Your Theme Park

Lego Jurassic World is the latest hot property to get the Lego treatment, and though it coincides with the launch of the Jurassic World film, it actually adapts all four Jurassic Something movies for your co-op action-adventuring pleasure. Show of the Week inspects the goods and ponders cheaper alternatives to bespoke designer dinos.

Lego Jurassic World being based on all four Jurassic Park movies means you can revisit you favourite lines, scenes and characters from the films. There are over 100 playable characters to unlock, each with appropriate special powers (Lex's super-scream, Dr Sattler's dino poop-rummaging ability) as well as gizmos from the new film, such as that human hamster ball.

And when you're sick of being a tiny warm-blooded mammal, aren't we all, you can go on a rampage as one of 20 dinosaurs or cook up something original in the dino-making laboratory. As we understand it, this is the plot of the new film, in which scientists whip up a smarter, deadlier dinosaur because they needed all their park visitors mauled and eaten. Probably an insurance scam.

Anyway, the combination of Lego toys and classic Jurassic Park set pieces, complete with original voice samples, hits us hard in the nostalgia nodes. Now where do we get ourselves a shirtless Ian Malcolm minifig?
