I Built the LEGO Dinosaur Fossils Set

100% Worth the $60

Ideas is an area for LEGO where users build their own creations, submit the idea, and should they collect enough community votes, present their idea to the people who decide what gets built and what gets you a pat on the head.

In the case of Dinosaur Fossils, someone figured out how to take my favorite part of a trip to New York City and make it into toys that my toddler is jealous of as he watches from below the assembly table.

Here's what I look like probably:

Dinosaur Fossils is a three-book set and features 1:32 scale toy models of Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops and Pteranodon skeletons, each with display stands so it looks a lot like my trip to American Museum of Natural History aka Dinosaur Museum.

First up: Pteranodon. 

Then, Triceratops with three stages:

And finally, Tyrannosaurus Rex - also a three-piecer.

Look at that head!

Hard to choose which is coolest for sure, but this is going to look so awesome on my LEGO shelf dedicated to mostly space stuff.
