A complaint about the recently released #75936 LEGO Jurassic Park: T. Rex Rampage set has been that it does not include any of the iconic Jurassic Park vehicles. LEGO designer Mark Stafford explained that this would have required a separate license from the car manufacturer, so LEGO decided against it. However, this does not have to deter LEGO fans from making their own Jurassic Park vehicles.
In fact, LEGO fan Miro Dudas (well known for his custom LEGO Winter Village sets and brick built LEGO Star Wars characters) did just that, and designed two minifig-scale LEGO Jurassic Park vehicles; the Jurassic Park tour vehicle, and the Jurassic Park staff Jeep. Miro is providing free, high-quality instructions and parts-lists that can be downloaded from Rebrickadble.com. Details below.
➡ LEGO JURASSIC PARK TOUR VEHICLE: Build minifigure scale iconic Jurassic Park vehicles as seen in the original Jurassic Park blockbuster movie! The Park Tour vehicle (Ford Explorer) comes with distinctive yellow, green, and deep red coloration. Includes functional front doors, removable sky roof, and seating for three minifigures. 307 pieces. Free parts list and instructions available through Rebrickable webpage: TOUR VEHICLE INSTRUCTIONS
➡ LEGO JURASSIC PARK STAFF JEEP: Build a classic Jurassic Park staff Jeep Wrangler from the 1993 cinematic blockbuster hit Jurassic Park! The vehicle is a modified version of the car found in the 2015 Jurassic World video game, with some changes like opening doors and more accurate red striping on the sides, to name a few. The vehicle seats two minifigures; one in front and one in back. 220 pieces. Free parts list and instructions available through Rebrickable webpage: STAFF JEEP INSTRUCTIONS

Now, this is nice. This is why I love the Lego community!
Thanks for sharing this. They are very accurate. I love the bubble roof!
Thank you, Miro, this is really appreciated.
Just a FYI. Those of you who build the jeeps will also need to move the mud tracks in front of the gate. They are currently set too wide. This shouldn’t be too hard to do.
Lego should have made the Vehicles when they first started the Jurassic Park theme. But, I guess their focus was more on the dinosaurs which makes sense. Even so, one of the vehicles should have been made in one of the sets. It’s just left up to us ( the fans) to do it ourselves .
They literally state in the article they couldn’t get the auto manufacturers on board in the time frame because of licensing of the vehicles…
The gate actually looks fairly close to minifig scale compared to images from the movie. The only thing that’s off is the mud tracks. So, if you move the mud tracks, then these vehicles could work very well. I wish Miro included a picture with the gate. It would make it more clear.
I saw a picture that the gate is indeed almost perfectly scaled for minifigs: https://www.reddit.com/r/lego/comments/c5bj4i/i_did_the_math_for_the_jurassic_park_gate/
The question is whether Miro’s cars match the Stranger Things car, which is what the OP used for scaling.
Here is another Ford Explorer with video instructions: https://youtu.be/ro_Pgc-fDvc
Thank you all for your nice comments. I am glad to share my vehicle builds, as I am a big fan of Jurassic Park. I will post pictures of the vehicles with the set’s gate and more soon. I just received the Jurassic Park : T-Rex Rampage Set 75936 yesterday and I am starting the build today. You can follow me on Instagram, under my website’s name HumbleBricks.
Enjoy building the vehicles and thank you TheBrickBlogger for spreading the word out to the community.
Miro, nice to have you stop by! Always appreciate your models. 🙂
For those that read, on Rebrickable, the instructions for the Staff Jeeps are no longer free. They cost $4.00 at this time.
