Meet Lego T. rex: Lego Jurassic World trailer is literally jaw-dropping
The new game lets you collect the building blocks of life -- both DNA and Lego -- to create, customise and play as different dinos from all four films.

Lego will find a way: hold into your butts and enjoy the first teaser for Lego Jurassic World, the forthcoming video game that will transfer the blockbuster movie series to your console in brick form.
The Lego game will recreate story lines and famous scenes from all four "Jurassic Park" dino-movies, including elements of forthcoming blockbuster " Jurassic World" and the three previous movies. The film series began with Steven Spielberg's original in 1993, marking a breakthrough in CGI effects combined with jaw-dropping animatronics. There were also two sequels.
You can play as dinosaurs including the fearsome T. rex, roaming the exotic islands from the movies, Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna, and battling with other sauropods. Along the way you collect precious amber, loaded with dino-DNA -- the building blocks of life -- to create and customise species.
TT Games, the software house behind all the Lego movie games, is developing the new title. You'll be able to play on Xbox One and Xbox 360, PlayStations 3 and 4, PS Vita, the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS, and Windows PC.
The Lego Jurassic World game is coming in June, when "Jurassic World" also stomps into theatres around the world.
Later in the year, the clunkily titled Lego Marvel's Avengers will also transfer a popular movie to your games console in Lego form, after "Avengers: Age of Ultron" hits cinemas in late April and early May.
