The LEGO Jurassic Park project is not going to be made after failing the Review stage at LEGO CuuSoo.

Hasbro's KRE-O range has the contruction toy license for Jurassic Park after a deal concerning Jurassic Park 4 and this existing partnership is the reason for the project not getting the green light.

LEGO CuuSoo said "The bad news is, we've looked into the possibility of producing a set based on 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."

In further feedback to the project, LEGO effectively put the kibosh on future Jurassic Park submissions by stating "we've archived this project now since we know it isn't feasible, and we'll also archive Jurassic Park-based projects as they achieve 1,000 supporters."

Read LEGO CuuSoo's full response to the Jurassic Park project below:

"First and foremost, congratulations on the well over 5,000 supporters for this project on LEGO CuuSoo! You've created a beautiful 3D rendering of a Jurassic Park scene that could make a great LEGO set and have really rallied a community of fans behind it.

"The bad news is, we've looked into the possibility of producing a set based on 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, and we'll also archive Jurassic Park-based projects as they achieve 1,000 supporters. 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."
