Check Out These Winning Brick-Built Hybrid Dinosaurs From LEGO Ideas

Brick-Built Hybrid Dinosaurs

Remember last June when the LEGO Ideas platform launched a contest to create the most unique, custom LEGO brick-built hybrid dinosaurs? Well, it turns out that these builds have finely gone out of their shells and we now have three winning entries that show what happens when LEGO is unintentionally (?) mixed with dino DNA. There are three winners from this recent LEGO Ideas contest, with one bringing home the bacon for the wackiest dino creation around. Let’s check these winners from the LEGO Ideas Unleash Your Own Genetically Modified Hybrid Dinosaur.

First off, we have two Runner-Ups: one that this seems to be the stuff of brick nightmares if you happen to stumble upon a real one, while the other is so cute and adorable, you might need to stop yourself from eating it.

Runner Ups

Tyrannosaurus Scorpio Tigris by Langemann Lego

Brick-Built Hybrid Dinosaurs

“Some kind of Monster,” Dr. Henry Wu said as he saw his new creation. He decided to mix up the DNA of the Tyrannosaurus Rex with some predators of our world, to get one of the most dangerous and scary creatures ever seen: The Tyrannosaurus Scorpio Tigris.

Some DNA of a Scorpion for armor, poison and useable claws.

Some DNA of a tiger for bigger fangs, better ears, and eyes.

856 parts.

Hopefully, his creation will not break out…

This wonder of science came after a company birthday party gone wrong. Some Dino DNA mixed with the cake and the Tricaketops was born! Half Triceratops, half Cake. It’s known for its durable frosting skin, candle horns, cupcake feet, and delicious taste!

Grand Prize

Tyrannocow (T-cow) by yop1172

Brick-Built Hybrid Dinosaurs

It seems that someone did not follow the rules of the laboratory, and some milk remains fell on the samples! This dinosaur is a mixture between a T-rex and an ordinary cow, it is not dangerous, but it can’t be milked by anyone, and protects cows and farm animals that naturally seek its habitat.
Ironically I used a mini cleaver piece (98369) to make the ears, and the minifig hairpiece 25379 to make the hooves.
Does anyone want some milk? 
These brick-built hybrid dinosaurs winners got to bring home an impressive array of 2019 LEGO Jurassic World sets (for the Grand Prize winner), plus the gargantuan Jurassic Park T.rex Rampage (75936) set. All of these sets are currently available at LEGO Shop@Home in case you want to take a look.
I personally want to build that Tyrannocow and Tricaketops myself. Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.
Congratulations to all the winners!
