The Research Institute is the most recent Lego ideas set that passed to production and will hit stores next August. It contains around two hundred pieces and features three nice and distinct scientific areas: a chemical lab, a small astronomy room and finally a paleontologist with a big dinosaur which will be, perhaps, the most popular part of this set.
Having a quick look at the three, the small lab is built upon a small plate and basically brings a workbench with plenty of flasks with different colors, a couple of pipettes and a small bottle support on the edge. Definitely it looks a very nice reproduction of a small lab.
The astronomer is also quite simple, featuring only a small black board and a telescope, however this masterpiece is definitely one of the most perfect parts of the set. Finally the Big T-Rex needs no presentation, it is also pretty nice detailed with many different kinds of bones and brings with it a small brown microscope.
The mini-figures are three, a paleontologist a chemist, and an astronomer, each one for its own scientific field. The complete review of this set, made by its creator, can be read in her blog right here. Enjoy the pics!
