What's the most iconic part of the original 1993 film Jurassic Park?The giant pile of dinosaur poo?Naw, it's Jeff Goldblum stripping down and flaunting his chest, a look that's been memed and mocked and celebrated and even made into figurines, T-shirts and throw pillows.And now it's preserved forever in Lego form.On Tuesday, the official Twitter account for Lego Group released a video of the new Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage set, which will be available in stores later this summer.The tweet says it'll be available in LEGO stores and online June 19, but the online link says it will be available July 1.
Jurassic World has been a popular range for Lego for some time, but up until now all of its included dinosaurs have been nothing but plastic toys.The sets have been great, but they've been more aimed at younger builders; more playsets than the kinds of things we grown-ups like to build and put on display.That's all about to change with the latest Jurassic World set revealed: Lego Jurassic Park T.Rex Rampage is a 3,120 piece model including a buildable 69cm long Tyrannosaurus Rex and the iconic Jurassic Park gates that are nearly half a metre high.Tl;dr: this set looks freaking awesome.It comes with six minifigures: Dr. Ian Malcolm, Dr. Ellie Sattler, Dr. Alan Grant, John, Hammond, Ray Arnold and Dennis Nedry.The latter three are new minifigs for 2019, too.
"Jurassic Park" has served up its fair share of memorable moments -- whether it's a T. rex attacking a Jeep full of tourists or velociraptors hunting down kids in the visitor center's kitchen.To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the franchise's original movie, toymaker Funko announced late last week that the company is releasing a "Jurassic Park" collection in February to celebrate characters from the popular sci-fi film series.The new toys include paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant, Jurassic Park CEO John Hammond and embryo-smuggler Dennis Nedry.Dr. Ian Malcolm -- a chaos-theory mathematician played by Jeff Goldblum -- gets not one, but two toys.One is an upright Malcolm in all-black clothes and sunglasses.The other, available only at Target, is a bloodied Malcolm, striking a sexy pose as he lies on his side with his shirt open.
VMware's also trying to stop Dennis Nedry in vSphere 6.5, but both trail the NSA and XenVirtual machine security is suddenly a hot spot: VMware's building a new product for it and has added new bits to vSphere 6.5 to enhance it.Let's do Redmond first because its new Shielded VMs are one of the headline items in Windows Server and Hyper-V 2016.As explained to The Register by Microsoft program manager Dean Wells, Redmond reckons one of the things that holds back virtualisation is that virtual machines aren't yet as verifiably secure as their bare metal brethren.Or to put it in terms that Jurassic Park's Dennis Nedry would understand: without the magic word, you'll be locked out.Wells feels the lack of TPM for virtual machines means some organisations keep sensitive workloads on bare metal because they fear rogue admins can take a VM and run it elsewhere.
