We first reported on this in one of our Off The Shelf segments. Now we’re disappointed, but not surprised, to hear that has closed down this LEGO CUUSOO Jurassic Park Proposal. It seems that another company owns the building block license to Jurassic Park. With Hasbro currently producing toys based on the Jurassic Park license, and their ownership of LEGO rival Kre-O, it’s safe to say that Hasbro is the one who owns that particular license. A bummer to be sure, as the set was beautifully designed.

We usually save LEGO CUUSOO stuff for our Off The Shelf feature. But, with this reaching the required 10,000 support votes, we figured we would share it properly. A proposal for a Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary – Road To Oz set went up on LEGO CUUSOO on July 15th. Yesterday the proposal achieved the necessary 10,000 support votes and will move onto the official review stage.
During the official review, LEGO will determine if the Road To Oz project is a viable set. they will determine if the can and want to acquire the license. If it receives the go ahead, we could see this officially released within a year.

Back in March, we relayed word that 20th Century Fox and LEGO were in talks to bring The Simpsons to the LEGO brand. Now, we can confirm that the long running series will indeed be joining forces with LEGO. A wide range of sets are planned. The Associated Press is reporting that the first sets are coming in 2014.
No official word on what the sets will consist of, which characters will be included or even an exact timeline for release. Sometime next year, LEGO Simpsons will launch and they will be available globally.
Back in December, we reported on news that the LEGO Back To The Future DeLorean was approved thanks to fan support via LEGO CUSOO. Now, thanks to Brick News and Brick Fantatics, we have a date and a (UK) price. The set is due to hit LEGO Stores and LEGO.com/Shop on July 18. It will sell for £34.99 in the UK, with no North American price yet revealed.
The set will vary from the original proposed design, featuring a different design on the hood and windshield. The set, though, will include both Marty McFly and Doc Brown! You will also be able to adjust your LEGO DeLorean to look like the vehicles seen from all three Back To the Future films.

Normally, we don’t post movie trailers on the front page at Toyark. We usually reserve those for our Toyark: Off The Shelf features. However, this one is pure LEGO joy. The team behind the film versions of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street are bring us The LEGO Movie.
The reason we’re front paging this is not only are they using LEGO minifig models with a full LEGO motif, but they are actually using many of the licensed LEGO toys such as Superman, Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Check out the trailer below and the poster after the jump.
