Looks like this one includes the gastralia, making it "beefier" than the previous ones.

So the rest of the series includes a Sakura (?) tree, The Thinker, a box with food, a train, a Shakkoudoga, a panda and a giant school girl...any theme to that?
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

I'll give this one a pass, though I like the idea of this set. I just prefer fully prehistoric themed sets.

I thought it was a "Culture of Japan" themed set but the Thinker statue and the T-rex dont seem to fit, and pandas are more associated with China. What a random set of figures.

IIRC The Tyrannosaurus is a particular specimen specifically, so it could represent a specific event or exhibition.

This set represents the district in Tokyo called Ueno, they have a huge park in the district called the Ueno Imperial Park.
They have various different museums, a few of which are art museums and natural history museums, which explains the Thinker statue and the Tyrannosaurus skeleton.
They also have a zoo there, which houses a few pandas, therefore explaining the panda figure.
