The LEGO Jurassic World sets became available at the beginning of this month, so let’s take a closer look at these interesting new sets. The most exciting feature of the LEGO Jurassic World line is of course the dinos, however there are also some other aspects that are worth to take a look at. Below you will find details on each of the LEGO Jurassic Word sets as well as full video-reviews. The Jurassic World film won’t be out until mid-June, but LEGO fans can already play out all the action! 🙂

LEGO Jurassic World

#75915 LEGO JURASSIC WORLD PTERANODON CAPTURE: This is the smallest of the LEGO Jurassic World sets with some interesting features on the helicopter. Fire the net shooter to take down the pteranodon! Emergency! A pteranodon has grabbed an ACU trooper and is flying away with him gripped in its claws. Jump into the cockpit of the cool Jurassic One helicopter with Simon Masrani, soar into the sky and speed to the rescue. When you have the pteranodon in your sights, open the side door to hang out on the platform and fire the net shooter to capture the dinosaur before it can escape. Includes 2 minifigures: Simon Masrani and an ACU trooper with a weapon. 174 pieces. Price: $19.99 – BUY HERE

#75915 LEGO Jurassic World

#75916 LEGO JURASSIC WORLD DILOPHOSAURUS: At least to me, this is one of the most interesting sets in the series because of that gyrosphere. As you can see it in the video-review below, the seat stays upright while you move the gyrosphere. I hope LEGO is going to use this mechanism in future sets as well. The dino is also pretty awesome with some really nice print. Save Gray from the dilophosaurus with the Jurassic World 4×4! Danger! Gray has got lost in the park and is rolling around in a gyrosphere being chased by a dilophosaurus. Join the ACU trooper as he drives to the rescue in the classic Jurassic World 4×4. Use the binoculars to seek out the ferocious dinosaur and call for back-up on the walkie-talkie. Evade its snapping jaws and use the winch to grab its legs. Take down that dino before it can jump on the back of the 4×4 and activate the explode function! Includes 2 minifigures with a weapon and assorted accessories: Gray and an ACU trooper. 248 pieces. Price: $29.99 – BUY HERE

#75916 LEGO Jurassic World

#75917 LEGO JURASSIC WORLD RAPTOR RAMPAGE: This is one of my favorite sets in the series because of all the action, the play-features and two dinos! As far as play-value, I think this is one of the best. Fend off raptor attacks on the mobile vet unit! Watch out! The mobile vet unit is under attack from Blue and Charlie, two marauding raptors. Drive the powerful vehicle at top speed to evade their charges. Join Owen on the motorbike to distract the dinosaurs and lure them away with the flare. Fire the rotating rooftop shooter to repel the raptors and put them to sleep with the ACU trooper’s tranquilizer gun. Includes 3 minifigures with a weapon and assorted accessories: an ACU trooper, Owen and Claire. 324 pieces. Price: $49.99 – BUY HERE

#75917 LEGO Jurassic World

#75918 LEGO JURASSIC WORLD T. REX TRACKER: This set comes with the largest dino in the series, which definitely shows in the very steep price. I think there are other sets in the line that are much more versatile and fun with a better price, but if you want the have the biggest, baddest dino, you might still consider it. Check out the play-features in the video-review below. Take down the T. rex with the trap shooter! The chase is on! A mighty T. rex has broken loose and it must be captured before it harms anyone. Team up with the ACU troopers in the T. rex Tracker to pursue the ferocious creature. Drive the motorcycle to distract the T. rex, swerving clear of its powerful jaws. Meanwhile, lay out the dino cage as a trap and prepare to fire the mobile research module’s harpoon-style trap shooter. You’ve only got one shot to take down the beast, so make it count! Includes 3 minifigures with assorted weapons and accessories: an ACU trooper, Hoskins and a vet. 520 pieces. Price: $69.99 – BUY HERE

#75918 LEGO Jurassic World

#75919 LEGO JURASSIC WORLD INDOMINUS REX BREAKOUT: This is the largest set in the series and includes some of the best features this theme has to offer. There is the whole structure in itself, which looks great, and you also get a small helicopter, another gyrosphere, and four minifigs. I wish it would come with another dino though. Direct the Indominus rex back to the impound! Red alert – the huge Indominus rex has broken out of the impound! Zach is inside the gyrosphere launched from the pen wall and now he’s under attack. Direct the hunt for the rampaging beast from the impound’s research tower. Set off in hot pursuit in the helicopter, evading the dinosaur’s snapping jaws and swiping claws. You must get that dangerous dino safely back in the pen before it causes serious damage. Includes 4 minifigures with assorted weapons and accessories: Zach, an ACU trooper, Dr Wu and a vet. 1156 pieces. Price: $129.99 – BUY HERE

#75919 LEGO Jurassic World

#75920 LEGO JURASSIC WORLD RAPTOR ESCAPE: This is my second favorite set in the series because of the two dinos and plenty of play-features. Uh-oh – there’s double dino trouble in Jurassic World! One of the raptors has escaped its pen and is running loose. Jump into the high-speed offroader and set off in hot pursuit. Fire the flick shooter and use Barry’s tranquilizer gun to tame the menacing marauder. Meanwhile, the other raptor has triggered the trap function to bring the vet toppling down into its pen. Rush back to save him before the raptor can grab him in its snapping jaws. Includes 2 minifigures with assorted weapons: Barry and a vet. 394 pieces. Price: $39.99 – BUY HERE

#75920 LEGO Jurassic World

In the video-player below you can watch the review of all of the LEGO Jurassic World sets by JANGBRiCKS and the BrickShow. I put them in order of set-numbers, but if you only want to watch a specific review, you can use the drop-down menu in the upper left corner of the video-player.

As you can see, the LEGO Jurassic World theme captures the action of the film really well. And the dinos are awesome looking. I don’t particularly like the blue and white color-scheme, but if that’s how they look like in the movie, there is not much LEGO can do about that. One issue with these sets is the higher than normal price due to the special moulds for the dinos. So if you are considering getting these sets you may have to pay more attention which sets gives you the best features, elements, minifigs and dinos for your money. Personally I like the #75917 LEGO Jurassic World Raptor Rampage and the #75920 LEGO Jurassic World Raptor Escape. Those two sets alone give you four dinos and plenty of play-value. And I also like the #75916 LEGO Jurassic World Dilophosaurus Ambush because of the gyrosphere and the very unique dino. But if you are after the largest dinos, you might want to look at the two biggest sets. All of the LEGO Jurassic World sets are now available both on Amazon.com (follow the link) and at the Online LEGO Shop.

These sets give me memories of the Lego Studios Jurrasic Park theme. Cool sets, I may just get one or two sets of this theme.

And by the way, was the Dino theme based on Jurrassic Park (and Lego couldn’t make the sets then) cause they are quite similar.

Raptor Escape looks similar to Lego’s Dino Defense, that’s all I’m saying. But that doesn’t matter, because Lego needs inspiration from something. Lego has there reasons for Lego Dino (which I never got because I had a feeling Lego would bring the Jurrassic sets back).

I ordered the dilophosaurus set already, and may be ordering more. I have the dino sets from years ago, and as said before, they will blend together well.

For MOCs, this line probably provides the most diverse skin-tone selection of minifigures in the fewest amount of sets than I think we’ve seen from LEGO (outside of the Friends line I suppose). And the faces are not too specialized either. I can see a lot of these heads and hands being repurposed into custom builds.

That’s a really good point I haven’t considered. Thanks for sharing.

does anybody know if there will be a second wave? after seeing the new trailer for the lego game I really hope that they bring out a new mosasaurus and spino

Not sure. I think it really depends on the success (or lack) of the movie. As this is a licensed theme they are strongly tied together.

Nice. But these sets spoiled the movie for me. For example it spoiled how the indominus Rex looked like. But whatever I’m gonna get some sets.

That’s a good point about the spoilers. I’m not sure how they decide when to release sets related to a movie, but I do know they have a very strict agreement with the movie maker. Sometimes this means we get the sets when the movie gets released, and sometimes earlier. Releasing the sets early could be good for the film because it can build up excitement and conversations/speculations. But the downside is that there are going to be spoilers too.
