The new LEGO Jurassic World sets were released just a few days ago, and they are already gathering lots of enthusiastic feedback from the LEGO fan community. This is the second time LEGO worked with the Jurassic World license. Back in 2015, LEGO released seven LEGO Jurassic World sets, with a mainly white and blue color-scheme, and a good selection of dinos. While the sets were popular with kids because of the play-features and dinos, for older builders the sets appeared too toy-ish and simplistic. This time around, LEGO decided to go much deeper and wider with their Jurassic World collection; including eight regular LEGO Jurassic World sets (plus a small polybag), three sets under the LEGO Juniors line for younger kids, two sets under LEGO DUPLO for the youngest LEGO fans, and one set under LEGO BrickHeadz. That’s a lot of sets, so let’s take a closer look. 🙂
Under the regular LEGO Jurassic World line we get the the #75926 LEGO Jurassic World Pteranodon Chase, the #75927 LEGO Jurassic World Stygimoloch Breakout, the #75928 LEGO Jurassic World Blue’s Helicopter Pursuit, the #75929 LEGO Jurassic World Carnotaurus Gyrosphere Escape (see below), the #75930 LEGO Jurassic World Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate, the #75931 LEGO Jurassic World Dilophosaurus Outpost Attack, the #75932 LEGO Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase, and the #75933 LEGO Jurassic World T. Rex Transport.
One thing you will notice right away about these sets is that they have a less toy-ish look compared to the previous releases. The darker color-scheme of grays, dark-blue, and black goes really well together, and make the sets look more serious and substantial. And while the dinos looks excellent in the the 2015 sets, here they are upgraded with even more details. They are truly beautiful with detailed moulding, printing, and nicely combined colors.
All of the sets come with one large dino, and the #75930 LEGO Jurassic World Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate comes with two large dinos. The large dinos are all unique, except for Blue, who appears in two sets. In addition, the #75930 LEGO Jurassic World Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate, the #75931 LEGO Jurassic World Dilophosaurus Outpost Attack (see below), and #75933 LEGO Jurassic World T. Rex Transport comes with an adorable baby dino as well.
Each of the sets also include at least one vehicle, and/or some kind of terrain, building, or enclosure for the dinos and minifigs to interact with. The larger the set, the more you will get of course, but even the smaller sets have lots of play-value. For example, the #75928 LEGO Jurassic World Blue’s Helicopter Pursuit (see below) includes a vehicle, a helicopter, a cage the helicopter can carry, Blue, and three minifigures, all for $39.99.
One of the most interesting sets in the new LEGO Jurassic World line is the#75930 LEGO Jurassic World Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate with a substantially large building. While most of what you see here is a facade with not much depth to the structure, there are some options for different configurations by removing and reattaching sections in different ways. Take a look at the video-review further down below to see all the play-features, minifigs, and dinos in this set.
While most of the new LEGO Jurassic World sets are related to the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom film, the #75932 LEGO Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase pays homage to the 25th anniversary of the original Jurassic Park blockbuster film. The set features a computer room with lab and kitchen area, and includes Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, Lex Murphy and Tim Murphy, plus a Velociraptor. A nice set to add to your collection if you are a fan of the original movie.
In the LEGO Juniors line we get three sets related to Jurassic World; the #10756 LEGO Jurassic World Pteranodon Escape, the #10757 LEGO Jurassic World Raptor Rescue Truck, and the #10758 LEGO Jurassic World T.Rex Breakout. These set are meant for younger kids (ages 4-7) with simpler building techniques, but they still include regular minifigures and very nice dinos. Note that although the moulds of the dinos are the same as in the more advanced sets, their coloration is different. So, if you want a good variety of dinos, these are a great addition. Also note that while the more advanced sets use stickers for most of the decorations, here all the decorated pieces are printed. You can find all three sets under the LEGO Jurassic World section of the Online LEGO Shop.
There are dinos for the youngest kids too (ages 2-5). The #10879 LEGO DUPLO Gentle Giants Petting Zoo includes a little scenery with a Gray Mitchell DUPLO figure, plus 2 baby dinosaurs; a Triceratops and a Diplodocus. The #10880 LEGO DUPLO T. Rex Tower includes Owen Grady DUPLO figure, his car, a lookout tower, plus a large T. Rex. You can find both sets under the LEGO Jurassic World section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The last set related to Jurassic World is the #41614 LEGO BrickHeadz Owen & Blue construction characters in the same brick-built style as the other LEGO BrickHeadz figures. Owen comes with a tranquilizer gun, and velociraptor Blue got some seriously ferocious white teeth. The decorations on these figures are printed, and they are quite adorable. The set is available under the LEGO Jurassic World section of the Online LEGO Shop.
In the video-player below, I have included reviews of the Jurassic World sets, so you can see them in more detail. You can use the drop-down menu in the upper left corner to select the review you would like to watch, or you may just let them play one after the other.
As you can see, this is a very large selection of Jurassic World sets. Most LEGO fans will be after collecting all the adult and baby dinos, but the sets themselves are great with excellent play-features and very useful parts and colors. It’s also nice that instead of trying to make all the sets appeal to all age-groups and thus make them too toy-ish, this time around LEGO split the collection for different ages. You can check out the full selection at the LEGO Jurassic World section of the Online LEGO Shop.
