LEGO Jurassic World sets & Double VIP Points!

The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom film is now in theatres, which will likely give a big boost to the recently released LEGO Jurassic World collection. We have discussed the sets already in detail including video-reviews (see: LEGO Jurassic World Sets Overview), but I thought to mention them again in celebration of the release of the new film. There are eight regular LEGO Jurassic World sets, 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 to choose from for all age groups, and LEGO is even offering Double VIP Points on some of the sets (see details below). 🙂

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. Notice that while most of the new LEGO Jurassic World sets are related to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, 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.

In the LEGO Juniors line we get three Jurassic World sets; 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 awesome dinos. The dinos have the same shapes as in the more advanced sets, but their coloration is different. Also note that all the decorated pieces in the LEGO Juniors sets are printed instead of being stickered. 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.

Finally, there 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 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.

The LEGO Jurassic World sets have been very popular since their initial release in mid-April. LEGO fans love to collect the adult and baby dinos, and the sets themselves are well designed with nicely detailed minifigs, great play-features, useful parts, and nice colors. During the entire month of June, you can earn Double VIP Points on the #75928 LEGO Jurassic World Blue’s Helicopter Pursuit set and the #75929 LEGO Jurassic World Carnotaurus Gyrosphere Escape set. Both of them are available, along with all the other Jurassic World sets, at the LEGO Jurassic World section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? How do you like the new LEGO Jurassic World sets? Have you gotten some of them already? Which ones are your favorites? And have you seen the film yet? Or are you planning to? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

It’s okay. I don’t think it’s as good as the last movie, but it’s enjoyable. The lego sets are very good if you want to get some.

I’m doing some organizing this weekend. Too much Lego all over the place. It’s easier to build when you have everything organized and you can find the pieces you need. At this point I don’t even know what I have! LOL!

I’m doing some cleaning and organizing too. It’s too hot out midday. Will go out tonight, maybe even see the movie. Not sure yet..

Dag, I hate cleaning. What you are getting rid off, owns you.

I guess it still needs to be done, though. It just feels ungrateful…

Movies are good, though, but I have a bunch of old VHS cassettes to go through first…

Cleaning and organizing make me feel good. Like the place feels fresher and my mind feels fresher too. It doesn’t have to be like throwing stuff in the garbage. I organize things into piles and donate them to family, friends, charities, neighbors, etc. It makes me feel good that something that I haven’t been using gets some use again.

People keep telling me that, but it doesn’t work for me. Cleaning mostly leaves me drained and empty. It feels like I’m never getting anywhere. Even if I’m becoming more orderly, it still looks like a horrible mess.

There’s a freeshop at the University willing to accept some of my old junk, at least…

That’s an interesting way to look at cleaning that I never considered. For me it always feels refreshing, even invigorating. It’s always fun to find old things I completely forgot I even had. 😀

LOL! Looks like everyone is cleaning and organizing today? Speaking of which, any update on the lego and ikea collaboration? Or is it too soon to know what they are planning?

Reply

Håkan June 24, 2018 at 5:00 PM

Way too soon, I’d guess…

I see that you guys are all doing cleaning?! Now I’m feeling guilty for not for not doing much today. Have been working with Habitat for Humanity on Saturdays in the past couple of months, and I always feel beet up afterwards. 😀

As far as the Ikea + LEGO collaboration, no update yet. I’m guessing we might know more by the end of the year.

I’ve never heard of the organization before. Interesting.

Yeah, they are great. I have heard a lot of good things about them, so I finally found the time to volunteer, and now I’m looking forward to every Saturday. The house I have been volunteering at was already half way built when I started, so I have been working on the inside mostly; installing doors and cabinets, tiling, installing flooring and baseboards, installing lights, mirrors, other fixtures, painting, caulking, etc. I also learned how to use various power tools including tile cutter, different type of saws, nail gun, etc.

The people are super friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Some of the people have been volunteering with the organization for decades so they know everything about building a house. Others are brand new like me. There is every age group from college students (kids have to be minimum 16 to be at the construction site), to retired people. The more experienced volunteers are really good at engaging and teaching newcomers, and I was surprised how hard everyone was working. There is no idle talking, or selfie-taking, or other timewasters. Everyone is working hard on their assigned task. We start early morning, break for lunch (which is donated by different local organizations), than go back to work until mid-afternoon.

In my area, they have several groups of volunteers working on different houses at the same time. I’m in a group which is all women. The only paid person in the supervisor. She supervises several building sites at the same time, and helps with the most difficult tasks. Everyone else is a volunteer. It takes about 8-9 months to build a house using volunteers. The only thing that’s done by outside companies is pouring the concrete foundation and installing electrics. Once the house is built, it gets a full inspection to make sure everything is up to code.

I was interested to volunteer so I learn how to fix things around our house. There has been already several weekends when I came home and fixed something in our house with the skill I just learned. The house I have been volunteering at is pretty much finished now, but I want to work on the next house from the very beginning to learn more skills. (Because it’s so hot in our area work is paused for the summer and it will restart in the fall.)

I found building a house very fun. It’s like building with big LEGO pieces! I’m not new to construction sites as my dad is an architect, but even though I helped with some projects I never got formal training. I also like the other volunteers. They really are nice and hardworking people. If you are interested, and have a Habitat project near you, I recommend checking it out. 🙂

I’d need a new house, though, I have too much stuff already. (Although building in Stockholm is highly regulated by the government, anyway.)

Thanks for sharing that. I have been thinking about volunteering. Read a lot of good things about Habitat. Do you have to commit to a specific number of weekends and hours? Or can you just come and go when you have time?

Each location is independently run and organized, so there are going to be some discrepancies. In addition, I’m volunteering with the women-only chapter of our local Habitat, and I was told they do run some things differently than the main organization. So you really have to check with your local chapter to see what their rules are. But what I have heard is that in general they are very friendly and accommodating to newcomers and occasional volunteers. I have been volunteering every Saturday for about two months now, so all I can share is what I learned so far.

You will sign a waiver the first time you volunteer. After that, you can plug in at any time for as long or as little as you want. My group is very active on Facebook, and they also send out a newsletter every Sunday to talk about the progress we made, any challenges that came up, what we are going to be working on the next weekend, etc. They ask that you let them know by Wednesday if you are planning to come, so they get a sense of how many people they can engage and how much food they need to request for lunch. Regulars usually follow these rules, but I have also seen a number of walk-ins who just show up for a few hours. My group is happy to engage anyone at any time as there is a strong and knowledgeable core group who is at the building site every weekend. They are very good at training, encouraging and engaging new people.

Our Habitat chapter also work with two local universities, supporting Habitat student groups with members who volunteer throughout the school year. Other chapters may have other rules and ways of operating based on the number of their core volunteers and various logistics. Hope this helps some. 🙂
