LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils Set Coming!

Back in May of this year, the LEGO Ideas team announced (see links at the end of this post) that the Dinosaurs Fossils Skeletons Natural History Collection by French LEGO fan Jonathan Brunn (a.k.a. Mukkinn) was approved to become an official LEGO set. And now, we can finally see what the set will look like! Below are the details of the #21320 LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils set. Enjoy!

Here is the official description of the set: Learn about life on Earth millions of years ago and create a stunning centerpiece with this collectible #21320 LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils building kit for adults. This 910-piece set offers an immersive, creative building experience for natural history enthusiasts who will appreciate the authentic details of the two dinosaur skeleton models (Tyrannosaurus rex and Triceratops) and the pterosaur reptile (Pteranodon) skeleton model. The models are built to 1:32 scale, can be adjusted into lifelike poses, and each one comes with its own stand so they can be placed alongside the included sapiens skeleton figure for a museum-style display. To complete the set, there’s also a paleontologist minifigure with various accessories for imaginative role-play fun. All in all, this archaeology set makes a great dinosaur gift for adults to build solo or to share their passion for natural history with family and friends.

  • A wonderfully detailed dinosaur fossils set featuring buildable, posable, 1:32 scale models of Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, and Pteranodon skeletons, each with display stands to create LEGO style natural history museum exhibits.
  • Also includes a sapiens skeleton figure with a display stand, and a paleontologist minifigure with a buildable crate, plus dinosaur egg, bone, hat, and book elements for creative role-play.
  • This collectible LEGO Ideas dinosaur set includes 910 pieces for an immersive, rewarding building experience.
  • New to LEGO building? Don’t worry. This paleontologist kit comes with a booklet featuring easy-to-follow building instructions, fascinating facts about the Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, and Pteranodon, and information about the set’s fan creator and LEGO designer.
  • Makes a wonderful paleontologist gift for LEGO builders aged 16+ and anyone with a passion for natural history and dinosaurs.
  • The pterosaur and dinosaur skeleton models make an eye-catching display. The T. rex skeleton is the biggest of the 3, measuring over 7” (20cm) tall and 15” (40cm) long.
  • Includes 910 pieces.
  • Recommended for ages 16+.

Here are a few more close-up pictures of the three skeletons. I see some interesting pieces and building techniques, so this will be a good set for learning skeleton building.

Prices are as follows: US $59.99 – CA $79.99 – DE €59.99 – UK £54.99 – FR €59.99 – DK 549DKK – AUD $99.99 (Euro pricing varies by country).

    Wow. Forgot about this one. It looks good as far as I can see. Not a dinosaur expert though. Seems like it’s a great educational set.

    Weren’t the original ones tan? I think that would have been a better color. White is too bright. But other than that they look cool. Might pick this up. The price is not bad.

    I hope the nameplates are printed! Nice set, and I think it’s more fun than the original (although that one was more accurate).

      Unfortunately, all the decorations are stickers. 🙁

    I want the t rex. That’s it. It would look awesome next to a regular lego t rex from Jurassic World.

  • DavidH October 16, 2019, 9:41 AM

    Tan would have been a better choice for the color, but I think I will get it anyway. I guess they didn’t want to recolor a bunch of pieces.

    Too bad some of the pieces are tan and gray. Other than that I like it. The original was much more detailed but was probably not feasible as lego set. Now if we would just get a natural history museum modular that would be great.

  • The Other Mark October 16, 2019, 1:10 PM

    I think they did a good job. Not as intricate as the original, but more practical as a Lego set. As far as other colors in the skeletons, I just look at them as supporting pieces or additions to fill in missing bones. In fact, if I would buy this set, I would even replace more parts with other colors to give it a restored skeleton look.

    • admin October 16, 2019, 1:43 PM

      Hm… I like your idea! Replace some of those white ribs with tan ones, and it will look like a reconstructed dino, which is actually more realistic than all white.

    I didn’t care for the original submission but I like the final set. I guess it’s more interesting. Cool set.

  • Håkan October 16, 2019, 8:28 PM

    Hmm, too big for me, I think. Doesn’t tick my boxes.

    On a related note, I can’t refrain from posting this sublime masterpiece…

    This will go great with my Jurassic Park theme. I can make a Museum set up. Maybe I can take the bone pieces and pretend they’re digging them out for the first time. So many possibilities.

    Very interresting presentation of this dinosaur fossils set.
