There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

First Official Look at LEGO Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Sets; Animated Videos Announced!

Hold on to your bricks!

Fresh from Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany, LEGO and Universal Pictures have unveiled the official first look at the LEGO Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom toy line. While this is just a sneak peek at what’s to come, with the whole line being unveiled at New York Toy Fair, they shared numerous pictures and details – including announcing new animated LEGO content in the vein of The Indominus Escape is inbound!

NUREMBERG, Germany, Jan. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Universal Brand Development (Universal) and the LEGO Group announced today the launch of their largest Jurassic World partnership to date, offering an expanded line of construction sets, all-new animated content, and, for the first time ever, a lifestyle collection. In anticipation of the upcoming global theatrical release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in June, Universal is building upon the success of LEGO Jurassic World, with the debut of construction sets that span every LEGO age category, as well as two all-new, animated videos, and a collection of soft lines and publishing to reach audiences beyond the toy aisle.

“Fans embraced LEGO Jurassic World with our initial product launch, and we couldn’t wait to come back and give them more of what they love with new ways to play and new opportunities to interact with the brand,” said Vince Klaseus, President of Universal Brand Development. “The expansion of our partnership reflects Universal’s objective to create lifestyle programs and engaging fan experiences that reach every age category, 365 days-a-year.”

Little is known about the animated videos beyond that in the press release above, however it is fully expected to be based upon the latest Jurassic film, Fallen Kingdom. Whether or not they will be released for free online, sold as a DVD/Blu-ray set, or distributed in a different fashion remains to be seen – we suspect these may be shorter and online only, with something longer yet to be announced.

The official Fallen Kingdom sets shown off are as follows!

LEGO Jurassic World Blue’s Helicopter Pursuit

($39.99)

Builders can unite Owen with his lead Velociraptor in this set designed for fans, ages seven and up. The set includes a quadbike, helicopter, featuring rotating blades and dual searchlights. The set also includes three minifigures: Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), Ken Wheatley (Ted Levine) and a pilot, plus Blue, the Velociraptor.

LEGO Junior Jurassic World T. rex Breakout

($49.99)

Children as young as four can play along and build a posable T. rex, opening gate and a truck with Quick Start chassis. This LEGO Juniors set includes easier building instructions and quick start elements as well as three minifigures and a baby dinosaur figure. Minifig characters include Claire (as played by Bryce Dallas Howard)

DUPLO Junior Jurassic World T. rex Tower

($29.99)

This new LEGO DUPLO set is suitable for builders, ages two and older. This easy-to-build dinosaur features large building bricks and is great for creating endless role-play stories! Toddlers and their parents can build this set together, which features a T. rex with opening jaw, revolving lookout tower, car and an Owen LEGO® DUPLO® figure.

Followers of Jurassic Outpost who think they know all there is to know about the upcoming LEGO lineup need to think again – not only are the the previously listed sets coming, but there are exclusives that we have yet to hear details on! It seems likely with the April street date the retailers will show off their exclusives alongside the rest of the line, so be sure to keep your eye on our website!

In support of the theatrical launch of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Universal and the LEGO Group will globally launch 13 constructions sets that span across the various LEGO® play categories: LEGO Systems (ages 6+), LEGO Juniors (ages 4-7) and LEGO DUPLO (ages 2-4), plus a collectability offering with LEGO BrickHeadz, available this spring only at Walmart. The sets will hit shelves in April, with retailer exclusives at both Toys “R” Us and Walmart. Additionally, fans will find new soft line and publishing offerings available later this year.

On a final note, in a very surprising move, LEGO have seemingly teased the first official look at the films mysterious new ‘villain dinosaur’ (suspected to be called the Indoraptor) on the back of the boxart. As the dinosaur on the bottom left (75930) is clearly not the previously showcased Allosaurus or Baryonyx, nor is it a known Jurassic species, it certainly makes sense – plus it just doesn’t look like any known real dinosaur otherwise!

Check out the chart above, which suggests building your own hybrid, and also teases the Carnotaurus and Stygimoloch!

Stay tuned – New York Toy Fair is just two weeks away, and the Super Bowl bringing new Fallen Kingdom footage is even sooner! As always, sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think of the LEGO lineup!

  1. The leaked pictures of the other sets look stunning, thats why I will buy all of them on day 1! But regarding the animation thing, I truly hope that IF they are going to release it alongside the JW:FK blue-ray they do it from the release date. Not a few months later like they did with the Indominus Escape.
    SUPER EXCITED!

  2. I’m definitely buying the Velociraptor Blue Helicopter Pursuit set. I can’t wait for the Lockwood Manor set and the Carnotaurus set also.

  3. I wasn’t going to buy Legos this time around, but the helicopter is sweet and the breakout rex comes with a baby rex.

  4. What I want to know is if we’re going to get an expansion for the LEGO Jurassic World video game that adds the story for Fallen Kingdom. Does anyone else want this besides me?

    1. Yes please!!! I played that game for soooo long and I loved it! It was actually the first LEGO game I ever played. The jokes that were in it were so funny and just to relive all the films in LEGO form was awesome. And there’s something satifiying in smashing all the things around you haha. I really hope for an expansion about the Fallen Kingdom movie! Otherwise it was be another uncomplete LEGO game like the The Hobbit one, which misses the third movie.

      1. That’s exactly how I feel. I don’t need a rehash of the LEGO The Hobbit series. LEGO The Lord of the Rings series was completed, and The Hobbit only got two out of three movies adapted. The fact that they were so close but just decided to not make The Battle of the Five Armies really irritated me.

    2. Yes yes yes please! An expansion to the game with new levels and new dinosaurs (allosaurus, resized baryonyx, pachyrhinosaurus, stygimoloch, indoraptor and recolored buck TRex and bonus dinosaurus would be the best).

      1. Yeah, I remember being disappointed that the Buck and the JP3 rex weren’t recolored, as well as the male raptors from TLW. Also, the fact that the only recolored JP3 raptor was the male, and it was the alpha of the pack instead of the female. It would be really cool if they put more attention to detail into the dinosaurs.

    3. Totally agree, I want more for the Lego Jurassic video game. Did they do new editions when individual sequel is released?

      Would also be nice if they expanded on Lost World and JP3 portions as those felt a bit thin compared to JP1 and TLW

  5. “LEGO and Universal Pictures have unveiled the official first look at the LEGO Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom toy line.”
    “Check out the chart above, which suggests building your own hybrid, and also teases the Carnotaurus and Stygimoloch!”

    Looks like LEGO and Universal Pictures have unveiled the official first look at the LEGO Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Indoraptor, there on bottom left to the Carnotaurus.

  6. I saw these images the other day and really hoped the mystery dino was an Allosaurus. But seeing it now, it looks like it has a bump on its foot for a anchor claw.

  7. Anyone else notice that the Lego Indoraptor has a large cranium in proportion to the rest of its head? Maybe it’s even SMARTER than the Indominus!

    1. Brain size doesn’t equate intelligence. If that were the case, Blue Whales and Elephants would dominate the planet… And Mice would be smarter than you 😉

      1. Nice one smart pants… That last sentence could be a bad joke or a really uncool and rude thing to say to someone. Maybe you are replying this on a comment of a child who doesn’t have the knowledge yet, for all we know. I think you should keep it down a little with ”jokes” like these..

          1. Well lets just point out that i am almost 28 years old and was born before the first Jurassic Park movie even came out. So I think I’m definitely older than you 😉

  8. Well… Here’s hoping that us fans can get a chance to grab these for the Chinese rip them all off the shelves and fill ebay with copies… With the first sets, by the time I made it to the store they were all sold out! Now you either pay a Chinese bootlegger or pay over 500 for the bigger sets.

  9. I wonder how much the Helicopter set is gonna be. I also kinda want the stygymoloch set, but just for the stygy. The rest of that set looks boring. I’ll probably just end up buying the Helicopter set and ordering the stygymoloch on it’s own later.

  10. I can’t wait for the indoraptor but i was really hoping they would make a baryonix lego set and you’d think that they would put more detail into the baby trex.
