In 2015, LEGO released a range of sets for Jurassic World which quickly became fan favorites due to their variety and creativity. While the builds weren’t very accurate to the film itself, they were fun, and captured the Jurassic play factor and identity fairly well. Due to their roaring success, fans have been eagerly looking forward to how LEGO would step up the game with their Fallen Kingdom range – it was widely assumed the new range would be more involved, and accurate to what was on screen in the movie.
Thanks to LEGO fan site [Redacted] fans questions have been answered, and we have detailed descriptions of the sets! Check out their video below, and read on for our write-up based on their information and more(warning – potential spoilers):

LEGO toys are always fun, and these are no different, but after the success of Jurassic World, plus the solid sales of the merchandise, we were left hoping for more. LEGO usually does a great job with licensed properties (look no further than Star Wars or Harry Potter), so by comparison, these look particularly simplistic. It would be easier to be less judgmental if LEGO prices were not so steep, but considering their profit margin, it’s hard not to want a little more.
Perhaps there is yet another set yet to be discovered, exclusive to a specific retailer, which will help further flesh out the line with new content. With any luck, LEGO will continue to support the Jurassic brand after these sets, and not wait for the next film, offering more variety in time.
Again, thanks to [redacted] for first reporting on these LEGO sets. The sets are expected to release some time after April 16th, 2018. Sound off in the comments below to let us know what set you’re looking forward to the most, and stay tuned for all the latest news!
