Hold on to your bricks – LEGO is returning to Jurassic World in a big way. Following the release of the LEGO sets in 2015, there has been a void of the beloved construction blocks for the Jurassic franchise – despite many ‘LEGO Ideas’ sets gaining huge support. LEGO continued to support the franchise however with the release of the digital feature ‘LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape‘, yet new sets still alluded store shelves.
However, next year with the release of Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom that will change:
Architecture and Jurassic World 2018! We will have 5 normal JW themes, 3 from Juniors and 2 from Duplo! #legoleak #legoleak #legojurassicworld #legojurassicpark #legoarchitecture #architecture #jurassicpark #jurassicworld #legonerd #legofan #legostagram #legopic #legophoto #legostore #legoland #legominifigures
As you can see, there are a total of 10 sets planned – 5 standard LEGO sets (75926, 75927, 75928, 75929, 75930), 3 LEGO Junior sets (10756, 10757, 10758), and 2 DUPLO sets (10879, 10880). At this time, it seems that all will be themed to Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom, and not have ties to Jurassic Park 25th anniversary. For those unfamiliar, while DUPLO sets use plus sized blocks and are aimed at preschoolers, LEGO Juniour uses regular blocks, and are fully compatible with standard sets – they are just more simple to build, and aimed at younger audiences. It is also suspected though unconfirmed that there will be at least one additional standard set exclusive to a retailer, perhaps Walmart, like with the first Jurassic World.
While no details about the sets are currently available, it is still exciting to get confirmation LEGO will return to Jurassic World in a big way. Further, there are two very cool details within this document that are easy to miss as important, the first being the logo. As you can see, the Logo is the Fallen Kingdom logo, but it does not feature the subtitle – it is likely this will be the logo used on most of the merchandise for the upcoming film (as oftentimes studios simply market the brand name, not the individual films). The second detail is the the April release date – this is likely the street date for all the merchandise, and when you can expect many items in stores such as the new toy line from Mattel.
What type of sets do you want to see from LEGO for the upcoming sequel? While the Jurassic World sets were nice, many weren’t exactly film accurate, and we’re hopeful LEGO will pay closer attention to accuracy with their Fallen Kingdom lineup. Sound off in the comments below, and stay tuned for the latest news!
