LEGO Jurassic World T. Rex Tracker

April 27, 2016

 

 

(LEGO $69.99)  

Thanks in large part to the Jurassic World movie, 2015 was the year of the dino in toyland! LEGO has a line that delivers settings that are fun to consturuct and have lots of scary "dino" moments built in. This particular set comes with 520 pieces including a pretty mean looking T. rex. Comes with Hoskins, Acu and Vet (characters from the movie). We also liked the interesting vehicle build that carries the cage for the T. rex if you're lucky enough to capture him. Comes with a motorcycle (as if that's ever a good idea around a T. rex!).For an even bigger set, there's the Indominus Rex Breakout (comes with 1156 pieces!) including Dr. Wu, Zach, Vet and Acu. The structure has lots of moving pieces including the doors that are supposed to keep the dino trapped, a helicopter and fun ball (holding one of the characters) that can be propelled away from the structure and offer some protection from the dinosaur. Fans of the collection, will most likely want to collect all five dinosaurs.Two smaller sets are also fun: Raptor Rampage (324 pieces) comes with two really scary Raptors (when are raptors anything but scary?), Claire, Acu and Owen, a Vet Unit Vehicle and a motorcycle--for the money this has a lot of pretend play built into it. The other is Dilophosaurus Ambush (with 248 pieces) comes with one dinosaur, a small jeep, Gray, Acu and an enclosed ball where one character can roll away from the dinosaur.
