Rubber Peeling in Just 3 Weeks!!!
" I was so excited to get this set for Christmas. It has a clone trooper decorated with Ahsoka's markings from The Clone Wars Season 7. It had Ahsoka Tano, my favorite Star Wars character. I loved playing with this set.
But yesterday, I noticed that the rubber on Ahsoka's lekku were already peeling. Not enough that I am going to order a new one, but it is annoying. One day I might order one when the damage is enough that I would consider it "broken" and I might order a replacement, but I looked and they are out of stock. I'm worried that I won't be able to get a replacement short of buying a new set. Kind of a sad ending to what should have been hard plastic in the first place. "

Deep Undergrowth and Plants
" I bought this in my New Year's Day purchase. My, is it worth it!!! I love that it came with so many extra pieces, such as another flower stalk and flower. This is absolutely worth it, and I plan to throw several in to my next few orders.
One of the reasons these are so nice is that they are like the Classic sets, in that you can build whatever you want, and these will nicely compliment them.
Another reason is that they can be added to nearly any build. The white leaves can be added to a snowy tree, the orange leaves can be added to a fall forest, and the fences can fence in a garden.
After putting these in my LEGO Jurassic World, I love it even more. "

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Sub
" In my New Year's Day LEGO purchase, I decided to throw this set in because of its similarity to a vehicle from the introduction to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: the submarine. In the movie, it dove into the Mosasaurus tank, got a bone sample of the Indominus Rex, and ultimately was eaten by the Mosasaurus. This works very well, although I will have to get a minifigure that has realistic coloring. I will likely be able to build one with my spare pieces.
Overall, this is a great purchase, and any Jurassic World fan should get this inexpensive but full-of-value set. "

Kids can recreate scenes from Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 2 and play out their own speeder-bike-riding, missile-shooting battle stories with this Trouble on Tatooine (75299) building toy. Includes The Mandalorian and Tusken Raider LEGO® minifigures, each with weapons for roleplay battles, plus a LEGO figure of the Child (the popular character affectionately known as Baby Yoda). The speeder has a LEGO® minifigure seat and saddlebag for the Child to sit in. The set also features a buildable Tusken hut hideout and spring-loaded, missile-shooting ballista for the Tusken Raider. Great for solo building and play or for sharing the fun with friends, this awesome construction toy makes the best birthday present, holiday gift or surprise treat for creative kids aged 7 and up. The speeder measures over 1.5 in. (3 cm) high, 5 in. (13 cm) long and 1.5 in. (3 cm) wide, and this complete set combines brilliantly with other LEGO® Star Wars™ buildable playsets for creative play. Thinking of buying this 277-piece set for a newcomer to LEGO® building? No worries. It comes with easy-to-follow illustrated instructions so they can build with confidence. There are LEGO® Star Wars™ sets to thrill fans of all ages, whether they want to recreate famous scenes, roleplay their own stories or just build and display the authentic construction models. LEGO® components meet the highest industry standards to ensure they are consistent and compatible for a simple, strong connection every time – it’s been that way since 1958. LEGO® bricks and pieces are tested to the max to make sure they meet stringent safety standards.

Grogu/The Child/Baby Yoda!!!!
" I got ordered this set about an hour into 2021. It came today, and WOW!!! It's amazing. I love the little Grogu figure, and the shiny new beskar Din Djarin is amazing. I also love that LEGO is exploring the good side of Tusken Raiders, just like Star Wars has been doing with the series, "The Mandalorian."
The hut is awesome, and builds the perfect amount of the hut to have nice play value. Many might say that the ballista or the speeder is the main part of the set, but I think a Tusken Raider's home is an important thing too. I would say that the camp fire and hut is the main part of the set, though the other builds are awesome, too.
The speeder uses a lot of creative brick-hacks, and the spot for Grogu is cool too. It is a little hard to sit Mando in the driver's seat, and he has to lean back a little, which is why I remove a star from play value.
Finally, the ballista. It is another build filled with brick-hacks, and it looks so incredible when it is finished. It can actually shoot, and, according to Bricklink, is the first time a shiny silver missle has been in a set.
Overall, I love this set, and it is the best Star Wars purchase I have ever made! "

A New Kind of Baseplate Fun
" I haven't ever gotten a basepalte other than the 48x48 stud light bluish gray baseplate (https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/gray-baseplate-10701?p=10701&utm_campaign=bazaarvoice&utm_content=Default&utm_medium=Default&utm_source=Profiles), but I got this for the Pleistocene (Ice Age) exhibits in my LEGO Jurassic World. I bought a LEGO mammoth on Bricklink, and this will be great for my room. It will look much better than white piece on top of a gray baseplate.
Some people don't like how flimsy these are, and it's very true. But as I mentioned in my review of the gray baseplate, a piece this size on Pick a Brick or Bricklink would be very expensive. Yes, I prefer them thicker and having anti-studs on the bottom, but it is a nice trade-off, and I likely wouldn't get them if they were thick. They'd just be too expensive.
Lastly, the color. I am glad that they have different colors of baseplates, but I wish that they were 48x48 studs like the gray one, instead of 32x32 studs. It would allow even more creative building. Nevertheless, this is an amazing piece. (Don't worry about the high part-to-price ratio. It's fine.) "

A Cool New Gallimimus and Pteranodon
" I am very glad I got this set today. I found it on an excellent sale at Target’s “Black Friday All Month” celebration. I built it with my dad, who also had a lot of fun with it.
I’ve talked about the Owen in other reviews (https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/dr-wu-s-lab-baby-dinosaurs-breakout-75939), but I haven’t been able to talk about this version of Claire before. It is very far from an exclusive, and being a collector since 2018, I have a lot of these. However, in 2020 releases alone (Baby Dinosaur Breakout, Indominus Rex vs. Ankylosaurus, this set, and Velociraptor: Biplane Rescue Mission), it is an exclusive, and, being the Claire featured in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar, this set will become a need just through that for intense collectors like myself. The ACU Trooper is an exclusive, although all the pieces have been seen in various sets and themes before, and I enjoyed the head, especially since he’s the drone guy. He has a remote control for two brick-built drones, which are pretty fun to play with.
On to the build. I guarantee it is much wider than you will imagine. After examining the blue prints found on the set’s LEGO page, I see that it is almost a square build. Anyway, it was a very fun build! I can’t say much about it, but I do have two complaints. The first one is that the back-lab droops down in the back. I was able to make a sliding thing on the bottom with 4 pieces, and now it is even better than before. The other is that the area where the minifigures sit is very tight. I can barely reach in and place something in the corner that I have put in many of my ACU vehicles: Dilophosaurus anti-venom. In some canon work, it was stated that they had Dilophosaurus anti-venom all over the park, so I made some with my most common 1x1 cylinder and my most common transparent 1x1 round tile. I made about 18 and put them all over the park.
Issues or not, this was a great set.

A Fun Little Polybag For Any Kid
" I got this polybag last Easter, and chose now to do a review for it.
This is a pretty cool polybag for the small price (though other websites tend to double or triple the price). I love the little bone, raptor (I use them as compies), and enclosure. I built a little exhibit around it, and find it very cool. There's not much to say about such a tiny set, but I found the brick-hacks very cool, such as the faucet, bowl, and water tank, and the chicken treat hanging above the pen. I do wish that it had included an Owen, maybe the one in the Bricktober Jurassic World set (https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/bricktober-jurassic-world-5005255), although with a different face. Despite that and the price-per-part ratio, I think that this was a great purchase. "

Ian Malcolm, and the others too. But Mostly Ian!
" I mainly got this set for the Ian Malcolm minifigure, which is more appropriate than the one featured in LEGO 75936 Jurassic World Jurassic Park: T. Rex Rampage. Even if you don’t have an opinion on the appropriateness of that, he wouldn’t walk around a park like that (and frankly after what he’s been through, he shouldn’t be walking through a Park at all). This one also appears in one episode of LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar. The minifigures came assembled for anyone who enjoys the process of building them, which, I personally do not.
The Owen Grady minifigure was the one from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, in the clips where he was training the baby velociraptors. (I used the velociraptor for another Compsognathus, but others may not care very much about having different sizes of velociraptor figures.) The minifigure is all ready to train the future Raptor Squad, from the bag of treats to the gauntlet to keep them from eating his arm. I don’t like the weird faces, but I’m not even going to try to guess what emotions he is trying to show. I switched it out with one of my many extra Owen Grady heads.
This Claire Dearing minifigure is also from Fallen Kingdom. It is “Lockwood Estate” Claire (thank you to Brickipedia for helping me figure that out), the one who talked with Benjamin Lockwood (who we still need a minifigure for) and Eli Mills at the beginning of the movie. It comes with a phone, which I am really happy about because my other Claire’s don’t have a phone, but it wasn’t relevant to that part of the movie.
The Ian Malcolm figure will be hard for me to talk about without breaking into a Jurassic Park debate, but I’ll try my best to limit quotes. This minifigure was awesome. It came with a flare, just like he had with him when he almost died (the first time, for anyone asking, “Which time?”). He then took half a movie to barely not die, while continuing to dish out awe-inspiring quotes about the irony of humans. “Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.”
All in all, this was a great set, and I wish Toys R Us could have produced more before their untimely demise.

The Kids. This'll Give the Parents Nightmares.
" This is an amazing set! I combined it with the LEGO 75937 Jurassic World Triceratops Rampage for a nice Gyrosphere Valley perimeter fence. This Indominus Rex is much more accurate figure than from 2015, and the Ankylosaurus is cool too. The Indominus has a stud underneath its claws, so it can hold two minifigures (three if you count the meal-in-progress), and the Ankylosaurus has a swinging tail. Unfortunately, the head is not removable and as such, you can not switch it with other dinosaur figures.
The Gray figure has short legs to match the movie height, unlike the 2015 minifigure, and the Claire design from the 2015 Jurassic World movie is new and, as of writing, exclusive to this set. The Gyrosphere Operator (we call him Josh, like in the LEGO Jurassic World video game), has the perfect face for his emotions in the movie. The Zach Mitchell figure (they mixed up Gray and Zach on the box, and yes, I have confirmed this on several external Jurassic World websites) has a slightly more accurate hair, but I do with they had a distantly emotional face like he is for much of the opening of the movie. Finally, the Owen Grady. I have 12 Jurassic World sets, and 11 Owen figures. The legs, head, and hair are all identical, but three of the sets I own have unique torsos (I don't have the Gallimimus and Pteranodon set yet, but the Owen from there is also in the Baby Dinosaur set that I do have) Still, that's a lot of Owens. I wish Owen had been exempt and been replaced with a Zara Young, tourist, or another Ankylosaurus altogether, even if it was another $10-$15. What would be cool is being able to buy dinosaurs by themselves, even if it was about $50 for an Indominus and $30 for a T Rex, or tourist minifigure packs like the Harry Potter ones, in order to make my Gyrosphere Valley the one from the movie, packed with tourists and lots of dinosaurs.
The build was awesome, and very accurate too. There is a place to slide any ID to the operator, and a sign that can be disconnected from the trees. I also love the creative brick-hacks in the railing, roof, turnstile, and turn launcher. The turn-launcher is awesome, but be sure to turn it fast or the ride will be closed as they remove the Gyrosphere from the tracks. Come on, guys. I just work here. "

A Very Challenging and Enriching Build
" I have been building LEGO sets since I was 5, but this set is much harder than any other set I've ever built. I still consider myself an Expert Builder, but it was still very difficult and fun. I very much see why it's 16+, but I think it would be okay for any kid down to about 12.5, depending on how patient, gentle, and focused your child is on getting this done.
Anyone who looks at my previous reviews will realize I am obsessed about the LEGO Jurassic World theme. When I saw this set I knew I needed it. (In the movie, Jurassic World, Main Street is lined with several dinosaur skeletons, and a fun laugh for intense fans is that the T Rex absolutely destroys the Spinosaurus one.) I got this for my birthday, and opened it soon after starting the LEGO Jurassic World Indominus Rex vs Ankylosaurus. The Pteranodon is okay for even down to age 7, in my opinion. It has moving parts at almost every joint, and is even removable around the connection to the movable display pole. The others are much harder to build.
The triceratops is on the largest stand, so large that in order to put it on a baseplate, I had to rebuild most of the base and legs. The hips were fragile, but the rest of this was pretty strong. Not like, play-strong, but strong enough for a dinosaur skeleton for older kids that is literally attached to the base. I do wish it wasn't leaning down in the dog-like "Do you want to play?" position, so it could be in an action pose, but I guess it could be about to jab the T Rex.
The T Rex was extremely difficult, but completely worth it. Not only is it extremely accurate, but it has a 8-jointed tail, a 3-jointed neck, movable fingers, elbows, shoulders, and jaw. My only problem with the T Rex skeleton, is the clip joint on the neck is very loose, and always leans down. I would, on a normal set, simply edit that joint with my variety of extra pieces, but I don't want to make this set no longer anatomically correct. It can still roar down, but not up without looking awkward. However, I still give this model a 5/5.
In entirety, this was an amazing set that was very much worth the challenge. I can't comment on the price because it was a gift, but I am pretty sure it would have been worth it. "
