"I picked this set up, put it together relatively quickly and its a nice set. Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom sets are some of the first LEGO Dinosaurs I've had the opportunity to get and they look like great sets so I try to pick them up.
This set with 222 pieces contains the Stygimolock Dinosaur which is a nicely painted Velociraptor body, legs from Dilophosaurus, I think they're new arms, and a new head mould. Its an alright little Dinosaur, it's Raptor size with nice printing, but I think I actually like the Raptor better as a dino. The Velociraptor has a snap jaw with teeth, the Stygimoloch does not have a separate lower jaw and something I'm noticing is that Stygimoloch is an Herbivor. I have the T-Rex Transport and the Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase sets with a brown Raptor, and both T-Rex and Velociraptor (carnivors) have black claws. Stygimoloch claws are white. I prefer the overall look or the black claws. Stigimoloch alright Dino though. The head is new, and 4 tooth like horns need to be built into the back of it. They and the colour of them add some depth dimension to the already nice new head mould
Mini Figures are few but good. A key character Dr Wu, and another black and blue guard, all of which are dfferent in head/hat/accesories in every JW FK set.
The cage build itself is good. It ends up being a nice complete pen built out of fewer larger pcs rather than more smaller bricks. I think they did this because it means larger stickers like control panels and calendars end up on 1 pc rather than overlapping over 2 or 3 bricks, but it ends up being an alright size.
Stil I think what they could've done to give this set more value is move those red light torch pieces somewhere else and added 2 more of those black electric fence sections to make the pen just a little bit bigger. That's not much extra as far as parts and cost and it would enlarge the area quite a bit.
Great set, I got it at double VIP points but it's either a slight bit too expensive OR just needs a little bit more to be perfect for the price."
"I just got done building this T-Rex Transport and realized it's one of my favorite sets I own. There is only 1 review on it so far so I figured I would give you my honest opinion of the set.
It's 609 pc and $89 (Canadian) and I picked it up at double VIP points. I doesn't seem like much for the price, the box is smaller than I thought it would be, but really it's a thicker than usual box and there's 3 big bags of parts that actually seem worth the price. When you look at it, like another Jurassic Park set I picked up, there's quite a few large pcs in the set.
One of the highlights of the set, especailly to me who does not own one yet is obviously the Tyrannosaurus Rex. This version looks nice. Really cool. If you asked me, looking at previous versions it might very well be the best to date. What else can I say? The color and tiger stripe printing on this LEGO Animal look amazing. It's a must have.
Mini figures are excellent with 2 different guards, actually going on the 3 sets I own that include guards (4 if you include the one I just ordered), every single one of them seems to have the same body, but different head, hat and accessories and they all look excellent. In this set one of the guards includes a bandana covering his lower face, a baseball hat and a gun that fires studs. The other incudes a (plastic) wool hat and an electro staff. The set also includes the character Zia Rodriguez with a cool unique print, a blue syringe and a large fold up computer build which is also pretty cool. The set also includes a mini Blue Raptor piece.
The truck and trailer is an outstanding build. I don't know what else to say about it, but it's an amazing tractor trailer build. It would be great in any city and It fits the T-Rex very well. The color of everything looks great together. The tractor/trailer looks smaller than you would think given the number of pcs in the set, but it really is a solid build, looks great and you know theres quite a few pieces going into it.
I think the only 2 things I found strange about the set was 1) There is not a Jurassic World logo anywhere in the set. Not a big deal to me, but just an observation and 2) I was surprised at the lack of spare parts in the set. There were a few small 1x1 parts I would expect doubles of, I can think of 3 and there were none. I was surprised at that.
Up until Jurassic World, I dont own any LEGO Dinosaurs, so I'm happy to snag as many of these as I can
Highly recommended. It's Very nice model and worth the price in my opinion."
"I was in Toys R Us in Canada looking for some clearance items and on a whim picked one of these new sets. I love the starter sets.
This one is geat in every way. Cool pcs, I like the frozen dragon fly pc. The dog is awesome. Really cool Mini Figures with nice printing and interesting accessories like snow shoes and hats/helmets. The snow mobile and trailer look really great as a LEGO vehicle and something I knew about with this theme that is much more striking in person is the colour scheme. It's so nice. The Orange and Blue look really good together. Over all, this little set exceeded my expectations in every way and makes me want more Arctic sets.
I'll definitely pick up at least one more of the larger sets in the City Arctic theme in the future. Now LEGO, all we need is some white base plates."
"I never end up with an entire series of CMFs, close on a few, but no and I don't mind. I do enjoy the Collectible Mini Figures as a LEGO concept.
I have 4 of these LEGO Batman Series 2, no duplicates, and I like every one of the 4 I got. These figs are for the most part "loaded". They often include more than 1 really cool, big element. Joker gets a popsicle, that cool floatation device, and a camera. Very cool fig. Dick Greyson includes the boom box and an ice cream cone, also really cool. Alfred, an electric Guitar. I also got Bat Merch Batgirl, and that's a much cooler figure than I though it would be with great printing. Cool figures, I don't think I could've ask for a better first 4 and hope to snag a few more before they're gone."
"This was a fun quick build and ends up being a really cool display. I see it as more of a display pc, than a play set, but I'm never one to "play" with my models, but yeah. 4 mini figs, a nice old school brown Raptor.
The price is "iffy", 360 pcs, but there's a very good variety of pcs, and plenty of large pcs, plates, wedge plates. It's ok there.
The built up set though is outstanding. I said it somewhere else, it reminds me of something that would come out in IDEAS. I built it up over a few hrs, and I don't see pictures of the set the way I have it (which is a no brainer really), I know one of the great things about this set is accessories like unbrellas and cleavers, spoons, pots and pans (the variety of pcs), but if you get rid of the pot on the counter (there's another one with a pan there anyway), there is 3 studs for each Raptor foot for it to sit perfectly perched on the counter, high enough to be completely visible. Throw a sausage in his hand, It's amazing.
It's a really nice display set, and the "artsy" idea of basically cutting the room in half diagonally (also there is also that big triangular shaped brick used in the wall that also adds a nice angle to the wall which is cool), and then attaching 2 familiar looking smaller rooms (also cut on an angle) at either end is one of the things that makes it a good display. Everything is completely visible from the front angle, including the Velociraptor if you put him on the counter.
"But I love this set. I love pretty much every Lego Batman Movie set, and this set is no exception. It was a fun build. It has just the right amount of pcs to be a satisfying build and the completed mech, is very cool looking. It's wacky with the chicken in a container on the back of the mech, laying eggs to be used as ammunition for the left arm/gun, and a giant beater for a right arm, and it still manages to look very cool and is poseable and sturdy. There is also some neat pcs/elements in the set like the printed Free Range arm disc. The Mini Figures are alright but Batman (as cool as he is) is very common, Egghead and Condiment King are like I said, alright, but there are many more interesting characters in other sets from this theme.
Overall, Egghead Mech Food Fight is one of my favorite smaller Lego Batman Movie sets. I would give it 4.5 only because the Mini Figures are only alright, but there is no .5 in the ratings so 4 it is. I would definitely recommend it."
"I'm a big classic Star Wars and LEGO fan and I have a few big non-SW sets in my collection but I haven't bought anything new in a year. Knowing about this set, I don't have any USC Star Wars sets and I know this one might not be around for much longer, I decided to go for it. I backordered it a few weeks ago and I got it this week. I built it relatively slowly over the past 3 days, and the first thing about the model is I knew it was big, but this thing is huge and you know it by bag 2. It doesn't quite come through in pictures and videos, LEGO's Design Video for this model almost pulls off the scope and scale in picture with Hans (the designer) showing it off, but when it's built up in front of you, it's big. The other thing about it is I'm baffled at how smart this thing is designed. It's so smart, genius even the way they pulled of the angles and curves of this ship and the inside frame (I was thinking this could almost technically be a Technic set) but I wonder how the designers do this? Do they just pull it out of their mind with knowledge and experience in LEGO, trial and error with the advantage of being able to access any LEGO pc that exists or is it something much more "simple" like inputting dimesions and a computer pumps out the model, bricks and instructions? There is no way a human designed this (jk). And the finished product is astounding. It's a stunning cool and big rendition of Slave 1. It's bigger than any model or toy of Slave 1 that I have ever seen, and I have seen quite a few and it looks like Slave 1 from all angles. There is detail everywhere, all around the ship. The model looks amazing on the included stand. I don't want to take it apart now that I've built it either, I want to buy an acrylic display case for it. It also looks amazing in landing mode which has me wondering how much it would cost me to build a Cloud City type of landing platform for it. Stunning. I mean the USC Millennium Falcon is pretty cool too (but expensive) and to be honest seeing the new USC Millennium Falcon sent set me into Slave 1 impulse buy mode, but having built and seen Slave 1 now, it's not LEGO's biggest set but it is without a doubt huge and one of it's coolest for sure. It's only 1996 pcs but some of those slanted red pcs for the hull are big and there's quite a few of them, and also a few in green too. Great set. It's hands down my current favorite and I don't think much could top it to be honest. Very glad I bought it."
"I'm just starting to get back into LEGO and decided to purchased this set for 2 reasons...
1)Out of boredom. I had some VIP points and wanted to build something (more) without spending (much more), so I used them on this and another smaller set for a huge discount.
2)I am planning on possibly building some kind of small City dioramma and I figured this recycling truck would be a nice start and would fit in perfectly to such a setting.
I wasn't disappointed. Very nice little set. I like the orange bricks and the over-all color but the truck itself is what makes this set a winner. Proportionally, it looks more like an actual recycling truck, instead of a caricature of a truck. It's only a 1 seater, I think the tires could be bigger, but aside from those factors, it really looks like a recycling truck. I like that.
IMO the only real negative about this set are stickers, but the graphics on those stickers add quite a bit to the over-all look of the finished build, and I understand that printing to the parts would likely add a quite a bit to the cost.
You get the truck, two nice looking mini figures, and I always like it when a smaller set incudes some other interactive element, in this case a recycling bin.
Nice, inexpensive set. I would give it a 4.5/5 rating but the system won't allow .5 so I gave it a 5. Highly recommended."
