Universal Brand Development (Universal) and the LEGO Group today announced an expansion to the popular LEGO Jurassic World portfolio of toys and content — four new building sets inspired by an all-new, animated mini-series LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar. The sets will be on display in the LEGO booth No. 1335 during Toy Fair New York from Feb. 16-19.
Following the adventures of Claire, Owen, and fan-favorite dinosaurs seen in the 2018 animated specials LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit, this new mini-series runs 13 episodes and will debut later this year.
“Jurassic World is one of those properties that just works so well in LEGO form,” says Jill Wilfert, vice president of licensing and entertainment for LEGO Group. “The theme and stories appeal to kids and adults at the same time, and with this content, we offer a fun and unique twist by adding LEGO creativity and humor to an evergreen property. We’re thrilled to expand our successful partnership with Universal to introduce more original LEGO Jurassic World stories that will inspire imaginations and continued play.”
Revealed for the first time today, the four building sets include:
Dilophosaurus on the Loose
Explore LEGO Jurassic World with Owen Grady and build his drone to look after the dinosaurs. Kids will meet Hudson Harper, a kid who knows everything there is to know about dinosaurs, and build the market stall in the shape of a dinosaur head with LEGO bricks. But they’ll have to stay sharp: a young Dilophosaurus is on the loose and gaining on Hudson. Kids can fly to the rescue with Owen’s drone, fire the net shooter, and capture the dinosaur.
Dilophosaurus on the Loose is intended for kids ages 6 and up, includes 168 pieces, and will retail for $19.99.
Baryonyx Face-Off: The Treasure Hunt
Kids can rush to stop Danny Nedermeyer and Sinjin Prescott’s dangerous treasure hunt in LEGO Jurassic World. Danny and Sinjin have a map and old videotape to help them find the legendary, hidden treasure on Isla Nublar, but a Baryonyx dinosaur steps in and forces them into hiding. Kids can help Owen Grady and Claire Dearing fix up an off-road buggy and drive with them and Red the dog to catch the bad guys before they steal the treasure.
Baryonyx is intended for kids ages 7 and up, includes 434 pieces, and will retail for $59.99.
Take a ride on the awesome new LEGO Jurassic World Egg Spinner with Simon Masrani and Allison Miles. But, they’ll have to watch out: there’s been a power failure and the mighty Triceratops has escaped. Kids can dangle a carrot in front of the dinosaur to distract it and try to save the tourist.
Triceratops Rampage is intended for kids ages 7 and up, contains 447 pieces, and will retail for $59.99.
T. rex vs Dino-Mech Battle
Danger! Danny Nedermeyer is roaming Jurassic Worldpark in his huge Dino-Mech on a mission to steal the treasure hidden in Isla Nublar’s volcano. But first he has to face the mighty T. rex. Just jump in the boat with Owen Grady, Claire Dearing, Vic Hoskins — plus baby Velociraptors Blue, Delta, Echo, and Charlie — and speed to the battle scene. Kids can fire the boat’s stud shooters at the Dino-Mech and put the T. rex to sleep with the tranquilizer gun. Danny must be stopped before he finds a way to smash into the volcanic rock and steal the treasure.
T. rex vs Dino-Mech Battle is intended for kids ages 8 and up, features 716 pieces, and will retail for $89.99.
All sets will hit shelves this fall.
