Dinosaurs return to LEGO with 2012 LEGO Dino sets [News]

I’m not sure where Brickshelfer grogall has gotten all the official photos of 2012 LEGO sets, but I keep finding more high-res photos of upcoming sets. The latest is the “Dino” line, reminiscent of the Dino Attack/Dino 2010 sets from a few years ago.

5885 Triceratops Trapper includes a tan triceratops with a bulky 4×4 vehicle:

The new dinosaurs reflect the improvements to animal molds and printing we’ve seen recently in other themes. The Tyrannosaurus rex in 5886 T-Rex Hunter looks simultaneously more LEGO-like and realistic (at least compared to the LEGO dinosaurs from the Dino Attack sets).

I’ll withhold judgment on the vehicle designs until I see them in person (presumably in January), but I really like what I’m seeing of the creatures.

    The dinosaurs are perfect. Too bad the vehicles are terrible. I mean, of all the color schemes. Trans-neon-green is (usually) the worst color to use, and mixed with yellow tends to make me want to puke.

    That’s good news! I actually like vehicles so much, they have a good color scheme (I agree with the guy above about trans neon green – even trans light blue could be better).

    These dinosaurs look good, but it doesn’t look like this line will have anything approaching the awesomeness of the old Dino line helicopter.
