The full range of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom LEGO sets were released earlier this week, and we’re continuing our reviews of these new, dinosaur-centric sets, following on from 75928 Pteranodon Chase and 75932 Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase. Today, we’re taking a look at one of the sets with a brand new dinosaur, 75929 Carnotaurus Gyrosphere Escape. The set includes 577 pieces, three minifigs, a baby dinosaur, and the main attraction, Carnotaurus.
What could be better than one LEGO BrickHeadz character? Perhaps two BrickHeadz characters! So that Super Hero fans aren’t forced to make a hard choice between Batman and Superman, LEGO is offering a very nice-looking duo of the most famous DC heroes in a single box. The new LEGO BrickHeadz 41610 Tactical Batman and Superman is the latest addition to the DC Justice League sets line-up; now the two main protagonists are joining the rest of the team. The set consists of just 209 pieces and retails at $19.99 / € 19.99.
When the original 2015 wave of Jurassic World sets retired, some people thought the theme wouldn’t return. But with the new Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom movie coming out in June, this popular line has been brought back to life. As The Brothers Brick has already reported, there will be 8 regular sets releasing next week. In addition, there will be related sets under the Brickheadz, Juniors, and Duplo themes. For this review we will focus on one of the smaller sets under the main theme: 75928 Pteranodon Chase. This set contains 126 pieces, including two minifigures and a Pteranodon dinosaur, and will retail for $19.99 USD.
The full range of LEGO sets for Jurassic World is now available in the US LEGO online store. If you’ve been waiting for these, now’s the time to get your hands on them. We’ve highlighted a few fan favourites below that we’d think you’d want to grab early.

The largest set in the first wave of LEGO Star Wars sets from Solo: A Star Wars Story is 75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon at 1,414 pieces for $169.99. The set depicts an earlier incarnation of Han Solo’s iconic freighter, long before he made extensive modifications and upgrades to it in the years leading up to its appearance in A New Hope.
Other than the color, what’s unique about this LEGO version, and how is it different from 75105 Millennium Falcon from The Force Awakens released barely two and a half years ago? Let’s dig in and find out…

Despite what your 12-year-old neighbor thinks, movies about theme parks set in artificial dinosaur habitats didn’t start in 2015 with Jurassic World starring Chris Pratt. They started back in 1993 with the Steven Spielberg classic Jurassic Park, based on the Michael Crichton novel of the same name. And as part of this year’s wave of LEGO sets tying into the latest sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, LEGO isn’t missing the opportunity to celebrate Jurassic Park’s 25th anniversary by taking us back to Isla Nublar. 75932 Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase includes 360 pieces, and is available beginning April 16 for $39.99 USD from the LEGO Shop Online.
The first Flagship store opened in Disney Resort in Shanghai back in May 2016 and was the largest LEGO Brand store in the world back in its opening. 2 years later, The LEGO Group has announced its second store scheduled to open in Autumn (end of the year) at Shanghai ShiMao Festival City in People’s Square located in the heart of the city. The new store is expected to be slightly more than half the size of the Disney Resort Store at 6297 sq feet (585 square meters) over two floors. In comparison, the first store was around 10,764 sq feet spread (1,000 square metres) over two floors.
Last year, the Shanghai Skyline LEGO Architecture skyline was revealed and with this new store in place, it is another stepping stone for LEGO’s growth in China. Read our review of the Shanghai skyline here.
The LEGO Star Wars sets from Solo: A Star Wars Story officially hit shelves on Friday, though we were able to bring you a couple early reviews with 75210 Moloch’s Landspeeder and 75207 Imperial Patrol Battle Pack. One of the smallest sets to include the titular hero is 75209 Han Solo’s Landspeeder, which retails for $29.99 in the US. The set includes 345 pieces and two minifigs.
The Minifigure Factory is a Gift-With-Purchase item that is quite unique in its own right and quite different from the regular promotional items — typically a build-and-display piece or a minifigure in a polybag. This set uses the box itself as part of the play construct. The theme is of a LEGO factory employee inspecting minifigures that roll off the assembly line, celebrating the 40th birthday of the first introduction of Minifigures. Let’s jump right in and take a look at what’s distinctive about this giveaway.
LEGO has gone all in with an incredible array of sets for the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom film, and the final set in the line has been unveiled. 75933 T. Rex Transport has 609 pieces and will retail for $69.99, with availability starting Monday, April 16.
