Instagram user exabrickslegogo_ reports (via lego_guyon02) that four new LEGO Jurassic World sets will launch later this year, bringing us a quartet of dinosaurs we’ve already seen in ABS: a Carnotaurus, a Stygimoloch, a Baryonyx and – of course – a T. rex.
The source material for each of these sets is a little up in the air at the mo, with lego_guyon02 speculating a potential mix of Jurassic Park, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Jurassic World: Dominion, Netflix’s animated Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous, and completely original designs by the LEGO Group.
Just one of those stands out as fairly unlikely in Jurassic World: Dominion, which was originally scheduled to premiere in June 2021, but has now been pushed back an entire year by the pandemic. Any planned tie-in LEGO sets would likely also have been delayed in turn (just as the LEGO Group has seemingly done with Marvel’s Eternals).
The rumoured sets run the gamut from $29.99 through to $79.99, with the latter set – 76942 Baryonyx Dinosaur Boat Escape – reportedly coming in at just 308 pieces. That gulf between part count and price may indicate multiple dinos in the box, so while the set names don’t suggest any new species, the LEGO Group could still surprise us.
76939 Stygimoloch Dinosaur Escape – 129 pieces – $39.99
76940 T. rex Dinosaur Fossil Escape – 198 pieces – $29.99
76941 Carnotaurus Dinosaur Chase – 240 pieces – $49.99
76942 Baryonyx Dinosaur Boat Escape – 308 pieces – $79.99
The first of those four sets is rumoured to be marked 4+, perhaps explaining its high price-per-piece ratio. We’ll find out for sure if and when the LEGO Group confirms these sets, which – given the theme’s usual release schedule – will likely arrive in June.
For now, treat this list just like all rumours, which is to say very lightly until confirmed otherwise. We’ll bring you more as we get it.
