The next LEGO Ideas set, teased yesterday, will be 21320 Dinosaur Fossils, due for release on November 1 exclusively at LEGO.com and official brand stores. Inside the box are 910 pieces that build a T-rex, Triceratops and a Pteranodon on museum style display stands as well as a LEGO-sapien. An archaeologist minifigure with accessories rounds out the set.
Jonathan Brunn, a graphic and web designer from in Perpignan, France, came up with the original product idea that was developed by LEGO designer and dinosaur enthusiast Niels Milan Pedersen to become this set.
“When I was little, my passion for dinosaurs was almost obsessional. Dinosaurs were the most incredible thing ever for me, so I made this project to please my inner child,” says Brunn. “I would have loved it as a kid, and I think every kid who loves dinosaurs and science would agree with me.”
Here is the official product description:
Learn about life on Earth millions of years ago and create a stunning centerpiece with this collectible LEGO Ideas 21320 Dinosaur Fossils toy building kit for adults. This 910-piece set offers an immersive, creative building experience for natural history enthusiasts who will appreciate the authentic details of the 2 dinosaur skeleton models (Tyrannosaurus rex and Triceratops) and the pterosaur reptile (Pteranodon) skeleton toy.
The models are built to 1:32 scale, can be adjusted into lifelike poses and each one comes with its own stand so they can be placed alongside the included sapiens skeleton figure for a museum-style display. To complete the set, there’s also a paleontologist toy minifigure with various accessories for imaginative role-play fun. All in all, this archaeology toy makes a great dinosaur gift for adults to build solo or to share their passion for natural history with family and friends.
