LEGO Jurassic Park 30th anniversary 2023 sets revealed

Five LEGO Jurassic Park 30th anniversary sets are roaring on to shelves in June, complete with a brand new Brachiosaurus and two different Jeep Wranglers.

Those are probably the main things everyone was hoping for from this line-up since it was confirmed all the way back in September 2022, and the LEGO Group has delivered to a tee across these five dino-focused sets. You’ll also find a Ford Explorer, the visitor centre and every single one of the 1993 film’s main characters spread throughout these boxes.

Each of these new LEGO Jurassic Park sets will be available to purchase from June 1, 2023, with pre-orders for the biggest of them all – 76961 Visitor Center: T. rex & Raptor Attack – set to go live at today. Scroll down for all the details on the entire wave, but watch where you step…

76957 Velociraptor Escape

Price: £31.99 / $39.99 / €37.99 Pieces: 137 Release date: June 1, 2023

The only 4+ set in the LEGO Jurassic Park 30th anniversary wave, 76957 Velociraptor Escape depicts the moment game warden Robert Muldoon gets mercilessly mutilated by a velociraptor (‘clever girl’). It’s heavy stuff for a set that skews so young, but the LEGO Group has sanitised it a bit by replacing Muldoon’s shredded arm with a hot dog.

76958 Dilophosaurus Ambush

Price: £20.99 / $19.99 / €26.99 Pieces: 211 Release date: June 1, 2023

The first of two sets to include a Jeep Wrangler, 76958 Dilophosaurus Ambush bundles together Dennis Nedry with his old pal, a Dilophosaurus. There’s a fair bit of LEGO here for the money – at least as far as Jurassic sets go – but another minifigure wouldn’t have gone amiss. We have a feeling it’ll be popular just for the Jeep…

76959 Triceratops Research

Price: £46.99 / $49.99 / €52.99 Pieces: 281 Release date: June 1, 2023

Hands up who thought the LEGO Group would ever release a LEGO set based on the line: “That is one big pile of s***.” That’ll be nobody, then. But it’s 2023, and here we are, looking at one big pile of brick-built poop. 76959 Triceratops Research also includes a Ford Explorer that’s ever-so-slightly different to the one in 76956 T. rex Breakout, a dinosaur and some minifigures, but we all know what the real star attraction here is.

76960 Brachiosaurus Discovery

Price: £74.99 / $79.99 / €84.99 Pieces: 512 Release date: June 1, 2023

Marking the introduction of our first-ever Brachiosaurus – and the only brand new dino mould in this entire wave of sets – 76960 Brachiosaurus Discovery captures one of the most magical moments in Jurassic Park, for both its characters and the audience watching along at home. There’s another Jeep to wrangle with, and a huge tree that definitely isn’t just filler, but the dino is the main draw.

76961 Visitor Center: T. rex & Raptor Attack

Price: £114.99 / $129.99 / €129.99 Pieces: 693 Release date: June 1, 2023 (pre-order now)

The biggest set in the LEGO Jurassic Park 30th anniversary wave finally brings us a location dino-fans have been wanting for decades: the visitor centre from the original movie. It’s definitely not an 18+ set as was once rumoured (and then not rumoured), but does build out into a reasonable approximation of the iconic site given the scale and price point. It’s also the only set here to include two dinos, along with a brick-built dino skeleton and more minifigures than you can shake a T. rex limb at.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
