76940 T. rex Dinosaur Fossil Exhibition allows kids to ‘role-play as palaeontologists’ (according to the marketing copy) with – as the name suggests – a fossilised version of a T. rex skeleton. Cast predominantly in tan, it feels like a smaller and more juniorised version of the larger collections of bones found in 2019’s LEGO Ideas set.
It’s also just one of four sets anchored around animated Netflix series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, the third season of which has just arrived on the streaming platform. The other three revisit familiar dinos in a Stygimoloch, Carnotaurus and Baryonyx – but while there are no new moulds, all three beasts come in brand new colours.
Check out all of the newly-revealed Jurassic World sets below. They’ll be available to order at LEGO.com from September 1.

- 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.
