Has anyone heard any news about this supposed set?

    I seem to recall some minifigure leaks awhile back but some were attached to the regular Lego wave. (maybe all of them were?). Surely it will have a gate and a jeep. If not they are doing it wrong.

    There's a chance this thread might need to be shrouded in secrecy like the previous Stranger Things ones. At least until something is officially confirmed or revealed. However unlike Stranger Things the leaks are still minimal right now. There's evidence for it, but not very much of it

    ...it needs a Brachiosaurus in it.

    75936 is the set number (that’s what Brickset has listed)
  • jmeninnojmeninno The Batcave (MA)Member Posts: 731
    Methinks that there will be minifigs, dinosaurs, and Lego bricks in the set.  Likely some stickers and instruction manual(s), too.  #notwrong

    ^ Is that true? If so, I'm seriously disappointed. I was expecting all printed parts and brick-built dinos that somehow manage to reach the level of detail as specialised parts would. /s

    You get a vial of liquid, a syringe and few Lego eggs that you inject.

    What money there is a helicopter in this set? If it's the visitors centre they could do it in a Betrayal at Cloud City style and there is a landing pad, with Ingen chopper.

    If it's anything JP1 I'm buying it. I remember seeing JP1 at the movies back in the day. Was great, saw alot of the seat in front of me as it scared the living hell out of me.

    Based off the minifigures that have leaked, it’s based on the original.

    I'm hoping for a reasonably-sized facade of the Visitor's Center, a small section of break-away fence, a T-Rex, an automated tour vehicle, and the big gate. Maybe a brick-built collapsing T-Rex skeleton play feature. It would also be cool to get the raptor crate from the opening scene.

    And then rounding out the main cast with minifigs for Nedry, open-shirt Ian, Hammond, Muldoon, Donald, and Mr. Arnold. Maybe a generic worker too.

    I'm over T-Rexs to be honest. If they are doing a DTC set, it needs to have a new dino mould or two. Sauropod and stegosaurus would put me over the moon.

    @pharmajod While I would agree, Jurassic Park 1 did not feature any Stegosaurus scenes. What I would like to see is something similar to Betrayal at Cloud City for the Visitor's Center with an original colour version of the Jurassic Park Jeep and Tour Vehicle, two Gallimimus, one Brachiosaur, a Triceratops to represent the sick Trike scene, the Velociraptor attack on Ellie at the power bunker or the Raptor Pen itself with at least one more JP1 Raptor, and the following characters:

    John Hammond, JP1 Doctor Henry Wu, Robert Muldoon, Donald Genaro, Dennis Nedry, Ray Arnold, Jophry (The Raise the Gate Guy), Doctor Harding (Sick Trike Vet), Alexis Murphy with Medium Sized Legs to represent a more accurate height, perhaps with all of the mud splotches and stuff on her outfit from after surviving the park, Jurassic Park Scientist, Jurassic Park Security Guard x2, Jurassic Park Helicopter Pilot, Ian Malcom, Jurassic Park the Game Jess Harding, Nima, Billy, Doctor Sorkin and the others would be interesting too, but I doubt they have the license to use those characters so more InGen Employees would be nice.

    Does anyone know if there's a licensing issue with Ford and/or Chrysler/Jeep that's preventing the automated Explorer or the Wrangler?

    ^ I wouldnt think so since Speed Champions has both automakers, not to mention the new Creator Mustang, but there is always that possibility I suppose.

    There may not be the same level of demand for those sets to justify the licensing fees and/or production.  Oftentimes, automakers are touchy about old versions of their vehicles (not considered 'classic') being produced for a new market or consumer.  They want you hooked on the latest and greatest, not an early '90's throwback.

    I suppose the Jeepy-ish vehicle in the first wave of JW sets complicates the discussion.  It looks like a Jeep, but is clearly not one.

    ^^ Admittedly, I'm not a massive super-fan but I have seen all the movies (and happen to be playing through the LEGO game at the moment), but I actually had to look up some of those characters!  I guess if you have to use brackets to explain who someone is, you're probably not going to see them in a set - at least not as a named character :)

    Cloud city-like Visitor Centre with 2 vehicles, 5 or 6 dinos + raptor pen and/or power bunker and all those minifigs would cost a ridiculous amount of money; probably double what the T-Rex/Gate costs and I'm not sure who would actually buy it.

    I don't pretend to know how much it would have cost, but I honestly was just speculating based on what I personally would prefer.


    What has turned out to be offered is just all around weaker in comparison to at least a Visitor's Center, I will more than likely buy it because of my desire to own all LEGO JP/JW based items, but I feel that it had so much potential and it has not lived up to said potential, not by a long shot.

    Unlike Speed Champions, it's also a case where the licensing fees are compounded—you're paying for BOTH the Jurassic Park/World license and the automotive manufacturer's license. And especially for a larger-scale model targeted at discerning adults, it's less feasible to just fudge the details so that it doesn't explicitly represent the authentic car model from the movies (something the smaller, kid-targeted sets more frequently rely on).

    That said, I'm eagerly anticipating seeing somebody MOC a Jurassic Park vehicle to scale with this new set. Fans are resourceful and the tire tread size and spacing seems fairly consistent with a Creator Expert-scale vehicle, so I'm sure somebody's already started conceptualizing one.

    Honestly, I think the real problem with making the Explorer has nothing to do with the licensing and everything to do with that particular shade of green it is. It can't be easy getting that shade and detailing down on LEGO bricks especially since it might require dual-molding to capture the Jungle Camo detailing perfectly without relying too heavily on stickers.

    Stickers!!!!

    I doubt they'd care too much about accurate colours and just go with one of their current greens - I would image lime (BL name) with some dark red blobs printed on it.

    Of course it would be nice if the printed parts, but they'd probably print stickers instead.

    I did say I would buy it if it was JP1 based. Now, I dunno. I was hoping for something like the Visitors Centre. I like it, but I'm in no rush to get it and if I miss out I won't be too fussed. The gate and the Rex look nice but not what I was expecting.
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,426
    I guess I'll post my opinion on the set now that I've seen it. Let me start off by saying that I'm not a fan of the JW/JP sets, just my personal taste. I don't hate them either, just neutral on them. I am confused by the box art because the box says JW but the gate says JP. Why? 

    I can see peoples disappointment at not having a Jeep or Explorer included but I also think, while the gate is iconic to the movie, besides building it there's really no use for it after that. The minifigs look good so it's got that going for it. I do like the brick built dinosaur though. If it goes on sale at one of the large retailers I'd buy it just for the parts to price ratio, which is pretty good now. I didn't bother reading all of the comments on the main site but I didn't read about anyone getting overly nasty with each other so I'm kind of surprised the comments were shut down. I'm also surprised no one has mentioned the cool color brick separator. I have far far far too many of them but at least it's a different color. 
  • SeanTheCollectorSeanTheCollector BirminghamMember Posts: 763
    I love JP/JW sets and I'm delighted that they will be releasing this set. I would also like a Visitors Centre with a Jeep. However, there is nothing stopping them doing that in the future! This set looks like a fantastic display piece and the large gate definitely adds to that. The little scenes at the back of the gate just add a bit of fun during the build which could otherwise get a bit boring. The £220 price tag in the UK also seems reasonable for the parts count. It's certainly better value than the £215 you will need to spend for the 4 new Legend of Isla Nublar sets that came out this year.
    I will definitely be ordering this set as soon as it's released. I'm just hopying they will add an interesting JW freebie for early purchases. Pretty please! :-)

    ^^I didn't even notice the brick separator. Was a definite day 1 purchase before, but now I'm not going to get it because my orange brick separator collection is now useless .  Well done TLG you've ruined LEGO ;)

    I'm confused, the teal brick separator have been released in more than 20 sets so far...

    ^ I know it's not new in this set but, of the sets that it is in I own very few of and of those I haven't built any of those sets. So to me it is new because I haven't actually seen one.

    Yeah, where's our edgy Batman Black Brick Separator? We totally need one of those so LEGO Batman can pop it out of his utility belt and start taking down Joker's Funhouse.

    I heard that brick separators are deliberately produced in bright, unusual colours so they can be easily spotted in the brick pile by children before the actual build commences. I think the teal one was made for sets that include a lot of yellow/orange parts, in which the traditional orange would get lost (though it does seem to be included in sets that could use the orange one now).

    Sure, why not. And distribute them randomly in all kinds of different sets.

    Better yet, put it in collectable brick separators series one. Each blind bag contains one brick separator, 16 different colors, collect them all.

    The Green one in #10233 Horizon Express was VERY easy to find in that big pile of orange bricks...

    I haven't read everything related to this set, but have seen lot's of discussion about various perceived "issues" with this set.  For those that haven't seen it yet, a review on Brother's Brick came out this morning that also includes interview with Mark Stafford.  No doubt Lego has heard the rumbles.  This review/interview seems to cover and summarize the various perceived "issues" from the AFOL community to this point.


    I understand the points of view all around actually.  In the end, I think it's a pretty cool set.  The dino I feel is outstanding.  Will I buy it?  Probably not, only because my budget can go only so far and there are far too many Lego items competing for my dollars.  As much as I like this one, there are many others I'd personally rather have first.

    I read through that review earlier today and I really appreciated it! I think they did a great job with both the review and the interview in addressing many of the complaints people have come up with.

    For myself however though, I think I've pretty much completely decided to skip the set. As beautiful as the T-Rex model is, I just don't think it'll "fit" for me. The thing I'm saddest about missing out on is the minifigs.
