Jurassic World: Dominion just got an explosive teaser trailer, packed with familiar dinosaurs, tons of nostalgia, and an adorable baby velociraptor. As humans and dinosaurs struggle to co-exist together, life somehow needs to find a way in the upcoming movie. Blazing alongside faster than a gallimimus, the tie-in LEGO sets are promising plenty of new moulds and minifigures.
With so many good sets, Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans, is picking out the best roar-some details…
It’s a baby!
Blue will become a mum to an adorable baby raptor, and from the trailer it looks like her protective instincts are kicking in. Although not named in the trailer, 76946 Blue & Beta Velociraptor Capture gives it away. Beta’s printing is absolutely fabulous, including the similar striped markings to Blue and piercing yellow eyes.
It’s no wonder the dinosaurs are always escaping when the LEGO designers get to make the fences. It wouldn’t be a Jurassic World set without an escape of some kind! The fence, if it can even be called that, in 76944 T. Rex Dinosaur Breakout is made from only two slim tubing elements. However, the 4+ set is a great way to get the green and dark red T. Rex for a decent price.
The gang’s back together
76951 Pyroraptor & Dilophosaurus Transport is bringing some of the original Jurassic Park gang back – Dr Grant must be grabbing ice cream somewhere. Ian Malcom’s minifigure looks very good (and very tanned), sporting his signature open shirt, while Ellie Sattler looks like she’d rather not be dealing with raptors again.

While driving over the dusty plains of the American south-west, the characters unfortunately surprise a very angry Triceratops in the final parts of the trailer. In typical LEGO style, this scarier scene has been lightened with a touch of humour in 76950 Triceratops Pickup Truck Ambush, with Claire trying to tempt the dinosaur with a carrot.
Where it all began
Central to the plot of the original movie and even carried around on the top of a walking cane, mosquitos in amber are an iconic element of the Jurassic Park franchise. Who doesn’t remember a cartoon DNA explaining how it all worked? One makes a cameo in 76945 Atrociraptor Dinosaur: Bike Chase and looks to be printed onto a transparent orange 1×1 brick.
Owen and Claire are attacked mid-air by a giant pterodactyl-like something in the trailer and 76947 Quetzalcoatlus Plane Ambush names the perpetrator. Good luck pronouncing it! It is a real type of pterosaur though, which existed in the Cretaceous period in North America and had a whopping 39 foot (12 metre) wingspan.
Those are some of the details to love in this first wave of Jurassic World: Dominion sets, but there are sure to be more to find when they’re released. Remember to tag Blocks on any of our social media channels when you’re out LEGO shopping – we love to see what dinos are in your carts!
