The LEGO Jurassic World Dominion sets will be debuting very soon – and ahead of their release on the 17th of April, LEGO were kind enough to send me a couple of sets to review on Jurassic Collectables.
The main set I got my hands on is LEGO Quetzalcoatlus Plane Ambush – a set which will retail for around £40 and $40, and which includes a brand-new mold for the LEGO line in the form of the giant Quetzalcoatlus. I must admit I was very excited when this set was initially revealed, as I never expected LEGO to make a brand-new sculpt for the Quetz. The set itself feels like it has been pulled from the first trailer for Jurassic World Dominion – encapsulating one of the most climatic moments from the trailer in building brick format.
The build for Kayla’s Plane is fantastic – featuring a grounded build which captures the appearance of the plane whilst also scaling it down to be more achievable within a LEGO format. I like the inclusion of the nose art on this plane, and I also think it’s cool that there is so much interior space packed into this vehicle – providing plenty of play space inside. I also love the Quetz here – with a great colour scheme and a strong sculpt which contrasts itself well when compared to the plane itself, creating a real sense of scale which captures the imposing appearance of this Pterosaur in the trailer.
The set also includes minifigures of Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Kayla Watts. Owen is a repackage from sets which have been released previously, but Claire gets a brand-new appearance here which isn’t too dis-similar to other figures we have seen released of this character. Kayla gets a brand-new torso print which is packed full of detail but the hair piece isn’t quite perfect here – so this is something which I may replace with another element from my own collection.
This is a fantastic set which perfectly immortalizes one of my favorite moments from the Dominion trailer. Having this in hand gets me very excited for the upcoming film – and for the rest of the sets which release later this month.
