Hello guys! Today I gonna review the biggest Dino 2012 set 5887. This is my first English review and sorry for my English, It is not my first language. So, let's start!

Box

Box is actually very big, bigger than 7879.

0_9e45a_28ddabc4_L.jpg0_9e390_2caacdd3_L.jpg

Look at this minifigs!! So beautiful faces! And this guy in white gonna be my favorite! (Sorry for damaged piece)

0_9e391_752a78bb_L.jpg0_9e393_887e0616_L.jpg0_9e392_751af031_L.jpg

And here only one feeling. "I WANNA CREATE SOMETHING!!!!"

0_9e394_ae8e7e2d_L.jpg

But there is one bad thing. One of the stickers dissapeared somewhere. (I found it in the end, in the box)

Nice review, lots of pictures showing all the details. It's weird that your intstructions didn't come in the plastic bag, mine did? I really like the set, but it's lacking in size a lot. It should have a few cages to house the raptor in or something. I know there can't be everything, though.

Superb set and review, the instructions and stickers seem to be getting put in a cardboard backed bag quite inconsistently, it's very annoying, can't count the amount of times that I've had to request additional sticker sheets to replace the bent and peeled of in the box ones :( I think the T-Rex trapper had them bagged but not my Triceratops set. :/

Thanks for the pic heavy review! I feel like I own the set I've seen so many details.

I will more than likely pass on this set, but it is nice having some new molds and new printed figures. I like the new yellow corner wall pieces, but I don't know what I'd use them for other than this set/color scheme.

Keep up the good reviews.

Thanks for this review 'ZoomZoom', I'm wondering when 'Peppermint_M' will use that female torso for her female heroes eh ? :devil:

Actually I'm impressed, the vehicles are just okay, but the enclosure is a solid build and a great looking play set...might I say again 'Terra Nova' inspired eh ? :wink:

I might twist my arm for just this big set later in the year, once I have got all the city stuff I want and SH for my son. :wink:

Nice review! :classic::sweet:

I always liked this set, but $100 is a big investment. I'll probably pick it up if it gets down to $50...

Really nice review!

Bought this set for my eldest son the other day as we've just turned his room into a dinosaur room with hanging vines, dinosaurs and lots of plant life and wall stickers so it fitted in nicely.

I loved the set. I mainly buy licensed sets so I was not sure on this one initially but I am now a convert. just a shame there won't be anymore for a while.

Nice review and good pictures! I like the dinosaurs, they are better than the previous series IMO

Finally picked up this set on sale last week. I absolutely love it! The base is fantastic with tons of cool features, the two vehicles are fun (I don't get the mini-copter hate), the minifigures are nifty (although I wish there was more than just one girl in the line), and the dinosaurs are simply awesome! If only I'd had a set like this when I was a kid! As it stands, I keep the Tyrannosaurus rex here on my desk with me to menace my Minifigures collection.

Did anyone else have a sticker left over when they finished this set? I just finished building it with my son and after looking through all three booklets twice I can't find where I'm supposed to place one particular large "D" sticker.

I have mixed feelings about the finished HQ itself but my son loves it. The two larger dinosaurs are great though with plenty of articulation and the T-Rex is awesome for it's size alone (looking forward to see how it compares to a Rancor...).
