The set was purchased about 2 weeks ago. Just now have time to do it.
The box was accidentally crushed, so it was thrown out.

The First Overview

Posted Image


New parts/pieces of interest.

Posted Image


This is a pretty nice part. And I finally have it!  :laugh:

Posted Image



Minifigure

Posted Image


I just love his second face! It would have looked perfect on the "HazMat guy".

Posted Image


Even though the original gun looks brutal, I would like to stick to BrickArms.

Posted Image

The Vehicle ("OffRoader")

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

The weapon is attached to the back.

Posted Image

Our guy look pretty cool in there!  :blush:

Posted Image

Not exactly sure what are those for, I guess for dinosaur not to try to attack him twice.  :devil:

Posted Image

The thermometer controls it.

Posted Image

The "bush"  :wacko:

Posted Image

Here comes my favorite part...

The Dinosaur!!

He's not the first one in my collection, because I have the black-and-blue dinosaur from Dino 2010/Dino Attack (not exactly sure from which one)

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

A solid plastic stud on the back.

Posted Image

In the combat.

Posted Image

And everything together. Again.

Posted Image

Dino looks just fine!  :wub:

Posted Image

The spare parts.

Posted Image

Here's what we get:

Design 7/10 The construction is pretty simple, comparing to Dino 2010 sets, but it's strong too.
Parts 8/10 TLC could have chosen better parts for the offroader, it looks kind of "rough", but a dinosaur brings the score back up.
Figs 9/10 Minifigure is very nice, two face prints, back print, a gun. Nice and neat.
Build 8/10 It is simple, anyone can do it.
Playability 10/10 This set is very playable, the construction is strong, and there are enough thing to play with.

And the score is 42/50. Not bad for a $11.99 set.

Thanks for reading,
Alex.

Catching up on the stuff we opened at christmas. This is a great little introduction to the theme. Compact vehicle, robustly built and lots of detail. The Ceophyllis(sp?) is very well printed and just tall enough to freak out the Dino guy in his car  :laugh:

Maybe a pound or so cheaper and I would give this set full marks.

Just a quick question to those who already own this set; Are the Dino's hands and legs movable or are they dead fixed?

I've been torn with the dino sets. One moment I want them, the next I put them on the backburner for other themes. Good review overall. It gives us a good indication what to expect. As far as price, I am a fan of cheaper sets and still getting some good pieces. The dinosaur does look good and might make the set worthwhile for me.

Keep up the good reviews.

Love the new DINO theme...only wish they would produce more stationary sets, i.e. facilities as opposed to being so vehicle based.
