Name: T-Rex Hunter
Price: €69,99 (got it for €59,99 )
Today I bought my fourth Dino set. This time 5886 T-Rex Hunter. So far I'm very impressed with this line. The dinosaurs are fantastic and even the vehicles are nicely build and cool looking. This set is no exception. Here is my review of it. Enjoy.
First at all, the box. Front, back and side. I added my custom Nathan Drake (PS3 Game Uncharted 1-3) to show the size of the box.
The box contains 5 bags, four numbered and one for the T-Rex.
Two instructions cover the build.

The DSS. I didn't apply the stickers, so please don't miss them on the final build The instructions and the DSS were packed in a bag with cardboard. Safe delivery, good job Lego
Now to the build.
Contents of bag 1.
First the Minifigs. Backprint on both torsos. Faces are only onesided. Both faces have a pretty special expression so their use is a bit limited. At the end the figs a nice and I really like the olive green legs and torso of the pilot. Looks great.
Pieces of interest in bag 1. There are many dark red grille pieces in it and it's only the beginning. There a lot more coming in the other bags.
Next the T-Rex. Great mold, very possable and a great size. I love this piece.
The first vehicle in the set. The small buggy (in-build and complete). Nice litte build.
The trailer (in-build and complete). Nothing special but okay.
The crate contains a spyglass and a camera. The camera is a simple build but looks very great.
The dino carriage. It attached to the studs on the back of the Rex. The arms of this build could never hold a figure this size.
Spare parts of bag 1.
Bag 1 (and special) completed.
Contents of bag 2. I really need a bigger "studio".
Pieces of interest. Some nice parts for snot use here.
The tail and main body. It is very colourful at the inside and you get a taste of how big it will get.
The engines. Good looking and sturdy.
Engines attached. In the following pictures the engines are one stud to high. I fixed it in the last pictures.
Spare parts from bag 2. A few to many I think. I looked through both instructions and I couldn't find the step where the additional round 1x1 studs and the blue pins go. If anyone can help, please tell me.
Contents from bag 3.
Pieces of interest. 6 yellow 2x4 tiles. Nice.
Main landing gear. Sturdy build.
The cockpit. Very heavy and bulky. It gives the chooper a nice look.
Attached to the body.
Spare parts from bag 3. Nothing special.
Up to the last bag and it contents.
The cockpit gets finished.
The rotorblades in-build and attached to the final set.
The complete set. Very hard to photograph, it's very big.
You got a nice Chopper to swoosh around and a great dino to catch. A lot of possible play sessions ahead.
Nice torsos, faces and I love the olive green pants.
The Rex is fantastic, very fun to play with. The set itself contains a lot of useful parts in bright colours, different tiles, a whole bunch of dark red 1x2 grilles and more. Nice selection.
The actual price of €70 may be a bit high at first sight, but I think it's a good value you get. If you can purchase it for a lower price I absolutely recommend this set.
I hope you enjoyed the review. For everybody who looked through a little bonus picture of a WIP diorama.
