Jurassic World 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

Recommended Posts

Breaking discussion, but I was browsing ebay and guffawed at the bloated prices for the 2015 Indominus Rex set. With the new 2020 Netflix series taking place during the events of the first Jurassic World, I hope the I-Rex figure will make a return next year.

My biggest take away from LEGO at this point is them kicking to the curb LEGO ideas, this is the second set which they practically pulled an official excuse in regards to make it ok to release this set even though another set similar to this WITH THE FORD EXPLORER was approved to 10,000 and denied.

I don’t understand how everyone jumps to “they stole it from the lego ideas contributor”.  It’s an IP they already have, I’m sure they’ve sketched out every major piece they could do in lego. If it was an IP they didn’t already have rights to it would actually be suspicious.

While this D2C isn’t what I wanted for a big JP set and, I believe, a wasted opportunity, it still is a cool set. I have trouble paying $250 for it, but if somehow I find it at a discount (which isn't likely) then I may have to pick it up simply because it’s a set that I can see myself regretting not getting 5-7 years from now. Hopefully we will get more JP sets in the future that include more Dino molds and iconic scenes and vehicles. To me this is a good set but not a good Jurassic Park set. I’m kind of torn. I may end up caving at some point but we’ll see.

And what they said makes perfect sense, when you’re going off the same source material there will be overlaps. Plus, didn’t they say this was in the works since before that Ideas set? Or did I read incorrectly? I believe the T-Rex was going to be a Creator set but the JP team took it since it wasn’t being used and modified it to be from JP

The original T-Rex model was just something a Creator designer build for fun and he put it in his workspace for a couple years. The JP team saw it and saw the potential the model had as a set

I don’t know where you’re living, but I don’t get any discounts like that anywhere near me. The best discount I could hope for is 15% and NEVER on D2C sets. And no disrespect intended, but I think my previous comment was perfectly clear, the discussion in general is about this set and price being a factor in not getting it.

Most discounts are online anyway. Amazon almost always has sets on 20% off after a month or so of release.

and @KevinMD was right, I was referring to Lego in general. D2Cs are almost never on discount, but I was referring to Lego as a hobby, as that was the context of the comment I was originally replying to

the biggest example is the ecto 1, when that was approved from LEGO, they got their ip, not long after they acquired their license, another firehouse won 10,000, but LEGO declined it, next thing you know the d2c gets released, stating the same ideas logic, read the comments from a lot of sets that make 10,000 votes for stating things like the set is not possible etc, especially from the previous Jurassic park sets that reached the 10,000, yeah sure a lot of ideas “overlap” but lego will not give credit to the main guys who had it. 

i am not a disgruntled LEGO ideas creator at all, but it makes sense for a business to take ideas from consumers and credit it as their own, in the end though we all want a bunch of sets from ideas, but they kind of dropped the ball with this one, we all know well LEGO has been compartmentalizing sets recently, we will get our Jeep/explorer in a future set watch, toy companies have been doing this for a while, buuuuttt I do feel the original ideas set that won, was waaay better designed than this one imho, i would only buy it for the minifigures than anything, that sad to say fit better with the 40 dollar raptor escape from the 1992 movie

It’s very unlikely they’ll include the cars. If they had licensing issues with the car manufacturers for the D2C, best not get our hopes up for other sets in the near future. 

Considering there’s no Jurassic World film coming soon, I’m guessing it’ll be more Legend of Isla Nublar stuff. Fine by me, those sets are quite fun and - here’s the best bit - actually include zoo/themepark related builds! 

Personally, I got my fingers crossed for another new dino. When are you gonna give us that brachiosaurus, LEGO? Or the stegosaurus? :moar:

If it's not movie-based I'm most likely not going to like it. I really wasn't a fan of the Legend of Isla Nublar line

Aren't they supposed to be based on the upcoming Netflix animated series for JW?

Could be, but we have never heard something that would suggest this

I think this theme is gonna stick around for a while thankfully. If the 4 sets are for winter 2020, then they’ll probably be based on the Lego series/movie. But I could easily see us getting another wave later in the year to coincide with the release of the Netflix series. Hopefully there will be a new Indominus in it. And then in 2021 we should get a wave for the third movie

I’m glad to see that they’re making this theme longer lived. I like the Legend of Isla Nublar wave for the awesome new dinosaurs and the theme park builds, although everything else (including most of the figures) isn’t that impressive to me. I’d be fine with more sets based on Legend of Isla Nublar as long as we get some new dinosaurs and hopefully some new theme park builds!
