The minifig selection is not as exciting as I was hoping for, especially since they have omitted Gennaro AGAIN. Granted (:tongue:), he is mostly known for his funny death scene, which may factor in, but still. At least Muldoon is likely coming in the Clever Girl set! 

Yup, I think our only shots at getting Gennaro were this wave and last year's T-Rex paddock set. At least this theme isn't going anywhere anytime soon, so maybe we'll get him when they start doing remakes of these sets years down the line.

I love the sound of this wave. Wish they included more new characters tho — I feel like the 50€ set could easily include more than two minifigures — especially considering the builds are yet another Ford Explorer, and a mountain of dinosaur poo :tongue:

The Brachiosaurus set is definitely a must-buy for me.

Hey, at least they make up for that with lots of meme inclusions :laugh_hard: We have „clever girl“ (potentially), „that‘s one big pile of shit“, „shampoo eyes“ Nedry, and maybe more

These sound really good, with the exception of the visitor center, which sounds good, but the scale suggests it will be disappointing. Looking forward to seeing images.

Not sure what to expect from the Visitor Center, but it doesn’t sound that bad :laugh:

It's just the size seems very small to fit in the entrance hall, dining room, and the lab, so none of them will likely have much detail or scale to them, which is a shame as those locations are all very large in the movie. Then again, if you did it to scale, it would be a $500, and we probably don't need ANOTHER one of those right now.

I am not certain but I wonder if they could reuse the rex tail.

I was thinking it could be used as the second part of the tail, if they made it a two-parter. But if the given measurements are accurate, then a tail reuse seems very likely

Maybe it‘s designed to fit or include the control room/kitchen/embryo storage setting from set 75932 Velociraptor Chase?

That would be cool. I wonder if they will give us a baby raptor.

Promobricks has posted a great article with some minor updates to what we already know from yesterday: https://www.promobricks.de/lego-jurassic-world-2023-vorschau/152912/

Sounds like we'll indeed be getting open/closed top variants of the Jeep, and the Ford Explorer will be largely the same as in the diorama set! I bet the whole fleet will look amazing together on display.

The Brachiosaurus can also stand on its hind legs, which I think will look awesome. Plus, looks like we are getting an East Dock sign with Nedry's Jeep set!

It seems Gennaro is confirmed to not be included, which is a bummer, but there's still hope for Muldoon.

I did a size comparison, and the brachiosaurus is as wide and long as the trex but it's almost twice as tall.

So, you're saying that the body and the tail of the Brachio alone are as long as the full T.rex and it would be even longer if the head and neck would be put horizontaly? If that's the case it would definitely be a very reasonable size considering the set's price and that it includes a large tree and Jeep aswell. Honestly, this set sounds like it may be one of the greatest deals for it's price point, lol

Indy's new hair hat combo could look good recoloured for Alan, SpongeBob beat me to the punch on the indy thread but yeah.

Yeah I guess. It's hard to get the pose of a model from 3 measurements I made a paper box with the dimensions of the description to do comparisons with.

"there is also a Brachiosaurus, which consists of large molded parts for the head, neck, tail, body and legs. Care was taken to ensure that the dinosaur's neck and tail can be moved in such a way that it can easily stand on its hind legs, just like in the film."

I hope they just forgot to mention a jaw or the feeding feature will be even more imaginary.

What are those random prices tho — 38€? 27€? 53€?

Maybe it's just a mistake, exclusive to that German website.

It's absolutely lovely to hear that Brachio will be molded entirely instead of those Avatar hybrids; I hope that all the parts will be exclusive tho, because the only logically reusable part would be the Rexy tail, but that would probably look a bit too skinny tbh. Also, I'd rate the Brachio a solid 9/10 if it also had a seperate jaw piece, like the Gallimimus, but, thinking about it realistically, nothing will top it's amazing design from the Lego JW game, unless they'll make it identical to that one ofc, although I may be a bit too picky and overexcited here :grin:

Annnnd, my young JP Henry Wu version prediction for the Visitor Center was correct so I'm pretty surprised about that haha

I was hoping the brachiosaurus's neck would be two pieces or at least be able to turn left and right like in the game. We'll probably have to wait for pictures for that level of analysis.

Yeah it's gonna be a rough one budget-wise. I'm going to try and wait until the end of the year for some sales, since inevitably most of the non-D2C will end up ~20% off at some point :)

So I did some math using the an average human height of 1.75 meters for humans and the height of a jurassic park brachiosaurus at 18 meters. So if the size difference was consistent the brachiosaurus would be 44 bricks and 2 plates tall using a minifigure height at 4 bricks 1 plate.

The dimensions I got from measuring it's dimensions in bricks are 25 bricks tall, 35 bricks long, and 8 bricks wide.

I think there's a decently high chance you're one of the world's biggest Lego Brachiosaurus fans and that rocks

Why thank you. It was hard before now, being the closest we had was the game and the old dinosaur theme.

I'm afraid that you're just going to have to not get all of them. Probably drop the Dilophosaurus Ambush to make it more affordable...

The more we learn about this wave, the more exciting it is. The Brachiosaurus set especially has me extremely excited! I'm very pleasantly surprised it will be fully molded. If I get no other Jurassic set this year, I'm for sure getting that one.
