    Jurassic World 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Stegosaurus I’d say is very likely because of the way the ankylosaurus is built. Out of pure speculation, I think Spinosaurus is likely in the dominion wave, and it’d be weird to me if they never made a Mosasaurus the entire time there were JW movies in theaters. After some criticism of 75936 a designer told us a visitor center set was never considered, and that they didn’t include an explorer with that set partly out of license issues. I’m guessing they’re trying to see how long they can succeed with this license without releasing those two vehicles, and they really can as long as they bring in new dinosaurs. There is a prototype of the 2015 dilophosaurus set that showed they considered a classic JP Jeep until they went with the blue and white one. I think the Indominus vs Ankylosaurus set is also a must have, its very much what an authentic Jurassic World set should look like.

    Jurassic World: Lockwood Manor MOD

    Thank you very much! I don’t blame you, i knew the dimetrodon or the little exhibits would be the standouts Thanks a lot! I’m glad you think that, I was hoping for a kind of atmospheric feel to it
  4. For over a year I’ve been modifying set 75930: Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate, and I’ve finally finished it up. I started by completely removing all of the lab parts in the set. I wanted the place to be more accurate to the movie and feel way more like a mansion. Maisie in front of the Agujaceratops skull. The exterior with masonry bricks, a few new windows, a new doorway, and slopes on the roof. While the movie has lion statues, classic baby T. Rex statues take their place here. “Ms. Dearing, you’re early!” Interior overview Lego’s goblets of plants by the entrance were accurately gold, but unfortunately the real pot piece isn’t available in gold as of now. The right and left sides now connect to other rooms on the bottom floor. Sir Benjamin and the Dimetrodon When the chameleon was made in teal was when I barely realized the piece could be used for a Dimetrodon. I wondered if the rubber mohawk piece could be bent into shape and placed on it without glue or such, but in the end I had to cheat by cutting off a bit of it and using some blu-tack to keep the two attached. Iris and the Velociraptor This diorama came first and is what pushed me to get a Dimetrodon for the other diorama somehow. For both it took some effort to use a stick to move and click them in place between the wall and glass panels. Different angles Lounge area, at least one person who lives here has to like tea. Maisie’s room and the Library I debated turning that whole third floor into either Maisie’s room or Mills’ office, but her room had the door and there were enough unique decor ideas that ended up being the telescope, a nightlight, and a green classic T. Rex as a toy. I’m pretty proud of how the center of the middle floor turned out. I used the brown and black furniture to try to cover up as much of the tan wall as possible. The glass vases of plants worked out great. There’s no other piece like that landscape tile so I was very happy that it exists, and it ended up being an unintentionally accurate decoration upon looking at set pictures from the movie’s production designer Andy Nicholson. The ship in a bottle isn't present in the movie but it’s a reference to how there are docks close to the estate. That table is supposed to be the one found in Mill’s office that electronically displayed Isla Nublar and profiles of different dinosaur species. I didn’t think there was any way to represent that, but some friends gave me the idea to use a sticker from the Dilophosaurus outpost set, so that will be something to use eventually. The Indoraptor may be too big, but Blue can somewhat fit through that door and look like she opened it. Mills’ Office Retained that idea of a table and umbrella holder and gave his space a computer with a sticker from 75917: Raptor Rampage. I'll probably replace that map with the one of Isla Nublar printed on it eventually. I used the portraits of Thomas and Martha Wayne from the 1960s Batman set for both hallways. It would’ve been great if they officially had one for John Hammond. The new transparent piece from the DC collectible minifigure series allowed for that ammonite fossil to be displayed accurately. A simple bust build and a drawer with explorer items on top. Just a look at how the hallways now connect the entire bottom floor together. Eli Mills, Sir Benjamin Lockwood, Iris Carroll, and Claire Dearing. Thanks for looking!

    Jurassic World 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    As much as I’d really love some lost world sets, I think it’s the idea that there’ll be such a huge cast of characters that it’ll be unlikely Owen and Claire will be as abundant as they were in JWFK sets. Completely new variants of characters we’ve gotten before are pretty exciting, since outside of Owen, Claire, and Wu, we’ve only gotten some for Malcolm and Masrani. The Mitchell bros and Hoskins were more like remakes of their 2015 figures. If nothing else at least they’d (hopefully) be more opportunities for a variety of new flesh civilian faces and torsos. I doubt Owen is wearing a vest this time, Dodgson and Lowery would be new characters we’ve never had before, Barry hasn’t been seen since 2015, and new versions of Alan, Ellie, and Ian will be great to have.

    Bandolier Owen isn’t even in the show, personally it reminds me of the way Kenner would outfit their JP characters. Gray shirt Owen is in the LoIN show, Bricktober version is from fallen kingdom during the baby raptor videos: https://jurassicvault.com/displayimage.php?pid=3537&fullsize=1

    I liked the comparison between the old and new figures and pieces, and they’re my thoughts exactly. I was gonna complain Gray’s displeased look wasn’t fitting but then you brought up this is exactly the part where he’s tired of Zach staring at girls. Old Gray is also preferable to me since its possible to give him short sleeves, new torso I think would be fitting for a purist JP3 Alan Grant. Claire and Josh look so good, just wish the latter used the Dustin cap in brown. Any more praise would just be me repeating myself and everyone else, it’s just overall such a great set, the best one the theme’s ever made so far I’d say.

    Great review, I agree about the control room look of it and I’m glad you gave a sense of how a minifig would look on the baby trike, I’ve been wanting to see it with a saddle and Lex on it. Wu’s new scared expression will be very useful but I wish Owen would’ve gotten a new expression too, nothing wrong at all with the head he has now but we we’ve seen it so many times. He needs a scared or panicked face, he gets just as terrified as everyone else in these movies.

    I’m very happy with this wave. The entirety of the gyrosphere set is accurate (well except Owen), the lab set is very good with some nice details like the Jurassic Park robot arm and the amber mosquito block. The gallimimus is accurate and that’s all I was hoping for from that set but I don’t think anyone was expecting it to reuse the young dilophosaur jaw, they could’ve easily not done that.

    Originally saw it on instagram, but I found it on stonewars by googling 75942 Jagd auf Blue. Hunt for Blue, looks like the info’s been out since February 6.

    Theres also now a German list of set names with Blue in the title of the 4+ set. If that’s right i hope she’s gray like her new baby figure this time.

    Jurassic World 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I can’t wait to see how the adult Ankylosaurus looks, cause I’m loving these babies. Just the herbivore presence after all these years gives me hope an apatosaurus or brachiosaurus is next. Dastan head works pretty good especially on the Joachim low torso here. https://www.flickr.com/photos/143239274@N03/49507102233/in/dateposted-public/ Maybe the old Owen head for a less rare option? I’m not sure if that one looked like Pratt in the first place.

    Is there a confirmed number for these? I thought it was 16 but I just want to be sure, since we now have 12 figures revealed so far.

    It looks nice, it reuses the Indoraptor jaw and body. It’s hard to tell if the legs might not have the sickle claws on them. I can live with it having T. rex arms but I wonder if raptor arms would’ve been better.

    The Baryonyx head is proportionate to the Indoraptor body, so a Spinosaurus couldn’t reuse it.
