Brickshow actually made a video about the new sets, that I even posted about in the JWFK Toys thread.

We ran an article expanding on the details The Brick Show initially provided here: http://jurassicoutpost.com/full-expanded-descriptions-every-lego-jurassic-world-fallen-kingdom-set-potential-spoilers/

The Carnotaurus is a let down, it's a repainted body of the Indominus and looks really goofy. The Stygimoloch looks nice.

Sounds pretty good, though maybe a bit too many similarities with the previous JW line. I'm very intrigued about the new figures, even if the Carno may be a letdown.

Okay, so by the time I finish my UCS Millennium Falcon, Saturn V and Classic Batcave, I can immediately proceed with JW 2 Lego sets. :)

Didn't the T-Rex and Indominus from the JW sets share the same body already?

Their bodies are the same size, the Indominus just has spikes while the T-Rex doesn't.

Doesn't look bad. I mean, for what Lego figures are in general.

I wanted an accurate Carnotaurus Lego figure, but I'll settle in for a OS Bull.

I actually expected it to look worse, it actually doesn't look that bad, I mean sure it definetly looks nothing like the one in the trailer, but it's still not bad at all.

While Iím a bit disappointed about the size, that looks pretty good for a Lego figure.

And again Iím going to express my bafflement at why Lego hasnít reused the Triceratops figure. They could even create a new head and make a Pachyrhinosaurus while theyíre at it.

I'll definitely be getting the Carnotaurus set, and the Stygimoloch(I consider it a sub-adult Pachycephalosaurus) set as well, and possibly the Indoraptor set. I only get the sets that have new dinosaurs in them, with the JW sets I only got the Indominus set and the Dilophosaurus set.
I am the Dinosaur King!

What LEGO needed to do was create a new mid-size Dino mold.. they could have used the body and legs interchangeably with new heads an arms for dinos like Carnotaurus, Allosaurus, and Baryonyx.

Well, Lego has always been about reusing parts whenever they can; it is kind of their whole theme, after all. And given that JWFK is small potatoes compared to their Star Wars and DC/Marvel Super Heroes properties, I guess it simply wasn't in their budget to create a new mid-size mould. But I certainly agree with you that it would have been great. I like your renditions of Allosaurus and Baryonyx.

It's nice they've chosen the Carnotaurus as the big boy for this series, if I were a Lego collector I wouldn't mind having it in the same size of the T-Rex and Indominus from the older sets.

Well, May will get here before we know it. Official images may also pop up next month after the New York Toy Fair. In the mean time, I support our adminís decision.

On a slightly different note, congratulations, Suspsy, for hitting and passing the 4000 post plateau. I can hardly imagine reaching that point. Then again, one post at a time, of course. Thank you for the tremendous contribution that you have made to this community. Your reviews are a regular "happening" that I always look forward to with anticipation.

No pictures for now please, unless they're official, but otherwise feel free to discuss (I know, that's difficult without pics, but that's the way it is). C:-)

First official pictures have been released:
http://news.toyark.com/2018/01/30/jurassic-world-lego-set-details-official-hd-images-284189
Seems to encourage kids ( of all ages? ) to make their own hybrids.
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no
