Lego Dinosaurs 2012

by TerriRexson

There's a new Lego Dinosaurs range for 2012. The range includes dinosaurs and people living at the same time and some of those dinos look scary!

Lego Dino Range

If I had to come up with a top 5 list of things by two boys like, Lego and dinosaurs would be guaranteed a place!

The new Lego Dino 2012 range looks superb. It's aimed at kids aged 5-12 and this is the kind of Lego that you really play with once you've built it. 

The range includes lots of cool dinosaur figures, dinosaur hunter minifigures and vehicles and buildings. There are tranquiliser guns for when those dinosaurs get out of hand and an HQ with big gates. 

For early availability try here: Lego Dino Sets for Christmas 2011

Let's take a look at the Lego Dino 2012 range.

Only $11.99

Lego 5882: Coelophysis and Off-roader

Lego Dino Ambush Attack 5882 is one of the smaller sets in the range. The dinosaur in this set is a Coelophysis. Very cool. Coelophysis was one of the earlier dinosaurs, from the Triassic time period. The other dinosaurs in this range are from the Late Cretaceous, I wonder what his story is?

Scientists think Coelophysis was fast runner, he was a meat-eater and could be up to 3m long. So the off-road vehicle with flick missiles and the tranquiliser gun in this set are probably a very good idea!

The set includes a dinosaur hunter mini-figure who needs to capture the Coelophysis to protect the city. 

Lego Dino Tower Takedown 5883

This Pteranodon is causing havoc and needs to be captured from the Tower using the net shooter. The dinosaur hero minifigure is ready with a tranquiliser gun. There's a jet boat waiting in case he needs to make a quick getaway!

Look how big he is next to the to dinosaur hero minifigures.
