New Pieces

All the dinosaurs are made of elements with entirely-new moulds. The tranquilizer guns are new moulds similar to the Star Wars rifles but with a clip to hold a syringe in place of a fixed scope. Several new decorations are introduced for the minifigures' faces and torsos, and the sets feature an unusually large proportion of uniquely-printed pieces for things such as targeting computers. New lime-green syringe pieces have also been introduced.

Notes

  • In the November/December 2011 issue of LEGO Club Magazines, it was revealed Commander Hypaxxus-8 had unleashed the dinos as a fallback plan for world domination after his ultimate takeover had failed and his troops were forced to retreat. However, in the game Dino Outbreak, the dinosaurs appeared from an ancient monument acting as a portal into the past.
  • It seems that the humans in the theme, in contrast to the previous conflict-oriented Dino Attack theme released in 2005, aim to capture the dinosaurs in a humane way as opposed to attempting to kill them. For example, it appears that all of the guns and missiles use tranquilizers as opposed to deadlier forms of ammunition. This would explain the syringes on the rifles.
  • Although the sets were scheduled to come out in 2012 they became available at Toy's R Us and LEGO stores in early November 2011.
  • The theme's main colour scheme is Yellow.
  • Two online games were released, one of which takes a fantastical approach to dinosaurs, and one which takes a more realist, contemporary approach:
    • Dino Outbreak was released at the beginning of 2012, and is a platform game where the player guides a member of the team who is attempting to return the dinosaurs to the past, which the minifigure accidentally released them from.
    • Archeological Dig was released later in the year, and has the player dig up fossilized dinosaur remains with a small assortment of paleontological tools. These parts can later be assembled by the player in a museum.
  • The general plot bears some resemblance to the Jurassic Park film franchise, particularly the film The Lost World: Jurassic Park, which also features humans encountering "resurrected" dinosaurs in their natural habitat.
