Your first look at 2017 Creator sets

Mighty Dinosaurs

Mighty Dinosaurs

©2017 LEGO Group

LEGO has uploaded images of some eighteen 2017 sets this morning, in preparation for them being available at shop.LEGO.com at the end of the month, in North America, at least.

Among them are five Creator sets and three Juniors City sets that we had not seen pictures of until now.

I am a big fan of Creator animals, particularly dinosaurs, so I look forward to picking up 31058 Mighty Dinosaurs which, as you can see from the 'more images' tab on its set details page, builds this carnivore, a pterosaur and a Triceratops. The other sets are not doing much for me, though...

The Junior sets seem to be rehashed quite a bit, could they not come up with something new?

Where are pictures of the townhouse?

Give LEGO time... I suspect they are uploading more today. I'll check again later.

Patience is a virtue, I know. Thanks Huw.

That dino set is really good. The rest seem a bit unexciting. They're all recycled ideas.
Disappointed though that that's two dragsters in next year's line-up and neither of them seem to have pull-back-and-go motors. I did just get the 42033 Record Breaker as part of a 3-for-2 and it's a lovely model with a great turn of speed.

Mighty Dinosaurs X3 are a must for me. Probably a Lego Shop exclusive :/

I agree it's a rehash, but the Juniors Large Construction Site is a nice set for its target audience and folks that can appreciate Juniors sets.

Aw was hoping for something like the cat/ dog/ monkey we ace had recently. The dinos are still cool tho...maybe I can edit them and give them comical cute eyes to fit the other animals I have!

Hmmm....That orange airplane comes apart in a modular fashion for some reason. But it's not clear to me, from the photos, why that would be necessary.

Perhaps so it can fit on the trailer.

31059 is listed in the database as Road Racing Machine, but the box art calls it Sunset Street Bike.

31056 is uninspiring, really. But I think the C-model would do for me.
31057 seems like a fun mix of old and new. B and C models are complementary.
31058 is... well... me pre-order
31059's A-model is a motorcycle. And a darn good one at that.
31060's blue plane has a weird wing/fuselage design. Lots of offset construction.

Right now... 3.75/5.

I really like 31058 Mighty Dinosaurs

Nope, nothing that interest myself so far (we will see what happens with the minifigures buildings as I am in the slow process of making a Lego City mixed with SW sets).

MIGHTY DINOSAURS! and a pterosaur.
TWO MIGHTY DINOSAURS! and one flying reptile.
Lego be all "they extinct - they dinosaur".
But what of our children? What of the future of palaeontology?
How can science itself advance if such ignorance persists?
First Trump. And now this.
Sad times. Sad times.

How many rehash of cars can they keep doing?? most of the released pics are unexciting very curious to see what townhouse looks like otherwise the creator line is disappointingly dull for 2017 so far

I know LEGO doesn't want to do make their dinosaurs accurate since the more reptilian designs appeal more to children, but that T. Rex doesn't even look right as a Jurassic Park-type dinosaur. It lacks bulk and has a completely wrong and has a, frankly, stupid looking snout.

When will the designers realize that if they make a Creator helicopter, the other two designs don't have to be an airplane and a boat? Granted, the boat designs have the most variety, but after seeing 5866, 31013, 31047, 31029, 31011, and 31039 this new 31057 set doesn't look interesting at all.
(At least 31023 included a car instead of an airplane...)

Meh. I used to collect all the creator sets but the last few years they have been really poor. Most of these look like they weren't even trying.

I really like Creator as a Lego theme; that's what I seem to be buying the most. But these don't quite do it for me: there's a(nother) car that can be turned into a boat, there's a helicopter that can be turned into a boat... The dinosaurs seem ok. Admitted, these seem to be the smaller sets, and I imagine it is quite difficult to come up with new 3-1 sets year after year.

@billydeewilliams: Ironically, they could have fixed that just by calling it "Mighty Dinosaur" (singular). It's not unusual for Creator set names to only describe the A model, like the new Sunset Street Bike set. But by using the plural "dinosaurs" it implies that the name describes all three models.

Anyway, lots of great builds and great parts on display here. I don't really collect Creator but I think of it as one of the quintessential LEGO themes, and enjoy the builds from time to time when I get them as gifts or prizes. My biggest disappointment is that there's no really adorable set like http://brickset.com/sets/31044-1/Park-Animals, http://brickset.com/sets/31031-1/Rainforest-Animals, or http://brickset.com/sets/31021-1/Furry-Creatures. I got Park Animaks recently and loved it, so hopefully there's a set like that which just hasn't been revealed yet…

I am buying Mighty Dinosaurs and combining it with my "Green NRG Dragon" to make a proper green dragon.

Junior sets are a great source pack for printed tiles. This year only the warning sign in the construction site set is desireable

Isn't the a model of mighty dinosaurs a raptor?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

@Casper_van_hobbes: It does look like a raptor. I wonder how I would add feathers. 'Teeth' plates and clips with feather pieces, I think.

@Aanchir: very good idea. But should I also include the ... interior mechanism?

31058 Mighty Dinosaurs Looks pretty great, its like a green equivalent of 31032 Red Creatures, and I'll always welcome more green.

@billydeewilliams hey, at least they got the hand orientation right. You dont see that every day

By in United States,

These look overly simplified in design and I think that might be purposeful. I think the concept is to use that overall retail configuration to drive traffic to the Rebrick aspect of the LEGO site. And these sets more than other Creator sets might have had a lot of prelim discussions about what parts to include and then the designs came after.

On the one hand I think that's neat, cause lately on the Creator stuff I have been opening I have been jumping right into the rebuilds. Except for the bigger sets.

I'll be waiting to see what that Blue train ends up being!

Oh, man! My 4892-1: Prehistoric Power triceratops will finally have a family! Or a rival! Or both! I'm clearly excited about this...

By in United States,

The Airshow Aces set looks rather childish and poorly made. The rest however look pretty cool.

This is pretty good! Three dinasours build in one set and all of them are very well design. That's what I remember Lego as. Well, not many are well design nowadays in my opinion.
