In terms of playability, dinosaurs and helicopters are a match made in heaven so it's perhaps no surprise that many sets containing both have been released over the years.
The description for the latest one, 75928 Blue's Helicopter Pursuit, at LEGO com, suggests that the transportation of a raptor by air is an integral part of the storyline of the forthcoming Fallen Kingdom film, so I won't repeat it here to avoid spoilers.
This set appears to have everything needed to re-enact what is probably a key scene from the movie.
Owen Grady appears in four Fallen Kingdom sets and in three of them he's attired in this sand blue shirt and sleeveless leather jacket.
Legs and torso are printed with a lot of detail, as we've come to expect. He's armed with a 1x1 stud shooting crossbow.
To be honest I'm not really seeing the similarity with Chris Pratt...
He has a double-sided head, the one not shown has a down-turned mouth. There's no printing on his back; instead he wears an open rucksack.
I haven't been able to find out much about Ken Wheatley in the JW wikis but I think we can assume from his facial expression that he's an antagonist of some sort.
He's not armed but does have a shoulder belt full of bullets at the front and gun holster at the back.
He carries a dinosaur bone.
The third minifigure is the helicopter pilot who wears the same uniform as the guards in the other sets we've reviewed.
Blue the velociraptor is the dinosaur star of the film and can be found only in this set and the most expensive of the range, 75930 Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate. It's vastly superior to the version in the 2015 set 75917 Raptor Rampage, although the colour of the printing on its legs could have better matched the sand green of his body.
The image on the box shows Owen driving this 4-wheel buggy with trailer although it beggars belief that anyone would venture out into dinosaur-land in an uncovered vehicle!
It's a reasonable model: the new bull bar piece on the front helps set it apart from other similar vehicles.
Blue can be transported in a cage by the helicopter which provides a hook for the purpose, as you'll see below.
The inadequate fencing around the sides might be effective at preventing a few chickens from escaping but I think Blue would have no problems stepping over them.
They can be lowered for loading and unloading...
... which would probably result in another unfortunate incident...
As LEGO helicopters go this is a pretty good one. Despite the one-piece canopy there's a good level of detail, and the colour scheme is great. The dark blue that's been used throughout the Fallen Kingdom sets looks so much better than the bright blue of the 2015 range.
The hook for lifting the cage can be seen at the back here, as can the small 'postbox' which can be detached from the rear. There's nothing in it, just a tranquilser gun attached to the side.
There are three seats in the craft: two at the back look out over the side, presumably to allow figures sitting in them to access to the spotlight on the starboard side and the machine gun on the port side.
The blades can be rotated by means of a gear at the bottom of the fuselage; handy when swooshing it around the room.
The canopy can be detached with ease to seat the pilot.
Overall, it's a pretty good set that offers younger purchasers a lot of playability. The helicopter sports an attractive livery and is a decent size, so makes a pretty good display piece for the rest of us. The minifigures are great and so is Blue, whose markings are the best I've seen on a LEGO velociraptor.
But, and it's a big 'but' if you're in Europe: the price is obscene! In the USA you can pick this for a cent under $40 but in the UK it'll set you back the equivalent of $71, and it's not much better in the Eurozone where it's the equivalent of $62.
Even allowing for different rates of sales tax I fail to see how on earth such a disparity in price can be justified. I guess LEGO is charging what it thinks the market will bear, or maybe it's priced knowing that in a few months it'll be discounted by 30% at Amazon...
Had it been priced at the rough equivalent of $40, i.e. £30, I would have no hesitation in recommending you rush out and buy it but, as it is, I suggest you vote with your wallets and wait for a decent discount.
If you're in the USA it's a different matter: $40 for 400 pieces, including three figures and a great dinosaur, it's a no-brainer...
Thanks to LEGO for providing this set for this review, which is an expression of my own opinions.
