Review: 75930 Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate

75930 Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate is the largest of the new sets which make up the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom range, containing 1019 pieces. The manor house looks marvellous in official images and the minifigure selection is brilliant, featuring almost every major character from the movie!

However, I have most been looking forward to the brand new Indoraptor. Promotional material has demonstrated that this hybrid dinosaur will occupy a prominent role in the film so the LEGO rendition should prove to be very appealing. Unfortunately, this set costs £119.99 or $129.99 which seems quite expensive to me, although a selection of three dinosaurs are included and the bigger ones are bound to inflate the price by virtue of their complexity.

LEGO Overwatch sets are on the way

Posted by ,

So this is interesting. Activision Blizzard have announced today at Licensing Expo 2018 in Las Vegas the new partnerships they are making for Overwatch this next year, and LEGO is on the list:

“The merchandising program for Overwatch is significantly expanding. Hasbro has been awarded the master toy license for the franchise with plans for a wide range of play experiences including a NERF product line, games and more. Additionally, LEGO Group has plans for multiple Overwatch building sets across various price points.”

Now, I know next to nothing about Overwatch, but this does seem pretty cool for fans of the game - of which I know there are many.
