Review: 75208 Yoda's Hut

Luke's period of training with Yoda includes many of the most important and well known scenes from throughout the entire Star Wars saga. It is therefore somewhat surprising that the Dagobah environment has only appeared once before in 4502 X-wing Fighter, a set that was released more than a decade ago!

75208 Yoda's Hut might therefore be the most anticipated Star Wars set of the year so far, returning to this vital location and including three brand new minifigures. I have certainly been looking forward to this set, although the design of Yoda's hut appears to diverge quite significantly from what we see in the films. Hopefully those changes will be justified and still result in an excellent completed model.

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.

Review: 75927 Stygimoloch Breakout

Three years have passed since the first wave of Jurassic World sets was released in 2015. Those sets proved to be incredibly popular and I think this second series might be even more exciting, including a much broader range of prehistoric creatures along with some excellent models!

75927 Stygimoloch Breakout really stood out when the first Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom images were revealed a couple of months ago. This set includes a new dinosaur as well as its enclosure which is absolutely packed with detail and functions. It therefore feels reminiscent of 75920 Raptor Escape from 2015 but expands upon that model, featuring a section of Dr. Wu's lab which looks as though it could be rather interesting.
