I’ve finally had some time to watch Jurassic World in theaters and for my second review of the LEGO Jurassic World sets, first of the boxed sets, I have the Raptor Rampage (75917). The set consists of 324 pieces and retails for $49.99. One of the main complaints I’ve heard about the LEGO Jurassic World sets is because of the prices but keep in mind there are some large molds included in the set on top of it being a licensed theme. The box contains three numbered bags, two individually bagged raptors, two instruction booklets, and a sticker sheet.
Warning: There will be spoilers in the LEGO Jurassic World reviews so if you haven’t watched Jurassic World yet, I suggest skipping these posts. I feel it’s been ample time between the release of the movie and the time the reviews go up and I assume a majority of the readers have already seen the movie.
There are three minifigures in the Raptor Rampage set: Owen Grady, Claire Dearing, and an ACU tooper.
Chris Pratt’s character, Owen Grady, is an exclusive minifigure to the LEGO Jurassic World sets. That is until the LEGO Dimensions Team Pack (71205) is released in September where he is also included. Owen has a long sleeve shirt and brown vest printing on both sides of the torso. The grey leg printing finishes out his outfit. His head and hairpiece are the same as Star Lord from the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Guardians of the Galaxy sets. His accessory is a small knife. This is Chris Pratt’s third outing as a LEGO minifigure with Emmet and Star Lord being the first two.
Next is Claire Dearing who is portrayed by Bryce Dallas Howard. She has printing of her white outfit that she wears a majority of the movie. She has a double-sided head with a worried look on one side and a angry look on the other. I believe her dark orange hair is a new piece which is somewhat reminiscent of her hairstyle in the movie. Her accessory is a a printed 1×2 cell phone tile.
Finally, we have the ACU trooper. He has some very nice dark blue printing on the torso. He also wears a sand blue flak jacket which was also used in The LEGO Movie sets. It has the letters ACU printed on the front. His accessory is a tranquilizer gun.
There are also two velociraptors included in the set: Blue and Delta. Blue is the dark green/olive colored raptor with some very nice blue printing running down the head on to the body while Delta is green and tan colored. Both raptors are the same mold as in the LEGO Dino sets from 2012 with the arms, legs, and head being poseable. Both dinosaurs also have mounted camera harnesses that attach to the head. These are used in the scene where the raptors are used to hunt down the Indominus Rex.
There are two parts to the build. The first is Owen’s green motorcycle. This is the first time that this style of motorcycle has appeared in dark green which is pretty accurate to the Triumph Scrambler that Chris Pratt rides in the movie.
The main build of the set is the mobile veterinary unit that is seen during and after the Indominus Rex chase. The truck is supposed to look like a modifed Mercedes Unimog but there are some inaccuracies between the LEGO version and the movie version. The biggest eyesore for me is the blue area on the lower part of the trailer. Also that 2×8 plate on both sides of the truck seems kind of pointless. Overall, the whole design of the mobile vet unit seems like your run-of-the-mill truck. It’s nothing too special but it doesn’t stand out either.
As with a lot of LEGO action sets, there some nice details inside the truck including some computer consoles as well as a missile turret that attaches to the roof of the truck to shoot a flick-fire missile as well as a spring-loaded launcher. There’s also an extra missile included. Unfortunately, this device doesn’t appear in the movie.
Overall, the LEGO Jurassic World Raptor Rampage (75917) set is a decent one despite some inaccuracies with the builds. The minifigures and the two velociraptors are the main draw of the set as many of them are exclusive to this particular set. I recommend picking up this set at a discounted price because the truck itself does not justify the $50 price point.
