Recommendation: yes 5 / 5 from 1 review

This set costs $59.99 and just came out October 2019 and is still made, shame on anyone charging more than that.

Recommendation: meh 4.79 / 5 from 77 reviews

This set is fantastic! All of the builds look great once completed. The Lego sapian skeleton is a fun touch. the only is I have is that the triceratops and t Rex have a lot of weak connections. The ribs are hard to position and the t Rex tail bottoms are not particularly secure. Speak of the t Rex, the head is a great design but is far too heavy to be held at the joint it's connected too. The one position you can get the head to stay up looks great though. This is definitely a collectors/builders set for almost everyone, I wouldn't recommend it to a younger audience. All in all its a great looking build and seeing that it was available again definitely meant I had to get it!

Recommendation: meh 78 / 100 by John

Overall, it's great that they've included these dinosaurs, but I would have liked to have seen more of a tie back to the original submission. To me, this seems like way too much of a deviation away from the project, and a whole different set. The parts that are included are more than enough to make a different dinosaur if you wish, and the displayed versions look extremely cool, especially if you're a dino fan. It's a good price and a good build.

Recommendation: meh by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

I do like the overall look of them. My favorite is probably the Triceratops but I don't like that the feet don't actually connect to the legs. All three are at a 1:32 scale so it's accurate and cool to have it displayed on a desk or shelf. I'm now wondering if LEGO will do any expansion packs to this set to include the other dinosaurs.

I wasn't expected much from this set, it's basically a mass of white elements and often stuff with bones in, can be a bit of a ‘clipfest', with less building. So I have been pleasantly surprised by the set, it looks great, making it a great display piece and there is actually a decent amount of building across the set.

Recommendation: meh by CapnRex101

These models certainly include some wonderful detail and look attractive on display but I think there is some potential for improvement. The skeletal structures appear very bulky when compared with actual skeletons and including further supports would have removed the need for such robust cores.

Brick Fanatics

Recommendation: meh by Graham

The limitations of LEGO bricks and requirements for stability must have made designing 21320 Dinosaur Fossils quite the challenge, yet once again the LEGO Ideas theme has provided something completely unique that will look attractive on the shelf. Much like LEGO Architecture sets, these distinctive white builds have a stylish quality that makes them feel more like a display piece than a toy. Capturing these dinosaur fossils as they look while retaining the essence of the creatures, this is a set that dinosaur enthusiasts are unlikely to regret buying.

Recommendation: yes by Andrew

Readers of this review will certainly have sensed that I have many issues with this set, not least of which is the accuracy of naming for both the set itself (pterosaurs are not dinosaurs) and most obviously the Styrachosaurus labeled as a Triceratops, as well as the shining white color of the skeletons. At the same time, the fun of the build is in assembling anatomically accurate skeletons of extinct creatures, not in innovative building techniques with new parts. In reality, perhaps my annoyance with these inaccuracies is because I really love this set. There's obviously deep care that both the fan designer and in-house LEGO design team have taken to ensure LEGO builders have an opportunity to recreate and display fantastic LEGO dinosaurs and a pterosaur.

Recommendation: meh by Elspeth De Montes

With no new elements, no new colours and lots of parts that are easily purchased on the secondary market, I would not recommend this as a parts pack to MOC builders unless you like the kind of White elements offered. This is a build and display set although I imagine quite a few LEGO Natural History Museums will be under construction soon to house these fine specimens.
