Since Brick Insights began indexing LEGO reviews we've added 376.4 reviews each week on average. That's a bit misleading since thousands of reviews were added in bursts, but still - that's a lot of reviews! This page shows you what happened this week, since 2019-10-16. You could say it's a week of reviews in review if you wanted to be a bit cheeky.
These sets have received extra attention, with multiple reviews for each of them. They're all from 2019 or 2020 and ought to be available for purchase.
by Elspeth De Montes for New Elementary 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.
by CapnRex101 for Brickset News 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.
by Graham for Brick Fanatics 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.
by Andrew for The Brothers Brick 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.
by Adam White for Bricksfanz 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.
by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran for The Brick Fan 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.
8.2 / 10 by Jim for Eurobricks Proper gearbox? Check. Proper suspension? Check. Proper steering? Check. Working steering wheel? Check. Some other extra-ordinary functions (like ride height adjustment)? Not really. A winch, but that hardly counts. Does the lack of extra function prevent this car from being called a supercar? I honestly don't think so. This is a very well designed car, with very well working functionality. This model is most definitely one of the best Technic cars TLG has designed.
by Chris for The Brothers Brick If you've been a fan of any of LEGO Technic's previous licensed street vehicles, then you'll find a lot to love here with a solid build, complex mechanicals, and a great color scheme. The removable roof rack and extra cargo boxes are fun and the suspension delightful. And of course, there are all the new elements, both wholly new and newly olive green, to excite longtime Technic fans. The $200 price point for more than 2,500 pieces makes the set a fair deal, especially for a high-profile licensed product. So if you're ready to leave the slick city streets and their Technic supercars and head to the wilderness, the Land Rover Defender is an excellent way to start.
4 / 5 by amazon.com It looks kind of weird but it's still pretty cool to have a 16 inch Yoda. It's probably not really for amateur builders as much as Master Builders. People who don't do much Lego building would probably get frustrated with something with this many pieces.
by CapnRex101 for Brickset News Befitting the exceptional popularity of this character, 75255 Yoda is an impressive set. Recreating his wrinkled skin must have been particularly challenging but I think this design looks marvellous and the shaping across the head appears similarly accurate. Moreover, the robe texturing has been executed beautifully in my opinion and seems quite natural, despite comprising angular bricks and plates.
