Looks like there's a new Lego rifle in these sets.

Does anyone out there have any idea if there is a backstory to go with the theme? In the background of the Box Art I can see a city, as well as electrified fences surrounding some of the jungle. Very interested to learn more.

Seeing the studs on the backs of the dinosaurs makes me want to build harnesses and saddles for them. Dino Riders!

Some of the torsos look good - could be re-used for military MOCs. Not a fan of the big molded dino-pieces though. Too much like Playmobil for a LEGO set.

Why do all the vehicles look like they're on three wheels. I can understand the packaging angle left to right and right to left w/ depth - but they look almost clip-artish trying to capture the action. I'm looking at the #5882, #5884 and #5885 specifically.

My 5 year old is already picking out his favorites, so we'll be on the lookout for them.

This looks like a ripoff of Jurassic Park.

Of course, just like they already did in 2005, possibly recycling the same dino molds this time. I don't have any problem with that.
2012 Dino is to Dino Attack as Power Miners is to Rock Raiders.

Why is this a ripoff of Jurassic Park instead of The Land Before Time?

Because Littlefoot doesn't get pursued by vehicles and artillery.

Neither do his friends. Not to mention TLBT doesn't have humans and vehicles, just dinosaurs and other creatures. TLBT also doesn't have action & stuff. It's just 5 little dinosaurs that go on different adventures.

And so what if it is a Jurassic Park rip off?

This stuff looks like the best "new" theme in a long while. I really cant wait for these to come on sale. I just hope the theme DOES have a half decent back story.
