GOOD POINTS: LEGO fans out there have been eagerly awaiting the exciting new DINO range, and if the T-Rex Hunter is anything to go by, then this newest collection will certainly not disappoint!

Aimed more at young boys, the set contains a generous number of good quality pieces for your child to construct a 'terrifying' dinosaur-themed adventure scene, where our hero captors are on a mission stop the rampaging T-Rex and take him back to the jungle before he flattens the city!

Lego Dino T-Rex Hunter

The construction set contains a large number of mainly brown and yellow parts and pieces which are sorted into four numbered bags. These bags relate to the two accompanying instructions booklets which give a step-by-step and easy-to-follow diagrammed guide to assembling the set.

There are two main constructions in the set which are both great fun to build. The first is a generously-sized yellow helicopter with solid design, rotating blades and landing wheels, along with wonderful attention to detail in the cockpit as well as on the exterior (with stickers included to add further detailing). The helicopter has many features to help capture and transport the fearsome T-Rex dinosaur back to his jungle home, including missiles, a substantial chain supported hook and a 'grabbing' harness to clamp around the dino's body to enable him to be towed off the ground under the helicopter. 

The second build is a fun brown and yellow scout vehicle, again with fantastic detail, oversized rolling tread tyres and a detachable trailer fitted to the back which holds a large removable camera and binoculars (both included)! There is even a place on the back of the vehicle to store weapons - in particular two large tranquiliser guns (also included) which simply snap into place.

The two minifigures included with the playset (which need assembling) look amazing in their detailed outfits and expressioned faces. One is wearing a green pilot uniform with harness, helmet and goggles, and fits inside the helicopter by lifting up the roof of the cockpit. The other minifigure drives the scout vehicle and comes complete with an all-in-one beige zip-up suit, hairpiece and stubbled face. Even the backs of the minifigures are detailed! The set of course also includes a great sized brownLego T-Rex Hunter dinosaur (which also needs assembling), with wonderful body markings, huge teeth, clawed feet, posable limbs and opening jaws!

This set, in our opinion, will have a great 'wow factor' for boys of all ages. This authentic set has not one but two fun buildable models with loads of features, and comes with excellent dinosaur and minifigure accessories to enhance the play experience and capture your child's imagination for hours of entertainment - another great quality product from LEGO!

BAD POINTS: The set is quite expensive, but does include lots of pieces. Only includes two minifigures and only one minifigure can fit inside the helicopter. As with any such type of product, there are many tiny parts which are prone to being lost over time.

PRICE: Approx. £49.99
