Dinosaurs have always held a degree of fascination for me: as a child, I would spend hours looking at pictures, and wondering why I couldn’t find any realistic toys or models of these giant, extinct reptiles.
Since the advent of Jurassic Park, over 25 years ago, there has been no shortage of dinosaur toys on the shelves, and making their way in to LEGO sets over recent years.
This year we have already seen the Jurassic World T. Rex Rampage set released, at the cost of storage space. Today, we see the latest LEGO Ideas set: 21321 dinosaur Fossils. With 910 Pieces, Skeletons for: T. Rex, Stegasaurus and a Pteranadon, 2 minifigures and museum style plinths, the set goes on sale on November 1st 2019.
Recommended for ages 16+, the set will be priced around $AUD100. (read on for International Pricing and more images)

Take a step back in time to when dinosaurs wandered the Earth with the all new LEGO® Ideas Dinosaur Fossils set, available directly from LEGO stores and online from 1st November. Dinosaur and LEGO brick fans alike can get their hands on this highly detailed set of brick-built fossils to proudly display on their desk or at home.
This set is a must have for anyone with a passion for dinosaurs and all things prehistoric. The set contains three buildable dinosaur skeletons of the infamous T-rex, Triceratops and a Pteranodon with display stands to create a LEGO style natural history exhibit.
The LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils set contains 910 pieces, creating three detailed dinosaur skeletons that are perfect to learn more about these magnificent creatures. Each of the models are posable, allowing builders to recreate ferocious poses on their desks.
The set comes complete with interesting facts about each of the dinosaurs on display and information about the sets LEGO fan designer. The set’s LEGO Ideas fan designer is Jonathan Brunn; a graphic and web designer, working in a creative agency in Perpignan, France. He is also a massive science and dinosaur geek, into space, searching for fossils and everything related… and of course, he’s a big LEGO fan.
Jonathan tells “When I was little, my passion for dinosaurs was almost obsessional. Dinosaurs were the most incredible thing ever for me, so I made this project to please my inner child! I would have loved it as a kid, and I think every kid who loves dinosaurs and science would agree with me”.
The models are built to 1:32 scale and each come with their own individual stands and a sapiens skeleton figure to truly showcase the fascinating scale of these prehistoric animals. The T-rex model is the largest of the three measuring over 7” (20cm) tall and 15” (40cm) long making this set significantly easier to display and store than a real 12-metre-long T-rex!

There you have it. I love the level of detail, as well as the poseability included in these models, and traditional rivals such as the T. rex and Triceratops, along with the pteranosaur, make for a logical combination. I love the inclusion of ‘LEGO Sapiens’ as a marker for scale in the collection of models. What do you think? Day one, or wait and see?
