Any toy collector could tell you that LEGO is one of the best there is at handling franchise licenses and manufacturing some of the most awesome tie-in products that do the license proud. LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Batman are some of the triumphant examples of their expertise, among others.
Take also for example, the Universal Pictures film series Jurassic Park, later Jurassic World. Remember that they’ve got the latest installment, subtitled Fallen Kingdom, set to come out in the middle of 20918. To build up the hype, LEGO is releasing some really sweet tie-in sets in the following months.
But they’re just getting started. LEGO newshounds combing their international websites have found a very interesting trailer on the Norwegian LEGO page here. What’s revealed is the LEGO rendition of one of the featured dinosaurs for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. It’s a real beastie called Carnotaurus, depicted hidden among foliage.
This teaser would have it that the LEGO Jurassic World Carnotaurus will be designated set 75929. This curious sprinting two-legged dinosaur with the prominent “eyebrow fins” is seen in the Super Bowl LII trailer for Fallen Kingdom. Unfortunately its scene has it being chomped on by a T-Rex in a split-second.
After the teaser was spotted, LEGO went on to Twitter with another preview giving us a nice full look at their Carnotaurus (75929) in CG, playing a round of football with Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) in what seems to be a reference the Fallen Kingdom trailer during Sunday’s Super Bowl LII.
Can’t. Even. Wait.

LEGO pegs their new Jurassic World sets to start “touching down” in stores this coming April. It’s therefore a safe bet that the Carnotaurus (75929) will be counted among them. We’ll be keeping an eye out for when images of the actual set will appear, so keep bearing with us.
