Hi everyone! VaderFan here and today I have a LEGO Juniors set review for you all – 10758 T. Rex Breakout! This is the largest LEGO Juniors Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom set, and is one of the three Fallen Kingdom Juniors sets released in 2018. It retails for £44.99 in the UK, $49.99 in the U.S., $79.99 in Australia, and $89.99 in New Zealand. Let us check it out!
LEGO T. Rex Breakout Set Review
Claire Dearing Minifigure
The first minifigure in the LEGO T. Rex Breakout set is Claire Dearing. She is the only named character in this set, and this is the cheapest way to get her minifigure. She has a dark orange ponytail hairpiece and a double-sided head with smiling and scared expressions. She wears an olive green jacket over a striped shirt, and has brown pants. Her accessory is a walkie-talkie.
The second minifigure is a scientist. He has dark brown tousled hair and a double-sided head which was previously used on Leonard from the Big Bang Theory Ideas set and Justin Hammer in 76077 Detroit Steel Strikes. His torso print is new, and he wears sand blue pants. Like Claire, he also has a walkie-talkie.
The final minifigure included in the LEGO T. Rex Breakout set is a Guard. Interestingly, the guard outfits in the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Juniors sets is different from the ones in the regular sets – I wonder why. He wears a dark blue cap and has a shocked expression – this face was first used for a security guard in 70910 Scarecrow Special Delivery. He is armed with a normal tranquilizer gun piece that has a lime green syringe element attached to it.
T. Rex Dinosaur
The dinosaur included in the set is, as the set name suggests, a T. Rex. Some of the parts are reused from a 2015 LEGO Jurassic World set, but according to the Brickset inventory, the head and arms are new.
I like the T. Rex’s color scheme overall, even if it is reused. It is pretty poseable, and balance is not an issue if you connect it to a studded base, so is fun for play. The jaw can open and close so you can put a minifigure inside for the T. Rex to eat!
Baby T. Rex Dinosaur
There’s also a baby T. Rex included. This is a new mold for 2018, and is dark orange. I like the molded and printed detail. This comes in two other sets at the time of writing. Apart from a single anti-stud at the base, there are no connection points, but that is forgivable given its small size.
Science Station Build
The first sidebuild here is what the set description calls a “science station”. It has a wall panel with printed window that shows a graphic of Isla Nublar, and has a rooftop with leaf on top. There is two translucent light blue containers for dino eggs, as well as a brown crate. The left portion has a small enclosure for the baby T. Rex. The entire science station is built on one 6×10 tan plate. Also included is a mini palette build that holds another dino egg. It has a couple of bars on either side so minifigures can hold on to it.
Another build included in the set is this small van. It has a bright blue color scheme, which is consistent with the other Juniors Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom sets, but differs from the regular Fallen Kingdom sets – I find it interesting how LEGO appears to make an effort to separate them. It has printed headlights and two nice printed blue panels with the Jurassic World logo on them.
It’s built around one of the standard LEGO Juniors car chassis pieces so is not a challenging build, which makes sense as this is a Juniors set.
The back of the van has an opening hatch, and there’s enough space to slide in the dino egg palette so you can drive off with it safely.
Jurassic World Park Enterance Build
The main build in the LEGO T. Rex Breakout set is what I believe is the entrance to the Jurassic World park. It’s built on top of a new dark green Juniors baseplate and a regular green plate.
It has a big printed wall panel piece that has a couple of brown gate pieces. The gate is currently bolted shut with a printed 1×4 tile but you can unlock it by removing the tile. There’s nothing on the other side of the build, all the detail is on this side. There’s a ladder on the left side for a guard to climb on top, though I’m not sure what he’d do when he reaches the top. I do like the printed 2×4 tile that says “Jurassic World”, and the printed ramp piece at the bottom is cool too. The right part has an electric fence and a hot dog attached to a click hinge arm that you can use to feed the T. Rex.
There’s also a switch next to the electric fence sign that you can push down to pretend the electric fence has been disabled.
The T. Rex can then knock down the electric fence panels (since they’re attached with only two studs each) and cause mayhem!
One nice thing about LEGO Juniors sets is that they always come with a graphic of everything included in the set.
All in all, I think the LEGO T. Rex Breakout 10758 is a good set. It has a good build and a decent minifigure selection. Playability is quite good, though it would be nice if the back of the model had some more stuff to do. The price is slightly high in the U.S., but I think it is justified in other countries like Britain and Australia.
