75926 Pteranodon Chase Review!

Hey everyone! Today I have a review of the smallest LEGO Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom set – 75926 Pteranodon Chase! This set has 126 parts and retails for £19.99 (UK), $19.99 (U.S.), $34.99 (Aus), and $39.99 (NZ). There are two minifigures included in the set. The first is Owen Grady, the protagonist of the Jurassic World films. He has a tousled hair piece and the new Chris Pratt head, which looks good and can be used on Star-Lord if you want. He wears a brown jacket over a sand blue shirt and has dark blue jeans. This minifigure is not exclusive but this is the cheapest way to get him so he’s nice. His accessory is an egg. The other build is a tracker. She wears the very nice black/dark blue outfit that all the guards in this wave of Jurassic World sets wear. She has a black helmet with visor, and interestingly uses Mantis’ head (from 76079 Ravager Attack). It’s a pretty rare head piece so it’s nice to see it here again. Her weapon is a tranquilizer gun which is a neat accessory. Every Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom set includes a dinosaur, and this one is a Pteranodon. Interestingly, pteranodons seem to be a popular choice for small sets, as many other small dinosaur sets also come with pteranodons. I don’t really know why – are they cheaper to produce? Anyway, this pteranodon has an olive green and dark red color scheme which looks nice. The head can be hinged up and down to open/close the mouth. The wings can also be flapped up and down with clips. You can grab stuff like bars using the clips at the opposite end of the pteranodon. It’s a perfectly fine dino but I’m not a big fan of pteranodons. The build in the set is the tracker’s 4×4. It has a light grey and dark blue color scheme which looks pretty good, and a beefy, boxy style.

The body of the jeep is raised up pretty high in relation to the wheels which I think looks good – it makes it look like it has tons of suspension (even if it actually doesn’t). The wheels do not stick out of the fenders (though they are pretty far down) which is good-looking too. There are some stickers to make the jeep look nicer like the Jurassic World logo on the hood and numberplate stickers on the front and back. There’s a seat for one in the middle. The tracker can drive it (or Owen can too). The driver has a steering wheel and opening doors on both sides. There’s an arch shaped behind the driver interestingly achieved using a fender piece. You probably already have noticed the bright yellow net shooter on the back of the jeep. You can put the net inside and shoot it at the pteranodon to catch it. Underneath the net shooter is a clip. That clip holds a spanner. The opposite side of the jeep also has a clip, but that one can be used to hold the tranquilizer gun instead. The back of the jeep has some lights and a stickered numberplate. There’s also an opening storage section where you can pop in the egg that Owen was holding. That’s really it for the set!


All in all, I think this is a decent set. The jeep is quite nice, and the two minifigures included are good. However, the pteranodon is a little boring IMO, and I would have definitely liked at least one more minifigure. The price is also a bit too high, seeing how small the jeep is and considering that the pteranodon reuses molds. It’s okay, but there are better sets.
