Hey everyone! Today I have another LEGO Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom review! This is set 75927 Stygimoloch Breakout, a 222-piece set that retails for £34.99 (UK), $29.99 (U.S.), $49.99 (Aus), and $59.99 (NZ). The first minifigure in the set is the scientist Dr Wu. He has a nice black hairpiece as well as a double-sided head (a smile and a disgruntled frown). Unlike his 2015 minifigure, he does not wear a lab coat. Instead, he wears a light grye suit over a black sweater. The suit has a “DR.” name tag on it which looks nice. He has plain dark grey pants and a yellow coffee cup.
(Apologies about the overly cropped legs on the left, the original image of him was too high res that Imgur automatically cropped it and I didn’t notice. The same issue applies to the next minifigure.) The other minifigure in this set is a guard. He wears the nice black and dark blue outfit that all the other guards in this theme wear. His head is from a Resistance Trooper in 75189 and 75195, which isn’t very common so it’s nice to get him here. He has a grey beanie and a tranquilizer gun. The dinosaur in this set is a Stygimoloch. According to scientists, Stygimolochs are actually shorter than humans so this dino is oversized, but then again most of the dinos in the Jurassic World line are oversized in favor of articulation. This dino reuses the Raptor body mold but I think the legs are new, as are the hands. The limbs can be posed thanks to Technic pin connections, and the head can be rotated side-to-side. There are some horn pieces attached to the back which can be taken off (though that wouldn’t be accurate). Stygimoloch dinosaurs are known for head-butting so it would have been nice to have the ability to hinge the head forward, though I guess you can hinge it at the legs. The minifigure selection in this set is honestly kind of underwhelming. Dr. Wu is fine, but the other minifigure is generic (albeit a better generic figure) and the dino doesn’t seem to be particularly important. Meh. The build in the set is a containment area for the Stygimoloch and a lab for Dr. Wu. As many have pointed out, this set resembles 75920 Raptor Escape, though more substantial and $10 USD cheaper. The containment area itself is hexagonal in shape. It looks pretty good, with its grey and dark blue color scheme. Molded fence pieces are used but they look perfectly fine. A couple of stickered flag pieces attached to bars indicate that the bars are electrical fences. There’s space to put the Stygimoloch inside, and while it’s not a squeeze physically, I would feel very cramp if I was the Stygimoloch. There’s a stickered brick on the wall next to the lab that shows a screen – maybe to lock the door.
There’s a door on one side of the containment area. It has an X-truss piece incorporated into it which looks nice, as well as a stickered hazard sign. The door can be lifted up, and there is sufficient friction to hold it in its raised position. There is no stopper so you can even take if out. The Stygimoloch can be properly released from its cell this way.
However, the X-truss piece on the opposite side (connecting to the lab) can be knocked down as it is only attached with two studs. The Stygimoloch can then enter the lab and cause mayhem! The lab itself is not much, but there are a couple of details. The main one is an (oversized) table for Dr. Wu. It has a stickered computer showing the Stygimoloch’s skull, as well as a containment area for a couple of eggs. A panel on the wall has a calendar which has the release date of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom circled as a fun fact. There’s also a second storey to the lab accessible by a ladder (if it can be even called a storey). There’s a narrow walkway which has a big translucent light blue window that overlooks the Stygimoloch containment area. There’s also a bit of fencing to the right which overlooks… nothing. Now, back to the lab. Remember Dr. Wu’s table from earlier? You can use the Stygimoloch to knock it backwards, which knocks out the window panel behind it. More destructive fun!
Okay, so let’s see this set on the whole. I have to say, I’m a little disappointed. THe build looks good, but the minifigures are rather dull. I’d say even 75926 Pteranodon Chase has a better minifigure selection since it is cheaper and has Owen. Playability is just okay, since there’s not a whole lot of room to move the Stygimoloch around and I think this feels a little cramp for a playset. The price is also too high – this set should be cheaper, maybe around £24.99 UK), $24.99 (U.S.), $39.99 (Aus), and $49.99 (NZ).
