Lego Dino - Dinosaur Lego Sets 2012 2013

Updated on April 16, 2013

New Dinosaur Lego Sets for 2012

We're very excited about the new range of Lego Dino sets for 2012. It's about time we had some new dinosaur Lego sets.

I have a five year old son and two of his great interests in life are dinosaurs and Lego. The Lego Dino sets are for kids age 5-12, so this is just perfect!

The Lego Dino sets were first available in early 2012.

LEGO Dino 2013 Sets?

Will there be any new LEGO Dino sets for 2013? No, it doesn't look like it. What's more, therthe LEGO Dino theme has been discontinued for 2013. So you probably want to think about buying any LEGO Dino sets that you want as soon as possible. LEGO Sets can get very expensive once they are discontinued.

It might be a while before we get more LEGO dinosaur sets and dinosaurs are hugely popular with lots of kids.

Future LEGO Dinosaur Theme - What would you like to see?

The LEGO Dino theme was based around the Dino Team needing to save humans from rampaging escaped dinosaurs.

A previous Dino Attack theme was much more conflict based.

LEGO Dino Sets on eBay

The LEGO Dino range was discontinued at the end of 2012 after just one year in production. Dinosaurs remain a popular theme with younger LEGO fans so these sets have become collectible.

You can usually find the sets on eBay. New unopened sets are likely to be quite expensive, but you can also find used sets. Buying a collection can be good value sometimes.
