Lego Dinosaur - Ambush Attack

Updated on February 25, 2013

Lego Dino Ambush Attack

LEGO Dino is a series of Lego sets introduced in 2012. The combination of constructing Lego and the wonder of dinosaurs make this an exciting theme for boys.

The LEGO Dino Ambush Attack set is the smallest and cheapest set in this theme but contains some really good pieces to play with including a really great Lego dinosaur Coelophysis! This lens introduces this Lego set and takes a look at the good and bad points via a video review.

I hope you enjoy viewing the Ambush Attack Dino Lego set.

If you want to start a LEGO dinosaur collection or add to your existing collection this little set is made for you. In this set the hero minifigure is armed with just a tranquilizer gun to subdue the fierce Coelophysis, although he also has a cool off-road vehicle to give him the speed he needs to tackle such a formidable creature.

The Minifigures & Dinosaurs - What's Cool & What's Not

Driver Minifigure

What's Cool

The color scheme of this hero minifigure is really nice and the torso has some really detailed printing to give the effect of a well-equipped hero ready to take on anything.The hero's helmet is an interesting design and gives him good protection from the strike of a dinosaur's claw.The gun with tranquilizer dart is really great; I love the way these guys are going to protect innocent civilians from dinosaurs but not kill the creatures in the process.

What's Not Cool

This hero has no name! He is going to risk his life to capture this dinosaur single-handed and the only name he is given is "driver"!!!!!

Lego Coelophysis

What's Cool

Coelophysis Lego dinosaur looks great. He looks like a dinosaur and has a great fierce face and unique body printing. There is a Coelophysis dinosaur in the LEGO Dino Defense HQ set but it has a different color scheme.Coelophysis has a Lego brick node on his back so that imaginative people can fix all manner of saddles or weapons systems upon him.He is a dinosaur; kids are going to just love him!

What's Not Cool

This Lego dinosaur is made of a rubberized plastic and doesn't really feel like Lego at all.This dinosaur Lego figure is all one piece; no construction at all is needed.

Take a look at this detailed review of the whole set in the video clip below for more details.

Final Word On Lego Dino Ambush Attack 5882

This is a really nice little set for Lego fans, particularly those who like dinosaurs. Youngsters are going to go crazy for this Lego Coelophysis dinosaur and the hero minifigure and his little off-road vehicle are really great too.

Although the dinosaur doesn't really feel like Lego that will not matter much to those who want to create a Lego dinosaur collection; he looks so fierce and realistic that fans will love him.

Like all Lego sets, this can be a bit pricey but it can also be picked up for a bargain price at times.
