Adult fans of LEGO (AFOLs) will soon be able to add palaeontology to their list of marketable skills thanks to the release of the Dinosaur Fossils (21320) toy building kit. The 910-piece set is another set put into production by LEGO Ideas, the company’s crowd-sourcing platform that allows collectors to submit ideas for consideration as commercial products.
The kit includes three 1:32-scale replicas of two dinosaur skeleton models (Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex) and an articulated pterosaur reptile (Pteranodon), also in skeleton form. As expected, T-Rex is the largest of the three models, standing at 7-inches high and 15-inches long.
Each model is fully poseable and comes with its own display stand for a museum-style fossil display. The set also includes a sapiens skeleton figure with a display stand and a palaeontologist toy minifigure. A buildable crate, dinosaur egg, bone, hat, and notebook complete the scene and allow for creative role-play.
The Dinosaur Fossils set checks in at $59.99 USD and will be available at the LEGO online store in November.
