The Jurassic World license is the perfect marriage of two things I loved as a kid: LEGO and dinosaurs. Such a fun theme. Too bad the same thing can’t be said for today’s polybag, 30382 Baby Velociraptor Playpen.
It’s got a watering dish.
It’s got a feeding stick.
It’s got bars to keep the baby dino in.
It’s got an archway for the Baby Velociraptor to go in and out? Not exactly the kind of feature one would look for in a playpen for a Baby Velociraptor, which also renders the bars useless. But hey, this is Jurassic World where stupider decisions have been made.
But it does have alarm lights in case the baby dino makes a run for it.
The star of the show is obviously the baby Velociraptor. It’s not exactly unique as it has appeared in 8 other sets. There’s little reason to pick up this polybag other than if you wanted a horde of these things. They do make for a good Compsagnathus if you wanted to pick up a couple and redo that terrific scene from the beginning of The Lost World. Other than that really there’s no reason.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set sucks! 30382 Baby Velociraptor Playpen is, since it’s not a minified version of a larger set, supposed to offer a slice of life of the Jurassic World theme. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really offer anything to really enhance or expand the theme in any meaningful way.
There’s no sponsor this week, and with sponsorships lasting a whole week, you can get plenty of exposure for mere pennies. Pennies I say! Want to sponsor a review? Send me a message to email@example.com or hit me up on discord of the polybag set you have that you want me to review. If selected, in exchange for the set you’ll get a mention right here in the review post and a link to your website or social media account or just about anything else.. Nearly free advertising, so what’s stopping you?
You Can Win This And Every Other Polybag I Review This Year
I’ll be raffling every polybag I review this year in one big lot, all 260 sets (with the possibility of more). Each set will be individually stored in a ziploc baggie complete with the extra pieces, instructions, and the actual polybag bag it came in. The cost of a raffle ticket is just $1 USD and you can enter as many times as you want. Send a PayPal payment to firstname.lastname@example.org for $1 USD for every ticket you want to purchase. DO NOT send one payment for multiple entries i.e. do not send one $5 USD payment for five tickets; five $1 USD payments must be made instead. Raffle is open to everyone in the world except where raffles are illegal. Be sure to put “POLYBAG RAFFLE” in the notes section of the payment in order to be entered successfully. Winner will be drawn sometime early January 2023 and contacted at the PayPal email address the payment was sent from to arrange for delivery.
