This post is also available in: Nederlands (Dutch) Français (French) Русский (Russian)

What is a Velociraptor?

A Velociraptor is a theropod Dinosaur, they are characterised for their hollow bones and three-toed limbs. They lived in the Cretaceous period some 70 million years ago. Velociraptors also known as raptors became famous and popular because of the Steven Spielberg movie Jurassic park that was released in 1993 showing these raptors with a massive claw hunting for people. Real Raptors were a lot smaller reaching the size of half a human when they were adults and most likely had feathered bodies like birds.

Which versions of Velociraptors exist in as LEGO animals?

LEGO Raptor type 1: the brick-build Raptor

The first version of a LEGO raptor was a raptor made of LEGO bricks that came out witch set 1370 Raptor Rumble Studio in 2001. It was part of the LEGO Adventure theme the set features Johnny Thunder and Pippin Reed. The set had 2 Raptors and a Pteranodon inside.

LEGO Raptor type 2: Mutant Raptor

This Raptor appears in LEGO set 7474 Urban Avenger vs. Raptor and LEGO set 7295 Buggy chaser, these sets were released in 2005. The Raptor in this set is called Mutant Raptor and is massive compared to a LEGO Minifigure. It has a black and yellow skin. Although it was released in 2005, it is still easily obtainable and not so rare. We are not a fan of this Raptor as it misses the elegance of modern LEGO animals. Though it is probably a good toy for younger children as it is very sturdy.

LEGO Raptor type 3: Modern elegant Velociraptor

In 2011 LEGO released another dinosaur theme Dino. All the dinosaurs were redesigned to their modern form. The same happened for the Velociraptors. The same design was still used in the 2019 release of Rex Dangervest’s raptors in the LEGO 2 Movie. We really love this raptor: it is elegant, has a nice size and there are a lot of variants in color. We will go over the different releases.

LEGO theme Dino

As was said in 2011 released the Dino theme. Two of the boxes had Raptors in them. Box 5884 Raptor Chase which had an olive green raptor and box 5887 Dino Defense HQ which had a medium dark flesh dinosaur raptor.

Set 5887 was a big expensive set and the result is that the medium dark flesh dinosaur raptor is hard to find and expensive now.

The Velociraptor from LEGO set 5884 is a bit more easy to find but still expensive. The raptor has an olive green skin and a dark green back. The skin is covered with lime markings.

LEGO theme Jurassic World

These Dinosaurs came in 2015 with the release of the first Jurassic World movie. They are the four famous Velociraptors from the movie. Charlie, Echo, Delta and their leader Blue.

The raptors Charlie and Echo were released in set 75920. Echo has an olive green back and sand green markings. Raptor Charlie has a dark green back with lime markings. Both dinosaurs are very collectable. They have raised a lot in price since the release of the sets. Expect to pay around 35 USD for one even in used condition. They are famous raptor but not so famous as to have been released in multiple boxes. Which is probably what makes them more expensive than the more famous raptor Blue.

The next set with velociraptors is LEGO box 75917. It contains the raptors Delta and Blue. Blue has a dark green back and dark blue markings. Delta has an olive green back with tan markings. Both raptors are a bit cheaper than the above raptors. You can find them for around 22 USD.

LEGO junior set 10757 has an unnamed raptor in lime color with a green back. The set features Owen and is belongs to the Jurassic World theme. Since the color does not match any of Owen’s original raptors, we will assume that this is another raptor that did not appear in the movie. This raptor is still easy to get at the moment of writing. Since the raptor is unnamed, it will probably not be as popular as the four raptor above. It is still a nice raptor to have and necessary if you want a complete LEGO raptor collection.

With the Jurassic World II – Fallen Kingdom movie, LEGO released 2 sets with the velociraptor Blue in it. Set 75928 that has a scene about catching blue and set 75930 Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate. This set has the raptor Blue fighting the Indoraptor at the Lockwood Estate. We won’t include the Indoraptor as it does not belong in the group of Velociraptors. The raptor Blue has a sand green back this time with dark tan legs. If you can choose only one raptor, this is the one to have in our opinion. It looks great, is reasonably priced and depicts a famous raptor.

In 2018, LEGO also released a set containing a raptor from the Jurassic park I movie. LEGO set 75932 has the scene were the raptor chases Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler and the 2 children in Jurassic Park. The raptor has a medium dark skin with a dark brown back and markings.

There are two sets with 2 different raptor crew members. Set 70826 Rex’s Rex-treme Offroader! which has a dark blue raptor wearing a canon to face the plananimalswith Emmet and Rex.

Rex Dangervest has names for all his raptors. He has a raptor named Cobra, Ripley, Connor and one he calls the other one. Unfortunately, LEGO did not specify which raptors are in the box. Maybe you guys can help to decide what the names of the raptors are in both sets, by leaving a comment?
