Egg-sy Canoe Ride

One of my more favorite LEGO magazines currently is the Jurassic World one because of the nice little builds they come with and the May issue doesn’t disappoint on that front, either.

LEGO Magazine, Jurassic World, May 2020, Cover

The magazine comes with a nice little rendition of a canoe built from some simple inverted wedge pieces in Dark Bluish Gray and some Dark Blue parts. Getting the same Owen figure for the umpteenth time on the other hand is kind of boring. I really wish they’d use a different character every now and then. At least there’s an egg in Tan, which strangely enough is a color that has barely been used so far. Most sets still use the plain white ones, so that’s definitely a positive. Short side note: Around Easter I was actually wondering why LEGO haven’t managed to bring out the egg in all colors in some sort of decoration pack. Seems so simple and would probably sell like crazy at that time of year…

The rest of the issue feels a bit lackluster, to be honest, with the comic being an example of taking a lot of pages to tell nothing and the puzzles/ activities being a bit too trivial for my taste. On the face of it I could come to like the poster with the Velociraptor gang, but unfortunately the text has been lumped on it so tastelessly and clumsily it completely ruins it. without the names and the tag line plastered all over it would look pretty nice, though. Well, maybe another time…
