Fans eagerly awaiting the first reveal of Jurassic World‘s newest dinosaurs are getting a sneak peak from one of the film’s merchandisers, as the Lego versions of the prehistoric predators have leaked online.
According to Groove Bricks, a Chinese store called Toabao published images of seven dinosaurs that will be included in Lego’s first wave for Jurassic World in 2015. Though there were no details accompanying the leaked images, the Lego sets nevertheless reveal new insight into the dinosaurs featured in the film, particularly Jurassic World‘s primary antagonist, the D. Rex.
As the Inquisitr has previously reported, the plot of Jurassic World purportedly revolves around a functioning version of the island first featured in Jurassic Park. According to the earliest reports, the owners and scientists behind the park tamper with DNA to create a new kind of dinosaur, unknown in the fossil record. The creation of the D. Rex is rumored to lead to the kind of chaos that audiences originally saw in the first Jurassic Park.

As Scified observes, the images were not released officially by Universal or Lego. They point out, however, that the D. Rex model matches descriptions of what the dinosaur is expected to look like in Jurassic World, featuring red eyes and translucent skin.

The leaked images also depict several other dinosaurs, potentially hinting at the content of Jurassic World‘s plot. In addition to the D. Rex, a Tyrannosaurus Rex is represented in another large figure, while smaller ones reveal four distinctly different velociraptors, and an even smaller predatory dino that could either be a juvenile raptor or a procompsognathus, which was featured at the beginning of the second Jurassic Park movie.

In addition to the leaked Lego sets, fans have noted that the marketing campaign for Jurassic World is beginning in earnest. A viral site for Jurassic World, Masrani Global, went online on November 17, as did the film’s official site. Fan Site Jurassicworld.org has also reported rumors that the trailer for the film is set to debut online sometime in the next few weeks, though no official statement has corroborated those assertions.
Jurassic World is in theaters on June 12, 2015.
