Bargain Bricks: Episode 12 – Triceratops Trapper

Last week, we took a look at Raptor Chase (5884) from the 2011 LEGO® Dino theme. Interestingly, many of the figurine molds seen in Jurassic World dinosaurs actual hail from Dino. For Bargain Bricks: Episode 12, I have another set from the theme to share. This time, we move up a set number to 5885, Triceratops Trapper. I am not going to lie, I wanted this set solely for the triceratops. However, the vehicle is not bad either. More importantly though, I now have every adult triceratops figurine ever produced by the LEGO® Group. As if that was not awesome enough, I paid $35 for the whole set. Incidentally, it originally retailed for $64.99 CAD, and it is retired. Catch the episode below for more!

Until next time,

-Tom
