LEGO® has produced a variety of skeleton-themed minifigures and sets throughout the years.

Some of the skeleton LEGO® minifigures have special features, such as glow-in-the-dark bones, specialized headgear, or accessories that fit the theme in which they are included. These minifigures are often used to create spooky or eerie scenes in LEGO® builds or to populate themed sets that involve graveyards, haunted houses, or other supernatural scenarios.

Dinosaur Skeletons

LEGO® has also produced sets featuring dinosaur skeletons, allowing fans to explore the world of paleontology and create their own prehistoric displays. These sets typically include detailed, brick-built dinosaur skeletons that accurately represent various species of dinosaurs, such as the Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, and Pteranodon.

Some of these dinosaur skeleton sets are part of the LEGO® Ideas theme, where fan-submitted designs are turned into official LEGO® sets. An example of this is the LEGO® Ideas 21320 Dinosaur Fossils set, which includes brick-built skeletons of a T. rex, Triceratops, and Pteranodon, along with a paleontologist minifigure and display stands for each model.

Dinosaur skeletons can also be found in other LEGO® themes, such as the Jurassic World series, which features a combination of brick-built skeletons and fossil-themed elements in some of the sets.
