Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see? I see a blogger me. Today’s final put up of the 12 months additionally wraps up the Series 5 Friends Animals. These are neat little vignettes that spotlight a specific animal and are an entry stage set into the Friends subtheme. They begin at US$three.99, typically you will discover them for US$four.99. The units common round 40 items plus a number of extras right here and there.
Brown Bear’s River was one in every of my favourite vignettes. The bear cub is a pleasant distinctive mould which additionally exhibits up in Sand Blue within the Jungle Bridge Rescue set. I used to be drawn to the easy but efficient design, the sq. base, and the animation!
The fish is linked to a bar by way of a droid arm. You could make him bounce the falls with a flick of a finger. Nature purists could be aware that he’s moderately excessive above the water, nearly as if he’s flying. Hey, it is the thought that counts, proper?
The base of the construct is created by stitching three totally different coloured and measurement plates collectively. A 4×6 medium azure plate for the water, a inexperienced 2×6 plate behind for grass, and a lime 1×6 plate to the facet. Since the entrance is the view facet, I believe the lime plate would have been higher changed with one other medium azure one. The construct up for the roiling falls is properly accomplished with some curved bricks and trans blue and white items to present the impression of froth.
The tree is a pleasant contact however easy. While a number of extra leaves would have been good, if something, I’ve discovered that TLG simply features a token arrange and lets your creativeness fill in the remaining. Perhaps that is the issue with us crucial AFOLs; we have misplaced our creativeness and anticipate actual life perfection. New 12 months’s decision maybe?
The solely critique I might need is a small hole that seems behind the falls. Thankfully with the additional items you possibly can fill out the falls somewhat extra. And the additional droid arm? Maybe a bone outdoors of the bear’s cave.
