Welcome to a brand new 12 months with new units, new critiques, and new cage matches. In my thoughts, new is overrated. It all the time encourages us to spend extra, do extra, and never recognize what we have already got. “A pet capuchin, squee! [94 hours later] A pet caracal, squee! Go away, monkey.” But newness should be embraced lest you be relegated to a musty previous dinosaur sitting within the nook.
So sufficient of the soapbox derby, on with the brand new!
The second construct on this set is the Small Car from approach again in 2010. When it got here out I assumed it might be a cute addition to my miniscule City assortment. I modified it to drag a minifig sized teardrop trailer. I could not move on the automotive and was thrilled to see it within the film. Now, due to the magic of promoting I’ve THREE! The second one got here from a The LEGO Movie construct at TRU the place you might construct Emmet’s automotive that remodeled to a flying automotive. And by remodel, I imply completely dissemble and rebuild. This third model has a NEW HAT! Okay, probably not however the refined variations will make a die-arduous fan need it. It’s obtained a trans-black as a substitute of trans-blue windshield. But past that, it has a RADIO that belts out 5-1/2 hours of Everything is Awesome. Neat little printed tile.
There’s a pleasant bonus included throughout the further elements. As you realize, 1×1 plates of each spherical and sq. selection are all the time included as extras. So are cheese and different tiny modeling components comparable to a horn. What’s fascinating about this set is that Unikitty’s expressions are printed one two separate components. There is an additional 1×3 brick and plate. You could make a Unikitty AND a Mini-Kitty. The better part is that you may give Unikitty 4 totally different expressions in all. Or flip her right into a 4 eyed alien. Mucho enjoyable!
As I mentioned, $15 is WELL price it. At 197 items plus the additional kitteh faces, this needs to be promoting for $25. Perhaps LEGO noticed the secondary market potential for the Vitruvius and Benny figs and sought to squash it with utter saturation. To play that card although, they’re gonna should sustain within the manufacturing facet. Oh snap!
