Tent tenting has come a good distance because the daybreak of the motor age. From “don’t touch it!” canvas to area age polymer materials, from searching and campfires to MRE’s and watching a campfire on the 50″ TV in your Winnebago, it seems to have solely gotten costlier.
LEGO has an attention-grabbing foray into textiles. Mostly ship sails, in addition they create capes and flags. The tent first appeared in 1998 within the Sphinx’ Secret Surprise and Extreme Team Challenge. It got here round once more briefly in 2008 for Indiana Jones. Now it has made one other temporary cameo through each the Arctic Explorers and Friends strains.
If you are like me, you most likely at all times go tenting in a skirt and share your loaf of bread and rooster leg along with your canine. Or possibly that is glamping the place off display we may see the cameras and mattress-n-breakfast signal. No, this set is just a little creepier than that.
First let me rag on the tent just a little. This set had an preliminary gross sales worth of $15 however TLG could not appear to promote any. No marvel, there are solely 39 items and no freaking extras. You would assume a worth of $5, proper? Not right here. Then the value dropped to $9 and I acquired suckered into shopping for one for this evaluation. Shortly thereafter, the value has been caught at $7.48. Still too excessive. Even at 10c per half, We’re speaking $three.70 for that piece of material.
Really? Better but, my 6 12 months previous requested why it seemed like vomit. True story. Here’s a problem: discover all 13 of the studs within the LEGOflage.
Here’s the place it will get creepy although. The directions look like incorrect. When you construct the set accurately, You’ll see that Naya is sporting a black hat to guard her from the Blair Witch. Meanwhile, her cornstalk buddy is conducting surveillance to find and kill that cameraman as soon as and for all. The canine seems to be guarding the meals but it surely’s actually a lure. Don’t go close to that mutt. The tent is fairly empty, however that is solely as a result of they simply eliminated the our bodies.
Gave me the shudders.
