Welcome aboard, 2015 units! This marks the primary overview of the brand new choices. Thankfully I’ve obtained a queue a mile lengthy which ought to take me not less than previous Bricks Cascade 2015. We’ll begin off with the brand new Creator mini units. Last 12 months TLG launched three tiny field units; Red Thunder, Power Digger, and Emerald Express. I am undecided if we have to count on a 3rd field set in June or if that is it for the 12 months. Sorry Creator, your division is taking a 33% lower.
The field and directions present which you could additionally construct a private hydroplane and a sailboat. The hydroplane is OK, the sailboat (or catamaran, I suppose) may be very intelligent. I did not trouble to construct both of these fashions, however I did try a helicopter. It appears so widespread for airplanes and helicopters to interchange their components with one another that I questioned why TLG designers did not give it a strive. Then I attempted attaching overhead rotors and realized that perhaps they had tried. Dud.
This sea airplane makes use of a few of the newer components and one model new one. Tim over at New Elementary lined the 1×2 plate with opposing handles final month. There are additionally some inverted curved slopes and child bows. The new dealt with plate is used to connect the pontoon meeting in a moderately distinctive manner. Were it not for a 1×6 cross member between the 2 pontoons, this connection would remind me of Goofy on skis. Maybe somebody obtained enthusiastic about utilizing new components (not one thing that the Creator division can fee) and was bored with utterly brick constructed options. Whatever the explanation, it is an surprising however nice little connection.
The entire construct is way stubbier than the field artwork would lead me to imagine. Maybe the Creator division needed to get in on some Chibi? Oh wait, they tried that final 12 months with some non splendid outcomes. Okay, undecided what the deal is however two of those stacked on prime of one another would nearly match into an ideal dice.
