Time For LEGO Christmas Reviews!
40093-1 Large Snowman
The SNOT (Stud Not On Top) building techniques used on this set were nice. I also really liked how the scarf comes together. As I was building, I was wondering why there was a red piece in what seemed to be a random place, then it hit me. Overall however, I wasn’t in love with this set. I actually preferred the look of the mini snowman in 40124. Truth be told, I bought this set because I got the reindeer, and they just seemed like a pair. I think this would be a great build for a little kid, and I must say, it makes an excellent addition to Christmas and winter-land displays.
40092-1 Large Reindeer
This reindeer is simply cute. There’s a hidden cross piece that allows it to hold the present, and well, it’s just cute. The antlers, the feet, I just love this little thing. What more can I say? It’s great to add to your winter and Christmas displays, and people of all ages will enjoy this one. In fact, I wouldn’t mind making another one from spare parts so the extra present isn’t just sitting around. I will say however, the party hat seemed a bit out of place for me.
LEGO Review – 31032 Creator Red Creatures
Overall, for $15.00, this is a GREAT purchase. If you’re into part harvesting, then the colours are spot on in this set. If you’re into clever builds, you may want something a little more advanced, or maybe the go-kart with working steering wheel.If you’re considering getting into mech building, I have to say, this is an epic set to get you going. I know there are other actual mech sets out there, but this one will also get your creative juices flowing. Read More
LEGO Review – Creator 31031 Rain Forest Animals
Being the mature grown up that I am, I decided to pass up this set simply because it was small, simple, and I’m not a huge fan of animals. Then, by way of the internet, I learned that the bird poops! I mean really, could I ask for anything more mature and clever than that? Needless to say, I had a grin on my face as soon as I opened this set. I do want to add, I didn’t just build the bird because it poops, but also because this variation of the 3-in-1 seems to be the most interesting. The fish and chameleon seem like a bit of an afterthought by the set designers. I can totally see a group of them sitting in a room, ecstatic that the bird has so much functionality, then saying, wait, guys, it’s supposed to be a 3-in-1. Quick, think of something else we can make! Read More
