Time For 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 – 75900 Mummy Museum Mystery
LOVED this build. Overall, I was a bit saddened by the Scooby Doo sets that have been released. I think I was expecting more, especially out of the Mystery Machine and the Haunted House. The Car doesn’t even hold all of the characters without modification 🙁
For a set of this size, I felt like it brought a lot to the table. You get 3 characters, well, 2 and Scooby, as well as a golden mummy tomb (great for part harvesting). There’s a little functionality in the set which is so simple, yet so much fun. The burger as the handle for the lever is cute as well. I can easily imagine a kid having hours of imaginative play with this set, and therefore, I rate it 6.5/10. I give it a somewhat low-ish rating because there wasn’t much pizazz. Buuuut, I still like it. It’s cute. And it comes with gems. Happy Building!
