LEGO Review – 70812 LEGO Movie Creative Ambush
I have a confession to make. I hate most of the LEGO Movie sets. When they first came out, before I saw the movie, I thought they were the most hideous, useless, joke of line of sets I’d ever seen. There were no gorgeous finished, polished looking sets to choose from. I actually thought LEGO was losing its edge.
Then I saw the movie. It changed my outlook, a bit. Not too much, but enough for me to know that I really wanted the Unikitty figures. Oh, and I HAD to have a Benny.
This set had neither a Benny or Kitty, but Bob’s Kebabs… I happened to see several people online modifying their kebab truck into cool food truck looking creations. In addition to the pieces, I knew I wanted this one. The most disappointing thing however was learning that most of the cool pieces I really wanted were sticker based, and, the stickers were missing from my box and LEGO was so awesome to send me a new one quickly.
The build was eh. Nothing special. The stickers were eh. Would have rather had them pre-printed. The fact that I haven’t had time to modify my creation into something cool, eh. What can I say but eh. Overall, this is in no way one of my more favorite sets. And yes, I accept the fact that I am a Lord Business.
LEGO Review – 70817 Batman & Super Angry Kitty Attack
Before buying this set, I had it in mind for quite a long time. Each time I went to the local LEGO store, they were all out. I finally scored one. Truth be told, I really just wanted to collect all of the Kitties. However, I am a little “bummed” that I had to purchase Astro Kitty. I just don’t like the spaceship…
At only 115 pieces, this set is a very quick build, but for the figures, it’s a great price.The build itself isn’t complicated, but what’s nice are the little missiles in the front, and the top that pops off. It’s a nice amount of play-ability, especially for children. I am quite pleased having yet another Kitty to add to the collection. I am a bit overwhelmed however by the number of Batman Figs I now have. This makes at least number 9. In fact, I know there are more lurking around somewhere.
I know there are some fans out there that like to collect everything in a particular series, and I’m sure that has lead many adults to purchase the set. If you’re not one of these people, save up for something better. The micro-manager is cool, but not really a necessity. Bottom-line: if you want an Angry Kitty, get this set.
