Review: 79100 Kraang Lab Escape

4 - 79100 Overview (Alt)

I get the honour of doing the first of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set reviews because I’m not only the sites biggest fan of the comics, but I’m also an expert on the cartoons, movies, toys…. I kid, I kid.

Actually, I’m first because Ace is busier and this is a small, easy set. I really am a big fan of the comics, original cartoon and first movie though and I have to admit that the new Nickelodeon series is now on that list as well. The storyline is quite good for a generational reboot and there are far more moments that throwback to the original comics then most of what has come in between. One of the stand out bits for me are the brief traditionally animated shots and the moments when the turtles eyes go stark white in acknowledgement of their comic book roots. Keen.

However, it could be the finest crafted cartoon of all time and it wouldn’t mean the LEGO sets based on it would be worth my time or money. Luckily, at least with this set, I think they could be.

Quick Amazon Update: Hobbit Sets Get Discounted and More TMNT Sets In Stock

Just a quick note since I’m tired. First up is Amazon selling The Hobbit sets at a 20% discount. Example: 79010 The Goblin King Battle is regularly $99.99 but it is now $79.99. 79000 Riddles for The Ring is the worst deal since they’ve already marked it up a few bucks over MSRP. After discount, the set only falls to $9.49, a whopping 50 cent discount. They’re out of 79003 An Unexpected Gathering, but you can pick up 79001 Escape from Mirkwood Spiders and 79002 Attack of the Wargs at 20% less than MSRP.

And lastly, Amazon has stocked up on some more TMNT sets. In addition to 79104 The Shellraiser Street Chase that we’ve reported previously, they also have 79101 Shredder Dragon Bike, 79102 Stealth Shell in Pursuit, and 79100 Kraang Lab Escape in stock as well. No discount on the turtle stuff unfortunately but they are brand new in every sense of the word and can make some kids very happy this Christmas.
