Today’s set, 30546 Krypto saves the day, is very weird.
First of all, I don’t understand why Supergirl’s dog’s name is Krypto. Named after her home planet? Sure, I can buy that, but it’s also her biggest weakness, her Achilles’ heel. It’s like a kid who has a peanut allergy naming their pet hamster Peanut. (BTW, I think Peanut as a name for a hamster is a FANTASTIC idea). Like, why would you do that?
Secondly, this is obviously the classic Lex Luthor v. Superman rivalry re-imagined through pets and… “Kryptomites”. But why does Krypto need a dogjet? Does he/she not have the ability to fly?
And what kind of cyrstal is the jet carrying? That’s not… kryptonite is it? Does the dog have any super powers at all?
And why is the name of the set in sentence case and not title case? It’s weird to see “saves the day” not have initial caps. Even the toy story set “Army Men on Patrol” had the letter “P” in patrol capitalized. Just weird and a bit off-putting. A minor quibble yes.
Clearly, I am not the target audience for this polybag. I’m sure there’s some lore somewhere that I would need to read to know what’s going on, or some cartoon I would need to watch. Does the dog speak in secret like how Stewie from Family Guy only talks to Brian? And what the heck is a Kryptomite? And who engineers their little jetpacks? Questions abound in this polybag!
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set sucks! I’m not a fan. I’m not the target market either. Even if I was, it’s just nonsense what is going on in this set.
Yeah I’m falling behind again. I need to get motivated again.
There’s no sponsor this week, and with sponsorships lasting a whole week, you can get plenty of exposure for mere pennies. Pennies I say! Want to sponsor a review? Send me a message to firstname.lastname@example.org or hit me up on discord of the polybag set you have that you want me to review. If selected, in exchange for the set you’ll get a mention right here in the review post and a link to your website or social media account or just about anything else.. Nearly free advertising, so what’s stopping you?
You Can Win This And Every Other Polybag I Review This Year
I’ll be raffling every polybag I review this year in one big lot, all 260 sets (with the possibility of more). Each set will be individually stored in a ziploc baggie complete with the extra pieces, instructions, and the actual polybag bag it came in. The cost of a raffle ticket is just $1 USD and you can enter as many times as you want. Send a PayPal payment to email@example.com for $1 USD for every ticket you want to purchase. DO NOT send one payment for multiple entries i.e. do not send one $5 USD payment for five tickets; five $1 USD payments must be made instead. Raffle is open to everyone in the world except where raffles are illegal. Be sure to put “POLYBAG RAFFLE” in the notes section of the payment in order to be entered successfully. Winner will be drawn sometime early January 2023 and contacted at the PayPal email address the payment was sent from to arrange for delivery. For a running list of all the sets that you can win, check this Google spreadsheet.
