There is one major deficiency to today’s set, 30391 Rapunzel’s Lantern Boat, and that is the absence of Flynn Rider.
Of course, the source material that inspired this set may not be from the Tangled movie but could be from any of the other animated features available on Disney+. Searching for “Tangled” you’re served 5 titles with the word “Tangled” in it. I’m not about to go through all of them to see if I’m right, so let’s just assume this is from the main movie.
Now, like I said in the beginning, this set is missing Flynn Rider. That’s the biggest knock against this set. Sure I could point out that at no point in the movie is Rapunzel ever left alone on boat with Pascal.
Nor is the boat decked out with flowers. This set seems to take some cues from the Friends polybag design language which is plastering a thing with flowers because LEGO seems to think girls like flowers everywhere, even in places where it doesn’t make sense.
And there certainly wasn’t a dedicated storage area for a hairbrush. None of these things are true about the source material. Sure I could point out all these negatives and slap a thumbs down on this thing and call it day but you know what, this is actually a nice set.
There is no doubt in my mind that any fan of Tangled also liked Pascal. And out of all the scenes from the movie, having them both on a boat makes the most sense. It’s a complete scene with the main character and her pet. And plus, no LOOSE THINGS. My only legit complaint would be that I’m not a fan of the way the lantern is affixed to the front:
One slight nudge can easily misalign it but at least it’s not loose.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
Having Flynn Rider included in this already excellent set would have dramatically increased its value but alas, young teens will have to re-enact the kissing scene some other way.
