So, let’s see what the tally is up through yesterday shall we?
- Theme: thumbs up / thumbs down
- Star Wars: 3/2
- Harry Potter: 3/2
- City: 3/2
Star Wars and City came up roses, at least. Let’s see what the day has in store for us.
LEGO Star Wars Day 6
[Ace] I think this is that evolved B-wing troop transport we saw in The Force Awakens. I’m like 90% sure and I’m too lazy to go look it up. It’s okay. It gets the job done, but it feels super flimsy. Not a fan.
LEGO Harry Potter Day 6
[Eric] Ace raises a good point with his winners / stinkers tally above – is a minifig a winner just because it’s a minifig? The Harry Potter of Day 1 was nice because it’s an exclusive ‘fig, but Day 6’s Professor McGonagall…isn’t. She appears in 75954 Hogwarts Great Hall, a set that currently is still avaliable on Lego’s shop. A $99 set, but still. It’s a tough call. Anyway, it’s a nice figure, though nothing to really write home about. In fact, I’m more of a fan of 2010’s design than this one. At least that one had robes and a cape, like she did in the movies.
LEGO City Day 6
[Nick] Teenage mutant ninja pine trees, teenage mutant ninja pine trees, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA PINE TREES, Hero in a water pan, PINE TREE POWER. Sorry
not sorry, but this is just… I don’t know. It’s creative, I’ll give it that, but the topper is just so out of proportion that you can’t help but look at it. This is the sort of build that could have benefitted from maybe a half dozen more parts, maybe even just putting a green cone at the top to provide some more height. It’s not a dud, but it’s not a hit either.
