There are some things that are so bad it actually circles the globe and ends up kind of good in a way. Take B-movies for example. Some of them are so ridiculous they end up being entertaining for reasons entirely other than what was intended. Sharknado, Snakes on a Plane, and Plan 9 From Outer Space are just some examples. Today’s polybag, 40026 Statue of Liberty, is the Sharknado of polybags.
It is hilariously bad. It looks like a table scraps build. It can almost pass as a bishop in some bizarre looking LEGO chess board moc. It looks like someone tried to build a tree but halfway up they decided to try and build car and then changed their mind once again to try and stuck random pieces on there.
You know what it doesn’t look like? Lady Liberty, that’s what. And like what is that part in the front with the single offset cheese slope supposed to be? Her chest?
Things from the back don’t look any better either.
Sadly, the best thing about this build has nothing to do with the Statue of Liberty at all, but the dais she rests on.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set sucks! Absolutely no redeeming qualities unless of course you’re into basic-as-basic-can-be tan elements. And if that’s the case, you’re STILL better off not getting this set. Despite me talking this set up as a cult classic B-movie equivalent, this thing still sucks. After all, Sharknado is still a bad movie.
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.
