This is I’m fairly certain my last pod.
It’s got a lenticular decal on the front.
But a Chicken… Skater? And a Rabbit Skater sidekick. They’re like some weird after-school special of a crime-fighting duo.
According to the bag, you’re supposed to layout the pod horizontally which I believe is a first. On the side that has the plate built-in, you build what looks like a quarter pipe next to a babbling brook and some lush flora. It would be a tree stump for all we know. Oh, and there’s a trophy inexplicably placed in the side there.
the other side show… what I think is a dried riverbed, or some kind of post-apocalyptic abandoned skate park. I can’t tell. The chalk markings showing an egg and hash marks is a bit puzzling. The colorful oblong shapes are supposed to be Easter eggs I think. Given all of that, I can’t quite put a narrative together that makes any sense. Perhaps this is the side that the skating duo skate on, and not the build side, because nothing on the build side is conducive to skating other than a very small area of a partial tree stump.
I think, though, that anyone getting this set is doing it for the kid in the chicken costume, skates or no skates. The minifig is just great in a pale chick-yellow deco. This pod set was the only way to get this version of the chicken minifig. It’s really the only saving grace because nothing else about this pod makes any sense.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set rocks! Yeah, I guess it does. Pretty little chicken minifig, how I covet thee.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
