Spiritually, today’s set, 4444 Coca-Cola Defender 2, isn’t all that different from 4452 Coca-Cola Forward 4 which I’ve already reviewed waaaay back in March. This was part of a promotional line of small sets from the World Cup frenzy in Japan several years ago.
The minifig is plain save for a thick black stripe on the front and back of the torso with the Coca-Cola logo emblazoned on the front. Clearly, this minifig is from the opposing team of 4452.
In a new-to-me observation, I really dig the print on the minifig head. There’s a level of intricacy that isn’t found in face prints today. And I say “new-to-me” because none of the elements in this polybag (save for the torso) are unique but this is the first time I’ve seen this face print.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set rocks! I don’t have much else to add to this review that I haven’t already said in the similar 4452 review. It’s a very unique minifigure as we may never see another Coca-Cola license ever 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 email@example.com 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 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.
