The name of today’s polybag, 30103 Car, is about as exciting as the set itself.
This week’s set of reviews is sponsored by Brandon Griffith, one of the best LEGO artists I know. He works behind the scenes on the LEGO Masters show. He’s done statues for Comic Con, live installations, and has appeared in numerous art shows. You can follow him on Instagram at @brandongriffithart. He’s sponsored today’s set, as well as the ones you’ll see for the rest of this week. Thanks, Brandon!

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 for the entire week. Nearly free advertising, so what’s stopping you? And now onto the review.
This is the unofficial Geo Metro Convertible LEGO set. For those of you not old enough to know what a Geo Metro Convertible is, it was the cheapest convertible car you can get during the early ’90’s. If that was the sole feature you wanted in a car, that it be a convertible, and you didn’t care about things like reliability, then the Geo Metro was perfect for you.
I will give this car props though. So few LEGO polybag cars have sideview mirrors, it’s actually probably the best feature. And that’s just sad right?
Well, it’s true. This is a crappy car. It even has the hubcap style wheel covers.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set rocks! You know, as much as I hate this car and the real world model it’s based on, I have to admit, it’ll fit right into a Friends-themed layout. It’s small enough to even pass as a go-kart, or one of those electric toy cars you from FAO Schwartz or Toys’R’Us, you know, back in the day when they were in business. And that’s the only reason why it gets the thumbs up, the way it can fit into alongside any Friends set. And just barely. I’m feeling generous tonight.
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.
