The only saving grace of this set is that it’s green.
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!
Want to sponsor a review? Send a pic 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 for the entire week. Nearly free advertising, so what’s stopping you? And now onto the review.
Specifically, you get those handy hinge plates in green. I know, it’s not that impressive.
The eyes and head are the worst part. The eyes use green headlight bricks with a black 1×1 round plate sandwiched by a white dish. The effect of this has the eyes float away from the oversized head. They could have used a regular 1×1 brick with a stud on one side to make the eye lie flush against the side of the head and that would have improved things slightly.
I only say slightly because even if they did do that, the head is still way too big. Maybe it’s a baby lizard? Baby animals tend to have oversized heads compared to the rest of their body so maybe that’s what they were going for.
The tongue is not centered.
And neither is the tail. I’m sure there was a way to use jumper plates to center them but maybe I am expecting too much? I mean it’s a cheap polybag, smaller than normal sized. I don’t know what I was expecting, but something better than we actually got would have been nice.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set sucks! And it sucks for all the reasons above. It’s not a long review. Go back and read it if you’re skip-to-the-end kind of person. I’m just being lazy and don’t want to try and write up a concluding paragraph on a set this mediocre.
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.
