This set, 70839 The Rexcelsior, was announced back in London Toy Fair a couple of weeks ago. And yes, I am just now getting to posting these; better late then never I say. Priced at $149.99, this is the regular retail flagship set, no pun intended, of the line. Chock full of dark blue elements, The Rexcelsior might just make a good starting point for my Galaxy Patrol army. It might just!
Official fact sheet, product images below.
Also, I think the set name should include a ‘!’ character at the end. It just feels right like that.
One thing about these press releases is that all they ever seem to contain is a box shot, the basic contents shot, and the rest are miniigs. I get that minifigs are a big draw for some people, but this is a children’s toy. Why not focus on some hidden compartments or the interior. We seem to get more of those kinds of pictures with the adult-oriented Modular Buildings line than we do with the kid-targeted sets. Seems kind of backwards to me.
