"...but if anything, having them for customization and models is why I buy these. I know that the minifigures theme is supposed to be all about mystery, trading, and collecting them all, but why make it so hard to collect them all with the bump codes? I think it's unfair. Go back to bar codes! So that's why I chose Very Challenging for this series.
Anyways, here's what I've collected so far: Graduate, Royal Guard, Ice Fisherman, Zookeeper (x2), Evil Dwarf, Boxer, and the Egyptian Queen. Wanted: Cavewoman, Lumberjack, Fitness Instructor, Detective, and Gangster.
I really like the collectible minifigures, but for the cost to buy just one is kind of ridiculous.
Overall, the minifigures are good quality but some are just hard to find."
"Jay would sure be jealous of Kai right about now.
Anyways this thing was easy, but fun to build. It's got all kinds of new parts including giant swords, blades at the bottom, and most noticable is Kai's new outfit. The sword holder on the back is a different style, but works similar to Dastan's (from Prince of Persia). The Kai and Rattla figures I got were very well done, and this set wasn't actually my first choice.
I was thinking about getting the Venomari Shrine, but I decided I would get it next time. Anyways, I don't have anything bad to say about it but I'm not going to upload a picture of it because it pretty much looks the same in the display picture on the product page."
"Calendar made entirely out of LEGO bricks? Check! Series 1 Cheerleader and Skater minifigures? Check! Put the two together and what do you have? This set of course!
I am very pleased with this set. When I saw this on the LEGO website, I knew I HAD to have it. So I added it to my Wish List, and went to the LEGO store in Toronto today, bought it, built it, and now it's sitting on my desk as I am writing this review.
It takes some time to build. The only thing I can see wrong with it is that every time you want to change the days (numbers) on the calendar, you have to take almost the whole thing apart (which is part of the play element, but updating it would take a bit of time). But I think everything else is fine. You get six month bricks which have one month on one side and the month after on the other side. (For example, September on Side 1 and October on Side 2).
The other thing I like about this calendar is the series 1 figures. I already have the Cheerleader (but I like to have a spare around just in case something happens to her) but during series 1 I never got the Skater and now I do, so thanks LEGO! And I think that's all I have to say about this product.
Overall, I honestly believe it was worth buying and I will recommend it to anyone I come across who is a LEGO fan.
"Alright, I've been thinking. When life gives you LEGO, don't make Legoade, make awesome LEGO creations instead! And that's exactly what I plan to do with Nya after I finish reviewing her,
While it's a good idea to be able to buy Nya seperately, I think it's a bad idea to pay for her at full price, (which varies) but luckily I got her on sale. But even so, there's not a lot to the set. Just the figure, spinner, weapons and cards.
Speaking of cards, Nya has a better selection of cards you can use for her compared to Kai by one card. Below is a photo showing what cards the ninjas can use. On the left are the ones Nya can use, on the right are the ones Kai can use, and in the middle are ones both can use (I know I goofed in the photo with the Power Ups, my bad). So Nya wins by a hair.
Anyways, I hope you found this review helpful and I hope to be back with more!"
"Impulse sets are something I really admire about LEGO. This one is no exception (I think I said something like that in an earlier review). This set is nice because it's simple. With the ADU guy's gun, you can put a put a pair of minifigure binoculars on it and it looks REALLY cool. For those who don't know what I'm talking about here's the answer (Pick a Brick>Category>Figure Accessories in Hand>Page 3>Prismatic Binoculars)
I don't know what else to say about it, but I will say I've invested a good amount of money into the Alien Conquest sets having bought this, the Tripod Invader, Alien Defender, and one Battle Pack. I think the sets are well put together, but I don't see myself buying anymore AC. It's just too expensive after a while."
"It was around the end of July when I went to LEGO Store in Toronto, ON. There I got Furno and Rocka 3.0. Both are pretty cool, but this review is all about Furno 3.0.
I like Furno 3.0 better than his 2.0 form because he doesn't come with the goofy-looking goggles. Instead, he has a helmet in the shape of a hawk head, (following the totem theme for this series) two blades, jet engines, (which pay a slight homage to Tahu Mistika) and lastly Furno's new badge. Speaking of badges, you also get a Hero Recon Team sticker.
Overall, this was very much worth my money because I spent a lot at the LEGO Store when I was there."
"I love small sets. They're inexpensive, simple to build, good for pieces, and most of all, fun. This one is NO exception.
Getting around to building it, one thing I noticed is that the bow consists of two pieces where before buying it, I thought it was one piece molded together. So my money was well spent there. Lots of rebuild value
One last bit of advice; DO NOT put it in water the moment you get it built. It does not float. The back will sink and the minifigure will be up to his waist in water. So don't give this to your little brother or sister, this belongs on your desk."
