Great set but very disappointing...
" I must first say that I have been waiting years for LEGO to partner with Universal and make Minions sets. They are now finally here and wow what a great set! The minifigures are brilliant, simple yet detailed. I like the fact that you get three minifigures in this set but would have preferred all three minifigures to be in the same "classic" Minions blue dungarees outfit. The larger brick-built minions are superb! Very detailed considering they are fairly small. I love that they open up and have a mini lair inside based on that Minions personality which gives the Minions even more playability using the minifigures for children. They even have enough room inside to stand the minifigure inside and close the doors (great to help stop children from losing the minifigures). Considering its aimed at children I would say this build is fairly challenging. Even though the piece count for this set is fairly low (compared to other larger LEGO sets) due to the nature of the build there are more smaller LEGO bricks and more intricate building steps and why I had a build time of 2+ hours but I like this. Considering this is a licenced set its great value for the number of pieces you get. The box art is very impressive and stands out the shelf, but the box could be half the size as its only half full which is not very good for the environment. There is only one thing that lets this set down... big time... The set includes instructions to build 3 minions, Kevin, Stuart and Bob which is great, however you can only build either Stuart or Bob to go with Kevin. While this is a great play feature with the set enabling children to take apart and rebuild the set but, if you want to have all 3 minions to play with at the same time you have to buy another set! I think this is purely a profit grabbing method by LEGO and nothing to do with the "Playability" of the set. This would of been much better as a slightly larger set enabling you to build all 3 Minions (the box has more than enough room for the extra pieces) or have a brick-built Bob on his own in another smaller set. So, while this set alone is great value, that changes when you have to buy another set just to be able to build 1 more Minion. Overall, this is a great, good value, playable set, just be prepared to buy 2! "
