3366_review_21.jpg3366_review_22.jpg

But can they now get Disney Channel ? :laugh:

Ah, now for the leftovers.....not many for a change.

3366_review_23.jpg

The complete deal.....hopefully he is full of the right stuff (NO New Kids On The Block jokes O.K.)! :laugh:

Now rating time everyone.....what to give out of 5 for the following.

Design - 4/5 - pretty high, actually gave it for the van and simple launch pad with the folddown tower.

Minifig - 2/5 - what a let down - the only minus in the set is this guy...why not a guy or girl who looks like a rocket engineer or a like...not some hick motor mechanic ! :laugh:

Price - 3.5/5 - middle of the range on this one....I feel it's worth less than 25 bucks AU.

Playability - 4.5/5 - a van to load up and of course a rocket....now who's not going to play fire a Scud at Spongebob eh ? :laugh:

Parts - 3.5/5 - run of the mill pieces here, nothing new....except our new friend...the 2x4 tile....still if you want to built lots of small rockets for your army and make an assortment of vans it would be worth buying a few of these....of course when they are on sale.

Total time - 17.5/25 - not bad...but could have been a little better especially the minifig.

Well I hope you have enjoyed reading this review, you never know what I'll review next.

Brick On ! :grin:

Nice review!

Bought this set about a week ago and I agree with your ratings completely :classic:

Side note: I really don't like the 'figs face.

Great review! I think that I will just wait for the smallest set though.

Agreed. Whenever I see a picture of that mini-fig face here on EB, I have trouble making out the rims of its glasses, so it just looks like he has huge, freaky white eyes, like one of the Clone Wars mini-figs or something. Maybe it looks better in real life? I'm not sure, as I don't own one yet.

Anyway, thanks for the review! This new theme seems like a nice update to the old Space Port theme.

Nice review. The set actually looks pretty boring in my eyes, although the truck is decent.

Thanks for the review. I like the van. I think they should have used transparent blue for the satellite solar panels.

I bought this set a couple of weeks ago the first day I saw it on the shelves in my local toy store. After I built it it's been sitting on my table, and yesterday I noticed that the stickers that go on the sides of the two satellites are peeling off. It seems the edges don't want to stick to the round piece they're attached to, the stickers want to even out and not be bent. Anybody else have the same problem? If it's not just my set (which I suspect it isn't) then I have to say I'm very disappointed at TLC for making bad quality stickers. It's bad enough that they don't want to make printed parts, but if they can't make proper stickers, either, they're heading in a very wrong direction.

I wonder if there's any use in making a complaint?

They'll just send you another sheet then and 'say' they've passed on your feedback.

I had the same problem here. I complained and all they said was that it was a faulty sticker sheet and they sent a new one. Took about 3-4 weeks...then, applied the new stickers and same problem. Will likely complain again... :sad:
