After receiving a birthday gift in the mail yesterday (perfect timing too! :laugh: ) I discovered this little critter packed inside the box. So I just decided, "what the heck, might as well take half an hour to review it :grin: " Note that this isn't part of my reviews for the Academy.

The Bag: Front

Just as the other numerous promotional sets you can find here and there, the lizard is packed in a nice little polybag.

The Bag: Back

The reverse has your fun legal and copyright information, as well as a polypropylene plastic recycling symbol. Recycle and the lizards all around the world will be happy :thumbup:

The Instructions

These little instruction fold outs are adorable compared to their larger booklet counterparts :wub: (and then to the damned textbook that comes with the Death Star :wacko: ).

The Instructions: Front and Back

The instructions are simple and very easy for kids to comprehend. And of course, the little ads on the back will hook them (and the AFOL) onto other sets in the diverse Creator line.

The Pieces

The only things worth noting really are the green hinge pieces and the lime green cheese slopes - unless you love green of course, in which case just about everything will be of great value to you!

Design and Playability

With his big googly eyes and that red tongue sticking out, he's a cute little critter who's looking for some friends to play with.

Crawling on their stomachs is how it's done in the world of the wile.

For some reason this reminds me of the Japanese LEGO Muji kits. Maybe it's the cute factor? Regardless, origami cranes will make fine play dates for our lil' lizard.

Conclusion

I won't give this a traditional grade out of a ten point scale only because I know it'd rank very poorly. Instead, I'll just conclude by saying, why complain about a set that's free? :laugh: I wouldn't make an order online over 35 dollars with the sole intent on getting this set, but hey, if you just so happen to be making one before the end of April, expect to find a small extra bag of happiness to tag along in the delivery box.

Thanks for reading :classic:

Nice promo, but no more. At least it's a decent source of green hinge plates. I find it peculiar they would print a 1:1 picture of the eye, when you can see the pieces right beside it in the bag!

Even for a promo set, you really did a great review on this one -R8- especially with the excellent photos! :thumbup: And surprisingly, I find this neat little polybagged set one of the cutest I've seen. Instantly recognizable basic frog model and nice source of green hinge plates too.
