Review: 6857 - The Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape

60 posts in this topic

I got this set and a bunch of other stuff for christmas, so enjoy the review.

I am so sorry for the photos, some of the are "too sharp" and some are a bit blurry, but you can still see what's on them :tongue:

The official MSRP is $39.99, and it is a pretty fair price.

I won't give you too much text, trying to draw most of the attention on the pictures, so you would tell me, what should I improve in my photographing and cropping/clarifying.

The size of a box is not too big and there is much less space inside than usually. Most of the bags don't have a lot of O2 in them, so they don't blow up when you step on them :wacko:

The back of the box shows you most of the functions of a set.

Here's what was inside.

That is so sad... :cry_sad: Look what the traveling of the box did to my comic book...

The ripped comic book.

The instructions booklet.

Stickers. They are very nicely printed.

The first bag.

What is inside of it.

6572838033_0464c56433_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Look, a FREE brick separator! It came with it. I am so lucky I didn't buy it for five bucks!

6572838151_0c99cbcfd5_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Capes were nice and neat packed inside of our little box.

6572838253_d398ae6295_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

The new parts.

6572838361_4cdc7dbc66_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Minifigures.

The Batman.

Even though the prints on all the figures are nearly horrible, I am closing my eyes on it because of how cool the figs are!

6572838535_64b63d8370_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

TLC, thanks for leaving the strip on BOTH SIDES!!!! Why can't you just make it like a Catwoman's face? One side with silvery eyes and another with the normal face! I can understand why. If you played Batman: Arkham City, you never see the Batman without a mask. I mean you see Bruce Wayne, who is the Batcave set, but never the batman... And the Catwoman always jumps around without the goggles on. You can see her face.

The back-print is nicely done.

6572839053_3abcd3d2e6_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Robin.

This is my favorite figure of all in this set. He has the hair of Obi-Wan from the Clone Wars, a very cool, horribly printed face, and a torso, which I always wanted. Plus, he has a black cape, the shape of which is similar to Batman's cape's shape.

6572839207_885b49baaf_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

The idea of the second face is nearly awesome.

6572839347_e00de7e6eb_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Pretty good back print.

6572839461_78150a92e6_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

The Batbike or whatever it's called :hmpf:

The cape fits perfectly behind the seat!

Spare parts from the first bag.

The second bag.

6572841855_b7c1a79038_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

The little baggie is totally filled out!

6572842419_6cdbc690a5_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Get ready for the mistake #1.

BAM! If you look at the Riddler's face on the box, it differs from the face in the little register room, or whatever it's supposed to be. But when you open the set, you see two similar heads!

BAM! BAM! BAM!

6572842871_a304b19b66_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

6572842735_0cf2c896cf_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

But when I saw, how awesome the fig is, I closed my eyes on mistake number one. The hat is very nice. And you get two!!!

6572843049_380925de4c_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

He looks bad. :devil:

6572843177_03385d1975_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Nice-done back print.

6572843303_69f3c395a2_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Cool parts from the second bag.

6572843397_1067131df4_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

And the first part of the building, from bag two.

6572843657_0972803e0b_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Get ready for mistake number two.

BAM! The picture on the box doesn't have a 2x2 green brick under the "cashier". The picture of the box again.

6572844553_a1eb909877_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

6572842735_0cf2c896cf_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

It's fine. An extra 2x2 brick is never bad for me. :tongue:

The part of the building.

6572844909_4c983fd249_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Extra parts for the second bag.

6572844999_b45cf5bb4c_z.jpg

The Third bag.

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

(not a very nice picture.)

6572846049_f2ddcd6784_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

A filled out bag again.

6572846491_31d69070c2_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

These parts have their own packaging

6572846759_24140cffde_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Pieces of interest.

6572847111_dbd18ef1d5_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Look at the length of the rope! It's huge!!!

6572847211_407d65d1fb_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

The Joker!!!!!!!!!!

6572847497_fb0fb03630_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

I really like this figure. It's different from the old one and it's even better. If LEGO figures had chins, it would be a total copy of the Joker from Arkham City.

Back print.

6572847895_4dcff3d379_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

The "device" of his own.

6572848035_4603494125_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Harley Quinn

This figure is almost the same thing as her old version, except for the face and the legs.

6572851459_334792060d_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

The back print isn't very neat :sceptic:

6572851615_8ed8aef794_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Her "other" face.

6572851715_5e3448a65b_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

If you put all the pieces together here's what you'll get.

6572848235_4392d750bf_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

A real working crane.

6572848651_1dbfa26499_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Harley's hammer.

6572849037_624d4f8878_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

The shaking floor.

6572849571_4b581460c3_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

A falling floor...

6572849865_2776543f30_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

All the spare parts.

6572851843_e159ddbbe7_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

And get ready for it...

Everything together!!!!!...

6572852105_46235a34a7_z.jpg

6857 Review by AlexScammer, on Flickr

Design 10/10 This is perfect. The funhouse is really close to the "real" one.

Parts 9/10 They are nice, some colors aren't fitting the "stage", which is kind of bothering me. Let's take off one point for that.

Figs 7/10 Even though those are the "super collector's" figures, their face prints are horrible! I guess they are the only parts that are made in China... :sadnew:

Build 10/10 Very simple, but sometimes "challenging". Easy build (:

Playability 10/10 The playability is 100% no part of the set is "unplayable". Well, maybe the Brick Separator is the only thing :laugh:

And it is 46/50. I really waited for the better prints on the figures. It kinda disappointed me... But the set is awesome. Every LEGO Batman fan, or just Batman fan should have it.

That's pretty much it, tell me what do you think about the set, the review and my photographing.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

Alex. :classic:

Thanks for the review 'Alex', this set is at the top of my son's (high up on mine too :blush: ) shopping list....funny it's not in the Oz first half catalogue ? :look:

I feel that there for the price more playability in this set....like you can be falling and then it's hammer time ! :laugh:

It's just when I crop my pictures, I add a little light to them. And it's just... Not all the prints are done badly. Joker's and Harley's faces are totally fine! But the right side of Robin's scared side looks like a spill or something...

And Batman and Riddler have those little black dots, which are pretty much spills all over they faces...

Thanks.

I am so sure you should get this set. It is nearly the best Batman set ever. :tongue: Yeah, on the box they are perfectly fine. You have to look closely.

This set is much better then the Batcave. So if you will be choosing between this, Battle over Gotham City, and the Batcave, I would take one this one.

Thanks.

Nice review! Although Lego sometimes does make mistakes, they usually don't turn out that bad.

Wow, great review, AlexScammer! I was excited to receive this on Christmas Eve, and after the build, immediately noticed an error: The brown 1x4 tile on top of the arch in the middle, is green on the box! Wouldve loved an extra green tile....oh well. Never seen so many errors in a set either.

An excellent review! I think I might pass on this one, in favor of a slightly more modern (aka Nolan) Batman.

Great review. My son and I built this on Christmas Day, and it was an easy, fun build. The characters included are great, and the set has a lot of playability. The structure itself is smaller than I thought it would be, but definitely worth the price.

Wow, definitely one of the best Batman sets. You must complain to customer service though; those prints are horrendous! :angry:

Indeed.

Did you get the smaller set also? The Catwoman's Chase? I suggest you would.

It is and I should complain. Thank you for reminding me about it.

This set IS the best one of the new "Super Heroes" series. Looks like it though :laugh:

Ahh! I just tried to write to LEGO Customer Support, and it says that parts are "unable to be replaced"! :angry:

I was thinking about purchasing this set, but I wanted to see what other Eurobricks members thought of it first. Now I'm sold. Great review! :sweet:

Well, I haven't yet been banned. :tongue:

Besides, I am not one of those troll guys, who spam, spam, and spam.

I post many MOCs and reviews, so I am a bit helpful (I hope so...) to the forum.

It seriously stinks that your printing was bad and your comic book ripped.

I'm not sure if the box has errors or the set has errors, but either way, it's weird.

I'm wondering, are the figs made in China? I'm not sure how to tell.

I am pretty sure I won't (get banned of course), because only the kids that are a "threat" for EuroBricks.

But I will get my mom to call.

Indeed sir.

Figs are probably the only thing made in China.
