Hello!

Last week I went on holiday with the German charter airline TUI and "oh surprise" they where selling this nice little exclusive set on board... so I take this as an opportunity to do my first LEGO set review.

Name: Glider

Number: 4442

Theme: CITY

Release: 2012 (April)

Pieces: 102

Figures: 2

Price: EUR €16, GB £15

Links ... Brickset ... Bricklink

Availability: In-flight purchase on TUI flights and from Virgin Atlantic (UK delivery only)

The box

The box is very "dense", makes sense as they don't have much room in the plane to store them. Here is a comparison shot with a regular set (176 pieces).

The Figs

2 nice figs, both with back printing. Cool hair pieces too.

Here is a shot of the instruction page showing how to take the wings off.

Conclusion

They had me at the word "exclusive"...that being said it's a nice little set that comes with cool Figs. The plane is simple but swooshable and it would be a good addition to any LEGO airport.

The car is very basic but the trailer has a clever design and the possibility to "transport" the plane adds to the playability.

Overall a winner!

Thanks for watching!

This is a very nice set. The size of the box is very interesting, especially with the comparison shot.

The plane is cool, but the shape of the car is not to my liking.

I most likely won't be able to get this set unless i brick link or ebay it though. :classic:

Excellent review, 'Yatkuu'! :sweet:

I hate how I always miss out on the airline promos. This one isn't as good as the others, but it's still a pretty cool set. :classic:

Nice review 'Yatkuu', no surprise on the box size if they are for sale on-board an aircraft (space is an issue). :wink:

The car looks too basic, glider is different for a change I guess. :blush:

Handy to have those minifigs, similar to the ones in the car and caravan set except for the guy's head.

Review On 'Yatkuu' ! :classic:

Are the minifig prints & hairpieces new?

I'm afraid there is nothing new in this set, the MF are pretty much the same as in the Set 4435 (car & camper).

Hoping BA still have these available so my wife can bring me one home from Chicago, although it's no longer available on Highlife

For some reason the car bugs me. I don't know what it is but something just seems "off" about it, it seems too long. But overall I like the set. I do like the glider, something different in a Lego airport.

I just love this glider. Very simple and very elegant at the same time.
