Enjoying the sea breeze together
I am always fond of picking up small LEGO polybags and this is no exception. In this City polybag, it offers a new mode of sea transportation which is related to the LEGO City Harbour theme. Although this polybag is made up of a much smaller scale, but it offers pretty good selection of generic City looking civilians that can be used in your City population.
The LEGO building content
Not much LEGO bricks in here and the bricks count are exactly there for the building of the jet ski.
Meet these lovely City minifigures
These 2 lovely City minifigures are just fantastic. Both of them can be widely used for generic purposes and any amount of female minifigures are widely welcomed. In this case, the female torso is quite uncommon, while the male minifigure is part of the new releases of diver's design. Both minifigures also contain back-printing which certainly add much more details in the design.
New LEGO life-jacket??
As you can see from the instruction manual, we ought to be using the original LEGO life-jacket design. However, in this case this is a complete new life-jacket design. While it adds more details on the strap and lines, but the entire design is totally hideous and ugly. After you placed the life-jackets onto the minifigures, there is an obvious gap between the neck and the torso which made it totally unfit with one another. I got no use for these new life-jackets and I really wished TLG can bring back the old ones instead.
Do you like the new life-jacket design?
Different views of the Jet Ski
The jet ski design is easy to build. The design is simple and it can actually holds 2 minifigures in there. Not too bad at all.
You are safe in my hands
To conclude, this is a simplistic City polybags which actually offers 2 good minifigures which includes a female minifigure. I got nothing much to complain except that the new life-jacket is totally hideous. If you can find it with a decent pricing, you should definitely pick it up.
Playability: 8/10 (Fun to play with.)
Design: 8/10 (Jet ski's design is pretty good with the exception of the new ugly life-jacket element.)
Price: 8/10 (Pretty affordable to acquire, even in the secondary market.)
Overall: 8/10 (You should grab this polybag especially if you are a City collector.)
I gave it a "4" based on my Review Score Card. What about yours?
I hope every one of you enjoyed reading this simple review of mine. Comments and Criticisms are strongly welcomed.
