Posted 07 September 2008 - 06:59 AM
7902: Doctor's car
Pieces: 66 (3 extra)
Price: 6 USD / EUR / 4 UKP (UK price may have been higher in the past)
Building time: less than 10 minutes
More info: Brickset - Peeron
Box front: no frills, just the set.
Box back: no alternate models, but "Designed for easy building and istant play". I still wonder if today's kids are lazier or dumber than my generation...
Box content: 2 bags, loose car base, instructions, stickers.
(not so) Random manual page: the evolution of SNOT tecnique on car lights.
Set inventory: split into 2 pages!
Stickers: Red Cross has gone a long time ago; here's Caduceus.
Loose pieces: we're ready to start!
Minifig and accessories: "What's up, Doc?"
M.I.P. (Most Interesting Piece): it's SNOT time!
Building starts: and it's fast and easy
Notes: car has doors! and that black plate with rail helps so that the roof doesn't only weight on the windscreen.
Complete model: top view
"Container Cupboards": that's where Doc puts its accessories when driving.
Sticker time: see the difference, with and without.
Review and rating.
Do you remember when Lego cars had doors? It seems so long ago... The car is simple; but as well as a set can be designed, this one doesn't look so realistic (isn't it what Lego has been doing over the last few years? Going realistic?) Doc is OK, but I guess many people would have wanted a female fig (and: brown eyebrows with black hair? that's odd ) As I said, no Red Cross, but a politically correct Caduceus on the roof and sides. Extra pieces: 1 small antenna and 1 1x1 decorated tile.
Overall, a cheap way to own a doctor minifig and a nice vehicle to add to your town. Just above average.

EDIT: I must have missed this review after it was posted back in Sep. I went ahead and kept the blog, since it's always enjoyable to look at these reviews.
