REVIEW: 8958 Granite Grinder
Posted 20 December 2008 - 11:14 PM
...I didn't know that the arms of the little rock guys could work for the mini figs! That Rocks! (Har Har Har! ;) ) Seriously, I think that's a fun feature that I hope TLG continues to explore. Additionally I think the set in general is pretty cute. Nice, clean, and well rounded looks and sounds to be a nice entry into this theme.

Great review, I might pick this up just for the head. I'd love that on a chef minifig.

I have a hard time telling when a joke is over. It's over. <----Words from a MOD

However, as many people have already said, I personally prefer the "sci-fi industry" feel of Rock Raiders to the "modern industry" feel of Power Miners.

the rubber band does not come on one of the old grey rubber band holder things, instead it was packed in a separate cardboard packet; like capes and rope usually come in.
I sure will miss the old technic-y band holders....
Also occurs to me that there are some very Odd things about the construction,
like inside the base of the chassis why are they're click hinges?
and why the technic rod and connectors right behind the driver's seat?
it's nice to have the parts i guess... but its strange, they don't seem to serve any purpose in the actual model's functions and they're expensive parts too; so I wonder why they'd do that?

I have a love/hate relationship with those rubber tracks in general, not just this set.
They look nice, but always seem to hate rolling smoothly since they pull hard on the wheels and make their axles bind up. Longer axles with good support inside the chassis can help, but its a pain to get right.

A great review of a great set - I'm picking this one up tomorrow, if it's still in the shop
It does look like a great little set for the price, and of course there's the obligatory rock monster
But I'll probably put the big container piece it tows and the chain to use in a Power Miners Moc, however.
