Name: 8957 Mine Mech
Theme: Power Miners
Price: $ 7.99
And the description from Shop@Home:
"Explore the underground with the Mine Mech!
The one-of-a-kind Mine Mech is an experimental mining walker built to go where the other Power Miners vehicles can⦣8364;™t. Its enhanced movement and armor make it perfect for exploration and emergency rescues, and its spinning plasma cutter and crushing claw make it more than a match for any rock ⦣8364;“ or rock monster!"
Hmm. Witty. Parts, debagged. well, they were debagged for over a day so far ;D
The minifigures! Boulderax is too cute and Brains is cool and a nice break from the typical heroic gorillas. I really wish we had a female miner. :/
"In-build shots" . . . . well . . . . not really . . . . The build is very fun, and the building time is about 10 minutes. I stretch it out, y'see. :D
The pic of the Mine Mech itself finished, as finished by instructions. It's kinda ugly this way.
Leftover parts. Pleh. :p
The instructions and god-awful box. ;p
Random instruction page, or so I hear one has to have one of these in a eurobricks review, right?
Now it's time for the summary!
Playability: 9/10 - awesome! great posability, I'm good . . . .
Price: 9/10 - Great! really good parts for price. :)
Design: 8/10 - The box art makes it look awful, but the finished model is super cute, especially with bent legs.
Parts: 9/10 - Like I said, excellent parts. Saw? Claws? Helmet? Warning light? Rock monster? Ball joints? >:D
Minifigures: 7/10 - pretty good, Boulderax is sweet, and so is Brains to some extent, but Snake from SP III was way cooler.
Thanks for readin', y'all! this is a great set and it was a pleasure to share it with you, and thank you for flying United, all electronic devices and must be turned off and . . . .
. . . .
Heh heh. Right.
