Review:7595 Army Men on Patrol
Posted 10 December 2009 - 11:11 AM
This is one of the sets I have most looked forward to in the TS line.
I guess we will see some quite funny mocs in the future using those figs.

Has anyone noticed the similarity between the jeep in this set and Indiana Jones' Brickmaster Jeep? It's not identical, but it's amazingly close.

Thanks again for bringing us the great news, Pugsly!
This is the news for the color-problem in 2010: No change!
Let's hope for 2011 then.

Other than that, smashing. Great value too.

LEGO has a real winner on it's hands here, the appeal for both AFOLs and kids is massive. I love everything about this set! The potential for playability and MOCs is superb.

Yeah, it's pretty obvious in that picture. The thing is that green was not a color that had problems in the past, as far as I know.
This is still a great set though, especially for the $10 price. I'll certainly get at least one.

I've noticed nowadays that every time they fix a colour, they mess up somewhere else
Note the unprinted neck on the torso and the square production marks on the inner arms. Same as the dodgy battlepacks and magnet sets.

I thought the unprinted neck had more to do with machine assembly of torso and head. Since the hat is attached to the non-standard sized head, it would figure that the the torso and head would not be machine assembled, hence no need for a printed neck. At least that's what I would think.

You are so right! Thanks for the great review by the way!

It looks that way, yes.
Except that Buzz is only half from the other factory - his regular length legs and torso are normal parts, just like the army men. In his case only the specialty bits of the figure are bagged.
It appears that the new longer legs and new longer arm pieces are being made in the secondary factory as well - so Woody comes fully bagged, but Buzz only half-bagged.
