That plankton...it's just a prototype, right?  I can't imagine Lego doing anything THAT shoddy!

As Takua, you are very adventurous and can be reckless and irresponsible at times, but inside you know you have what it takes be a hero.

Actually, if you read the beginning he mentioned how:

This is the official LEGO Spongebob "Build a Bob" set. Thanks to Steve Witt who allowed us a first look at this during BrickSouth. He's given me a shot at reviewing this so here goes:

I dunno though...it still doesn't look that appealing to me  :-/

Nothing bad at all. Lots of pieces, and everyone loves lots of pieces. And hey, its Bob. It cant be be much better a set than this for being a Bob.

Great review of the set Chris  ;-)

The model looks better than I originally thought !!
Also, its a great parts pack: it has a great selection of yellow parts and slopes, computers and trans clear chefs hats  *sweet*

I do concur with you on Plankton: its really bad, bad, bad  >:-(  TLC's policy on stickers have always annoyed me, but placing stickers on 3 parts is just stupid and wrong !!!

And the playability additions are quite nice actually. I am pleased to see yet another "shooting device" in a set  :-D  Well in that case its understandable (unlike in the new ISD) IMO.

Those chefs hat really have a second life tks to Spongebob hehe: pink they are jellyfish, clear they are bubbles hehe.

Also Chris I love your little comic at the end, its ingenious  ;-)

PS: added to the Nick Index  ;-)

Nice review - though I'm not getting any of these Sponge Bob sets.
Loved the comic and "All your sponges are belong to us" (ROFL)

I don't think there's much to look for in this set for an adult... I think the parts are average at best, and if we do have a set with lots of basic bricks, then i'd prefer it to be a castle, not Sponge...

I think it'll be easy to modify and give a back-case. Might buy, might not...

Is Build A Bob the new name?

Build-a-bob looks like a pretty great set, and a nice homage to that "Plankton takes control of Spongebob" episode.
