Hear Ye, Hear Ye!
Introducing LEGO Kingdoms most recent 2010/2011 set, 30062 Target Practice. I was surprised to find this little poly-bag set at my local Target while in line at the register.
Set Number: 30062
Set Name: Target Practice (from Brickipedia)
Piece Count: 31
Price: $3.99 (USD)
Purchased At: Target
I was equally surprised to find that a Free Child Ticket for Legoland California is included on the backside of the bag. It expires 12/31/11.
The instructions, like other poly-bag sets, are rather small:
The set includes a nice useful collection of 31 small pieces:
Got to love the Kingdoms Archer that will make a nice sentry for 7946 King's Castle:
Two spears and a crossbow are included for weapons. A crate makes the perfect storage container:
This archer eats well with a flame-grilled chicken cooking on a campfire. LEGO seems to love the chicken piece. How about a steak for the real carnivores?
The main build in this set is a little apple tree with target:
I didn't realize that one could attach the apples to the tree pieces in this manner. I'm also thinking, "Now this is what the Creator AppleTree House needed.
The target plate is attached with a hook to allow the traget to lift upward or downward:
This side image shows the design a little better:
Extra pieces include a hook and a flame:
Here is the completed set:
For a mere $3.99 (USD), this is a great little set. Just when I had all but forgotten Kingdoms, I find this. Although I like the Green Army better than the Reds, an archer is quite useful to a castle tower or even some forest adventure scenes. This set would also go very well with a few Forestmen from the Series 1 Minifigure collection.
I find the collection of accessories quite useful, although I wouldn't personally use the set as an army builder with just one minifig. Target Practice also provides a nice taste of the theme for those not into Kingdoms. Now I need to find 30061 which I never saw in stores.
Hope you enjoy the review - nothing fancy, but a quick and dirty look at a neat little set.
