Name: 3178 Sea Plane
Piece Count: 102
Price: $14.99 CDN, $10.99 USD
I've been wanting to get this little set for a while now. I like the yellow and white colours. There was 25% off sale last week and I gave in.
The box is small and very thin cardboard. It has pretty photos of the product in the front and back.
The back shows the features of the sea plane.
INSIDE THE BOX:
Inside the box contains 2 plastic bags of parts, 1 sticker sheet, 2 wing pieces and 2 instruction bookets. (Yes, 2 booklets for such a small set.)
The set comes with one minifigure. He is a generic plaid kind of guy.
It does say "Designed for easy build" right on the box. Everything came together easily with no errors. It was quick and enjoyable.
"Hurry up, I want my plane. Can't you build any faster?"
The landing pontoons were interesting. They're held together with Technic parts and pins.
The propellers supplied with the set are different than the ones pictured on the box.
I don't think this is a not set you would get for interesting special parts.
Playability: 10/10 (it swooshes well)
Design: 8/10 (the colours are good)
Price: 7/10 (11 cents US/piece or 15 cents CDN/piece)
"We live to deliver."
