Why hello there everyone and welcome to my review of 30015 Jet Ski. I got this at TRU in the USA, and since I can’t find a review of it here, I thought I might as well do one. Let's get on to the review.
Name: 30015 Jet Ski
Price: $3.99 USD
The front features the regular: Set number, part count, picture, etc. The set is displayed in the water, with a harbour in the background. Nothing too exciting but it gets the job done.
The back features warnings and an advertisement for Lego club.
The instructions are printed on a sheet of glossy paper, as to be expected in a polybag. No colour issues, and there are no part numbers.
This set includes 24 pieces, none of which are great, but are all useful. We have some white, black and lime green, which is always welcome. The life jackets are also nice pieces to have.
The highlight of this set is definitely the minifigs. There are two figs, a male and a female. The female has a brown pony tail, blue pants, and the white tank top that first appeared a couple years ago. The male has the new "classic" hair mold in orange, grey pants, and a very interesting new torso print I've never seen before. It looks like a scuba diving suit/a wet suit. Very nice indeed.
Both figures have back printing.
After a couple minutes of building, we have our completed jet ski. It looks very nice in white and lime green, with a black stripe running down the whole side. Very snazzy looking if you ask me. The handle bars are made with an Exo-Force robot arm, which is a great alternative to a BD arm. The only problem with this, as you might be able to see, is that the driver can only stand in one position while holding the bars, with no movement possible. There is also space on the back for a second figure.
The only other problem I have with this is its size. Compared to the boat in the Lighthouse set, this thing is huge!
Despite the few drawbacks, I think this is one of the best polybags we've seen in a long time. The model is decent, but we get 2 (!) figs.
Playability: 8/10 It's a jet ski, and with two figures, you can play as much as you want. Very swooshable. -2 points for the fact that you can't move the driver once he's holding the bars, which makes it kinda hard to remove him.
Design: 9/10 Looks great with the colour scheme for the small piece count and price. Could be a bit smaller though.
Price: 9/10 Could've been $3.49 like other polybags, but with two figures, 50 cents extra is worth it.
Minifigures: 10/10 Two figures! A female, and a male with a cool new wet suit!
Parts: 7/10 Nothing too exciting, but a nice selection overall.
Thanks for reading my review of 30015 Jet Ski!
