Review : 4442 Glider
Posted 17 April 2012 - 09:44 PM
Last week I went on holiday with the German charter airline TUI and "oh surprise" they where selling this nice little exclusive set on board... so I take this as an opportunity to do my first LEGO set review.
Release: 2012 (April)
Price: EUR €16, GB £15
Links ... Brickset ... Bricklink
Availability: In-flight purchase on TUI flights and from Virgin Atlantic (UK delivery only)
The box is very "dense", makes sense as they don't have much room in the plane to store them. Here is a comparison shot with a regular set (176 pieces).
2 nice figs, both with back printing. Cool hair pieces too.
Here is a shot of the instruction page showing how to take the wings off.
Bonus shot, comparison with 7643 (another airline exclusive)
They had me at the word "exclusive"...that being said it's a nice little set that comes with cool Figs. The plane is simple but swooshable and it would be a good addition to any LEGO airport.
The car is very basic but the trailer has a clever design and the possibility to "transport" the plane adds to the playability.
Overall a winner!
Thanks for watching!

The plane is cool, but the shape of the car is not to my liking.
I most likely won't be able to get this set unless i brick link or ebay it though.

I hate how I always miss out on the airline promos. This one isn't as good as the others, but it's still a pretty cool set.

The car looks too basic, glider is different for a change I guess.
Handy to have those minifigs, similar to the ones in the car and caravan set except for the guy's head.
