Wow, I made it to 4th place. I thought the steampunk (sort-of) looks of my build would not appeal sufficiently, but I was wrong :sweet: Thanks for all the votes guys/gals!

And many congrats to the winners, well deserved! :thumbup:

REVIEW - EB TC13 - The Mug (limited edition)

Congrats! As stated in the information topic, the first three will each receive their respective mug! And of course the medal tag.

And I do have a special prize/challenge for @MegaRoi ....if he chooses to accept.

Right to the end of TC13, the first foto of the EB TC13 Mug was leaked. It was quite clear that there will be only a few available, while it's total edition is limited to three. 
The more I'm happy, to give you an exclusive review of EB TC13 - The Mug.
 
Disclaimer:
This mug is my own. It's not my goal to promote this mug. The opinion in this review is my own and is in no way linked to EB.
 
 
SET INFORMATION
Number: EB TC13
Name: The Mug
Theme: TC13 Pull Back Contest
Released: 2018
Piece count: 1
Weight: 325g
 
THE BOX

The prize came in a huge box! 
The box itself is not too spectacular, but it has a nice text on it: "Daar ben ik dan. Pak mij uit." (Here I am. Unpack me)
Once opened, I found out, that there is more content in this box besides the mug.
For that, I have to write another review ... *huh*

CONTENT OF THE BOX
 
M03.jpeg
The mug itself is nice wrapped and looks quite safe. It comes without any manual or closer description. Maybe EB will think about a certificate or anything else that could come with a future prize.
 
PARTS
This prize comes with a single piece:

THE BUILD
 
The build was straight forward, even without instructions.

MY RATE
Playability:   8/10
Parts:            7/10
Coolness:   12/10
 
 
FINAL THOUGHTS
It's exclusiveness is unreachable and every piece of this limited line is very unique! 
The mug itself comes in a good quality and the print looks nice. While the colors of the print may vary, each owner of this mug can be proud to have his very individual edition.
The playability of this mug is quite good: you can store things in it and it will even contain hot liquids until they are drunken. 
Besides that, the functions could have been a bit better. I can imagine self heating mugs, or self refilling ones. Try to think outside the box EB!
And as you can see on the pictures, this is a left handed mug! For future editions I would recommend a right handed version, to improve it's usability.
To come to an end: this prize came without any instructions. While the build wasn't too difficult, the usage was somewhat nebulous. I think it's best for coffee on Sunday mornings.

Thanks to EB, EB members and TC13 voters.

Excellent review and fabtastic photos :thumbup:. Given the rareness of this set, the prices on the aftermarket will skyrocket and I see no hope of getting one at all ;-)

I already see them popping up on Bricklink and eBay for 60/70 bucks and prices will probably skyrocket in the future. I'm afraid it's a bit too much for my taste.

Wow! So little for such a rare set? Doesn't only, like, 1 copy of it exist?

Once again, congrats @MegaRoi! Your cup review was awesome, so can't wait for your boost review :laugh:

Funny that you mention it. I have been pondering over right or left handed. I am right handed, but I drink my coffee with my left hand. That means I would see the image myself. But you are right, the mug is right handed, so you are probably meant to drink with your right hand...to show off the award :laugh:

I noticed that too, but the narcissist in me likes to hold it left-handed so I can see the silver cup myself :laugh:

That is one sweet picture.

I don't know if the yellow backdrop is on purpose, but it does work very well with the mug and model.
