REVIEW: 41755 Nova's Room

Recommended Posts

Here is my review on 2023 Friends 41755 Nova's Room:

THE GOOD:

  • Great details in depicting the theme of Nova's room.
  • Love the gaming chair.
  • Some cool action features like revealing a poster behind a shelf, items under the bed, the PC and related accessories.
  • Not usually a fan of Friends's animal moulds but this dog is cute and wheelies will work.
  • Very nice concept executed well, this is like small diorama.

THE NOT SO GOOD:

  • None I can think of.

This is one of the four Rooms released this month.  This one particularly caught my eyes with the overall theme on gaming and live stream and it does not disappoint.  The overall details depicting the theme nicely and very appropriate colours as well.  The fact that with such small set and packed with lots of details.  The gaming chair is a highlight and it's a fun furniture build that you could certainly re-use in your own lego creation.  Same applies to the bed.  While usually not a fan of stickers, the graphic designs are nice and fit the theme very well.  I especially like the PC set up, having the screen showing Nova live streaming gameplay with mic and LCD light are such nice details.  You could say they should have a hairpiece with headset as well but that's probably asking too much in a set with this price point.  On top of that, LEGO incorporated a few action features in the set which are nice.  Especially the items underneath the bed is a very common thing for everyone =P. The exterior looks clear while it's not the focus, but it gives you an idea on how the house or apartment may look like.  Finally, even you are not a fan of minidolls like me, they do both come 2 new hair pieces which are minifigure compatible.  And a adorable sausage dog with workable wheelies.  At a low price point, the pricing is very competitive considering you usually can get a discount of these.  Overall, this is an excellent set and so far I;ve really enjoyed the Friends theme lately.  This is definitely a recommendation to everyone and you can easily replace the dolls with minifigures depending on your preference.  This is an excellent concept of small dioramas which I hope would apply in other LEGO themes too.

Can't wait to get all the new Friends sets, but this one is my most anticipated.

Though 09:08 on the clock suggests that Zac is either round at Nova's house very early or he stayed the night! Wonder if these two are just friends?

Yeah those Room sets look great, even work well as expansion parts packs for things like 3-in-1 scale house/appartment rooms (8x16 plate is already provided), with the amount of bricks/tiles/windows and interior pieces like drawers, sliding doors and overall decoration/accesoires. (sure it won't build you full houses but that's why I call it expansion set)

Nova's Room especially uses a very different color scheme, but it works, with the neon tiles, purple line and then darkblue walls, and the overall theme of a Gaming/Streaming room is a bit different.

I'm so glad you liked it! This was a fun one to design, especially getting all the PC peripherals in there. Good point about the headphones. A new hairpiece wasn't in the cards unfortunately, but I wish I'd included a pair of Monkie Kid headphones to go around Nova's neck. Next time!

Just to put this to bed, 9/8 is my birthday so it's just a small easter egg the graphic designer included :)

wow I'm so stoked someone worked on this set commented!!!!  There is also that hair piece with headphones from Hidden Side but I guess this will not fit Nova's awesome new hair with colour change.  Good thing is I have spare headphones from Monkie Kid =). This set is truely great!
