This is my first review, I finally find sometimes to get into the reviewing!

This set was release as a promotional set in 2001, at the beginning of the Lego Studios range.

This set is special for me because it's in this one I found my sigfig ! I'm rather happy to have drank Nesquik for years ago, thus I feel lucky to get this one in my hands !

Bag content:

Watch the back of the box again, and try to spot the missing part!

You can note that the yellow lever shown on the back of the box is not included. It is not shown on the bag either.

Moreover, there is not instructions book, Lego consider this set is too easy to build to put explanations? Too bad…

Minfigs: The most interesting thing is the exclusive Quicky minifig. The two others are interesting, notably for their double printed torso.

Building of the cart:

After a long, exhausting and complex build, here is the cameraman’s cart:

As you can see, the design is quite poor. It's jsut a little extra for the three minifigs of the set. I admit it's better than if the cameraman held the camera in his hands.

Review:

This set is of course interesting for its Quicky minifig because the rest of the parts are quite standard. The cart is not really very strong, the two 2x4 plates being linked thanks to the wheel. I’d like to see a chair for the director with his name, and he can shout:”Motor, Action!”. However, this set is a must have if you like Lego Studios, exclusive set or part, or if you like rabbit !! :tongue:

Minifig: 5/5

Pieces: 2/5 Just because of the camera

Playability: 3/5

Construction: 2/5 as said before, the cart is not very strong, and have a strange look.

Overall rating: 4/5

Very good review 74louloute!

I never had the chance to see this set (dark ages) and although that it not something super special, the minifigs are great!

Is it me, or it seems that the bunny is clearing its throat *cough cough* to make a speech in front of the camera? :tongue:

I really want, for whatever reason, to get one of those rabbit figures. I've mulled over buying it before on Bricklink and I suppose it's just a matter of time before I do. Thanks for the review of this odd set.
