LEGO has presented us with many great impulse sets and this one is no exception. This little set is part of the new LEGO City Mining line. This is my third review in the Reviewers Academy and I hope you enjoy! BASIC INFORMATION: Set Name: Mining Quad Set Number: 30152 Number of Pieces: 40 Minifigures: 1 Price: $4.99 USD Theme: City (Mining) Year Released: 2012 RESOURCES: Brickset Bricklink Brickipedia THE REVIEW: The Bag: The bag is the basic polybag and the design of it is the average LEGO City design. Instructions: The instuctions are tiny! I put the minifig here to show you are small it is. But they are very simple and that is a good thing for a dumby like me. Contents: The Contents are what you expect from this set. There are lots of yellow pieces and black pieces coming in second in the amount of pieces. Those translucent red pieces are great addition as well. Oh, and there isn't any stickers or printed pieces! Also, one trans orange round stud and a clear little piece for the miners helmet are the extra pieces.. Minifig The minifig is a pretty good one for a impulse set. I love the sweating head and the torso isn't bad. I really like the helmet and the light piece, so those are some good things. They make very realistic minifig accessories. The Mining Quad Set: The Quad: The Quad is pretty good. It can easily fit the miner. It has plenty of storage for whatever the miner has. Good job LEGO designers! Minifig in the Quad: I told he fits in nicely, you didn't believe me, did you? I like the addition of the seat part. Overall Set: Pretty shot here, isn't it? I haven't discussed about his little drill, so I will do so now. The drill is a good little accessory. It is detailed enough to look realistic. However, it is an older piece, but I think it fits in nicely with this set. Another great piece. Totals: Design: 7.5/10 The design isn't detailed like MOC experts, but it is the type of set we would expect from the LEGO City line. So although it isn't the best, it isn't bad. In fact it is pretty good. But 7-8ish out of 10 sounds right. Parts: 8/10 The parts are great if you build with the city line or any classic LEGO theme. There are some great trans pieces and who isn't happy with those? If your looking for some yellow pieces this is a great set. Build: 9/10 The build is very easy. There is pretty much not anything wrong with the build. However, I feel there could have been more of a challenge and I found that there was not any challenge, so that's why it isn't a 10. Minifig: 9/10 The minifig is great! He has a great face, helmet, and accessory. The torso ain't bad either. Who can complan about that? Playability: 10/10 The LEGO City line is made for playing. There is plenty of playablity in this set, so nothing to complain about here. Price: 7.5/10 Twelve cents a piece seems a bit to pricey to me. Forty bricks for five bucks isn't the best deal if I ma say so myself. But the fact that it comes with a great minifig and it is only five bucks makes it sound sweeter. Total: 51/60 This is an impulse set and so let's all remember that. Not only does it come with a pretty good minifig, but the Quad is simple but detailed enough. The only letdown is that it does only contain 40 pieces. I believe this set could be priced a little lower. But other than that, it's a-okay and it wouldn't hurt if you got out and bought it.
