Here is my review on Monkie Kid's 80009 Pigsy's Food Truck: THE GOOD: Great interior details inside the food truck. Great opening mechanisms for interior access. I like the graphic designs on the stickers. Excellent Pigsy minifigure. Interesting build for the Pig Mascot Machine Gun. Several elements that feed some dark humours for corrupted mind like me XD THE NOT SO GOOD: Because of the size of the truck, you can't just put it into a typical Lego City setting. I wonder if there is a way to replicate the excelling opening mechanism without visible gap for the joints. Overall, I think this is a good set. I enjoyed the building experience, the outcome and the minifigures. Thanks to size, the designer is able to put a lot of interior details into the food truck. I do feel the weaponised look is a bit over the top and too Zombie Apocalypse type of truck but it's ok the good parts overcome the little shortcomings and it's my personal preference anyway. The Pigsy minifigure is just great, can't wait to use the head with the torso and legs of the Pig Costume Guy XD. And I really wonder what's the idea behind using sausages on the grill and decorations while Pigsy is obviously related to Pigs. Also the back of the Pig Mascot on top, what do you think it looks like? XD. Despite a few flaws, I will still recommend this to everyone. It's not as good as the Monkey King mech but this is also good. And the price is probably one of the better ones in the overall Monkey Kid theme, in fact I found this set with the most reasonable pricing.
Apologies if this is out of turn, but I figured there should be a thread to discuss the (as of this writing) upcoming Monkie Kid TV Show. Thoughts so far? Personally, I love the new style; the CGI used for everything since Ninjago is getting kind of old.
Here is my review on the latest Monkie Kid 80012 Monkey King Warrior Mech: THE GOOD: The mech is impressive both size and look. The building experience is interesting. The legs have very smart designs and love the use of tires to give more tractions. The head looks lively. Great cockpit design with homage to Japanese animes. Tons of shiny gold colour pieces. New printed pieces (e.g. the peach and the takeaway box) Interesting side builds especially the flying cloud. THE NOT SO GOOD: I wish the knees have a bit more movements. The 2 citizen minifigures would be better if there are exclusive prints. The price is high (but I'm satisfied with the end results) Overall, this is one excellent mech set. I agree the pricing is bit over the top but I'm totally satisfied with the end results. The mech itself is the star, it's authentic and massive. Some designs may be reused to make a LEGO GUNDAM possibly. The finished model is strong for various poses but I do with the knees have more articulations. As a fan of The Journey to the West, I love it. Originally I thought it's a bit too futuristic but this mech kinda work. The side builds and minifigures selection are excellent too. I'm now waiting for Bricks & Pieces to reopen so I can get more shiny gold pieces (the gold banana!!!!) Despite the high pricing, I do recommend this set and if you are looking to buy something from this new theme, this is the one to go for!
