Minifigure Monday – The Memories Are Here To Stay

The Memories Are Here To Stay
(An original poem from True North Bricks, featuring Minifigures)

The time has finally come, I fear,
To return back home, my dear.
Farewell to long walks on the beach,
The crashing waves within our reach.
Farewell to days lost in the Sun,
Living free and having fun.
It is back to the status quo,
But, all has not been lost, you know.
If life brings with it some woes,
Remember black sand in your toes.
When you’re working through it all,
Remember our waterfall.
Should the path become foggy,
Recall that sunrise drinking coffee.
All of that is just to say,
The memories are here to stay

To my lovely wife for a wonderful vacation. This photo was taken on Playa Negra in Puerto Veijo, Costa Rica. The Minifigures are standing on sand covered driftwood found during our last stroll on the beach.

Coloring Page – Beach Robin

It’s really sad to say, but my beach vacation in Costa Rica has come to a close. Tomorrow morning, I start the trek back to Montreal, bright and early. So, since I won’t have time to post in the morning, I will post this week’s coloring page a little early. Here is one last beach themed page from Playa Negra in Costa Rica. Click here to download your free PDF (it will open in a new window). Happy coloring!

Review – Fun at the Beach [60153]

My second beach themed review from Costa Rica is People Pack – Fun at the Beach! Is there a LEGO® set on the market right now with a more beachy vibe? I actually picked this set up quite some time ago when I found it for 20% off. I saved it unopened for this trip after I decided to review some beach themed sets from the beach. I will not be reviewing this set using the same criteria as I normally use. Since it is mostly Minifigures, I will review it by comparing it more to the Minifigure series than to other sets. Let’s see how Fun at the Beach holds up!

SET SUMMARY

NAME: People Pack – Fun at the Beach
SET #: 60153
THEME: City
COST: $49.99 CAD
BRICK COUNT: 169
MINIFIGURES: 15
OF INTEREST: a dolphin, a dog, a lobster, a fish
RELEASE DATE: May 29, 2017

DSC_0169web

Fun at the beach comes with a lobster. This photo was taken in the Caribbean sea at Puerto Veijo, Costa Rica.

SUMMARY REVIEW: 87%

VALUE: 80% (Better value than individual Minifigs, but still expensive.)
BUILD: 80% (Not much to build, and what you get is hit and miss.)
MINIFIGURES: 89% (Generic, but fun townsfolk, amazing brick:fig.)
ENTERTAINMENT: 100% (Lots of fun.)

REVIEW

VALUE: 80%
If we look at Fun at the Beach as a typical LEGO® set, then you are not getting a very good deal by buying it. It is expensive at $49.99 in Canada, and you only get 169 pieces in the kit. At that price, each brick will set you back $0.30. The current average for a LEGO® set based on the last catalog that I got in the mail was $0.12. However, it is not really fair to rate Fun at the Beach as a regular set, because it is labeled as a “People Pack”. You are essentially buying this to get 15 Minifigures. If you buy the Minifigure series blind-bags, you are paying $3.99 per Minifig. 15 characters would cost you $59.85, so this set gets you the same number of Minifigures for about 16% less of a cost. These are not as detailed as some of the characters you might get in the Minifigure series, but the value is decent when compared to cost of 15 individual blind-bags. I still felt this box was pricey, so I waited for a sale, and got mine for $40. The people packs are fun, but I wish they were a better savings than just 16%. For that reason, I will deduct a mark, and give Fun at the Beach 4/5 (80%) for value.

BUILD: 80%
There is not much to build in Fun at the Beach. Most of your time will probably go to assembling the Minifigures. With that said, you do build a sand castle, a hammock swinging between palm trees, a lifeguard stand, a volleyball net, an ice cream stand, as well as a beach chair and table with umbrella. I like the hammock and volleyball net. The sand castle is simple, but not bad. I have seen much nicer ice cream stands and beach chairs though. The life guard stand that came with the Coast Guard Starter Set (click here to read my review) was also nicer than the one seen in Fun at the Beach. If I was to rate these builds out of 10, I would take off a full mark for the ice cream stand, and half a mark each for the chair and life guard stand. That would give this set 8/10 (80%).

MINIFIGURES: 89%
Given that Fun at the Beach is a “People Pack”, the main reason to purchase it is for the Minifigures. You get 15 of them in the set. They are fairly generic townsfolk, but that is not a bad thing. It’s great to get some more bathing suits and beach attire for my city. These people will look great on a LEGO® beach, once I finally make one. In terms of their design, they do lose some points right off the bat for the four child Minifigs. I know I have harped on this before, but I hate those ape-kids, as I have come to call them. The stumpy legs and regular length arms really bother me. I also don’t like that the legs don’t bend. These stump legs are only appropriate on mythical characters, like dwarves, in my opinion. None of the characters have double sided faces, but a number of them have either printing on the legs, or two-tone legs (shorts). All have front and back torso printing, and some kind of hair or head covering. Based on my rating system, I would give these characters 68% for design.

DSC_0157web

You get a dolphin in the Fun at the Beach set. This photo was taken in a tide pool at Playa Negra outside of Puerto Veijo in Costa Rica.

Fun at the Beach does come with a ton of accessories though. You get a kayak with paddle, a windsurfing board, a fish, a dolphin, a lobster, a bucket, a shovel, a metal detector, a $100 bill, a cellphone, a dog, a parrot, a ball, a radio, a camera, a broom, a banana, a trash can, a megaphone, and binoculars. 21 accessories in total brings the score up to 78% (175 out of a total of 225 points). Again, these are generic people, not the ultra-detailed Minifigures seen in some licenced sets and the Minifigure series.

DSC_0158web

Since Fun at the Beach is basically almost all Minifigures, it understandably has an amazing brick-to-fig ratio. 1 Minifigure for every 11 parts to be precise. That earns a ratio score of 100%. Averaging this with the design score gives Fun at the Beach an overall Minifigure score of 89%.

DSC_0186web

Searching for treasure on Playa Negra in Costa Rica.

ENTERTAINMENT: 100%
I spent 29 minutes assembling the contents of this set. Most of that time went to putting the Minifigures together. If this was a standard LEGO® set, each minute of build time would cost $1.72. That is a terrible value. But, again, this set is essentially a collection of Minifigures, and not really a buildable set. For that reason, I will not be counting the build-time rating in this review. It is not really representative of the set.

DSC_0198web

Ice cream on the boardwalk. This photo was taken in the private garden on my villa at the Banana Azul Hotel in Costa Rica.

I enjoy this set quite a bit. I can see myself keeping many of the characters as is in my city. But, they also provide lots of great pieces for customizing people as well. For that reason, I will give Fun at the Beach a full 100% as my enjoyment score.

DSC_0202web

OVERALL: 87%

Fun at the Beach is a great way to expand your Minifigure collection, especially where beachwear is concerned. Buying this pack is cheaper than purchasing individual Minifigures, but a bit on the pricey side when considering the number of parts in the box. While I did not include the build-time score for this set in my review (since it not meant to be a typical set), you also pay a lot for the amount of assembly time that you get. Overall, the characters are fun though, and you get loads of accessories. I would probably wait to buy this on sale, but it is worth getting in my opinion.

What are your thoughts on Fun at the Beach? Feel free to comment below. Until next time,

-Tom

 

Minifigure Monday – Save Your Burning Feet

Save Your Burning Feet
(An original vacation inspired poem from True North Bricks, featuring a LEGO® Minifigure)

When it is too hot to stand,
In the Costa Rican sand,
To the ocean you should run,
To get relief from the Sun.
Jump on in and ride a wave,
Your burning feet you will save.

DSC_0224web

This Minifigure was photographed on Playa Negra, the black sand beach outside Puerto Veijo, Costa Rica, on the Caribbean Sea. You can find this Minifigure in the Coast Guard Starter Set (60163).

WALMART
Walmart is liquidating sets left, right, and center these days. Numerous people have written to me from around Canada this past week to let me know of the great deals they have been finding. You should check your local store(s), because what they discount in store is often different from what they list online. Some deals I have heard of in store that differ from the list below include Joker’s Notorious Low Rider ($30), The Ultimate Battle for Asgard ($45), and the Coast Guard Headquarters for significantly less than it is being marketed online. In this week’s online selection, both Destiny’s Bounty and the Silent Mary have appeared for 20% off, which is the first time I have seen either set for sale. Here are this week’s online deals:
