This review is from: The LEGO Movie 70800: Getaway Glider (Toy)
I don't recall a scene in the movie where Emmett escapes Sheriff Not-A-Robot and Deputron on a makeshift glider. There are hundreds of things from the movie to base a set on and this one comes across as a little disappointing. My main gripe is that it is made up of many small pieces and just doesn't feel sturdy. It's a chaotic set, with no symmetry, and the hasty nature of it implies that Emmett put it together from a bunch of Western scraps. I'd much rather have the sets based on those scraps, if you get me.
The cactus is just plain stupid too, why did they not included the regular type of flora seen in other Lego sets? It's just so pointless having it in there, it doesn't go with anything and serves no purpose. It looks like something from a Creator set.
It took me longer to build this set than it really should have thanks to the numerous tiny pieces. It's not a bad set, but just very uninspired and a missed opportunity. I expect many more Lego Movie sets to come in the future and hopefully they will be better.
