To export several sets, go to the exporter. If you use the data I'd really appreciate a link back to Brick Insights. It keeps this site going.
We received the product faster than anticipated. My son could not put it down. It was built in 5 minutes!!
I wandered into the Lego Store yesterday to kill some time before work. And I happened upon this guy. I decided to get it as a present for my 8yo son who was having a very rough day. I gave it to him this morning before I went to work, so roughly 8ish. I get a picture from my mother about 10ish with him holding a complete Steve and Parrot, happy as can be. The instructions were simple enough that he could follow them and not be confused. He apparently just sat down this morning and worked on it till he was done. I am glad that I found this and got it for him. one proud mom here lol.
I can't get past the fact that it's all just a little bit dull. Brickheadz were often criticized as they were display pieces that couldn't be played with, and I appreciate that this goes beyond, achieving a larger format toy that can be both played and displayed. The features are quite limited though, and you'll likely need 2 of the 3 to get the most out of play.
Let's be honest, adult fans of LEGO don't always love Minecraft or the LEGO Minecraft theme. And that's OK. Not every theme needs to cater to the adults in the crowd along with its core audience of 6-12-year-olds. But we here at The Brothers Brick always advocate excellence in building, regardless of the theme. And the LEGO Minecraft Big Figs are excellent. They're amazingly accurate models, they're sturdy enough to withstand kid play, and they don't rely on any specialized elements apart from the accessories. This scale fits LEGO Minecraft perfectly. Now there's just one thing we're missing: some scale blocks to accompany them.
I think these three Minecraft sets contain some great universal pieces, although you only get the new pieces in rather small numbers. I recommend getting Steve for some good Dark Brown pieces and Alex for the Sand Green.
Perhaps the only downside of 21148 Steve BigFig with Parrot is the limited poseability, but this does match the mechanics of the actual game. If you are a fan of Minecraft then this BigFig will appeal either for its playability or as a rather geeky desk decoration – or both.
