A flintstones collector I have other flintstones items
Bought this as soon as it was available. Loved the Flintstones and this is just like it should be (although I would have liked a Dino!!) Daughter's and myself took our time to build, the car was fun as was the house and the internals of it!! Very happy with purchase!
What we are given is great, there's no disputing that, and if you were not aware of the original proposal, there would be nothing much to complain about. But if you are, you can't help feeling that it could have been better.
Considering any limitations that go with the compact size of the set, the Flintstones vibe was captured truthfully. The tiger-striped curtains, slanted boulder roof, foot-powered car and stone-age furniture are all instantly recognizable features of the cult series. With the evolving LEGO brick system increasingly lending itself to organic shapes, it was only natural to put these two timeless icons together.
The Flintstones maybe an odd choice for a LEGO set, it's no longer on TV so most kids will probably be unfamiliar with the show and its history. So I'd definitely say the set is aimed towards older LEGO fans. That being said it's not a complex build but I quite enjoyed building it. I like how the building has been give texture thanks to layered plates and the chimney is great. I was expecting the roof to fall off just by looking at it, but I'm surprised how well it remains in place considering it's not actually connected to anything. These all help to give the set a little character. The car is a decent representation of the what's seen in the cartoon, albeit with a few tweaks to make it work with LEGO elements.
This set looks like an animated scene come to LEGO life, which is about all anyone could ask for from a set based on The Flintstones. It is a shame that core characters were skipped, but what is in the box is well designed. It is unlikely that the modern Stone Age family will be released in a LEGO set ever again, so those who are Flintstones fans should get this release – even if it isn't perfect – and have a yabba-dabba-doo time, a dabba-doo time, have a gay old time.
You may not be the biggest fan of space rockets, a certain TV show, or movie, but this is what I love about LEGO Ideas sets the most — they always surprise you with something you would never expect to see on store shelves. However, I felt LEGO Ideas 21316 The Flintstones was going to make me want to re-watch the best episodes of the show and find a place in my room to have the set on display, but that magic didn't happen. It feels like I only have half of the set I was expecting to get, which makes me feel a little sad. Don't get me wrong; everything included in the box looks awesome and even made me “yabba dabba doo!” here and there, but every time I want to recreate a certain scene or take a particular picture I can't help but notice the set's limitations: a lack of characters, a lack of extra facial expressions, and a lack of free space inside the house.
