Really neat idea and building techniques went into this set and the level of detail maintained within this price value really shows. It's one of the bright sides to these sets in the recent waves. Sure there is no playability to appeal to a younger audience but there is plenty of appeal and like a great addition to any gamers desk or shelf space!
Overall, a fun little release from LEGO that won't break the bank, but will serve you well if you want to scratch that building itch, and are the kind of person to proudly display your LEGO collection to people.
I started out pretty iffy on these sets. After building them and looking though the parts, however, I can say I'm now a fan. The builds are quick, but fun. The finished models are great.
I've always admired the designs Chris used to share on social media. So I'm delighted they are now available as an official LEGO product. They offer a unique build experience as you are layering elements instead of building 3D structures or vehicles. The result is a fun looking display piece, that would look great hanging on the wall or sitting on a desk.
Brick Sketches open up a whole new way to display LEGO, hanging on the wall, and they look great in my office at Brickset Towers. Now we know the price, I think $20 is a little on the high side for what they are. Although not marketed as 18+ adult sets they are likely to be of interest mainly to AFOLs given that price point and lack of playability.
