This LEGO series is so cool. I haven't even tried the AR component. The ghoulish sea captain and albino alligator are two of the coolest elements I have seen in a while. The shrimp boat itself is charming and the splitting shipwreck feature is perfect!
The minifigures of this set are very good - Jack, Spencer (the ghost dog) and Parker (although these three are used in pretty much every hidden side set) Captain Jonas (both his haunted and not haunted forms are absolutely incredible, love the octopus arms) and Jonas jr (the innocent civilian of the set, an alright minifigure). The side builds of this are also very nice, including a kayak for Jack, Parker and Spencer to row along in; an albino/ghost crocodile/alligator; and some terrain to act as a stand for the wrecked boat. I really like this because it makes the whole set into a display piece, and also the rock in the middle can pop up to reveal a ghostly/possessed face underneath. The main build of the set is very nice also, although I am a bit upset about the number of stickers used instead of prints. In fact, I do not think there is a single printed piece on the boat apart from the commonly used 2x2 slope piece. The front part of the boat is really the part where someone would control it, and the back is where they would keep the shrimp/fish they have caught. 6 pieces are used to make shrimp in the back, which I think is a nice little detail. The spinner thing (used to scan for gloom in the app) also sits on the back of the boat, representing (I think) net or rope. The boat can easily spilt in two, which I think is pretty cool for when they get shipwrecked. I'm quite disappointed with how much of the set works with the app. The kayak, croc/gator and terrain are completely ignored and you only ever interact with the boat. In addition to the boat being the only thing you interact with, the only thing to interact with is the spinner thing (for scanning for gloom) and putting a minifigure on a brick to scan. It's a shame :(. Overall, I think that this set is quite nice (and a fun build), although doesn't interact with the app as much as I thought it would. A strong set, although not the strongest of the wave (and that's not the set's fault - it's just that the other sets set quite a high bar that I do not really thing this set meets.)
For $50, it's good value! It looks great, has some quality new elements, and because of those elements, it'll be collectible. So far, Hidden Side seems to be a winner!
As a LEGO set, this was a huge breath of air, and I fully enjoyed the entire experience. It's not mindblowing in any sense, and this set won't become an instant classic, but I really liked the entire package.
Although one of the smaller Hidden Side sets, it does have some nice little details. I'm not sure I'm a fan of the split function, although it looks a little better once mounted on the rocky outcropping. The boat does feel a little small, but for a two manned crew vessel is feels about right.
I have already seen this set discounted to £20 in the UK (£5 saving in a nationwide supermarket) and it is a great little set especially if you get it for that price. The two fishermen and their ship will be attractive to youngsters and the added play features of a monster and the ability to shipwreck your ship provide extra fun for all.
The minifigure selection is exceptional and I think the shrimping craft looks tremendous, striking an ideal balance between realism and fantasy. I am especially pleased with the concealed colour wheel and look forward to exploring its interaction with the app.
The design team should be commended for the amount of care and attention they have poured into this new theme. Exclusive parts, exclusive animals and exceptional minifigures are a real highlight. The paranormal concept feels incredibly cohesive and is evident throughout the entire set. The Hidden Side mobile game might not offer much in terms of longevity but as an introduction to the theme, and as a LEGO set in it's own right, 70419 Wrecked Shrimp Boat is not only well worth adding to the collection but is phenomenally good value for money too.
