This buggy is so detailed and just super fun. Its a quick build, seems sturdy enough for a fair amount of play. My only complaint is that the companion set of this set is $30. Making this a total of $80 if you want to make it look as cool as the box art on the back. Other than that though this set is one of my favorites in the last couple years.
For any Lego Movie 2 fans this is a fun set to build. There are smaller versions of the escape buggy available in mini kit form, but if you want the full escape buggy this is the one to get. This one is fully operational and playable as well. The large tires and real suspension system make for a monster truck type experience. There aren't many parts on the buggy that want to fall off or otherwise create frustration which is a good thing. You get Emmet, Lucy, MetalBeard, Sharkira, star and heart. A nice assortment of key figures. It is a bit more challenging than average and thus gets an 8+ year old rating. There are plenty of props and accessory items to make the kit fun and playable. 5 stars.
While the set looks good – it's mean and certainly draws your eye – it's not a cheap set. At $80, I was honestly expecting a little more. The thing is, I don't know what more I was expecting. It's a cool looking car, and can fit two minifigures in it, but as a stand alone set, it's left me a little bit wanting, and I can't explain why.
The buggy sports durable, rubber tires that allow for a smooth ride on all surfaces. These are perfect for the LEGO movie 2 fans in your home.
On the whole, I think this set is okay. The build isn't really that amazing – I like the upper truck body but I don't really care for the skeletal and oversized wheel undercarriage. The minifigures are not bad but you can get Emmet, Warrior Lucy, MetalBeard, and Star in smaller sets which, when bought together, are still cheaper than this set. The playability is not bad – I like the suspension wheels and the fact that the buggy can sit Emmet and Lucy side-by-side – but I think it could have been better, potentially with more suspension on all four wheels. The price is alright I think – a little bit expensive in the U.S. and Australia but not so bad in the UK and New Zealand.
This big, aggressive looking vehicle goes nicely with 70834 MetalBeard's Heavy Metal Motor Trike. They both have the same sense of being apocalyptic world vehicles whilst having the feel that they have genuinely been cobbled together by the film's characters. Those who like the Apocalypseburg aspect of the film should definitely consider buying this set.
