盒子和内容

砖块素描包装的风格与我们为DC和星球大战套装看到的相同布局匹配。沿着盒子的顶部和底部有一块颜色(这次亮蓝色),带有乐高的标志和顶部的砖块草图。在完成集合的图像下,“迪士尼米奇和朋友”标志以底部为中心。两组都列出了“8+”年龄范围。

再次匹配以前的设计,盒子的背面以两种建议的显示格式显示草图:挂在墙上或使用内置的支架在平坦的表面上休息。底部的“动作射击”已被删除了几块砖。他们需要展示这些都是实际的乐高试剂盒,但它仍然有趣的是,它们具有替补手的零件申请的部分是清楚地验证了以前构建的模型,而不是成为任一集的实际构建顺序的一部分。

在每个标签密封盒中,是四个未命示零件袋和指令小册子。Mickey的部件数量是118件,而Minnie在140美元的价格上有更多的价格,每位套件价格为16.99美元,这为米奇和12个为米妮的大约16美分而提供价格,这两者都非常漂亮。而且,正如我们所看到的,这两个套件之间的零件选择几乎相同,只有一些颜色变化在背景和米妮穿着衣服和弓而不是米奇的领结。除了用于脸颊的3×3圆形瓷砖外,没有任何元素是新的或特别稀缺的。


建造

克里斯麦克斯designer of the Brick Sketches theme,标准化在12×16底座上,具有堆叠在顶部的元素层以创建字符图像。Mickey用一层红色瓷砖开始背景,以及由黑白板制成的一些基本形状。耳朵(6×6圆形板)延伸在基座的边缘上。

The build gets a little more interesting as more layers are added to build up Mickey’s face. 1×1 quarter-circle tile mixes in with curved plate to create some nice curves around the eyes. The eyes themselves are well rendered with half-circle 1×1 tiles. The yellow bow tie stretches past the edge of the “canvass,” which isn’t a problem when the model is leaned back on its stand. Mickey’s nose is attached with a 1×2 hinge assembly.

That hinge for the nose lets the 2×2 dome brick sit at an angle, adding a bit more character to the completed image.

Minnie’s build is, as you’d expect, virtually identical. The big and obvious change is the color inversion of a yellow background and red outfit. Minnie’s dress makes use of two heart-shaped plates for the puffy sleeves on her dress, with white 1×1 round tile for the polka dots.

Minnie’s bow is also made from heart-plate, with a bit of layering from 2×2 round plate and tile, and more 1×1 round tile for dots.

Minnie also gets two 1×2 grill tiles for eyelashes. That works surprisingly well, as the solid short edges of the tile vanish next to her eyes and the black parts of her face. The 4×4 bow tile that makes her neckline works pretty well, too.

两种型号都有相同的衣架/立场作为另一砖草图。一些轻型技术施工让站立在不使用时折叠。一个2×2耦合板用作墙壁安装钉的锚点。


成品模型

米奇和米妮俩都看起来非常好。它们很容易识别,颜色明亮和对比。但是,当你更接近不义的谷开始出现,效果并不是那么好。特别是,鼻子周围的区域只是向我读“错误”。虽然一些乐高铆钉仍然暴露在突出介质的情况下,沿着上唇的乐曲伴随着我。我认为这是瓷砖和板块的混合,导致问题 - 鼻子两侧的斜坡和3×3圆形瓷砖脸上的脸部太光滑了。(真的,我认为它可能只是破坏我的样子的白色脸颊。)

From the side, you can see that there’s a nice bit of 3-D to the image. This is a nice display perk, distinguishing these sets from the乐高艺术马赛克产品。

Minnie对我来说,米奇有相同的核心视觉问题。但是,我认为她的衣服看起来很棒。那些睫毛的工作非常好。

她“so looks nice from the side, with some good depth to the build.


Conclusion and recommendation

Unless you’re a big Mickey and Friends fan, then you’ll probably be less than thrilled with these sets. LEGO recently lowered the price point of Brick Sketches to $16.99 US, which makes them feel a little less like a price-gouge. But that price is still way too high for what you get in the set – 12 to 16 cents per part, with no particularly rare or exciting elements and no minifigures. The builds here are very easy, with very little interesting in the way of techniques. And building both kits back to back was really dull. On the positive side, there’s no denying that Chris McVeigh was able to create a solid and recognizable likeness of the characters within the part limitations he had to work with. As a display piece, they do work well. If you’re a Disney fan or gifting them to someone who is, then there are sure to be some smiles earned from the completed set. But I’d still wait for these to go on sale before I picked them up.
