|Oh so sleek a build. Ohhhh yeah. Bow Bow... chicka chicka.|
The Lego Movie had an immense amount of sets and an entire minifig series devoted to it when it was released. I got a few sets from the movie here and there, but since storage space is quickly becoming a premium in my studio space, I had opted to pick up harder to find and smaller polybag builds. Don't worry, I've got larger sets in wait, some of them a few years now out of production, and some cool video reviews for those as well in the coming months.
This polybag set, the "Super Secret Police Enforcer", had 10 more pieces available in it, and that made a world of difference in the final build and overall aesthetic for this build. I know that the thing about Lego is multiple usage of common brick elements to create new and unique models, and that is very much the beauty of the simplicity of the LEGO system. That said, I am not a fan of minimalist brick count, just to barely get an idea across in model form. It's probably one of the reasons I so love the larger sets and a lot of the LEGO Ideas concepts.
It was a fun little build, and for those of you wanting to complete your Lego Movie series/sets, this one is a bit harder to find now, but fits in very well with the rest of the sets. The minifig is actually pretty well detailed and comes with a pretty kick ass futuristic pistol.
