MEMBER OWNS SET: YES     MEMBER HAS BUILT SET: YES


FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 6

My son's and I do all of the TRU builds and have ton's of fun doing these builds. With the Lego Movie a huge hit we knew that this would be a fun little build for the boys. Emmet's Car come with 2 build sheets so you get twice the fun. 

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 2

Just a cool little TRU build with no real new parts.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 5

I gave this a 5 because it was an average build for my 4 year-old son. It also only took him about 5 minutes to assemble it.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 10

It was a free build so, for me, its value was high. It really just cost gas and time out of the day. But my time spent with the boys far outweighs the little cost to get there. 

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 8

The Lego Movie is a hit so this little set just adds to the entire theme. And due to the popularity of the movie, and the cost of this set ($0), this is a great addition to the theme.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 6

Even though the set can be assembled with parts, the exclusivity lives in the fact that it was a TRU build.

PACKAGING | Score: 1

Zip baggie full of bricks. Need I say more?

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 5

Given that this was a TRU build, and only for one day, I think that this little gem will do okay in the future.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 3

No real decoration that makes it stand out. No minifig to accompany it. Keep it in the bag.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 7

I give this set the final score of 7 because, while the wife was at work, I got to spend my afternoon with my boys at TRU building Lego. That is really the best part of this set. Day off,  free Lego, Dad and sons building. Perfect.
