Remember that free shipping and Zombie Car mini-set offer I told you guys about? Well I couldn’t resist, and got the mini-set late last week.
It’s a pretty small set, at only 60 pieces, but when it comes for free I’m certainly not going to complain. Especially when it includes another much-coveted zombie minifig (I can simply never get enough of those).
60 parts isn’t a ton, but there are some pretty great pieces mixed in here. Aside from the zombie, whom we’ll get to in a bit, you also get a few pretty sweet parsts:
- 5 of the new round tiles
- 3 small flames
- A glow-in-the-dark spider
- 2 new SNOT pieces
- 3 white spikes/teeth
Not a bad haul, all things considered.
But of course, the real reason people are interested in this set is because it comes with a zombie. It’s not a unique zombie, unfortunately. This same guy shows up in two other sets: The Vampyre Hearse and The Zombies, the latter of which I will review soon. That said, it’s still a zombie and zombies are fantastic, especially in LEGO® form.
The zombie driver is quite a cool figure. His torn-up uniform has an old-school feel to it, like everything in the Monster Fighters theme, but it still fits in perfectly in a modern setting. The head is different from the previous zombies we’ve seen, sporting a more aggressive look. I’m hoping to get a couple of these to mix into my random assortment of zombie faces.
The Zombie Car
The set itself is a vehicle, which is a little disappointing, but not terribly surprising given LEGO®’s affinity toward vehicles. I would have loved to see a small building or rural scene instead, but I’ll take what I can get.
Luckily, the car is actually pretty darn cool. It’s got a chopped-up, slapdash look to it. The front end looks like a more classic car (if you ignore the fangs), while the backend sports a roll-bar, flames pouring out of the exhaust, and a single brake light that looks like an afterthought. It’s pretty cool.
There are also a few extra pieces, including an extra spike and an extra round tile:
Is Zombie Car worth ordering $75 worth of LEGO® just to get? Probably not. However if you’ve been waiting to put in an order, it’s worth bumping it up to the $75 to get this set (and the free shipping). The car is pretty cool, and I’ll never complain about an extra zombie minifig.
Especially for free.
The offer is still good until September 21st, so don’t miss out.
Cool, I have 1 coming up in the mail… It reminds me of last week’s featured creation with the Zombie on a scooter. If zeds start driving cars now, we are really screwed!
There is definitely a zombie mobilization theme here. We should be concerned.
Not too long ago I saw an artwork of a Zombie on a segway, that was scary
Hah. I’ve seen able bodied people struggle with those things. If a zombie can’t ride one, we’re all screwed.
Nice review Dave, I may have to hit the online store just to claim my own one!
Do you have this available in the States? http://shop.lego.com/en-GB/Halloween-Accessory-Set-850487
We do, it runs $15.00. I considered ordering it, but opted to go with something with a better part to price ratio. I am tempted by the brown zombie though.
Did you mean round plate or round tile? Round plates are such common extras in sets nowadays I have no idea why anyone would be pleased to get an extra one! 😀
Oh, I completely meant tile. Let me fix that.
im not sure if $108 is worth the cost for that little tiny set, im sorry, but its just not.
Where are you getting $108? This is a freebie they throw in when you order other stuff.
cool what did u get ,dave instead of da zombie car (dont have 2 answer)
The Zombies and Weathertop.
