We've got one more LEGO Movie polybag to review for you all, courtesy of LEGO. Today we're taking a look at 30282 Super Secret Police Enforcer. Should you track down this set to help you track down Emmet and the Piece of Resistance? Are you going to win a copy of it? You'll have to read and watch on to find out!
From the design of the box to the instruction manual, these are the first things you see before building the set.
I've run out of things to say about polybags. It's a plastic bag that shows you the set, the movie logo, and legal info. It gets the job done.
Half the fun is had building the set. How fun is it to build and how easy or challenging is it?
There's nothing crazy in this build, it's pretty much all studs up and goes together fast. You'll be done before you know it.
Now that the set is complete, we can critique how it looks from every angle. New or interesting pieces can also be examined here.
There's no new pieces here that we haven't seen in the other LEGO Movie sets, mainly the gun and the new minifig prints. The 4x6 modified plate is nice, as are a couple of the other pieces. Black and white are the main colors, with some grey and trans red and blue accents. Not a bad variety but nothing special.
Despite the unimpressive parts, the end product is actually pretty cool. The hinge pieces are used help create some nice shaping along with the 1x4 curved slopes and 1x2 grated slopes. The front is fairly smooth as well, although I'm not a fan of the hole showing in the 2x2 modified plate. The transparent pieces add some nice accents, adding lasers and police lights. It's definitely got some nice flow and looks like a neat little hovercar.
The lone minifig in this set is one of the robots on Lord Business' Super Secret Police force. We've seen the same fig in both 70807 Metalbeard's Duel and 70808 Super Cycle Chase, so there's nothing too exciting to see. I suppose that does make this set a good army builder if you want a huge Super Secret Police force or more SWAT uniforms for your LEGO City police.
The other half of the fun is in playing with the set. How well does the set function and is it enjoyable to play with?
This is probably the worst set in terms of playability of the three polybags. There's no one for the robot to fight and there's nothing for him to explore or find - he's just got his hovercar to fly around in. The vehicle itself is even lacking play features, not even flick-fire missiles. It is pretty swooshable so that certainly helps make up for it. It would have been nice to see a little more though.
I won't count this as a pro or con, but after having seen the movie itself, I don't recall seeing this ship in there at all. I might have missed it, but this is more likely just something that was thrown together for a polybag set, and not something based on the film.
Once it's all said and done, how does the set stack up? Should I get it?
What's to like?
- Swooshable vehicle
- Good source of SWAT minifig bodies
What's not to like?
- Lackluster build
- Mediocre part selection
- No play features
- Minimal roleplaying opportunities
Overall, there's no compelling reason to buy this set. The minifig is available in other sets, and the hovercar, while cool, is nothing too special. If you can get this free as part of a promotion or are looking for more SWAT bodies, then pick it up. Speaking of promotions though, make sure to watch the video review to see how you can have a chance to get this set for free!
