The LEGO Movie Creative Ambush Review (LEGO)

What It Is

The LEGO Movie: Creative Ambush from LEGO is a 473-piece building set from The LEGO Movie. The set builds a Saloon Bi-plane, Flying Kebab Stand, a Micro Manager Robot and the four minifigures of Kebab Bob, Sudds Backwash, Rootbeer Belle and Executive Ellen.

The Saloon Bi-Plane is an old-timey saloon-themed plane with shooting cannons on each wing, bomb-drop chests, a piano and shutter-rudders on the wings and tail. The Flying Kebab Stand has meat on a rotating spit, kebab flick missiles, chalk-board menu wings and lots of accessories like ketchup and mustard dispensers.

The Micro Manager robot has side flick missile and poseable legs and claws.

Is It Fun?

This is another hysterical set from The LEGO Movie that gives kids multiple vehicles and minifigures that they can use to restage scenes from the movie, or direct their own wacky adventures. Kids who have seen the movie will be the most likely to enjoy this because they will know who the characters are, but it's not essential.

Who It’s For

This set is for LEGO fans, ages 8 and up, but younger kids, especially fans of the movie will probably like it also. Kids who have seen the movie will recognize these characters but you don't have to see the movie to enjoy this set.

What To Be Aware Of

The directions are excellent and should take most LEGO builders around an hour to complete.
