Set Review: 79118 Karai Bike Escape
Wednesday, July 30th, 2014 at 8:57am by Andrew, BZPower News Manager
Today we're taking a brief look at one of the sets from Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles licensed line of sets. 79118 Karai Bike Escape is the smallest TMNT set this year, so is it worth your time to trek to the store so you can add it to your collection? You'll have to watch our review to find out!
Once it's all said and done, how does the set stack up? Should I get it?
What's to like?
- Cheap way to get a Leonardo minifig
- Accurate NYC newsstand
- Street signs for real NYC streets
- Working play feature
What's not to like?
- Few, if any, new pieces/colors
- Poor price-to-parts ratio (but there is a motorcycle)
I'm pleased with the Karai Bike Escape, despite what may seem like a low value based on the price-to-parts ratio. The minifigs are great (especially Leo), it has a fun action feature, and the scenery, while simple, captures the feel of NYC. If you're looking for an entry point into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line or a way to add Leonardo to your collection, this is a set for you!
Thanks everyone for watching and reading - I hope you all enjoyed it! As always, questions, comments, and other feedback are welcome in the Talkback topic. And don't forget to keep checking BZPower for more set reviews and LEGO news!
