30032 World Race Buggy
Price Per Piece: $.08
LEGO Description: None as far as I can tell. It's a Target Holiday special! Go polybags!!
Straight to the nitty gritty! This set comes in a bag, not in a box! It's like milk in Canada! I can never sell the idea of bagged milk to anyone around here.
Above: Bagged LEGO
It makes sense for these small sets to be bagged. You can package a whole bunch more per box, they're lighter and if you were going to hand them out, for let's say Halloween or use them as a stocking stuffer, it makes sense to make them a little bit more malleable.
The back is just filler and disclaimers. There's a special code to join the LEGO club/receive an issue of the LEGO magazine, fairly standard kid's stuff.
Here's the minifigure that comes with the set. His name is 'Bubba Blaster' I believe, and he is sporting the most southern facial hair I think anyone could possibly come by these days. Like the rest of the World Racers minifigures he has excellent printing.
His back also has excellent printing! Go LEGO! There he is sporting his face covering. He looks much more menacing on this side of his head.
Unlike my other reviews you get to see the contents of the bag spilled out before your eyes. The reason for this is that it's so tiny and fun I just had to share it. Also I usually review the other sets after I build them. Woops. There aren't really any interesting pieces here. I can only think of one that stands out from the rest.
I don't recall seeing these before. I may be mistaken but I cannot place this piece anywhere else. I have a piece like this but it doesn't have the little circular indentations on the sides with the slop downwards.
Here's the flip side.
The instructions don't come in a book. They come in a little fold out piece of paper that's really really tiny. There's also some more instructions on the back.
Here's the completed product. Guess what? I also managed to fix my camera so the pictures are in focus now. Aren't I good? The build is pretty simple. With 35 pieces they put together a good presentation.
Here's the backside. The piece of interest I was eying goes over the back wheels. There's really not much else to say. It's basically a tiny car. I like it. It's fun to race around and the wheels roll well.
Would I recommend this set? Yes. It's cheaper than the impulse sets now, probably because it doesn't come in a box and it's really fun to just race around. They're also cheap and it comes with a great minifigure.
Come on guys, it's an impulse set. Go get it.
Playing with LEGO when I can. Where does the time go?

It is in a lot of the regular racers sets.
