What interest me is that at random pages of the instruction booklet, there is a quote from each character. I presume its their famous quote in the series as I don't watch the show at all.

Overall thoughts.

TLG retained most of the original design of the submission. However, I prefer the original submission's DNA strand better (picture below). As for the local RRP point, well, although a little pricey, but this set does feature 7 minifigs with a detailed living hall and plenty of spares especially good for City and Modular fans (They included the full cutlery pack for only 2 forks used in the set!!!)

Hope you enjoy the review as much as I reviewed and built it. Thanks for reading.

Thanks for the review. Parts assortment looks good Smile

I'm sure this set will do well in countries where the program is showing. Then again, fans can be anywhere these days. There is a following after all to warrant it being produced as a LEGO set.

I'm waiting for this set. I am glad there are no stickers in this set. Most of the elements are printed. I hope I could get cheaper price for this set..
