SSC: More Cheapo Sets

Postby Hackjob » Tue Jan 26, 2016 6:26 pm

Well like I said here: Dollar Store Sets, I purchased a few of these and here are the others. These builds follow the Single Set Challenge criteria.


First the Police set. This wasn't a very good set parts-wise, lots of blocks and plates too big for 7p mecha. But I managed an okay frame I think. Looks to me like its amed with a Laser Cannon, 40mm Autocannon, Armor Plating, and a Jet Pack. Handy for direct assaults, I think I'll call it the Pacifier or the Placebo. I also got some 1 hit cover and an Ordinace disposal station from the set.

Next the Construction set, I had higher hopes for this set it has -ooh headlight bricks, and 1 wide plates, plus the minifig tools look like they could make good sensor greebles. Unfortunatley, the minifig tools that came with it are different than what is pictured on the box. But I do like how the frame came out. I also got a few fun terrain pieces. Thie big one is some kind of scrap/garbage atomizer with scary lightning bolts zapping between the contacts- don't get too close!

Although I'm pretty happy with what I made, the quality of these bricks is waayyy below Lego. Buyer beware. You think I might have learned my lesson, but no! :lol:

Those were great! Interesting use of plates everywhere.

I have that exact same cop Minifig, it's so bad it's hilarious! :D

Thanks! Even though these aren't great sets, I'm pretty happy with the frames I was able to make out of them. And yeah the minifigs are terrible!
