Toys R Us Canada had another Lego Make and Take Event. Back by popular demand (so, they say) is Emmet's car.
I certainly wasn't expecting the lineup when I got to the store. The line for the free Emmet car snaked from the front all the way to the back of the store. A TRU employee handed out little tickets and instruction sheets to either build the 40 piece car or the 32 piece flying car.
At the front of the line, TRU had setup a long table, where all the separate Lego pieces were in their own little boxes. On the front of the box, was marked how many pieces you needed for the set.
One was given a little baggie and you helped yourself to the parts from each of the boxes as prescribed. Some kids chose to build their cars on the spot, while others left with the parts and instructions to build at home.
It looks just like a SMART car . Nice touches on the side mirrors, although I wish they had somehow incorporated a rear window.
Taillights, a license plate and rear bumper would have been a bonus. Might have to see if I can add them later without altering the style of the car.
Opening doors is a plus.
All in all, a nice little build.
Set: Emmet's car (no set number)
Number of pieces: 40, as built.
