“ Theme: Make & Create „
Lego has been a large part of my childhood and it has been to many other also.
This set was released in 2004 and boasted some cool new ideas and parts.
Basically anyone new to Lego should know that its basically different inter-connecting building blocks. Many different sizes and shapes, which join together easily to create pretty much anything you can imagine.
The set was called "Make and create : Titan XP" number 4508, in case anyone want to search and buy it!
The box is in the usual Lego fashion, hints of bright yellow on the sides and edges, with a super image of the robot on the front to really sell the item. On the back you have some more images of other potentially possibilities that you can create with the pieces. The main images are of some kind of flying spaceship style vehicle and a two legged walking robot - looks like it belongs in Star wars.
The robot is constructed from many parts, and the main colour is light grey, but there are some other colours in there too, orange and a pale blue make it into the set. This really make certain parts stand out.
If you see the picture you will see what I mean!
Once you open the box you will see your parts bags and the instructions booklet. As with all Lego instructions they are all in colour and simple to follow so anyone can really build these sets. However younger children may need help, or to be supervised so that the parts go on the robot and not anywhere else, although the recommended age group for this is 9+, so younger children below this age may have difficulty in building or are too young for the parts as they contain a few small ones. So supervision is a definite!!
The kit also gives you the instructions to build 4 different models and to add to this 13 inspirational ideas for you to create your own ideas too. Ho kind of Lego!!
Once built you will be a proud constructor of the mechanical colossus which stands 12 inches in height, which is 30cm for those of you who want metric or imperial measurements!
So a Lego kit which is relatively easy to build, looks great and gives the opportunity as with any Lego set to be rebuilt in as many ways as the imagination can flow!
Well done Lego for another top quality product that looks and feels of superb quality, worth the money, oh yes. If you have kids that like robots this is a winner!! You may have to search around some what but I have seen prices around £15.
Deconstruct your titan and a build a robot army of your own!!!
