“ Brand: Lego / Theme: Toy Story / Age: 7+ „
Being a Lego fan and a Toy Story fan, and having the Tesco Vouchers (worth double value on toys) I couldn't resist buying this £19.99 kit for £10.
This is the Lego 7591 Toy Story Zurg kit. I have used it for my first attempt at Stop Frame Animation which is viewable on YouTube. This kit was ideal for this as it was a simple to build kit. This kit has a small number of pieces and most of them quite large. This would be ideal for any child to build, however there are a couple of very small studs which could be dangerous for really young children (well as dangerous as Lego could be).
This kit took me about 2 hours to build, but that was because I was moving bits, taking a pic, moving a little more, taking a pic, etc. I recon I could have built this within 30 mins.
Building this kit you get;
Zurg - a 9" tall creation. His arms are built fixed at the elbow (bent) however they are fully adjustable at the shoulders. His head and upper body can be turned fully. It also comes with a firm fabric cape. Zurg also has his gun with him, however it is only a single shot gun, rather than his triple shot. The kit does come with 3 yellow balls for shooting, which the gun will hold inside itself, so that you can continuously shoot 3 shots.
1x Green Alien - You also get a Green Alien in this kit, with moveable head and arms, however the feet/legs are fixed and can not be moved (this did cause me problems with my Stop Frame Animation)
This kit is great for those that love Lego and Toy Story, however I do not think it is worth £19.99 for only 118 pieces and pieces that are generally quite large, so not much skill is needed.
