Not sure why I thought this would be all 3 pictured. You can only build 1 at a time. My kid builds them once and then crashes them, looses the pieces. He didn't choose wisely and built the squid first. Didn't get to make the other two - missing pieces now.
As always with the Creator 3-in-1, an impressive set of sea creatures. Despite the main build being the shark, many of the other designs haven't been done multiple times in LEGO and are wonderfully crafted. (there's even a 4th build instructions on the LEGO website) Though it is an unusual choice to include the second tiny creature and treasure to be built from this Creations set at the same time as the main build, there's still a great variety of parts that could be useful for other imaginative designs!
Love love this set! My six year old was able to build it himself with minimal help. He was anxious to play it so skipped a step or two. 😉 Love that you can build it into 3 different sets: shark/crab, Squid , Anglerfish/Angelfish. There is a forth one you can get instructions online for a whale/small squid. Biggest plus is the ability to bend the body of larger fish for play.
I am an avid Lego girl. I have many many sets. I like this one, and bought one for my friend’s son as well. I love that you can build multiple items. My only complaint is that my set came with several pieces missing (her son’s didn’t have any missing thankfully). I’ve never had a set with missing pieces. That said, Lego is awesome and has a section on their site where you can order the missing parts for free. I ordered mine and they came within a week. Set fixed, problem solved. I took a star off for inconvenience.
Just on a price-per-part basis, this set is grossly under-priced. It's a new set, why is it already getting 25% discounts? 12 bucks for 230 pieces?! Sure, no included figures, but it has four great builds.
There are some really interesting building techniques too, like how the eyes are built in the shark's head. And it's even a good parts pack, with lots of useful dark blue pieces and ball joints. The builds are bigger than they appear on the box. The shark is satisfyingly chunky.
Best $20 and under set for 2019, tied with Benny's Space Squad.
This is such a cute set, the shark is so awesome! All the pieces are great, my son has really enjoyed playing with the shark and crab. Love that we can make 4 different options with this one set. However I do wish it came with a LEGO separator.
The build was really fun! Both the shark and crab both look great and have a ton of posability. These look great on display in my room. I think it’s pretty good as a parts pack too since you get some ball-joint pieces and a handful of dark blue pieces. It’s great for building your own creatures.
My 7 year old absolutely loves this set. Each of the creatures are equally fun and well designed, so much so that I will probably get him multiples because obviously he needs to have a shark AND an angler fish to play with! Even the teeth are so detailed and well done. He built the shark and then immediately took it apart to build the other creatures, all on his own. Instructions are great as with all LEGO sets. Probably his favorite LEGO set of all time. I hope they make more sea creature sets soon!
