Lego Scooby-Doo – The Mystery Machine (75902) Review

75902_main

Lego Scooby-Doo – The Mystery Machine (75902): So I realized due to some timing that I needed to buy myself a set to hit review scheduling, and daunted with such options of the local toy aisle I saw this and immediately realized I needed it in my life. Partly because while there is a whole line I didn’t want to miss out and have this end up being 5 times the price a few years from now, but also because I loved Scooby-Doo growing up, and this is a perfect display piece. (Well once you put away the zombie and tree)

What Else?

So as you may noticed there’s been a change away from trying to get pictures on my coffee table. This is mostly because it was always such a pain to find a good time for when the lighting is right, and moving all the books and other such material on it. The other upside of this change is that I can work on improving lighting overall (my technique that is), and because of a camera setup I can start adding knoll and build gifs of which this review will be the first!

And the build (at least the van itself)

 

Remix: So with that iconic side panel, I felt the only course of action was to make my own ‘Mystery Machine’. It’s got dials and panel, and the round things – as for what it does? Well the world may never know. (Debated putting scary face on there, but he’s the 1 piece w/o instead)

Final Thoughts: What else can I say? This is a perfect set for 30 of your US dollars, and if you had any sort of childhood watching this cartoon and playing with Lego please do. This is the set 7 year old you wanted then, and the set 20 or 30 year old you wants now.

Final Score: 5 out of 5 Stars
