Comic Con Exclusive CubeDudes Review

by

Hi all, sorry about the long span between posts. Comic Con does take a lot out of me.

SW CubeDudes 1

For all of those who couldn’t make it to Comic Con, or didn’t get a chance to buy one of the exclusive Star Wars CubeDude sets, here’s your chance to at least see what was inside it.

Angus MacLane was nice enough to sign mine. He signed for about an hour on two different days. It was really nice to see him again. :)

Here’s what actually comes in the box. I can hear the gasps from here. Yes, I opened the box! 8O The nice thing about this exclusive is that you can gently pull the sticker up to open the box without really damaging it. One thing you can’t tell from the pictures is that the instruction booklet has glossy silhouettes of the CubeDudes. It looks really cool, but really hard to photograph.

Here’s what a random page in the instructions look like. The instructions are a little bit strange. They look a little like they were thrown together at the last minute and some of the steps are a little interesting. Angus actually told me about that when he was signing my box.

Each figure is in its own bag, which makes it easy to build them. The models each take only a few minutes to build and its a nice way to learn how to make a CubeDude.

The final built figures. Yoda is my favorite, but then he’s always been one of my favorites. :D

Overall I’d say it is a very cool exclusive. $75 is a little pricey, but considering the price of last year’s exclusives (six of which were just minifigs), 5 CubeDudes at $15 each isn’t too bad. At least you can do something with the exclusive once you get it home — that is if you open the box. ;)

    Will LEGO sell them on shop.lego.com?

    • Mariann Asanuma Says:

      No they will not sell this CubeDude set online or anywhere else as it was an exclusive for Comic Con only. The only way to buy them now is on ebay or bricklink.com

  2. Will Says:

    Can you scan the instruction for all of us that didn’t make it? So we could build them too.

    • Mariann Asanuma Says:

      Sorry, but no I will not scan the instructions as Angus is my friend and I respect his design.
