Seems to be prefer it was simply yesterday (okay, it was in January) once we regarded on the 6 packs of the Further DOTS collection. However now the most recent iteration of half-blind packing boards has arrived 41958 Further DOTS Collection 7 – SPORT. They’re now obtainable at LEGO Store On-line for $ 3.99 CAN $ 4.99 | UK £ 3.49 and we purchased some so you’ll be able to see what is going on on. As a result of we love you.
Bag and contents
The variety of elements within the Further DOTS Collection 7 packs is 115, which is 3 lower than within the Collection 6. As ordinary, it comprises 10 “shock decos” – a random mixture of printed plates from the 16 redesigned teams on this collection. The printed plates are this time 1 × 1 squares and there are lots of designs on the entrance of the bundle.
Not like many earlier DOTS add-ons, no new varieties are launched right here. Nevertheless, you get a variety of colours and shapes with one new clear colour and one uncommon shade. As is the same old observe for small, simply misplaced items in LEGO, they’re “overfilled” with an extra copy of every factor. This will increase the precise variety of elements within the bag to 123 (listed from 115).
- 16 Darkish blue quarter plate
- 16 Inexperienced quarter-round plate
- 16 pearl darkish blue 1 × 1 spherical tiles (NEW COLOR)
- 16 Vibrant Yellow 1 × 1 Spherical Plate (Second Look – 1st launched 41950 A number of DOTS – Lettering)
- 16 Coral quarter-round plate
- 16 Mild blue-gray quarter-round plate
- 11 Printed 1 × 1 sq. plate
- 16 Aqua 1 × 1 spherical plate
The theme of the seventh collection is “SPORT” and that is mirrored within the designs of the printed discs. Because of the limitations of LEGO on-line ordering, I used to be solely capable of get three packages, however that was sufficient to get 11 out of 16 designs. After fastidiously analyzing the packaging (and the flyers of different DOTS merchandise on this wave), I used to be capable of finding the opposite 5 designs – they’re proven right here with a blue border.
The whole vary of additional DOTS printed plates continues to develop. Nevertheless, as a lot as I like them, I’ve to consider how LEGO balances the quantity right here with their introduced coverage of utilizing stickers to resolve storage issues.
Conclusion and suggestion
Further DOTS Collection 7 is okay. I like the brand new opalescent clear darkish blue plates and a number of the printed plate designs are very cute. However in addition to, there aren’t many updates to this collection extension. I believe one other new colour for the tiles would have lifted issues up, or possibly it will take 10 of every half into consideration, plus a number of extra tile selections. When you do not want these elements for a challenge or do not wish to construct an entire set of printed plates, I am going to in all probability move them on. Or simply use them as an inexpensive method to elevate your LEGO order above the reward threshold with a purchase order or one thing else. (However actually, take the sixth collection pack as an alternative.)
41958 Further DOTS Collection 7 – SPORT is now obtainable at LEGO Store On-line for $ 3.99 CAN $ 4.99 | United Kingdom £ 3.49. They could even be obtainable by means of Amazon and eBay third-party sellers.
