Review: Lego 21109 Exo Suit

Pieces: 321  Minifigures: 2  Retail Price: $34.99  Price I Paid: $34.95+tax

This is the first Lego Ideas set I’ve gotten.

The minifigures are named Pete and Yve.

The box opens in a special way and has a nice bound instruction booklet.

The set also comes with a platform and “barrels” and a robotic guard turtle.

The “claws” are perfect for picking up the barrels… or Pete.

The back of the suit is nicely detailed as well.

Well as you might be able to tell from the large number of pictures I took, I love this set. I was always looking forward to it and now I’m very glad I managed to get one when they cmae back in stock last week on Amazon. They are out of stock once again right now, hopefully back in stock soon.

This has got to be one of the most creative Lego sets to come out recently and it’s popularity should inform Lego of how important the Space theme is but more importantly how much people enjoy complex and creative sets. I love the green space suits as well. The only thing I wish it possessed was one more articulation in the arms so that they could fold out away from the body. This likely would have made the set too unwieldly though. The price is decent given that it comes with a fancy box and manual. Obviously it hasn’t prevented anyone from buying one so far. I’ll give this set a 9. As I’ve said before a 10 is going to be hard to get, but this is close. Maybe if it was $30 and actually in stock on a regular basis it would get there. Don’t take it from me, buy one now! LEGO Ideas Exo Suit 21109
Er, now as in, when they’re back in stock.
