LEGO Movie 70811 The Flying Flusher

The last of the 2-in-1 sets to review, The Flying Flusher is an interesting one. In what I think is a first for LEGO, this set consists of an outdoor toilet cubicle and plumber van. These transform into the Flying Flusher to shoot... erm... toilet things at the bad guy.

Box Contents

Inside the box we have:

  • 3 x Instruction Booklets
  • 3 x bags of parts
  • 1 x Sticker Sheet

There are 350 parts in this set, as shown in the full inventory. The 15118 16L ladder is new in White, but there are no other new parts.

Minifigs

There are three minifigs in this set: Plumber Joe, Alfie the Apprentice and Dr McScrubs. The Doctor has two faces: the smug look, and the standard help-im-getting-chased-by-an-evil-robot look. The plumbers have identical torso/leg prints.

Build

The Micro Manager is a little different to usual. It has legs that foldaway into its body, which are a bit unstable and require a bit of finessing to get it to stand properly. But otherwise, follows the same pattern as the other movie sets with two claws, a couple of flick-missiles and lots of red eyes.

Probably may favourite part of the whole set, the outdoor toilet is built next. It's a pretty clever design, making novel uses of the basket + life preserver parts. Although, I'm not sure if it's technically possible for a portable toilet to spray water like that.

The Plumber Van also looks great, and is a quick build. The two plungers making use of the recent Inverted Dome part are a great idea.

To make the Flying Flusher, the Toilet and Plumber Van models need to be taken apart :( Making the plane out of those parts is pretty inventive, although you soon realise why the toilet's walls are made from wing parts. The photos for this plane didn't turn out that great though, I messed up the lighting settings so everything looks a bit overexposed.

I think the plunger's are supposed to be machine gun bullets, or rockets, mounted on the roof of the plane. I guess it looks pretty neat, but they are flick-powered and hence useless. If you try to fire one, you will probably destroy the entire plane (or is that just me?). The water cannons on the wings are a nice touch, especially the manual valves required to operate them.

Summary

I think there is plenty of novelty value in this set, has LEGO ever created a toilet before? Similarly to the Castle Cavalry set, I prefer the normal models (Van + Toilet) vs the transformed Flying Flusher.
