LEGO Creator 3-in-1 sets have always been popular as they include instructions for three alternate models. Houses, cars, airplanes, robots, dinosaurs and various other animals are some of the most common topics of these sets, and they are getting better with each year! 🙂
Cute creatures like the ones in the #31031 LEGO Creator Rainforest Animals from 2015 and the #31044 LEGO Creator Park Animals from 2016 are particularly well-liked (see below), along with cool robots like the #31007 LEGO Creator Power Mech from 2013 and the #31035 LEGO Creator Future Flyers from 2015 (see below). This year LEGO managed to combine coolness with cuteness in the #31062 LEGO Creator Robo Explorer 3-in-1 set (see above), which is already flying off the shelves due to its irresistible charm.
The main model in the #31062 LEGO Creator Robo Explorer is the explorer robot, with almost as much personality as the #21303 LEGO Ideas Wall-E. The chunky look, big expressive eyes, and extensive posability makes this little guy a favorite playmate for kids and desk-buddy for adults.
It is also interesting to note that the tracks and the color-scheme are reminiscent of the LEGO Johnny Five submission by PepaQuin on LEGO Ideas (based on the 1986 science fiction comedy film “Short Circuit”) that achieved 10,000 votes, but was ultimately rejected by LEGO. This is probably the best robot LEGO ever released, and it even has a working searchlight!
The second model in the #31062 LEGO Creator Robo Explorer is the Robot Bird. Here, the light is transferred over to the head, to give the bird glowing eyes. I really like the stubby beak and flappy wings. Kind of like a combination of a puffin and an Australian kakapo. Super adorable.
The third model in the #31062 LEGO Creator Robo Explorer is the Robot Dog, oozing with the cuteness of a puppy and the high-tech coolness of a robot. In this model the light is incorporated into a jetpack, so this little pup can glow and fly! The cuteness is just too much! In the video-review below by JANGBRiCKS you can see all three models in more detail.
As all three robots are excellent, it is hard to choose which one to build and keep on display. However since the set is only $19.99, it is perfectly reasonable to get more than one set. Just sayin’…. It is available at various LEGO retailers, and you can also find it at the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
What do you think? How do you like the LEGO Creator Robo Explorer? Which one is your favorite model of the three? Are there any other LEGO Creator 3-in-1 sets that you really like? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
