40341 LEGO Xtra Sea Accessories – A set review
The LEGO xtra line caused quite a stir in the AFOL world when it first landed as it represented an easy, relatively inexpensive way for consumers to get accessory packs through official retail methods. Be it to complement their existing LEGO cities or just as small add-ons to existing sets, there is no longer a need to get a $10 or $20 playset just to get a few bicycles or surfboard.
LEGO will launch their next wave in the xtra theme on 2019. In this article, we will take a closer look at 40341 LEGO Xtra Sea Accessories.
For this polybag, obviously a lot of sea related accessories are included, some actually are in the sea but most are things that you might find on the beach or on a pirate ship.
No instructions, maybe urged on by the fact that the one buoy shown in the front image of the pack is pretty straightforward to build up from the parts.
The biggest impact definitely is the shark. Some may even be tempted to create their own shark army or to recreate scenes from the latest Superhero movie, Aquaman.
The jaws open and close with a hinge mechanism after you fit in the upper jaw.
The parrot may seem to be an unlikely animal to be featured in a sea accessory pack but is always closely associated with pirates in classical tales, this one in particular comes in a yellow and blue hue. With the addition of accessories like a pair of binoculars, a treasure map, a chest and some gems, it makes a perfect set for a treasure hunt role play.
The breakdown of the set which officially contains 24 parts are as below.
1 Wooden Barrel
1 Wooden Chest
2 Flippers (+ 1 extra)
1 Star (+1 extra)
2 Brown lightsaber hilts
2 Brown bars
2 Spear Tips
1 white 1×1 round plate (+1 extra)
1 trans red 1×1 round plate (+1 extra)
1 Treasure Map
2 Trans blue Gems (+1 extra)
1 Blue/Yellow Parrot
1 Orange Traffic Cone
1 Black 2×2 rounded stand
Overall, we feel the set is a pretty nifty accessory pack and one that helps in the seafaring adventures for kids and kids at heart alike.
Set will enter retail sales on LEGO.com and in LEGO stores worldwide in Jan 2019. LEGO.com listed price : USD3.99 per pack.
