Review: 30406 Unikitty Roller Coaster Wagon

Here in the U.S., this week's gift with purchase at LEGO Shop at Home is 30406 Unikitty Roller Coaster Wagon.

I'll confess I don't know a lot about Unikitty except from what I've seen in both LEGO movies - I haven't seen any of the TV series.

That being said, let's take a quick look at this colourful little set.

I know Unikitty from the LEGO movies as being an impossibly cheerful character, all sweetness and light and smiles and sparkles (lots and lots of sparkles). I've also seen that she's someone you generally don't want to make mad! Fortunately for this polybag we have the sweetness and light version, with her pretty pink colour, and printed pieces for her face, eyebrows and tail.

The coaster car is not surprisingly similarly colourful, with blue, green, and (of course) pink pieces. Stars adorn each side. There's a slot in the front of the car from which discs can be fired.

Looking at the top of the car, we see there's a plunger in the back that can be pushed forward to propel the disc shooter. Three 2x2 round fuchsia tiles - representing sparkle matter (though they're not very sparkly) - provide ammunition for the car.

There's a space for Unikitty to ride on the car in between the sloped pieces. I originally thought this wasn't an ideal situation and Unikitty wouldn't stay in place, but it turns out that Unikitty is quite a snug fit in between the pieces and doesn't slide around at all.

The bag also provides quite a few extra pieces for a small set.

You can get Unikitty Roller Coaster Wagon through March 7 with a purchase of $25 or more, or while supplies last. It's a nice colourful little set, so if you're interested, there's still a couple days to pick one up.

Many thanks to the LEGO Group for providing Brickset a copy of the set. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

I'm pleasantly surprised. I thought this was going to be a car for the roller coaster system. I was concerned that it would be top heavy with all those bricks. Turns out to be full of character and interesting bricks. Thanks for the review.

I ask myself why I have paid $7 for this polybag..

I wasn't aware of this disc shooter element until now. Looking over the sets it's appeared in I guess they're just not in my wheelhouse. Even though it takes up more space I like it much better than the stud shooter alternative.

It's also $4 at Walmart in the USA if anyone doesn't want to spend the $25 at LEGO.

^^ It's a freebie at the Lego stores with a $25 purchase. I went there to burn some VIP points on the pick a brick wall last Friday and didn't even realize this was in my bag until I got home.

This was available at a target around Valentines Day. I picked up a few on clearance after the holiday. I’m holding off on buying until Marvel pack.

Nice little polybag; it'll be nice to add Unikitty to the collection. Anything official on the availability of the Avengers minifig pack, though?

Nice little polybag; it'll be nice to have Unikitty in the collection. I'm disappointed over the lack of Avengers minifg pack promotion though. I guess it's still coming?

I'm surprised to see this popping up as a freebie from the LEGO Stores.
It's actually an older polybag, one that I obtained early last year. I thought it was discontinued.

It's super cute and I'm always happy to get something free on a purchase I was going to make anyway, but it's not enough for me personally to motivate me to make an unplanned purchase.

This set has been for sale at the Toys R Us in Nanaimo for several months now. $4.99 each

I am disappointed that this is not an extra roller coaster car that I can add to my Creator Pirate Roller Coaster that I bought last summer.

Wasn't there a few roller coaster sets for the Unikitty theme? This'll go great with 'em!
