Lego Dots 41958: Additional Dots Sequence 7 – The Recreation [Review] – Brothers Brick

Seems to be prefer it was solely a matter of yesterday (nicely, that was again in January) after we took a take a look at 6 packs of the Xtra Dots collection. However now the most recent iteration of the collectible Tile Semi-Blind Pack has arrived 41958 Additional Dots Sequence 7 – Recreation. They’re now accessible from The Lego Store On-line for US$3.99. $4.99 can | UK £3.49, and we purchased some so you may see what’s up. As a result of we love you.


baggage and supplies

The Additional Dots Sequence 7 pack has a listed half variety of 115, down from Sequence 6 to three. As at all times, it options 10 “gorgeous decos”—a random mixture of printed tiles from a gaggle of 16 new designs for this collection. The printed tiles are 1×1 sq. this time, with a great variety of designs displayed on the entrance of the packaging.


components

Not like the earlier Many Dots Additional packs, no new molds have been launched right here. Nevertheless, with a brand new clear shade and a rarer shade, you get a great vary of colours and sizes. As is customary follow with Lego on small, simply misplaced items, they “overfill” every factor with an additional copy. This pushes a bag’s precise half depend to 123 items (up from the 115 listed).

  • 16 darkish blue quarter circle tile
  • 16 Teal Quarter Circle Tile
  • 16 Beaded Darkish Blue 1×1 Spherical Tile (New Coloration)
  • 16 Vibrant Yellow 1×1 Spherical Tiles (one other kind – the primary 41950 had plenty of dots-lettering)
  • 16 coral quarter-circle tile
  • 16 mild blue-gray quarter-circle tile
  • 11 Printed 1×1 Sq. Tile
  • 16 Aqua 1×1 Spherical Tile


printed tiles

The theme of the Sequence 7 is “Sport”, and that is mirrored within the designs on the printed tiles. As a result of Lego’s on-line ordering limitations, I used to be solely in a position to get a 3 pack, however that was sufficient to get 11 out of 16 designs. With a more in-depth examination of the packaging (and people flying in different Dots merchandise from this wave), I used to be in a position to find the opposite 5 designs – they’re proven right here with a blue border.

Further Dots continues to develop the total vary of printed tiles. As a lot as I really like these, I ponder how Lego balances the amount right here towards their acknowledged coverage of utilizing stickers to assist with stock issues.


Conclusion and suggestion

Xtra Dots Sequence 7 is… OK. I really like the brand new opalized clear darkish blue tiles, and among the designs on the printed tiles are so cute. However past that, there is not a lot innovation on this growth of the collection. I think about a second new shade for one tile would elevate issues, or perhaps going with a 10-count of every half and including in a couple of extra tile choices. Except you want these components for a challenge or need to make a whole set of printed tiles, I’d most likely cross on these. Or use them as a low-cost different to push your Lego orders above a restrict to purchase or present with one thing. (However, actually, decide up a pack of Sequence 6 as an alternative.)


41958 Additional Dots Sequence 7 – The Recreation Accessible now from The Lego Store On-line for US$3.99. $4.99 can | UK £3.49. They might even be accessible by way of third occasion sellers on Amazon and eBay.
