The striking Assault Symbiont Syrinx is described by Djokson as a “Surgical precision instrument.” Which reminds me of a precision timepiece. You know, like the LEGO Clikits watch that’s serving as this figure’s head. That’s just one example of the creative part usage here, too. Check out that neck ring made by a Spinjitzu rotor, or those transparent-blue garage door panels. Even the “hands” use uncommon parts like metal train axles. It’s kind of sad that “Assault” is part of this creature’s function – the colors and shaping remind me more of a medical droid. I suppose that’s just the sort of great camouflage an Assault Symbiont would lean into, though.
LEGO has officially revealed its long-rumored new product line, LEGO Dots. The initial wave of the 2D tile-based arts and crafts theme features bracelets, picture holders, a jewelry stand, a pencil pot, and the first in a series of “Extra Dots” emoji booster packs. Prices vary from US $3.99 to 19.99 with availability beginning on March 1st.
The spiritual successor to LEGO’s previous Clikits play-jewelry product line, the Dots theme centers on colorful 1×1 tiles (square, round, quarter-circle and new gem tiles) with bright colors and expressive prints including emojis, rainbows, glitter, animals, space, music, and more. (Keen-eyed readers will also note that several of the tiles have appeared previously in 21045 Trafalgar Square’s hidden art gallery.)
