I bought a couple more Ionix Bricks How To Train You Dragon Building sets. I found Toothless (#20001) and Stormfly (#20003) at Target. Target has the sets for $5.99 temporary reduced to $5.69. They are on sale this week along with many other How to Train Your Dragon toys.
I did not take step by step pictures this time. In general the sets were easier to build than Barf and Belch set. The brick was different and it transformed easier than that set. The body brick was the same for Toothless (17 pieces) and Stormfly (14 pieces). You can see from this image that the neck is sturdier than the one I blogged about last week.
There was some difficulty building Stormfly. The underbelly did not want to stay together. The instructions were to put 2 one by two bricks on the body the attach the belly part. It was easier to attach the one by twos to the belly then the belly to the body.
Toothless was easier to build. I like the way the tail was made of ball pieces with studs on them. It looks more like a spine than a single piece would. This also gives the tail more articulation. I like the painting and colors on both sets the heads are well done.
Foolish Lego asked if the figures were sturdy. They are and they aren’t. Toothless and Stormfly are sturdier than Barf and Belch. Parts did not just fall off of them. But pieces can snap off and that is part of the design. The build for Toothless had me remove part of a brick flip it over and reattached it. They are designed to give instead of break but I wouldn’t let little kids play with them.
Ionix Bricks are sold at Target, Toys R us, and Wal-mart. But I haven’t seen the How To Train your Dragon sets at Wal-mart.
