Thomas is a big fan of LEGO, but he doesn’t have much experience with the Chinese Lego brands yet. His first order ever was a Lego Bumblebee Transformers Robot from China (produced by Gudi). How did he like it?
At first, Thomas didn’t plan to make an article about it, so as he constructed the robot first, he didn’t make any photos, nor video. But, he was very satisfied with the robot, and it wasn’t even that hard to create. In other words, Thomas believes that people with some building skills from the age of 8 and up will manage to construct the robot quite easily.
The price of the product as Thomas bought it was 8 USD.
The instructions manual looks very similar to the one from Lego, but you should expect the steps to be harder to follow. Thomas felt this as they often include several steps and bricks in the same instruction, and sometimes these depend on one another, which can make it feel complicated. They will also instruct you on how to build both legs at the same time and both sides of the car, meaning that you will have to calculate a bit in the head as you construct (with real Lego they show you both sides step by step).
Thomas builds the Gudi Bumblee car
The car was a bit harder to construct than the robot, but still not very hard! The finished product looks really cool until you start playing a lot with it. Unfortunately, both the door and the window are really easy to tear off, meaning that a kid who wants to open and close the door, will be sure to make it fall of every single time he makes a move. The same is quite true if you try to make the window go up or down. Take a look at the video to see how easy it is.
Is Thomas happy about the Bumblebee Lego from Gudi?
What is the destiny of most Lego? You construct it, play with it for 5 minutes, and then you throw it away somewhere and the next time you want to play with it, some parts are missing. In other words, the process of constructing it is actually 85% of the actual fun. If that is true, then this was a great robot! The stability of the car in use wasn’t the best, but since Thomas isn’t going to spend much time actually playing with it, he doesn’t
Thomas almost forgot to mention it, but this is very important. The Gudi bricks are 100% compatible with your existing original Lego bricks.
