This time though I needed roughly $5 for my online purchase to reach the $75 threshold for free shipping and the Winter Soldier minifigure/polybag.
Left to Right:
regular 1x1 brick, brick built larger brick (from Ant-man Final Battle), pepper shaker
Package illustrates how rubber stopper is removed from the bottom of each.
Small white & black 1x1 bricks shown are not included
They DO stack on top of each other. AND with SOME clutch power!
They were slightly smaller than I expected. This isn't really bad... just different than I anticipated.
Again the small white & black 1x1 bricks shown are not included
To salt or pepper, that is the question.
So one can loosely stack LEGO builds on top but NOT with any sort of clutch power. I'm sure someone will prove me wrong with a clever solution (maybe a snot technique or sorts). I hope so.
I tried to show how much space is between the "stud" and the "frame". Or... just how loose this connection is if that makes more sense.
I love the fun with scale one can have with these salt and pepper shakers. With the stoppers removed they look so much like a regular brick (only larger). Of course the holes in the top give them away as well.
I wish they came in more colors instead of just white and black.
At $6.99 it would seem expensive to purchase them for parts since that would be roughly $3.50 each. Compare the price to the larger "brick" storage containers though and it doesn't seem as bad (unless one of course wants a much larger "brick" like the storage containers).
Also consider that without purchasing these I would have paid over $5 in shipping and would not have received the Winter Soldier polybag (exclusive offer during June 2015). So in a sense this was the perfect time for me to purchase them.
For small paper weight or display on a desk I also recommend them... although they aren't very large (some may want a larger more easily seen brick "container").
Also for those in need of a salt and pepper shaker (for dispensing salt & pepper) this isn't a bad price at all compared to other salt and pepper shakers.
I had loads of fun considering photography possibilities with them and highly recommend them to any LEGO fan that loves photography and playing around with different scale ratios.
- Fun way to alter the scale of things (especially in photography)
- Cheap desk display or paper weight
- Inexpensive and practical Salt & Pepper shaker set
- Doesn't fit easily with other LEGO or DUPLO parts (although that isn't what they were intended to do... and someone may prove me wrong in the future).
- One may consider the price a negative... maybe. Although I'm ok with it.
- Only available in white & black
