Codee Scorpion mini-review

TRU clearanced the Codee sets earlier this year so I bought this set (for $2) to pad out a purchase I was making at the time.


Basic concept is that you have a single strand of links and by following the coded instructions, you twist and turn each link until you have the finished product. "Construction" was more or less straightforward although there's a few times where you need to work ahead on the strand because it gets obstructed when it curves in on itself. There's not much you can do with the finished set as it's pretty much a statue and the accessories fall off rather easily which means it either becomes a display piece or you "disassemble" it to create something else. Not nearly as fun as a brick set. Interesting concept but I don't think anyone was surprised that it flopped.




  1. Interesting concept but yeah the creativity for MOC seems to be quite limited compared to bricks but the scorpion have a nice shape :D

  2. The shape don't look quite as convincing however if accessories (the claws and head piece) get taken off IMO. That's probably one of the biggest problems with these sets; without their included accessories, it takes a bit of imagination to realize what each set is supposed to represent.
