#711 of Year 2 Lego 8638 Cars 2 Spy Jet Escape

The first wave of the Lego Cars 2 sets were well liked by me and when I had the chance to grab the next couple of sets, I took them.  This is one of the two sets, and potentially the better of the two according to my tastes since there isn't a fascade to "play" with.

The front of the box shows off everything nicely, including recreating the scene from the movie.  The back shows the cars in the box, as well as the features of the jet.

The big box contains only four baggies, a decal sheet and the instruction book.  That's quite a letdown.

Baggie number 1 builds Tow and Holly.  Holly is missing her glasses.  Sadly.  Tow is the same as most other sets.

Baggie number 2 builds the two bad guys - Grem and and Acer.  I like how Lego took two very similar builds and made them look so different.

Baggie number 3 builds the bottom fuselage of the jet...

... while Baggie number 4 completes it.  The jet looks great from the front, but from the sides, there's a "hole" where the ramp meets the jet - not the best of construction design.

Baggie number 4 also includes parts to build the police car version of Finn.  He does look... interesting.  Most of the car is brand new, but Finn's eyes piece is used on this model.

Overall, the set contains six great characters.  The jet plane could have been better and Tow and Holly are obviously redos of previous models, with the Holly being not as well done as the smaller set.
