#1400 SET REVIEW - Monkie Kid Wave 4 Review #2
Today we’re reviewing the last two sets of the latest Monkie Kid (wave 4): 80025 Sandy’s Power Loader Mech and 80026 Pigsy’s Noodle Tank. We were sent these sets by LEGO but our view is unbiased and we aim to provide a unique review from the perspective of a MOC builder and fan of building techniques. We score sets out of 100, giving 20 points each for a variety of factors.
Each of these sets are centered around two of Monkie Kid’s main allies: Sandy and Pigsy, and both sets have distinct color schemes that have been used since the beginning of Monkie Kid (Sandy’s being medium azure and orange and Pigsy’s being red, bright pink, and white).
In 80025 Sandy’s Power Loader Mech, Sandy gears up in his mech to fight the Spider Queen’s henchmen, Syntax and the Huntsman, along with his trusty cat, Mo, who gets some sunglasses and a sling bag as accessories for the first time! This is the smallest mech available as a main build, especially when comparing it to 80012 Monkey King Warrior Mech. Monkie Kid as a theme tends to have a small mech in most sets either for the good guys or bad guys, so it’s interesting to see them hit that middle scale of mechs, especially for a big-fig like Sandy.
In the TV show, 80026 Pigsy’s Noodle Tank is meant to be a transformation of 80009 Pigsy’s Food Truck. They share distinct similarities while the new Noodle Tank has its own fun details. The side builds include the staff of Speedy Panda, a rival noodle shop that challenges Pigsy and Tang to a ‘noodle off’ competition. Pan and Lee each have excellent printed torsos in the distinct teal, white, and black used by Speedy Panda.
