LEGO recently launched a new line inspired by the characters and scenes from the new LEGO DREAMZzz series.

These new sets (11 sets have been launched so far) have a very interesting characteristic, as they encourage children (it is a line created with children over 6 years old in mind) to give wings to their imagination, being able to create vehicles or creatures according to their wishes and your imagination.

Today we are going to analyze one of these sets, the 71453 Izzie and Bunchu the Bunny.

From the outset it can be seen that some aspects are different between the animated character and the one made in LEGO and I think that this happens to make the set more options to play with.

The Bunchu figure measures 19 cm (7.4 inches) tall, including his big ears, which compared to the minifigures seems to me to be an accurate scale.

Something that really pleased me was that Bunchu has several pieces of articulation, which allows you to create a lot of movements and even expressions, since the ears are also articulated. As usual, the colors of the articulated pieces are the basic ones (light and dark grey) and this is very noticeable as it creates a strange contrast with the tones of the figure.

Something I really liked was the head area, as they opted, and well, for a printed piece for the face. Also, the colors chosen to make the rest of the head were very well-chosen, with colors that suit the character well. Incidentally, the character is built with a good diversity of bright colors, where light blue stands out.

The construction is very interesting, but there are big differences between what you see in the series and with the construction, but I think it’s understandable, as it was designed so that kids can play, and a lot, with these sets.

The trunk zone is one of the less accomplished zones, despite that we found the Dreamcatchers emblem, which was a nice touch. Fortunately, the tail, hands and feet were well done. For example, large feet provide a stable base for the figure, which can comfortably stand on one leg or in dynamic running poses.

Something very interesting about these sets is that they can be partially assembled for different situations. In this case, a selection of parts are included to build skates and create gloves. But that doesn’t stop there, as it is possible to use these pieces for various changes to Bunchu’s character.

Each member of the Dream Chasers team has very colorful outfits, and Izzie is an excellent example, perhaps being one of the best characters.
Something that immediately stands out is the hair, as it is a very interesting mix of colors and translucent tones. Also, the texture is well achieved.

The shoulder armor isn’t new, but we can find it here in a new color, lilac.
Then, the colors chosen for both the torso and the legs are excellent, with well-crafted details. For example, the legs are double molded, where I highlight the boots that are the same color as the shoulder armor. A nice detail.

As extras, the minifigure has an hourglass and a double-molded and very well-made sword. In addition, we have Bunchu in the form of a plush, here with a new color.

Then we have a Grimspawn, the nightmare creature, which we find in several sets of this theme. He has a black helmet, with a transparent pink plume. Despite being small, it is possible to use accessories under the arms. For example, here we have a hammock accessory.
