Earlier this month, LEGO had a promotion for the Minifigure Travel Pack (5004932) with purchases of $35 or more. Here’s a little short review of the set with something special at the end.
The box that the Minifigure Travel Pack comes in has the design of a suitcase with printing of stickers throughout. Inside the box, there’s more printing of various LEGO elements that people may take on a trip.
The items inside the box include the instructions in the form of a passport, a bag of parts, and some signs.
There’s one minifigure included with this set and he’s nothing too special. The torso features the spaceman printing and green arms. It has been used before in previous sets but it’s still cool to get that particular one. The legs are medium blue and the cap that he wears is lime green.
There are lots of little builds that are in the set such as a beach chair with an umbrella, a mini sandcastle, a barbeque, and a camera on a tripod. There’s also a surfboard, a whip used as a fishing rod, some scuba gear, suitcase, and ice cream cone.
The idea of the set is to use these builds along with the minifigure and take picutres of them in various locations. In the back of the instructions, there are some images of the set at different locales.

This summer the world’s most popular toy will bring families closer to nature at WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre.
Giant LEGO brick sculptures will be at the attraction in Gloucestershire for eight weeks this summer from July 18 to September 6, alongside their living counterparts.
Visitors will be able to enjoy the trail of 10 individually-designed 4ft (1.5m) LEGO characters inspired by real species at WWT Slimbridge. Included are a large North American River Otter, an Andean Flamingo and a Bewick’s Swan.
Bristol designer Tom Poulsom with the team at Bright Bricks is busy creating the figures from the feet (or paws!) up.
Gary Haseley-Nejrup, Slimbridge General Manager, said:
“We are very excited to welcome this new species to WWT Slimbridge for the
summer. The first completed characters look fantastic, we can’t wait for them to be out in the wetlands surrounded by wildlife and think our visitors will be bowled over by them.
Families love being around nature at WWT Slimbridge and the LEGO brick trail is a fun way of putting the spotlight on some really important species, many of which are endangered.”
As well as the trail there will be a large LEGO brick play
