60157 Jungle Starter Set Review!

Hi everyone!

Today I’m dipping my toe into the LEGO City Jungle theme with 60157 Jungle Starter Set! This set retails for $9.99 in the US, and I think it retails for £8.99 in the UK and $19.99 in New Zealand.

I tend to like starter sets because they give you a good feel of the theme, several minifigures, all for a good price.

Here is the first figure. I believe her head and hair are reused but her torso is new. I like the dark orange coloring of her shirt and she looks good overall. She comes with a small grabber-stick (yes, I don’t know what it is), which I guess is used for catching snakes.

Here is the second figure in the set: a scientist. His white lab coat and his black hairpiece remind me of Dr. Wu from LEGO Ninjago the Jurassic World theme. I like his goofy expression with the blue glasses. He comes with a magnifying glass and a camera, but I have to question his logic: who brings test tubes in a shirt pocket to the jungle? 🤔

Here’s the third and final figure in the set. He is dressed like the female figure and I guess that’s the LEGO City Jungle outfit. I like his confident smile as well as the new LEGO machete piece.

You also get a crocodile in the set, which I love. I always like more LEGO animals.

Here is a tree! Note the lime green rattlesnake(?) above, as well as the yellow frog! More animals in different colors are always welcome! I believe the snake is a new mold and it looks fantastic.

If you open a hatch in the tree (??) then you can access three gold coins within! Just watch out for the snake…

Okay, we got the coins, let’s head back to base. But how do we get back to the base?

Ahh, here’s a nice boat! I like the twin propellers at the back as well as the jungle logo on the front. This will be a great boat to take the treasure back with! Too bad it only sits one… 😂

So I feel this is a great set. You get 3 good minifigures, a nice boat, a decent tree (with good animals), as well as a crocodile! The value is great and I recommend it if you want to get a feel of the LEGO Jungle theme.
