The pods that these small Lego kits came in were designed to fit in a pocket so that no matter where you were you could pull out your Lego pod and start to build.
This Lego X-Pod range was like a sub-range of the Lego Creator series and each kit could create a number of different things limited only by your child'simagination.
The X-Pods released in 2004 were -
- Black Robot Pod
- Robo Pod
- Auto Pod
- Aero Pod
- Wild Pod
Black Robot Pod - 4335
This is a hard to find Lego product with the following features -
* Idea Book with instructions and inspiration for 6 robot models — quick to build and rebuild for hours of fun!
* Handy carry case with studs — build it right into your models!
* Unique assortment of LEGO elements — great shapes and awesome colors!
* Fits into backpacks, pockets and more for on-the-go play!
* Combine with other X-Pods to build cool combo models!
An interesting snippet for you is that this Black Robot Pod was released for Halloween which might explain the color scheme of black and orange!
Robo Pod - 4346
Of course, as with all of the Lego x-pods there is no limit to the number of different models you can actually build!
This green set comes in a clear ‘pod’ with green lids to match the robots you can make with the set.
Auto Pod - 4347
There are also instructions for building different Lego models – a bulldozer, truck, and rolling robot.
These models however are only for inspiration because the key to all of the x-pod sets is that your imagination is the only thing that will stop the number of different models you’ll be able to create.
Aero Pod - 4348
The pod as you can see is one of the transparent ones and comes with yellow lids, the bricks inside are also predominately yellow as you can see from the picture.
I actually can’t tell you much about this particular set as I haven’t seen it myself and there aren’t as many reviews available as I would like, but if it’s like the other X-Pod sets then I’m sure it’s fantastic and no doubt will come with instructions for a few models.
Lego Wild Pod - 4349
The instuctions that come with this Lego pod show you how to make seven different creatures from a crawling bug to a flying dragonfly, but as with all of these sets the instructions are only the start.
I haven’t actually seen the instruction book or played with this pod, but I have seen a dragon made from just this set and I was very impressed!
Lego X-Pods Are An Awesome Idea!
Most of this particular range are unavailable through many outlets so I recommend looking on ebay for them, if there's a particular one you're after be sure to search with the set number.
