I received an interesting gift today. It was the LOZ "Micro Blocks" version of the Tokyo Skytree. There are several things I should say.
First off, I have been calling them Micro Blocks, mostly because that is how they are listed on Amazon. However, nowhere on the box is that written. I guess I should call them LOZ Blocks.
I liked the way the box opened. It opened like a book. This seems quite comfortable and more useful than the standard Nanoblock box. It isn't a big thing, but we usually appreciate the little things.
Someone is sending me the Nanoblock Tokyo Skytree, and when that happens, I will build it and do a side by side comparison. Until that day, you just have to make do with my impressions of the kit. Of course, if you want to see it, please click on the link to my YouTube video below. I unbox the Skytree and compare some of the blocks. I should probably do a more in depth comparison, but this should be useful in the meantime.
The kit has some uniquely shaped pieces that I am interested in. I hope there are extra ones so I can combine them with my stash of leftover Nanoblock pieces. Yes, they are compatible. That was one of the first things I checked. This will definitely be a plus for the creative people out there. I expect there are already some fantastic creations out there.
I haven't worked with the pieces yet, but they seem quite similar in style and quality to Nanoblocks. Once I put this together, I will have a better idea.
