I review Pod 1 from the Bradford Rant Institute of Cosmic Kinesis. :)
About this creation
So I got my LEGO Pod from the Bradford Rant Institute yesterday, and I decided to review it for you guys. ^_^
The case is awesome. I can't say I've seen a LEGO case cooler than that. :) Very secure, I might add.
It has molded spaces for the pod, stand, and minifig. BTW, it didn't arrive like this. The case was wrapped in bubble wrap and in a box, and the pod itself was also wrapped in it. As you can see, it also came with a little card stating when the pod was found and such.
Here it is. :) Very pod-like. :P I think the color scheme works fairly well here. The orange had the risk of messing up the colors, but I think it turned out well.
Shiny bullhorn piece. Some people call it a "loudhailer." :P Shiny...
Everyone and everything seems to need an ID these days. Yes, this pod has a driver's license! :)
*Gasp* It's open! I wonder what's inside?
Aw, it's a cute little space minifig with his personal toaster oven. :)
I really like the minifig. the torso piece is really cool. :) It appears that Fred wants some fresh air. That helmet probably won't help him much with that.
That's better. Hi Fred! He's contemplating a way to salvage his toaster oven.
The stand is pretty cool. Awesome 4 x 2 sloping pieces. :)
Here's the letter I got from the B.R.I.C.K.
The guys at the B.R.I.C.K. signed it, too. I wonder if those are their real names...
I also got two shirts, one large and one medium.
Alas, I really shouldn't and so won't be taking it apart. I'll keep it safe, and then sell it in a few decades. ;)

Where did this take place? I thought at the LEGO Store, you searched around the Store for the Pod. Is this how you won it?
The landing of Pods 2-7 took place at LEGO stores, yes. Pod 1 was different though, I won it on the B.R.I.C.K. site by being the first to correctly unscramble the tagline for LEGO Universe, "Answer the Call, Save Imagination."
Sorry man, I'm keeping it around for a while. Also, it states on the B.R.I.C.K. Site that I'm not allowed to sell it until I've had it for a year, which would be in late January. =P
Thanks for the comment! :)
