High Performance Athletes (Olympics) 5188 - 5202
« on: May 23, 2012, 01:38:47 »
I thought I would go ahead and review all the olympics sets together in one thread. The only ones I do not have yet are the tennis players, table tennis players, or the cyclist. But I will get those three on my next order and add the reviews then. So for now, here goes the first one:

5188 Beach Volleyball


Box front


box back


contents of the box (also came with a small catalog, but no instructions)


The ball is not a true volleyball, but rather a white basketball


front view of the two klickys


and a back view

5189 Gymnast With Rings



box front


box back


contents of the box. This is the only set I got that has instructions


rear view of the klicky


And our little guy on the rings.

Really love this set, particularly his white pants, very smart using the speedo design for this. I would guess they don't make as much profit on this set as some, since it is the same price as the others but with a lot more included.

5190 Gymnast on Balance Beam



front of the box


box back


contents of the box


A view of the completed balance beam


And the gymnast doing a flip on the beam.

I like how the beam has three different hand-holds for the klicky to do hand-stands. It might have been nice to have a foothold or two, like on the skateboards and surfboards, but then I suppose it might have looked strange. Overall a nice little set.

5191 Gymnast on Uneven Parallel Bars



box front


box back


Contents of the box


front view of the klicky's outfit


Not a lot to see in the back


A view of the klicky standing by the bars, showing that the low bar is way too low. She should need to jump up slightly to reach the low bar.


And the klicky in the middle of her performance.

5192 Gymnast on Pommel Horse



Front of the box


Back of the box


box contents... I had already assembled this before I took pics, and I couldn't get it apart. :-[


Fully assembled pommel horse, and a back view of the gymnast


And the klicky showing off his strength with my favorite move on the pommel horse!
