Final Thoughts

For this review we were sent the Newbury Subway which contains 3 minifigures: Jack, Parker and Pete Peterson minifigures.

When built, the LEGO Hidden Side Newbury subway toy measures over 5″ (15cm) high, 10″ (26cm) wide and 5″ (14cm) deep.

These new sets from LEGO are great. Not only do you have the fun of building and playing with the LEGO (which by itself is always great fun), but you also get the fun that comes with the mixed reality app for iOS and Android. Simply download it, build the LEGO set and hold up your phone or tablet and play!

Using the app is very simple and really adds to playtime with the set, I look forward to seeing what LEGO do next!
