- January 9th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0LEGO's Maneki-NekoI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfIf you're familiar with Japanese culture, you may be aware of the maneki-neko or beckoning cat. More often referred to as the lucky cat, this statue has one (and sometimes both) paw raised in what appears to us Westerners as a wave, but is actually a beckoning gesture. Lego's version is white in color (signifying happiness, purity, and good things to come — like more Lego sets? :p) with its left paw raised (good for business as it attracts customers ; works for Lego, right? ;p) and wearing a collar. bib, and a "bell" in the style of Edo period wealthy. In its non-beckoning paw, the cat holds a gold-colored tile styled after an Edoi-era coin known as a koban. Designers even managed to replicate the cat's yellow eyes without using a new piece. This Lucky Cat is a solid build and looks good. It also has a bit of functionality built into it, more than the usual BrickHeadz. A lever in the back allows one to move the beckoning paw up and down. On the downside, the paws aren't especially prominent, but that's nothing new with Brickheadz. Since I'm displaying it at home rather than a business, I mirrored the instructions so that its right paw is up, beckoning for money. Overall, I'd say it's well worth the purchase.Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 10 minsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Lucky Cat
