The new batch of LEGO VIDIYO sets are undeniably eye-catching and colourful, but
In fact, when displayed side by side with many of the other new LEGO VIDIYO sets, this actually looks slightly out of place given its lack of bright neon tiles covering the surfaces of the model.

And if you’re just dipping your toes into VIDIYO’s larger builds, this is a comparatively cheap way to do so.
