I loved these as a kid and so I bought them for my 2 year old nephew for Christmas. He opened them up and my kids enjoyed playing with them so much they insisted on returning some of their toys in order to get these bristle blocks. They are an instant hit for old and young alike.
I LOVE these blocks, and so does my 18 month old and my 6.5 year old. I have been looking for a nice bristle block set because my toddler loves blocks and I knew he would have success with this style block. I remember having these as a kid but these are so much nicer! The set is huge,and comes with some really cool specialty pieces that offer a nice creative edge to it. They have 3 different "handle" pieces that rotate and can be used in so many ways, we are just beginning to scratch the surface of the potential of this toy. They also come with four wheels which is essential for building vehicles and machines of all kind. The color palette is so beautiful and modern, a nice change to the standard primary colors that you see in most toys. I have see other sets out there for about the same price and this is by far the nicest in my opinion.
This set is a really cool set! Read the desription! :
The set includes a stylised light blue car with two mismatched flick-fire missiles on the roof, as well as a trans-neon green flick-fire missile on the side of an extending platform for Dr. Rodney Rathebone. The extending seat is really cool and is a great feature! The car also has concealed hind wheels, 'jets' for speed, a radar dish attached to the roof. The car is deefintly unique and epic!
The Scientists Lab:
The Crazy Scientist's lab consists of a small jail, a rack of tools, a moving platform, and a tower with a laser. The jail cell is where the scientist put Monster Fighters who get in his way. It has a wall which can be pulled down using a chain that can be attached to a pin on the back of the car.
There is a spider web on the back of the lab. On its roof is a catapult for launching trans-neon green 1x1 rounds, perhaps intended as chemical-filled test tubes (not sure). The tool rack is a long rack filled with scientific materials such as a conical flask and a glow-in-the-dark skull in a beaker. IT also includes a glow in the dark rat and spider plus a normal green frog! The laser on the tower lights up, and is used by the scientist to to bring the Monster to life. The light is functioned by a turning technic wheel. The light up feature literally looks like a red laser is shooting on the monster which is a reallly great feature! On top of the lab is a green moonstone and a bunch of interesting, shocking details giveing it that mad scientist look.
The set includes 4 minifigures; The Crazy Scientist, his Monster, Dr. Rodney Rathebone and Major Quinton Steele. The crazy scientist looks awesome and frankenstein, huhuhhuh... the monster is a great collection to my minifgs! The docter's leg defintly got my attention. His lego is robot like and looks really good on him. Major Quinton Steele looks like the guy from the old lego series in 2004 (which I cant name because I forgot)
Anyhow this set is really cool and I am defintly going to buy a lot more lego Monster Fighters! Great set! 10/10
