hello everyone, here is my first review ! I bought this set because I wanted the shark and it was really not expensive It looked great on the box, so I bought it.

I'm sorry for the bad pics, but I had no times to photography it correctly

let's start!

here is the box, with my Sigfig next to it to makes you an idea of the size ^^

the back, where you can see the shark and the submarine functionalities :

let's open the box !

6 bags, a loonng dark-grey piece, and the manual, the bags are not numbered, and I prefer it like this ( and my sigifig with his new swim-suit ^^ )

random view of the manual :

let's start to build, as usual, by the figs :

I love their heads, they're not "Only modern" or futuristic heads, like some in space sets, with microphone and stuffs, they can be used for anythings, their torso are printed front/back, nicely printed.

one thing I didn't like, their helmets are not "waterproof" , see on this pic :

p7171655_2f41e0.jpg

there is a little hole , you can compare it with an old suit to the right

then you build the "treasures"

p7191673_2eea6e.jpg

they're quite cool ! but you can't steal it without making the big shark really angry !

p7191676_22ae97.jpg

happily, after the treasures, you build the big gun, so you can deal with the shark :

well... or with my sig-fig, to steal his treasures, the gun is pretty cool .

once you finished to build it , you start to build the shark !

first, you build it tails

p7191680_27a0b7.jpg

then, the middle section:

then, the head :

and Finally, you assemble all the parts, wow, this guy is scary :

p7191677_204ee3.jpg

as you can see, an entire minifig can fit in it mouth.... HELPPP

p7191679_21a268.jpg

the body of the shark have, sadly , 2 disgraceful holes, but they re obligatory for the flexibility of it :

p7191687_2024ff.jpgp7191688_2923c1.jpg

these holes allow it to take some cool poses, even if the tail can't stay in place without your hand holding it( it flex with rubber parts )

p7191692_2be150.jpg

then you build the submarine, it s a very very cool submarine, with it shooting thing at the front ( it shot really far )

p7191661_2f09de.jpg

p7191665_211a06.jpg

the cockpit is pretty cool, sorry but the pictures I took of it was really fuzzy ...

(other views of the submarine on the gallery )

a little view of the extra parts I got ? I think I'm pretty lucky... I had a lot of extra parts !

p7191660_2518e8.jpg

and a view of the entire set :

p7191695_20e591.jpg

Notes :

Build: 9/10, that was really interesting to build, the shark is really cool to build

Design: 9/10, the submarine is really cool, the shark is awesome even if the 2 holes are a little ugly

Playbillity: 10/10, a great set to play with, the "flexibility" of the shark and the nice shooting system of the submarine + the accessories and the treasure allow a looot of scenarios

Minifigs: 9/10, I don't really like the hole in their helmets, but they re really nice and their heads are cool, also, their back is printed !

Price: 10/10, a really low price for a set like this, but it surely was cheaper because of Christmas.

Score: 9/10

Conclusion : I really loved this set, fun to build, lot of cool parts and well designed ( I love this shark ) ... well , I love this shark so much that my sigfig stole it !

I own the two smallest Aquaraiders set, and hope I can find a good bargain for this one (I think you bought it on sale; RRP is 30 euros); I also dream of buying 7776 the shipwreck, but that's just a dream.

Back to the Tiger shark attack: bot the shark and the submarine look very cool, so does the little "spear machinegun".I think it would have been hard to have a moving shark without those holes. It would have been better with another minifig and/or a larger trasure.

Can't say it's perfect, so I rated it 4/5.
