Let's start off with a few quick shots of the box & instructions:
Inside of the box:
We got some ideas for alternative models on the backside (the same ones are also on the backside of the instructions):
Here's an overall view of this huge set:
We get 4 minifigs, each with different heads and color patterns, which i really like:
...and also a good amount of equipment for them:
Let's move on with the cool vehicles, there are 3 (!) completely different ones in this set, first is the neat little trike:
Next, the not less neat "4-wheeled off-road-thing" (don't know what's it called really ):
And finally the huge Monster truck, i love the chrome sidepipes and the wench with the hook in the back, which adds a lot of playability:
Oh, i almost forgot our brave adventurers also have got a raft to ride the wild mountain waters:
Now let's focus on the many details of the mountain base. We got a bridge over troubled waters, but be aware, it's very unstable! Love the wood patterns on the yellow 1x6 tiles:
On a corner a camera is mounted to document the wild life:
For the evenings we also got a little campfire:
Down by the river sits a grey falcon and watches the guys on their challenges:
What's that? Seems not very safe, to be honest..be aware when you pass by these rocks....
....cause it will collapse!
Let's move up again where the tent is placed, inside is plenty of space to take a rest for the figs and to store their equipment:
But i think they should have built the tent on another place cause the ground isn't very good there:
When you pull the mechanism, a trap door opens:
Will the guys all come back home safe and not injured? You decide! All in all this is a really great set, ome may say it is a bit juniorized because of the baseplate, but it really isn't. It's got a LOT of playability and some rare parts, the biggest beeing the baseplate which is only available in this set. I hope you liked my review, let me know your opinions!
