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
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 :
there is a little hole , you can compare it with an old suit to the right
then you build the "treasures"
they're quite cool ! but you can't steal it without making the big shark really angry !
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
then, the middle section:
then, the head :
and Finally, you assemble all the parts, wow, this guy is scary :
as you can see, an entire minifig can fit in it mouth.... HELPPP
the body of the shark have, sadly , 2 disgraceful holes, but they re obligatory for the flexibility of it :
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 )
then you build the submarine, it s a very very cool submarine, with it shooting thing at the front ( it shot really far )
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 !
and a view of the entire set :
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.
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 !
AH AH AH !!! good byyye !
