The instructions are basic instructions with what we typically see however there is no inventory or piece call outs.
Instructions Front: The front of the instructions gives a good shot of the Chill Speeder along with the Ice Orb.
Random Instruction Page: This page show some of the build of the Chill Speeder.
The Alpha Team minifigs are always great. Agent Flex has sunglasses, head set, and orange straps on his jumpsuit. One orange arm gives a nice way to tell your Alpha Team agents apart.
Included with this set are two important accessories, a pick ax and a red-decoder magnifying glass. You can use the red-decoder to see whether the ice orb is "active". The pick ax can be used to "deactivate" the Ice Orb.
The Ice Orb is very nice, and much better than the previous ones. The Ice Orbs "deactivate" when turned. The bug side is "active" and the empty side is not "active". The set includes is one Ice Orb.
The Chill Speeder holds the pick ax on one side and the red-decoder on the other side.
This is the front of the Chill Speeder. Notice all of the printed slopes!
The back of the Chill Speeder along with its rocket boosters.
Alpha Mode (transformed model):
Now the moment you have been waiting for...
It transforms into a walking robot.
The front of the walker. Notice the handle bars have folded up, and the rocket boosters have become lasers.
The side of the walker shows you how the legs fold down and the rocket boosters fold up.
At the back of the walker you will find the not currently in use skids.
Now one without the minifig:
Final Rating, Final Picture, and Thoughts:
Playability: 5/5 (There is so much you can do with this set. Deactivate Ice Orbs, Inflate Alpha Mode, and much more)
Design: 4/5 (A bit lacking in slopes and a bit rough, but great creativity)
Pieces: 5/5 (Great sand blue and dark blue combination along with a bit of orange, black and white)
Price: 4/5 (It needs a tad more pieces)
Aerodynamic: 4/5 (A few bulky pieces and a bit tall)
It was a good buy with a fair amount of printed bricks along with sand blue and dark blue pieces. The Ice Orb looks great, and the overall model is very playable.
Thanks for reading!
