I found two of these today in my local TRU - £29.99. Been a while since I did a review, but without further ado...
The contents - three bags, a hosepipe thingy, a sticker sheet and two instruction books.
Book 1 deals with the 4x4 car:
Yum, new pieces - 1x3 tiles:
Ta-daaa! About 5 minutes work this bit:
And onto book 2, bag 2 - look at these new pieces:
And so we start to build the helicopter itself:
We have a MAJOR colour-matching issue here:
Yes, I apply stickers. So sue me:
And onto the third bag. Now this just looks like a bomb from this angle:
Building the engine for the chopper:
The underside does at least have some thought given to it with that spotlight:
Rotor blades are nicely offset from centre:
Here's that red thing again:
Just a big bucket really:
For sale - lots of 1x1 trans-blue cylinders:
It hooks onto the rear:
And here is the finished chopper:
The fine crew:
The whole set:
I do like helicopters, and this is a nice one, but the huge pieces make it far too light to make me think it's LEGO - does that make sense? It's not as swooshable as it could be because it's not got enough weight to it. I'll give it 3.5 out of 5 though. And the Jeep is lovely.
