REVIEW: 7569 Desert Attack
Posted 29 March 2010 - 05:46 AM
It has been a while since I reviewed a set, so forgive me if my review isn't quite up to par. (Also, sorry in advance for the
poor lighting on the pictures )
Review 1: Desert Attack
Set Number: 7569
Set Line: Prince of Persia The Sands of Time
Minifigs: 3 (plus one skeleton)
Animals: 1 horse
Cost: $10.99 US
Release Date: April 2010
Inside we find two bags, a horse, a dark tan bush, and the instruction sheet.
The minifigs are definitly the reason to get this set. They are incredibly detailed and a must have for PoP collectors. This set in particular showcases the new weapons and accessories featured in the Prince of Persia line.
Front without head wrap
Front without head wrap
Back (featuring double sided head expression)
Another reason this set is a must have is the beautiful horse. It is heavily printed with sand blue and gold.
Saddle Alone (Yes, it is sand blue. Unfortunately the lighting makes it look dark bley... )
Not much to see here folks...
Pieces of interest
Of course the exclusive dark tan bush, as well as some dark tan plates and slopes. The spear is Dark Brown, and the vegitation is dark bley.
The ONLY play feature
Isn't that nice? Some hidden jewels for the kiddies. But what do you expect in a set this size?
Hurray! An extra attachable claw!
For what it's worth, it's a good little set. Great minifigs and some nice rare pieces. Again, there isn't much more to be expected from a set this size.
Minifigs 10/10 By now everyone should know how outstanding the minfigs are in the Prince of Persia line, and this set is no exception. The set includes great new weapons and accessories and amazing front and back printings on the figs.
Build 5/10 There isn't a whole lot you can do with 57 pieces, but the rare parts and minifigs make up for it.
Pieces 9/10 For a set this size, it has an great selection of rare, useful pieces.
Price 8/10 I'm not one to whine about price, but 57 pieces for 10.99 isn't too fair. However, you do get a lot of rare pieces
Playability 7/10 Dastan can be ambushed by the Hassassins and find the secret treasure. That's about it.
Overall 39/50 Not too bad at all. I would definitly recommend this set for PoP fans.
Don't forget to comment!
Also, look for my review of Fight for the Dagger coming soon.

I for one, don't particularly care for this set. It's like a battle pack, except that it only has three minifigs. The rare parts and minifigs are interesting, but I don't find them quite worth the price.
Also, I have a Fight for the Dagger coming in the mail, so I either look forward to seeing yours, or to getting mine out first.
Awesome insight into the set, thanks again!

While I would gladly have taken another enemy minifig, the skeleton's great too as I don't have the original old-armed skeleton.

I felt my old sig was too big, so it's gone.
I'll miss it.

This is probably the set I'm the least interested in of the PoP line,but it's still a must buy because of the horse and the dark tan bush. The figures are also nice, I like that the torsos are fairly generic and can be used for other types of figs too, like soldiers or civilians. I also love the new turban, it looks really nice The return of the old skeleton is also good, I'm not to fond of the one with droid arms.
To bad the set doesn't include any pieces with the new colour, I think they should use it more since they have spend so much money in making a new colour.
I give the set a 3 out of 5, a good and nice set that has it's pros and cons but I like it. The price is the main reason for not giving it a 4, here in Sweden these battle pack-sized sets costs over $20 and that is really bad for only 57 pieces. I'll probably end up with 1 or 2 anyway but I might also use BrickLink to save money.

This is the one PoP set I know I'll be getting. The hoods will work nicely for the two Death Eaters I'm going to make, Dastan's hair piece will work great for another minifigure I'm planning, and the flesh-toned pieces will work nicely for some other custom Harry Potter themed minifigures. Not sure what I'll do witht he horse, but I'm sure I'll find something.

I didn't realize how close I was to not being the first person to review this set.
Once again I apologize for the poor lighting on the photos. My next review should have better quality photos.
Unfortunatley for you I think I'm going to beat you to it. My review should be up tonight.
