I saw this at TRU today. I just can't resist all the new sets and in the end got the smallest set.
Name: Snake Canyon
Theme: World Racer
Item #: 8896
Back shows the teams' names
The minifigs are definitely the best part of this theme in my opinion.
Both minifigs have back printing and duo face. All the face printings are new which is great.
The gray helmet is the same as the new SP3 helmet, but with printing.
My pic doesn't show it very well, but the lime guy has a few scares on his face.
The DSS is big for a set this size. The not so great aspect of this theme.
Random instruction page shows the firing mechanism.
Inventory. The bikes and the metallic silver trophy are the only interesting parts
The complete set.
The only play feature. If you press down on the missile, the rubber piece under it gets compressed and once you release it, it shoots out. A cute mechanism.
Conclusion: A nice little set. An easy way to get two bikes and two very nice minifigs. I can see someone army build a bike gang with this set. (someone do it)
Even if you don't like this theme, this is still a good set to get. A few bikers in a city layout is interesting too.
