Today, I went to Toys'R'Us looking for summer 2010 sets. Luckily, they had some.
Set Number: 8897
Minfigures: 2 ~ Team Extreme Racer; Backyard Blaster Racer
Release: (US/Canada and some of Europe) May 2010
Price: $20 USD
Now onto the review!
For some reason, their is no "World Racers" set advertisements in the instruction booklet:
A new spear/grapple peice and trophy:
Minifigures and shark:
Trophy holder (the flag is a sticker... They could've just used the old printed flag peice):
A video on the mechanisms.
All photos and videos can be found here!
Playability: 5/10. Not much things to play with, you have a fish 'flinger, a shark, two boats, and a spear.
Details: 8.5/10. Nice sticker details.
Peices (not including minifigures): 4/10. Not much new peices; though you have the trophy, spear and shark peices.
Price: 9/10. 191 peices for $20 is good now-a-days
Minifigures: 7.5/10. Only two unique minifigures; they should've included a TW Crew Member.
Overall: 34/50 ~ Good ~ Not the best set of WR but a good one indeed.
Thanks for taking the time to read this review, until next time, bye!
