What It Is
The Skylanders Swap Force: Flynn's Rescue Ship from MEGA Bloks is a 546-piece set that builds a large version of Flynn's flying ship from the Skylanders video games. The set also includes a buildable smaller vehicle and three Skylanders figures of Flynn, Hot Head and Magna Charge.
Is It Fun?
The Rescue Ship is filled with fun features like a working crane and projectile, spotlight, hatch and sail. The projectile is fired by lifting the stairs and pressing the hidden button under the ship's wheel house. The whole ship opens up to reveal the below deck rooms where even more items are found. The rear room contains the ship's engine, and the front section has a folding table, a book and tool rack with removable tools.
The figures also have some cool features. Flynn is poseable, Hot Head has a lite-up head and Magna Charge has a swappable top and bottom that can be swapped with other MEGA Bloks Swap Force figures. Even the smaller vehicle has some neat details, including a working propeller, retractable wings and a sail.
Who It’s For
This set is for Skylanders fans, ages 5 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The directions are good and it should take about three hours to build completely. Kids around the ages of 5 and 6 might need some grown-up help to put it together.
