The Ionix, How to Train Your Dragon 2: Deadly Nadder Dragon from Spin Master is a 121-piece set that builds Astrid's Deadly Nadder dragon from the movie, How to Train Your Dragon 2. The set also builds a weapon accessory and two mini-figures of a Viking Henchman and an exclusive Astrid. The completed dragon has multiple points of articulation including its legs, wings, and head. The mini-figures come with weapons and also have some articulation.
This set allows kids to bring the characters from the movie to life and recreate scenes from the movie or come up with new dragon adventures.
The set is intended for kids, ages 8-14, but we think kids as young as 6 will want to play with the completed set. Kids under the age of 8 might need some help building the set.
Ionix sets revolve around shape-shifting bricks, and solid bricks are shifted to form the base of the dragon and figures.
For the most part, the directions are excellent and it took us 20 minutes to build this set. The box makes it look like the weapon accessory can fire the projectile, however, the directions have you build the pieces locked together and there is no mention of how or if it can be fired.
