What It Is
LEGO expands its Ninjago line with a new playset called the Fangpyre Truck Ambush. This 452-piece set lets kids build a six-inch snowmobile and 17-inch Fangpyre Truck. Both vehicles have real-rolling wheels. The Fangpyre Truck features a snake face in the front with a jaw that really opens to reveal a movable tongue. The truck also has a tail in the back that moves in a realistic snake-like fashion. The truck's cockpit opens and holds one minifigure. There are also side compartments on the truck for storing weapons. The playset comes with four minifigures: Zane ZX, Jay ZX, Fangdam, and Fangtom. Also included are assorted weapons, such as a ninja sword and a golden Fangpyre staff.
Why It’s Fun
As with all of LEGO's Ninjago sets, the Fangpyre Truck Ambush has a fantastic design with lots of great detail. This playset will inspire a lot of imaginative, narrative-based play as kids pretend they are helping Zane and Jay escape from the evil Fangdam and Fangtom as they continue the Ninjago story.
Who It’s For
The Fangpyre Truck Ambush is for ages 8—14.
What To Be Aware Of
Because there are so many pieces in this set, it may take some time to put together. (It took us about an hour and a half.) The directions are clear and easy to follow. There are two building assembly booklets that walk builders through the entire process.
