What It Is
The ingenious 644-piece LEGO The Lone Ranger Silver Mine Shootout is based on the movie The Lone Ranger. Kids can fling a boulder from the top of the mine or drop it onto a sneaking villain on the floor below. Villains or heroes can ride to the top of the mine in the bucket, blasting their way out. The longhorn skeleton doubles as a flick missile to stop an attack. Heroes and villains can escape into a waiting mine car by sliding down the chute, or kids can put up the flaps to stop them in their tracks. Fling the dynamite at a bad guy or pretend to blow the mine wide open. The set comes with five minifigures: a dusty Lone Ranger, Tonto, Chief Big Bear, Butch Cavendish, and the bandit Skinny Kyle.
