What It Is
Spider-Man gets a mini makeover as part of Hasbro's Marvel Ultimate Spider-Man Fighter Pods line. The Spider Cycle Launcher Pack includes eight collectible, squishy, micro character figures, including special-edition figures of Spider-Man and Nick Fury; three pods; and a Spider Cycle Launcher. Kids can place a figure inside of a pod, then load it into the Spider Cycle Launcher and launch it into battle. Kids can also spin or roll the pods by hand. Link the pods together or attach the figures to the outside and create all-new ways to play.
Why It’s Fun
There are really no rules on how to play, so kids can use their imaginations to make up all kinds of stories and games with the Fighter Pods and figures. The Spider Cycle Launcher Pack puts kids in charge of the play experience and that encourages interaction and creativity. Kids will like the collectability and competition with a great superhero theme.
Who It’s For
The Spider Cycle Launcher Pack is for Spider-Man fans ages 4 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
We didn't have any instructions that showed us how to launch the pods from the cycle. While it's pretty intuitive, it does take a lot of force to press down on the launch button, and there are actually two buttons that you have to press at the same time: a large red button on the cycle seat and a smaller grey button on the underside of the bike.
Also, the pods only fit into the cycle one way, but it's easy to figure out.
Additional Marvel Ultimate Spider-Man Fighter Pods figures are available and sold separately.
