Today I'm reviewing the T-Rawket Sky Strike, which is recommended for age 6+ and has 286 pieces. I was probably a bit harsh when I reviewed the Karai Bike Escape (set 79118), but I feel this set offers much better value for money.
The set contains the T-Rawket, the Kraang Ship and 4 excellent minifigures - Donatello, Michelangelo, Mutated Dr. O’Neil and The Kraang with their weapons and accessories.
The T-Rawket is bag 1 and book 1, and the Kraang Ship is bag 2 and book 2. Really simple and easy for a younger builder, but the build itself is on the whole a bit tricky.
The T-Rawket is nice and simple with a large piece chassis, and is a really fun and rewarding build, my 5 1/2 year old really enjoyed it.
The Kraang Ship is really a fairly complicated structure, and my son did have some frustration connecting the four silver pieces to form the circular shape. As this was the only bit he couldn't do, I feel the age range is right. It should be a challenge, and it should be interesting, my son has learnt a new building technique with this set.
There's loads going on with this set. The the Kraang Ship has an opening hatch, drops 'barrels of goo' from a trapdoor at the bottom and has 2 flick fire missiles.
The T-Rawket has an ejector seat, so that you can attach the backpack glider to your turtle and shoot them off to battle. There are also 2 flick fire missiles and a pizza shooting oven at the back.
My boys generally play with a new set for about an hour before they start dismantling it to modifiy it so that it's got a space for Batman, 6 extra wheels and a cannon. This set is still intact and complete and they've played with it a lot. The play value is excellent and it really does give children a whole scene to recreate the stories from the DVD/show and to use their own imagination.
The T-Rawket Sky Strike has an RRP of £29.99 and is available at the LEGO Shop online or in person, and at all good toy shops.
I was sent my T-Rawket set as part of my role as a LEGO Family Blogger.
