The Riverside Raid set has 88 pieces, which include 2 minifigures of Adam Acid and Agent Max Burns, along with Max's 2-in-1 Quad Bike and Jet Speeder vehicle and 2 crates full of toxic compound.
The minifigures are beautiful, the transfers are lovely and incredibly detailed. There's a real story there immediately and plenty to set off imaginative play.
The vehicle is brilliant. A 2-in-1 quad bike and jet speeder vehicle with twin removable stud shooters and a winch.
The speed boat sits on the top of the quad bike, and lifts off really well. Although the speed boat fixes nicely, removal is clean and easy. Nothing comes apart at all, and you are left with 2 robust vehicles that withstand my 4 and 5 year olds playing with them no problem.
The Riverside Raid set is recommended for age 7-12, and you can see why because it uses some fiddly techniques to create a really quite complex (yet still small) vehicle, however my 5 1/2 year old can build it by himself.
Included in the set are 2 crates with toxic compounds inside. They are nicely done with removable lids and handles for the minifigures and the winch. The winch can also be used to tow the jet speeder.
The stud shooters are brilliant. We're used to the flick to fire missiles on vehicles, and while they work well, they get lost and misplaced and it limits play. We have hundreds of single stud bricks!
I'm incredibly impressed with this build, not least because it's really sturdy. The way the speed boat comes away is divine. The stud shooters might annoy some parents who find 'ammo' on the floor, but single stud bricks don't even hurt when you stand on them, so that's got to be a bonus!
LEGO have released a free interactive Ultra Agents story app. for Android and IOS where you take the part of the secret agent, creating your own ultra Agent avatar, searching for clues to solve crimes and complete missions and save Astor city from the super villains.
With every mission you complete you get nearer to discovering the evil puppet master behind the super villains, and you can unlock alternative building instructions for existing models that can be downloaded as a PDF and saved.
The LEGO Ultra Agents Riverside Raid set retails at £9.99 and is available from the LEGO shop online or in store. For less than £10 I think this set offers excellent play value, as do all of the Ultra Agents sets. I just have to save up now to buy the Ultra Agents Mission HQ 70164!
