The lovely people at Disney sent us a Ravager Attack set of the Marvel Superheroes, Guardians of the Galaxy (Volume 2), and we set 11-year old D the task of building it. With a freshly-broken arm after his latest battle with his bike, I wasn't sure he would be able to take on this challenge... but I was wrong!
D loves LEGO. So do I. So I admit I was a little disappointed that he didn't ask me for help. But he really enjoyed building the Taserface's M ship, and it was great to see him overcome his own physical challenge to complete the build alone.
This Ravager Attack set (76079) is designed for 6-12 year olds, and D found that age bracket was right. The instructions were really clear, and he took no time to build the M ship, the tree, six-stud shooter and characters (Taserface, Mantis and Rocket are included).
It wasn't until the build was over that I found out that the six-stud shooter fires up to six shots, and the M ship is equipped with stud shooters. Yes, I became the target. Thankfully the set comes with quite a few spare studs to help replace any temporarily lost in battle.
The set comes with a short comic featuring the items in the set. As D is a big comic fan, this was a nice little extra.
