A couple of weeks ago a few MegaBloks sets were sent to the AwesomeToyBlog HQ for review. Earlier in the week I posted my thoughts of the Halo UNSC Night Ops Gausshog and tonight I’m back with the Hot Wheels Super Blitzen Monster Truck, which is completely unrelated to the famous reindeer. This set provides the directions and pieces for building three different vehicles, one featuring a pull-back motor, and includes one driver and several course obstacles.
The set, which includes 87 pieces includes directions for three different vehicles – each taking about 20 minutes to build. While having instructions and pieces for three vehicles really provides some value to this set, I am a bit disappointed by the “Monster Truck” which is essentially takes the first sports car and connects it to the monster truck chassis and tops it off with suspension and big wheels. Having a few more pieces to differentiate the sports car and the monster truck would have been nice. However, both sports cars are the highlight of this set – they’re solid builds and hold up well to play. Since these are construction toys, there’s an ample number of exposed studs on the cars there’s plenty of opportunity to customize your car with parts from other sets.
Also included with this set is a driver figure which features articulated shoulders, legs, wrists, ankles, neck and waist. The flames and skull deco on the figure are very well done and the driver does fit very well in all the assembled models.
The Mega Bloks Hot Wheels Super Blitzen Monster Truck is available now both online and in stores near you. Thanks to Mega Bloks for providing the set to AwesomeToyBlog for review!
