PRODUCT: LEGO Alien Conquest Alien Mothership (http://alienconquest.lego.com)Lego Alien Conquest Alien Mothership

DESCRIPTION: A 416-piece LEGO construction set from the Alien Conquest range. Includes buildable UFO with spinning outer disc, abducting claw and special sound brick (3 x LR 41 batteries included), 2 x minifigures, alien clinger, stickers and instructions. Dimensions of UFO are approx. 19" (48cm) wide, 19" (48cm) long and over 4" (10cm) tall. Suitable for children aged 8 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The Alien Mothership from the LEGO Alien Conquest range is, quite simply, out of this world! It is another great collectible construction set from LEGO which lives up to their usual high quality standard, and will keep children (particularly boys) engrossed in endless alien invasions as the Alien Mothership tries to abduct an intrepid reporter from the city streets!

The construction set contains a huge number of parts and pieces which are sorted into several numbered bags. These bags relate to two accompanying instructions booklets which give step-by-step and easy to follow diagrams on assembling the flying saucer.

Lego Alien Conquest Alien MothershipThe LEGO UFO is great fun to build, and is mostly grey, black and green in colour, with a large railed outer ring connecting to a central alien 'cockpit' with hinged clear plastic dome. The 'saucer' is full of brilliant detail, including lasers, blue and green translucent 'lights', two large antennae and loads of sticker markings (which need to be attached during construction).

A sturdy handle on the back of the alien pod enables your child to 'fly' the UFO round the room, and the outer ring can be spun (smoothly) round 360 degrees, independently from the rest of the spaceship. As the ring rotates, an 'eerie' alien noise is activated thanks to a clever little battery powered sound brick that is inserted during the build. Another great feature of the UFO is its articulated 'abducting claw' which is great for reaching down and capturing civilians!

The two minifigures included with the playset (which also need assembling) are simply fantastic; one is a wonderfully weird looking alien commander, who sits inside the UFO cockpit and has great attention to detail, with uniform and red cloak, tentacled legs, exposed brain and hand laser gun; the other is the abductee - a female reporter with detailed torso (including pinstriped jacket, necklace, and identification badge), hairpiece, and double-sided head with alternating expressions, as well as fun clipboard and microphone accessories. The set also includes a great little alien clinger, a small green space creature which attacks civilians..and actually sits over the reporter's (or any other minifigure's) head!

We love this Alien Conquest LEGO set...it is well designed, generously sized, great fun to build, and scores highly on playability, providing endless alien invasion adventures!

BAD POINTS: The set is quite expensive, but does include lots of pieces. Only includes two minifigures. As with any such type of product, there are many tiny parts which are prone to being lost over time.

PRICE: Approx. £49.99
