Mega Bloks and The Amazing Spider-Man have teamed up for some kid-friendly building toys that are now available at a retailer near you. For a mere $6.99, you can build either Spider-Man’s pocket racer or the evil Lizard Racer. These kid-friendly racers don’t come with an entire mini-figure like the larger sets do (such as the Spider-Man Speeder - review HERE), but instead they just include the bust and head of the character to drive the vehicle.
Putting one of these together is a cinch, with only 34 to 47 pieces (34 for Lizard Racer), this should only take a few minutes. Even the decal is already applied on the front, making it an ideal for the younger kids (ages 6+).
The size of one of these pocket racers is significantly smaller than the larger racers but these have the added advantage of the Marvel Key Launcher! Plug your Key into the rear of the completed racer, press the button and watch it go.
Again, this pocket racer is a lot less than your typical action figure these days but has the fun of building it yourself. The Lizard Racer isn’t movie accurate but it’s fun and that’s ultimately all that matters.
