When you remove the cardboard backing you find this. The helmet is attached via two strings. One at the top and one at the bottom. The one at the top can be a little tricky, so kids, get your parents to cut/remove that one for you.
So I mentioned making a redesign of the tower. This is what the tower looks like when taken off the baseplate. As you can see many of the parts are free floating from each other. This won’t work as well if you’re trying to make a diorama and have to watch out for loose piece.
Here is my solution. I took the two 2×2 grey plates that were in the middle, along with those two 2×1 plates I mentioned earlier to make the base of the redesigned tower. Added the side curved pieces…
Then simply put the top portion of the tower on it. Now this does leave you with the three bottom ramps that are free floating. Still, that’s much better than the whole base of the tower being free floating pieces. The last pic above shows how I temporarily store those ramp pieces when the tower is not in use.
Here’s the video review:
Summary: This is a quick to build set and is remarkable in it’s detail for being so small.
Overall Rating: I give this set 10 out for 10 medals.
