A Review of Prince of Persia: The Ostrich Race
My son's review:
I got this set while I was at the LEGO store for the monthly mini build project. All of the Prince of Persia sets were on display at the store. I could tell they weren't glued on because I saw two minifigs in one model were knocked down.
It includes two ostriches, a snake, an exclusive scorpion, Sheik Amar, Dastan, an Ostrich Rider, two plants, a winner's stand, an opening cage, and an arsenal.
Pros: The gates open, the ostrich's heads can move, it has lots of exclusive pieces, and lots of minifig characters.
Cons: The gates fall apart when you open them, and they don't open all the way. Dastan's swords keep falling off his sword-holder, but I fixed the problem by putting the handles at the top.
Cost: 5 out of 5 stars (because for 169 pieces, $19.99 is a low price)
Building experience: 4 out of 5 stars (because I had to rebuild the gates)
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars (overall when I raced the ostriches with my sister, it was really fun!)
