Lego 79100 Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Kraang Lab Escape

Spud is becoming quite a huge Lego fan, as most of you are aware, his 7th Birthday has just recently passed, he received lots of Lego for his Birthday and spent any money he had received all on various Lego sets, I feel my boy is now becoming too old for Mickey Mouse, and as his Disney's teddies get pushed aside, let me introduce you to his newest love, Lego.

We picked up an orb at my Mum's old cottage! How scary!
The lovely team at Lego, and believe me they are lovely sent Spud this set about a month ago, it may of been  even longer then that if I'm honest, the reason why it's took me so long to get the review up is because Lego have very kindly offered one of my lucky readers/visitors a chance to win a huge Lego Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle set! You can find out more about the competition at the end of this post, so I thought if I waited til April I'd let the competition begin!

When I was a child, me and my siblings loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (shortened to TMNT), we was regular viewers of the show. The show contained 4 turtles (below) who battle with evil enemies, their destiny is to fight Shredder (the foot soldiers leader), the turtles are friendly and nice helping other's along their way.

Michelangelo - The orange turtle - The wild one!
Raphael - The red turtle - The muscle one!
Donatello - The purple turtle - The brainy one!
Leonardo - The blue turtle, also the leader of the pack!

The set contains around 90 pieces, and comes with 2 figures, Michelangelo, (the orange turtle), and a foot soldier (that's what they are called, the black mini figure) and 1 character Kraang, the pinky/purple octopus!

Spud has just started watching the Nickelodeon show and it has quickly become one of his new favourite program's, he can often be found standing in front of the tv mimicking some of the ninja turtles moves!

Lego say's: Give the villains the slip with a hot slice of turtle power! The Kraang has Michelangelo locked tight in a laser-shield prison inside his lab. Use Michelangelo's leftover pizza to turn a sticky situation into a slick escape! Slide the pizza through the prison bars to make the Foot Soldier slip and fall! Then activate the explosion function on Michelangelo's cage to escape! Once he's free, battle The Kraang in his awesome mech walker with dual laser flick missiles. Be ready for a wild ride through the city sewers when The Kraang detaches the mech walker's legs to create a flying escape pod! Don't let him get away!

Spud's defeated the foot soldier, now its his turn to defeat the evil Kraang!

Overall we found the set very easy to set up, the little green bars did however annoy Spud every time one knocked down, but otherwise it's a great little Lego set with 2 collectible mini figures one being a turtle. The set took between 5-10 minutes to build, we are getting better you see ;)
