Lego Superheroes Superman Battle of Smallville Review
Any child who likes both Superman and Lego is sure to enjoy playing with a set like this. If he or she likes Lego but not specially Superman, or likes Superman but doesn’t have many Lego sets yet, then this could still be a good choice for them.
Children are aided in bringing this Superman adventure to life with a step-by-step picture instruction sheet. This Lego 76003 set is recommended for the 6-12 age range and it’s not too difficult to build, although a 6 year old may need help following the instructions.
But the really great thing with these Lego sets is that after they’ve built it, they have toys that they can play with for many hours of imaginative play.
The back story to the Lego Superheroes Superman Battle of Smallville is that Superman needs to stop the evil Kryptonians from capturing the town of Smallville. There are three villainous minifigures – General Zod, Faora, and Tor-An. They have the Black Zero Dropship and all its weapons at their disposal. On the side of the superheroes there’s only Superman himself and Colonel Hardy to use the army-style jeep to save Smallville from destruction by the Kryptonians.
Lego has an excellent reputation for producing quality set after quality set, and the Lego Superman Battle of Smallville set number 76003 is no exception.
This is a great new building set from Lego. It’s good value for money considering the hours of play that it can offer. If you think your child would like it, there’s no reason to hold back.
