LEGO Vehicles Provide High-Speed, Creative Fun
As part of the World Racers series, Desert Destruction features some of the largest and most interactive LEGO vehicles
ever designed. The X-Treme Daredevil truck, at over 20 inches in length, is the centerpiece of the set. It features
dozens of moving parts, including a cargo bay that opens up. Inside, you'll find a new motor, nitro, oil, spare tires, a
crane, and other parts and accessories. The smaller racing vehicles are also highly-detailed and interactive. Our
11-year old tester especially appreciated the buggy's mounted guns, which shoot off four flick-fire missiles. It might
seem like the Backyard Blasters are outgunned, but their vehicle also features a working cannon. Each of the vehicles
comes with its own set of stickers, allowing you to decorate and customize them however you like.
In addition to the vehicles, the set also includes a winner's platform, a trophy, a checkered flag, and many other

The set comes with eight minifigures, making it ideal for imaginative roleplaying. Young builders can take control of
the X-treme Daredevils, an elite squad of racers with their own team of mechanics. Or, they can roleplay as the vicious
Backyard Blasters, who aren't afraid to play dirty. A referee minifigure has also been included to help oversee the

tester (an accomplished LEGO builder) about three and a half hours to fully assemble. The set comes with a colorful,
step-by-step instruction manual to assist you in building. Or, if you're not interested in building the pre-designed
vehicles, you can use the many hinges, blocks, and sticks to build your own, unique creation.
