    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
    accessories.

    Two Factions Racing for Glory
    Desert Destruction isn't just an ordinary LEGO set: it has its own narrative, and encourages players to invent their
    own stories. The plot pits two warring factions against each other in a fierce race for the finish. It is up to you, the
    builder, to decide who wins the race!

    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
    race.

    Fun Build Provides Challenge
    With 961 pieces, the Desert Destruction set provides a healthy challenge even for experienced builders. It took our
    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.

    What's in the Box
    961 LEGO pieces and an instruction booklet.

    Desert of Destruction Mini-Figures

    It's a race for glory between the elite X-Treme Daredevils and the rowdy Backyard Blasters!
