Mega Bloks Skylanders Swap Force™ Boss Tank Showdown Giveaway


One of the things my boys are hoping to get for Christmas this year is Skylanders Swap Force. They also LOVE building bricks, so when I was asked if I’d like to do a review and giveaway of Mega Bloks Skylanders Swap Force™ Boss Tank Showdown I jumped on it! All opinions are my own. They literally ARE all my own, because the boys don’t even know we have this yet. Prizing and samples are courtesy of Mega Bloks. With permission, I put the toy together myself and am not letting the boys see it til Christmas.


It took me about an hour to put together the Mega Bloks Skylanders Swap Force™ Boss Tank Showdown by myself. I bet my 8 year old would have been faster at it. (Of course he wouldn’t have been mulit-tasking with the laptop and watching Hart of Dixie at the same time.) The directions were simple to follow and easy to read. I HATE knock off kits that you can’t tell what brick goes where. All of the bricks snapped together nicely, too. Unfortunately I was missing one tiny piece that looks like a wrench and holds on the cannon. I’m not sure if it somehow went flying when I opened one of the bags or if it just wasn’t in there. I searched the family room and didn’t see it, but it’s color is pretty darn close to my carpet color and it was late at night.

Swappable Characters

One of the really cool things about the Mega Bloks Skylanders Swap Force™ series is that you can swap the main characters body parts just like the video game! I need to pick up one more set for Christmas so the boys can swap their characters from their sets. I’m giving Little Man this set since it’s already put together and Buddy’s favorite part about building bricks is the building part. I would have taken the fun right out of it for him!
