This review is for the Creator 5866 Rotor Rescue, a 3-in-1 set from LEGO that also includes instructions for building a speedboat and a biplane. It was purchased from a Toys R Us on November 20th, 2009 for $12.99 (I mistakenly said $10.99 earlier), but that may not be the final pricing. I’ve not gotten around to the other two alternative models, but will this weekend. There is not a lot to say – it’s a Creator set, and it’s got a lot of flexibility and a lot of really useful parts, especially if you like red and yellow 🙂
This is one of those sets where the pictures speak for themselves.
