12/2/12: Mega Bloks World of Warcraft Arthas and Sindragosa and Skylanders Giants Crusher's Pirate Quest

Next up in my Holiday Gift Guide is Mega Bloks World of Warcraft Arthas and Sindragosa and Skylanders Giants Crusher's Pirate Quest.  Two really cool fun sets to build and play with.
We were at my in-laws so we decided to have the kids put them together as a group.  They decided to divide and conquer and split in to two groups of two with a line down the middle of the two sets.  I will start with the World of Warcraft Arthas and Sindragosa because I thought it looked really cool.  How cool does this guy look?
This started with Lauren and her cousin putting it together but they all ended up working on it a bit.  The kids worked really well together trying to build them.
Lauren checking out how it is done.
 Here he is almost finished.  Luckily my nephew Matthew stepped in as the younger ones were having some problems.  It is rated for 8 and up but the pieces locked together easily.  He said he really liked it.
 Here are both pieces.
Evan was having fun playing with him and flying him around.
More about the set:

Next is Skylanders Giants Crusher’s Pirate Quest which is a 2- in-1 play set which has 314 pieces.  This is just the ship part. 
 Evan and his cousin worked on this set.
 They did a good job breaking it in to smaller parts each of them could work on.
 Here is Evan working on one of the pieces.
 The sail goes up and down which is cool.  Evan was having fun playing with it.  
 You can also combine it with other Mega Bloks Skylanders Giants sets to build your adventure!  For example you could combine it with the Arkeyan Copter set I told you about earlier.
