LEGO Pharaoh’s Quest Scorpion Pyramid 7327 Review – If you have a LEGO fan in the house who loves the “Adventures” themes, then you simply must get the LEGO Pharaoh’s Quest Scorpion Pyramid 7327 set. It’s so much fun, provides endless play options, and has some cool features (e.g. a pop out coffin, Lego brick dumping trapdoor, and a lever that opens up a wall when pulled).
The idea behind the LEGO Pharaoh’s Quest Scorpion Pyramid set is pretty simple. Players need to help the heroes (Jack Raines, Mac McLoud, and professor Archibald Hale) navigate through booby trapped stairs, sliding doors, and the pharaoh’s tomb to find the Golden Nemes. All this should be done while avoiding obstacles and preventing the pharaoh’s minions from getting to the Golden Nemes first and awakening the pharaoh to unleash evil to the world. Everything needed to assemble the set and complete the quest is made possible with an array of features including:
- A giant scorpion and 7 mini figures: the 3 heroes/explorers, Pharaoh Amset-Ra, 2 Anubis guards, and 1 flying mummy.
- An array of accessories including swords, spears, guns, scarab shields, binoculars, snakes, scorpions, wrenches, golden coins, an armored ATV, and more.
- Blocks for building the pyramid, snake pit, stairs, and more.
Assembling everything and putting the mini-figures and other fixtures in place is made easy by the LEGO set’s packaging. The various pieces of the set are packaged in numbered bags, which correspond with the sections of a two-part instruction manual. This makes it easier for young kids to assemble the set without help from adults.
Is the LEGO Pharaoh’s Quest Scorpion Pyramid 7327 Worth Buying?
