Pros:Scarab shields, two mummy figures, golden staff.
Cons:The motorcycle was completely useless for me.
The Bottom Line: Not a bad ten dollar set but if all you want are the mummy figures, go with the Battle Pack instead.
Pharaoh's Quest is often compared to the Lego Adventures series; while there were some amazing jaw dropping sets in the Egyptian portion of it there were no hard core mummy mini figures outside of a couple of basic characters. The mummy mini figures created for this series are highly detailed and their weapons are just as impressive; the ones that you get with this set have the scimitar and the scarab shields. Not only do they completely compliment the figures but they are a great thing to have for adding to larger scenes. This set sold for about ten dollars; not a bad price but if all you want are the mummy figures you are better off getting the Pharaoh's Quest Battle Pack.
One of the perks of getting the set is the golden staff; like the weapons that you get, this has a lot of uses. The stand that you build is not that impressive; it is small and the pieces are better used for other things or to be added to other sets. If you have the Scorpion Pyramid you can easily add the stand / altar to it without changing anything outside of a larger plate to attach it or building it free form then attaching it to the scene.
The only thing about the set that I didn't like was the motorcycle; I have no use for it and even though it is something that is used in the comic and animated stories its not something that I want / need. There's a minimal amount of assembly to the set; the motorcycle takes the longest and while I have no use for it I do have to admit that it is a huge improvement over what was packaged in the older sets. It makes use of both Lego and Technic pieces so it has a less-blocky look to it. You are getting some nice accessory pieces with the motorcycle and you can change the look of it to adapt it for use with other themes if you want.
This is a add on set; you can have a little bit of fun with it but to really get the most from it you are going to need to mix it in with other sets. This is still being produced by Lego so if you see it selling for more than ten dollars, skip it and shop around. It was part of the 2011 collection for the theme so chances are larger toy stores are still going to have it in stock.
Without a doubt, the mummy figures are the most impressive pieces in the set. While they are a little on the generic side compared to the other mummy figures they are still amazing. There are no visual differences to them but that's fine; there are ways that you can customize them to look a little different if you want to have some variety. There is a wrapped bandage design on the torso and a drape over the top of the legs. One of the things that makes this so sweet, the red eyes. The head peg is bandage wrapped but you can see the eyes and the mouth; this is a dual sided face peg so you are getting two different looks. Both sides are great but it realy depends on how creepy you want them to look. In addition to the two mummy figures you are also getting one of the versions of Mac McCloud; some people mistake him for Jake Raines but its Mac. In a way they really went overboard with both characters, essentially ruining it the same way that they did the Johnny Thunder character in the Lego Adventurer theme.
For ten dollars this is a good add on set; you can find it for a little less if you shop around but don't fall for the "rare" and "hard to find" crap that resellers try to pull when listing this set. I wanted to get it for the staff and the two extra mummy figures; I could have tried to get them separately but couldn't pass up the set when I saw it. If you are curious about the series and are thinking about getting some of the smaller sets, this is decent but doesn't really give you a full view of what the theme is all about.
