Get set for an expedition of prophetic proportions with the new awesome ancient Egyptian-themed sets from LEGO®
If you don’t know your Scarabs from your Sphinx, or your Hieroglyphics from your Horus then the new LEGO Pharaoh’s Quest will take you on a journey through a mythical myriad of ancient prophecies, legends and curses.
Join our heroes: Professor Hale; Jake Raines; Mac McLoud; and Helena Skvalling for an all-out action adventure to find the six lost treasures of the legend of Amset-Ra. Get your skates on though – the evil Pharaoh’s looking to break out of his hidden tomb and conquer the world……
Each of the six new sets features one of Pharaoh Amset-Ra’s treasures. After resting by the camp fire, Jake Raines sets out in search of the Golden Crystal! Help him with the Scarab Attack (#7305, RRP: £3.99) to cheat the infamous beetle that has come alive to guard the treasure.
Mac McLoud races towards the temple on his motorbike in search of another of the treasures in Golden Staff Guardians (#7306, RRP: £8.99). Mash those mummies with dynamite to stay ahead of the game. Swooping down from the sky in Flying Mummy Attack (#7307, RRP:£14.99), Jake Raines uses the plane’s grab arm to take one of the riches from the obelisk below. It’s an SOS to his comrades though - two flying mummies appear to claim the Soul Diamond for their master and win this epic air battle.
The Cursed Cobra Statue (#7325, RRP:£25.99) sees Jake and Helena racing across the desert for the Golden Scarab Shield. Hurry before the mummy snake charmer awakens the cursed cobra statue guarding the treasure. It’s the return of the Mac with the Rise of the Sphinx (#7326, RRP: £40.99). Throwing dynamite from his racing hotrod, McLoud blows a hole through the temple to grab another of the treasures. Looked easy but two mummies chant a magical spell to awaken the giant Sphinx guardian. Can Mac escape with the Golden Sword before it’s too late?
There’s a sting in the tail of the mega Scorpion Pyramid set (#7327, RRP:£71.99) which sees all of our heroes defying the depths of the Pharaoh’s Pyramid for a head-to-head battle with the malevolent mummy horde. Help the heroes to navigate sliding doors, booby-trapped stairs and mummy tombs to seize the ultimate Golden Nemes. Make a hash of this mission and our future rests in the clutches of the evil Amset-Ra.
