MEMBER OWNS SET: YES     MEMBER HAS BUILT SET: YES


FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 8

The first impression is great. You get 3 calvary soldiers and a Lone Ranger and Silver, he horse.. You also get a cannon that works and a wall to hide behind. You also get a meh campfire with chicken and a pan.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 8

The minifigures in this set are great. You get a Lone Ranger, which you get in every other set, but this is the most practical way to get him and his horse. This is because the Lone Ranger polybag is a Toysrus exclusive and does not include Silver. And what is the Lone Ranger without his horse? Therefore, this is the easiest and cheapest way to get the Lone Ranger and Silver.  As for the three soldiers the torsos, legs, and hats are all the same. The only difference are their faces. These soldiers are unlikely to be included into another set or theme. So this is your only way to build your calvary army.

Of the 69 pieces you get, it is a great selectio. For unusual pieces, you get a cannon, cannon frame, 2 black wagon wheels, a printed calvary Flagg, a chicken wing, a pan, a saddle, 3fire pieces. A pose able horse,2 western shotguns/rifles, 2 new gunmetal pistols, sinsol silver pistols, a tan purse,  a gold telescope then some wood pieces. Wood pieces are great because if you get multiple sets, you can build a bigger fort. Overall the pieces and minifigures in this set are great.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 10

The playibility is great. The cannon  shoots a good tore to five feet, and you get mutiple "cannon balls". You can try to knock down the minifigures down, but that can be hard. And the Lone Ranger can fight the soldiers. And the soldiers and prep the cannon and cook chicken. This battle pack  has exceptional playibility, much more than Astra wars battle pact.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 9

This set has great value for money. For thirteen dollars you get 4 minifigures, a horse, a cannon, mutiple guns, and many unusual pieces. If one wanted to part this set out, the 3 soldiers fully equipped with all accessors could sell for 10 dollars, the Lone Ranger and Silver fully equipped could self or 3 dollars, and the cannon, fortifcations, camp fire, and instructions coul sell for for 4.50 dollars. That would be a profit of 4.50 dollars before fees. And you would also  precious ebay feedback, hopefully positive feedback. This is a great set to part out or a perfect set to buy at retail.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 8

The Lone Ranger theme, I believe is, popular. It is our first western theme in 10 years. I think this fact and hitherto fact this theme has a movie makes it very popular.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 3

This set is avabever at every major retail store. So it isn't that exclusive.

PACKAGING | Score: 6

The packinging oils unique with its yellow box and Armie Hammer on the top right corner. And it has a great action scent on the front, and on the back, it displays the play features. It other terms, it's an average back of the box. Overall it's a good box but, it doesn't make you want to buy this set.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 10

Battle packs are great small set investments. If you don't believe me read the evaluation on battle packs. That said, I think this set will peak around thirty dollars in four to five years. I think it will be twenty to twenty five one year after EOL.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 3

If you display this set alone in a office, it will look pathetic. If you buy multiples and make a cool fort, it will look better, but no where near that of tower bridge, modular, or an iconic Star Wars ship

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8

This set is an army builder. If interested in a display blue set, look toward the Comanche camp or stagecoach escape. This set has great playibility and any child or teen would love it. And for the price, why not get it. I love this set to play with and it is a decent to great investment.  If you are on the fence with this set, just get one and i think you will like it!
