Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome green dragon + purple tail = epic win. If, for whatever reason, you've ever wondered what would happen if you took a ferocious-looking green dragon and turned its tail purple, Stompz is here to provide the result. And not only does it look awesome, but it's incredibly fun to build, and I hope I'm not the only one who just can't get enough of how silly its purple tail looks in contrast to the rest of its body. It reminds me of a war hero going into battle and killing 100 enemies while wearing a pink unicorn hat (if you know what game I'm referencing there, bonus points to you). It's all the more ridiculous, yet it complements the design and situation perfectly. Stompz is a building set with 356 pieces, all of which are classic-sized except the green rods that can transition between classic and micro pieces. Most of the pieces come in the standard assortment of colors, with the exception of the 5-slot connectors being dark gray instead of their usual yellow. The set also includes a motor with a long, tethered cord connected to a battery pack which requires two non-rechargeable AA batteries. The instructions you can find, both in the booklet itself and online, show how to build 3 different models - the model on the front cover, a thing that I would best assume is a pterodactyl, and another dragon that is much longer and thinner. If you turn the motor on, it will walk across the floor while whipping its tail and neck around. The Beasts Alive sets in general are some of my favorite sets to come out last year, and Stompz is a big reason why. For starters, it looks awesome (being a freaking dragon, obviously), but it also works surprisingly well when the motor is on, and it provides a great assortment of pieces that can be used outside of this model for other builds. The only thing that I don't like is that the instructions can be a bit discombobulating from time to time, but even then, it still shouldn't be all that hard to build. Overall, the only reason Stompz might not appeal to you is if you're not a K'Nex builder or hate dragons. Even if you don't buy the set, it's still worth at least one build by downloading the instructions. Just be sure you make the tail purple, or else the whole image is ruined.
