It’s designed to be opened without the use of a box cutter or knife and will protect your product just as well as traditional packaging during shipping. The Frustration-Free Packaging on this toy saves on 4-color printing and minimizes the use of PVC windows, blister packs, fasteners, and 4-color inserts. This item ships in its own box, without the need for an additional shipping box .

Little astronauts have all the gear they need to explore the reaches of outer space with the Mattel Matchbox Mega Rig Space Shuttle Mission Set. Using parts that snap together easily, kids will love building 30 different space crafts and inventing new worlds to explore. While the set is recommended for explorers aged four and up, it has small parts that make it inappropriate for children who require constant monitoring.



The Mega Rig lets you build 30 different space crafts.

Kids can use their imagination to create intergalactic space fights. What We Think
Fun Factor:

Durability:

(what this means)

The Good: Durable building system encourages imaginative play

The Bad: Lots of small parts to keep track of

In a Nutshell: The Mega Rig Space Shuttle Mission Set provides hours of fun constructing space vehicles and thinking up places to explore At a Glance
Ages: 4 and up
Getting Ready for Your First Mission
Since part of the fun is in thinking up ways to build a spacecraft from the many different parts, this Mega Rig set is ready to go without any difficult or time-consuming set-up. The set includes simple, illustrated instructions that will help you and your child build a large space shuttle with an exterior fuel tank and an all-terrain vehicle base that can be used as a launching site. The instructions include photos of other possible configurations and illustrations showing important details such as how to launch missiles, lock the shuttle's arm in place for space walks, and the many ways to combine Mega Rig wheels.

The UFO included in this set features other-worldly lights and sound, and it is powered by three button-cell batteries (AG13/LR44). Test batteries are included, but you will want to purchase another set just in case. The Shuttle Mission Set is compatible with all Mega Rig building systems, making it easy to combine different sets and inspire kid's creativity.

Galactic Exploration
Once a spaceship has been assembled, there are plenty of missions your child can accomplish. Between launching the satellite into orbit and coordinating an exploratory space walk, your child will be busy watching out for missiles shot from the UFO with its alien inside. The durable octagon shaped connectors hold pieces of each space craft together until they are pulled apart on purpose.

Our favorite configurations included snapping the bright orange all-terrain wheels onto the shuttle or UFO for land adventures, combining the shuttle and the fuel cell into one gigantic space ship, and loading the launch pad with accessories to create a headquarters for operations on distant moons and planets.

Other cool features include a space arm controlled by a lever, an oversized astro grabber for moving equipment or keeping the alien at bay, and plenty of fun compartments for the astronaut and alien to hide in. Your child will surely want to take this shuttle everywhere, but with so many small parts to keep track of, traveling with this set can require extra attention to detail.

Long-Lasting Imaginative Play
The sturdy plastic shuttle and its accessories held up well throughout our vigorous test missions, and the Mega Rig building systems are known for their durability. The moving parts and hinged compartments that make this shuttle so much fun could potentially come apart with lots of rough play, but we found the system to be extremely durable.

With the alien and the astronaut ready to be your friend or enemy, and the ability to make more than one vehicle at the same time, this building system is great for cooperative play or a single child with an active imagination. The ability to combine and recombine parts in so many ways offers a new experience every time your child picks up a piece of this shuttle system, so the fun never runs out.

What's in the Box
33 parts that can be assembled into more than 30 different space vehicles.

Here is what people are saying about the Matchbox Mega Rig Space Shuttle [with Frustration-Free Packaging]
5 Star Rating  "Everyone loves it . . ." 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
My 7 year old son got this for his birthday and loves it. It is so versatile and also seemingly indestructible. His 4 year old sister also enjoys playing with it as well as their friends who come over to play. I got this on sale and it was definitely worth it.

I bought this for my 4 year old grandson. My daughter tells me he loves the toy, that it is complex, very entertaining and educational.
 
5 Star Rating  "Super imagination fun for 6 year old!" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Shreveport, LA USA
Our son received this for Christmas and played with it right away. He repeatedly went back to it after spending short amounts of time with his larger, more expensive gifts. There are enough different parts (not too many little ones and many ways to put them together so he was able to be super creative. And he hasn't tired of it.
 
5 Star Rating  "This one is a hit" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Clearwater, FL
My son received this for Christmas and he loves it. It is 3 (or more) toys in one. He plays with the space shuttle, he plays with the alien ship, and he rolls the space shuttle on the transporter to the launch site. His grandpa was in charge of putting this one together on Christmas morning and grandpa spent a lot of time playing with it. And my husband will suggest it when my son asks him to play. And, of course, I like it too. It really lets his imagination take off. The Amazon packaging was a bonus - so nice after suffering through the standard packaging for other toys. I highly recommend this toy.

My six year old son plays with the shuttle and ufo for long periods of time and loves to take apart and put back together again in different ways.
 
5 Star Rating  "Lots of Fun for boys!" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
My boys 2.5 and 7 absolutely love this toy. They especially likw the alien and the alien spaceship. They love all space things and this fits nicely with some of their star wars play sets. My 2.5 year old has even been taking the little alien ship to bed with him at night! This is a great set for any kid who are into spaceships.
