I honestly can’t get enough of Plants vs. Zombies. Not just the game, but the entire franchise. Yes, franchise. Once you have collectible figures and T-shirts featuring your characters, you know you’ve made it.
That’s why I did a full-on Happy Dance (no, there isn’t any video, sorry. But trust me, my dancing is not pretty) when I learned that K’NEX now has a whole line of Plants vs. Zombies building sets!
They sent me the Plants vs. Zombies Wild West Skirmish Building Set. I love shooting galleries and in this case, you get to shoot peas instead of bullets!
I had to fight Jason to see who’d get to put it together. And well, yeah, okay, fine. Take a look at my offspring in action…
It’s the usual mix of K’NEX pieces and building blocks. Jason always puts the characters together first, at which point Ryan usually comes over, takes them and starts playing with them.
Who’s crazier, Jason or the wacky, wild Prospector Zombie?
There’s such a carnival feel to this set, with loads of spinning action and places to knock things down.
When finished, your set looks like this. There are spinners on the ends to shoot, and a spinning see-saw in the middle that you can put your zombies on to knock off.
No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. Those are dead mummy zombies photobombing this pic. They’re from the Plants vs. Zombies Mystery Figure Bags that K’NEX also sent my way. Yeah, somehow all three blind bags they sent had the same Mummy Zombie in it!
Forget a six-shooter, in this showdown, you get a movable Peashooter!
Now, while I love this stuff I do want to be completely honest. We had some trouble attaching the Pea Shooter to its movable base. The K’NEX construction pieces just kept coming loose every time we moved the Peashooter. I did solve the problem by putting an extra piece underneath it all to give some added support.
Now check out the Peashooter in action!
Check out the adorable figures available in the Mystery Figures bags!
