Transforming into 30 different ships, the Matchbox Mega Rig Pirate Ship lets kids sail the high seas for hours of enjoyment. Designed for children ages four and up, the Mega Rig Pirate ship starts as one big pirate ship. Kids can break the ship down into elements that make, or can be mixed and matched to create, an array of different vessels made for racing, going ashore, or battling against one another with friends.

What We Think

Ease of assembly:
Novelty factor:

The Good: Floats on water and rolls on land.

The Challenging: Pieces should be cleaned and dried after water play.

In a Nutshell: Pirate ship transforms into 30 different ships.


The Mega Rig Pirate Ship comes with two pirate action figures. View larger.
Built for Adventure
With the Mega Rig Pirates Ship, living rooms, backyards, and bathtubs all become places pirate adventures. The different ship components are made from durable plastic, which holds up to playtime on land or water. Built with Styrofoam inside, the base of each ship will float, and with built-in yellow wheels, can also roll along the ground. Smaller pieces, like the treasure chests, have rounded snap bottoms that easily and firmly connect to other building components.

The pirate-ship set also comes with two pirate figures -- a captain and a crew member, a harpoon launcher, and a giant purple squid complete with suction tentacles.

Built for Seafaring Adventures
Unlike some building toys, the Mega Rig Pirate Ship makes it easy for kids to jump right into playtime. Parents will appreciate this all-in-one building system comes already assembled as one giant vessel. And with easy-snapping pieces and picture references in the included booklet, detailed instructions aren't necessary for assembling the smaller ships. With so many scenarios and ships to build, each day can bring new opportunities for imaginative adventures.

With the giant squid to play with, this toy is ideal for bath time. To avoid a mess, be sure to rinse, drain out, and dry the items before storing them away. Outdoors and around the house are also good places for pirate adventures, but be aware that the tiny wheels work best on smooth, hard surfaces like wood or linoleum.

What's in the Box
Pirate ship, giant squid, two pirate figures, treasure chest, harpoon launcher, and booklet.




The ship's pieces snap together easily, allowing you to create dozens of different vessels. View larger.


Use the firing harpoon launcher to protect your ships from incoming attacks. View larger.

The octopus is really cool - it squirts water - and the ship floats, so the toy is perfect for playing with in the bathtub.

I recommend the two together-makes for a lot of imaginative play.

I bought this for my son for this fourth birthday and he plays with it a few times a week, though it mostly gets play time in the bath since the boat and the various smaller parts float. He enjoys the pirate ship but it does not get nearly the attention and devotion as his Mega Rig Space Shuttle. The sections that can be pulled apart from the ship only form other smaller boats versus combining to make a totally different type of vehicle, so one ends up with a flotilla of small boats along with the black shell of the pirate boat. Not as interesting to play with as anticipated.

My 4 year old boy loved this boat. He takes it apart and puts it back together over and over. He enjoys stacking the sails. He likes that it rolls and he can push it on the tile.

My 3.5 yr old picked this out. I wouldn't have chosen it but he was really infatuated in the store so we brought it home, and he still plays with it daily. It gets a lot of attention - in and out of the tub. I was surprised. There is a real lack of bath time toys, so what a bonus.

Saw some reviews of one star on this toy becuase they didn't think FFP is for gift giving? Kids aren't as impressed by flashy packaging as they are with open and play- right now!! There aren't fifty ties and plastic bubbles that cut your fingers- no hassle, no mess, and better for the environment. Plus- the brown box adds to the mystery for the younger ones. My God son lit up when that brown box was opened and.... he could play with it right away instead of waiting for 4 adults to huddle around twisty ties for thirty minutes- using skills only expert shoplifters must possess to get the silly thing out of the packaging. Thumbs up for Frustration Free Packaging!!

Also- love the MATCHBOX series with modular hookups. I'm pretty sure we'll see a Pirate Space Ship once they figure out the sets could go together. Yay for creativity!

My son got this for his 4th birthday. As soon as it was out of the package, he started playing and hasn't really stopped since. It is great for in the tub and out too. The octopus's tenticles come off, which is tons of fun for him. His does have some problems getting the pieces snapped back together, but I think with practice it will get easier. Definately recommend this. He also got another Matchbox little pirate set with the shark. I recommend the two together-makes for a lot of imaginative play.

This thing is huge. I wasn't expecting something so big, so it was a nice surprise. As always, Amazon had it here in one business day with no hassles.

Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging Verified Purchase
First, about the frustration free packaging - It certainly lacks the presentation appeal of the usual cellophane window box. But for parents it's a whole lot easier to remove from the package without all those plasic coated wires and straps holding the toy in place.
That said, this toy is much cooler looking than the average toy pirate ship. It comes with two small pirate action figures. But there is room enough for a dozen more plastic buccaneers of the same 2 inch size. The only drawback about this sort of toy is that the modular assembly isn't as versatile for an old time sailing as it is for modern vehicles such as space shuttles. It is difficult to create new ships by re-assembling the individual parts. But all the pieces float by themselves so a child could break this big ship into several smaller ones. This makes for a nice naval battle in the pool or bathtub.

This wasn't intended to be the big gift for Christmas, I had spent quite a bit of money on a train table and was expecting that to be my son's favorite. I was totally wrong! I even bought this toy as an afterthought, it was only $7.99 a few days before Christmas and so I just went ahead and bought it. Almost 6 months later my 3 year old still plays with EVERY DAY! It's nice that it can go in the water, and it floats and little hands can assemble it easily. It has small wheels on the bottom so it "sails" on the carpet nicely, and it doesn't have too many small parts.
