You’re a marine biologist scouting the deepest depths of ancient seas to find undiscovered creatures. As your man in the diving cage is attacked by a 50-foot Shark-Saurus, you know you have to act fast to save him and capture the great grey beast. Assemble your Mega Rig crew and prepare to launch the Shark Ship!

With this building system, you can connect and combine (and disconnect and recombine) the included mega pieces to build over 30 boat or vehicle combinations. An added bonus is that every boat has wheels but also floats, making them ideal for play on land or in water.

This Mega Rig set comes with a huge boat, paleo-sub, diving cage, harpoon gun, diver, boat captain, oversized oyster, and more. Oh, did we mention that it also includes the huge "chomping" shark? Get ready to set sail on one awfully big adventure!

My six year old loves this ship! It comes apart to reassemble into dozens of new combinations, which both challenges his dexterity and sparks his imagination - he's a pretty sharp boat designer now. As with all the Mega Rig products, it's fairly durable (we've only had one small breakage in one of the other Mega Rig toys - and we have probably a hundred pieces). And it comes with a hungry shark! Who could ask for more?

My boys (ages 5 and 7) love the variety in the Mega Rig items each year. This is no exception. It is a pretty big set with lots of options for creating smaller boats. My younger son received it for his birthday, and he immediately created two smaller boats (to share with his brother and sister) along with the large section. They even combine the other Mega Rig sets to create different areas of their "world" on the living room rug.

The best feature for me is the fact that the shark has a slit on the underside. I can get my finger in there and poke out anything that the shark has "eaten", so nothing gets stuck there.

A previous reviewer gave this a very low rating simply because it includes a harpoon (so they assumed that the entire premise of the set suggests violence). THat's nonsense! All 3 of my children haven't even used the harpoon, they are so busy with other features of the set. It hasn't even occurred to them to kill sea creatures.

Bought this for my 6 year old boy and it was the clear winner from all of his BD gifts. He couldn't wait to start playing with it. It has a lot of variations to toy around with and he particularly enjoys having the shark eat the captain, which is foundly named Captain "Crunch".

So far, it's not fallen apart or been broken by rough play, so it may last a few weeks!

First, let me start off by acknowledging all the negative reviews about the harpoon. Sigh. I have no intention of teaching my children to harpoon sea life. This is a toy. I guarantee that unless you are walking around with a harpoon shooting living things, your child will find another use for it. Let's not pigeonhole the imaginations of our children, mmm-kay? My little guy thought it was a "rescuer". He uses it to save the smaller ships when the shark takes a bite out of their boats. Moving on...whew.

This is a great toy. If you have a child that loves the water and sea creatures, you can't really go wrong. It is an inventive product and it is not a "bores quickly" type of toy. Matchbox took some time to ensure plenty of building options for the boat. It can also be easily incorporated in a water table, pool or shower/tub play. As all parents know, any toy that can actually go in the water is a homerun in the mind of a child. Does the toy float perfectly? No. Look at it, it's totally top heavy. Did I buy it for its buoyancy and ability to float without assistance? No. I bought it because it's an awesome ship with an awesome shark and my kids think that's, well, awesome.

So, if you are looking for a plastic ship that is less likely to shipwreck than the Titanic, this is not for you. If you are looking for a well conceptualized TOY, this one is pretty nifty. I think it would be best suited for ages 3 to 7, but, I can see some interest beyond that due to the multiple ship building options.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Two years ago, my son received the Matchbox Mega Rig Pirates Shipand he STILL loves playing with it! He also has the Mega Rig Matchbox Recycle Action Pack Building System He makes some pretty interesting combinations between the two, but I thought it was time to add to his Matchbox building set collection by getting him the Matchbox Mega Rig Shark Adventure Set.

The Matchbox building sets, if you don't already know, are incredibly versatile, and they are made to work together. So the parts from one set will also attach to the parts from another set. This means there are hundreds of combinations you can make from combining different parts of different sets, if you want to.

BUT, you don't have to have multiple Matchbox sets to have lasting fun! Just one Matchbox building set, like this Mega Rig Shark Adventure Set, can give your child literally MONTHS of fun. This set, like other Matchbox building sets, allows the child to use their imagination to make many different combinations of things.

I highly recommend keeping all the parts in a toy bin or container of some sort. Once they get mixed in with the general toy population, they can be hard to track down again. We had a pirate MIA for a month or two till we found him hiding in the Transformers bin. LOL. If you are going to get an additional Matchbox set besides this Shark Adventure one, I'd highly recommend the Pirate one. Matchbox Mega Rig Pirates Ship.
