Capture the evil Dr. Inferno and keep tabs on his henchmen with Lego Agents Set 8635. Tons of secret spy technology is packed inside the Mobile Command Center truck to ensure that each mission becomes a unique, imaginative adventure. This building set contains small parts and complex instructions, so it is recommended for ages 8 to 14. And like all advanced Lego sets, it also holds the potential to keep creative adults entertained for hours.
Your Mission: Prevent Dr. Inferno’s Escape
In undercover mode, the mobile command center looks like a big gray and blue tractor trailer. But look closely and you’ll find hatches that open up to reveal an interior packed with the latest spy technology and top-secret information. There’s even a state-of-the-art prison cell designed to hold the evil Dr. Inferno, as well as a working mission brief projector that uses an LED light to display Inferno’s image on the wall.
Seven included Lego figures, a jet plane, and two cars make it easy to set up epic battles between the command center’s employees and Dr. Inferno’s henchmen, who have arrived to set him free. The Spy Clops figure, along with Gold Tooth, and Agents Chase, Fuse, Charge, and Trace, are uniquely detailed and ready for action. Inside the center, a tool shop, loading crane, and hidden weapons bay packed with missiles and blasters are in place to keep them busy.
Crafting the Command Center
With 20 bags containing 1,154 pieces and four books of instructions, the Mission 6: Mobile Command Center was the biggest construction project that our Lego tester had ever undertaken. In about eight hours he completed the assembly, took it for a test drive, and secured Dr. Inferno in the high-tech jail cell. Like with all Lego sets, the instructions include here provide colorful step-by-step images that make it easy for any diligent builder to create the detailed Command Center and it’s accessory vehicles. Although, when our Command Center was finished, we did discover that one sticker was missing.
This set gets great fun-factor ratings, due in large part to the opening doors that hide all the spy technology, and the fact that this mobile base is on wheels and can go anywhere. Our tester also appreciated the way most of the smaller vehicles fit neatly inside the Command Center’s compartments, the super-cool mission brief projector, and the moving crane. The detailed mini figures and the missiles hidden in the grill of the truck got the thumbs up, too. Overall, we found only one minor design flaw. When the Command Center is assembled and is pulled around by the truck cab, some of the hinges that hold the compartment doors in place come apart easily, causing play to pause while they are reattached.
Whether your child uses the Command Center by itself or as part of an existing Lego collection, it’s sure to inspire hours of fun. We also appreciate the way that Lego systems never limit imaginative play. All the cool hardware that makes up the Mobile Command Center can be used to build any structure or vehicle your child can dream up. And time has shown that building projects are a great way to inspire cooperative play between friends and siblings, too.
