5897 Orca whale set
« on: January 21, 2010, 05:44:08 »
I recently picked up set 5897 at Target for $9.99

   
   
I really like this klickie, except for his patch that just screams "marine biologist"
   
Our intrepid scientist sets off in search of the elusive Orca whale in a...rowboat ???
   
The beast is sighted
   
Overall this set is a great value for ten bucks considering the whale alone is 12.99 on the website
   
For fun

Hi El Fefe  :wave:

Yes it is a great way to get the Orcinus Orca @ a great price. I am not a big fan of the red rowboat and will use the parts to complete all the brown ones I have. The picture background is a great looking swell and I wonder where the 4637 surfer is.

Great set up and review

Great review, el Jefe!

And, I'll bet that many an Orca has wished that they could have hooked up a few "scientists" to their own equipment ...  ;D
