Nathan helped me put together my Christmas present. And by "helped", I mean I actually got to assemble a few pieces of it.
I'd never heard of this series before, seems to be quasi-mecha-like. Of course you can't have mecha without enemies, so the kit provides you with a couple of giant insects to fight. I don't know why we have to portray humans fighting any alien life they happen to come across, so I asked Nathan why we couldn't say the humans and the insects were working together on something. Nathan looked vaguely horrified at the idea -- I guess it's too strange a concept for a nine year old.
