Mega Bloks, those weird, distant-cousins of Lego, have gotten surprisingly elaborate over the past few years. In fact, they’re the only way you can build your own official Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 vehicles and boats like the folks from Glorious Eye Candy—who then blew them all up in front of a high-speed camera.
From the company that brought you the Porsche 911 GT3 RS that kept me sane during a snow storm comes a new line of Team Hot Wheels vehicles, mini-figs and play sets created in partnership with Mattel.
Who would want to buy Need for Speed-branded Mega Bloks construction sets? That's the question I asked myself when I first heard the LEGO competitor had taken on EA's racing game license earlier this year. Now that the sets are hitting store shelves, I have an answer: Me.
