WELCOME TO THE MESOAMERICAN CULTURE
This model offers in its center a step pyramid as an important part of the Mesoamerican architecture. Also, there is a playing field for the popular Mesoamerican ball game Tlachtli and a water source located in the jungle. Although not historically accurate, the model attempts to depict the key elements of the Mesoamerican culture and finally adds an unknown flying object and some alien equipment as a twist.
Exciting building techniques and many details, such as a triggerable arrow trap, removable floors and walls, hidden passages and a swooshable flying saucer offer a great building and playing experience.
The pyramid is about 28 centimeters high and is built together with the playground and the waterfall from about 2800 parts. The five accompanying figures represent 3 warriors and 2 villagers. The model is built from all sides and is therefore ideal as a display piece, as well as through the numerous functions as a play set.
