Recommendation: no 3.9 / 5 from 100 reviews

This set contains a lot for $6.99. First, you have the "Swamp Vehicle", something like a miniature catamaran without its sail. It is piloted by a "rocker man", Frank Rock. I do have to say that I would have expected Frank Rock to come in something resembling swamp-camo gear (or else how can he discreetly capture the moonstone)? Second, you have the Swamp Creature (bearing resemblance to the Creature from the Black Lagoon) and its tiny island. The island could have been designed to be more than a holder for the moonstone. In my personal opinion, the swamp creature is the best part of the set because of its unique headgear. This is the first set I've bought that costs under $9.99 and based on its contents, I think that you'll definitely be satisfied with it.

All in all, it's a fun little set, but with Jack and the green crystal included in other sets in the Monster Fighters line, the Swamp Creature is the only thing really unique to this set.
