Snap Ships – build to battle!

Snap Ships – build to battle!

Are you ready to build your own reality? Snap Ships is a brand-new range of toys created specifically for boys aged 8 and up. The playsets offer a new way of action play for the now generation, where you get to build different crafts over and over again! The configurations are limitless and all sets and pieces are interchangeable.

The versatile building system allows you to create multiple crafts. To get you started, each set includes instructions for builds that you assemble yourself. The core of every ship build are the interlocking cubes, which easily snap together to build and rebuild.

“Snap Ships is a whole universe of excitement. It’s building blocks meets old style battle play, but for a new generation. Created specifically for boys aged eight and up, as well as collectors, the construction toys allow for numerous configurations, as many as the imagination can muster,” says Philip Galliford, Senior Marketing Manager – Solarpop. “The animated series and app adds to the Snap Ships universe, bringing to life characters, storylines and the crafts themselves.”

The Snap Ships universe

It’s aliens versus humans in the Snap Ships universe. The Komplex are aliens that have been destroying species in the galaxy and the Forge are the elite team of humans fighting against them. Both use modular ship technology to build and adapt their spacecraft. These ships are more than a construction toy or collectible--they're action-packed for battle play!

Snap Ships Features

  • Each set includes step-by-step instructions for multiple builds
  • Use your imagination and build how you want and combine sets for more unique builds.
  • The Forge and Komplex factions have two different colour schemes for easy battle play, but you can mix them up for out-of-this-world crafts.
  • The core cubes offer a stable base for builds, and other pieces create the sleek look and add movement.
  • No batteries required. Snap Ships are full of action play completely fueled by kids and imaginations.
  • Real shooting launchers in every set. Press the rear levers, and watch the projectiles fire! Launchers for the Komplex are red, while those for the Forge are green. It's easy to tell them apart during battle so you can collect them and reload.
  • Each set includes a mysterious piece of UJU tech to make your ship even more powerful!
