Amazing Dragon
" This dragon is an amazing set. I love everything about it. Starting off with the minifigures, we have Unagami, Kai, and Lloyd. Kai and Lloyd both come in their Arcade Pods and Kai also comes in the Mech-Jet so this is by no means the cheapest way to get those two. However, for Unagami, the main villain of Season 12, this is the cheapest way to get him. Now onto the dragon. In terms of build, this dragon reminds me of Stormbringer and the Lloyd's Mech Dragon. I like how this dragon takes more influence from Asian dragons rather than European ones and really helps to tie Ninjago back into the culture the series is based off. The dragon has a very, very nice head. I love the streaks of teal running across the top. The cockpit is very nice and well-built. I especially enjoy the trans-neon orange hexagon piece that acts as a visor for Unagami. The torso, however, is a little skinny. I personally don't mind this too much as the dragon is definitely more Asian-inspired and most Eastern dragons do have slim, serpent-like torsos. As for the legs, I like the trans-neon orange blades that protrude from the front legs. The back legs and the tail are both decent builds. I guess my only complaint with this dragon is the overuse of stickers. This set is $30 and has 11 stickers. That's quite a lot, but it isn't too much of a big deal. Overall, this is a great dragon and in my opinion, the best Prime Empire set. I would absolutely recommend it for any Ninjago fan. "

Average Dragon, Not Great
" OK, so going into this set my expectations were very high, as Ninjago dragons are usually amazing. However, I would be lying if I said this dragon met my expectations. Let's start off with the minifigures. Jay, Nya, and Unagami are all nice to get, but Jay and Unagami do come in cheaper sets. The Rats are boring and uninteresting minifigures. Overall, the selection is decent. As for the dragon, I must say that it's very posable. However, the design of this dragon is sub-par. My main problem is the color scheme. I feel the trans-neon green elements are too forced and really don't work with Jay's normal colors. Unfortunately, this problem is not exclusive to this set. A lot of the Prime Empire sets have forced trans-neon green and it really detracts from the look of the sets. I feel that trans-light blue would've worked better on this particular dragon. Additionally, the legs are quite poorly designed. On the front legs, the ankle sticks out way too far from the rest of the leg. Additionally, the toes on the dragon are quite blocky and stubby. My final problem with this dragon is that the tail feels disproportionately small in comparison to the torso. The body of the dragon is so large and bulky while the tail is quite short by comparison. However, this is a minor problem as just adding a section or two to the tail would fix the problem. Overall, this dragon is quite a disappointment. If you want a dragon from Season 12, you'd be better off going for the Empire Dragon, which is much better and costs $20 less. "

Amazing Mech
" This is an amazing Ninjago set. Starting off with the minifigs, Golden Lloyd and Wu are nice figures to get. The Stone Army Warrior is average. However, the star of this set's minifigures is Kozu, who is exclusive to this set (this version is at least). Moving onto the mech, I must say that the rice hat is a fantastic print. I love how crisply and well-printed the detailing is. The cockpit of this mech is cool. The arms are nice and include very good front and back elbow articulation. The hands can actually hold the sword, thanks to the technic piece in the palm, unlike in the original, where the sword kept falling out. The body on this one has a nice blend of gold and white, with a nice streak of white running across the gold torso. Now we get onto the most exciting upgrade on this version: the legs. The upper legs are adorned with several gold and white pieces, giving it a very regal look. However, as we move down, we can see that the mech has knee joints! Knees are a very nice inclusion on this mech and really make it a lot more appealing for kids and displayers alike. I understand why they can't put knees on every mech due to weight and physics but I love that they are now trying and I think this is a perfect way to do it. The knee joints provide a good range of motion but don't detract from the overall look of the mech. Overall, in my opinion this is a must buy and far superior to the original version from 2013. "

Cool Minifigures
" The minifigures in this set are phenomenal. The short-legs Oni is the least interesting minifig out of the bunch. He has the basic set of prints and a cool ax weapon but there's nothing too special about him. The other basic Oni warrior is a cool minifigure. However, he has the exact same prints as the smaller Oni warrior. Both of them are nice but they aren't the reason I bought this set. The Omega minifigure is awesome. In fact, I would say he's easily the best Ninjago minifigure in years. He has an awesome re-print of the Oni Mask piece and he has huge horns which can be rotated and positioned in different ways. Despite having the same prints as the other two, I don't really mind on this figure because he has a lot of contrast with the other two due to his head and staff. "
