A very meaty set!
" The Nightcrawler itself is a pretty large and meaty sized car for seating just one single minifigure! It is about the same size as other brick built cars such as the Turbo Track Racer while using less pieces and costing much less.
The design and shaping is striking; I like the use of katanas for the front bumpers to act as ramming blades and cool to have the giants blades flank the sides of the cockpit to act as extra shields of sorts. They raise up with the shooters to give the car a mean aggressive stance, as if about to strike with the blades themselves.
The shooters do fire at very high speeds, so they will go everywhere! Bear in mind that because all four wheels are connected to their own independent axles, only one of the rear wheels will operate the mechanism for the shooters.
Having two more minifigures along with a motorbike and plenty of weaponry for each are all nice bonuses to the set; having the vehicles take on each other is a bit skewed due to the size difference! But you can improvise though.
Great set! "

Playable and displayable!
" This is a very nice set and surprisingly weighty for its size. Its size is comparable to the Ferrari F40 set from 2015, though this one is a bit shorter in length and can allow for one of three models to be built.
This set's main build is very well detailed; incorporating stuff like the rear diffuser, flared wheel arches, the interior roll cage behind the seats, the shaping of bucket seats themselves are all nice touches. The designer even saw fit to add yellow shock-absorber detailing for the rear wheels, which is a nice bonus despite how hidden they are (they are mainly visible by looking through the top of the engine bay). It's very clever how the parallel bars that are detailing for the mid-rear engine are also part of the function and connection for the model's main party piece, the gullwing doors! They open and close very smoothly, barely catching against the car's bodywork or not catching at all. The doors also lock up when the rear wing is fully pressed down.
A delightful set overall, and although I have not built the other two, they do look nice, the forklift truck especially. "

My first dozer set!
" For younger builders, you can get this as their first dozer based set but this is actually the first time I got one like this, having missed out on past ones!
Despite its fairly low pricing in the Technic line up, this dozer is actually relatively large. More so than I expected anyway! The wheels are indeed hollow, but they are much more durable in feel than they appear. And it's a nice change in colour scheme with blue, orange and grey as opposed to the usual yellow we've seen. The dozer may only have two functions, moving the blade and steering but it does both very well.
The blade can raise quite high up to give a lot of space and clearance for the front wheels to potentially climb up obstacles if you simply pushed the model along. And the blade can lower and even lift the front of the model up, so nothing the model pushes will go under.
Steering is articulated here, which is quite rare in a set at this price level; the last set to have such steering while costing so little was the 42004: Mini Backhoe Loader back in 2013. The dozer's turning circle is very small and tight, so you should be able to do a U-Turn on a table without resorting to doing many three-point-turns.
Flaws? Minor stuff like the pins sticking out of the sides under the cab, but they are likely needed for the B-model, which may be why shorter ones are not used here (not built the B-model yet). And covering them up with bushings or half a liftarm beam is not suitable as the front wheels' studs will rub against them when steering on full lock. The knobs for the two functions are a little close to the roll cage but it's manageable though.
Overall, it's a great set; well priced, has a decent number of nice parts like the small turntable, plenty of gears, the wheels and four sprockets in blue for the very first time ever, and very well done functions! "

Would love to see more designs in the future!
" This set I never knew about on here until I bumped into it on another site that's all about Lego. I loved the look of it as soon as I saw it and it's low price that sold me!
Both are nicely designed, very well proportioned and good sizes; I liked them so much that after buying one, I decided to get several more the next time for friends' birthdays and such! One I gave she loved cos it's Lego and flowers that won't die!
There is so much charm to this set, and I'd like and hope to see even more designs and colours in the future (besides the Friendship Flower from the Friends line which was a promo polybag). Totally recommended for yourself and your friend! "
