"As other reviewers have pointed out, the main build (Dragon) is similar to that of 31032, Red Creatures, and while being a nice build in and of itself is not what drew me to this set. The Troll can safely be ignored; the show stealer is the Giant Spider, with its fantastic multi-pose build, realistically depicting plenty of people’s worst nightmare!
The build itself is pretty straightforward but does leave a fair few spare pieces. However, with a reasonable small amount of effort, the vast majority of these can be incorporated into the original design, mostly to beef up the abdomen to make the spider even more imposing- see additional pictures. I also swapped a couple of the legs over to help with stability issues when posing the model."
"As someone who's not (yet!)seen the film, I bought this set purely on the pictures available on the web store as it looked like a fun kit for a very reasonable price (and even more do when purchased at discount with the Water strider set). And boy did it live up to - and surpass my expectations!
The box contains three numbered bags, 2 for the sub and 1 for the boat. I started with the boat, which was a pleasure to put together - for a secondary feature it gets its own instruction manual and packs in plenty of character.
Good news is the limited number of stickers involved -7 in total - the only ones that proved even remotely frustrating (for someone with sticker OCD) were the 2 hazard stripes on the tanks at the rear of the sub.
But as for the main feature, the flying jelly sub... what can I say?! It's hilarious. Whoever designed it needs a raise - it captures the aesthetic of a jellyfish superbly; the trailing 'stingers', the bubble dome, the posable 'legs' - if this doesn't keep younger lego fans as amused as it does me then I don't know what will!
My only criticism is that overall the set is a relativly short build - it's such fun I didn't want to finish it! Oh well... onto the next one :)"
