Surprisingly awesome
" Initially I was disappointed with bastion, because it lacked minifigures. after having built it, they would only detract from this amazing set. The transformation feature is easy to pick up and really cool to watch, the many points of articulation make for a wide range of poses and actions, this set succeeds at every turn and I could not be happier.
Well apart from an alternate blue light-brick being included but I understand that's expensive. Great work, lego!
I would recommend this to Bastion fans, Overwatch fans, Iron Giant fans, Transformers fans, and anyone who even casually collects Lego sets. "

A perfectly decent set
" this first part might be unique to me, but the Dorado build seems to have a tendency to tip over every time I try to move it. Besides that the main part of the Dorado build isn't all that exciting. The fruit stand is fun but ultimately not all that useful. The payload is spot on as well but nothing spectacular. And, before I get into minifigures, Sombra should have really been there. I understand why she wasn't, no one released after launch was, but this set more than any other would work so well with her in it, and also balance out the fight a little, as Sombra, like Reaper, is a member of Talon.
Speaking of Reaper, he's a well designed minifigure. the printing looks great all around and the shotguns, while a little bulky on the sides, are otherwise pretty good. However, leg printing would have been nice and this Reaper is out-shined by his Watchpoint Gibraltar counterpart, 4/5
Solider 76 is okay. his new hair mold is fun and his pulse rifle and printing work well enough, but he doesn't stand out as particularly cool. Not really Lego's fault though, 3/5
considering he lacks any new molds, McCree is a surprisingly good minifigure. His pistol is spot on and doesn't really need a new mold, and his torso and leg printing, and fabric piece, work really well. his face print suffers from the only real flaw with McCree, that a hair/hat combo mold would have been better. even that is only a minor nitpick though, 5/5
I would recommend this to fans of McCree and Soldier 76, and Reaper fans who can't afford Watchpoint: Gibraltar, as well as anyone trying to collect all the heroes and fans of westerns. "

Solid build, minifigures fall short
" The main Hanamura build of the set is well executed, with fun play features and the always welcome addition of a health pack. The guard minifigure is also a fun reference to the Dragons cinematic and an unexpected inclusion. Genji and Hanzo however, could have been improved a bit.
Genji is mostly a good figure, his new helmet mold looks pretty good and is accurate to the character. as with most minifigures across all lego themes, his torso printing is amazing. the dragonblade isn't quite perfect but it's as close as lego could get so I'll take it. The one thing that really brings Genji down is his lack of a face. even the generic clone trooper face would be better than his silver head. Genji is a cyborg, and, as demonstrated in the Dragons cinematic this is adapting, is human and still has at least his eyes intact, so this feels like an oversight. 4/5
While hanzo at least manages to have a face, and a good new hair mold and bow, his trademark tattoos are not depicted anywhere on his torso or arm. they are an important part of Hanzo's apearance and show up on all of his in-game skins that show his arm. With every other character managing a perfect torso print, his failure to do that knocks Hanzo down a bit, 3/5
All in all, a solid set with decent minifigures, that I'd still recommend to fans of Hanzo, Genji, or Hanamura, as well as anyone trying to collect all of the heroes (like myself), and fans of Ninjago. "

One of the Best Marvel Builds!
" The Build
One of the few Marvel Modulars, this set does not dissapoint, filled with lots of little easter eggs and play features to keep one entertained for a while. the fact that the Sanctum build borrows tidbits from the Doctor Strange subtheme version makes the build all the better, as it keeps continuity between the films. I love the new designs from that side as well as the unique designs for Spidey's apartment and the Pizzeria.
The Figures
Iron Man is ok, but he's available in a cheaper set and one of my least favorite Marvel heroes in general.
Spider Man: I like the gold accents and arm attachments to this set but I wish that the head was different and the legs were dual molded. The web play features are neat though.
Doctor Strange: the hair piece is a tad more accurate to the character's movie appearance than the previous version and the power burst? elements work well for him.
Ebony Maw: a solid figure and the power blast pieces are fun to play with.
Cull Obsidian: the weapons aren't perfect but the (I think new) head/shoulder mold looks great as does the printing, and if nothing else, the chains provide for fun interaction with other bigfigs and minifigs.
Overall while this isn't perfect, it's definitely worth the price and a good purchase for fans of Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Spider Man, Marvel, or even Modular Builds. "

Surprisingly Great!
" MINOR SPOILERS for Avengers Infinity War
I wasn't sure I'd get this set what with it being so expensive but I did and it exceeded my expectations!
Builds:
The Infinity Gauntlet stand is solidly made, though I doubt I'll use it much, since it's better suited for being on the Thanos bigfig. The gauntlet itself isn't perfect, but I don't really blame Lego for that.
The Benatar was actually a fairly well designed set, and despite not factoring into the plot of the movie a ton, it's solidly made and looks awesome, especially with the pod from Thor's Weapon Quest attached to the back.
The Figures:
Star Lord: If I remember correctly this is the same one from older sets, which isn't a problem for me as I've focused more on Avengers sets than Guardians ones.
Gamora: the standout figure of the bunch, surprisingly well made.
Iron Man: I've never much been a fan of Iron Man and this particular variant seems a little over the top.
Thanos: while I wish the shoulders and helmet were a tad more accurate to the move I can understand why they aren't, and it doesn't hurt the figure much overall.
In all, the set does have a few minor flaws but is still otherwise pretty impressive. "

Another Disappointing Lego Wall
" MINOR SPOILERS for Avengers: Infinity War
The Builds
The Thresher build is rather basic and not too close to the movie, but, not being the main focus of the set, that doesn't matter a ton.
The Wall: this is surprisingly accurate but not all that exciting. good effort though.
The Figures
Vision and Black Panther are solid figures, but both suffer from previously being available in cheaper sets.
Outrider: same but the other sets its in are within the same wave as this one.
Shuri: while new molds for her weapons would have been ideal I don't blame lego one bit for not creating them. other than that the minifigure is solid.
Corvus Glaive: I don't know a ton about this guy's comic book appearances but he was a tad underwhelming in the movie. That said, the minifigure works.
Exclusions: this set would have benefited more from a new Scarlet Witch and War Machine than from a reprint of Black Panther while the previous one is still on the shelves.
Overall this is a passable set but the worst of the Infinity War line. A must get for fans of Shuri and Corvus Glaive, or anyone trying to get the complete Infinity Gauntlet, but not much else. "

Solid Set with Average Minifigures
" Minifigures
Outrider: nothing special. it does it's job though.
Proxima Midnight: definitely a solid adaptation of the character. Although, she does suffer from a lack of leg printing.
Falcon: I definitey like the brick built style of the wings but I'm not sure how I feel about the dark grey coloring or the EVER PRESENT LACK OF LEG OR ARM PRINTING.
Bruce Banner: while the hair is inaccurate to Infinity
War and Ragnarok, it's still a solid mini figure overall.
Also, one figure I feel could have been included but wasn't is War Machine. he fits right in with this set and part of the movie, and yet doesn't show up.
(also I forgot to include in my review for the Outrider Dropship Attack that it was a tad disappointing that Bucky was not induced in the set.)
The Builds
Proxima Midnight's Turret: this is a solid build. not sure why it's included here, but it's solid.
The Hulkbuster: definitely better than the age of Ultron one. Honestly, it's just a good design overall. The constant presence of Iron Man in marvel sets has gotten a bit tiresome but no big deal.
Overal, the builds are solid (if in one case a tad unnecessary) but the minifigures are just alright. There's nothing outright bad, but it, and the entire rest of the line, could have been executed better. "

Unexpectedly Good
" This review contains mild spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.
The Minifigures
Rocket Raccoon: the same as previous Guardians of the Galaxy sets (which I don't own, so no big deal). Overall a solid adaptation of the character.
Teen Groot: the best thing about this set on the whole. Probably the best Lego version of Groot.
Thor: SPOILERS HERE I was a bit surprised to find that the face print was accurate to the movie. The black coloring on his costume is a bit dark (gunmetal would have worked better), but it's definitely accurate. Stormbreaker is a tad oversized but other than that is a solidly designed weapon.
The Builds
Forge: SPOILERS HERE This build doesn't really do the movie version justice, looking more like a washing machine than the gigantic, star powered forge it turned out to be. The infinity stone wasn't in this part of the film but I don't know where else they could have put it.
Pod Vehicle: a worthy adaptation of the pod vehicle from this scene in the move.
Overall, this is a solid set with a strong lineup of minifigures and (SPOILERS) a surprising amount of accuracy to the film. "
