Where. Is. My. Super. Frozone minifigure?
" The house looks very nice and sleek. In person, the build is much more full and enclosed than it looks like in the pictures (at least to me).
The minifigures are fantastic, and I especially appreciate the two different color of plastic used on Dash's "short" legs. I understand that it would have been too difficult to have hair for Jack-jack so that doesn't bother me. Although the Violet figure I got appears to have a small orange mark on the hairpiece, but that's not that big of a deal. The villain of the set does not actually appear in the movie, although a somewhat similar looking one does show up, but they don't have a car nor do they use bricks as a weapon.
Minor spoiler ahead:
This set seems to be based off a scene that Frozone appears in and I think he would have made an excellent addition to the actual set. Uuuh, Even if it was a problem with the price, this set could do without the random lawn chair area that wasn't even in the movie. I think the customers really would have appreciated such a major character.

I like the water tower.
" This set is fantastic to look at. The attention to detail is very great and makes a good display piece. The inside is a little more hollow than I would have hoped for, but I don't know what they WOULD have put inside. One of my favorite aspects of this set is the pizzeria. At first I thought it would be a useless part of the build, but I actually like the realism it adds to the NYC setting.
I did NOT like the movie Infinity War, but I love the characters of Doctor Strange and Spider-Man so this was a must have. And, a very excellent detail is the Daredevil "Easter egg" in the set. I understand that Daredevil sets based off the Netflix show wouldn't exactly be kid friendly, but I think they could maybe try to do a generic Daredevil vs. Evil-Guy-Kingpin set; kids really like good vs. evil and Marvel fans would really appreciate it. I made a custom Daredevil where I took the ears of Black Panther and turned them backwards to look like horns, though I'm getting off topic.
The minifigures aren't that great to me just because they're either characters we've gotten before, or characters that I don't care about. Or in the case of the "Iron Spider", they just don't look good (Lego did a great job getting the figures to look like how they do in the movie).

A Second Igloo
" This set is kind of interesting because Lego Minecraft has made a different set (called The Snow Hideout) that is almost exactly the same set as this one except that was released in 2015.
The set includes a nice taiga tree that rests in front of an igloo, as well as a torch that's nestled on top of a wooden feature next to some patches of grass. To the left of the igloo is a water area with pieces of ice inside. What I've just written describes both The Snow Hideout and this set, The Polar Igloo.
If you want a Minecraft set, look to get one of the other ones before you get this one. I wish they had done something a little more diverse with this set. If the creators wanted more snow areas in the Lego Minecraft theme, they should have done something other than an igloo since they've done that in the past. Maybe they could have had some sort of snowy castle or included more snow elements in the most recent Crafting Box (another Minecraft set).

Wonderful Design
" This set certainly should have been cheaper, and I'll agree with people on that. I don't know if the dark blue pieces are more expensive to make or what, but this set should have been 20 dollars (and that's being generous towards Lego). Past the price, this is an amazing set. The first thing I think most people will notice is the Mace Windu minifigure, which will be the highlight of the set for most people. Personally, the dark blue and grey pieces as well the overall shape are what sold the set for me. It's very reminiscent of the older Clone Wars sets and it's more of what I want to see in the future of Lego Star Wars. So, great set but not for people who aren't into the The Clone Wars or the Star Wars prequels. "

Yar Har Realease the Sharks Matey
" I'm not a big ship person, but I really like the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I especially liked this newest one, Dead Men Tell No Tales, and I also like ghosts and Lego, so this set was perfect for me.
There are many things to talk about this set, so it's a good conversation piece.
It's better to display rather than play with directly, mostly because the ship is not quite to scale. The doors to the captains quarters or wickedly tiny! Speaking of which, there is no captains quarters, it's just empty space. Anyways, the size is off, but it looks better with the minifigures than it does with the nanofigures, so Lego made the right choice there.
The minifigures in this set are fantastic. They're all exclusive to this set. We've gotten Captain Jack in a waistcoat outfit before, but this one is far more detailed than any one previously released.
The ship itself is very cool to mess around with by itself, but it's hard to move characters around on deck since it's a tight space with awkward footing. The ground next to the bell will fall through if you try to stand someone on there.
The bell has very nice gold elements on it. I'm not sure what makes it so nice. It's not chrome, but it's shinier and darker than the regular gold coloring. There's several elements like this scattered around the ship I've only seen this color before in previous PotC sets. Lego refers to one of the minifigures as a masthead, but I think they mean figurehead. This figurehead minifigure is very nice as well, though smaller than it is in the movie. The figurehead has a second face that looks angrier and more alive. I don't know how they did that, but thank you Lego.
There is very nice detail to how the ship moves. The rudder works and the cannons move up and down (though the flaps don't go down since the cannons don't move back). The front of the ship moves up just like in the movies, but a part of the stand gets in the way. It's fine however, because this part of the stand is easily removable. It is not explicitly stated in the instructions, but I'm pretty sure this is intentional.
The sides of the ship rise up to reveal where the two sharks are, which are as awesome as they look in the pictures (yes, a whole minifigure fits inside the shark). The fin really is cut off at the tip and minifigures can grab onto it (the fin, not the tip).
This set was very very very tedious to build. It's nearly mirrored, split down the middle. Not entirely, but enough to be irritating. It's fine though because the final product is lovely to look at. Something I didn't catch in the pictures of this set is that the masts are quite extravagant.

Hulk Smashes His Big Car Into Red Hulk's Big Car
" This set was a little disappointing and I don't know how. It's all up there in the review title and it was somehow still messed up. I think the biggest flaw was that the wheels shouldn't go inward at all. It takes away a lot from the impact of the collision, and that's pretty much all this set is.
Now, I understand that the hulk big figures cost extra money and so do the big wheels, but 60$? I almost regret getting it, but the Red Hulk Figure is really cool. At least all the colors are right.

Shocker Has Two Gauntlets Now, I Guess
" Like the title suggests, I want to point out the minor inaccuracy of Shocker having two gauntlets as opposed to the one he had in the movie.
But besides that, this is a pretty good set. I like the detail on Iron Man and the Vulture himself. There's a lot of play value in this set with the vehicle by itself.
I think this set could have afforded to throw in more pieces, specifically for more weapons in the back. Based off the movie, it would have been pretty neat if Lego had added a Citauri weapon from the first wave of Marvel sets. There is a box in the back of the vehicle that is empty and has no point in being there, really. Oh, well.

Good Starter Set
" According to other reviewers, this set is too flimsy. One said that it broke every 30 seconds for him. While almost all Minecraft sets are rather fragile, this one is one of the sturdier ones, especially if it's on a flat surface. This instruction booklet started out with a picture of a guy building the set on a flat table, and if you follow this obvious rule, then you shouldn't have any problems at all.
This set is great for people who haven't gotten any Lego Minecraft before. It's a cheaper set with good value and, even though it's a simple room, has lots of play value and atmosphere. The creators even went as far as to place a moss stone underneath the set. Details like this make building fun and why people keep coming back to Lego.

Modern House Feel
" I was waiting for a set just like this and I can't say I'm at all disappointed. All the living quarters from the Minecraft sets so far have been of lesser quality (in-game speaking). This is a nice change of pace for the Minecraft theme because this looks more like something that players would casually build in-game.
This set features a dyed sheep which is very cool, however I found the color they chose to be poor as it's very vague. There are three shades of blue in Minecraft, and this looks like a mix between all of them. Any color besides blue would have been fine and they chose blue.
This set also includes a cat, another thing I was looking forward to since I saw the mold of the ocelot's head. Here, I think the black and white looks good.
This set also includes a fishing rod and a fish. No other Minecraft set includes this.
The main problem I have with this set is that the back doors have problems closing. I'm not sure how that would be fixed, though.

Struck by Lightning
" This is a good set and has many play features. Some of them do not show up on the Lego website, so it was fun to build it while figuring out what exactly I was building. This set has many parts not found in other Minecraft sets such as an electric creeper, a black sheep, and a golden apple among many other things.
Lego has been listening to the customers and has made this set incredibly sturdy. The instruction booklet even includes pictures of all the ways to carry it.
There's an elevator for a mine cart in this set. Although elevators in Minecraft exist, one for a mine cart would be impossible, so you have to use your imagination a bit. I appreciate the modular design for the rails and how it's compatible with The Nether Railway (another Minecraft set), but the mine cart in The Nether Railway works better than the one provided in this set, however this one can fit more than just a player. I also appreciate the light brick that can be placed in many locations. One of the locations is behind a pumpkin to make it look like a jack o lantern, but it would have been nicer if the pumpkin had the texture of a jack o lantern as so many pumpkins have already been released. Many creepers have been released, too, so it was nice that this one was special.
