More of this please!
" I love this polybag. No unnecessary side builds, no gun turrets or anything. Just two awesome figures that kids and adults can enjoy at a great price. I wish Lego would do more figure packs like this with non major suits/characters.
I would love poly bags like this to be regular and common. Imagine two Iron Man variants like this. Imagine two storm troopers, two variants of classic superheros, two nostalgic figures like time twisters or classic space. "

No chance based on Endgame
" I doubt Lego was trying to base this set on something and instead said 'kids like things that fly, build something that flies.' Its a shame because this will probably be the last endgame set we get. Give us adults more than statues and mosaics. I want quality, adult level, accurate super hero sets.
I bought this set just for the Rescue armor. It looks cool with the color scheme, but I dislike the new head mold. Please go back to the original that looks much better. This makes the figures look juniorized. I get it may be necessary for the small sets for kids, but this is a larger one and clearly Lego knew this figure was the main draw so...? Star Wars gets elaborate head molds, all I am asking is we keep the good one from 2012 and not go backwards in accuracy and function.
There are other things in this set but all of it went to the "insta scrap" pile. Usually I keep all superhero figs built and on display but so far rescue is the only one still built and a couple months or so of having this set. Honestly I haven't even taken hulk out of the inner plastic. I have so many other generic Hulks I just don't need/want more unless they give us more articulate big figs, which is way overdue.
The helicopter I did build and tear down in less than a day. I disliked the side flaps and how many gaps there were. I now have way more dark blue than I could ever want. Please lego I don't remember avergenes marrying dark blue. Please spice the color palate up. "

Mr. Pancake head
" I can hardly believe this made it through review. I found this set early and its sillier in person. I love/hate this thing.
I get this set is based off a very specific style of suit. I looked it up and it looks ok in the pictures, but that is because the head is forward facing. This one looks like Mario jumped on his head and squashed his head into the cavity of his chest. He looks completely headless on display (my iron man display is at eye level). Build is blocky and not nearly as sleek as the concept art from the comics. Looks nothing like the one in the video game but I dont mind.
What I do mind is that this only has one unique figure. Come on Lego I see what you did here. A.I.M. agents are doubled up and produced in mass for all summer wave super hero sets and the main iron man is in 5 or 6 sets as well. Lame. Doubt it would have been too hard to make him battle damaged or dirty at the very least. A little variation on the AIM agents would be nice as well.
I do not like the new Iron Man/Rescue mask. It looks and feels cheap compared to the old one. It made sense for the Invincible iron man and maybe even Mk1, but this feels and looks cheap next to the old mask. Lego just made an Iron Man bust so they are aware that adults like Iron Man too. Why did you kidify Iron Man then? At least give us adult level sets with the good mask!
If I stop collecting Iron Man it will be because of the new mask. It doesn't look right and you know it. "

More unisex bracelets please
" I bought this one as soon as possible because it is in a color that is more comfortable for me to wear.
I love the chrome gold quarter round pieces.
Not much else to say on this one. Package was crushed in the mail, but the set arrived safe thanks to great packaging on Lego's part. "

The ring is helpful.
" Considering the low piece count in the spinner series, the fact this set comes with a ring as well as two figures really adds to the value of the set. The ring is extremely useful in keeping the figures together fighting and not spinning off under a table.
Jay is one of the better looking ninjas and Frakjaw is your standard villain. The mace however, is a pretty weak weapon. The best for winning is larger pieces like axes or end heavy swords.
The cards are alright, standard for ninjango sets. It's obvious that the ninjas a catered to win.
A good set is you plan on getting all of the ninjango spinner sets.
Thanks! "

Good city character.
" If you wish to make your city more eco friendly in general, or just add to the variety of cars this set works. It goes really well with the wind turbine sets and others that have been made along these lines. A good way to get your kids interested in going green. Every Lego city need a over-the-top eco friendly person. In terms of the car its good for getting rammed by the rock raiders.
Pros,
Add variety to the city.
Nice eco dude figure.
Fine part count for the price.
Cons,
If you arn't inclined to driving small cars and prefer the rock raider gas guzzler type then this set might not be for you.
Thanks! "

My favorite of the series.
" This one for me is the best looking racer of the series. Blue with yellow works nice. The stickers really add to the detail, but there are quite a few for a small set. Good with other racer sets, and would work very well with the Cars series - other competitors.
My only complaint would be not the greatest piece count for six dollars. Five dollars would of been nice.
Thanks! "

A fun set, plus good parts.
" The set on its own is quite enjoyable. The models given to build are cool looking, however the helicopter is by far the best. I was surprised at how big the helicopter ended up being. Overall a nice addition to other creator sets.
The parts given are good additions to your general collection. Not as many further creations available (own designs possible) as other sets - such as the dump truck. However, this adds in nicely when combining with other sets.
Pros,
Good amount of parts for the price.
The box is really reusable as storage.
Integrates into any collection well.
If you are looking for various blue and white pieces this offers a good amount.
Can be used to modify Plo Coon's ship (if so inclined).
Cons,
On its own not too many builds after the instruction given ones.
Thank you. "

A model and nothing else.
" This is not a set for children, unless they admire architecture. Even still the Hancock Tower isn't the most exiting building either.
The building experience is pretty much stacking bricks, nothing too complex or stimulating in this build.
Piece count is pretty ridiculous at 29 cents a piece. Seriously practically this whole set could be bought from pick a brick for less (a recommendation to consider). This set would be fine at ten, but twenty is a flat out joke (no ones laughing).
This is for people who like architecture more than people who like Legos. If you've been craving a model of the Hancock Tower (idk why) this is the set for you. "

Skills for any level builder.
" This set is an amazing way to enhance your building abilities. For many of us building sideways can be difficult or is a skill less practiced, here is the chance to either newly learn or gain multiple techniques that one has not tried before.
The minifigure is a fresh blast to the past of classic Lego.
The parts are many we've seen before and a few rare ones, but its the guidance given that really makes this set.
If you love Lego creator then you'll love this set. Multiple possibilities from a few parts, but with advice strait from Lego.
Thanks. "
