Fun Small Build
" Although I have not watched the particular episode of Clone Wars that featured this ship, the build looked interesting enough to give this set a try. Sometimes, the more obscure ships that do not appear in the main movies can be just as welcome as the main ones. The green highlights work well, and it produces a nice compact ship. The wings can be folded up or down to the desired shape. Two spring missile launchers have been included for play value. An extra missile is provided in the set as is Yoda's lightsaber. The cockpit opens outward from the top and the front and there is a slot in back for R2D2.
This is a good ship for those who enjoy collecting Star Wars themed vehicles. It is also the best way to get Yoda for a fairly inexpensive price. "

Fun for all ages
" My son chose this for a new level pack, and we have all enjoyed it. Those who grew up in the 80s will appreciate the nostalgia. Although not all of the video games were familiar, several of them were. The extra level is fun and it requires you to play a few of the popular arcade games in order to advance. While they can be challenging, to get the minimum score required, it is not too difficult. Some of the younger kids might need a little help.
The adventure world has areas that mimic the popular arcade games, and there are plenty of challenges, gold brick opportunities, and races around. There is also an arcade area where you can play any of the video games when you want. My kids really enjoy some of them like Rampage, Paperboy, Defender, and others.
The character has some nice abilities which help in the overall Dimensions arena. The car build is helpful and easy to control, and the video game console is needed in order to access the games. Some people might even want the console for display value in other sets. All parts are printed, which is a plus.
I think this pack is a bit underrated as it does have a lot to do and it can be appreciated by those who miss the days of hanging out in the arcade and eating pizza. as well as those who see these retro games for the first time. "

Adds to the overall Dimensions experience
" As a child of the 80's this certainly appealed as an expansion pack to the starter set. Marty McFly brings a fun experience as the character. He has a couple of guitar riffs that can shatter certain things. The hoverboard will be valued as a collectible item to some. It has some use in the game as well, but I think the Delorean is the star of the show here. Use it in the game to travel back and forth in time.
I will agree with some others that the level seems a bit rushed. Since the 1955 world is not in the free play zone, it would have been nice to see more of it than just a barn and the final scene before Marty returns to 1985. I do appreciate the hidden school dance zone, it had some nice details.
The free roam world is the town of Hill Valley in three different time periods, and you travel back and forth to complete various tasks. I think it is a good set to own for those who play the game in addition to those who like Lego and 80's pop culture nostalgia. "

An eclectic 10th anniversary set
" This modular certainly stood out from those I have previously built. Of course, it is the largest yet in terms of piece count in addition to the fact there are three buildings in the design. For those who have built some, if not all, of the prior modulars, you will notice throwbacks to them. I think at least one reminder of each one has been incorporated into this design. That also means that many of the creative techniques will be seen in the build, along with some new ones. This was also the most challenging modular for me as well. I would recommend a good source of light while building this one, otherwise some colors might look deceptively similar, requiring some backtracking to fix possible errors in building . The most challenging parts for me were trying to get the bakery windows aligned set into the stud holes in the bottom.
There are several minifigs provided, some with new printing. You get a barista, dancer, music shop owner, florist, photographer, baker, dentist, mother, and a baby. A small dog and parrot are also included.
The buildings are very colorful, and no doubt, your favorite color is somewhere to be found in this set. As always with modulars, some new parts are waiting to be discovered in the build. As the is the trend, there is a lot of attention to detailing on the exterior as well as interiors. Many of the parts are small, however they are used in such a way to enhance to details . Two baseplates are provided, and the footprint of the buildings uses them both to increase the area of the base by 1 and a half times that of past modulars.
This was a very fun and enjoyable build. Even the rest of the family seemed to want to give this a hard look as it was coming together. If you are into the modular builds or are considering trying one, I do not think you can wrong with this set. No doubt everyone will have varying opinions about which parts of the build they like best. Personally, I think it is one of the best in the line. There are very few criticisms with this one from me. About the only thing I would change would have been to allow the three buildings to be detachable from one another to allow for rearranging if desired (similar to the Pet Shop). Of course, that would be difficult to do as the one on the right and the middle one share part of a wall.
No doubt it is an expensive set, now the most expensive one I have ever bought from Lego. However, it was definitely worth it. "

Good family game
" We bought the Playstation 4 mainly for this game since there is apparently so much to do with it. The starter kit has everything you need in order to play the story levels, although to get every gold brick, kit, etc., other characters will be needed. You also have free roam access to three worlds: Lego Movie, Lord of the Rings, and DC comics. Younger children might find some of the puzzles challenging as I will admit getting stuck in certain places every once in a while. There is an opportunity to buy expansion character packs. These characters bring in new abilities and they open the respective world that they represent for free roaming. If you are a fan of the 80s pop culture, this might be too difficult to resist with all the movie themes from that time available.
The only drawback is that the portal pad has to connect with a cable to the PS4. For us, this means a lot of getting up to move/switch characters and vehicle builds on the pad, and this is sometimes required fairly often. I guess it does give you a little exercise and keep you moving depending on how your unit, TV, and couch is oriented.
This is certainly a good family game, as everyone will have their favorite areas to explore. It can be expensive, especially to get more character packs, but it does add a lot more possibilities.
One of my favorite aspects of the game is where you have the opportunity to rebuild areas in the free roam world. I wish there was a way to get instructions online for some of these, as I would like to try building some with actual bricks. "

Fun looking build and minifigs
" I received this as a Christmas gift, and this has proven to be an enjoyable build with some interesting features.
The car itself is indeed large. It will seem out of scale with other vehicles across the Lego lines, but it makes sense when you consider the Joker's personality. There are plenty of purple parts as well as gold accents in addition to other colors to identify this as the vehicle of Batman's archvillian. The trunk opens up to allow two spring shooters to be fired. The vehicle has rubber bands underneath which allow for the lowrider suspension to occur. There are other fun details such as the rooster ornament, the printed zebra tile seats, and the horn on the driver side.
The three minifigures have an amazing amount of detail. Over the years, the printing has really improved. The torsos, legs, and even arms have printed details. Batgirl is included with a cape and a yellow batarang. The utility belt is now its own part rather than a print on the torso. Joker is very colorful as expected, and he is a new variant compared to past Joker minifigures. He has a buildable flag gun as his accessory. Harley is probably my favorite in this set with enormous detailing from head to toe (or skate). Her accessory is a colorful baseball bat.
While the set is expensive, it does have a lot going for it with details and fun features. Kids and even some adults will certainly enjoy this set. "

A great family purchase
" A couple of years ago, we bought the City passenger train in order to place it around the Christmas tree. Now, it would appear Lego has designed one especially for this purpose, so now we will have two trains around the tree.
The minifigs are nice with two children, an engineer, a conductor, and a grandma. All of the track is curved, so it will make a perfect circle. If you have a big tree, it might be a little tight, so you may need some more track. I do wish there was some straight track sections for expanded possibilities.
The train itself is a nice build and is very colorful with some desirable parts such as the white branches and red wheels. The train is perfect for someone who wants a nice playable Christmas display the family will enjoy. If you are a diehard train collector who values realism and authenticity, it might disappoint. Otherwise if you simply want a fun Christmas themed train, it should be well received with its quirky details. The train will fit in well with other Winter Village sets.
The option to add power functions is there, although some earlier reviews are correct in stating that they are not well hidden if installed, thus making them look a bit out of place--especially the battery box. However, I would think many people would want to motorize the train in order to have it run around the tree or elsewhere. There are four different power functions sold separately that must be purchased in order to motorize it and control it remotely. You need a battery box, a receiver, a controller, and the motor. Since the train made its debut, at least one (if not more) of these seems to be on backorder at any given time, therefore plan ahead and get the power functions as soon as you can. "

Seems like a good value
" This fairly inexpensive DC set has some elements that should appeal to the fanbase in addition to offering some nice play features.
The three minifigs provided are excellent. You finally get a Green Lantern, his nemesis Sinestro, and a space suit version of Batman. The Batman wings are a bendable plastic film and two versions are provided. There was also an additional set of wings to use as a spare. Batman also came with an alternate headpiece to go beneath the mask.
The chamber with the lantern is a simple build, but it contains some nice parts. A clear jumper comes with the set if you want to launch a minifigure.
The ship is fairly simple, but it is a nice build with several greens in addition to colored transparent parts. It can also fire a pair of round 1x1 plates or it can fire a pair of spring loaded parts.
The set is easy to recommend since comes with a decent ship for this price as well as three desirable minifigs. It would make a nice gift or simply something to add to your Justice League collection. "

Nice for its size
" This was my first Speed Champions purchase. The finished product could be used as a display model, for play value with kids, or maybe even to add a vehicle to your city display.
The build is fairly easy as far as connecting bricks is concerned. The only real challenge is to get those stickers lined up just right. Some of them are very tiny as they fit a 1x1 sloped tile surface. A little patience will go a long way with these builds. It comes together nicely and does in many ways resemble a blue Ford Mustang. Along with the build is a driver with a printed Ford torso as well as a wrench accessory that is useful for removing the tire rims. You get two styles of rims to choose from. There is also a small lap counter build to go with the overall racing theme.
Overall, we are satisfied with the car. It is not entirely flawless as it does look a little longer than it should in proportion to its width. However, given the size and available parts, it is a nice build. The price is also right as it allows afFORDability for many people. We will probably buy some more cars in the near future from this line, "

Small, but a good rendition
" This is my first purchase from the architecture series. I bought it because my son and I visited the actual memorial the week before, therefore it has a special meaning to us. Whether or not you have been to the actual Lincoln Memorial, the build does closely resemble the structure. It is fairly small, and because the build is mainly made from very small parts, it does seem like a high cost per piece ratio compared to other sets. There is a nice instruction booklet that includes information about the memorial.
Naturally, as an architecture set, it is meant for display and has very little in terms of play value. Nevertheless, fans of architecture or those who appreciate monuments like these will probably like the set. "
