"This set was released to coincide with the Aquaman movie, and it was only fair to include Black Manta. Still, I was expecting more from it. The price to part ratio is average, but the size of the set and what you get doesn’t feel like $40. The sub is blocky from the front with difficult to access shooters. This may be appealing to collectors because of the minifigs, and it is fun for kids to play with. Other than that, the set is pretty boring."
"This set is an awesome addition to any Lego Star Wars fans collection. The build is quite larger than I expected, which adds to its dynamic appearance. It looks striking as a display piece and a is a fun toy to play with. The worst part about this set is the price, which is $20 more than it should be. The set does have some kinda large pieces, but it still doesn’t justify the crazy price.
Really, the TIE is so professionally designed, there isn’t much other to say."
"I knew I had to get this set as soon as I saw it online because it’s a unique set, different from what we normally get from City. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: - different from most other City sets - a skier minifig with skis, which are great to get - a build that can easily be used in a Lego City - play features that can be enjoyed by kids who play with this set - the six-stud shooters can be removed - The build is simple (for the most part) so it is a good set for younger kids Cons (nitpicks): - the front of the vehicle looks a bit empty, and I think it would have been better if the snowplough was further back (it would have made it look more realistic) - the back looks a bit blocky - the treads often get stuck, and you may have to just press the pieces together to line everything up better
I have nothing to complain about because everything is done almost perfectly. There are a couple nitpicks, but they are overshadowed by all the awesome things in this set."
"I found this set on sale at Indigo and bought it, which is a decision I don’t regret. The set has a magnificent minifig selection, with awesome details for each one. The build is great with small bits you can remove to create different looks. The main feature, where you can blast a bit of the top of the archway off, is easily triggered, allowing it to fall off during play. The back of it also shows some odd colours, which take away from the look. There are many great pieces used throughout the build, which are good for custom building. This set is one you should definitely get if you have the chance to."
"Like all the sets of this theme, this set has a terrible price to part ratio. On top of that, this set looks kinda ugly. The “jeep” is oversized compared to the minifigures, and the net launcher looks bad and doesn’t work like it shows on the box, as it shoots at different paces every time, even if you shoot it the exact same way. The pteranodon looks nice, and is cool to get. This set is also a cheap way to get Owen. For me, this set wasn’t a good buy since the main build is horrible and you pay $5 more than you should."
"For me, this set is boring and doesn’t really “excite” me (I got it as a present). It’s $10 more than it should be, with mediocre builds and minifigures. This isn’t a surprise though, since 80% of City sets are like this. But, for a young builder, who is starting with Lego, this set is perfect. It has two motorcycles (which are simple to put together), a pick up truck, and a safe with money. The set isn’t hard to build, as there isn’t much room for mistakes. This is a set that could be played with for hours, because of all that is included. So while this set isn’t good for LEGO fans like me, it is great for young builders who are just starting to play with Lego. The only main problem with the set is the price, which makes it worse than other sets of this size."
"Being a Marvel fan, buying a DC Comics Brickhead was a tough pill to swallow. But after building it, I don’t regret it. The price to part ratio is better than most Brickheads, with 122 pieces. There are great prints included, which also increases the value of the pieces. The only weakness with the set are the exposed studs on the top of the head. I’m fine with studs, but it would have looked much better if they used tiles instead. Altogether, a good buy for $13."
"The return of the Harry Potter theme brought us a Quidditch match set, which was an interesting idea, that COULD have been perfect. Yes, I’m saying this set isn’t perfect. It isn’t even close to perfect. Don’t get me wrong, though, I’m not saying this is a “bad” set. I’m saying the set could have been done much better. This set was a must buy for me and all other Harry Potter fans, so I ordered it on the release date. I built it the day I got it, and worked the play features with my brother. But there was something wrong with it, and it was the fact that it wasn’t a complete Quidditch stadium; it was only half. I, of course, knew that from the start, but didn’t expect it to take so much out of the set. Really, that factor takes away from the playability and display ability of the set. And that is the reason I’d say this isn’t a good set. On the flip side, though, there is a great minifigure selection, including Severus Snape and Hermione Granger to recreate the scene when Hermione sets Snape’s robes on fire, which is one of the play features. There are a ton of accessories, including brooms, a snitch, and wands. There are also alternatives for the score board, so you can have any house versus any house on there. If you’re planning to use this set for parts, I also recommend that because there are many good pieces included.
Overall, there are many great little things in the set, but the feeling of incompleteness takes it all away. This set is average, and I recommend it if you want it for parts or for the accessories. Though, if you’re looking for a fun Quidditch match, this isn’t the best option."
"This was a set I kinda ignored until I saw it for sale at Toys r us. Then I looked into it, and figuring it may not be on sale again, I bought it. It was an enjoyable build, with not too many challenging steps. The minifigure selection is great, with Batman (obviously), Robin, Kabuki twins, and the Manbat. The worst minifigure here is the Manbat, since he’s the same version from a couple years back. I wish they had made a new version of the Manbat or just given us a different character instead. The Batmobile is great, as it was larger than expected. There is space for Batman and Robin inside, even though it gets pretty cramped in there. The inside is easily accessible, with a simple feature to get the roof off. There is lots of detail, even without putting the stickers on, making it a great display piece. It’s also great for play, with little things that can be articulated, and it’s very stable. The best part about the Batmoblie is definitely the movement in the wheels. It can go in all different directions and poses with this feature. Though, amidst the great things in the Batmobile, there are two flaws in it. The first is that the inside isn’t 100% closed up, as there are two small “gaps” near the base of the vehicle that leave the inside open to the outside. Secondly, there aren’t many things that shoot on the vehicle. There are only two stud shooters on the whole vehicle, which isn’t much. Overall, the Batmobile is a well made build.
This set has a few downs here and there, but the biggest problem here is the price. This set is $75, which is way too much for a set that has less than 600 pieces. This set should be $60, or $65 at most. This is a great set for many reasons, so the price should be reasonable so more kids and collectors can get it. Though, this is a must buy if you see it on sale."
"I buy at least one set from each wave of Ninjago “flyers”. They’ve all been great; until I bought this one. This is the most expensive of all of them. But the biggest problem is that it doesn’t WORK properly. The box art advertises that it can fly up and high, as on the box it shows kids shooting it through a basketball hoop. That is false advertisement since this thing flies less than a foot upward. I even tried to shoot it forward, and instead of taking flight (like it shows on the box) it crashes on the floor. Sometimes when I tried it, some of the pieces on the part that stayed in your hand fell off. Speaking of that part of the set, it’s terrible looking. Green pieces are visible on multiple spots on it, and the base of it looks simply weird. The only good part about the set is the Zane minifigure, but if you don’t have much Ninjago, you really can’t do much with the minifigure itself. You think this set is bad already, right? Well, this set costs $18, which is a terrible deal for only 92 pieces and something that doesn’t work. Yes, I understand that there are a lot of large pieces in the set, but still $18 is way too much. I think it should have been $15 or something like that. I don’t recommend this to anybody, and this is set has left me upset and disappointed. Basically, if you mean to play with this thing, don’t buy it."
