"As you saw on the title, this (in my opinion) is the best mech Lego has ever put out. Period. There are so many great things in this set I have to talk about, so here are my opinions on everything included in the set:
Minifigures: Mike the Spike: 8/10 Very basic. That’s all I need to say, but it is good to have him since he is good for play and army building. Cole: 9/10 Again, pretty basic. You get him in a lot of other sets, and if you collect Lego Ninjago Movie sets you will probably have him by now. And if you don’t, and want to get him then he does come in way cheaper sets. Still, good arm printing and nice accessory. Crusher: 10/10 Crusher is definitely the best looking minifigure in this set. He has great armour and helmet (?). Also, great prints. Misako: 8/10 Great minifigure, but the face print wrecks it completely. What?!?!?! The face is terribly printed on Misako, as the print is not dark opaque enough, so because of the black head it is printed on, the print doesn’t come out right as it is too translucent. Still, this minifigure has outstanding printing and the arrows on her back look great, too. Still, the weakly printed face completely derails this minifigure. Fred Finley: 9/10 I like this minifigure because of its rarity. Other than that I feel the printing is weak, and he looks pretty basic. Also, his torso can be used for custom minifigures (but if you only have one of Fred Finley I recommend not breaking him.
Build: Quake Mech: 10/10 There are so many things I need to say about the Quke Mech, I have just put them all into the following list to be quick: - The model is huge, and looks very daunting - A lot of detail, like tubes, speakers, lights and flags - The build may look very unstable because of the wheel, but on the back there is a stand that it balances on. Still, be careful since it can fall over if not handled well, especially on carpet. - Speaking of the wheel, that thing is enormous! - Lots of articulation in the fingers, elbows, and shoulders (?) - It can roll around - It can easily hold a minifigure in its hand - I like all the speaker elements on the build, including the ones that can fire off - The flags may look like they fall off, but are actually very stable. - The cockpit can easily open, revealing a nice looking seat (not typical on a Lego mech) and two discs as the controls with outstandingly outstanding printing inside - All the stickers add good detail, and none of them feel “unneeded”
Even though there are so many great things on the build, there are a few small cons as well. - Odd colours such as yellow and blue are visible on parts of the build, like around the wheel, behind the speakers, and on the back - It does fall over if not handled calmly, which is factor limiting play
Still, even with some cons this build deserves a full 10/10, since there are way more pros than cons.
Overall: 90% All in all, a great set with a great price to part ratio. I highly recommend this set to older and more experienced builders since this set is difficult to put together and may be a challenge for less experienced builders. So, even though there are a few cons with the set, it is still worth the $100."
"I am a huge Harry Potter fan, so when the theme was returning, I knew I had to get all the sets. This was the first one I got, and this set tells me I have to buy all the other sets. Since this set is so small, I am just going list why you should buy this set, and why you shouldn’t.
Why to buy this set: - A cheap way to get Harry and Ron - Includes Aragog, which I think is the best looking one yet - Great pieces (lantern, wands, 5 spiders, printed dish piece, candle, and printed eyes for Aragog) - Great price, as the price to part ratio is good and has a lot of stuff to enjoy - Great playability, collectibility, and display ability
Why not to buy the set: - The plants on the tree feel too bright for the Dark Forest - The web shooting feature is a bit difficult to activate, and often gets stuck, limiting the firing range but you can leave that out and not use the feature - The tree build looks a bit plain because of the lack of foliage and the area in front of the tree looks plain, but putting some spiders or pieces from your own collection can solve the problem
Overall, this does more than it needs to by providing an easy and quick build, play possibilities, and things you usually find in bigger sets (like casual Harry and Ron minifigures). So, just a great set and a must buy for all Harry Potter fans."
"I went to the Lego store to get this set on release day, and it was totally worth it. Everything you get is fabulous. Here it is:
Minifigures: Zane: 10/10 Nothing to say about Zane except that he looks AWESOME. I love the printing, and the new katana blade mold is good for custom building.
Jay: 10/10 The Zane minifigure was awesome, right? This one is even better. The accessories include a ton of new and cool molds, including a dragon design hilt. Plus, the printing is great, which makes this minifigure my favourite in the set.
Daddy No Legs: 9/10 This minifigure is definitely the most fun to play with because of the brick built cyborg legs. His accessories are great, with the grappling hook being able to attach to the Stormbringer. On top of that, his torso has back printing even though it is completely unnecessary. The only problem is that it looks a bit ackward if you look at where the torso piece connects to the cyborg legs.
Muzzle: 10/10 This minifigure looks like the complete definition of a dragon hunter. The armor like elements on his face look spectacular while you get another new katana blade piece with him. His bladed staff is nothing less as it boasts another new mold, which is the blade at the top. Again, great printing all over his torso and legs.
Builds: Dragon Armour Stand: 8/10 The first thing I need to talk about is the dragon armour. Wow! The new mold looks great! Though the rest of the build takes away from the overall structure. The armour keeps falling off, and it gets super annoying when you're trying to move the build around. I like the feature where you can access the secret compartment in the stand, but there's barely anything you can fit in it. The tiny bit of terrain just looks like it was put together lazily since the olive green, dark bluish grey, dark tan, and light tan don't go together right.
The Stormbringer: 10/10 There are so many great things about this build I've just comprised it in the following list: - Way larger than I expected, with lots of texture on the body and tail - Comes together way easier or quicker than expected, and I think someone a bit younger than the recommended age can built this - Like the spring loaded shooters that can be shot out of the mouth - The spikes on the head are moveable, providing many different poses - A good amount of articulation in the legs - The small flaps/wings can be shifted forwards/ backwards and up/down - The dark/navy blue, regular blue and dark yellow work great together - Love how the saddle can easily be removed and how there are clips at the back of it allowing you to put minifigure accessories on them. - The tail whip is cool and smooth, and is still great for play
Even though there are so many great things about the Stormbringer, there are a couple things I could nitpick about it. Firstly, the chain can get annoying because it can get caught in some of the elements on the head and neck area. Right by the end of the neck, you can see orange, which doesn't fit. Speaking of odd things on the build, the neck looks horrible with all those studs showing. Lastly, the wing elements can get in the way of the legs, limiting articulation. Overall, though, this build is great for play and display, and the few downsides are small and don't take away anything from the build.
Overall: 95 percent Though there are small problems with the set, I feel that the good stuff totally outnumbers them. I feel this is good for display and collecters bacause of the great detail, new pieces, and prints. It is great for play as well, because of the numerous features. Altogether, it is an outstanding set, one that I will definitely display proudly."
"I got this set a couple months after the release, and it was a good build, with great minifigs, and many fun play features. Here is everything included:
Minifigs: Qui-Gon Jinn: 10/10 He is perfect! You usually only get a Qui-Gon Jinn minifig in a set that costs over $80 or $90, so it is great to be able to get such a hard to get minifig like him. Obi-Wan Kenobi: 9/10 This minifig’s situation is like Qui-Gon Jinn’s. The only problem is that the hair doesn’t look right. I think Lego should have used hair that looked more accurate. Darth Maul: 10/10 This is my favourite minifig in the set. The printing on him is awesome and, again, he is hard to get.
The Build: 8/10 The highlight of the build is definitely the play features. The laser gate is done perfectly and is easy to open/close. The feature where Obi-Wan Kenobi can jump out of the chute-thing is simple but fun. I am glad that there are not too many stickers used, but the one big one used can be a bit difficult to apply for younger builders without help. Also, the build can easily start to fall apart if there is a mistake in the building (I experienced that firsthand) or if it is played with too roughly. Still, it is a good build and great for play.
Overall: 90% For collectors this is a great buy because of the minifigure selection. This is a great buy for young builders because of all the play features. The price to part ratio is a bit too high, but I would still recommend it and is a must buy when on clearance."
"This was my first ever technic set, and I was definitely impressed. Of course, I built the primary build first, so I’ll start with that:
Primary build: 9/10 This build used up all the pieces included, so it did take longer to build than a typical $25 set. Still, the final product was mind blowing. Just by turning a gear at the base, the rotors would both turn at the same time. That completely steals the show from the other parts of the build. Still, the build is very display able and looks great. The only downside is the feature where you could move the rudder/vertical stabilizer from side to side. It gets stuck sometimes and to me it feels unneeded.
Secondary build: 6/10 I built this one quite sometime after building the primary build since I was so happy with it. But when this one was built, I was disappointed. Over 1/3 of the pieces hadn’t been used, and the main feature wasn’t nearly as exciting as the primary build. That isn’t it, though. The shaping is a bit weird looking especially because of the ackwardly undersized wings. I understand that Lego was trying a new design and shape, but if you ask me, it just doesn’t work out. In fact, compared to the primary build, it looked so lame and ackward, I rebuilt the primary build just the next day.
Overall: 75% I feel this set had a strong primary build, but when you came to the secondary build, it just wrecks the set. They could have just left the secondary build out, or tried to use up more pieces for it. On top of that, the set used way too many stickers and the price to part ratio is just okay. Still, I would recommend it to anybody who wants a challenging but rewarding build."
"Just like any other Creator set, this one includes a nice selection of pieces. The price to part ration is very good. This set provides nice suggested builds, but is still great for imaginative play. Overall, just a great set."
"The Destiny’s Bounty is a phenomenal display piece, but still serves as a great playset. Everything about this set is great and here is all you get:
Minifigs: The ninja: 9/10 The reason I put the ninja altogether is because they are all the same except for the colours on their suits, accessories and their face prints. The only thing bad about them is the lack of hair pieces for the ninja. It is great to see arm printing on some of them, and the accessories are great.
Senseii Wu: 9/10 I think his face print has lots of expression and the cloth piece is well done. The only downside is the less detailed printing on the torso.
The Bounty: 10/10 Wow! There is so much detail on this! Everything on this is great. The two dragon heads on the front are nice as they stand out with the sails, gold and silver detailing, and elegant woodwork. The deck is adorned with hanging lanterns, growing plants, containers and barrels, and even a teapot and teacup. The secret compartment for weapons is good for play. The steering area is partially open and partially closed, and is easy to access because of the opening roof. There are other details inside there. The dojo has an amazing looking floor and is filled with training equipment. The telescope deck at the back is spacious and provides more space for play. One the two rooms located inside is a bathroom. The toilet and sink are nice, but the show stealer here is the rack of accessories including Vermillion armour,and a pair of shurikens. But my favourite part is Wu’s bedroom. It has so much! Firstly, the bed is outstanding. You can pull up the covers and Senseii Wu can just slip in there. Oh my gosh! That is so awesome! There are a lot of other accessories in there, which include the hilt for the Sword of Souls, a Stone Warrior sword, an anacondrai helmet, the letter to Misako, a picture of the ninja, and Lord Garmadon’s helmet from the Underworld — all references and items from the show. Altogether, just an awesome build.
Overall: 98% After all this explanation, do need to say further? This set is one of the best sets (in my opinion) that Lego has ever put out."
"I got this set as a present for Christmas and I finally got around to building it. Here is my opinion on everything included.
Mini figures: Jay: 8/10 Jay is just like how he is in other sets of the theme but it is good to get him.
Takuma: 9/10 He is a great minifigure with nice details, but I wish he had an alternate face.
Jelly: 9/10 His Jellyfish headgear thing is amazing! I just would like some armour.
Hammer Head: 10/10 There is nothing to complain about this guy!
Boat: Overall: 9.5/10 This is amazing! The buckets look nice and the bar with these flag like elements is great. The back has a good looking curve. The worst part of it is the front but it doesn’t matter.
Flying Jelly Sub: Overall: 6/10 I like everything about this set except for this build. The best part about the build is the sand blue pieces. The build is pretty small. The tank and engine builds fall off frequently and while the chains on it are nice, they make the build unstable while it is standing. The tentacles can be annoying as well.
The set altogether: 76% In this set everything but the main build is good. And just because of the Flying Jelly Sub, the whole set is wrecked. On my the other hand, you get some superb pieces and the price compared to the amount of parts is nice as well."
"When I watched the review on YouTube, I thought it was a pretty bad set. Somehow, for Christmas I was given the set as a gift. When I built it, it was so cool and it had been so much better than expected. Here is everything in the set.
Mini figures Aaron: 10/10 There is nothing bad about this one. I really like the Merlock Power which is in a golden colour and it is printed! His bow/crossbow has nice details and it shoots nicely.I like both face prints and his helmet is good.
Pola:10/10 I like the new piece used at the end of Pola’s accessory. Pola’s hair and armour look great.
Fred:10/10 The shield is great and the new piece used is superb. The helmet and armour is nice.
Twinfector Overall: 9/10 The best part about the build is all the cool new pieces. There aren’t many stickers used on it and most of the detail comes from the pieces used. There nice translucent green pieces. The feature where these turn into little things that fly is nice, but when you turn them into bikes they are instable and wobbly. Also, the pins on one side and technic holes on the other side detract from the look.
The set as a whole: 93% This set is a pretty good set for the fact that it is less than $30. Though for the amount of pieces compared to the price, it isn’t too good. It is nice overall, so I recommend it."
"I got this set at full price and it turned out to be bad use of my money. I’m not a big fan of the set as a whole. Here is everything.
Mini figures Gamora: 7/10 The best part is the hair in black with pink detailing on it. The torso and leg printing is identical to Star-Lord’s torso and leg printing.
Star-Lord: 9/10 He has really cool accessories and I like the inclusion of his hair and helmet. I would like it more though if his jet pack was detailed.
Drax: 9.5/10 Drax is the best mini figure of the set because of printing on arms, all over the torso and on his head. The only downside is his accessories which are common pieces.
Nebula: 7/10 The things holding her this low is the lack of printing and accessories.
Baby Groot: 10/10 There is nothing I need to say about this one. This one is hands down phenomenal.
Abilisk Overall: 8.5/10 My favourite part about the Abilisk is the great pink pieces. The mouth opens ackwardly and when you turn it the tentacles move. Unfortunately, the tentacles bump into each other all the time.
The Milano: Overall: 7.5/10 The colours are great and the combination of orange and blue remind me of the New York Islanders or Edmonton Oilers. I mostly like the shaping but the open studs on the wings don’t look good. The front looks nice and the cockpit is collectable with the printing. The inside is great since you can put all of the mini figures in it. The worst part about it is that there are holes in it. The Milano seems undersized.
Altogether:73% The set indeed has both goods and bands, but the bads slightly outweigh the goods. The pieces compared to price isn’t great either. Nevertheless, I would recommend it."
