Awesome set
" Got this for my son who is crazy about Jay.
It looks kind of flimsy but it absolutely is not, the core of the build is rock solid and while you might catch a lightning rod while flying the whole sub assembly will come off meaning no small parts flying around.
The action features are cool and the dart shooter can knock over shark army vehicles pretty easily! "

Great play set
" Due to the use of several large parts, this is a big set for the number of pieces.
It's nicely built up, especially the 'mouth' part, and everything is easily accessible for human hands.
Has some action features, the firing works well and is easy for kids to reset. Some of the minifigures are the highlights; Steve, Four Eyes and General #1 are exclusive to this set. Would have preferred another Shark Army figure instead of Zane.
What it has also done, is tied our Shark Army collection together nicely. "

Solid set
" I like this set, it's not amazing but it really adds a lot of play value to the very cool mechs.
It's surprisingly large, the front detail is good and it has that feel of a mass produced vehicle so very fitting with its role in the movie.
The price is a little steep, especially if you wanted a bunch of them, but it's nice to get Cole in a smaller set. "

Great mech, let down by everything else
" Let's get this out of the way; the mech is rad, super fun build using some very interesting techniques.
So why the low rating? Literally everything else about this set.
Yet another Kai figure, really generic shark army thug, and Ray is ok.
The rickshaw is weirdly proportioned, too tall and the wheels are too big. Could have been left out entirely.
The absolute worst part is Koko. The face print is so bad it looks like a lego knock-off. The black shows through the face, you can barely see the detail and it looks nothing like what's on the box. "

My favourite mech
" Despite being the smallest, this is so far my favourite of the ninja force mechs.
It just looks very, very cool and it's a blast to play with. When compared to the movie build you can see where it has been scaled down in terms of size and detail but it doesn't impact this set all that much.
Would have liked articulation in both leg joints, but the posability is still really great and doesn't really take a lot away when being played with. It may have been too floppy with that extra articulation.
My favourite parts are the minifigs, I love Nya and Puffer is hilarious, and how well integrated the stud shooter is. "

If you only get one volcano set, this would be it
" Love this set, most parts are great; truck, trailer and the volcano are all excellent. I love the details on the trailer like the crowbar and instruments.
It has everything you need to collect, move, break open your boulders and then have your scientist study the contents. So the play value if it's your only volcano explorer set is very good. As I've found the other sets do add to the fun though!
The volcano is rather large, but a doddle to assemble thanks to the colour coding going on inside it.
A couple of minor things though, the dumper isn't great, a seat wouldnt have hurt and again the repetition of minifigure heads. "

Excellent set
" Had great fun building this and the exploration base together (this is my set, the base is for my kid).
The helicopter itself is superb, great details and well thought out. The cargo modules fit in easily and are secure in 'flight' and putting the crew into the cockpit is a doddle.
As it has been said before, it's heavy! Probably not ideal for younger children to play with.
Both modules are really good, they're really solid and the little details feel right for the kind of rugged kit you would need on a volcano.
The support vehicles are great too, again good detail despite their size and work perfectly to move those boulders.
My only criticism, and this is across the volcano explorer sets, is a lack of diversity in the minifigure's heads; I have 3 identical scientists so will be changing these up for less repetition. "
