"Ninjago has had some of the most interesting developments on minifig scale functionality and style since the theme was created, and this set is truly the high point of that legacy. Ever subsection of every building is unbelievably dense with unique feature and wonderful scenes.
This is a work of art. There is an actual design philosophy that you become conversant in in the process of the half-day plus it takes to assemble this fantastically intricate cityscape. Every building has a history. No part of this diorama has been neglected, from the smooth mechanisms of the crab grill to the complex interplay of color, depth and function in the design of the canals.
Perfect for display, great for play, compatible with other building sets, and an exhausting joy to construct.
If you purchase one lego set this year, this should be it."
