I Don't Get It...
" I bought this one along with the other spinners. This one stood out in how confusing it is. The launcher is fine and the minifig is great. (LEGO, learn from this. We could always use new facial expressions). But why include spring-loaded shooters? Am I missing something? What is the point? It's still a fine set, but definitely the weakest of the three small spinner sets. "

Come For Clutch Powers, Stay for...Clutch Powers
" Yeah, the only reason I got this was for the Clutch Powers. It's nice to get a pyro snake and ice samurai, but it could've been better if they were more exclusive. The weapons stand is more mediocre than I thought it would be. Worth it, but don't expect too much from it. "

Easy but Fun
" Nice easy build. Of the three 1-spinner sets, this one is the only one with both a target and more projectiles. The minifigure is also incredibly detailed, but the thing really worth celebrating is the head. LEGO, learn from this. We could always use new facial expressions. If you have a few extra dollars, pick this one up. "

Surprisingly Worth It.
" I honestly didn't think I would pick this one up, but had a little extra money so I decided to. Gotta say, LEGO did well with this. The spinner is cool, and the towers are very easy and fun to try and knock down. My only complaint is that one spider keeps falling off, but I don't know if this is just me or intentional. The minifig is great, and the face is great. LEGO, learn from this. We could always use new facial expressions. If you have some extra money, go ahead and pick this one up. "

It's Good, But...
" The minifigures alone are worth the price, but I wish that they had included one of two things on the fort. 1) A little more on the build to make the Samurai face an angle or add something on the hidden level 2) a pin section so that I could buy one or two more to make a bigger overall fort. The Wolf figure is fantastic, and I am surprised with LEGO's decision to include a full ice armor. That can't be cheap. It's a little flawed, but is still a lot of fun. "

As John Oliver Would Say, "Cool"
" Gotta be honest, this was a fun one. The bulk is justified with the detail and attention clearly paid. The tread is also a great build. I'm glad that they included the build-able weapons, most of which aren't used, as it gives me some extras to do what I please with (Please do this more LEGO!). The back tire is also a fun build, that takes a little more attention that people might think. Overall, great minifigs, great accessories, great vehicle. Pick this small one up if you get a chance. "

If You Want it, You'll Be Satisfied But...
" I found this a little disappointing. Honestly I'm not the biggest helicopter fan, so I might be biased against this. Another criticism (although a nitpick) is that according to rotational physics, this set would spin out of the air as there is no perpendicular propeller. I find sloppy mistakes like this very disappointing; it would have taken only a couple pieces to fix this. The main feature is putting a knob in the back a kid could spin to make the blades spin, but ends up making it a little bulky. I like the inclusion of wheels so that the side blades work better, and the minifigures are great, but not much else works for me in this one. If you don't care about my problems, you'll have a good time with this set. "

Surprisingly Original and Creative
" I'll be honest. When I heard about this set, I let out a sigh of disappointment. As a collector, I bought it anyway, and was surprised to find that my expectations were wrong. First, it doesn't take itself as seriously as the other sets. It knows it doesn't need one bag for every ten dollars, and chooses to give more pieces per bag. While this doesn't make the build more challenging, I do think that it makes it more engaging. Features are cool, and gives plenty of room to add on using car from the Land Bounty or more accessories. Minifigures are good, and the shrine is appreciated to give the villains a little something too. Despite the iffy price, it felt more than worth the purchase. "

Surprisingly Good
" I'm a person who have been a little sick of the mechs over the years, but this one was surprisingly entertaining. Plenty of features, and way taller than I thought. I could do with maybe one more feature (a scabbard for the sword perhaps) but it's fine for what I payed for. I am also a little confused about the spinner included, which did not get infused with glitter like the rest of the ninja's. I'm curious about why that choice was made, but it isn't a deal breaker or anything. Minifigures are great, with great detail on the armor. Please LEGO, don't make another mech next Ninjago wave, let this one stand out a little and people will flock to it. "

Regrettably Average
" I didn't find this set as much fun as some of the others. The main feature (the Spinjitzu transformation) is impressive, but sacrifices a lot of room in order to accomplish it. I would have preferred a more multi-room castle to this feature, or some way to incorporate the dragon into it. All the rooms are just a little to small to feel like the word "Castle" is earned. The dragon is surprisingly fun to build, but is a pain to store when no playing with. One point I will concede to this is that the minifigures are great, and those who can get past my previous criticism will feel that it is worth the purchase. I think that if they had added more pieces to make a bigger castle, it would've been better and I would've been more than happy to pay more. Let's hope that LEGO learns from this to make better buildings; they are the type of set I like to buy the most. "
