"This is definitely a great set. Not only does it have a greatly-built Batwing and LexCorp helicopter, but it also contains 5 amazing minifigures! Certainly my new favorite DC Comics set. The Batwing in this set is very well done. I feel like it's very accurate to the movie and has a few solid play features. However, there are also a few unfortunate flaws about the Batwing. For example, the cockpit of the Batwing, when first assembled, made a loud creaking noise when opened. Luckily, there is a way to fix this problem- simply run water over the cockpit piece and connector and move it around quickly. This will fix both the creaking issue as well as eliminate some (but not too much) friction from the pieces. The only other problems are that the folding wings feature doesn't always work perfectly (which can also be fixed with a little water!) and the underside of the wings don't look very great, but that's to be understood. Other than that the Batwing is a really amazing model. Batman fits well into the cockpit and can be taken out easily, which is always nice to see. The gatling gun on the front of it is also pretty cool for play, as well as it being very accurate to the movie. Overall, despite it's flaws this is a really good representation of the Batwing and is worthy of a good rating. The LexCorp helicopter, while not being perfectly accurate, is definitely something to be noted. The part about it that I like most is the fact that it's different from other Lego helicopters- not the same overall structure- which is very much appreciated every once in awhile. I also like the use of the Speed Champions canopy piece as the windscreen of the helicopter. Although not as accurate as the Batwing it's another good build and adds lots of playability to the set. Lastly, the minifigures- the best part of this set by far. The new Batman is great and along with Superman has dual-molded legs, which was a nice surprise. The printing on both Batman and Superman is very detailed. I also really like the new face for Superman and the new hairpiece as well. Lois Lane is nice, not much to be said about her except that she's certainly a large improvement from the last version. Lex is also very good, but his face could be more expressive in my opinion. Of course Wonder Woman steals the show- clearly the best minifigure in this set. Excellent printing, a new hair piece, and a very nicely done shield as well. Overall a phenomenal figure selection- although it's a shame there's no Doomsday figure. In conclusion I think this set is great. Good value, lots of playability, and one of the best figure selection of the 2016 year so far. Keep up the good work, Lego!"
"I recently bought this Doc Brown fun pack for my Lego Dimensions collection, and I must say that it is one of my absolute favorites! Doc has lots of abilities that are very effective to get gold bricks, and has access to the Back To The Future adventure world. Doc's abilities consist of Drone Access, Techno Panels, Fixing/Repair, and Hacking. All of these powers are very useful in the game, and all work very well. Contrary to one of the other reviews, the Drone Access feature works quite well, and is used more than once in the game. The issue the other user seemed to be having was that the drone cannot enter the tubes if Doc is too close to them, as pictured by the reviewer. Doc's other abilities are, again, useful because there are lots of appearances of Techno Panels and Hacking throughout the game. Other than that Doc is a very cool character to play as and (I think) is voiced by Christopher Lloyd himself. Doc's vehicle is the Time Train, which is pretty cool because of it's ability to time travel in-game. It is one of the two vehicles that can use this power (other than the DeLorean.) However, time travel is the only special thing about the Time Train, so otherwise it's not very useful*. Overall I think that this is an extremely effective and worthwhile Dimensions pack to purchase, and I would definitely recommend it to any Dimensions player. *The Time Train does seem to have a small glitch where it can't fly very high, as opposed to some other flying vehicles. This may just be a problem with the system, or maybe it's supposed to be that way. I'd like to see if anyone else has that problem."
"Spoiler-free review: This set is, I must say, very good. Primarily it is a "troop-builder" so people buy this for the minifigures alone most times. However, this set also includes a small turret-style blaster cannon that can shoot studs from the top. It also has space for extra studs and a control console that can be folded out from inside it. The figures, though, are the main reason that I purchased this set. I was very happy to have obtained a First Order Stormtrooper, because I didn't want to pay the quite steep price of the First Order Transporter. This set comes with one regular First Order Stormtrooper, one heavy gunner, and two imperial officers. to be honest, I would have liked to see another regular Stormtrooper in this set, but nonetheless the figure selection is very good and adds a lot to anyone's First Order armies. I would recommend this set to any fan of Star Wars, being that it's a simple build, cheap, and has very nice minifigures."
"It recently occurred to me that even though I bought this set earlier in the year, I hadn't written a review on it. This set is simply the best and most extravagant LEGO product I have ever purchased in my life. Absolutely phenomenal and lengthy build (I am a well-educated builder and this set took me 7 hours and 12 minutes to fully assemble) with beautiful techniques and exceptional detail. When I first acquired enough money to purchase a modular building, I wanted the Detective's Office. I decided on this one because I figured it would have more space in the inside for play (which it does). I am definitely very happy with my decision. Although I may end up obtaining the Detective's Office at some point, I feel like this set is a great set to start your modular collection. However, I am by all means not saying that this set is easy to build. In all honesty most of the time spent constructing this magnificent model was looking for pieces, as it comes with so many and most are of similar colors. The techniques are not specifically difficult, but I could see possible trouble with kids younger than 10 trying to build this set. The set is 3 stories tall, with individual rooms on the inside. There is plenty of space to pose and play with your minifgures, and obviously you have to remove any floors above the space to access the area (this is not a complaint, as this is meant to be a modular structure). On the first floor, there is the main dining/cooking are for the restaurant. Please do note that the restaurant is only on the first floor and outside balcony on the second floor. The restaurant floor is definitely the most detailed and in my opinion best floor of the building. There is lots of space and accessories like a refrigerator, sink, countertops with cooking utensils and an island in the center. In the dining area, there are two tables and a very nicely designed cabinet holding some bottles. The floor is fully "tiled" in the kitchen and has simulated hardwood floors in the main section. Before talking about the second floor, I'd like to first mention the outdoor balcony. It is mostly made up of a few small tables and a railing lining the edges. There are also some lamp posts along the railing to brighten the mood. The stairway goes from the front of the outside of the building all the way to the third floor, going through the balcony. The only other detail is that there is a small table or other platform holding yet another set of bottles. The second floor of the Parisian Restaurant is a cozy apartment. The living space includes a kitchen area, living room coffee table and chair, a table at the eating space, and a warm fireplace. There is even a fold-out bed for the minifig couple to sleep on. Finally, there is a door to enter directly from the balcony and a small terrace on the reverse side of the set. The third floor, an artist's studio, is the least detailed of the three floors but still has some charming features. There is a modestly sized canvas holder and palette stand. There is also a canvas storage space (which holds both small brick-built canvases). Also there is a furnace or fireplace of some kind, but I am not knowledgeable enough in my art vocabulary to put a name to it (possibly a kiln?) There is a stairwell on the outside of the third floor that leads up and down from the main balcony as previously mentioned. The way the artist's studio is accessed is by opening the whole backside of the third floor similar to a hatch. To "top" it off (excuse the pun) we have exceptional detailing on the outside of the third floor, featuring to white ornate structures that really add to the Parisian look itself. The only other thing that is yet to be mentioned is the outside of the building (excluding the balcony section). The front of the restaurant section has another set of small tables as well as flower holders on the outside. The following is not a noticeable detail just by looking at the building, but as you're building this model you will be able to see it. The outside front dining area has a tiled floor, and if the tables are removed, the tiles spell out "Chez" hence the restaurant's name "Chez Albert". I thought this was a genius little idea and hope to see more little secrets like these in the future. Wow, what a set. This is the longest review I've written on LEGO'S website, and I believe this set well deserves it. While looking beautiful and very fancy on the outside, this set also looks great and has many details on the inside. Thank you so much LEGO for making this magnificent set. Definitely my best purchase by far. I recommend this set to anyone, and I hope this long review is very beneficial to you. Thanks!"
"I recently bought this set at a local Barnes and Noble Booksellers store and I am very impressed. First of all, included in the set is a 'Corrupted" Mask of Ice/Kopaka's mask. I have to say that it's pretty cool, with a special fade effect for the corruption engulfing the mask. Now onto the main part of the set, which is obviously the highlight. Skull Warrior is a fairly generic name, but this figure really exceeds all expectations. The mask on this guy is really cool, and is sporting a dark "Gunmetal" grey color. He comes with some very excellent pieces, including some transparent light blue "bones" and a new mould for his skeletal ribcage. Also included are some add-on armor pieces, which look great on the arm and leg of the figure. Finally, the weapons that come with this figure are, though not the best, very cool. I really like the bow setup with the transparent light blue bone pieces protruding from the front, as well as the six-shooter function, which is not used much by me personally but is great for play value. The other weapon is a long spear-like thing with a very thin structure. It's a good, small build and I think it suits the figure nicely. Overall I think this set is spectacular and would recommend it to any Bionicle or other LEGO fan who is looking for a great set to add to their collection."
"Wow, this set is amazing. First of all, you get Carnage in this set. That alone is the reason some folks would want this set. however, the set itself is really good. You get, of course, Carnage, and then a shield agent and Miles Morales. For the ship or vehicle itself, I'd say it's small but fits the scene well. It has room for one minifigure in the cockpit and storage for the extra weapons/studs for the stud shooters. Overall it has a nice color scheme and is fun to put on display with the included minifigs. The minifigures, though, is the reason I'm sure that we're all here for. First of all, Carnage is one of the most detailed super heroes minifigures I've ever seen, if not THE most detailed. It is such a great minifigure with a perfect color scheme and appropriate red vine pieces sprouting from his back and hand. Miles Morales is a good minifigure too, and is essentially a re-color of the traditional spider-man minifigure. I really like the eyes of this figure because they have two colors in them; white and a hint of blue. Finally, the SHIELD officer minifigure is cool, but not really a reason to buy this set. I like the printing on his torso, but I feel as if the face is not perfect for this character. Overall, I just love this set. It has a great value and is full of amazing minifigures. I hope you liked my review and it was helpful to you!"
"This set is one of the best ones you can get for it's price range of $20. It is simply amazing, including 3 minifigures, two "ships" and lots of minifigure accessories. First of all, I think that the minifigures are the best part of the set. The Sakaaran minifigure is also in the other 2 Guardians Of The Galaxy sets, but it is a good army builder and has very fine details. The Nova Officer, who is exclusive to the set, also has very excellent torso details and a very nice helmet mould. Star-Lord is the best minifigure in the set, in my opinion, because of his newly-moulded helmet AND gun pieces, not to mention that this minifigure is exclusive as well. The first ship in this set, the "Necrocraft" is small but really adds to the set. I really like the design of it because it is like nothing else I'd ever seen before, Lego or not Lego. It has a really nice color scheme, and a roomy cockpit for the Sakaaran to sit in. The design is especially unique due to the front-facing thin wings and forward-opening cockpit, as well as the overall shape of the craft. The second craft, named the "Starblaster" is also very nice. Similar to the Necrocraft, this design is also very unique with the shape and color scheme of the vehicle. I personally like the Necrocraft better, but this one is really just as cool. The squid-like structure gives it the ability to open and close the winglets of the back of it, giving the illusion on whether it's flying or landing. It, like the Necrocraft, has lots of legroom for the pilot flying the ship, but the cockpit is kind of bland. But, since it looks so good on the outside, I think that small problem is made up for. My only other complaint is that there are 7 stickers on this one ship, with the other one having 3. In my opinion, a set at this size and price shouldn't have that many stickers, but they do add to the look of the ships. the last thing I want to briefly talk about is the minifigure accessories. I usually don't talk about this in my other reviews, but I feel like this set deserves it. The accessories include a helmet for the Nova officer, A helmet for Star-lord, handcuffs, a hood, two transparent yellow 1x1x2 cylinder pieces portraying Star-lord's rockets, two small blaster pistols and one bigger blaster rifle. Did I mention the all-important Orb? All told I think this is a great set for all ages. With the easy-to-build structure and awesome minifigs, this is a must-have for any Guardians Of The Galaxy fan."
"This set really exceeded my expectations. First of all, the cost of the set is a little high, but I think it is still worth it because of what it has to offer. The minifigures: The minifigs have to be the best part of the set. It includes Batman, Aquaman, Black Manta, and "Scuba" Robin. I was really glad to get Aquaman because unfortunately I missed out on getting him when he first came out. Batman is a really nice figure, but my only complaint is that because of the black head piece, the printed facial expressing is very pale. The other side of his head, however, had his diving gear, which looks very cool. Scuba robin is a well-designed figure, and I like that LEGO chose to make the flippers plastic instead of rubber. The Black Manta figure is absolutely amazing. Exclusive to this set, he has excellent torso printing and a really good-looking head piece, with no minifig head underneath. Other than Batman's face being pale, I think these minifigures are absolutely phenomenal. Under-water Structure: This unusual structure is, I'm guessing, part of Atlantis. I could be wrong, but let's get into the build itself. It is intended to hold scuba Robin captive, dangling from the crest of the building. Of course, this involves a play feature. When hit, the top of the building falls back, freeing Robin from his unlikely prison. There is also a locking feature, so it is not falling over constantly. Overall it is a nice build and contributes greatly to the underwater-themed set. The Bat-Sub: The Bat-Sub is, I have to say, weird. Though being weird, it makes sense that Batman would have it because, let's admit it, he has everything. It has two flick-fire missiles and a detachable underwater scooter for Robin. I think the strongest thing about it is that it looks really good and is great for play value. Finally, the Manta Sub Black Manta's submarine is the highlight of this set (Except for the minifigs, of course!) It is highly detailed and has very vibrant shades of red and orange on it. i really like the design of the ship because of the Manta-ray like wings of either side. it has two stud-shooter missiles of the front and contains glow in the dark pieces. Additionally, there is lots of space in the cockpit for minifigures to sit in. Last, and possibly least, the Robo-Shark. When I say least for this guy, I don't mean it's bad. It is actually a quite cool idea and had a somewhat play feature. On the shark's sides, there are two more missiles that can be loaded into the stud-shooters on Black Manta's sub. overall another good thing about this set. In conclusion, I'd say that this is one of the best DC lego set I have ever purchased. With great minifigures, great builds, and amazing play features, this is a must-have for any DC fan."
"To start this review off, I'd like to say that this set is simply amazing. When I first saw pictures of this set, i knew that I just HAD to buy it. It comes with one (Or two, based on what the skeleton is classified as) minifigure and 1 character. The skeleton is exactly like the ones in other sets, but I am glad it was included in the set. The Super Angry Kitty figure is also nice, with detailed printing to show just how angry she is. Obviously all Unikitty figures are built with bricks, so this one is built the same as most other ones. now, the Batman minifgure is the best figure in this set and my personal favorite part. It uses the same torso, legs, cape, and cowl as lots of other older Batman minifigures but the face is different. VERY different. Instead of using the regular "white headband" for Batman to portray the eyes through the cowl, the figure uses a black head band with printed eyes on it. "How genius is that?" I found myself asking as I examined the figure. It is so simple but adds so much expression and mood to the overall figure, making it the best figure in the set. On a side note, he even comes with the grappling hook replicated from the movie. Absolutely phenomenal! The last part of the set is the actual brick-built structure; the Micro Manager. This is pretty cool, and for a cheap price I really can't complain. It is actually quite similar to other Micro Managers LEGO has made, but I don't mind because it still has some good play features. For example, the arms have lots of articulation ability and there are some added flick fire missiles. The most interesting part of this guy is that the top part can "explode" off of him, making it look like Super Angry Kitty has defeated him. Well, I have to say that this set is a 5-star set. I don't usually give five stars on every category, but I feel that this set deserves it fully. With a super low price point, lots of younger kids can get their hands on this set. Overall, this a great playlet and has some amazing minifigures. Thank you, LEGO!"
"When I first saw pictures of the LEGO Jurassic World line, this is the first I wanted. Now, thanks to quite a bit of money (Which we'll get to later) I finally got it! First of all, the mini figures in this set are AMAZING. Three included, Claire, Owen and a random ACU trooper. Owen, the main character (Or one of them) is very important to the entire line. A highly detailed minifigure as well. Lastly, the face is the same as Star-Lord's (Which obviously makes sense because they are played by the same actor.) Claire, once again, is a very detailed figure. I really like the use of the hair piece on her, as well as the printed belt on the legs. Overall another excellent minifgure. finally, you also get an ACU minifigure. Another amazing minifg, though I am let down by the fact that all of the torso printing has to be covered up! Anyway, it is an excellently printed figure, especially for a random trooper. His face is Lex Luthor's (Or Bruce Wayne's) and I think it is a good choice for the figure. Now let's get on to the raptors. These are positively phenomenal. They use the same mould as the LEGO Dino series back in 2012. These guys (Or girls, I should say) have amazing printing on all of their pieces. They even have their own little camera setups on their heads. I specifically like Blue because of the blue prints on her head. Now, we get to the final part of the set: the Vet Unit. I have to say, I really liked the build of the truck, but no interesting techniques were used. My only complaint about this truck is the use of many stickers. I understand why they are used, but I still think LEGO could have used a bit less. Inside the cab there is only one seat, despite the large size. On the other hand, the room or base on the back of the truck is quite small on the inside, but can still hold 2 minifigures. There are 2 easily removable computers, and there is enough space to hold the assembled turret. The turret itself can either be positioned on the top of the truck or stored in the back to be deployed onto the ground. Last thing for this is that it can be completely removed from the truck. Overall a very sturdy build and good look for this vehicle. Finally, the cons of the set. I only have a few complaints, but some are bigger than others. You already have read by now that there is an excessive use of stickers in the set, but the set also includes 2 large printed dinosaurs, which...kinda...makes up for it. I guess the back section is a little small, but making it bigger would mean more money to buy the set-and we don't need that. This set, I feel, is overpriced. Upon first glance I thought this set would be about $10 less than it actually is. I hesitated when buying it, because I know there are better values for LEGO out there. But, overall I am very happy that I did. Thank you for reading my review! I apologize that it is a little long, but this set really deserves it. I hope this was helpful!"
