Pretty great addition to my collection
" Wow, this set was good. Lego had made a set similar to this one in 2014 or 2015 I believe, and this one is better by far. The number of new pieces released since then made this car look a lot like the real thing, compared to the other one. I like getting the laptop with the exclusive sticker on it, with the light pole. Having another set of hubcaps is cool too. The price is a bit high, but licensing fees cost a lot, so that could be understandable. The only thing I dislike is that almost all the Speed Champions sets are very sticker-heavy, which makes them a pain considering that most of the bricks are on the smaller side. Stickers could be abandoned in favor of prints. Overall, 9.5/10, I like the build and sturdiness, but a bit heavy on stickers. "

GREAT set, must buy!
" When I first saw this set, I was in love. It looked so great to me. My brother and I saved up our money and we bought it together. The monetary value is GREAT! Compared to the Star Wars UCS Death Star, which has about 500 or so fewer pieces for 450 USD, the Ninjago City (I will abbreviate it to NC later) at 300 USD is of great value. It is, I believe, the third or fourth largest Lego set, and very cheap. I loved this build. It never really got boring or repetitive (except for the many translucent blue tiles), whenever something would get old, a new build would start. I love the design. The first level has a small fish market, an apartment, the small charging area for Sweep the maintenance robot, and a tearoom/small restaurant. I like the canal too. The second level has one thing I don't like. There is an elevated walkway which connects to nothing. There is no barrier to protect your minifigs from going over the edge. I made little fences out of extra parts I had at home, but unless another, similar build like this is made, the walkway is kind of awkward. The second level houses a working ATM (love the function), a small comic shop with references to several Lego themes and the Lego Movie, a crab restaurant with a working cooker, and a movie poster stand. It comes with a few other posters too, which is nice. The floor above that has a department store and an abandoned/under construction area with a cherry tree growing out the window. That adds a nice design aesthetic. The third level has a rotary sushi bar with tables and an interesting puffer fish assembly, along with NC's only bathroom and Misako and Lloyd's apartment.
Now for the minifigs.
Misako is probably my favorite. She has this cute winking face which I really like. Lloyd looks cool too with his high school outfit design. It also comes with his ninja suit! Kai has a funny facial expression. Jay, unfortunately, does not come with a high school outfit, but he has his ninja gi on and a flail. The fisher looks kind of mad/miffed which looks strange. The little boy and girl look pretty nice. Severin Black the crab chef has a disguise hidden where he can moonlight as the sushi chef, which is really clever. Mother Doomsday (??? Why is his name that???) the comic store owner has a Galidor shirt, which was an old Lego theme. Clever. If you look carefully, you can find other references throughout the set. Finally, all the other civilians, the policewoman, and the Shark Army gunner are cool additions. All in all, great set, I like it so much. If you made another similar set that would be really cool!

Sad.
" WARNING! Look at the reviews for this set before buying! I didn't... What this set appears to be is the AT-ST from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, in the scene where the head is blown off and BB-8 is in the middle, piloting it. Overall, aside from the head, the walker appears to be the classic "chicken walker" from Star Wars. It also includes a lift to reach the top of the walker. I like the figures and the lift, but the head... Why is it missing? I know it is supposed to be like the scene, but couldn't Lego have made a detachable head? That would have easily increased the playability. The price is also appalling. 39.99 USD for 370 pieces??? It would have made much more sense to add the head, and maybe a small build too for the same price, or lower the price and keep it. Ugh. Don't even waste your money. I wouldn't even get it with extra VIP points or a gift card. You could have easily done better, Lego. "

Great modular, if not the best
" I am a huge modular fan. I personally like this set a lot and I think it is the best of all modular buildings. I like the 1950s theme compared to the themes of earlier buildings (for example the Detective's Office, which has a 1920s-1930s theme). The bright whites, pinks, and blues make it stand out on a shelf, and I like that. The reason why I rated this 4 stars is that the classic minifigure "smiley" faces have been replaced with normal Lego City style faces. I'm worried that the classic faces will not return to modular buildings.
Overall this set looks great. The first floor is a 1950s era diner with a cool looking kitchen, a well-designed jukebox, and a booth. I like the use of crimson-colored grate/grille pieces as bacon. The second floor is a training room with a boxing ring (square?), a swiveling punching bag, and a weights chair. I appreciate that this was included. The third level is a recording studio. I like the soundproofing on the walls of the recording room and the look of the records.
Overall this was a great set. It will definitely find a place in my city. I recommend this set for everyone. Keep on building! "
