BEST PRESENT EVER!!!
" OK so that quote is from Ninjago: Legacy and is kind of relatable, since I got it for my b-day a few days ago. Although this is definitely not the best present I've ever gotten, it was probably the best thing I got for my b-day this year. ANYWAY, on to the review. The minifinger selection (yes I like brickitect) are probably the worst part of the set. None of them are bad, but the selection is a little weak. You get Kai, who I now have 3 in his Legacy suit, Cole, who I didn't have before, and two Stone Warriors, which are both good, and now I have 3 of them. Kai and Cole also happen to be first and second favorite of the Ninja, so that helps it out a little. The Earth Driller itself is much bigger than I thought, and I love it. When you push it along, the drill twists (both pieces in opposite directions), which is a really great function. There is also a well-integrated knob in the back of the vehicle that you can twist to turn the drill if you want to do that while the vehicle stands still, which is a really nice feature and kind of makes it 2 functions in one. The cockpit can fit 2 figures, which is better than the original with one, but in the show, it could fit up to 8 people, which I guess now it's a little better. There are also a bunch of stickered tiles inside with small details. The windshield is a really awesome (maybe) new mold that is printed with earth-like designs. There is sand green scattered about, and I like how it keeps the rock-like theme that most of Cole's previous vehicles have. There are stud shooters, which are just stud shooters, but that adds a little playability to the set. Also, there are clips on the back of it where you can store your weapons, which I appreciate. The Stone Warrior is good, but not as big as I thought. The legs have the normal minifigure posability, but the arms are on ball joints so you can move them more. There are big katanas you can attach to its arms, which adds some playability as you can kind of slash them down. There are a lot of stickers on the chest and legs which I don't like, but then again, almost every modern Lego set comes with stickers so it isn't that big of a deal. The helmet is designed well and there is some good part usage, and I LOVE the face print on the face of the Stone Warrior. There some exposed studs and colors on the model however, and it would be pretty easy to fix some of them. Lastly, I don't like the Scythe of Quakes' new design and is the only Golden Weapon that got downgraded IMO. I don't have any cons about this set, just nitpicks. Overall, I would totally recommend it. 10/10 "

BEST LEGO DRAGON!!!
" This set is awesome. To start off, the minifigure selection is honestly the worst part of the set. It isn't bad, but there are no exclusive ones. Kai is my favorite ninja, and it's nice to get a second Hunted variant of him. Cole is actually my second favorite, and he is the last one I needed to have all of the ninja from Season 9. I already have all the Dragon Hunters in this set except Arkade, and he is pretty cool. I love the piece that goes over his belly, and the shield piece he has a weapon. There is a small stand for the helmet and the shield, and Kai also has the Dragonbone Blade, which means that this set comes with all the Dragon Armor except the shoulder thing, and that's a little disappointing. However, counting this set I have at least 2 of each piece of dragon armor, which makes it better. The Dragon Hunter helicopter is very unconventional and Mad Max-y, and I love it. The cockpit door thingy is designed pretty well, and I also like the landing gear. There are stud shooters and clips to hold weapons on either side, which are both nice additions. The blades for the propellers are titled forward, and there is a gear connected to it that you twist to spin the rotors, which is a nice function. There is a small propeller at the back made out of tooth pieces (nice part usage there) and a tail with a sticker on it. Now, onto the dragon. She is much bigger than I ever expected, and it's so awesome. Her head is pretty good with an opening jaw, but the eyes are actually printed pieces, which is great. The horns are cool, and give her a bit of personality. The neck is made up of ball joints, which makes it pretty posable. The legs are designed well and use socket joints and ball joints which makes for a lot of posability. The wings are made of the felt stuff which I appreciate, and you can push down two Technic levers with your thumb in the middle of the dragon, and the wings flap. I literally played with this function for almost 5 minutes straight, it's that fun. She has a whipping tail, which isn't a new function, but it's good. However, the last bit of the tale is actually on a ball joint, allowing a little more posability. Overall, the best LEGO dragon to date. However, apparently Kai is riding the Firstbourne, but in the show, only Faith and Wu have ridden her. At least Faith is included in the set. The second best aspect of this set though, is the price. Just $70 for almost 900 pieces, 6 minifgs, a nice helicopter and an amazing dragon is great, and I was able to get this set for 20% off at $55. What an incredible deal. Again, beautiful dragon, beautiful helicopter, good minifigs. I don't have any complaints with this set except that it comes with only 3 out of the 4 pieces of dragon armor, but that's something minor. 10/10 "

Ninja-GOOOOOO!!!!!!
" My friend has been able to collect all the different kinds of Ninjago spinners except the 2019 ones (2011-2012 spinners, 2015 flyers, 2018 spinners and 2018 flyers), and my favorites are the originals, and then these ones. I'm not a fan of the ripcord powered ones (save the Airjitzu's) and the original 2011 ones are too hard to come by sealed, so when the pictures of the Spinjitzu pieces leaked, I was satisfied. They're the most show-accurate spinners yet, and probably the most playable. There are 3 different attachments you can clip onto your spinner, which are defense, attack and speed. The speed ones feel really filler, because if you spin the spinner without any attachments, it goes faster than 'speed' mode and looks a lot cleaner. Attack mode looks cool as you're spinning it, but if you put your finger 3 inches away from the spinner it will fall over. Also, I tried battling two of them with both speed modes attached and if one hits another, it just makes itself fall over. Defense is by far the best mode. It looks the best while spinning, and if one spinner hits another with the attachments on, it actually knocks over the other one, unlike the other two. When I went to Walmart to buy Cole's spinner, they didn't have it, so even though I already have Zane's Legacy suit, I bought this one. His accessory is a silver katana, which is probably the easiest weapon to get in the entirety of Ninjago. However, it's impossible to spin the spinner with it in his hand. This is one of the first Lego sets I've bought at full price, and I regret doing so. It would've been better if they put 2 kinds of attachments in and made it $5, or just made it $7 or $8 instead. Still, it's a new take on the spinners, and might be the best yet. 7/10 "

Not bad, just overrated.
" This set isn't bad, just a little overrated. It definately does not deserve 5 whole stars. The minifigures are the reason you get it, particularly the Overlord. Although he isn't very show-accurate, he is very menacing looking and I love all the details. I just wish there was a molded Golden Armor piece, but that would be a bit too picky for a $20 set. Golden Lloyd is also really good, just not as good as the Overlord. The stone scout is nothing too exciting, expect the new green facial details. The Golden Dragon itself is probably the weaker part of the set. The white saddle just doesn't look good (I would've preferred black) and the tail is really bland. But the worst part of it are the feet. Due to a bad toe design, it takes forever to make the dragon stand up. One time it even took me 5 minutes just to stand it up. Overall, this set is good. The minifigures are the reason you buy it, but the bad toe design is something so small that impacts the set by a lot. I would recommend it for 20% off or cheaper. "

Not bad
" This set is overall pretty good. The minifigure selection is fine. Kai is my current favorite Ninja, and his Legacy suit is pretty cool. I also love the new masks. This is the cheapest way to get Zane besides the spinners, and I like his Legacy suit more than Kai's. The Serpentine figures are ok, and I like Spitta's head mold. However, Lasha's face looks really deformed and ugly, and he is definetely the worst minifigure of the wave. Kai's Blade Cycle is pretty good, and I like the flame stickers at the front. There is a black Technic bit in the middle that you push, and four small parts of it come out. It's a good function, and much better than the original. There are 8 golden katanas on the bike which look a little strange to me. Zane's Snowmobile is easily the best part of the set. It is a total upgrade from the original in every way. I like the kind of tread piece at the front, and since it's kind of loose you can angle the bike a little bit. There are clips at the side to hold the Shurikens of Ice which is much appreciated, and right behind those is a blue brick in which you push down to launch a stud. This is a great function, and this is my favorite bike in my collection. While the sidebuilds use good pieces, they aren't anything special. Overall this is a good set. Not great, but good. 8/10 "

BEST SET IN MY COLLECTION
" I got this set for Christmas about 2 weeks ago, and I haven't been able to write a review on it till now. This is by far the best set in my collection, and I love it. The minifinger selection is pretty good, and I like the Mad Max vibe it gives. The set also has a lot of functions and is possibly the most playable LEGO set of 2018. Overall the Dieselnaut is really good and the best set in my collection of mostly Ninjago. 11/10 "

It's hard not to give it 4stars
" I got this set for 45% off on Amazon over a week ago, and I love it. I would've given it only 4 stars because I have some cons about it, but it just so nice and I wouldn't be able to that
The minifigure selection is pretty good. It is the cheapest way to get Jay, Zane and Muzzle, and they are all extremely detailed. Daddy No Legs is pretty good too, but not as good as I would've liked. You can't take him off his mechanical legs like he could in the show, and whenever I try to stand him up his legs usually slowly start falling over. Overall, a pretty good minifig selection.
The Stormbringer Dragon itself is actually my first Lego dragon, and I am really impressed. The whipping tail function is much better than I expected it to be, and the blue and orangish-yellowish color blends well. I also like how detailed the body is. The wings are honestly kind of wimpy, but they aren't bad. The saddle can be detached by clips and not studs, and it can fit 1 minifigure. Probably the worst part of the dragon is the head and neck. They are connected to each other by bricks and I don't like that, as it doesn't allow for much posability. The legs are good, and they are connected to feet which are a single mold connected by ball joints. Overall, while it isn't the best dragon, it's pretty great.
Overall, this is my 3rd favorite set I've picked up since I started recollecting Lego back in about February of this year. I like everything about it, and I would recommend it to you if you like dragons and don't mind the cons. "

Better than I expected
" This is my first Oni and Dragon Realm set, and while it's not entirely show accurate, it's an overall good set.
The minifigure selection is ok. While neither of them are exclusive, this set is by far the cheapest way to get them.
First up is Kai. He is (currently) my favorite Ninja, and his Hunted suit looks really cool, as it's pretty dang war-torn and it looks like he just came out of a battle. Jet Jack is an ok character, but I'd much rather have Faith in minifig form, and I think this set would be the perfect one to have her. Oh well. Jet Jack is pretty detailed, and she is probably my second favorite Dragon Hunter, after Heavy Metal, of course. Her jet pack is a pretty good design, and is definately better than I can do.
There is a small side build, which is a nice little stand for the Dragonbone Blade. I would've appreciated a different piece of the Golden Armor, because the Dragonbone Blade comes in literally all the other First Realm sets.
The Destiny's Wing itself is pretty good. First, you have the cockpit, which uses a pretty common windshield piece. The fan on the front looks a little weird but good at the same time. There is an adjustable flag at the end of the plane, which I wish had a sticker. It just looks so bare without one. The tails are pieces that I've seen before but not owned. The sticker on them is nice, but I messed up putting one of them on and decided to just rip it off. There is a part used for the engine that is one of the engine tops they use on the front of cars. There are barrels used as exhaust pipes, which is a good design. The wings are really long and look a little big on a small set. They're a little bit flimsy because they only use Technic pins to connect to the main body, which I'm not a fan of. There are stud shooters and spring loaded shooters, which is quite a bit for a $20 set. Now, there is something I want to talk about here. When the Dragon Hunters captured the Ninja, they took the jet the Ninja were building out of the remains of the Destiny's Bounty and copied that design, but modified the wings a bit. They didn't even get to use it. I wish they would've used the wings the Dragon Hunters used. Also, the red and black color scheme is off. In the show it was olive, orange, black and gray. I guess they just wanted to use it as a vehicle for Kai. Overall, while this set isn't entirely show accurate, it's pretty good. I had some fun playing with it, but I would much rather prefer the Throne Room Showdown, even though it never even happened in the show. "
