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. "

Decent set
" This set is pretty dang good. The main reason I got this set was for the minifigures. I was about to get the Destiny's Wing, but my sisters suggested getting this instead. So, I ended up buying the Throne Room Showdown.
The minifigures are what most people get this set for, including me. Lloyd is awesome, and much better than the SOG version. His legs were reused from the Battle for Ninjago City set from way back in 2014, but the torso is new, and is extremely detailed. Nya is also better than her SOG version, and even more detailed than Lloyd. Her spear is just a slight upgrade from her S8 one. Then there's Samurai X. It's the same version from the Killow vs. Samurai X set, which I will now definately not be getting. She is, of course, Pixal, who was revealed in S8. Harumi is a great minifigure, and surprisingly her hairpiece is rubber. I didn't like her much in the show until her death, and now I think she's pretty cool. Skylor is second best character IMO (after Kai) so I'm really glad to get her. Unfortunately she is the only exclusive minifig, as Lloyd, Nya and Harumi are all in the Oni Titan, which I don't really like. ANYWAY, her torso is really detailed, and I love her head and hair. The red toolbelt is nice, but the plain yellow legs look out of place. I like the shurikens Overall, this set has one of the best minifig selections I've ever seen.
The throne section of the build is good and really detailed. There is a red carpet looking thing is cool, and there is a little thing you can pull out that has a key and a sai in it, which is a nice little addition. There are 4 flames coming out of 1x1 bricks with [thingies] coming out of them. There are also 4 black katanas and a golden piece that's on Pixal's Samurai helmet. The build next to it is nice, but not as detailed as I'd like it to be. You can push out the wall, which is a good function without any specialized pieces. There is also a peg for Lloyd's sword, and enough room to hold one minifigure. The cell build is pretty good as well, but, again, not as detailed as I'd like it to be. You can pull up the little "door" that has 4 golden katanas, and a lock on the top. There are some little steps and barely enough room for a minifigure to stand. Overall an alright build.
Overall, this set is pretty nice. I would definetely recommend it. It has a really good minifigure selection, and an alright build. There are definetely greater sets, but this one is pretty great. "

AWESOME!!!
" As my first Speed Champions set, this set is amazing. It was the last one on the shelf at my local WalMart, for only 12 bucks. It is also my dream car, so I just had to get this.
The minifigure is probably the worst part of the set. While it's not bad, I don't really like it. He's pretty detailed, but the printing is kind of bad quality.
The rally car itself is awesome. While it is loaded with stickers, which really bug me, they have better quality pictures than prints. I like the spoiler, the back detailing, the interchangable engine, the windshield piece, and lots of other parts. But I love the hubcaps. This is my first Speed Champions set, so I might be a bit overreactive, but I love the idea of actual hubcaps and being able to interchange them. There aren't really any functions, but that doesn't bother me. Although I like Ninjago more than anything, this set is great. Overall, I would definately recommend this set if you don't really care about stickers. "

Alright...
" An alright set. While not the best, it's not half bad. I got it because I kinda like the show, and my friend wanted to see what the set looked like without actually getting it.
Unikitty is a good character to get, as she is the main character of the show.. While not exclusive, she is cool. Square bear is cute and has a funny name. In the show she was brown (in the set she is pink) but that's no big deal. Feebee is really weird. I think she is supposed to be a flower, or something like that. The pink flower piece around her face is interesting. Her head is just too forward, if that makes sense. I also don't really like her design. Square bear has some cookies, a box, and a plate. Feebee has a weird flower garden.
The Cloud Car is ok. Like the name says, it looks sorta like a cloud. It has stud shooters, which IMO is the best part. There are exhaust pipes on the back, which are neat. The wings are pretty cool, and the front has a sun with a creepy head that spins. Undoubtly the best part of the set.
Overall, it's an alright set. When I first got it, I thought it was too girlish, but I've kinda warmed up to it. I would prefer it if A) you really want it or B) you're trying to get all the Unikitty sets. "

Not bad
" This set isn't bad. While it isn't Nexo Knights quality *cough cough* it isn't as good as some of the other Ninjago movie sets I've picked up.
The minifigures are like any other set from the movie: They're great, but you kinda get used to them. This is my first set with Jay, and he looks great. The numchucks are great, and I like them. Takuma is pretty good, but none of his pieces are exclusive. The Hammerhead dude is nice. The head is pretty much my dad's, and the hat thing is nice. One thing I've noticed, however, is that he uses the really popular legs. 5 out of my 6 Shark Army Warriors use these legs. I didn't really notice it until I put all of them next to eachother. His torso isn't as common, but is still easy to get. The Jellyfish is good. He uses those same legs as the Hammerhead, which kinda bugs me. I'm also getting sick of his head. Half of my Shark Army dudes have it. LEGO, you really need to design more pieces for these guys. Getting out of rant mode, the hat thing is AWESOME. It is actually two pieces that each make up a half of it. On the torso, there are tentacles, which look so cool. I'm glad they added little details like that.
Takuma's boat is cool. To be honest, I built bag 3 first, which is the one it comes in. I love all the little lights and strings. You can really only fit one minifigure in it, which is just fine, but if you take out the buckets, you can put in 3. It has a nice feel to it, and it's very light.
The Flying Jelly Sub, the main build, is better than the boat IMO. The cockpit is detailed, and the clear cup is kinda funny. The window/door thing is huge. The white thing behind it looks like it's the wrong color. The fans and oxygen tank things are ok. There are two flick missiles, which actually shoot pretty far. The headlights are ok. The legs are pretty fun, but they got a bit repetitive. The 34 stickers are a nice addition. You can hold the top of the Jelly Sub and spin the legs, which is a nice function. I love the chains, which are translucent orange, and I'm pretty sure they're exclusive. I like dangling them around and holding the sub from them. Overall, it's a pretty solid set, but not as good as the Manta Ray Bomber, which is the same price. If you had to decide between the two, I would recommend the Manta Ray Bomber, unless you really want this set. "

Good, but not great.
" This set is good but not great.
The minifigures are pretty good. Cole is phenomenal. He is my favorite in the show, but least favorite in the movie. His hammer is pretty nice. Shen-Li is awesome. His little bucket build is really creative and cool. The Shark Army dudes aren't as good. The Great White is ok, but I love his face print and the mask thing, which btw, is dual-molded. The other dude is ok. He isn't bad by any means, but is probably the worst figure in the set.
The Manta Ray Bomber itself is pretty cool. The dinghy can easily be removed, which has all these switches and even a cannon. The pantoon things can also be removed easily, although they are not meant to. With those removed, the thing still doesn't look like a manta ray, my favorite animal that I don't own. With everything on, it looks great. It doesn't look at all like a manta ray, but it looks good, and movie accurate, which is what I'm going for. If you pull back on these levers, it shoots spring-loaded missiles, which is a simple but good function. (Quick tip - Don't leave the spring-loaded missiles in their shooters. It weakens the spring, and they don't shoot as far.) The oars are removable, but that's nothing. The wings are not posable, but the end things can flap. The tail is the best place to hold it. It is very flimsy, and I feel like they could've done a better job. It's not gonna fall off, but it's just flimsy. The little bombs are apparently the same colors as Cole, which is something I noticed before purchasing the set. Speaking of which, I got this set for $17 USD, which is a great deal for 341 pieces. It feels like there's something missing. I don't know what it is, but I think this set could've been more than what it is. Overall, it's a good set, but not the best. "
