"I got this set for Christmas after months of asking my parents for it, and I could not be happier! Less than 2 hours after I opened the box, the set was built. The instructions are easy to understand, and I had no trouble at all. I LOVE Ashwing so much; she is detailed and beautiful in the most menacing way. Her fully independent claws make a great addition to her look, as well as her fold-able wings, sharp horns, and poisonous color scheme. Cronan looks like the perfect villain, and the small bear habitat is vert quaint and cute. The exploding feature on the crystals is brilliant, and I spent a lot of time just messing around with that! I, as always, am very impressed with the high LEGO quality and can't wait to play with her more! I'm sure she will be a great companion (or enemy, for that matter) to Rosalyn's dragon Sapphire, as I am going to buy her myself soon. I would certainly recommend this to a friend, and I talked it up so much that my niece wants her now! This is by far the best set that I have, and perfect as a stand alone set or an addition to any story."
