"I verymuch enjoyed the build for this set. I love the creative use of parts, and the thoughtful way there were connected. There is no other vehicle like this, and the novelty of the design is refreshing.
The minifigs are also fun, and there are plenty of them for the price point. Also plenty of nifty parts."
"I love Nya, she is my favorite character in the Ninjago series. I'm disappointed that unlike the other ninja's vehicles that are primarily their signature color, Nya's vehicle is not dark blue and dark red, but almost entirely black. (Cole's signature color) I can't get why Lego creates whole series of custom colored "girl" sets, but won't make a dark blue vehicle for the girl ninja. Even the last Samurai X set, which I hope was piloted by Pixel, Ninjago Samurai VXL 70625, was mostly black. Designers, please do better. We are already over saturated with black sets from Batman, Cole, Agents, etc.
That being said, I enjoyed the build and it has some decent (black, gray) parts."
"After the February adult build night at the Lego Store, I was lucky enough to put together the store display copy of this set before it went on sale.
Putting together my own copy was just as enjoyable. I love the looks and detail. The model is stunning.
Unfortunately it has very limited poseability--I tried to pose it with the front legs propped up on a wall, but the neck and tail don't have much or any up/down range of motion. The dragon also isn't sturdy enough to play with because little bits keep falling off. Looks great sitting on a shelf, though."
"I wanted this set since I first saw photos from a toy fair. I remembered the fishbowl helmet as having gold Victorian swirls rather than the generic jellyfish squiggles printed on the helmet in the set--a bit of a letdown.
I'm having a hard time trying to build a stand for the set because all the holes on the bottom center are plugged up with pegs and axles. I'm looking forward to seeing how other builders overcome that.
"I didn't expect The Lego Company to every release another Skylor figure, after 70746 Condrai Copter Attack, so I used brick from else where to add the dark red arms, hair, and hood. I'm so glad they released her new uniform as a legit minifigure.
The set has plenty going on for the price point, and I'd recommend it for any Ninjago fan."
"This has nowhere near the level of detail as the Airjitzu Temple, and had I known, I would have gotten other Ninjago Movie sets first.
I love the Shi guardian "dogs." I enjoyed their build, and the eyebrows are articulated in a manner that allows them a great deal of expression.
I like the prints and graphics on the minifigures. I am disappointed that the hair pieces don't work well with the lower portion of the masks, which seems to defeat the purpose of having a two part mask.
I'm disappointed with the structure itself. The frieze detail above the door is well done, but most everything else is constructed of big chunky panels. The bulk of the detail comes from stickers, which I don't like to apply and NEVER age nor wear well.
I could appreciate using big chunky panels to make this sturdy as a pretend play set, but the set isn't sturdy. I have a great deal of difficulty moving the set around without pieces breaking off and the too-delicate booby traps triggering. The roof details and torches clipped on ether side of the interior walkways constantly get knocked off.
I like that the structure has plenty of room for improvement, and look forward to remaking it with more architectural detail."
"I had a great time putting this set together, and once built, kept playing with it. I replaced some of the gray pieces with black, and used an industrial sharpie marker to re-color the tan SNOT piece that the eye-gems slot into. I would have liked to add they triple spotlight arrays that are on the movie version of the Scuttler, but think they will look odd on this scaled down version.
It is displayed lovingly on my shelf, and I intend to keep it around for awhile.
This set relies heavily on stickers. I don't like having to apply the stickers, and the stickers never age nor wear well. I would much rather have printed parts."
"If you have a kid that enjoys pretend play and making habitat for the figures, I'd highly recommend this set.
I had a great time putting this set together. ...and once I put it together I kept going by modifying/expanding the roofs, moving the spikey bits to the bottoms of the branches and adding flowers, removing the black/evil eye elements from the doors, rearranging the rooms, and eventually buying another copy of the set to make bigger two sided houses.
I love the Goblin figures. I would rather they not have mean eyes and evil eye belt buckles, but I still love them. I hope they triumph over the impossibly skinny elf dolls."
