"To put simply, everything about this set is amazing to me. The build is very well done and have so much room for minifigs and playability, and it's very well done how you can remove all the ship chunks and make a full pirate ship. The minifig selection is incredible as about half of theme are exclusive in some way, and they all look good. The value is extremely good. The build is larger than it seems on the box, and it has an incredibly high number of large pieces that it feels like it could've been much more expensive than it is. The only small issue is that I feel it could be a bit easier to remove the chunks of the ship and rebuilt it to a ship and vice versa. But other than that small thing, this set is incredible, and I recommend it if you can get it over anything available right now"
"This set is pretty darn good. It has a very impressive design with standout colors, many plastic flaps and the cape, and a hefty size and weight. The mini mech for the bulls is good, and has enough playability for the size. The building portion is nice for the size, but I would prefer if it was bigger. The small portion of the mountain is effective, and the same can be said for the cloud portion for the Monkey King. The minifigure selection is fine. None are exclusive, but it is a good selection for what's there. The value is fine to me. Many of the pieces are on the smaller side, but it is also balanced out by the size of the build, all the flags and cape, and the overall amount of stuff here. There is one major issue with the set though, and that is the playability of the Warrior Mech. It has a bit of a weak balance when trying to pose it, which messes up some positions people might want. There are also some flimsy areas on the build, particularly in the middle and the flags on the back, which can fall off pretty easily. Overall my recommendation depends on whether you prefer to display or play with your sets. If you prefer to play, it's better to skip this set since the main build has some flimsy areas and a poor balance when making some poses. If you prefer to display, I recommend it since it has a stellar design and an eye-catching appearance"
"Very nice set with plenty of interesting techniques and features. Some techniques were a bit hard for me, but it makes up for it by having a great design, and having a surprising amount of well done play features for the type of set is and the value already being very good as is. If you can get this, I would"
"I'll make this simple. Build: Very good, well detailed, and stands out great. Displayability: Not often you have three ways to display it, on the stand, off the stand, and mounted on the wall, and all work well. Stand: Works well, but I wish we could've been able to change the angle. Otherwise, the only way to change the display angle to lift the entire thing off the stand and turn it. Minifigures: All are well detailed and done well, but it feels like the selection is a bit weak. Value: Pretty good. It's lighter and has less pieces than the Batmobile, but the wing span makes it feel larger and more worth the money. Overall, a very good set, and it's one I recommend if you can get it."
"When the wave for The Island was revealed, this was the least appealing set, and it makes sense why. However, I do feel it's one of the better sets of the subtheme. The Keeper's vehicle is pretty large, which gives it enough spots for minifigures to be placed where needed. The function with the front is effective, although I personally feel it's a bit more stiff than intended. The biggest surprise though is that the sides of it can be dethatched and become smaller vehicles, and they work well together. The design is appropriately tribal and dirtier, and it works well. For Kai's vehicle, it is smaller, but it is still appropriately sized. It's function to split the sides from the body fits well, and is smooth with the transition. It's design is effective, and still allows for features like projectiles. I think the value is pretty solid. Both builds are larger than they appear on the box, and they are rather heavy with plenty of playability. However, there are 2 issues I have with the set. The minifigure selection is fine, but not great. None of them are exclusive, and while all are new for the wave, they can all be found in cheaper and arguably more desirable sets. I also have an issue with the name of the set, since looking at real world vehicles, both of them are closer to Trimarans, which have 3 sections while catamarans have 2 sections. Overall, it's better than expected, but it's not as desirable as other sets. If you have other sets from the theme, there isn't much reason to get this, but if you do get it, I think you will be satisfied with the set"
"Being someone that was born over 35 years after the series began in 1966, I can say that even I like this model. It's accurate to the show and is very unique from other sets. it's also a rather dense build, which makes it a little heavier than you'd expect. The stud shooters are nice play features, and it's cool that they can be removed and replaced with other pieces. The stand makes more displayable, and it's simple but effective. The minifigures are good. They are well detailed and are accurate to the show, albeit it would be better if they had extra detailing. The value is pretty good. It is a rather dense build and the stand adds extra value. Despite all the pros, there is one major thing missing from this set: Robin, the minifigure missing from the set. It's very disappointing that he is not in the set, and it results in the set being less complete. Despite Robin being missing, I feel this is a very good set, and I recommend it if you're interested in it."
"This is a pretty good set. The jet has plenty of unique shapes and the color scheme works very well. The play features of it are well hidden and don't detract from the design. Mo's little board is simple. but it is effective and offers extra play value. The vending machine is a cool inclusion, and it works well. The minifigure selection is good, but not great. None of them are exclusive, but it is the cheapest way for most of them. It also feels like maybe one more minifigure could be included for the villains, not including the spider drone. I think the value is pretty good. There are a lot of pieces for the price, and while plenty are small, there are a fair amount of larger pieces on the build, and the weight of the set feels good for the price. Overall, if you like the set, I recommend it"
Good for the price, but not the best for the price
"This is a cool set, but it's not perfect. The shaping and color scheme is very consistent and works well. The playability is good and rather expected for a set like this. The access to interior sections is very easy, and works well. The value is pretty good. It is a fairly big ship with a good amount of interior space in it. Although it is a fair value, I do think the price is the biggest issue with this set. Because of the price, there had to be compromises on the build, and it results in areas looking anywhere from great to bad. The worst area is the underside of the cockpit, which is chunky due to the placement of stud shooters, and the structure used to keep the build up. Also with the way the windscreen is built, it feels like there is an unusually large gap between the back of it and the body of the shuttle. The minifigure selection is poor. Only 3 in a set like this just feels wrong, especially since they come in better or cheaper sets. Overall, there are plenty of good elements, but there are some major issues stemming from the low price. If you don't have a version of this vehicle, I'd get it for now, but if you do have other versions, it's better to skip this set."
"The build is pretty good. It has plenty of posability for the size, and is fun to play with. The hammer build is good, and I like how it can be used in both hands. The value here is pretty good, like most of the $10 Marvel mechs. The only real issue is the minifigure. All of the prints came in other sets from last year, and the only piece that is the exclusive is the helmet. The mold has appeared in 2017 sets, but in light gray, but it is in light gray in this set. Overall, there isn't much desirability in this set for collectors besides the helmet. If you like the build and minifigure, I'd recommend it. Although if you just want the figure, I'd pass on this set and get the helmet elsewhere."
"This is probably the best terrain set for the entire Ninjago theme. There are multiple areas throughout the build to put the minifigures and play with them. The design is appropriately rocky and demanding, especially with the large face on the front of the build. The play features are very good. Multiple of them are connected to one single gear on the left, and they all work perfectly. The board game mechanic is a good inclusion, and it adds extra playability of the set. The minifigure selection is good, but not great. Only one is exclusive, and most of the others can be found in significantly cheaper sets. However, all of them are good minifigures, and it's nice each minifigure is different from the other minifigures in the set. I think the value is great. It's surprisingly huge when fully built, and the playability is so high that I wouldn't mind paying an extra $30 for it. Overall, This is a great set, and one I highly recommend"
