Solid, Fun, and Unique
" 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. "

Good build, meh minifigure
" 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.

Shockingly great for the price
" 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 "

The best slice of "The Island" Pie
" This is a very good terrain setting. There are plenty of play features throughout, like the trap on the bushes and the space inside of the cave. The cave feels properly rocky and tropical, which works very well. The stone golems are good builds, but they look better combined than separated. The separating of the terrain is helpful for transportation, and is connected seamlessly, although it sometimes feels like a looser connection than it should be. The minifigure selection is good. It could use another exclusive figure, since there is only one, but 3 of them only appear in more expensive sets and one is an army builder figure. As well as all the figures look great. The value here is pretty good. There are a lot of pieces in the set, although the size of the build feels appropriate for the price. Overall, this is a very good set I recommend to people. "

Great minifigure, good build
" This is pretty good mech. There are plenty of poses that can be done, and all the web pieces allow for customization with the minifigure. Speaking of the minifigure, this version of Miles Morales is great. He has dual-molded legs, and some stellar printing. The only issue is that the due to how skinny the legs are, it does change the weight distribution throughout the build, and does allow for less poses. Overall, the minifigure is great, and the build is good, but could be better "

Unnecessary build, but it is a good one
" A mech isn't really something Captain America needs, but this is still a good set. There is plenty or range for posing because of how many joints are in it, and the looks are very fitting. But the 2 standout elements to me are the shield print, which looks very good, and the minifigure, which is good and has an exclusive torso print. Overall, it's not something big you'll miss if you pass on it, but it's good if you get it "

Very fun, unique set
" A lot of Batman sets do feel samey and repetitive, but this set is pretty good and fun. The design is effective and allows for more playability than one might think. The truck portion is unique and well built, and it's very cool that a jet ski was able to be built and stored underneath it. The trailer is a good size and well detailed, and it's cool for a prison cell and storage for a motorcycle was built in as well. The flyer is admittedly a bit of an odd design, but it's cool that it connects to the trailer and stores an ATV inside. The minifigure selection is pretty good. There are 6 minifigures, and 4 of them are exclusive. The 2 minifigures that aren't exclusive are still good. I think the value good here. The amount of pieces is low for the price, but the amount of playability is very high and makes the set feel worth it. For how good the set is, there are 2 I have with the set. The connection between the trailer and the truck feels looser than it should be, and the 2 builds do often disconnect when transporting. The other issue is that the gap between the ground and the bottom of the trailer is too big, but it's not as bad as other sets with this issue. Overall, it's a very good set, and it is one I recommend "

Great Display Car
" I never got any of the Creator Car sets before this one, but I think I chose a good one to start with. The build is very accurate to the real world appearance, and looks great. The color scheme is a stand out element and will attract people to it. The inside is well detailed, although it could use a bit more for the driver section. The ability to customize it is a very cool idea, although personally I think it looks better without most of the additional items. I think the value here is good. There are a lot of small pieces included, but there are also a fair number of large pieces, plus the size and weight feel good for $150. I do with my instructions were a bit better though. I felt some pieces weren't supposed to be there, and some of the part listings in the corners seemed like some printing layers were missing. Luckily they were small issues and I was able to get the car built without any compromises. Overall, this is a very good car build, and I recommend it to people interested in it. "

A good set with a big issue
" The oversized bike trend is pretty prominent in Ninjago, and it is a bit repetitive. This one however, is a pretty good one. The design is unique for the setting and it is cool that the sail can detach from the bike and be it's own flyer. The bike even looks good, and arguably better, without the flyer on it. The flyer itself is a simple build, but it is good and the paper sail is cool. The minifigures are pretty good. Nya is a cool exclusive, and while the other figures aren't exclusive, it is the cheapest set they both appear in. The value is is pretty good. It is a good size for the price, and the sail doesn't detract from it. Despite all of that, there is one issue with the set that does hurt it: It has a weak balance. There isn't a kickstand on the set, and it makes it a bit of a challenge to make it stand up, so it falls over easily. Although it is possible to get it to stand, it is annoying when it falls. Overall, It's a good set, but it the balancing issue is rather annoying to deal with "
