Stellar minifig pack
" This set is very good. The build isn't based off a prior set, that arguably makes it better. It's well detailed and has plenty of room for imaginative play. But the true highlight of the set is the minifigures. There are 7 in total, and 4 of them are exclusive to this set. All of the exclusive minifigures are very good, especially the Golden Lloyd, and the 3 that aren't exclusive are good. I think the value is great. It has a balanced number of pieces, but the amount of minifigures and accessories are very high for a set like this. The only potential downside is that there isn't too much playability other than imaginative play, but it's not that bad. Overall, I really recommend it. "

Very good set, but a bit poorly priced
" This is probably the best At-At we have ever gotten. It makes great use of the design by including not just space for all of the minifigures included and then some, but also has enough space for a complete Speeder Bike and a turret. It also includes the function for Luke very well. The legs are very posable and allow for multiple poses to be made. The design is very accurate and really consistent, although it is a little odd that the front of the face is completely flat. The minifig selection is good, although there could be about 2 more Snowtroopers included in the set. The only real issue is the price, while I can kind of see where it's from, it feels like a set that should be $130 or $140. Overall, I highly recommend this set, but I would also recommend waiting until a discount is available "

Solid set, but the original is better
" The build is very solid. It has plenty of bulk and detail on it, which makes it good for display. But it also has plenty of playability with the nindroids, the shooters, and the bike launching feature. The minifigures are all good, especially the Golden Cole, which is great. Although there are plenty of pros, there are also some cons to the set. The overall design doesn't feel as unique as the original, and does feel a bit more boxy to me. It does also lack the 2 extra missiles and the ability to turn the spring loaded missiles. The value is a bit iffy to me. It has plenty of pieces and feels weighty, but the overall size feels more like a $40 set to me. Overall, it's a good set, but I would recommend the original over the new one "

One of the largest sets ever made
" This is such a massive model. It is something that demands presence on a shelf, and for good reason. This is a gorgeous build with tons of great details on it. The amount of small pieces used really help to bring everything together. It's a build that looks good from every angle, and is very hard to find flaws. It is also very sturdy, so it doesn't break too easily. Although, just because they are hard to find, that doesn't mean there are flaws. Some plates on the build don't connect to other pieces as well since there aren't as many studs on the surface or underside of them. There are also a few small bits of color inconsistencies, but those aren't too bad. There isn't much playability on it, but it's ok since it's not meant to be playable. The minifigure selection is admittedly a bit lackluster. They aren't bad figures, but it could've been much better. The value here is good. Although the part count is very low for the price, it's a very large and bulky build, to the point that the amount of pieces is irrelevant. Overall, It's a very good set worth getting, but it's just got a few tiny flaws that prevent a perfect 10/10. So now it's a 9.5/10 "

One of the most demanded Ninjago sets ever, and...
" This is a very good dragon. The color scheme is very unique to this set, and it works great. The amount of posability is good for the size, with positions that can be made into a flying mode, and a standing more. But probably the standout portion is the head, which has a new mold used twice. I think the value on this set is very good. It's surprisingly big when it's fully built, and has a lot of parts that stick out. I think one lacking area of the build would be that it doesn't really have any play features besides posability. Something about this set that people might have a problem with is that it done have some inaccuracies to the show, particularly with the chest and color scheme. But I can separate the show version from the official model, since it's not that big of a problem to me. The minifigure selection is admittedly a bit weak. While it makes sense, it feels like there could be just one more exclusive minifigure in the set. Overall, it's a very good set, but not a great one. It's big, posable, and well build, but I do feel it could use some more features and minifigures. Despite those issues I have with the set, I highly recommend it. "

Bigger, Bulkier, Better, but not that different
" The build is very solid for the size. It also proves to be a very straight forward set with what you it. The handle is a great inclusion, but I do feel it could be longer for some people. The shooting function works great and is very unique. But probably the best part of the build is the new Canopy piece, which looks awesome. The side build is a good inclusion, but I feel it could be left out and nothing would change. The minifigures are good enough. Golden Kai is a major draw to the set, and he's a great figure. Although the other figures do come in other sets, they are good inclusions. The value on this set is about expected. One thing that can be a bit of an issue is that it's not that different when compared to the original, but that's not that bad of an issue to me. Overall, It's a solid improvement, but it's not much different from the original. While some more newer additions would be nice, they aren't necessary. "

Good set worth getting, but could be a bit better
" The car is a good build with interesting techniques used to get some of the shaping, particularly for areas on the underside. The ability to change out some of the pieces is good idea, but I don't think there's enough to make it a completely worthy inclusion since one side won't have enough of the pieces to match the other side. The car does feel a bit too long from some positions, but it's not too big of an issue. The new Ghost Rider minifigure is the best part, and he looks great. Spider-Man is really nice with the inclusion of arm printing, although we could've used someone else for a 3rd minifigure. The value is around where people expect for the amount of pieces and how much is included. Overall, It's a set I recommend you pick up, but it could be a little bit better. "

Best Lego Mech of all time? Possibly
" Being a Legacy set, this is pretty different from the original, but I think that's a good thing in this instance. The bigger size allows for much more detail to be put onto the build, and allows for more pieces. With more pieces, it allows for plenty of joints including knees, wrists, foot, and arm joints, making it a very posable build, but also sturdy enough to stay in whatever position you set. It also allows different features that can be added, like having a buzz saw and being able to change the position of the blade. The minifigures are all really good, and it's nice to get Golden Jay in the set. Although one thing that can be an issue with the minifigures is that it feels like there could be more for the price. The value is really good on this set. It feels like a build that would be $70-$80, but to see it below that is great, although like I said, it could use more minifigures. Overall, this is a really good mech. It has plenty of sturdiness and posability, and it also allows for the build to have plenty of positions of display. I highly recommend it to anyone interest it.
