One of the best Lego Minifigure series yet.
" This set of Minifigures is more than welcome in my collection. The figures overall are fantastic. The new parts and prints are wonderful. Each figure has a high amount of detail and more figures this series have double face prints which is nice to see as it gives you more options for play and display alike. In addition I definitely like this series far more than the original Lego movie series Ref: 71004.
The few negatives (nit picks really)
#1 Would have liked to have seen more info on the Wizard of Oz characters on the leaflet included in each bag as I’m unsure if they are part of The LEGO Movie 2 as in the Oz character are in the film or are they a little extra thing added in the movie series. Whichever it doesn’t take away how amazing the figures are.
#2 Would have liked to have seen a metal beard Minifigure based on his brief appearance as a regular Minifigure in the first LEGO Movie.
#3 And finally this is my main problem you’ll notice the bags in which the figures are packaged in are made of a cheaper thinner material which I can only assume is to cut costs. Now when Minifigure blind bags first came out in 2010 they only cost £1.99 GBP and are currently at £2.99 GBP. I understand inflation and what have you. But still with the bag package quality being reduced I think it’s fair to say that the RRP should be reduced to £2.50 GBP. However that slight nit pick aside the whole set of figures is fantastic and I would recommend them they are great for play and for collectors.
*Please note the build time I’ve selected is building each individual Minifigure not the whole set of 20*
Thanks for reading my review I hope it was of some use to you.
Happy Playing, Happy Collecting, and Happy Building "

Bad Value
" I’ll get straight to the point. This set (21147) has a lot going for it. It’s personally my favourite Lego Minecraft set. However I cannot recommend this set whatsoever because the asking price Is simply outrageous. If you can get this set for £60 maximum I think you’ll be more than pleased with it but don’t go over that amount because it’s simply not worth any more than £60.
So here are great things about this set........
[The Build] for a Lego Minecraft set this one was nice and felt easy and simple to put together but simple in a way that was highly enjoyable for example stressful day and you can’t be to heavily focused on a complex build this set is perfect for such an occasion. Doesn’t take long either I think realistically it took me 40 minutes but I said an hour just to be safe.
[Figures] all figures included are great For Minecraft figs anyway only thing about them is new player skins would be nice to get here as well as Steve and Alex especially considering the outrageous price the new silverfish piece is also a great inclusion and you get two of those here.
[Details] this set has some great smaller details like a printed sign a water bucket, spawner and a full collection of all the different ores that can be found in the world of Minecraft.
So overall this set is brilliant in every way bar the price it’s really unfortunate because the set itself is fantastic. I’m disappointed in LEGO for making the price of this one unreasonable and would only buy this set if you can get it for £60 I wouldn’t pay any more than that.
So that’s my review I hope it was of use to you and hope you got all the information you needed.
Thanks for reading and I wish you all the best with your future lego purchases. "

My Favourite Marvel Lego Set
" This set is absolutely fantastic. The build is great, the minifigures are cool the look and design of the thing is incredible. This is easily my favourite Marvel Superheroes Lego set. I got the set for £72 which for that price is an absolute must buy. I have given this set 5/5 but there are some things you should be aware of before making your purchase to me these are small inconveniences rather than a deal breaker but I think they are worth mentioning.
1) Iron spider does NOT have the dual mould legs and NO printing on the sides of the legs to counter this problem.
2) The set has a lot of stickers (which are a pain) the only printed pieces are the whole Pizza piece, the Pizza slices the main circular sanctum window, the small computer keyboard in Peter’s apartment the cash register in the Pizza store and the mobile phone piece. They are the only pieces that are printed excluding the minifigures of course.
3) the set could have done with TWO more things another minifigure that being a Peter Parker figure and the last thing is they should have included a hair piece for Tony Stark/Iron Man if you wanted to take the helmet off completely.
Other than those three minor nitpicks this set is fantastic and like I say is definitely my favourite Marvel Superheroes set.
I’m not complaining about those things I’m just purely stating them so you get an idea of the things that aren’t in the set so you are aware that’s all. And if you do purchase the set I hope you like and enjoy it as much as I do.... I’m sure you will. "

Very Overpriced for What You Get
" This is such an overpriced set at RRP of £44.99. I really liked the look of this one and thought well if I think it’s bad value I’ll say so. So that’s what I’m doing here. The set itself contains 3 minifigures + Dilophosaurus and the baby Dino which, yes is really cute and a nice new piece. The build is really good and the finished product does the job well enough, however the watch tower section isn’t a strong and sturdy build which these days I would expect from LEGO. Instead it is flimsy and not very well designed. I would however add I like the gates and the play feature that comes with them. I also like the construction of the electric fence section which looks very good. I understand that the dinosaur pieces cost more to produce etc. But I can not in any way justify the price for this set. I really wish the set came with a character that was identifiable in the movie and not just three generic minifigures. I would not recommend this set unless it becomes cheaper and I wouldn’t pay any more than £35 for it. I will also add to this review that I feel lego is using the Brexit situation as an excuse to rack in a bigger profit from the UK when they don’t need to. It’s a real shame about the price because the set itself isn’t too bad. I hope my review has been of some use to you. And thank you for reading. "

70909 Is a great set.
" This is a really great set with some brilliant play features with a decent build and looks fantastic when fully assembled. There are two minor problems I have with this set one is the lack of a second villain minifigure I think a second villain would have made all the difference however that does not take away from the fact that the set. and figures included are fantastic. The second issue is I managed to get this set for £90 and I feel that is about right I do think the RRP (£109.99 GBP) is slightly high for this but the set is still really great and I would overall highly recommend it.
