"The box the set came in was BIG. I did not expect the build to be so detailed and extensive. This is not a set for a beginner. The amount of pieces and the instructions not stating exactly where each piece goes can be overwhelming. The complete build took me about seven (7) days - working on it in the evenings after work for about four (4) hours a day. There were so many pieces that it was blinding. When I was done, I was tired yet happy to see the finished product.
I could comment on the cost being high but in comparison to the piece count, it was very reasonable. I do have both sets so they can be joined together. I was fortunate to get them both before they were reitred. Very satisfied."
"Let me start by stating that I am not a true Ninjago fan but do enjoy building the sets. This one was no different. It took a little longer than I anticipated but that could be a good thing (not an easy build). I really like the new design that enables the swords to be held in the hands without needing to be connected. There were not many 1x1 pieces which made the build go faster. The end result resembled the photo no the box exactly. I look forward to the next set."
