"The set is super fast to assemble. The instruction book came in a sealed bag with cardboard backing. The set doesn't have a lot of playability, but it does have some good parts. The minifigs are nice, Barbossa and Skeleton Barbossa were way better than I thought they'd be. Skeleton Barbossa has one of the best skeleton faces so far. Jack comes with a double sided face. One of Jack, and one of skeleton Jack, which looks good. Lots of gold. A bunch of 1x1 round gold bricks, but also a gold goblet, 8 gold coins, and the new gold bars. They are so much nicer looking then the old gold bars. The price is a little high, but still a good set."
"The Vicious Viper looks and acts mean. Goes straight, but tends to flip and crash more than the others. The Tiny Turbos go the best on a smooth tiled or hardwood floor (This is the best for this set). Short carpeting work good, thicker carpeting just causes them to tumble (flips and crashes a lot). Outside on concrete works good, but your vehicles will get scratched and damaged very quickly (runs well, but lots of damage, scratches etc)."
"The Sting Striker is the best looking of the theme. It goes straight and is fairly fast. It was the most fun to put together of the four. The Tiny Turbos go the best on a smooth tiled or hardwood floor (great for this set). Short carpeting work good, thicker carpeting just causes them to tumble (it does better than the others). Outside on concrete works good, but your vehicles will get scratched and damaged very quickly (most damage done of all the others)."
"The Stroming Enforcer is the fastest of the theme. Very light weight, and very fast. Holds up to impacts fairly well but tends to go off course.

Outside on concrete works good, but your vehicles will get scratched and damaged very quickly (least damaged of all the sets)."
"The Dragon Dueler is the best of the theme. It's stable, goes straight, and stands up to impacts. It is a little heavier then the others, but makes up for it in consistently going straight.

"The set goes together easy, total build time was less than a half an hour. The set comes in three numbered bags for easy sorting and quick building. The instructions were not in their own bag like in other sets. They didn't come in the best of shape. The minifigs in this set really stand out. Jack with the painted eyes is unlike any other Jack in the theme. Will Turner look just like Will turner, he comes with a sword and the new scabbard to put it in. The cannibals each have a unique face with different legs and torsos covered with skulls and bones. The roasting spit for Jack was a great idea. I was like, why didn't I think of that. The thrown looks good and I was pleased to see the back tile of the thrown was printed and not a sticker. The bone cage looks and works good, but should have been larger. The set comes with a ton of bones and skulls. The new style backpack, weapons, chains etc. All in all a good set."
"It took about an hour to assemble. The set is divided into six different numbered bags. Less sorting, and more building. Even younger builders wont have a problem with this one. The set does have some interesting building methods. The tower is designed to fall apart. The minifigs have a ton of detail and look great. The mermaids have a brand new bottom to them that allow them to stand and be connected to other Lego, which wasn't the case in the past. The buildings can either be connected, or stand on their own. There are lots of things to do with this set. There are stairs to climb, places to hide. Boats to escape in. Nets to capture Jack, mermaids or anyone else. The tower explodes and falls apart which is a cool feature, but is sometimes a problem when just moving the set. Lego did a nice job capturing the look of Pirates of the Caribbean. Not only does the set itself have lots of playability, but the extras that are included really add to it as well. Two of the new sword scabbards, new style of gold coins, two of Jack's compasses, two bottles of rum, two new style buckets, two nets, two rare black rowboats, swords and more."
"The set went together very fast, only 15 minutes. The instructions and poster come in a protective bag so they don't get damaged.
The minifigs are nicely detailed, both Blackbeard and Barbossa have different print on them from other sets. If you don't have one yet, you'll get a map and Jack's compass. The fountain was fun putting it together. The trans blue bricks really look good. There's a new dark green bottom half of a boulder used. Over all the fountain is a nice piece. The waterfall looks good but doesn't have a lot of playability. It has the new corrugated 2x2 round bricks. Some people will be buying this set for those alone. The water itself was disappointing. It's just a sheet of plastic that hangs on two hooks. The minifigs cant walk through it without lifting the whole thing up. Something different should have been done. At 16 cents a brick, this set is higher priced then normal."
"This set is all about bricks, and minifigs of course. Jack Sparrow is well detailed, front and back. The Henchmen has one of the best faces in the the theme. The captain comes with the new sheath to hold his sword. The globe is amazing and worth the purchase. You get two ships in a bottle which hasn't been done before. There is a round plate/map that looks very cool. Jack has his famous compass (comes with two). You get three long bones from the Ninja theme. Lots of telescopes/peg legs/torch pieces. All around good set for pieces."
"This sort and store minifig head is much larger than you'd guess at 12 inches. It makes for a nice display item in any Lego room. It's sturdy, made of tough plastic (not to thin).
It's made up of five pieces. The bottom, two grids and a two part lid. The grids that the bricks pass through are two different sizes. The second one just a little smaller than the first. Before you start, take out all large pieces, wheels, big plates etc. In small quantity's, place the bricks on the top grid and gently shake the sorter side to side. Remove big pieces from the top and repeat. If the second grid gets full, empty that and repeat until your out of bricks. There isn't a lot of difference in the bricks that stay behind on top of the two grids. But the ones that make it to the bottom are the smallest of bricks. When sorting bricks, I place the large bricks in one bag, the bricks from on top of the two grids in another, and the ones off the bottom in a third bag. Helps for later when your further sorting and storing. This works good for small quantities of bricks."
