Great Accessories for any City
" This set is great value for money (even for the minifigures alone) and comes with great accessories that would look great in any Lego town, not just Ninjago City.
Some highlights of this set include: the great selection of figures, the shop stall and the design of the lampposts.
Whilst most things about this set are great, there are a few flaws:
Firstly, although the Tuk Tuk looks good, it's much lower at the front than at the back and looks poorly designed because of this (see photo). It's easily fixed by added a plate or two above the front wheel, but the fact that it was designed this way is a little strange.
Also, it would've been nice to have a 'normal' expression for the Shop owner (as other reviews have mentioned). Most of the other characters in this set have double-sided heads, but the Shop owner is stuck with a scared expression which limits the playability.
Overall, this set is definitely worth the price you pay and would look great in any City. There's a great selection of minifigures and accessories that any Lego fan will love. "

Great looking build, but very bare interior.
" I purchased this set the day it was released for my LEGO City, as an upgrade from my previous airport (10159 Airport from 2004).
First off, the build is great and although it's not very challenging, it's exciting to see the plane come to life and the use of the big plane pieces (eg. the nose, the wings, the tail etc.) was new to me, though I know there have been a number of planes in the past that use these pieces. There are 4 instruction booklets (2 for the plane, one for the airport, and one for the luggage/fuel/stairs car), 8 numbered bags, and two separate bags with the bigger pieces in. This makes the build very easy to follow.
The completed set is very grand (especially the plane) in scale, and great looking. It's nice to see that a different colour scheme been used for the plane as opposed to the usual red and white or blue and white colours as seen in previous sets.
The plane is HUGE, with a wingspan of around 2 32-wide baseplates (bare this in mind if you want to make a runway). However, despite its huge size, the inside of the plane is very bare. There are 5 seats for the passengers, another one facing backwards which I presume is for the cabin crew (although there isn't a cabin crew minifigure, which would have been a nice addition), and two seats in the cockpit. There's a tiny bathroom at the back of the plane, and a small galley area at the front with a sink and cupboard. There's easily room for a sixth chair in the plane, which I think should have been included, and the space within the plane could've been arranged better to fully optimise the area.
The airport terminal has a very nice modern look, and includes the revolving door, tower, waiting area, security scanner and check in desk with luggage conveyor. Although this sounds like a lot of features, the inside of the terminal is, again, very bare and the space could've been used better. There are only 4 seats in the waiting area, and a lot of the space is taken up by the revolving door. The operational conveyor belt for the luggage is a nice touch, though, and there is a fair bit of playability within.
The service car is a nice addition to this set and gives it more playability. All the trailers (fuel, stairs and luggage) connect together and attach to the service car, which has a really cool "follow me" sign on the back. This is a really nice addition to the set.
Overall, I really like this set because of how it looks and because there's plenty of opportunity for play, but I think a lot more thought could've gone into maximising the space within the plane and the airport. Some more minifigures would have been good, such as a member of the cabin crew, a check-in clerk and a security officer. The value for money is okay with this set, as you do get a lot of big pieces, but the bare interiors are a little disappointing for the price you pay. "
