Nice start into this theme
" This actually is my first set in this theme, and it's great! It's convinced me to get at least one more set from this theme.
Minifigures:
Agent Max Burns: A fantastic figure. I love his head print, and the way it's double-sided. He's got a happy, grinning face and a stern face on the other. His torso has not much back-printing, but that's fine! It's a nice suit that you can use to make your own figures if you want.
Adam Acid: The best minifigure of this set. He's got a transparent green face with yellow on part of it, symbolizing his melted human half. His torso has amazing printing with acid burns and a lime hand.
The Build:
This was a pretty simple build, but it does not lack in function. One point I have with this is the rope portion of the build. It was very tricky to tie it and took me a few minutes.
Finished Model: This build has many play features. One of note is the transforming function. This allows you to remove the bottom portion of the vehicle and use the top portion as a boat. It also has the newish stud shooters. They work fine, but be careful not to lose the stud ammo. The vehicle also has a winch function to grab the stolen materials from Adam Acid.
In conclusion, this is an excellent build to start out in the Ultra Agents theme. The rope was a bit difficult to get on, though. Thank you for listening to my opinion on this set. "

An excellent Mobile Base
" This is a very well done mobile base. I will go over the main points of the set down below.
Minifigures:
This set comes with three minifigures, two arctic explorers and one truck driver. The explorers are the same as some that appear in other Arctic Exploration sets, but is a good addition none the less. The moulding on the parka hoods is excellent in my opinion, and looks great. The truck driver is the highlight of this set, being exclusive. The truck driver has very nice torso printing and in general is a nice addition to the set.
Now on to the build itself:
It was a good build, did not get too boring. Nothing very exciting here, though there's some nice SNOT (studs not on top) in the front. The front half of the Mobile Base is the truck portion, and is where the truck driver will be. This portion also has a storage area for tools needed for exploration. Notably, this section came with a small vehicle, which you can use to carry around icy boulders. The back section is where the majority of play will occur. The back section opens up and is available to play inside. It contains a microscope with a scanner, a heating area and some nice coffee. You can have fun with the minifigures by analyzing crystals.
Overall, this is an excellent set. With three minifigures, and two excellent halves, this Mobile Base is not one you want to miss out on. "

Time to go Mining!
" A very nice set for your run-of-the-mill Minecrafter or any fan of Lego.
I'll start with the Minifigures included:
Steve:
He's got the new square head, like all the other Minecraft figures. Not too much detail on this guy, like in the games, but he looks pretty sweet. He has a Pickaxe as an accessory.
Zombie:
Same square head but in a green shade. Looks like Steve but he has the green shading where the flesh colors would be.
Spider:
An interesting figure, it must be built out of bricks. The legs are pretty posable so it can hang on any surface with bricks.
Now, I will tell you about the build:
It's a small set, so it's not going to take you too long to build, but it's a good build. You build a lava and water portion of the cave then you build the upper level and the grassy area. The ores here are well done, but may be troubling to builders with a small hand. Many of the blocks can be pulled off and removed and the instructions even give ways to rebuild portions of the set, which I liked a lot. This set comes with TNT, Iron, Coal, Gold, and Redstone Ores as the main blocks. There are torches and a chest with some bread in the upper area, with ladders to get there.
In conclusion, this is a great set. With many play features and with the price right, this is an excellent set for Minecrafters or a fan of Lego to display and play with. "
