Use the firing super-cooled projectile launcher, hydro-blast rover vehicle and movable capture crane to put those pests on ice, and stop off at the built-in vending machine for a frozen snack when you're done! Includes Infernox lava monster, giant Eruptorr monster with throwing action, and 2 Power Miners minifigures in anti-heat armor. Includes Lavatraz base, Infernox lava monster, giant Eruptorr monster and 2 Power Miners! Pursue lava monsters with the projectile launcher, hydro-blast rover vehicle and movable capture crane!

First Lava power miner's base
" As the title says, it is the first Power Miners set in the new Lava theme that resembles a base, like the Titanium Command Rig and Underground Mining Station before it. Also like the Underground Mining Station, it comes with a small digger truck. This set also seems similar to the Crystal Sweeper in that, at first, it seems very overpriced, but once you play with it a bit, you realize that it was well worth the money spent to buy it.
Enough comparing, let's get to the set itself. I'm going to start with the minifigs, then move on to the small digger, then Lavatraz itself. The minifigures are the same as the ones in the Thunder Driller, Doc and Duke, except now they are in the cool new Lava Suits. Next up is Firax. I just got the Magma Mech a few days before getting Lavatraz, so getting a second Firax might not sound so bad to most, since it's the only duplicate in the Lava sets, but it was for me. He has the same, cool, spiky head that the other lava monsters do, with the same transparent color as Firox From the Thunder Driller. Eruptorr is very much like Geolix and Tremorox before him, except slightly taller (even without the lava spikes, smaller lava horns, etc.) You can pretty much see the differences by looking at pictures of the two side-by-side. It's an awesome figure nonetheless.
So far, this set is like the Thunder Driller, Crystal Sweeper, Titanium Command Rig, and the Underground Mining Station. Wow. Not that it's bad, it's just weird. (The good kind of weird.)
Now on to the digger. Unlike the U.M.S.'s digger, this one is drivable, not remote-control. It has the same holder/digger as the claw catcher, I think. I don't have the claw catcher, so forgive me if I'm wrong. It also has a flick-fire dynamite missile and a water jet that has no water coming out of it. Hopefully you'll have an extra water piece laying around, so it can still look like it's a water cannon. The opening feature is quite cool, but if anything is in it that weighs more than a couple crystals, it will sink back down. Other than that, it's a fun little accessory.
Now to Lavatraz itself. The turret is just a seat with a steering wheel and a Bionicle Thornax Launcher on it, but it shoots the spheres that have been used on many different Bionicles. It also comes off of the base easily, so when moving the set around, it can get annoying. Next, the soda machine. It has a nice little "Cool Drinks" sticker, and it looks a lot like a soda machine, from the front. from the left side, it looks a bit, um... the glass is sticking out, and it looks weird from that side. On the right side, you can see most of the mechanism, and the same thing goes for the back and the roof. The right side could probably have been covered, but I can understand that covering the top or back would break the function. The function is: You put the dollar (or any 1x2 no-stud plate) into the slot, and it drops the soda down into the area where you can take it out. Only once has it not worked for me, and when that happened, the soda machine fell off. This was because I hadn't put it on securely, however, so it was entirely my fault. When you're building it, the "grabbing area" comes off quite a bit, making it a little annoying, but it stays on well when it's done and on the set itself. Overall, an awesome feature. It may also break if you push the dollar in too fast, as I just discovered right now, but holding onto the 1x3 flat plate that is on the right side of the top prevents this. Next, the crane. The cockpit is nice, and the sliding feature works well. Sometimes, when you lower/raise the claw, the claw arm breaks off, but this is a minor issue. The arm is held closed by rubber connectors used on the old "Hockey" sets where you smash their heads down to hit the puck. This makes it hard to grab onto Eruptorr, so a way to manually open the claw would have been nice. Once you actually manage to pick up Eruptorr, it usually holds him nicely as long as you hold the claw closed in one hand. Also, rotating the claw itself and not the arm would have been helpful, as you have to position Eruptorr a certain way to pick him up, so positioning the claw itself would help with that. The two "exploding" walls work well. The cave one works a little better than the jail wall, but that is because it is only held on by 2 studs, while the jail wall is bigger and is held by four. It still works fine, however.
Pros:
-Eruptorr
-Soda Machine
-"Exploding" walls work nicely
-Comes with Doc and Duke in the new armor
-Claw feature is fun
-There is a little warning sign on the jail ( Yay for random humor in Power Miners sets!)
-Very fun to play with (Better if you have more Lava Suit Minifigs and Lava monsters)
Cons:
-A second Firax (Would have been nice to have a fourth small lava monster, but this isn't really that big a deal if you don't have the Magma Mech.)
-Turret falls off easily
-Claw doesn't pick up Eruptorr very well
-Only 2 crystals, and neither of them are really in places you'll see them a lot.
-Nothing for Eruptorr to throw, besides Firax.
Overall, I would definitely recommend that you buy this set!

The separatists' even worse nightmare
" I actually got this set in June, but I didn't really get around to building it until the middle of August. This set has THREE instruction booklets and that isn't very common. I decided to build the drop ship before building the AT-OT first. The republic drop ship took me about two hours to build, and it was pretty basic for me. I like the size of the drop ship but it has a sagging appearance to it once you're done. The AT-OT walker took me a little over one hour to build and I'd say that the only tedious part about building it had to be the legs, but other wise it was an easy build. I chose not to apply any stickers on any of these models, and I suggest anyone else should do the same(they make the vehicles look tacky). Some people complain that the drop ship carrying function doesn't work, and I would like to point out that it works perfectly if you followed the instructions and built it correctly. Also, the drop ship's connection with the AT-OT WILL break if you abusively carry it, so handle it with care and you won't have this problem. I don't exactly know why this set was labeled under the Ultimate Collector Series edition of star wars, but I suppose that if there was only going to be ONE set from the clone wars to be under the Ultimate Collector Series then I guess it ought to be this one. Now for the minifigures. There are two clone pilots, and I can accept that number(there are only to ships to pilot), but what l couldn't tolerate was the minuscule amount of clones included. I've said this once before and I'll say it again: If, you're going to include such a small amount of troopers, at least add a commander or Jedi to make up for it. I think that there should have been at least 10 clones included, since the AT-OT can fit up to 16 minifigures, I think that it's insulting to only include six clone troopers. The little "compartments" that are on the back of the AT-OT to place the guns on are great and give the guns 360 degree movement, I would have expected those to be in the front of the walker also. At the most, this set should be $175(USD) because of the low amount of minifigures and popularity. Overall I give this set three stars, and recommend it only to die hard fans of the CLONE WARS and not to fans of the original saga(you WILL be very disappointed)
PS: To the Lego Company, is it possible to make a set(s) containing jar jar binks, Qui gon jin, Padme Amidala, and the Episode 1 form of Obi-wan kenobi? I missed out on the Episode 1-3 sets that included them. "

good, this is!
" I already owned a Yoda minifigure before I got this keychain ,but I just had to get this one for the kids. This keychain, as with all keychains from Lego, is very durable. I think that the clone wars version of Yoda is so much better than the old movie version, because the last one looked like his eyes were always closed. You probably can't tell by the picture online, but Yoda's head is made of rubber!, and that is amazing. This keychain makes a great gift and I've had it for over a year and it hasn't let me down yet! Get it now! "

Here it is!
" Since I couldn't afford the Venator class republic attack cruiser set, this magnet set was a great way to get chancellor palpatine and I also got to other rare figs, and technically saved $160 not buying the other sets that included them. Remember that time when I said I'd give you a top ten list of the ugliest minifigures ever in the Cad Bane's speeder review? Well if you didn't read that review yet please click the captioning(read all my reviews) under my screen name jediMasteryoda and read my review about Cad Bane's speeder. Now, even if you didn't care to do that, Here it is!
scale: 1=ugliest, 10=ugly, but not as bad as # 1
1)Nute Gunray
2)Cad Bane
3)Emperor Palpatine
4)Chancellor Palpatine
5)Shahan Alama
6)Jabba the hutt
7)Obi wan kenobi(clone wars version)
8)Mace Windu(clone wars version)
9)Count Dooku(clone wars version)
10)Onaconda Farr
Don't get me wrong, I think they are all equally ugly, but the original movie versions of Mace Windu, Count Dooku, and Obi wan kenobi are just fine, it's the clone wars versions that I can't stand! Don't let this list change your opinion about getting this magnet set or any other sets containing minifigures that are on this list. "

good, good
" When it comes to the Clone wars, I'd have to say that this is their best one yet. Since I don't own the old version of the clone turbo tank, I can't compare them, but I assume that they're both similar in many ways. Let me begin by saying that this tank is COLOSSAL in size. No matter how hard you try to imagine its size, nothing can prepare you for its truly massive reality; no picture or magazine can ever display that. This tank's build is not for the faint of heart, there are many different building techniques that offer quite a challenge to a novice and an almost impossible task for a beginner, but that's why this set is my favorite! Most of this tank's features are just cosmetic and in fact, there is only one flick fire missile on the entire tank, but that's no reason not to get it. To give you an idea about the size of the wheels, they're just a little less than three inches in diameter each and they're mainly just blank disks attached to a long pole and surrounded by a big ring turbine, but there are 10 of them, which in my opinion is very impressive. The main chamber of the tank could have been a little bit bigger, but I suppose with such a small amount of minifigures included in this set, that it's the perfect size. The rotating turret on the top is very innovative and true to the cartoon series. All of those dishes and disks look very nice on the tank, even though they don't do anything. The dual cockpits are very nice and can fit extra clones inside if the main chamber isn't enough space for you. If you take out the scout walker and computer center, you can fit up to 8 minifigures inside the middle. The entire tank can "house" a grand total of 12 minifigures, including the one managing the turret on top. I'm glad that the handle was included with the tank, it makes moving the tank very easy. I believe at all sets with 500 pieces and over should have a handle like this. The tank as a whole looks very nice and is quite sturdy, plus has a lot of playability. Now for the minifigures. I would like to start by mentioning, that there should be at least four more minifigures than what's already included. This is the only set currently available that includes Aayla Secura and that makes it a must have. I already had Anakin and Ahsoka, but this is a great way to get them if you don't have them yet. Cad Bane is in about %87 of every single clone wars movie, so he's a nice little addition to this set. Two clone troopers is not in the least bit, acceptable. If you're going to have a $120 set and only include two clones, then I think that they should have included a commander such as Rex, Cody, or Fox. I think 4 clones is acceptable, as in the old version of the tank. The scout walker is exclusive to this set, and I think that it's a great addition. Now, then this complaint is about the website, not the product. I found a few flaws with the description provided online. I actually copied and pasted this from this website:
Includes 7 minifigures: Anakin Skywalker, Ahosoka and Jedi Knight Aayla, Cad Bane, 2 Clone Troopers, and battle droid.
First of all, they spelled Ahsoka incorrectly and second, they said that they would include a battle droid, and there clearly wasn't a battle droid in this set! That's the only reason I gave it a four for value for money!(If you agree with me, give me a helpful vote) Other then that this is an exceptionally marvelous set and I recommend it to anyone at all.
PS: To the Lego Company, is it possible to make a set(s) containing jar jar binks, Qui gon jin, Padme Amidala, and the Episode 1 form of Obi-wan kenobi? I missed out on the Episode 1-3 sets that included them. "

another good keychain
" I already had the C-3PO minifigure and enough keychains to fill up a shopping cart, so I got one of these for a gift. As usual, all keychains make great gifts, and they also go great wherever keys or zipper pulls are present. This C-3PO is the old browner version of C-3PO rather than the newer brighter one, but I think that that's good because they're gonna get dirty anyway. Great minifigure and a great keychain as well, get your own now!

So very amazing
" Wow, all I can say is that this set is amazing. A three level department store with the works. I got this set as soon as I heard it came out, and now i give this review to you as a gift, and i just want to say this beforehand, Short review: Buy this set.
Outside ground floor
The outside is, as always, where this set starts. You sort through the pieces for the tiles and make an extravagant pattern that looks even better than it does in the picture after you finish it. The pattern consists of a few flat studded bricks, drain/grill plates, dark gray, light gray, dark blue and white. There is a mailbox that opens towards the building for the mailman to pick up* and a light post right next to it. The other part of the corner has an ice cream stand with super duper rare and a box that could be used as a trash can or a box for the ice cream man to keep his stuff. The view of the outside into the first floor displays is amazing, you can see the mannequins with what looks like a bride and groom pair of suits or just some fancy outfits as well as the escalator and a display of some hats.
The first floor:
This is the clothing and random other unnamed things. There is, like I said, a mannequin display and hats but there is also a back door to a small outside covered area with a trash can. There is a counter with an old style cash register with the round part that should have the buttons and the lever but the stand has a flaw that is half made up for. The flaw is that the design leaves two studs that minifig cannot stand on but they still sick out and block the minifig from getting close to the stand, plus the fact that it is a high counter so it is hard for the customer and the clerk to reach. The display that causes this though is what half makes up for it because it is diamonds/gems(but you can't really see them).
The second floor:
The second floor is not as cool as the first floor but hey, it's smaller. it is smaller because of the escalator guard that is unnecessarily large and takes up way more space than it should, that ought to be fixed, but the escalators more than make up for that. The cool plates and glasses that, for once do not have a purpose other than display or as pieces finally let you use these for your other houses or people. Other than these and the window that opens, and the awesome (formal form of ward, as in awe, not street use) display of artistry type work on the outside with the flags, there is only one more thing to discuss, another small flaw. The second floor flaw aside from the large railing(that is the third floor flaw, for reference) is that the walkway where the escalator comes off is only two studs wide so a minifig cannot walk there straight, which, along with almost every flaw, seems to largely effect the way this set can be made into a stop motion video set. OH YEAH, I forgot, the escalator, it is so much simpler than it looks and super easy to build and the best part of it, it has SEVEN(7) new 2010 pieces, woo hoo. These new pieces are like the so called "cheese wedge" or rather 1x1x2/3 slopes but it is two long so you don't need to put two together in MO-Cs and have that unattractive split in the middle, this piece will be handy in the future.
The third floor:
This floor has not two, but three displays that are Bouncy balls that are really zamor spheres, a doll house that looks a bit to me like the white and red creator house and a scooter that fits a small minifig perfect. The scooter has a nice thin design that is sleek, simple and fun. The escalator ends here but there is a skylight with, wait, what's that, hanging there, it can't be, no, IT IS; A CHANDELIER. The chandelier can be seen partially from the top corner window of the box picture and under the "more images" section up at the top of this page but the weird thing is that you cannot see it from that angle after you build the set, unfortunate. It has a surprisingly easy to make but hard to think of design that is simply magnificent. The gem at the bottom is just plain awesome. Three more things on this chandelier: it has a stick on it so it stays with the third floor when you take it apart and to be connected, there is a break in the pattern but it faces the wall, so whatever and lastly, the part that connects it to the wall will let it tilt upward and looks like a laser cannon sort of thing or you can make it 180 to face up and then rotate it to face it down so it moves to right next to the wall. Also, if i am not mistaken, this is the first modular house to not have a stair case to get to the roof, aw. Speaking of which...
The roof and other stuff:
Finally, the roof, real simple details with what I think is new pieces and cylinders with some awnings. Lots of room for almost anything that you can think of from a band on a rooftop to a bungee jumper. there are three main parts to the roof, first, the billboard. This billboard has everything a billboard possibly needs, a giant face, a 3D present, a new 2x2 plate with one stud in the middle and a spot for the guy who changes them. The second roof part, the skylight, you may remember me talking about the skylight earlier but it is even more impressive from the top. It is two very large car windshields and a long flat element that needs it's own separate bag. It is sealed down tight but is not actually held by studs, but actually just held down by a total of five pieces. The part across the top is key because if you take it off, they still stay but they can slide out for whatever reason night you might need them to but it also provides a perfect spot for a sword fight over glass or a "pit" so to speak. The last and just about funniest part of the set, the window washer, I know, this is why you read the review, don't hate me for taking so long to get here.. Anyway, the window washer himself is a cute little guy with the same face as all the other people in the modular house sets (a clone O_O) and a little broom, he looks like the guy who would replace the billboard, handy, a two-in-one minifig. the window washer platform is small but handy and has a clear cup for him so he does not get thirsty and the plank that prevents him from falling off(for the most part) does not block him from standing on half the studs, yay. The one thing that bothers me about the platform though is that it cannot reach the second floor windows,
Well that concludes my review, except for the always important love em' or hate em' pros and cons.
Pros and Cons
---------
Cons:
---------
Not ideal for videos but can be somewhat fixed.
It is annoying when you accidentally place a letter tile in place of a white tile while you're building this set because you cannot get it out without tearing off the rest of all of the tile pieces around it.
The escalator does not move, good bye, dream for this set =''(
window washing platform does not go to second floor.
no staircase/escalator or any access to the roof
-------
Pros:
-------
plenty of places for dramatic battles.
good use of arch type of pieces
rare and unique new pieces I have never seen
great new colors
nice flower pots
for once, an easy to make, consistently used ceiling/upstairs floor design.
For the rest of the pros and cons see the main review, this was just the extras

Awesome!!!
" I was a little sketchy about this set, but after I read that LEGO was going to stop selling them soon. So I bought it for the price of one hundred and thirty dollars(USD)(yikes). But I have to admit that this is a really good set. The walking works well,the set looks awesome,and the minifigures are rare and very neat.
The AT-AT
This is a very nice looking model. Although you can see the whole inside of the model(from an angle) because the inside is technic, it is still looks very good on display and during play. This model is also very big. It looks to-scale with the minifigures, but with the snow speeder that was recently in the Hoth Wampa cave,this thing looks tiny!!!! The build of this set takes about 3 and a half hours,and it can be kind of confusing. Mostly because A LOT of the pieces are technic. The only annoying thing about building this set is the fact that building the legs is a long and boring process. But what I really loved about building this set was seeing it all come together.
The walking:
Seeing this walker walk is so freaking awesome. I just wish I had a cat or a dog to see the reaction they would get. But I must warn you......
#1 As soon as you are done putting the legs on and the battery box and the motor is in,TAKE A TEST RUN!!!!! I had my AT-AT all finished and as soon as I turned on the switch.......the rebels had a small victory. My walker fell right over.(luckily I was there to catch it) So just keep that in mind and you will be fine.
#2 The legs and all those rotating and moving parts have to be lined up JUST LIKE IN THE INSTRUCTION BOOKLET. OTHERWISE YOUR AT-AT WILL CRASH AND BURN!!!! So just make sure you do that.
#3 If and when you do a test run,make sure to be ready to catch it if it falls over.
If you follow these steps and take these precautions,your walker should survive to see another day of destroying and blowing stuff up.
The cons.......
Fist of all,there is no neck for the head of the walker,just a couple of technic pieces. It kind of looks dumb.
Second of all, you cannot move the head and the legs manually. you can only move them by turning the motor on.
Thirdly, I thought that not having a troop bay and a speeder like the last AT-AT wouldn't matter, but boy was I wrong!!! That is why I only rated play experience 4 instead of 5.
Fourthly, the blaster cannons on the side of the head,although they look sweet, fall off a lot.
The minifigures:
Luke Skywalker(in pilot gear) a very nice looking minifigure. I like the silver lightsaber handle.
General veers-I know people say that veers is just an imperial officer with the head and helmet of an AT-ST pilot, and that they would have wanted more creativity,but this minifigure looks just like veers. All in all, a nice minifigure
AT-AT pilot-This is the guy I looked forward to in this set. He looks very awesome.(even though he could have used his own blaster).
Snow trooper-This guy is really awesome, a great army builder
The price:
Okay,so the old 2002 AT-AT was $100.00. So even if you add the motor and the battery box to that,it is only about $110.00. Also, this version is smaller to. So I think Lego should have added Luke's snow speeder to this set. That would have made the price fair.
Overall,
This is one really good set and Lego probably won't make a newer version that can walk on its own for at least another 2 years. And I have seen pictures of a new $25.00 dollar hoth set coming out in late 2011.
So I highly suggest you buy this before Lego stops making it.
Hope this review helped you!!!

Good
" Now, I think Lego was trying to reach a younger audience with this one, mainly because of the "clone catapult." If someone was gonna' play with this, wouldn't they already be using their imagination? Well, just use a little more and make 'em fly! Here's a little info:
During the Clone Wars, the various signatories of the Confederacy of Independent Systems brought with them their unique droid armies to the Separatist fold. When Corporate Alliance Magistrate Passel Argente signed Count Dooku's treaty, he committed his droid tank forces to the cause. These units saw action in the very first battles of the Clone Wars -- on Geonosis -- as well as the final battles of that epic conflict, such as on Kashyyyk.
From the Expanded Universe
The Corporate Alliance used its automated armored forces to muscle local populations into agreeing to its draconian development terms. When Alliance members complained about unfair business practices, or went against the Alliance charter through patent infringements or missed dues, the Corporate Alliance would typically respond with its euphemistically named NR-N99 Persuader-class droids.
A hot-burning drive motor propels the central gripping tread that runs the entire length of a Persuader's frame. Flanking its long body are two outrigger treads that allow the tank to turn. These outriggers can also be fitted with mission-specific weapons, with common combinations including conventional ion cannons, homing lasers, and missile launchers. The outriggers also serve as running boards for droid infantry.
The swift tank droid can be pressed into service as a short range recon vehicle, using its stereoscopic photoreceptors to evaluate terrain conditions or enemy fortifications. The tank droids have limited fire arcs -- all their weaponry faces forward -- so they are typically deployed in teams or as part of mixed-droid elements to provide covering fire.
These tank droids can be thwarted by difficult terrain, such as ice and thick forests. It was commonly deployed in urban environments, where its weaponry and mass could batter down obstacles and buildings. When affixed with an intimidating vocoder, these droids can be very effective at routing out entrenched enemies without firing a single shot.
I would suggest it if you are a serious collector, but if not, I'd just get a little something better!
Happy building, my young apprentice!
