Recommendation: meh 4.6 / 5 from 96 reviews

Part of the summer 2018 release of Minecraft sets, this is a nod to the n00b (or newbie) player. The first thing a new Minecraft player must do - start with your wooden pickaxe and build a shelter! It combines well with the previous year Minecraft sets. The build for this, while set for the 8+ crowd, is still fairly simplistic and it is missing some nuance that would be nice. There are a *lot* of stacked plates, same size. UGGGHH for the disassembly of those - they are always the hardest bricks to pull apart. Colors are pretty uniform and additional colors would have been a sweet addition. On the good side, there are some more unique pieces, such as the red sheep's head, a pumpkin, iron ore, the crafting table. Missed opportunities: food (Steve has to eat), bones, or random bits of ore. Those would have been nice additions to round out the n00b set for Minecraft. At full retail value, it's around $.09 per brick.

Recommendation: meh 4.33 / 5 from 3 reviews

This is a good installment into the Lego minecraft series. The price per piece ratio is great and a good number of both minifigures and figures alike are included. The builds for these sets are very simple, with most construction being standard, not studs on the side. Very quick to assemble, took barely half an hour. I appreciate how three skeletons are included in this set. They are good figures to collect and provide extra play value. As for the build itself it is very simplistic. Not too much going on. However it definitely does its job as an affordable Lego set.

Recommendation: no 3.5 / 5

There are already many LEGO Minecraft sets, and The Skeleton Attack is a welcomed addition. Although mostly for Minecraft fans, LEGO lovers will enjoy assembling this set and playing with the mini-figures.
