Recommendation: meh 4.2 / 5 from 191 reviews

My husband and I both enjoyed Legos as children and decided to start collecting and building as adults. We have a toddler son who we hope to share the hobby with one day. This set was our first purchase and it took us about an hour to assemble it together. The bags are numbered which makes it easy to know which order to open them in.The dragon is easily the best part of the set. His wings flap and his mouth opens and closes. You can move his neck and tail. The detail is great. I also enjoy the minifigs in this set, especially the bad guys. The catapult really works. We set this up and shortly after built the Medieval Village, which is also great.Highly recommended for kids of all ages!

Recommendation: meh 4 / 5 by oo7

This is a good set for castle builders. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone not building medieval creations, as the price per piece is higher than other better sets, and the dragon is entirely useless in all non-fantasy creations. The playability is sure to attract kids, and the set's build experience is better than many elaborate-yet-repetitive builds.

Recommendation: no 4 / 10 by Echo

This is a decidedly below average set and a very feeble attempt at a villainous base. There are some nice parts and it is nice to see a furnished castle set, but the design is very disappointing. Take the money you would have spent on this set and go use it on The Gatehouse Raid and Forest Ambush instead, or if you want a good evil tower, go Bricklink 7947.

The Dragon totally outclasses and outsizes every thing in this set, making it look smaller than it already is. It was an interesting build and I enjoyed putting the catapult and structure together but I just can't shake the feeling that it would've been an amazing set if the Mountain part of Dragon Mountain were bigger. In its current form, it looks a little too bare and insubstantial for me. I really like the concept behind the design but I really wished that they had made the structure with more bricks. Oh and the dragon is amazing, save for the chinny fire breathing bit.
