The Dragon looks great, I love how the colours overlap. Both the heads look great. The forge is good. Nothing amazing or anything but a very good build. I like the way they include extra weapons. The only thing I don't like about this set is the Buffmillion mech. It looks awkward and isn't very sturdy. I would have preferred another minifigure instead, like another ninja or vermillion, or maybe even Cyrus Borg who we haven't had a minifigure of since rebooted. I love the minifigures. I wish we could get some of the other ninja's parents in a set. I like the Kai and Nya figures. Kai's face has needed an update for ages and Nya's looks so much better then the previous one. I think this is overall a good set and is worth getting.

Recommendation: yes 91 / 100 by Tom

Dragon's Forge is an excellent value set, even when purchased at full price. You get an great per brick value, and an amazing build-time cost. I think that kids will love the forge building, as well as the Fusion Dragon. The set also comes with heroes, villains, and civilians for all sorts of play options. For the adult fans, the building has a nice design that would fit nicely with Ninjago City's “old town" section. With the exception of the Buffmillion Mech, I really like this set.

My son is a HUGE Ninjago/Lego fan so this was a HAVE TO HAVE purchase. All of the pieces were included. It looks pretty awesome once constructed. I would say this would be appropriate for a really skilled 5 year old or on the general age scale, 9 and above. There are a lot of pieces and any younger, you might find them stuck to the bottom of your foot, possibly never put together because of lost pieces and at that point, not worth the $$$ you paid.

Recommendation: meh 4 / 5

There is a lot for kids to discover as the build and play with this set, and they will really like the hidden Dragon Dagger feature and the moving parts that allow them to really recreate what they've seen on the show. It will make a wonderful addition to a LEGO Ninjago collection, helping kids extend the storyline and create even more Spinjitzu stories.

Recommendation: meh 23 / 30 by legozebra

For $79.99 (US), Dragon Forge has really good value for its price. I appreciate the all-new figures, although Ray could have been done a bit better, and Buffmillion is growing on me. The dragon is good, if not great as it brings pretty much nothing new to the table. The shop is much better, and I love the door shaping.
