This set is absolutely fantastic! I ordered it off of eBay all the way from England to get it early and had to pay $40 extra but it does not disappoint! All of the minifigures Kai, Cole, Jay, Zane the 4 original ninja in this set with The Master Of The Golden Dragon who I will get to in a minute. Then you get Iron Baron, the leader of The Dragon Hunters with his second in command Heavy Metal! Chew Toy and Arkade are great too but the better of the 2 is Arkade becuse this figure is exclusive and becuse the torso printings is really nice! The Master Of The Golden Dragon takes the cake though as this figure is excellent! All of the Dragon Armor on Teen Wu, just makes me want the other figure in Deislnaut even more! The set itself has a lot of features that all work great! The gate feature works great and the jail is small but is really fun to play with! Overall it's an amazing set with amazing builds!

Recommendation: yes 4.5 / 5 by Vaderfan2187

All things considered, I have been really pleasantly surprised by this set. It didn't stand out to me when the Hunted wave was first unveiled, but I think this is worthy of being the largest set in the theme, and probably one of the best. The build is very nice and I'm glad that LEGO is making playsets with more depth. The Earth Dragon build is okay, though it is a fair bit smaller than the other Season 9 dragons so far (which is reasonable). The minifigure selection is also very good — I like getting the main antagonist (Iron Baron) and all four original ninja plus the full set of Golden Dragon armor. Playability is great too as the playset build simulates a large arena and you can battle the Earth Dragon or tame it and attack the Dragon Hunters. I think this set justifies its price point as well, due to how detailed the build is. All in all, this is a great set that I definitely recommend.

Recommendation: meh 4.2 / 5 from 16 reviews

Awesome set. From the minute it came out of the box, to the minute they completed it, the grandkids were mesmerized. With a fully articulated dragon, projectile misses, weapons (the dragon master has a very cool sword), and 9 characters (one of them even has a mechanical looking arm!) this set has everything you want. The directions were straight forward and easy to follow. The only difficulty came when some pieces were put together incorrectly and the piece separator was unable to separate them, but that was easily remedied with some adult help.

As this is the most expensive set in the Ninjago Hunted theme, it probably wouldn't be the first I'd recommend. However, it creates a sizable structure with some fun functions and includes a majority of the main characters, so I think it's the best single set to capture the full theme of the Dragon hunters. I'll admit that the structures may not be quite as iconic as some of the other large Ninjago temples of the past; part of this is because the setting is in a more desolate realm, so a more worn down structure is believable. But I think the play features in this set are very high, which will benefit a younger audience. For older builders, the main draw will likely be the useful color palette for steampunk or dieselpunk designs, and 1660 pieces for $130 is a good value too. There's a lot to like about this set, and if it's within your budget, it could be worthwhile.

As the biggest of the LEGO NINJAGO Dragon Hunter sets, you can expect a few hours of building time and it's certainly a much more fun build than the Dieselnaut was. The dragon is my favourite part of the whole build, even though it only makes up a small section of the overall set. Although play features are limited, they are still fun, especially the gate mechanism, which really didn't seem like it would control both gates simultaneously at first.

70655 Dragon Pit is an excellent set on the whole, although certain aspects of its design are surprising. The model is extremely large but includes relatively little interior space and few play functions. There is lots of room to place minifigures on the external platforms though and the functions which are included work well. In addition, the entire model is highly detailed, even in some areas that are not immediately visible from the front.
