My Grandson, age 12,loves these things, many kids do. That's why they're so expensive I guess. He loves getting a set of LEGO's like this which will be put together within an hour and then they sit on a shelf and collect dust. At least one full hour of sheer joy putting these tiny little pieces together, so worth it I suppose for all the skills playing with Legos develop such as fine motor skills, problem solving, persistence, a sense of accomplishment, instant gratification in some instances, math and engineering skills. Try to remember this when you step on one of the little pieces barefoot.
This set is an average set. The build itself looks spectacular and a great improvement from the 2013 version. However, I am having trouble with the drilling function. I have checked my instructions over 10 times and there is no mistake. The problem seems to be when I add the small black gear that connects the thruster and the drill. When that small gear is attached the red axles stop responding to the right wheel. It is quite frustrating and really disappointing that I am unable to use the main feature of the set.
Overall, I think this is another strong addition to the LEGO Ninjago Legacy lineup. Both of the builds are great updates to their original LEGO versions – I especially like the Earth Driller and its interior. The four minifigures included are not bad, and the playability is quite high due to balanced forces and a fun drilling feature. Finally, the price is good too, as both the build size and the piece count seem very fair for the price. Pretty great set overall, would recommend.
I'll admit, I am a little biased here because the original Earth Driller was one of my favorite Ninjago vehicles, so nostalgia factors in. But unlike some of the other Legacy Ninjago sets, this is not a mere recreation with modern pieces, but a vast improvement that pays tribute to both the original set and the vehicle from the show. And the Stone Warrior works well using the brick build design. This set is a worthy way for some to enjoy a classic Ninjago set or for newer fans to get introduced to the design. I would easily recommend this to even a modest fan of the series, although I recognize that it's not perhaps the most affordable set.
I highly recommend this set from the perspectives of both the build experience and the finished set. It looks great and offers huge amounts of playability – a worthy addition to anyone's LEGO NINJAGO collection.
