OK so that quote is from Ninjago: Legacy and is kind of relatable, since I got it for my b-day a few days ago. Although this is definitely not the best present I've ever gotten, it was probably the best thing I got for my b-day this year. ANYWAY, on to the review. The minifinger selection (yes I like brickitect) are probably the worst part of the set. None of them are bad, but the selection is a little weak. You get Kai, who I now have 3 in his Legacy suit, Cole, who I didn't have before, and two Stone Warriors, which are both good, and now I have 3 of them. Kai and Cole also happen to be first and second favorite of the Ninja, so that helps it out a little. The Earth Driller itself is much bigger than I thought, and I love it. When you push it along, the drill twists (both pieces in opposite directions), which is a really great function. There is also a well-integrated knob in the back of the vehicle that you can twist to turn the drill if you want to do that while the vehicle stands still, which is a really nice feature and kind of makes it 2 functions in one. The cockpit can fit 2 figures, which is better than the original with one, but in the show, it could fit up to 8 people, which I guess now it's a little better. There are also a bunch of stickered tiles inside with small details. The windshield is a really awesome (maybe) new mold that is printed with earth-like designs. There is sand green scattered about, and I like how it keeps the rock-like theme that most of Cole's previous vehicles have. There are stud shooters, which are just stud shooters, but that adds a little playability to the set. Also, there are clips on the back of it where you can store your weapons, which I appreciate. The Stone Warrior is good, but not as big as I thought. The legs have the normal minifigure posability, but the arms are on ball joints so you can move them more. There are big katanas you can attach to its arms, which adds some playability as you can kind of slash them down. There are a lot of stickers on the chest and legs which I don't like, but then again, almost every modern Lego set comes with stickers so it isn't that big of a deal. The helmet is designed well and there is some good part usage, and I LOVE the face print on the face of the Stone Warrior. There some exposed studs and colors on the model however, and it would be pretty easy to fix some of them. Lastly, I don't like the Scythe of Quakes' new design and is the only Golden Weapon that got downgraded IMO. I don't have any cons about this set, just nitpicks. Overall, I would totally recommend it. 10/10

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.
