This set is easy to overlook, but it packs quite a punch. The figures are the standout, with the build seeming additional. First, the armor of the ice samurai is absolutely stunning in person. It has icicles spread sporadically across the armor, forming the intricate crown of the helmet. The ice printing on the torso and legs, however, looks quite fake. That said, I love how the torso printing allows for a white hue to shine through the transparent icicle armor. Finally, the choice to use that aqua hue for the flesh makes for a very zombie-like look, and complement the other hues of blue very well. I particularly love the head. The scars have a subtle but appreciated metallic blue print. Lloyd comes in this set with stunning leather garb. The garb is done in a tasteful dark brown, with some metallic gold printing for the buckles. He has a shoulder sash, which has a nice "L" symbol in the Ninjago language, also done in that gold. His robes have earth green as the accent, a color which complements the bright green base very well. He also comes with a new shoulder pad attachment, which has a nice shuriken-like symbol on it. Finally, we have Akita. This form of Akita is exclusive to this set. Inspired by the Kitsune, Akita has three tails, with dual-molded red tips. This accent of red is also seen on the whiskers of the face. I greatly appreciate LEGO including such a piece in an affordable set. As for the build, it's quaint but detailed. The two side builds include a 2x2 for Lloyd's sword, and a lantern for Lloyd to hold. The hilt uses a lightsaber flipped vertically, with the lantern attached on top. The base itself is a rock formation that is wooded at the bottom and shielded at the top. The base is covered with several icy details, with the use of barb parts as icicles, and some rock and tooth plates for snow. In the center is a crossbow that can shoot studs, the only point of functionality in the set. I appreciate the intricacy for its size, but it isn't anything too special. Overall, $15 seems steep for such a build. However, consider what's included. This set provides one with several of Summer 2019's new elements, including the intricate ice armor and helmet, in addition to the new Ninja shoulder pad. Also included is Akita. Animal elements are more expensive for LEGO to produce than normal Minifigures. Therefore, I would recommend this set for anyone interested in Minifigures and elements. If you are looking for a set fun to play with, I would recommend one of the Spinjitzu Slam sets or Cole's Dirt Bike. Retailing in the same price range, they offer much more potential playtime in regards to functionality.
On one hand, this is very appealing set if it's a minifigure battle pack but on the other hand, as it is a small set, I expected more than just the wolf and a few parts.
I think this set is alright. It's pretty decent as far as small sets go but if you're looking for something truly of substance then this isn't for you. It's a good thing to whet your appetite for this wave of LEGO Ninjago sets, but the actual structure of the set leaves much to be desired.
Figures are frequently the highlight of smaller NINJAGO sets and this example is no exception. Lloyd and the Blizzard Warrior are both brilliant, although they are available elsewhere. The brand new wolf, on the other hand, is exclusive and looks absolutely fantastic in my opinion, striking a perfect balance between ferocious and adorable design.
