The following review is by my 12yo who requested the set... As a Ninjago fan since the first season, I have always loved the small spinner sets like the Airjitsu and Spinjitzu slams and now the amazing Spinjitzu Burst. It's really cool when you slam it as it bursts open and then closes again. The really detailed minifigure is a great bonus. Great set for the money, I'm really happy with it, the only minor thing that I would change is the elastic band to be coordinated with the set instead of being blue. I recommend the set to anybody who likes Ninjago or cool Lego!
For such a small build there is a lot to like here: new and interesting parts, a well-designed play feature, an exclusive minifigure and all at a price point under £10. The only missed opportunity I see is the absence of a handheld accessory for the minifigure. It's also a shame there are no bad guy Spinjitzu burst sets available at this time for our heroes to face off against. I suppose we'll assume Kai, Lloyd and Cole are just in training with each other.
These would probably make a good gift for a Ninjago fan or a younger builder, but otherwise I think you'd better of waiting for a sale before adding them to your collection. Knocking 15% or so off the price would be enough to make these seem more like a decent value, anyway.
The concept of the Spinjitzu series of the years is an interesting one; small, relatively cheap sets designed to be played with either individually or as a whole, with a unique play element not seen before in a traditional LEGO set. This year's Burst sets, however, fell short of my expectations by making it too difficult to spin satisfactorily, due in most part to the tightness of the elastic belt. Last year's Slam models seemed much more effective with what is essentially the same launcher, and although these are clearly an effort to improve upon the somewhat clunky mechanism of the original Spinjitzu Master spinners, I think this particular iteration may have missed the mark.
