This set was my first destiny's bounty, and it is probably the best set I have purchased in a long time. it isn't a perfect model of the season 1 destiny's bounty, but I wouldn't have expected it to be. starting at the bow of the ship, the dragon's head is completely brick built, and looks good. The anchor winch is good, but the chains should be longer. The sail-raising function works great and looks very elegant, and it doesn't take up very much room to make it work. There is a below deck storage room that has a training dummy and some extra cannonballs for the cannon above it. I took out the extra cannonballs and put in the extra silver shurikens. The control bridge has what looks like some sort of radar off to the side, and a steering wheel. the enclosed area of the bridge has a training dojo that comes off with several weapons. The roof has a small container for the silver shurikens and some katanas or other swords. The flags are good, and they have stickers on them for detail. the engine pods don't have the hinging part like in the show, but that can be fixed with a little modification. the pods fold down for takeoff, and when they do, smaller stabilizer engines slide out at the front. they don't rotate up and down though. The pods also don't fold down far enough to be screen accurate, but again, that can be fixed.there is a balcony on the stern, but it's too small for any of the figures to fit back there. as for the minifigures, all of them are excellent. I love the new legacy suits with the golden dragons. samurai x's helmet attachment comes off kind of easily though. Master Wu's kimono is very elegant, and the dragon on his back goes well with the legacy suits. Lloyd is a good figure with a design that hasn't been done in a while, but I would have prefered having a young Lloyd in his legacy suit instead. All in all, this is an amazing set, and I hope that they do more of these in the future.
Ultimately, this version of Destiny's Bounty (71705) is a good set, especially if you missed the last one. It comes at a great value with some nicely detailed Minifigures. However, for a kit this size, there are not very many characters included. Additionally, the set lacks the detailing of its predecessor. However, the lack of small embellishments also means less stuff to fall off an lose. Consequently, the set is more play friendly for smaller kids.
I think both Ninjago fans and LEGO lovers in general will be very pleased with this set. At $130 for 1,781 pieces, it has a nice price-per-part average of only 7.3 cents. While there aren't a ton of super rare or new elements, there are a few. Seven minifigures (including two unique ones) and a lot of useful parts for custom building also help make this feel like a solid value. The play features are well thought out and work well, and the build is engaging, if a little tricky at times. If your budget has room for a larger LEGO set, I think this one is worthy of consideration even at full price.
