Recommendation: yes 5 / 5 from 5 reviews

This is an awesome set that has two complete minifigures. I am amazed that there is two minifigures in just one small set! This is amazing. I can't believe that they had a new piece that is very detailed.

Recommendation: yes 4.5 / 5

The way these look when folded up for storage is awesome, and the clever implementation of the storage areas is to be applauded. The figures themselves look great and come with neat accessories that really bring out the best of the Ninjago line and this particular iteration of the characters.

Recommendation: meh 4.4 / 5 from 13 reviews

This was a cute little lego my son bought with a card from his Grandmother. He got this one and the green Lego one. The box makes it look like a little arcade. The only issue he had was with the stickers at first as they were not peeling right and it was pulling the whole sheet off instead of one individual sticker. Since they're regular Lego they are as sturdy as the normal ones and good fun for the imagination.

Recommendation: meh by Chris

With two minifigures, a cool (albeit difficult to repurpose) arcade cabinet, and a plethora of weapons, these small sets feel like a solid buy at $9.99 USD. They might have slightly less play value than the rip-cord spinners and flyers of previous Ninjago themes, but kids love containers that let them take their favorite characters with them on the go. Adult fans might find them a bit less enticing, but they do serve as a relatively inexpensive way to get your hands on a number of cool new elements like the game controller. And as far as minifigure pods go, there's no denying these are way cooler than the round pods that LEGO's produced before.

Although they offer minimal building, I love the new arcade cabinet shell and how all the elements can be contained within it. Of course the main draw has to be the Minifigures. The Digi-ninja can be found in other sets, but their avatars are exclusive to the Arcade Pods.
