Out of all the series of Ninjago sets that sold single characters with an included gimmick, this is by far my most favorite one. The design and idea of it are so good. I love the arcade machine gimmick and it comes with a lot of weapons, much more than what these kinds of small sets would normally include. Considering that these are only $10, I want to buy the rest of them, and I hope LEGO releases other characters with this gimmick. Not only are they great-looking collectibles for display, but they also gave me an idea to create an arcade for my LEGO city. I recommend buying these. Cheap, minimal experience and time to build, and they offer enough to be a bang for your buck.
I have all three of these arcade sets, and the arcade on this one actually has a different design (just barely in the top ear details), which makes it a little more unique. I think these little sets are worth the ten bucks for the two mini figs and the playability/customization. There are many weapons and the mini figs are interchangeable. There are also lots of stickers so you can customize your arcade set. I don't really know the backstory of this particular set and the changing into a video game arcade, but it's kind of cool anyway.
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.
LEGO has produced various collectable packs during recent years but the Arcade Pods are notably distinctive and 71716 Lloyd Avatar - Arcade Pod looks great. I like this green colour scheme and the decorative stickers, although printing would have been even better. Moreover, the concept of placing minifigures inside to represent their transition from NINJAGO into the digital world is effective.
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.
