Recommendation: meh 4.67 / 5 from 12 reviews

My son is a huge Ninjago fan and he loves building with Lego, so this Skull Sorcerer's Dragon set was very exciting for him. He's right about the recommended age for this set and with just over 1000 pieces, I thought this set would take him a couple days to complete. He was so excited that it took him just a few hours and he didn't need any help! He absolutely loves the dragon and the numerous minifigures that came with the set. The set has stayed built for weeks and he plays with it and his other Ninjago Lego sets together. The set includes a type of board game that incorporates the set, but he hasn't shown much interest in trying to figure that out. Could be fun for other Lego lovers though. This set is terrific and the large skull sorcerer's dragon is definitely eye catching!

Recommendation: meh 80 / 100 by John

This was a treat of a set. I'm super excited to finally have a fearsome and super cool looking dragon in the collection. I would have liked to have seen a better tail joint mechanism, but what is there is manageable. It's not what I'd call swooshable, but it's still fun to position.

Recommendation: meh by TobyMac

Well, the dragon sure looks amazing. Lose the seat and flags, and it will easily fit in a display. For that part alone, I think the set is worth its money. For the rest of the set: unless you plan on playing the game, there is not much in it. The board pieces are simple and boring to build, and it adds nothing to the dragon itself.

Recommendation: yes by Chris Doyle

Dragons are always a good draw for LEGO sets, and this one should be no exception to that trend. The build is engaging, the play features solid, and the look is top-notch. At under 8 cents per piece, it's a good value for those looking for parts to use in their own creations, too. And what a selection of pieces! There are rare and unique elements, cool recolors, and six new-for-2020 minifigures to be had. The “gaming experience" is a pretty weak addition in a meta sense, but the small island elements are fun to build and both have action features.

71721 Skull Sorcerer's Dragon looks magnificent, as anticipated. This impressive creature is phenomenally detailed and captures the distinctive skeletal aesthetic which is associated with the Skull Sorcerer. I am particularly delighted with the head and the ribcage, both of which are quite different to previous NINJAGO dragons, despite incorporating some familiar construction techniques.
