Small detailing such as the sand green trims and stickers add to the overall visuals of the set. It's a great take on the original design and improves on it in many ways. For example, the handle at the back of the jet is less prominent but still adds stability to the jet when placed on a surface as well as being a great way to zoom it around. The improved cockpit canopy is also a neat addition and is much better than the one used on the 2015 version.

71736 Boulder Blaster is another fine example of how NINJAGO Legacy is doing wonders. These aren't re-releases – they're re-imaginings, and ones that take already great LEGO models and make them truly fantastic.

Recommendation: meh by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

Overall, the LEGO Ninjago Boulder Blaster (71736) is a nice little update to the previous version which makes it sleeker and the colors more consistent. I do like that you can get an exclusive minifigure to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Ninjago with the Golden Kai. The price for what you get is decent and you get one additional minifigure but I think that and combined with some newer parts on the jet resulted in a $10 price increase.

Recommendation: meh by CapnRex101

The powerful Boulder Blaster is among the most recognisable vehicles from NINJAGO in my opinion, due primarily to its distinctive wing configuration and resulting shape. I have therefore been looking forward to the release of this Legacy model and I am pleased with 71736 Boulder Blaster, especially concerning its appearance. The new design includes far superior detail over 70747 Boulder Blaster and the canopy looks magnificent.
