Now for the biggest draw of this set, KNEES. They function great, very good design in them and they have a great amount of friction, so I don't expect them to give up on me anytime soon. The rest of the articulation is good to, love that the shoulder pads can move up when lifting the arm. Now for the rest of the mech. It has a really nice angular design compared to previous mechs. Love the choice of color with the white, azure and sand blue as well. The skirt pieces being able to move on joints to hide the racket joints was a great idea as well. Now I do have two issues with the set. The spring loaded shooters feel too easy to shoot, with any slight graze firing them. My second complaint is the figure selection. I love the current figures but I would've loved an extra ninja, as the original did come with Jay. Aside from that, lovely set and would recommend.
LEGO has produced countless different mechs during recent years, many of which include magnificent detail and convey unique personality. 71738 Zane's Titan Mech Battle definitely achieves those feats and has instantly become one of my favourite LEGO mechs, potentially rivalling the excellent 70676 Lloyd's Titan Mech! Of course, this rendition is distinguished from Lloyd's impressive vehicle by its improved articulation.
71738 Zane's Titan Mech is so well put together it's almost over-designed. The intricate nature of the bodywork, the clever parts usage throughout and an ingenious build solution for the knees are all factors that by themselves would be enough to make this set worthy of its price and of adding to the NINJAGO collection.
There's a lot to enjoy with this set. At $60 US for 840 pieces, this set comes in at a healthy seven cents per part. That's a good ratio in general, and in this case, it also includes four exclusive minifigures. There's a good range of useful and unusual parts, and even the stickers are pretty nifty. The build is fun, with enough technical complexity to keep things interesting. On the downside, the play features are a little minimal, and I'm still kind of irked about the cockpit design. But those are minor quibbles for an otherwise spectacular set.
