My son loved this ninjago lego set. He is 8 and had no problem building this set. It kept him busy for a few hours. He loves ninjago so he thought this set was perfect. He plays with it with his other lego sets and it's quite durable as it doesn't break apart. He loves how some of the pieces spin and move as it's very realistic. The quality of this set is just like lego standards and it's very high. Overall we would recommend this lego set!
Overlord Dragon (71742) was a fun build. However, beyond the build experience, I have no use for the set other than parts.
71742 Overlord Dragon took almost nine years to get to us, and thankfully the wait has produced a set that more than does the character justice. An eye-catching colour scheme, a long and tall body and decent wingspan are all reasons to overlook the rather lightweight nature of the wing design, as is the fact this is the first time we are getting the Overlord in what is described in the show as the character's true, original form. A rarity within the NINJAGO Legacy line for being completely original, 71742 Overlord Dragon is ultimately going to end up a must-have for collectors, and for good reason.
I appreciated that we got a solid dragon build in such an affordable set. Normally the smaller dragons cut corners, but since the Overlord dragon is spindly like a zombie, having the thin wings without the webbing looks just fine. The minifigs are very well detailed compared to their 2012 character releases, but we only get two of them. The set definitely focuses on the dragon more than the conflict, with which Lloyd might need extra help from one's collection, but the other Ninjas have his back. Between the dragon and the parts it has for building MOCs, the set offers a lot for its price.
The LEGO Ninjago Legacy Overlord Dragon (71742) is sort of a mixed bag for me. Dragons in general are pretty hard to get right and I feel that it didn't work here. The Overlord Dragon in the show had a more purple hue all around and the dark blue used for most of the body seems off. I get that LEGO was trying to do some light shading on it but it's not for me.
I think there was potential to design an even larger and more impressive dragon to represent the Overlord, whose villainy spanned two seasons. The wings look disappointing in particular, lacking detail when compared with other dragons. Despite some issues, the cost of £27.99 or $29.99 represents good value and I am pleased with this design at that price. I only wish the dragon had appeared even more spectacular!
