Recommendation: meh 4.8 / 5 from 5 reviews

This is a BIG build, and is enjoyable throughout. He stands pretty solidly, and can grip the surface he stands on better than most mech's due to a new technique in the feet LEGO implemented (i won't spoil it) The color selection and unique pieces used make it exciting to get through, i didn't even want to step away once. The purple, magenta, and bright orange is a very pleasing color scheme to the eyes, i can't stress that enough. The light brick is obviously a great added bonus to this set, we don't get those all that often. However, my one gripe would be the figure selection. I see in the other sets, there are pretty cool looking 'bad guys'. I'm not too familiar with the theme, so maybe it wouldn't make sense to add a couple of 'grunt' soldiers in with 'Princess Iron Fan'. Either way, 3 figures in a $90 set isn't enough IMO. Obviously i knew this going into it, just felt like it's worth mentioning to LEGO directly. Of course i am a bit biased being a Ninjago guy, they spam us with minifigs in those sets, which as we all know is a very good thing.

Recommendation: meh 88 / 100 by John

Overall it's an impressive and imposing set. It certainly looks like someone you would not want to mess with, and I reckon it has some good bull-like characteristics in the feet, as well as the obvious head. The colour scheme is wild, but it totally works. The purple and dark pink just add to the angry feel of the bull. Mix that with the black and metallic black and it is excellent.

Recommendation: meh 84 / 100 by Tom

The Demon Bull King (80010) is an excellent value in every way except for the Minifigure count. I feel this set needs more characters. However, the build features expert design, detail, and articulation. Additionally, it has a lot of play potential. However, I find it hard to relate to the characters because the show has not aired in Canada.

Recommendation: meh 4 / 5 by Richard

It is tall and imposing: a force to be recked with. He is sturdy – and quite posable. The light brick makes for a suitably evil glow! I am delighted to have started with this build in my Monkie Boy experience.

Recommendation: meh by Jason

It's crazy that in almost any other theme, this could be the flagship set, but there are still three larger sets than this in the Monkey Kid theme. Still, the Demon Bull King stands out on his own as a very daunting character and looks to be excellent when paired up with the Monkey King mech. He could easily be sent rampaging through your LEGO City. Even so, he is at quite a high price, which could be the limiting factor on how many people pick him up for their kids. Even for a Western audience, I think he's quite impressive, and I hope that the Chinese builders who grew up with Monkey King stories will greatly appreciate the theme; I look forward to see where they take it from here.

Recommendation: meh by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

Overall, if you've built LEGO mech type builds before, the Demon Bull King (80010) will look somewhat familiar in terms of building techniques. Since we don't know yet how he ends up in this mechanical state, it's hard to compare it to the cartoon but I will say that I like the look of it. The orange looks really good against the purples and blacks. The stud shooter cannon play feature is nothing too special but I like the axe that he holds.

Recommendation: meh by Huw

I appreciate that it does not come with any mini-models that would bump up the price: people will be buying it for the beast and any superfluous additions are not needed. To be honest, the minifigs are not really needed, either: it's that good. It's big, fearsome, colourful and looks great on display as well as (I imagine) being awesome to play with: what's not to like!

Recommendation: meh by Tim Johnson

In a set with no side-builds, interior space or modularity, in order to warrant the price the completed model must be interesting enough to play with, to look at and of course to build. Having done all 3, I do feel as though the Demon Bull King ticks all the boxes – though I personally feel it only excels in one of those things, with the lattermost being its strongest attribute. Squeaky joints notwithstanding!
