This set is a fantastic mech with great features, as well as being an introduction to the story of the Monkey King, something I've been interested in for some time. I really enjoyed building and posing this, the colours stand out so well and it looks so impressive when finished. The build was not too challenging but the finished product is more than the sum of the parts. The extras, especially the building are well thought out. I'd only say that this seemed quite pricey when similar mechs in the Ninjago Movie range were much less money. Still, I can't help feel that the monkey is worth every penny.
Once complete, first impressions are great. The outcome is a huge figure with a lot of cool features, it easily fits a minifigure and also has great arm movements. Unfortunately the articulation comes at the cost of less coverage of the joints. The elbows, especially, don't look too good from the back or when the arm is straight. The movement of the legs isn't really there; no knee joints and the feet are also fairly limited, so you can't pose a walking or kicking mech.
119 Metallic Gold pieces speak for themselves. Also the foil elements and cape caught my attention and I'm looking forward to see how they look on the final build.
I love the range of builds in this set! There is an attention to detail at every level that makes each of the models a joy to build. for me, the weakest link is the bad guys and their little mech. Overall this is an amazing set and certainly worth every penny. I'm already excited to dig into another Monkie Kid set!
