Recommendation: no 3.5 / 5 from 4 reviews

TLDR: Large mobile base with tons of space for minifigures and some great play features but suffers from symmetric build and limited color palette. For Build: A lot goes into making the base sturdy and much of the build is repetitive with its symmetry. The most fun I had was building the lava accents around the light brick as well as the miniature Demon Bull King. In Play: Mobile bases have a certain appeal and bring a lot of play value, otherwise I doubt LEGO would keep making them. There is a lot of space to place figures and acts well as a mobile command center. The stud shooters are what they are, but having lots of defenses is important for a base like this! The dump truck is very similar stylistically to the Iron Bull Tank, but works as the engine for this beast of a base. On Display: This set definitely looks best from the front, with the menacing bull-faced dump track and wheels locked together. However, from most other angles it can appear like a big, dark, square without much visual appeal. The flame additions and pink flags help, but the color accents are few and far between. Such commitment to a color scheme works well for the Iron Bull Tank but does not work as well when scaled up to this level. Also, the square footprint is rather large and harder to fit on shelves.
