I love this spider. It has a cool color scheme, imposing size, and is likely the most polished and largest arachnoid build LEGO has created. Also, the fold-out base feature and front leg movement works wonderfully. But a few frustrations are still present when trying to move it or use on any sort of carpet. Build: The build is quite varied. The middle, back and legs are all very different and cool. However, building six large, identical legs got a bit tedious. It was fun to discover little secrets and stickers along the way. Play: When I finished building on my carpet, I was immediately disappointed that I couldn't get it to move! Most of the legs get stuck and prevent any sort of motion. Also, the front leg function, while it works great on a smooth surface, can also get stuck in even short carpet lengths. When used on a flat wood surface everything worked much more smoothly. However, most of the motion comes from sliding, and not wheels, even though there are black pieces holding up the entire front of the build. The base on the back is quite fun to open and use, but is the only really good place to grab the spider to move it. Display: This thing is huge, and shares a similar footprint to the Monkie Kid Dronecopter. It looks really nice displayed next to other Monkie Kid builds, especially the other spider builds and looks good from pretty much all angles.
Arachnoid Base is a fun build. Additionally, it offers something different from most LEGO® sets on the market right now. It is neither a building nor a run-of-the-mill vehicle. The overall value is good too, and the Minifigures are great. My major complaints are that the set needs more Minifigures, as well as a more detailed interior.
It's a hefty set, which is visually striking and just as impressive as some of the other large-scale Monkie Kid sets. The use of colours works amazingly well and makes the Spider Queen fleet notable from Iron Bull King's collection of weaponry. The various green elements, be they solid colour or transparent pieces, give the set a menacing feel.
The main completed model sports a striking colour scheme coupled with a great design - if only the small flying machine wasn't so bland! The build process could do with a little less repetition, but once we're done with it the spider base offers plenty of playing potential with the opening interior section, and looks gorgeous on display. It might carry the “Monkie Kid tax", but if we look past price-per-part ratios this set is definitely worth every dime.
Although the set doesn't command the highest piece count of those in the wave, the completed spider is impressively large, both in height and the span of its legs. It has a fantastically bright and suitably sinister colour scheme, just as you'd expect from an evil villain, and plenty of play features for the targeted age range of 9+.
