Recommendation: meh 4.4 / 5 by penguinz

At first I thought Power Miners was a total failure. I am now convinced that it may be one of the best themes this year. The lime green, orange, black, and dark gray color scheme works nice and does not clash. Even though the rock monsters may be small and cute I still think that they fit the part. The Mine Mech functions perfectly and can be set in a variety of poses. Overall I recommend you to try at least one of the Power Miner sets, this one especially. They are cheap and offer a great selection of pieces.

Recommendation: meh 32 / 40 by VBBN

Overall, I think this is okay. It definatly doesn't compare to Exo-Force in my opinion, but it does have an interesting color scheme and selection of parts, plus the figs are just great. Somewhat recommended to casual fans.

Recommendation: meh 8 / 10 by Alldarker

All in all, this set is a whole lot nicer than I expected it would be. It's small, but a walker is always fun to pose and play around with.

The box art makes it look awful, but the finished model is super cute, especially with bent legs.
