Recommendation: yes 10 / 10 by GIR 3691

I'd definitely recommend picking this up as a test of the new theme. If you don't like it, you still get plenty of neat pieces.

Recommendation: yes 4.5 / 5 by The Cobra

As a 10 bucks set, it's compact without being cozy, it looks good thanks also to the stickers, it has an opening "cockpit" thanks to the hinged roll-bar, it comes with not so few accessories, some of which are vehicle add-ons like those white gas tanks (I guess that's what they are) and the 2x2 round headlight. But the heart of this set is the grinding mechanism. I first thought "what is a rubber band supposed to do there?", then I found out and I though "ingenious". Kids will love how the "double pronged jackhammer" moves when the treads roll.

An enjoyable playing set and it's definitely one of the better small Power Miner sets available in the market.

Recommendation: meh 7.7 / 10 by Ryan "chief" Wood

This set simply has a hard-to-define charm about it that I love, even more so than some of the smaller Star Wars sets I've gotten of late.
