I was pleasantly surprised with this set. I thought it would be sort of typical for an Agents set, but it is very unique! The figs are great, and the airboat has great... ummm... 'zoomability?' Don't know the word for non-spacecraft... Anyways, this looks like the best-valued Agents 2.0 set for the money, and would recommend it to any Lego fan.

...at least until 10 minutes after he put it together and then took it apart and it merged with the other 75,000 Legos he had. But hey, he would have only had 74797 legos without it. If you bothered to do the math I salute you. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because it was a bit expensive, as all Legos are.

Recommendation: meh 8 / 10 by Natman8000

This set is fun. There are so many possibilities to do with it, and ways to mod it. I would recomend this to most, but only if you are buying this for a 'for fun' set. Besides the cool figs and parts, things are pretty shallow.

The set is great if you have spare money or if you like Agents; it's an okay set. LEGO could have had the villains steal a bit more than just $300.

We had fun building this set. Well my niece built most, I gathered the parts list, and helped with the technic elements. I really liked the minifigs in this set! They are way kool! I never had minifigs like this as a kid. Some people love the old stuff, I can't seem to take apart all this new stuff we build. Great designs.
