My son is really into building Legos. At 12, he likes the challenge of things he can design himself. He combines all his Lego sets and comes up with some really interesting creations. He and his dad have a contest to see who can build the most outrageous creations. Thumbs up for sure!

Overall I recommend you get Raanu after getting Zesk, Tarduk, Akatus and Metus, if you missed out on the Vakama fire claw thingy (which is a very cool piece indeed), if you want a blocker for Malum or you're just a diehard collector.

Go out and buy Raanu if you have the extra dough to spend, you won't regret it, even at their current price point! As far as looks, he is one of the most aesthetically pleasing small sets so far this year next to Metus, Zesk and Tarduk.

Overall, there are more things I like on Raanu than things I do not like. He has not disappointed me at all, and if you are planning to get an Agori, he is worth consideration.
