Recommendation: meh 7.8 / 10 by Kai NRG

It's main problem is the lack of playability, but overall I would say it's a good addition to a spinner. Jay ZX is a great character, and, apart from this set, is somewhat rare.

Lightning Ninja Jay is a good set for the minifig and the weapons, and if you're into the Ninjago theme and want to get the characters for cheap, then this is a no-brainer. However, if you get some of the larger sets that also include Jay, then the booster pack could become redundant. But for a casual fan, I think this is a nice cheap way to get a hold of a Ninja.
