Quite an interesting vehicle to say the least. The amazing Frakjaw minifig was what compelled me to buy this set.

Front box pic, interesting it doesn't really show off the main feature of the set, rather the golden sythe and the Ninjas. Wonderful artwork though. Mine says 298 pieces...

On the back it shows us the biting feature and at the top it shows off the figures included in action poses with their names underneath. Good for the dull eyed collector.

Box Contents:

:sing: This box is actually full.

Posted Image

Posted Image

3 Numbered bags, 2 instruction books and 6 loose parts. No stickers here.
2 bent Instruction books seems very unnecessary for 223 298 223 whatever number of pieces.

Instruction front shows off the same box art on the front.

What I like is in the back of the 2nd book it shows off a battle scene and a nice list of all the Ninjago characters in action poses.

Plus some freaky looking children playing the actual game.

I think these two could become friends.

Luckily there is no grass in my house.

Minifigs:

3 are included, Jay and Cole the ninjas in regular garb plus the skeleton of fire, Frakjaw with the Golden Sythe :wub:

Posted Image
Posted Image

Jay seems to be missing part of his right eyebrow (both mine have that same mark) and Cole has a lazy eye.

Frakjaw is just 100x better with that hat on which has lovely detail. Reminds me of some kind of freaky megablocks scarecrow.

Pieces of Interest:
Posted Image
I believe the wheels were used in Power Miners set but they were grey.

The only printed piece in the set.
Posted Image
The Build:

We start off building the middle section and the mechanism for making the 'jaw' open and close.
Posted Image

The black technic piece coming off the gear will attach to a technic pin on the jaw part.

Before adding the front treads.
Posted Image
Posted Image
So when the front treads roll, it turns an axle, which turns the gear which makes the black technic piece from before turn thus making the jaw roll forward.
Posted Image

The back wheels attatch together nicely. Creating a neat All-Terrain feel to it.

Posted Image

The finished set.
Posted Image
Prepared to get destroyed by exposed Technic!

I really like the way the curved bone pieces fit around Frakjaw, gives the area a nice smoothness.
Posted Image

The fire is a bit weird to me as it goes up at almost a 45 degree angle.
Posted Image

Frakjaw is truly a madman behind the wheel...
Posted Image
or should I saw weird little lever. At least its something compared to the motorcycle.

Random instruction page.

So that's the end. I would reccommend this just because Frakjaw is such an amazing fig with the hat and red shoulder armour. Nice way to get one of the golden weapons and 2 ninjas.

Nice review Ritz, thanks for sharing! I'm not a fan of NinjaGo but there are some 'few gems' that are quite interesting in this set, particularly Frakjaw's hat and the colored flame piece. I think the gap on Jay's eyebrow is supposed to be a scar, but your Cole seems to have a slight misprint on the eye area.

Hands up for Ritz and his nice review.

Now somethings about this Turbo Shredder... how accurate is this Mini Turbo Shredder I love this 'tiny' version and wonders if someone can review this one too?
