I know that this isn't a very big or interesting set, but seeing as this is my first review I decided to do something small and simple. The photos are pretty poor, but hopefully you can still see the things in them clearly enough.
Set Number: 2172
Set Name: Nya
Price: UK £7.49, US $9.99
Year of Release: 2011
I've already binned the packaging, so here's he official image. I think it's a nice and eye-catching design.
All the contents of the box. 1 bag of parts (I've sorted them out), 1 information leaflet, 5 cards and 1 spinner.
There's quite a nice selection of parts. The pearl gold blades are made of a softer plastic, and are exclusive to this set.
The more interesting parts are used for the weapons. There's two golden daggers and a brown staff.
It also comes with a few bricks. The red tile and one of the 2x1 bricks make a stand for the cards. I'm not sure what the other parts are for, but I'm sure they'll come in handy.
Seeing as it's such a small set, it comes with just one minifig. It's a very nice minifigure, though. She has only appeared in one other set (Garmadon's Dark Fortress). I really like her sceptical facial expression, and her outfit is nice, too.
She even comes with a dual-sided head. This one has a veil, which will be good for Arabian Dancers and ancient Asian princesses.
The main part of the set (but not the thing I'm interested in). I'd post a video demonstrating it, but I don't know how to make it spin .
The cards are something that some people are interested in collecting, but I don't really care for them. I've kept them in their sealed plastic bag so that I can trade them. There is 5 cards, and the Nya character card is shown here.
There's also a leaflet with information on how to play the Spinnitzu game, and some pictures of the figure.
Build - 1/10. There wasn't really any build.
Parts - 8/10. For a set this small, there's a lot of great parts. The female minifig parts,the golden blades and the black lightsabre hilts are all fantastic. However, I'd have liked it if the bricks were in rarer colours than red and black.
Minifigures - 9/10. I love the minifigure a lot. Her hair, face and torso are all great. I took 1 Mark off though, because I want Oriental styled clothing in a colour other than red.
Playability - 7/10. Although I myself don't know how to work the spinners, I'm guessing that they are quite fun. Some sort of actual build would make it a lot more fun, though.
Overall - 3/5. It's a great set for it's size, target audience and price, but it's not exactly for AFOL's. I got it mainly for the great figure and parts.
I hope that you found this review useful, and that I did everything right. Thanks for viewing!
