It's a fun set for playing with.  You can launch the fist. Run over your ninja enemies and put them in the cages.  Chomp on them with the teeth.

Thanks for the great review. I recently saw this set on clearance (it was still $50 at Target, but $30 at Wal-mart). I didn't realize it retailed for that much more.

I am not too into the Ninjago vehicles, but this thing is monstrous! And you get some cool figures. I already have Zane and Jay separately and I am waiting to get Garmadon eventually. I don't care too much for the skellies.

Very pic intensive review. Much needed for those folks still interested in this set, if they can find it.

Keep it up!

Thanks guys.

$79.99 CAD is the retail price in Canada.  Unfortunately Lego prices are higher in Canada.  It's a better deal to get it on sale if you can.   :classic:

Kids where happy when I found the Skull Truck for 44 euro in the Netherlands. It is being sold in the major stores for a prize of 59-69 euros. Yes, that is about 80 us dollar.

I would rate the set a little higher:

Playability: 9/10  (krunch munch that front!)
Design: 9/10
Price: ?/10 (depending on what you pay, try to get it under 55 euro).
Parts: 7/10
Mini-figures: 8/10 (too much Garmaddons....)
Overall: 9/10
