    Any reason to be personal? Or why you overreact so much? Its almost like u did the set and the critique is on you 😀 Calm down. Everyone here has a right to say his/her opinion even though you dont like it. And if you havent noticed this “bitching” are just replies to other members.

    No. Every floor and place in NC and NCD is accesible. And it took nothing from overall design. Instead of making small pagoda or whatever they (designer) could pay more effort on logic. Its clear that he doesnt put enough thoughts to the set as was put by design team to the original two sets before. This is not only for kids you know 😀 How many kids can effort such a big and expensive set? Many of the easter eggs are ment for AFOLs or true Ninjago fans. Small kids will probably never notice them. Anyway its funny how many people here just protecting and defending the set without any critique. Just pure consumers... More, more, more, we will take whatever you (Lego) serve...lol. If u like it, I respect it and wish you good times with it. Enjoy the build, enjoy the set and be happy. :)

    True. BUT! Every previous NC itteration has access to every place. Why this one doesnt? Its not “nitpicky complaint”. For the set as large and as expensive like this I would wxpect some complexity and well thought design. Not just shiny new colours and pieces.

    You are right. There are many design flaws...

    Of course you can.

    Yeah new shiny parts and colours... but NC is far more superior and briliantly executed and well thought compared to the NCG. NCG is just shiny newer bigger parts pack :) Pretty but dull.

    Considering that NC is 3 yrs old and NCG uses many new parts and molds, there aren't so many details and variety compare to the original NC... Its more airy, since the middle part is empty and there is a tree growing through the first floor, so it makes a small square in the Old world. so plenty of space for plants, and small touches such as bench, but still. Not so much in compare to the NC. Just a little bit which is understandable since its 3 yrs "newer" :)

    Original NC and camera unfriendly angle? U mean backside? I dont consider that as a camera unfirendly angle. But I guess that this is more subjective. Its not about number of presents we get (or not get) its about logic and thoughts put into a complex set like this. Imagine you are a kid/or youngster or even AFOL and buy this set. Its your first introduction to the "NC line" since you dont have previous sets and they cost all the money nowdays. This is not complete. Not at all. Thats is the problem I have. It is amazing by the look for sure. It will look nice on the shelf (u need to find a really big one), and maybe kids dont care much about ladders/stairs or other things I mentioned above, but some of them do. As a playset, its really hard to remove and put on all individual modules (and there are many of them) so its not a strictly playset. But its for reasonable price (compare to the other recent D2C sets) so maybe its not only for AFOLS or kids with rich parents :) I think that you get my point now right? Certainly it looks beautiful, no doubt about that. But if I look close, i see those fails and design flaws, and I dont want them to be seen. But as would Sheldon say "I know about them". And thats what bothers me. To sum up - nice looking colorful set, with many design flaws and logical mistakes or omisions. As a standalone set it doesnt work. I would not recomend it as a start for NC. Original one was 1000x better. Thats me.

    figuratively... you know what I ment by that.

    The more I look at NCG the more ambivalent opinions I have. So many illogical things. For example: 1. how can you get from the ground floor to the Ninjago fan apartment above the food shop? 2. why is Ronin pawn shop open at the back? What is the point of those doors? 3. why is that ladder to the tea time balcony above the bust with hat? Anyone who want to go up need to climb through that thingy.. 4. any chance to get from old city to the street level beside using that flying scooter? 5. How can I reach that secret room where Jay's ninja costume is hidden? No doors no ladder... 6. where is that control room with computer etc. in tower? Is it that "Ninja zone"? It was advertised separately so it confuses me... 7. no boat (but thats just me...) 8. to get to the Zen garden on rooftop (Hig rise) you need to climb from that balcony between green apartment and Ninjago museum of history? Is this the only way? Very dangerous then...(for ordinary citizens obviously)... and there is more (...) On one side I can clearly see love and passion of the design team in the set, but at the same time its just bunch of chaotic mismatch and not logical structures mixed together... I l consider original NC as a best set and certainly better than this. Sorry...

    Too much considering and predjudices. Maybe they just need/want attention. I am not sure how bad "scum" word is in your country but where I come from, its really rude. I think, following rules of this community that "we" can avoid to use such words to mark other people right? Slap yourself and be nice :)

    C'mon, "scum" is it really necessary? :)
