Just my two cents on a few of the new sets. 71750 Lloyd's Hydro Mech
I like the asymmetrical design o fit and another colour scheme than the average yellow for an underwater mech is nice. But I do not think that I will buy it. Mostly because I have already a few mechs and even those I do not use much.
71753 Kai’s Fire Dragon I like the idea of an updated version of the fire dragon, and I have hoped that I would like the official pictures. But I do not like the proportions of the body therefore I will probably not buy it.
71754 Water Dragon I really like the official pictures of the water dragon. With the more muscular head I head a picture in my head where Nya is asking Jay: “Do you think that I’m now looking like a beautiful SCHMETTERLING?” I’m not sure if I will pick the dragon up, but mostly because I maybe will not have enough space to store it.
71755 Temple of the Endless Sea I do not like the temple. I can see what the designer were intended to do, but I think that whether Wojira nor the temple buildings are a proper representation of the show’s equivalents. I would have liked to see a full Wojira or a full temple build. But I like the selection of minifigures. Especially Benthomaar is great, but I also like the Glutinous minifigure, but I would have like him more with the monocle on his eye.
71756 Hydro Bounty This is definitely the best set of the wave for me. I love everything on it. The design, the colour scheme. The Bounty gives me a strong FXG / Jules Verne vibe. We get also all the ninja in the set. The submarine pods can be stored inside the bounty which I really like. But I do not know if I will store them there. Maybe I will remove them and build a bedroom, laboratory, and kitchen inside for more playability. I also love the manta carriage with Kalmaar(i).
Overall, I really like this season's sets, even when the prices have been increased. But in the end, I will probably only buy the Bounty and maybe the Water Dragon but mostly because I do not have enough space for all the sets.
