After 10 hours spent across 5 days, I finally completed the build and here is my review on 71741 Ninjago City Gardens: THE GOOD: LOOKS STUNNING!!! Massive volume, for me the side temple feels like more of a bonus. Lots of new ways to create awesome details in various areas. The fully working arcade is just brilliant. The dragon skeleton display and the skylight are also great design. 18 minifigures!!! (20 if you include the 2 decorative ones) THE NOT SO GOOD: Some of the parts (e.g. the cover sewage pipe) doesn't connect well. The instruction booklet has some steps which make the build a bit more difficult than it should. Some components a bit flimsy to be removed while the 2nd level path way is a bit too tight for removal. Overall, this is another contender for set of the year. It looks absolutely stunning. And I love all the little details they put into each components, from the tree to outdoor air con but highlight for me is definitely the minifig scale working Arcade. I also love the minifigures selection, although I do think fans following the TV series will probably appreciate the minifigures more. Many of the shops can easily modified to a typical Lego City store. The temple also great even on its own, it's truly a bonus side build which I will be extremely happy already even without it. It is pricey but consider the volume (factor in it's also cheaper than the previous incarnation with more volumes), it's actually very competitive pricing too. Can't wait to see what's LEGO is cooking up next for similar set =). While this is not perfect (there are some flimsy parts and parts doesn't connect so well), I am extremely satisfied with the end results and totally recommend this set for everyone.
