Staff Review:

I'm going to be honest... I had very little idea what was coming up for the 2017 Marvel lineup outside of Ms. Marvel. In recent years, I've avoided most of the spoiler-y information around sets. There's something nice about wandering into the store, seeing something, and going "wow, that looks cool." It's fairly rare in our modern world of all leaks and spoilers all the time to get something like that. Of course, sometimes that policy ends with Ace laughing at me because I had no idea there was a LEGO Batman Dimensions fun pack featuring Excalibur Batman until yesterday. Literally. This set was one I only knew the name of before it was shown off at Toy Fair, and once I saw the pictures, I knew I was going to buy it just because I wanted an Agent Coulson minifigure. While there's certainly been a lot of movie-to-comic influence in Marvel...(read more)

    Pro: I like the dirty mini figs! Woot.

    Con: I didn't like the build, conveyor belt and the claw doesn't really work that well.

    Comments: I got the set as a bday gift, I wouldn't own the set otherwise. I thought the build was boring. I plan to strip the set down and use it for a MOC in the near future. The dirty mini aliens were my fav plus you get two of them.

    Pros: Great part selection with some rare pieces and colours. Fun play features and a quick, simple build. Just 30 minutes with a 3 year old assisting.

    Cons: The Minifigs are a little too unique IMO. The crane is a bit top heavy and it's winch is a tad too tight.

    Comments: The only reason I bought this sets is because it went on clearance for $25, I'm not a fan of the dirty spots on the figs as it makes them far less usable. At that price it's a great parts pack with a load of useful pieces. My son and I just finished building it and he's been enjoying it all morning and the only problem he's had is with the crane. If they had weighed the bottom down or attached it to the compactor it would be much better. I rated this set a 6, but it would probably have been an 8 if the figures were the normal variety.
