Staff Review:

One of the more sinister (but understandable, from a marketing perspective, I guess) things that LEGO does is spreading characters across multiple sets, so if you want to build an entire group, you need to buy every set in a series. In larger setups like Star Wars, I get that, or even in Super Hero sets... but for stuff like Scooby Doo and the Hobbit, where the group is the central focus of the story, it's kind of annoying. I'm still not certain that all of the dwarves from the Hobbit were released, but there were like seventeen million different characters in that movie. At least with Scooby Doo, you really only need to buy two sets to complete the gang, the fantastic Mystery Machine set, and this set. Of course, you'd miss some decent bad guys and you have to buy the most expensive set. I was rather indifferent to this...(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.
