Presentation From the design of the box to the instruction manual, these are the first things you see before building the set. Here we have a plastic baggie, much like the new HF ones, only much, much smaller. On the front we have a character drawing of Lizaru in the center, with a preview at the parts below. To the bottom right we can see that it's a booster pack for one of the newer Ninjago spinners. And how could we forget the Ninjago and LEGO logos? On the back, we have advertisements for other booster packs, how this booster pack is to be used (don't swallow the bricks kids!), and the legal information. This bag is a little entertaining, but it is very cluttered. Building Half the fun is had building the set. How fun is it to build and how easy or challenging is it? There really isn't much to say here, you build the minifigure and his accesories, then you're done. They are pretty cool though. I really love that golden ax. Set Design Now that the set is complete, we can critique how it looks from every angle. New or interesting pieces can also be examined here. There isn't much design to the set, but it's a set none the less. The Lizaru minifigure is really nicely done. The printing is continued on almost every side of the body, the frond being my favorite (look at that scar!). The scaly look carries over him very nicely. The only bad thing about the figure is the head. It has NO articulation at all. But the eyes and printing somewhat make up for it, however. The only really interesting thing that I found were the trans-light green snake things. They don't really do much, but they look pretty cool. Playability The other half of the fun is in playing with the set. How well does the set function and is it enjoyable to play with? You all probably know how to play with a minifigure, but for those who don't, you grasp it between two fingers and make it hop up and down (to imitate walking) and add in the dialogue. In this case, you pick up the minifigure with his golden ax, and (in the most snake-like voice you can imagine) say something like "imma gonna kill you wit mah golden ax!!!" Final Thoughts Once it's all said and done, how does the set stack up? Should I get it? Pros What's to like? Lizaru!Golden Ax!Trans-light-green snake-things! Cons What's not to like? Not much articulationNot much you can do with the spinner accesories if you don't have a spinner. All in all, pretty good minifigure, pretty good parts, pretty good set.
