Product Description

Product Description

Grab every crystal before the rock monsters do! Hungry rock monsters are on the loose, gobbling up crystals and causing havoc underground. Unleash the Crystal Sweeper and get them first! This massive mining vehicle spins its auto-rotating harvester wheel to collect a huge cargo of crystals and drop them into its rear-mounted bucket. Use the side-mounted laser crane to drill through rock, or deploy the motorcycle and ramp for emergency escapes and rescues. Just watch out for the monsters and their double-launching catapult!

I just got this for my son. It took us a little over an hour to put it together. Pros: 2 rock monsters, 2 miners, a catapult for the Rock monsters. Crystals, a dirt bike, which is located on the sweeper, and 2 dynamites. It holds rather well. There aren't too many pieces to knock off accidentally.
Cons: One has to remove the top of the cabin in order to get the marine in or out. Sweeper functions well on flat surfaces, however, I wouldn't recommend using it on carpet, which the sweeper tends to slide and it won't function properly. Crystals are easy to lose (as it usual with small Lego parts). Would be much better if the rock monsters had vehicles also.

Overall, it is a lot of fun. He is certainly looking forward to add more Power Miners to his collection. Worth the value.

Though we are big LEGO fans, and have a houseful of them, this set is only good for display. The actions shown on the box cannot happen because the toy breaks as soon as you try to move it. You can make your own creations with it, and the rock monster is cool, and collectible, but the set is a disappointment. Thunder Driller and Claw Digger are much better.

A Kid's Review on September 24, 2009
I am 6 years old and I think the Crystal Sweeper is the worst toy ever. (Mom is typing this and she would have to say it's not the WORST toy ever; he's just really disappointed. The whole reason he wanted it was because it would sweep crystals into the bucket -- hence the name.) The crystals don't sweep into the bucket. The rock monsters don't sweep into the bucket. (They really don't.) The things I like about it are the laptop, the minifigures, and all the machinery. Oh, and I like the banana. But I'm going to try making it into something else that really works.

I'm not sure why my 5 year old loves the Power Miners, but he does. He received this as a gift a few weeks ago.

He needed a little help to put the turbine and things together, but he built the rest by himself. I found the "sweeper" part of the rig didn't always sweep properly. It seemed reliant on the proper positioning of two gears on one side of the toy, along with a ramp-like contraption being in *just* the right place. Even the slight misalignment of any of these would make the turbine either stick or spin ineffectively.

That said, he played with it for quite a while and it stood up well. He's since disassembled it and combined it with another set to make something he calls a "Crystal Crawler." I do like how there are instructions on the website to make new toys with the existing sets.

Overall I'd say this is a hit for LEGO, even if I don't entirely understand the allure.

Bought this even though the reviews said it did not pick up well. This was number one on my 6 year olds list. They put it together and when I asked them how well it worked they said great! But they modified it somehow. Said they took a little part off that was getting in the way of picking up stuff.

Our 6 year old grandson saw the Lego Power Miner Crystal Sweeper on youtube and asked for it for his birthday. It seemed expensive but based on the complexity and number of pieces it probably fits Legos pricing scheme. My grandson and I probably put 8 hours into the assembly. He is pretty good for a 6 year old but adult participation was a must. When we completed assembly the sweeper did not work. I think we did the assembly exactly according to the manual. We had to change it a bit in order to get the sweeper gear to engage properly. But when we finally got the sweeper to pickup the crystals he was sooo excited. He has continued to play with it.

we got this set in a Lego lot online, luckily, most of the pieces were there and we managed to build it with some spares here and there... we really like this set, it is now part of our collection of Lego power miner vehicles... the turbine really spins, and it has a neat drill on it too... but there are down falls, the turbine does not sweep, unless, it is at a specific speed... it can sweep rock monsters, sometimes... also, its control cabin can break off from the base as well... it is awesome to play with, and does great with the other power miner sets! we do wish it was less expensive on the current market though... this is a great toy, not really built for rough play, but a great buy for Lego collectors...

My nine year old grandson is fascinated with Legos and the Power Miner series is really an imaginative addition to their product line. He and his best buddy have spent hours constructing and playing with various sets but this one is his hands down favorite. It's an investment well worth the money as the value of learning to follow directions coupled with the imaginative rebuilds he comes up with make this an effortless learning experience.
