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!

Too bad it doesn't work well in carpet.
Goofy Goober
It took me a long time to build it - more than a half hour!

It's definitely a must-buy for any Power Miner's fan.

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.

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.

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.

I am writing for my 7-year-old grandson: This is the best toy I've ever had. It is very good at functioning. The rock monster catapult is cool. I like the laptop that the professor has. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't do well on carpet. I like the little side motorcycle. I like the titanium drill on the side. It took me a long time to build it - more than a half hour! I recommend it!

I am nine and very good at putting legos together, this took ALOT of time and when I was done, I couldnt even play with it and then it fell apart so I dedided to take it apart and try again! I put glue on the wheels to try and keep them on, the problem is, you can't PLAY with this toy, the rock monsters and crystals and figures are fun, the sweeper part doesn't really put the rockmonsters and crystals in the container its ok but you may not want to get this toy.
