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.
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.
