5.0 out of 5 stars Pricey, but worth it, April 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These 6 figures were a little pricey, but I think they were well worth it. My nephew is really into the Ninjago cartoon series on Netflix and I wanted to surprise him by getting him some of the Lego minifigures for his birthday. I initially bought him about 80 of the knock-off lego Ninjago minifigures from ebay, but since they shipped from China I was afraid he wouldn't receive them in time for his birthday. Not wanting to come to his party empty-handed, I decided to buy these figures off Amazon as well because they were guaranteed to arrive within 2 days. As luck would have it, both the lot of 80 knock-offs I got from ebay as well as these legit Ninjago figures arrived just in time.

It took me almost 3 hours to assemble the knock-offs for my nephew and when I unveiled them to him I was expecting his 4 year-old mind to be blown to pieces, but he was like... meh. The next day I gave him this set of 6 figures and he loved it so much more than the knock-offs. Somehow this kid could tell the real figures from the fake ones. As an adult you can feel that the legit toys are made of more durable plastic, have stiffer joints, and the paint is applied much better but I don't know how even my 4 year old nephew was able to tell these figures apart from the knock-offs. The set itself is fantastic. It comes with all of the main characters from the cartoon series and even includes each of the characters' unique weapons. If you're buying these for a child that is a fan of the show, I highly recommend this set. All 6 of these characters are not included in any other set and kids, especially the younger ones, just love the minifigures and don't really care for the sets of blocks that you would be stuck with if you chose to buy these figures separately.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works great, some trouble setting up, June 22, 2014

Hey AOC, have you heard that CD-ROMs are becoming a dead medium and that laptops are now coming without a CD drive? How about catapulting with the times and put your drivers online so people can just download it? And if you already have it online then please put it in a more obvious place because I could not find it.

Other than that, love the product!

4.0 out of 5 stars works well, feels somewhat cheap but serves its purpose, June 22, 2014

We bought another samsonite spinner of the same size but the zippers and latches felt like they were made better than this one. Not a biggie because it still serves its purpose.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written, no imagination, a HUGE disappointment and waste of time, June 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Addicted: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
HOW in the world did this book get such high ratings? I heard about this book, or rather the movie on E! News and did a bit of research to find that there was a book the movie was based off of. What a terrible decision I made. I can't even get past page 168 - not because of some tragic or suspenseful event but only because it was sooooo mind-numbingly boring!

First off, the description of this book compares itself to 50 Shades of Grey. I'd have to say it could not be further from the truth. Granted both books are just erotic novels and were not probably written to win some sort of nobel prize but come on! Have some imagination...or a better vocabulary. I felt like I was reading a book written for 5th graders.

Second and finally (do you need more than 2 justifications that a book is bad?), this book lacks all common and realistic sense. The main character is an idiot. You read about her POV from when she was in elementary school to when she's a grown up woman and she literally has not progressed in her intelligence or the way she speaks. She still sounds illiterate and continues to make bad decisions but yet somehow, she's able to become this successful business woman from selling...get this...calendars.

Bottom line, if you're looking for something to hold you over because you finished 50 shades and can't wait for the movie to come out so you can finally be reunited with Christian Grey (jk), then look ELSEWHERE because this book will NOT deliver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read, November 23, 2010
Only half way through the book but love what I've read thus far. Steve Dixon gives a detailed insight on what police work is all about--the good, the bad, and the ugly. His recounts are in first person so you get a front-seat, ride-along feel for all his cases. If you're looking for a book that glamorizes police work and paints a perfect picture of police officers, this is not the book you want. This book reveals the truth about what police work is really like and the politics behind the scene. The people are real and his stories are real. It will definitely give you a deeper appreciation for those that serve and protect us. It will also open your eyes to those that wear the same uniform but disregard our safety for their own.

Overall, two thumbs up!
