I'm an unashamed adult collector of LEGO toys. While the Ninjago theme didn't particularly appeal to me, I do enjoy a few of the models and some of the unique elements of the sets as well as the minifigures from the previous years Ninjago theme.

I picked this set up on whim and I'm slightly disappointed with it. A tiny ninja on a more than oversized motorcycle looks a bit ridiculous when paired together. The transforming feature wasn't all that interesting (the blades on the sides of the motorcycle move a few centimeters outwards) and the new costume design for the ninja looks too much like the power rangers.

All that being said, I know I'm clearly not the target client for this series so I won't dock down stars. This set has everything younger male LEGO fans will love. Big wheels, a random assortment of weapons, accessories, a treasure/shrine and a hero and a bad guy. If you don't follow the show, this is enough in this set for a creative young mind to have a good time (with some imaginative violence thrown in, of course).

For LEGO collectors and builders, there may be a few elements in this set that may of interest. There are a few red sloped pieces that you can see from the picture and technic pieces if you don't have enough of those. However, if you aren't interested at all in the theme or just by looking at the pictures of this set, this set is worth passing up.

In summary, great for younger kids! They will have blast. Older kids and adults, pass this one up.

As usual, check the LEGO website for the MSRP retail price before buying (especially when buying from third-party sellers) so you don't overpay. I think the retail price is a bit steep but you do get a lot of play elements that will keep a young one quite busy for a while.

Thank you for suggesting looking at the lego.com site to see the M.S.R.P., which was much less than the price at amazon.com! The Lego.com M.S.R.P. is $14.99.
