My son was very eager to get this particular model. He has had a lot of fun building this and playing with it and although probably destined to be added to all the other spare parts collection made up of previous models, this was a good buy - especially as at the time Amazon has 25% off. Value is always a concern with LEGO but it is consistently good quality and the models interesting and well targetted to their audience. I rarely regret buying LEGO.
As with other LEGO models a degree of frustration for my son as bits fall off when played with (it happens with all complex LEGO models) BUT it has already been well played with - especially in conjunction with the other Ninjago characters we already had.
