A special Lego setPrior to the release of TLNM I had only a passing interest in the Ninjago line as neither of my children ever spoke of it much. However, the closer we got to the movie release, we started getting caught up on all the episodes via Netflix. Once I saw the first wave of sets to accompany the movie I knew Lego had some special on their hands. Destiny's Bounty is something else here, with a very satisfying build that will leave you smiling as you work your way through every little detail.
I felt bad for my wife as I was calling her over time and again to see some little feature (such as the bed or bathroom area). It must have been hard for her to distinguish between our children (8, 5, and now 3 month old) or her 37 year old child er, husband.
I generally only have a little time each night to build, so I'm on the one bag per night plan so this took me longer than I would have liked, because as I was working my way through the hull and building up, it was not easy to put down and go to bed.
I proudly display this piece on my mantle and have received more than a few complements from people in that time (house guests, handyman, furniture movers, etc). The purchase of this led to the acquisition of several more TLNM sets - Ninjago City and a few mechs. Already looking forward to summer sets, and now that I'm all caught up on back episodes, I'm ready for new season of the show as well.

A phenomenal and Fantastic Set for All Lego FansI received this set as a Christmas gift and have just finished it over the weekend. I don’t really know what to say other than... WOW! This set is absolutely AMAZING! I’ve been building Lego for only a year but I love the creativity of these sets.
There are so many little things that were delightful discoveries as I went along, like the bathroom with the little gold sink taps & toilet flush button. The bed is also an amazing piece! It might sound crazy to get all excited over a bed and bathroom but the detail just blows me away!
I kind of hate to say it but, as much as I adore my Lego Creator Parisian Restaurant modular which has a similar piece count, this set was even more of a delight to build. The Parisian Restaurant was a bit more linear and straightforward as it’s a building. However, the curves, flourishes, and little details on the Ninjago Movie Destiny’s Bounty were a challenge which I greatly enjoyed.
To put things in prospective a bit, I am visually impaired to the point that I cannot read print unless it’s enlarged. Even then it’s an inefficient, tedious process. However, the picture instructions Lego uses are fantastic and I always end up figuring them out in the end even if I have to take a break and come back later. I thank Lego for putting all their instructions online so I can download them to my iPad and view them as close up and zoom in and out as I need.
With my eyesight, this set took me likely 20 or more hours to build, not counting breaks. I know I spent at least two full days from waking to sleeping on this. To put it in prospective, I worked on this set last Friday from about 9:00 AM to 10:00 PM with few breaks and that only got me through bags 8-12. Other sessions were in three or four hour blocks some afternoons and evenings between starting a new semester and getting into the routine of psychology and applied ethics coursework. I started the ship on January 1st or so and just finished it Saturday. I’ll say again, in the most emphatic way I can, IT WAS WORTH IT!
Some people might have problems with the fact a bunch of plastic could cost so much money. However, I do not belong to that camp. This is something that can bring immeasurable enjoyment to kids and adults alike. Lego sets can be made in so many different ways. It’s better than spending $200 on some fancy toy for your kid that never changes and that goes out of style/becomes obsolete by next season. I see Lego bricks as timeless and clasic in a way that’s only achieved by a handful of toys. YOu can spend $160 eating out an expensive restaurant, a hotel room for a weekend getaway, or a day at the amusement park for a family if you’re lucky. You can’t even keep those outside of your memories and souvenirs you shell out more money for. Lego provides memories and is a tangible thing that lasts. That in mind this, and all other, lego sets I have purchased or received as gifts are ALWAYS worth the money.
Thank you, Lego, for doing such great work and creating something beautiful that can so positively effect the lives of people of all ages.
Note: I’ve attached a couple pictures of the completed product. My apologies if the angles are a bit funky as I took them myself.

2295 pieces of perfectionWell...this set is just beautiful. Since I saw the release of the set I knew I couldn’t not get get it and when I saw it in Smyths Toys for £74.99 it quickly became mine.
There are so many bits about this I just love, for example the almost modular style in effect with the ability to remove levels easily to get to the bottom. I also really liked that all 6 ninjas and Master Wu was included in this set, I mean it was almost garunteed to happen though it doesn’t make it any less important. This is just a thing of beauty really. I do feel it has made such an improvement on the last Destiny’s Bounty (70738) which in a way was somewhat expected because Lego is pushing the boundaries with the pieces and creating more bigger and better sets than ever though as said earlier this I feel is important too.
With all pros there’s cons, but very few in this set. My only problem with this is the fragility of the fragon heads at the front and the lanterns along the side which means when I move it or pick it up the heads in particular have a tendency to fall off. Though that is Lego, it’s almost made to fall apart though as a self proclaimed AFOL I would of preferred it if they had a little more structure to reduce the chances of them breaking. These side notes are nothing more than a little constructive (pardon the pun) criticism which I guess is why we are able to review sets in order to expand the ever growing brand of Lego.
So all in all I think this is probably one of the best sets released in 2017, a good piece count, nice amount of Minifigures and the toilet roll was a nice little addition too.

Superb Lego ShipI've owned several Lego ships in the past, but this one by far is one of the most pleasing to the eye. It's by no means the biggest, but the shape, the layout, the colours and details, down to the stickers used for decor, are all so pleasing.
The build took me around 6 hours and features some fun little building techniques. Little things like the signage on the back of the ship, chimneys/pipes, foliage growing on board and bunting hanging between the masts make the ship a visual treat.
Unlike the other ships, it has no front mast (much like a traditional Chinese Junk ship) and took a while to get used to the stubbier-wide design with the dragon heads, but the overall look and details of the ship make up for this.
I recently bought the Silent Mary from Pirates of the Caribbean, and whilst I like that set, for less money Destiny's Bounty is so much more.
