Excellent Set With Varied Content.If you only buy one of the Jungle themed sets, make it this one - it has everything!
You really are getting the best of all the other sets put together - an amphibious six-wheeled buggy, a larger Land Rover with a motorbike on the back; a float-landing helicopter, one of the new kayaks, the new snapping plant, a fantastic leopard, a crocodile, and a crashed plane and temple site to explore. The models use the bright yellow-orange colour introduced in the Chima sets rather than the normal LEGO yellow, and look excellent in the jungle envrionment.
Play features include a trap door in the temple, a hidden cave for the leopard, a cargo winch on the helicopter and a removable roof on the Land Rover with lab equipment inside. And the plant is rigged with an elastic band to snap shut.
The only disappointment is the leopard is not quite as cool as the tiger in the Air-Drop set, and the crashed plane has uneven wing parts, leaving you without a matched pair of wings to build alternate models. However, the parts and models it does contain more than make up for any such shortcomings.

BrilliantI love this new theme especially the fact that there're 3 big cat figures in the entire range. Similar themes like the City Forest, the police station had a bear but I think it was the only set in the range that came with one.
I do agree with the previous review though there isn't much space for all the Minifigures in the vehicles. I think I'll modify mine to accommodate the Minifigures.
Over all fantastic theme.

Everything fits perfectly, easy to follow the instructions, a lot of spare parts. Lots of playing time as well, and like the way it looks real.

Great setThe set is great in general, but I feel Lego could have made a helicopter and or more room in the big truck to pose minifigures. Also it could have had some bushes for play.
