a bit extreme in sizei'm really thinking there needs to be a size and price cap on city sets. around $100 in price with a comparable parts count. this is a set where the mammoth is the prize. that's what most people look at this set and want. the designer could've easily removed the circular saw and cargo sleds from this set, added a couple more hand saws, and probably been close to the $100 mark. a perfect parts count and price range for a growing lego collection for two boys (3 counting me) in a average sized house. i understand this is a business, but i'd gladly bought two of these sets for two mammoths at a better set size and price.
the front two units are pretty cool and make for some fun play (even acting as a sandcrawler for some jawas), and the mammoth has been used with ninjago, as a bantha for some tusken raiders, and as cavemen and t-rex food.
the rear two units (the saw and cargo rig) were built and destroyed within two days.
the ice cave is pretty cool. I think it'll be one of those side builds that finds it's way to the lego shelf for quick access for play time.
so in closing; some of this set feels like a waste but if 'ya want a mammoth it's about the only way. and, please, designers and decision makers, try to set a max goal of $100 worth of build for large city sets. preferably less for sets with much desired pre-formed animals so multiples can be bought.

Fabulous set!Great selection of minifigures, a variety of vehicles, and a mammoth! I consider this the best set of the Arctic theme. Assembling a set this size into a long “train” is quite large and impressive.
Two minor issues: it is difficult to turn the crane vehicle while rolling because of its length and/or six wheels, and the mobile laboratory lacks stairs or a ladder to the entrance (just use your imagination).
Not inexpensive, but I would get this large set instead of multiple smaller sets.

This set is so cool!This set is awesome for play experience! I have no complaints about this set. The mammoth is super cool and how it all gets pulled around is so cool! Well there is on problem and that is the price! It is way over priced!

Great ideaBuild was relatively easy my son did struggle a bit but I helped on the technical stuff.
Really interesting design and the colors look amazing when its built.
As for playability have had great fun with my son playing out scenarios but have noticed when you connect them all together they don't follow each other well but apart from that great set
