MEMBER OWNS SET: YES MEMBER HAS BUILT SET: YES
FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 10
Very attractive and colorful packaging. Colorful and lots of things going on for the $19.99 price point.
UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 8
Manbat and nightwing (with new design and color) I beleive are new to this set. 3 minifigures is standard these days for $20 sets.
PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 9
The build was easy. The best part of the build was making Nightwings Glider. The Batman chopper was great build too with a new design.
VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 9
Not so Bang for the buck at $20. But would be if one can try to get it at 15% discoiunt. It will go down later when amazon or other retailers have sales. A $16 pricepoint if it can be purchased during sales is a great price IMO. The minigis let alone shour be $12-$15 at $4 or $5 a pop/
THEME POPULARITY | Score: 10
Very popular theme given the current superheroes craze and TV shows.
EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 7
Can be found at walmart and other retailers. I found mine at Walmart.
PACKAGING | Score: 9
Looks like the new theme for sets is more colorful and cartoonish, which I like. It makes the set more marketable and attactive to buyers. Like they say "cant judge a book by its cover.. bu sure can judge a LEGO box by its cover'.
GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 8
I see this set gaining long term growth due to nightwing being in there. The new design of the bat chopper will also propell its growth. Lastly what set is worth getting without a bad guy. And this set has it all. The ugliest looking manbat on the planet. It gives a reason to love hating the evil guy.
DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 8
The Nightwing glider has great display quality. Also the new Bat chopper is sleek. The manbat...lets leave it at that. Overall the display quality of the chopper and nightwing gives it a thunbs up. It won't be a conversation starter to pick up a date, but sure will start a conversation with another lego fanatic.
CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8
My analysis is that this set is a definite buy. It has some unique minifigs and a newly designed bat chopper. I will be looking out for these on sale or clearance, which might be a while but worth the wait.
