FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 8

Once I layed eyes on this set I knew I was going to get it. It had a nice big size, excellent minifigs and a radical car, what wasn't to love about it?

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 9

The Minifigs are phenominal, the monster is detailed, the scientist is crazy, and the two monster fighters are definite wants. The set also includes a few exclusive pieces, such as a barred up window, a light brick, and two tall scaffoldings (my personal favorite pieces in the set)

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 7

The falling wall, light up brick, and rolling experiment table are amazing play pieces. The tricked out war-car includes two missile launchers which are great parts. There is also a plentiful amount of light up bricks that make it great at night.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 6

I think 50$ is little bit too high. Although I can deal with it due to it's awesome parts.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 6

The theme is one of my personal favorites, though I think it's not as popular as others and gets overlooked.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 6

The set isn't exclusive and can be acquired at any major retailer.

PACKAGING | Score: 7

Box has a nice overview of the set shows off it's lightbrick. It is a nice shape for easy storage

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 6

If lightbricks or monster hunters become popular, this price will raise, as for now, I'm sure the price will be stagnant. 

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 9

It is most certainly a excellent display piece. The set is instantly recognized as Frankenstein and will definitely bring up conversation.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8

This is definitely an amazing set. the awesome design of the figures and set itself is astounding. The playability of the set is most certainly one of the highest considering it's moving pieces and interactive parts. If you have 50$ to spare, pick this set up as soon as possible.
