LEGO The Ninjago Movie Ice Tank 30427 Set Review for MF0

The Bag
Found this at my local Target hanging out with the Registers.  I know there has been talk about frames with treads or just having tanks in the game in the past; with a set like this I think it serve as a great resource for such things. Let's see what is inside.

The Frame
Can you build some sort of creation right away?

Yes, I stole the set's tread build and tried to get a frame on top. Over all I think it worked out. Learning from some past sets there also might be a Frigate/Spaceship in this set waiting to be built. +5 points

Parts 1
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part.

$3.49 / 71 = $0.05 per part! Under ratio though I feel there might be some concerns about that given the treat pieces but will address that in one of the next questions. +5 points.

Parts 2
If you can't build a creation right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away? 

Hard to say no when a set has taps but not the only useful parts here. +5 points.

Parts 3
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?

Yes, +5 points. Now the tread pieces are a very focused piece and the set has a total of 31 and if you take that from the part count (71) you are still left with 40 pieces which if only used that count for the Golden Ratio than we still be under.

The Set
Total: Another A+ Set and if you are a tank fan could probably just field the set as is!


  1. how do i turn it into the second picture

    1. Sorry so late! I honestly don't remeber but it was pretty simple. The treads are just the treads/base in the instructions than I added the tid bit on top.
