Things we Like About Lego City Volcano Explorers

The volcano on the Exploration Base has a lever which enables you to pop lava rocks up causing an “eruption” this makes for a fun interactive feature. The truck/mobile operations unit is big and rugged looking and it opens up on either side to reveal the inside. The cab area has a crane on the back and there are lots of nice little accessories and attachments to go with it. The whole look of this vehicle has been well thought out and it is a bit different from the usual Lego truck.
We also liked the 6 mini-figures included which have a good balance of male and female characters as well as workers, adventurers and scientists.
The whole volcano and crystal finding scenario of this set makes for lots of creative game play for younger Lego city volcano explorers mini-figures

Common Complaints About this Lego Set

The volcano looks a bit small compared with the monster mobile truck and the rest of the set.

When it was first announced for release in summer 2016 it was tagged at a $120 recommended retail price but we are seeing in excess of $150 at some shops but this price expected to change.

Is This Lego Set Worth The Money?
