Cole DX is a great spinner,and I have a lot to say about him,so I'll divide this review.
This set has great parts,and is one of only four sets that comes with extra parts so you can attach weapons to your spinner.The weapons were great.His spear is dark grey and does excellent in battle.His katana is silver,and Cole DX looks good with it.The Scythe of Quakes is good but the blade and the piece that holds the blade to the stick come off easily.The parts were decent;I like the brown bricks.
Cole DX looks great.He is black with a gold dragon running around his suit,breathing rock.He has Cole written on the back of his suit,though,so his ninja wrap isn't really hiding anything anymore.
The cards included in this set were excellent,or most of them were,anyway.Smoke Screen and Weapon Freeze both could be found in other sets,so they're not exclusive to this set.Weapon Freeze is found 2172 Nya,so it is new.I like Weapon Crazy because it is a card that only Cole DX can use.Cole DX's character card has 500 Earth,200 Fire,300 Ice,and 100 Lightning.
The spinner is amazing.It is red on the bottom and gold on the top.The design is the Earth Emblem with rock and earth all around.Cole DX spins well on it,and it looks great while spinning.
This set is good overall.Besides the scythe coming apart easily,I really don't have anything bad to say about it.I highly recommend it to almost anyone.

the "2170 cole dx" is the best $10 i have ever spent. it comes with cole dx, the scythe of quakes, a grey spear, a grey katana, five trading cards, a spinner, and five lego pieces (not three like the older ones). the spinner is gold on top and red on the bottom.
now onto the five cards:
cole dx: character card
smoke screen: opponent spins with eyes closed
weapon freeze: you choose one of your opponent's weapons to use in battle
boulder barricade: build a brick in front or on top of your minifig
weapon frenzy: build the two hands randomly on spinner, then attach the other two weapons on them.
worth the money
cool new cards give you advantage in game
cool spinner and minifig design
on the box the spear is brown and the katana is silver but in reality they are both grey
the scythe is a disadvantage so you will lose easily
worth the money! but use a different gold weapon instead. buy it!

I got this set at Barnes and Noble, it's pretty cool, but my character card had this production error: it said just "Cole", not "Cole DX". But here's the actual review:
The character card is cool, it's better than the NRG because it has 500 Earth but 1100 total, so that's more than the NRG. He comes with the Scythe of Quakes, pretty cool weapon. His spinner is one of my favorite 2011 ones, since it's gold and red. You have to know that this might have the production error, so watch out. His cards are nice, and Cole himself has awesome dragon decor.
