A fantastic set , such a shame really it's price isn't too £42 for 408 pieces shows you aren't quite getting youre value for money and so I think to give this one a better price it should cost £35.99.

A little set which only has four figures , a dog , small quad bike and bank costing £8.49 for only 57 pieces. A more appropiate price for these would be £6.49.

For £30 this set does not seem fair as it contains little more than half the required parts so should really cost £20 instead which is actually in the case in some retail storeas already.

In 2010 the previous version took a massive price jump from £32- £39.99. With the newer version having less pieces and being very slightly smaller and costing "£2 more , the price lable is very steep. A more suitible price for this I think would be £35.99.

£12.99 for a ninja, skelenton figures ,a few cards and weapons and several long pieces making a basic flimsy arena. With a total of only 57 pieces the set is very overpriced and should really cost £10.49.

An absolute tiny set for £26 , very few pieces. A few years ago a set like this would only cost around £14.99. Now though it is over £10 more and shows a massive price jump. A much more suitible price now for a set this size would be £21.99.
