Rated 3 out of 5 by Ticia How Difficult it is to keep together
The good guy is hard to keep together. The bad guy is not. you don't want to put him in a bag because he will fall apart.
The top can swing open for the bad guy, and it has two hidden missiles and can hold 3 people.
The good guy has a cannon.
My 9 year old son's review of the set.
I'd add, like the other Lego Movie sets it's got a fair degree of difficulty for elementary aged kids to put together. As he said the Pirate robot tends to fall apart fairly easily, but it can be put back together fairly easily and hasn't been as upsetting in play as the other set we received for their birthday present.

Rated 4 out of 5 by budgetbooks Steampunk much?
This was a great set! I'm glad I paid the money to buy this! I love how there is so much detail packed into it. With all the pirate/Victorian style late-17th century looks, it appeared very steam punk-like. And it made my day when I saw the steam pipe on it. One thing I do not appreciate about the set is the sword. I am unaware why lego keeps doing this to the lego ninjago mechs, but they don't really have a secure way to hold the sword. Ok for stop motions, but the sword makes the play itself very incompatible. Still a great set if you're willing to modify the hand to fit better with the sword.

Rated 5 out of 5 by djrhino10 great set with one not so good feature
I am so glad I decided to buy MetalBeard's duel. This comes with an awesome Micro Manager and an even better MetalBeard. It also includes a construction worker, Skeletron, and Robo Swat. You can even put the Robo Swat inside the Micro Manager. MetalBeard's cannons can shoot far. MetalBeard even includes a cool sword. You can connect MetalBeard's cannon ammo to the steering wheel. The shark on MetalBeard's arm has an opening mouth. The only bad feature of this set is that the cannon ammo falls out of MetalBeard's cannons a lot. Overall, this is a cool set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pygon001 Satisfying
I still put together the micromanager and the mini figures, but the star of the set is Metalbeard himself. Even though he isn't as posable as I had hoped, he can still accept a wide range of stances. The hilt of the sword tends to drop off from time to time, the hand doesn't close over it very elegantly, and I wouldn't consider this a figure that can be used heavily for playtime. Despite these minor quibbles, seeing the figure sitting on my desk at work makes me smile and has elicited more than one conversation (all good).

Rated 4 out of 5 by DarthSauron88 Metal Beard
I am back with another review. It is the first lego movie review. Lets dive right in. Let us start with the mini figures which is the weakest part. You get to cool robots and the worst character from the Lego Movie, Frank the Foreman. He is a nice figure but I don't like him. Now onto the micro manager. He is really cool but ugh he is hard to stand up. Now onto Metal Beard. He is the reason I got this set. He has a lot of cool pieces but parts of him fall off. So now onto the final verdict
So overall I give this set a

Rated 5 out of 5 by Halcut Everything is awesome about MetalBeard
Fantastic steampunk robot pirate mech. Stable construction. It's fun just to look at it. The details really entertain. What robot pirate would be complete without binoculars, a pistol, an enormous sword, a wooden leg constructed of a barrel and a cannonball, not to mention a ship captain's wheel, a full-size shark, a treasure chest, two banners and a metal parrot perched on top? Also love the evil MicroManager. The joke's not lost on me. Great sense of humor in this set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chibi Nice set
Really enjoy all the attention to details in this set. We had to get it to go with all of our other Lego pirate stuff.
Set is a relaxing build, with no painfully difficult parts. They all fit nicely and the characters are very neat looking. Can't wait to see them in the movie!
Only thing I can see as an issue is some of the joints may wear out after excessive/hard play... However they are made to be played with so let them enjoy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DogintheKitchen Great LEGO Toy!
This lego set was great! I loved the detail, it was challenging yet simple to build, People of all ages will enjoy this great set.
The only thing I would have to complain about (If anything!) is that the sword is difficult to hold, it's dropped a lot and is really frustrating for a brickfilmer as myself. Also, the body parts have a difficult time moving and is pretty sketchy for those of you who brickfilm.
I would recommend this product to anyone!
