Rated 4 out of 5 by captainflash44 LET"S RAID!!!
Very nice set, very nice look, nice figures, nice price, but do not hold it from the brown balloon top!!!! I've done it twice and it fell of of the whole balloon part, and broke. it does have really cool battle features and nice cannon looks, but it's not as roomy as it is in season six of ninjago. but like I said, nice play so maybe get it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jafasque Looks better than it is.
This set has stickers, flag is plastic, balloon is incomplete... And so this set has a lot of minor details that I dont like. Some if not all seem to be what I personally prefer. To me this set basically is last Ninjago set for me. Unless we get in future sets that have good pirate wipe.
Overall largest fail is that I have rebuild this set about 50 times because it seems to fall apart when kids play with it. It looks good. But skyshark seems to be better in my opinion. Characters are fun, but they could need little more pirate feel. Kids love them from videos. Overall its ok set with lots of minor flaws. Its for kids that can play carefully. Or to adults that have lots of patience.
As an Pirate fan.. I loved to see brown cannon. Now I wait those small brown wheels. That I can place under that cannon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BentWright Incomplete Balloon
The primary reason I bought this set was to get the balloon parts in brown. I was disappointed to find that there are only seven balloon parts in this set, and it takes eight to make a complete balloon.
I love the brown trigger pieces on the stud-shooter bricks. I intend to add them to my custom MetalBeard figure/mech.
Zane is sporting a new pearl gold epaulet sword holder. I like the design, but it would have matched better if it was pearl dark gray instead of pearl gold. I would also like to see the ninja get weapon holders that match their weapons of choice, and not always all get katana holders.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Maggie15 I bought this set after viewing season 6 of Ninjago, and I liked the Zeppelin in the show. The set did not disappoint.
Zane- Zane comes in his new Skybound gi. Like the other Ninja's, it has his element dragon/airjitzu symbol on the front. The hood and legs are the same piece as their 2015 Deepstone outfits. However, with a different top, this really does look like a different outfit.
Clancee- Clancee is one of my favourite Sky Pirates from the show. His minifigure is really cool, with the Anacondrai head from early 2015 in a unique green. I think he's also the only Sky Pirate with a wooden leg. The eyes were a bit too small and bad-looking for my liking, as he is a sweet yet scared snake in the show. Still, he's a great minifigure.
Doubloon- Doubloon is also a unique figure. His head is double-sided like in the show. I personally prefer his smiling face, but his fighting/angry face is also pretty cool.
Zane's flyer- I have to say, I was slightly disappointed with this. It's smaller than I expected, and the pieces on the sides/wings are just the old spinner tops. There's nothing in the centre of them, which made me question how that can even fly with large holes in the 'wing' parts. However a little imagination solves that issue.
Raid Zeppelin- the ship itself is pretty decent. The 'air-balloon' style pieces used are very cool. It's a very unique design. There is a small trapdoor/hatch that slides open, to drop dynamite out of, or perhaps to remove the enemy from the ship. The steering wheel is a typical pirate one, making it more authentic. But the computers behind help to add a little modern touch, reminding us that this is set in the high-tech Ninjago world. The main disadvantage of the Zeppelin is the lack of deck space. The figures can barely squeeze on, and there is not much room to stage fight scenes, with Ninja vs Pirates on the ship. However, I have it mainly for display, so that feature does not bother me too much.
Overall, the Zeppelin is a decent set, with a unique yet easy build, and cool minifigures. I would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jose0815 Very Creative and Fun
As the title would show, I feel like this set is really creative and fun. The way LEGO has created the hot air balloon look is very creative. I really like the new mini figs this series has to offer, especially the armor only being on one shoulder. The villains in this series are pretty epic.
I currently have this set flying above my LEGO city on a couple clear stands I stole from my Star Wars droids. Looks awesome! Can't wait for the summer sets!

OH MAH GOD
WHERE DO I START?!?!?!?!!
(lemme chill for a second)
Ok now that I calmed down I'd like to explain why you MUST by this set
(It's your opinion sorry)
Minifigures are ABSOLUTELY AWESOME,Clancey is probably the best out of this set for me...he is so goofy and such a great character..I'd probably ignore this set if he was not in it!
The overall shape and design is really nice on it,I like how they did the balloon part of the ship and how it was connected...it awes me every time I look at it
The main steering wheel and surrounding build is pretty awesome...stickers were well used and it was nice to be added in those areas
The cannons were an awesome edition!!
Lego is finally making it so that a bit fair for villains now
Sadly...even I have to admit this set has cons...
The zeppelin itself has almost no space for battle
A little too many stickers for just this set
Cannons can get in the way
Not a lot of good play features other then the cannons
So this is pretty much my review on this set...oh and I wanna say some extra stuff about the Minifigs
Zane:Same face from Tournament of Elements
Robe has some spots silver coated in blue and flashy dark blue and regular blue and white
Clancey: First snake figure with green colored Anocondrai head
Nice and funny weapon with bucket
Doubloon: First of all...His double sided faces are SOO COOL!!He has such a cool face...its like a samurai mask
His helmet and swords make him look like a sea faring Samurai
Overall this set gets a 8/10 from me
