Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaker1001 Awesome build and value.
This set is on some heavy discounts, which is what spurred me to purchase a set outside of the usual super heroes and star wars lines. I think Ninjago does not get enough love from the adult fan community simply because it is not licensed. Ninjago in general has consistently given us some amazing builds, unique pieces, and great value even at MSRP.
This set is no exception. There are quite a few unique parts and colors that I can not wait to incorporate into my own builds. While some feel that unique parts or colors limit possibilities, I feel it challenges me to expand my range of building. There is a gold pieces that connects the shurikens that, while not meant to be a piece, will be a great decoration part. In addition, the ways they build the mechs provides great instruction for how to add stability to my own. Previously I had always had trouble with waist articulation, but they have found a novel and effective way to solve this.
The builds are highly detailed, and will look great on display. The little harpoon works perfectly in this instance. There have been cases in other sets where they have had trouble, but I have found it to be a great play feature, even for me as an adult.
The con is how stiff the translucent pieces can be. The heads stick to their head pieces with too much clutch power. The female ghost I can not remove her head from her hat at all. I feel like Zanes mech could have used a little more detail in the back, but I can forgive this considering the parts count, and it is nowhere near as sparse as the back of the giant Ant Man fig.
Great parts in unique colors
Great techniques used in the build to learn from
Heads stick to hats
No knee articulation
Few back details for Zane's mech

Titan Mech Battle is a good set that I would certainly recommend to any mech collector. The set comes with Zane's Titan Mech and the infamous ghost mech. A spring-loaded shooter and part of Nya's Samurai X cave are also included. The two mechs greatly differ in size with the mech-en-stein turning out gigantic and the titan mech turing out a bit smaller. Their fighting styles are also very different with the mech-en-stiein using 4 long swords and the titan mech using a more slashing motion. That's about all there is to say, so overall, the mechs are great builds (but aren't that compatible if you want to battle them) and the minifigs are good, especially deepstone Zane.

I like all the moving parts. It has lots of launchers. It was my first Ninjago set. The swords swung.

I have been waiting for a set like this for a while. The price of this set is amazing, for two giant mechs and two little other builds. All Ninjago and mech fans this is the set for you. First of all the minifigures are fantastic, zane is exclusive to this set in his new deep stone outfit, Nya is samurai x, Jay has a deep stone out fit (he appears in 4 sets) Goultar is also in this set with a new ghost tail, and last but not least is Bansha who has a trans green head with a ghost blade. Second of all there is a samurai x cave which is a small build that houses Zane's airoblade, and there also is a grappeling hook shooter, that shoots. Then there are two giant mechs. The ghost mech has four arms and has a cockpit where a minifig can stand. In Zane's mech there are two stud shooters which are nice variety's and there is a posable head. Zane sits in the mech. Unfortunaetly there are no knee joints which make the mechs less posable but still great. As usual there are two skreemers who are attachable to minifigure heads. Overall to grandparents, parents and relatives this set is a great birthday present, not two expensive but not that cheap.

Ever since it came out i have always been a ninjago fan. The mini figures, the story, and the vehicles. it was only natural for me to get the titan mech battle, due to being a zane fan. but this set has so much more to offer! lets dive in.
easily my favourite ninja, this set is the cheapest way to get this, obsidian zane? i watched the tv series an these suits are supposed to be made out of rock from the bottom of the ocean (so is the shurikan, water kills ghosts in the ninjago universe) . the new hood piece i would complain is a bit to much like the season 2 hood, if it wasn't hard to think of a new hood after ninjago rebooted. he is very detailed, with his new insigna that was also featured in/on his airjitzu flyer. He has the same head of the titanium ninja, witch is good because that is a very detailed and very nice head.
i can't really say anything different about jay, because he is pretty much a colour-swapped zane. but he does look nice. the blue really compliments the black. and his nun chucks are (slightly) more realistic with the lightsaber hilts.
this mini figure looks almost exactly like the nya from the ninja DB-X, but is still a good mini figure none the less. the mask-head-googles-thing looks more accurate to then tv series in season 2 when samurai x's identity was still a mystery. when i say mystery, i mean you just had to look at the eyes and you could tell it was nya. the googles the look great, and make the helmet look more technological.
this mini figure looks very creepy from the end of tip of his new moulded ghost bottom, to the end of his scythe. but that also brings my biggest complaint: he can't stand upright. His tail doesn't offer any support from the from, which is what you WANT when you're holding a huge scythe an you're trying to do a cool pose. you can use a mini figure stand or use his scythe for support, but thats just a bad sprinkle on an otherwise delicious cake.
I first thought this was a possessed nya, but is just your typical ninjago bad guy. or bad gal? on subject though, her armour is the same as possessed lloyd, just re-colored. but bash makes it look great with the colour scheme that matches her mech.
I won't review the harpoon and cave, because they're pretty self explanatory, but i will go into the…
Zanes titan mech.
this is a very good mech, and surprisingly possible too. there is no knee articulation, but the mech makes up for that. the 'head' is very well done, with a pony tail sword that zane can use outside of his mech. there is also 2 stud shooters, which lego seems to use a lot now. the two spinner crowns also rotate, making it look a bit cooler. i love the assassins creed like bases on the mech. very ninja like. unfortuneantly, this veichle has an exposed cockpit, making it very easy for somebody to shoot zane in the noggin.
What a fitting name! its very creative and can give someone a good chuckle. in the tv series, mech-instein is a possessed samurai x mech, explaining the similarities. the 4 arms look very cool and look like SPOILER ALERT, lord garmadons mech from the final battle. this is a cool remix of nya's iconic mech, with the cowcatcher shoulders and the bat winged helmet. but like the zane mech, this has an exposed cock pit. but this time, the legs are exposed. there is only some spider leg things holding bash in there. but, this is not a glow-in-the-dark set! i know, i was fooled too. lego missed a great opportunity to make this mech illuminate, but that could have bloated the price. the colours look very nice overall, and looks like it can kick zanies robotic butt.
in conclusion, this set is worth the 75 dollar price tag for two awesome mechs. worth getting for any ninjago fan!

The TMB is a very nice set! One of two ways to get Deepstone Zane!
The price per piece ratio is very good for $60 and has 754 pieces. I absolutely recommend it for you.
