Rated 5 out of 5 by LegoSpider1515 SANDMAN!!!!!!!
I was excited about getting this set ever since I laid eyes on it!!! I mean, there was only one set who had the mini figure of Sandman, at least that I know of. Then comes Rhino barging in with his mechanical rhino suit. It is also unique with it's build and design, he is just awesome to the whole set!! Spider-Man also had a unique pants, with red as the bottom of the pants. Iron Spider, a new character, was also cool with the 4 limbs attached to his back and his red/gold mixture looks great! The crane is a little fragile, but then it would not be maneuverable to hit Rhino or the other things to hit. Overall, this set is great with it's uniqueness and it's playability is awesome!

Very cool build. Sets a perfect action scene for play. Seems to be inspired by the Sandman from Spider-Man 3 and the Rhino from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Nice combo.
The construction site has lots of detail and movie parts for its relatively small size. There is potential for some of the decals and the building of the set to pose a challenge. Was quite fun to build.
Rhino's mech suit was surprisingly detailed, dexterous, and looks pretty cool. The Sandman's "arms" in the construction site are a good idea but don't pan out the best in actuality. The figures included with the set are all pretty great in my opinion. I don't know much of Iron-Spider's background but the figure looks awesome.
While it's a fun set to build and I'm sure to play, my only suggestion for improvement would be increasing the size of the construction site and maybe adding a vehicle like a cement mixer.

Okay, I'm going to start this review with the minifigures. Spiderman first. He's mostly the same as in other sets with the exception of the dual colored legs. Those legs make him look so much better (adds some more red. There was to much blue before) and that by itself makes the set worth getting.
Sandman: He looks pretty good. He is halfway sand and halfway human and the printing, though minimal, looks great. I've read a few reviews that people complained about the re-purposed elf head. I don't really agree. The angry side of the head looks perfect. I wish Lego had made the other side grinning, though. They show him grinning in the little comic that's included and it looks really good. Changing that expression would have made him a little bit better. Overall, Sandman is a great minifigure and getting if you are a Spiderman fan. (I forgot to mention Sandman's hammer. It's a really clever little build and it adds a lot to him)
Rhino: A pretty simple minifigure as far a villains go, but still cool. Again, I've heard some people complain about the repurposed head and again, I have to disagree. I think that it's a perfect head for Rhino. I know it comes on pretty much all clones, but it still looks good. Actually, it's better than good, because you can change his expression by switching that head out for one of the new frowning stormtrooper heads. Rhino's torso printing is simple, but excellent.
Iron Spider: Save the best for last. Iron Spider is epic. His printing is superb, his pack is a great little build and he's just all around awesome. A five out of five star minifigure.
Now, on to the builds, starting with Rhino's armor. I'm kind of biased when is comes to mechs of any sort. I love them! So of course Rhino's suit was a must have. It's very sturdy, highly poseable and looks great in the process. I especially like the mix of large and small joints and the white stud shooters. The head design is genius and it really looks like a rhino (albeit a robot rhino, but a rhino nonetheless). The technic frame that the head folds down onto gives the suit a chunky, intimidating look. The legs are a similar design to Hulkbuster's. The orangey brown brick padding inside is a nice detail.
The main build: The first thing that I want to say about it is I wish Lego had made it a regular construction site with spots to add Sandman's sand pillar and hands. That way, you could use the site for Lego city or something. Also, maybe the crane could have been a tiny bit bigger with a cab for a driver. Oh well. It's still a good build with a good-sized area to play in. The super-jumper functions were good, although the crane/boulder drop one was hard to hit. I like the little hidey-hole for the stolen gems. The sticker detail is awesome, but it was a bit tough to get the ones on the road straight. The sand hands were neat builds and the crane looks good but, like I said, a cab would have been nice.
Pros: Great minifigures
Good play functions
Epic Rhino suit
Lots of play area
Some amazing sticker detail
Cons: Sand hands and pillar aren't easily removed
Some stickers were hard to get right
No cab on the crane.
Overall a very satisfactory set, though maybe a bit pricey. I would recommend this set to any Spiderman or Marvel superheroes fans.

This was a great set to build with three stages and and two key parts, it meant you could spread the build out over a couple of days if you wanted to.
The minifigures are good, especially Iron Spiders extra arms which can be moved to hold onto things. Sandmans 'sand' colour was a little off at first, but when combined with the scenery, made perfect sense and blended in.
First Build - Rhino Suit;
Building the Rhino exo-suit was straight forward but well thought out, keeping to the idea of it being to offer strength and intimidation rather than to be a full battle suit (like the Hulk Buster)
Standing at about a 2/3 the size of hulk buster this suit was still a fair size, especially when stood next to an ordinary minifigure. the arms and legs are fully possible, and the addition of stud shooters on the hands was good, resembling the toes of actual rhino feet
Second Build - Battle ground Scenery:
Split into two parts, and combined later, this was also good to build and surprisingly large when assembled. with a width of about 30cm and the crane height at about 15cm there is a lot of area to play with. Again, simple to build but interesting to see it all take shape.
The way this set was designed to integrate Sandmans abilities of being able to manipulate the surrounding sand element was very well done, with two large hands grabbing out at Spiderman and Iron Spider, as well as Sandmans pile set high to give him a good vantage point for attacking, all making for a great play and display set.
> The only tricky part for this build was getting the stickers on just right, and there were quite a few!
Overall, well worth getting, especially if you are trying to build a Lego city or town. Lot's of fun to be had with this set
