Zane's Dragon Power Spinjitzu Race Car is an exciting addition to the Dragons Rising series. The set includes a visually striking spinning ninjacar, four minifigures, and two hover flyers. The ninjacar's ice element design adds an extra level of allure. One of the standout features of this set is its spinjitzu functionality, which allows the car to lift its wheels by pushing down the spoiler. By utilizing the two dragon cores, the car can slide and perform impressive spinning movements. Additionally, Zane's Dragon Power Spinjitzu Race Car is relatively easy to build, making it accessible for both younger fans and experienced builders.

Sora's Transforming Mech Bike Racer is an exceptional set that combines creativity with thrilling play possibilities.

The transforming feature allows Sora's vehicle to seamlessly transition from a bike to a mech, adding an element of versatility to the play experience. One notable aspect is the inclusion of four slot blasters that can be attached to both the bike and the villain's bike, adding excitement and action to the play scenarios. However, it is worth mentioning that it would have been ideal for Sora's bike to have a designated spot to hold her swords.

Lloyd and Arin’s Ninja Team Mechs set is an impressive addition to the Dragons Rising collection. With its fusion of samurai armor, mechs, and traditional Japanese elements, this set stands out for its unique design. The set includes five minifigures, Lloyd's mech, and Arin's mech. The mechs are adorned with bamboo straw hats and Geta, traditional Japanese slippers, adding an authentic touch. One notable feature is the formidable polearm wielded by Lloyd's mech, allowing for dynamic and engaging play scenarios. However, the second blade on Lloyd's mech tends to detach easily, which could be a minor inconvenience.
