    Why did baseplates die?
    | 25-34
    So I'm a geologist. Which meant I loved the fact that some volcano sets showed up, especially with women among the scientists. (We'll just ignore that the kind of stuff in the sets has no place in real volcanology...) However, even though I anticipated that the actual volcano would be the best part, I was dismayed to find that the bulk of it is big single molded pieces instead of actual bricks. Plus, instead of sitting on a baseplate, it was an awkward amalgamation of four quadrants, each itself already two separate base pieces. All of this was 'held together' by random colored pieces in the interior. I say 'held together' because in many cases, it was not together in the least. Because the big dumb molded volcano pieces are awkward to click into place, I tried to pick up the whole thing and press from beneath as well. Bad idea given the precarious internal manner of holding it together. More times than I cared to count, something inside popped out of place because of the amalgamation of 8 small plates as a base. I really wanted to love this volcano, but the silly design left a very bad taste in my mouth.

    If you only get one volcano set, this would be it

    Love this set, most parts are great; truck, trailer and the volcano are all excellent. I love the details on the trailer like the crowbar and instruments. It has everything you need to collect, move, break open your boulders and then have your scientist study the contents. So the play value if it's your only volcano explorer set is very good. As I've found the other sets do add to the fun though! The volcano is rather large, but a doddle to assemble thanks to the colour coding going on inside it. A couple of minor things though, the dumper isn't great, a seat wouldnt have hurt and again the repetition of minifigure heads.

    4yr received this set as a present and really enjoyed blasting balls from volcano. The set has a variety of play experience and time consuming as many components to build - none of which too challenging. Probably best enjoyed due to the number of various pieces and imaginative free build possibilities

    Overall this is a very good set. I am a bit dissapointed in the volcano though. It was too symetrical with the lava flowing in the exact same place in the exact same way on all sides. I wish that it was a bit more realistic and had a big stream of lava on just one or two sides. I also wish that the drone operator had something to stand on. I made a cool rock formation for him, and it looks a lot better.
