Two robbers hurry to get the stolen treasure to the secret hiding place. Kendo, the robber leader has Wehni load the bunch of gold coins onto the transport and tie up the chain as he takes the front of the transport. Wehni takes the back and both robbers lift the heavy structure up and think about how long they would have to complete the task. If the treasure was left at the hideout, ninja would find it in no time. Especially Ito, the sneakiest ninja of them all.
"I wouldn't be surprised if Ito was following us right now," said Wehni, complaining. At that instant the very ninja they were talking about leaped out from behind a big rock and kicked Kendo down as a terrified Wehni struggled to get away from the scene.
This is a pretty nifty little set. It has got one of those Adventurers clear dome pieces that fits inside the transport, filled with 8 gold coins. The part used in the Weapons Wagon and other sets to hook horses up to carriages is used here in red. Two of them stick out each end so mini-figs can pick up the transport.
The set also comes with a leafy rock structure with a blue rod in it. The grey ninja is supposed to hold this bar and jump out from behind his hiding place. I don't know why the rod was blue, a green one would have been better to represent a plant-like thing. Still this is my first blue rod and it very possibly could be the first one available. I am so glad the set came with a grey ninja. Now I don't have to buy a much larger set for one.
Anyway, this set is pretty decent with cool playability thanks to the added rock and grey ninja. I will probably buy more of the set to get more grey ninjas since I want them very badly to kill the overload of black ones here. The set is a nice addition or start to a Lego collection and I give it three stars because it was what I expected, and was a nice introduction to Ninjas and it included a grey ninja.
