This is one of those sets you either love or hate! There isn't much middle ground here.
For fans of KK, I suppose this guy is great! Ditto for parts collectors and completists. The chrome helm and black dragon are undoubtedly popular. The figure itself isn't that shabby, and if you like the LEGO dragons, this guy is the way to go.
As an army builder, 4818 is overpriced. As a parts pack, it is also lacking. If your looking for a chromed helmet, then its not a bad set. Still, considering the cost of this set, I can only give it a 4 out of 10.
Personally, I found this set to be somewhat overpriced, considering that 4816
, and 4819
could all be had for the same price. Those sets come with more bricks and figures than 4818, and are certainly of more value to me. The Dragon, while ok, is not really that versatile (I actually have no real use for it). The figure himself is not unique, nor are any of the parts (except the chrome helmet). This guy just isn't worth $5.
