    Does anyone else like these? With the shortage of any interesting rotf figures, I've been sucked back into Lego, and have started to look into getting some.

    The only one I have so far is the Granite Grinder, and I'm quite happy with it.

    The ones that are really getting my interest are the Stone Chopper, Thunder Driller, Boulder Blaster, Crystal King, and the Underground Mining Station.

    I have all the 'First year" sets minus the exclusive and the $90 one. I like them. Very interesting.

    I love them, but since I haven't bought all the right sets yet, I'm still short a couple of the Rock Monsters. Alas, more recently my interest in getting them all have waned, plus I haven't picked up any of the newer batch of sets yet. Might resort to selling off the ones I have, but I dunno.

    i want the big set, i think its the station. i just know that if i buy that, its all going crazy from there :(  i dont know if ill be able to justify that to the girlfriend too haha. i was really bummed at how small the imperial base was that just came out, those were my favorite. i almost impulse bought that the moment i saw it but soon reconsidered

    I'm tempted to buy Crystal King. I loved Rock Raiders as a kid, nice to see Lego going back to old themes and making them fresh (ala this and Space Police).

    Haven't got any of these sets, but the lack of good RoTF toys did pull me back to LEGO in general. I'm more of City/Town collector, but I love some of the recent Castle sets.

    ROTF or not, the Power Miners series is IMHO the best Lego series in a long time. Very cool stuff. Of course, I don't have a single one of em, but still crazy great lookin'!

    Just got the Stone Chopper and the Mine Mech, and I'm quite pleased with both. The Mine Mech just became my favorite of the three I have actually.

    I'm not sure If I'll be building the Cave Cutter though. It doesn't look all that amazing.

    I've got the all of the first year sets minus the one exclusive which I'm looking to order. Thinking about grabbing the Crystal King next for the rock monsters.
