Great all rounder
" This is an excellent lego set all round. My son and I spent about 5 days building it and it even gets bonus points from my wife and daughter, as it has a ballet studio.
It was complicated enough for me to enjoy the whole build and still easy enough for my 5 year old to build, with some guidance as to where the pieces go.
Loved the size, diversity of businesses and detail. "

Consider why you buy it
" As a lego purchase, is has very few parts for a $200 model. Though thats due to the expensive motors.
Its pretty quick and simple to build. I made the whole thing while my kids watched Despicable Me 3.
Fun and not too time consuming.
As an RC car, my son's 4 RC cars were faster and they cost about $40 each. They dont have suspension, though you could argue the lego model's is almost academic as the spring are super stiff, if the springs did move, the, impact would be enough to pull the car apart.
The mobile controls are horrible, as many people have stated. Apparently there are instructions on youTube to program something better, just haven't got there yet.
As a lego model that has RC functions, its great except for the app, which could, hopefully be fixed by lego.
As an RC car, its slow, stiff and looks like the old Tamiya cars of the 80s, though this doesn't like grass or loose dirt and simply wont move on it. I've added a photo of it with bigger wheels, which make it faster and more versatile, though you ideally need to extend the axel with other parts.
Would I recommend this?? Not Yet
A huge amount of potential here, just not quite there yet. Maybe wait a bit until they fix the app, because its the single biggest downside to this model and if the app was better, this would definitely get thumbs up. "

A Mixed Bag
" First off, this is quite possibly, my favourite building process this year and I've built a lot during lockdown.
However, there are some unusual downsides to this model.
The lego quality seems like it came from a different factory. It was 95%, but not that "perfect fit" that I expect from Lego. The Lego name on the pieces seemed less readable compared to another piece next to it and the light grey colour of some pieces, matched nothing that I have to date. The base plates were also all slightly warped, none of them sit flat, even with the weight of the train on it. This made me think Lego has opened up a new factory that's not quite the same standard (China maybe?)
The lego motor that you need for this is 88013 (not the powered bogey out of every other train), its not mentioned anywhere, until you have it and Lego Australia did not even have the motor available on their website when I got the train, I had to buy it elsewhere. It's available now.
Also the price with the powered up gear, makes it almost the same price as the Cargo Train (60198) which is pretty steep for one locomotive.
There is no flange on the 3rd and 6th Wheels, making it not grip well and easily derail on a standard lego curve.
The only other thing I find unusual is that its Brown. The Crocodile CE 6/8 trains were green and only became brown when they were upgraded to the BE 6/8.
Still, its fun, its worth getting, but it just feels like it came from somewhere other than Lego.
