Vroom!
" The car has good colors, there are some things I don't like tho. The lights seem to far back, and barely visible to the point where you would think, what's the point of even putting them there. This wasn't the most annoying part. Trying to connect the windshield at the front with those two plugs to the connects was obnoxious and frustrating. Last thing I would mention that as far as the rear. It looks a little chunky at the back and boxy. I personally would of been interested to see what it was like with out the back bottom arrow like fins on the back sides. Overall, it's still a good set. Just not really any features beside the turning and the pistons moving. "

Tree of Life
" Why Tree of Life I call it? Well, it will never die, it's made of Legos ha. It's a great display and decoration. The only small annoyance is that some of the dark brown pieces are hard to see on the instructions. The other issue was the green leaves. It's so green at the top that you have to look carefully at the book if you want to put them on the right spot, even then, it's hard. I did as much as I could and eventually just balanced it out evenly, made it look reasonable and good. It's a great set and it's unique in a way where you don't see sets like these made often, I hope it's the start of something new. "

Julius Caeser!
" The VIP freebie with this set, must of been Julius Caeser! This set defintely catches attention. That's for sure. Also hard to believe that it has more pieces than the Falcon. But hey, can't complain about more pieces for 1/4th less of the price! It is a fairly repetitive set (about 90% of it), some non repetitive, here and there like the middle. The most tedious is probably the tall structure as that is mainly repetitive the first 2-3 floors, except for some of the tops. The base was the hardest part of the set, due to not only doing the halves twice, but some of the brown plug-ins were a pain to try to put in. It is pretty sturdy, as there is no worry about moving it, just finding space for it, as it is pretty big. If you survived putting the Taj Mahal together, then you can survive this fairly easily. My only recommendation is not to think about the repetiveness when you're building, it made it feel faster for me. I split the build over a week, doing a few bags a day, so I wouldn't get bored in one sitting, and tried to stay busy for a week. I'm thinking you will enjoy this set. Fortunately, I had no problem ordering it right away, it got here very fast, within 3-4 days. You will love this set. It was an X-mas present for me. My goal is to visit the Colosseum some day. "

A truckload
" It may seem like a truck load of work (pun intended). The colors blend in really well and I strongly recommend this set if you have the Volvo Wheel Loader, Zeux and Excavator. They go great together and it just looks stunning and quite noticeable. It has a good size. It wasn't too much work, but I found out early I left out some red cogs by accident but noticed it soon and damage was minimal, just some rebuiding. Beware on step 320 for part 3 as when your putting it together, its really flimsy and will drop. At first I thought it was a design flaw and thought I would have to manually make something to hold it but I never got to that. I continued the build instead and I saw how it worked. It's a decent set and it was a nice design. Good job Lego! "

The Little Engine That Could
" I think I can, I think I can. Seen the movie?
The build was fairly easy and it's split in 4 bags, with bag 4 being the two end carts, bag 1 is the track and Bag 2,3 is the middle train.
There is a good amount of repetition. About 75% of the set, I would recommend building bag 4 simultaneously as that saves some frustration.
The set took 4-5 trys to order online, Kept crashing before finally going through. Glad I got it early. If you're a fan of trains, this is a good set for you. It's a nice display piece. Kinda funny looking too. "

A Chilling Experience
" Wow!
As a person that works in a haunted house currently, just wow! I loved seeing the news of the set. I thought it would been good to wait for the following weeks promotion, but little too late. Should of ordered right away
June 27th. Check online, nope! Check button for store stock, Nope! Called Lego store knowing it was a long shot. The dude's respone. "We do! We just got a shipment in yesterday!' What did i just hear? I was on the road in minutes after they held it for me.
The build is fairly easy, there is some small repetition on the tower but it's not enough to bore you at all. Be sure to tighten the chain if needed, if you don't, prepare for a very annoying clicking. In my case, I put too many pieces in for chains then adjusted it, (about 3-4 extra). It is fairly tall, and it gives me the chills looking at it at night.
The props are very cool, the working light, the organ, upside down skeleton, a idol item from a mountain I find interesting, (Everest), i just wish it had a Van Baron minifigure. Did anyone think of creating a coffin with a vampire in it? Just a thought. If you like haunted houses, this set is for you. I absolutely love it! "
