"After building the Saturn V rocket, I felt the sudden urge to build something bigger that I could take my time over. The Colosseum more than satisfied that urge and reignited my passion for Lego I hadn’t had since childhood. Spending a few hours a day for a week kept the interest going and prevented madness setting in over continuous repeated sections. Now that it’s complete, I can’t help but admire the architectural detail gone into creating this set. The photos and background info of the real Colosseum in the 4 instruction books are a nice touch. Decided to include a few mini figures to the arena to enhance its display."
