Sad The Build Is Over
" Waited 10 months before we even opened the box. Enjoyed the build. It did take a while which is GREAT this time of year. It is a little less sturdy than I expected and you do have to be careful when you move it. We are collectors so aside from dusting it won't be moved. I was missing some pieces though, actually large pieces. Lego handled it promptly and they seemed a little surprised too. I wish we could have a large build like this once a year. We built ours on a the ping pong table which was perfect. Plenty of room to sort pieces and find them easily. It was fun. "

Nice Addition To Collection
" I would have preferred skipping the vehicle and the other miscellaneous items like the chairs and umbrella. The power functions are a good idea but something I won't use. Didn't put batteries in because I didn't want to forget them and have them corrode. Price seems high and it was a quick build. After all of my seemingly negative comments, this thing is huge and that is a positive. "

Get The Remote Also
" I bought this and the battery pack. The train went so fast it flew off the tracks. I attached a video of when I got the remote. It controls speed and can back up. I reviewed the other purchases and I think you should get all 4 items. "

You Need This
" I wrote a review on the battery box while I was waiting for this to arrive. It is exactly what you need to slow the train motor down. This works great and I wish I knew this to save time on shipping! "

Set Up With Holiday Train
" We set up the Holiday Train every year and this is now part of the set. It isn't as much a Holiday set BUT it fits in with the scene. We are collectors. "

I Recommend This But Get The Remote Also
" So, we got this for the holiday train so we can run it around our Christmas Tree. You need the remote to slow the train down. Otherwise it goes way too fast. Train won't stay on the tracks. I called in prior to ordering and I was told I only needed this and the motor. I don't fault the Lego person I talked to but I wish she would have explained this to me to save some hassle. "

Love The Finished Build
" We bought this right when it came out and finally got around to building it. We really like the look of the build. It was a little repetitive but understandable. I would recommend this. "

I Like All The Vehicles
" I hate stickers, this has stickers and I messed one up. My fault, didn't pay attention. Need to call Lego and order replacements. I like the build. I liked building the seats. I timed myself building them. It broke up the repetitiveness. It is a neat looking vehicle for display. Keep them coming. "

I LIKED IT
" I liked the white and orange colors. This is my first "round" build so I looked forward to it. I also like the mechanism build. This is a positive comment, I am reviewing this after 2 other builds that are newer but I am amazed at the really good pricing on the this set. It displays very well. "

Excellent Display Piece
" As I have commented before, we are more collectors than anything else. Halfway through we realized we needed to keep the clear pieces clear of fingerprints. Wiped everything off and continued the build. As with the Saturn Rocket I am glad no stickers were involved. This is a quality build. "
