An amazing set for anyone, beginner or collector
" What else can I say apart from what has already been said? This is an amazing set, and as an Electrical Engineer whose Lego bug has just been rekindled, this was the ideal stepping stone for my transition to an AFOL (Adult Fan of Lego). It has superb details, amazing functions through an ingenious gear box, and absolutely HUGE play value. The sheer number of parts alone make this worth buying, let alone the sheer amount of customisations that can be applied to it.
The set is quite big, bigger than what I was expecting. To give you an idea, you can see how big it is, next to the HULK. It even dwarfs the Star Wars UCS Tie Fighter (also shown in images).
In terms of building, it took me longer than most as I would always start just before bedtime, which wasn't ideal as I nodded off a fair few times, which is not recommended as Technic pins and beams aren't the most comfortable pillows. I had to double back on my build at a few points as I wasn't paying attention, so it does need a bit of caution when building. It was just the right amount of challenge without it being too intricate or straightforward.
To summarise, this is a fantastic set with limitless play value. It is highly recommended for anyone and will make a splendid addition to anyone's collection. "
