A Unique & Iconic Set for Fans of Fantastic Beasts
"This is a rather detail and solid set. While it is not as epic and grand as some of the Harry Potter sets such as the Great Hall, it is iconic and unique in its own way. It reminds me of my other set “Hobbit - An Unexpected Gathering Set”/the Hobbit Hole, a mid-sized set with all the key characters from the movie. I love all of the details of the briefcase. The three included creatures are all really beautiful to look at. Building-wise, while it wasn’t super challenging, the set is complex and detailed enough to make the process enjoyable. My 3.5 years old son is the one who really play with the set. Even though he had never watch the movie, he has a great time role playing with all of the characters and beasts. He also enjoys opening+unfolding the case, and closing+folding the case. The mechanism is definitely solid for withstand a preschooler’s repeating play.
My main critique of the set is that the claws of the Thunderbird and the legs of Erumpent failed off way too easily. My son and I have to constantly fix them while we are playing with it. The case is also a bit smaller than I expected but at the same time that’s what makes it super cute.
Additional Feedback regarding the Fantastic Beasts Series: It will be nice to feature the many unique beasts depicted in the movie either in different sets (the circus scene? ) or as individually packed mini-sets."
"I bought this set for my nephew’s 10 years old Birthday. We built it together right away. This was a rather simple and repetitive build but my nephew enjoyed playing with the set a lot afterwards. He recreated many different fight scenes from the MCU movies with his other Marvel characters. My only critique is I think $79.99 is a little bit too much for the number of bricks in the set. I felt like I was probably paying more for the Ironman suits than the structure itself."
