"Lego have surpassed themselves yet again with another fabulous castle. It has rekindled the love of Harry Potter again for 2 of my sons. The younger of the 2 struggled a bit with base and the small parts that are added to that but once that was complete he was fine. Both of them love the chamber of secrets part and the basilisk and surprisingly they liked the small micro figures. They have some figures from previous sets they have so they added them in when the build was complete. Also looks great in a Perspex case. No complaints regarding the price either as the level is detail is exceptional."
"My eldest son has all of the creator expert sets but this is by far his favourite. The detail is fantastic and the way in which the mechanisms fit together is ingenious. My middle 2 kids also love playing with the cars and have had lots of other mini figures allocated a turn flying around the track. My daughter wasn’t really a Lego fan until she started playing with this set. The power functions are also a must."
"My middle son is still obsessed with Brickheadz and he loves Superman. I like the fact that they are small sets and he can save up his pocket money to buy new ones himself. He is eagerly waiting for Groot/Rocket to be released. My daughter is also very happy that there are Frozen Brickheadz now available."
"My middle son got this as a reward from his nana and he is thrilled with it. He managed most of the build by himself and he loves the colours. It is similar to the 2015 falcon but he isn’t bothered by that at all. It’s from the new Solo film so that’s all he needs from a new Lego set. Our issue is that we now have 3 falcons and are running out of space ."
"One word... Impressive.. and that doesn’t even begin to explain how amazing this building is. My husband was absolutely enthralled by it (he’s 35) and he only let our eldest son help build it. It looks completely authentic once completed and dare I say it doesn’t really look like Lego. An iconic building has received a fantastic rendering in this set and is a must buy for any Lego fan."
"My middle son received this as a Christmas gift and because he got so much Lego, he has only just built it. He absolutely loves it and liked the skeleton-like base to the ship and especially the undead sharks. The masts are slightly flimsy but now that it is safely inside a Perspex case it is fine. Have just purchased him the Black Pearl from EBay because he watches the Pirates movies all the time and love ships. Competitive price too for this sizeable set."
"We had to pay over the price listed above to obtain this from EBay for our sons, so we would liked a higher level of availability on what Lego would have known to be a popular set despite its size and price tag. Having said that we would have always purchased it for them as they are both massive Star Wars fans. Neither of them were disappointed with the sheer magnitude and detail of this set and after a few arguments about who was doing what part were settled, they both really enjoyed building it after school (and homework) for over a week. It is now proudly displayed on a specially built shelf in their bedroom, where they brush it everyday to keep dust off of it.. not sure how long that will last for, we will probably end up buying a Perspex case for it."
"My eldest son has all of the modular buildings and has been hassling me regarding this new diner since hearing it was going to be released. He was as usual not disappointed, he loves the interior details from the duke box and open plan kitchen to the gym and boxing ring on the middle level which he loves. Now completed it looks very impressive sitting in a perspex case in his bedroom and that is thanks to the charming set of colours used. Thanks Lego for making a 12 year old very happy."
"My sons adore this BB8, so much in fact that I had to purchase a second one from our local Lego store as they were constantly arguing about where it should sit. The head movement is simply amazing and very well rendered as well as the torch mechanism from the front of the model. My middle son found this a bit fiddly to build but with a bit of help was fine. Thanks Lego for another great model that has provided hours of building fun."
"My eldest son is obsessed with the whole Creator series and has all of the sets. He loves the power function on the carousel and in particular the animals. The level of detail on the outer aspect of the roof and the use of fabric for the umbrella like covering makes it look very aunthentic. More fairground sets would likely be very popular."
