"I recieved this set as a gift for Christmas. I was very excited as I had my eyes on this for months. It didn't disappoint! It was challenging, and I made a few mistakes, but it was great fun to marvel at the beautiful detail in this. LEGO outdid themselves on this! I appreciated the special hoods for Aira and Naida, those are fun to collect. I only have Azari's otherwise. The catapult is cute and works pretty well. The blue things you shoot with (Water?) are not so easy to lose in deep carpet. I loved the Princess Dragon egg, so pretty and sparkly! Estari herself reminded me of Elandra, I can't wait to reuinite them after this. Ragana is very well done, her face is very fit for her castle. Her cat Jynx is well done to, but mine came with bad white printing on the face. I loved the fact that these aren't really planks, the castle is almost built out of bricks! The brick built door is nice, and I love all the moving features. I don't have a favorite room, they are all too amazing.
Living room details: Fireplace with lavafall behind it. Her family crest above the fire, cute little bookshelves, a wickedly pretty couch, torch, chocolate bar, and a giant portrait of Ragana.
Bedroom details: Bed with hidden compartment, bedside table.
To the throne room is a wobbly bridge to throw unwelcome visitors into a cave area, and the throne room features a crystal ball and spinning throne. An evil green chandeleir, trapdoor to dungeon with breakout wall, steps down, moss spot with a bed area for the cat. All in all, I love this!!!!! Really worth the crazy money."
"I don't have any words to say how great this set is. Elandra the Queen Dragon is the best of all of them. She is a lovely white color with great form. The wings ticked me off a bit, but once built, they are pretty sturdy. I am careful though, for kids who play roughly might bend and damage the wings. Her articulation is pretty smooth. I have an important note: Her neck is difficult to turn, I believe LEGO meant the head to be moved instead. A customer review below me complained about the head falling off. Her head stays on perfectly, and hasn't fallen off. I believe they may have built it wrong, for her head is very sturdy. The build itself is good to keep you busy for hours. The tower is pretty simple to build, and I love all the little details in it. Elandra is the hardest to build, lots of Technic pieces and complicated parts is what she is made up of.
Here are the details of the tower: lovely rock stepping-stone feature, great detail, lack of stickers, Dusti the fox, the little dungeon for the mouse, the door for the dungeon, Dusti's room, the top with the poison pellet shooter, the shackles for the Queen.
Here are the details of the dragon: Great articulation in wings, legs, tail, head. Saddle for two, lack of stickers, detail, her beauty.
So to sum it all up, this is a great set for below $90 and is completely worth investing in. I am completely pleased with the line of Elves LEGO threw out this year."
