"My parents got me this set as a christmas present and it was love at first sight. I really enjoyed building it, started right away and was busy till 4 am. The little helicopter and submarine are kind of cute and I think you can actually fit a mini figure inside the cockpits. Haven't tried it yet but definitely will. The only negative is the heights of the helicopter platform. It is too big and doesn't really match the other parts of the ship but that is just a minor thing. I definitely would recommend it, I had a great time building it and will display it somewhere in my flat to remind my of its awesomeness!! Good job there LEGO!!!"
