Very nice detail!
" I ordert this set from S@H a while back, and I still love it. So I desidet to do a review.
The building process:
very nice. The bags are numbered 1 and 2, (1 for the first floor, and 2 for top floor and the roof) and it has two instruction books. one having considerably darker colors than the other, witch is a bit wired, but I can live with that.
I heard many people complain about the 'missing bag of 10197' but I had no such problems. I think this was only an issue with the very first boxes coming of the production line, and has been fixed.
The first floor:
The first is nicely details on the outside and inside alike. The sliding garage door is a nice feature, and I love the golden fire helmets. The inside if stuffed full of accessories. Everything a firefighter will ever need is here; Sliding pool, fire extinguishers, fire helmets, tools fore fixing the fire truck, etc.
The second floor:
This floor is even better than the first. The brick and mortar pattern is just incredible. The interior of this floor is nice as well. I especially love the little kitchen, and the ping-pong table.
The roof:
The roof is surprisingly detailed. The year count on the front is one of my favorite details in the whole set. The golden bell with the bat above it is nice too.
Over all:
A very good set. Weldon LEGO®! You did it again!
10/10.

Great tool, but: BUY AT PICK-A-BRICK
" This is a great tool. Better than the old, green one.
But when I was browsing throw pick-a-brick, i came acros the brickseperator, and it was pricet at €1,81 instead of €2,49. I don't know if this is a fault just here in Holland, or if everyone can get it cheep throw pick-a-brick, but I woold check it out if I where you!
But over all, This is a great product. "

My first star wars set
" This is a great set. This is also my first star wars set.
The building prices is not that special. But there is a LOT of colors in the inside of this droid. Why? I have no idea... The final model is really well designed. The little functions like r2's disc cuter are great. To retract the there leg however is quite a process.
It wood also have been great if it had wheels under it. But you can easily do this yourself.
Ratings:
-build 8/10
-valu for money 9/10
-over all 9/10 (wood have been a ten if the third leg was a little easier to extend and if it had wheels under it.)

Best set ever!
" This is my review of set 10220 VW camper van.
This set is great. The build is just excellent. It keeps interesting the whole way, and dos not take up to much of you're spare time. The final model is just staggering, and it's functional aswel!
Ratings:
-build 10/10
-valu for money: 10/10
-playabilaty 9/10 (it dod not steer and it's just to fragile for a 10. But the pop-top and the folding bed make up fore the lost points.)
-over all: 11/10!
This set is great. So great that I've bought a second one! "
