Ford Fanatic!
" Where to start? What an amazing kit! Literally don't know where to start. The attention to detail is fantastic. Both the cars are amazing - the truck and the drag car. I absolutely love this set. When I purchased it, I didn't realise what it entailed. The quality of the kit is fantastic and the design of every little detail is amazing.
I'll start with the F-150 Raptor. The truck itself looks amazing with an awesome working suspension, which gives the truck an epic ride height. The sticker set for it looks fantastic giving it an authentic look.
Moving on to the Model A Drag car. Again, looking fantastic. The flames on the car really set it off and are not stickers, but are actually painted on the doors. The fantastic difference between the front and rear wheels give it an aggressive stance and the coolest thing about it is that you can put a huge blown Ford V8 in it, or you can chop that out for another engine, which conveniently sits on the wicked engine crane that you build as part of the set.
The set itself also includes a perfectly proportioned trailer to sit the Model A on whilst transporting it to and from the track. It has fold-down ramps on the rear, to drive the Model A on to, and a flip-down stopper at the front to prevent tipping.
This kit also includes a great little garage setup, with four mini-figures (two drivers and two pit mechanics). Yet again, the attention to detail of the garage is fantastic, with every tool that your pit crew will need (spanner, wrench, adjustables, and nut gun to name just a few). These fit snugly inside the drawers and cupboard in the little garage and also clip above the workbench... which has a vice!! Did I mention that it has tyre changing facilities too?
On the back of your garage you will find a great little podium for the winners of the drag race, and to top it all off, a set of start-lights for the drag strip.
This is my favourite set that I own to date and I have really enjoyed building it. It was a leisurely 4 hour build.  "

Rey's Speeder
" Rey's Speeder set is a great entry into the Star Wars universe. The speeder is a nice build that took approx 1 hour and comes with two mini-figures: Rey and Unkar's Thug. Rey is a great mini-figure with a satchel, pistol and staff accessories. She also comes with a sand mask, or optional hair. The design of the speeder is great, with fantastic detail, nice sticker sets, and openable storage flaps on the body via the thrusters on the back, which you twist to open. However, I am disappointed that you can't actually fit anything into the storage containers. High price for the amount of pieces, nevertheless, a nice set and a great addition to my collection. "

The clone wars Tank
" A good entry into the Star Wars universe. I was pleasantly surprised with the level of detail in the set. The attention to detail is great, with firing canons, an actual cockpit, and a storage compartment on the back. I love the four mini figures included, a Jedi, two droids and a clone trooper. The canons pack a real punch, so be careful not to lose all the missiles, however, you do get plenty of spares. They also move on hinges, so have plenty of range. The additional droids look really great and fold up as they do in the movies. I really enjoyed this build and took a leisurely two hours. I felt this product was maybe a bit overpriced, but a nice set regardless. Oh and i got a free mini figure droid too!! "

Ideal starter set
" The Green Cruiser, a great little set in the Lego Creator range. It makes three sets: a cruiser, a truck and a speedboat. My favourite is the cruiser because it has a cool feature at the back where you can open the engine bay. I was disappointed that this did not come with any mini-figures, however, I feel this is a great entry into Lego for anyone. Great value for money and would definitely recommend. "

Nice little set
" Really pleased with this little set. I felt that both the cars were nicely detailed, however the GT-40 could have been a bit more rounded in its design. Nice features on both the cars with the spoilers moving on the Ford GT and the nose of the 40 pivoting. Love the three mini figures, especially the retro race suit mini figure. Would recommend for any Ford, or car enthusiast. The build time was a leisurely hour and a half. Great looking sticker sets for both the cars and a nice little podium. "
