Great fun to build
" Having finished the Bucket Wheel Excavator I was after something easier to build and Ocean Explorer ticked the boxes.
The small submersible and helicopter you build are clever for their size. The main build was straightforward but a little light on what I would call "Technic" functions. Even so the crane operation works well and the movement when the whole ship is pushed across a surface looks great and steers realistically which is excellent.
I slightly modified the kit by making some new name labels for fun. "

Great addition to our street
" Straight forward build with some lovely little features. Especially like the movie posters and the sidewalk stars. Finished off one corner of our street very nicely.
This is one build that would be greatly enhanced by a built in LED lighting system. Come on LEGO, I know there are aftermarket systems but they are a little DIY and expensive for what you get. Please consider add on kits that replace "lights" and structures (for cable routing) to light up these creations much like Power Functions are optional on other kits.
Kit now becoming hard to find and on the retirement list for this year so if you have been thinking about getting it, best you hurry up. "

Brilliant and beautiful kit
" Not really a big fan of themed sets (e..g Ninjago, Star Wars etc.) so this was a bit of a leap for me as I'm usually a Technic/Creator builder. But so glad I did.
15 bags of fun made it a couple of afternoons worth of building that was throughly enjoyable.
Level of detail and features within the hull and topside make this set a joy to build and look at.
Only one thing to pick on, the mounting of the large red lanterns is a little fragile and very easy to knock off so you need to be careful with those. "
