"It took me a very long while and it was also the first lego set I bought for myself.
The set might look intimidating at first, and it still looks intimidating after build because of it's size. It serves as a nice piece to lay around on a bookshelf or a table because of its size.
One thing to note, the motorized function isn't as great as I thought it would be. There's a failsafe mechanism to ensure the motor doesn't overwork or burn out due to one particular type of gear. This then leads to the conveyor, bucket, and the tracks not moving.
Pros: Great build, Time consuming, Fun, Gigantic, Motorized
Cons: Weak Motor/Motor system
PS. Kinda wish there was a RC version of this that came stock instead of having need to modify, but that's all part of the fun right?"
