I Feel Priveleged....
" I queued from midnight on release day at Milton Keynes store and I cannot ever regret that decision... I never thought I'd have the chance to own a set this size let alone get one on release day...
A bit of luck a few days before release meant I could afford this and it was worth every penny. Best build I've ever tackled by a Mile. I can't thank the Lego group enough for this re-release... it's simply incredible. The level of detail, the number of bags, the beautiful box and the colossal manual all make this something very special indeed... a build that will stay with me for a lifetime and hopefully my children's too. The pride I felt finishing her was undescribable. Thank you so much for this wonderful, amazing set!!!! "

Stunning......
" I've gone on a bit of a modular fest this last couple weeks after rekindling my modular addiction after putting together the Ghostbusters Firehouse.
I've built the pet shop, cinema, the restaurant and assembly square.
I'd built the cinema and pet shop years ago when they were first released so got them out of the way first.
THIS, is by far my favourite modular to date. The finished model is simply beautiful and I'm completely in love with it. It's the only one I will probably leave a review of.
It's very pretty, superb interior and exterior details, is great to play with and looks fabulous on a street.
Don't hesitate. If this set disappoints you, you are not a fan of Lego!! "

My return to technic.....
" Ok so I got back into LEGO as an adult about 6-7 years ago. I've built large modulars, UCS models, and have the entire Force Awakens Collection.
I remember liking technic as a kid but haven't looked twice at it since being an adult fan. Until this.
I only bought this as I got it at an unbelievably cheap price. It sat on my unit for about an hour after delivery before my LEGO build fix kicked in and I just had to open it. I cut the seals, instantly regretting it as that reduces its value..... But..... after looking through the incredibly beautiful box layout and inspecting the manual, I HAD to start building. The sheer number of parts that came out of box 1 took me by surprise for sure. And the build? I honestly cannot remember ANY Model I've ever built that made me want to show as many people as possible whilst I was building it! This thing is pure genius and the designer needs to be applauded. I genuinely cannot shut up about it. Epic model. Thank you LEGO. If you're on the fence, get off it and just buy it. Amazing. "

Nice little addition
" Good value for money.
Last stage is slightly repetitive but you can expect that with most plane/spaceship builds due to them having 2 wings!
Nice little model to accompany obi wans fighter and combined with a storm trooper speeder, makes for a good Ariel attack! My son who is nearly 4 loves it, I love it, storm troopers not so much as now they're outnumbered! ;-)
Nice addition. Next..... I think some larger builds are in order ;-) "

Excellent!!
" First ninjago purchase, was on offer in Asda for £17 and thought was worth the money.
Fun to build as you discover all the features that will emerge at the end... then when finished you have a great play experience! My son and daughter were scrapping over who played with it! Such good value, 3 figures to play with and a whole bunch of features including a few I'd never even seen!
Hats off Lego! Well done! :-) "

Very pleased
" After spending a lot of time building modular buildings I quite fancied a go at these. My first was the Eiffel Tower which was larger than expected. I bought this set as it looked like a nice big set given the piece count. I was not disappointed! A lot larger than expected and looks superb on my side unit. Very pleased and have already ordered 2 more from the series.
Only small niggle is, would be nice if LEGO could keep the base plates more consistent so that they line up along side one another. But am tackling that one myself ;-) Well done LEGO! "
