"Like others my main draw to this set was finally having a minifigure of Phil Coulson, and his car was a great bonus, though as another said the switches on the back do feel out of place, I may try to amend this myself with a couple ideas I have.
I was surprised at how much I liked building Detroit Steel, the thing feels like a clunky piece of military hardware, different from the more elegant tech Tony Starkbuilds, plus it's my first set with a gatling blaster. Not a HUGE fan of the buzz saw, but hey, still nice.
For Agent Coulson I wish he was a bit more detailed, but I'm just happy to finally have a figure of him.
The Iron Man figure, to be honest I don't care for it, I get that it's based on the comics, but I really don't like the helm, I definitely prefer the more detailed ones that open, but I do like the bright colors and the energy flingers are cool.
Gotta say I also like Justin Hammer, both of his faces seem as arrogant as he is and his armor has some nice detail on it.
I'm also glad hair pieces were included for both Tony and Justin.
I'd say grab this set even if you only want it for everyone's favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and his iconic car."
"I finally picked this up on my first trip to Legoland Discovery Center Michigan, and man am I glad I did. I've been a Doctor Who fan for a while.
First I love the minifigures, the two Doctors, Clara, and the Weeping Angel. The only change I would probably make is giving the 12th Doctor and alternate face, but that's really my only grip figure wise, and I am so glad we got two sonic screwdrivers, I only wish one of them could wear the fez.
The TARDIS Interior was a nice build if at times a touch tedious, namely on the six console sections, but the result was very worth it. The only change I would have made here is possibly having those Galifreyan symbols on that spinny thing at the top that rotates in the show.
The exterior TARDIS is a nice build as well, much sturdier than the Character Building one I already had, not to mention bigger and heavier, and I love that it can integrate with the interior section acting as the front door. The only change I might have made is possibly opening the front door of it, but I can understand how it was sacrificed for what it CAN do.
I already have the Character Building set and while it does things I wish the Lego one did, the Lego once just feels better and feels tougher.
I love this set and with all the potential it has I hope they pursue Doctor Who even further. Perhaps a Collectible Minifgiure series?"
"Admittedly I got this set because of Bad Cop as I love him, but I like everything I got.
I already had this variation of Emmet, but now I have two. And bad Cop is his adorable rageaholic self.
The rail bridge was, ok, it gave me ideas for future train projects and, really that's about it, I like the collapsing action it has at least and the little froggy it came with is cute.
The main event for me was Bad Cop's hover car. That thing is all kinds of awesome with it's hidden weapons and, it just looks good and fast and I love all the hidden armaments on it, even if they don't fire.
Definitely worth it for the car and figures, the rail bridge, I dunno about, but I have it and love it all the same, and it's fun to make cars fall off of it."
Bought for the shooters and winch, got a lot more.
"This is my first Ultra Agents set, bought on a whim, and I love it.
The figures. Agent Burns I think his name is seems like a cool dude, and I love his suit print, and he has a nice hair piece, not enough long hair for male figs. Adam Acid is a cool unique one too with his transparent head and his over all toxic appearance.
The buggy I adore as you get two vehicles in one, as the driver compartment can separate from the wheels into a speedboat, with a winch to reunite the two pieces, and Max looks like he's having a blast operating it.
In all honest I bought it for the stud shooters and the winch, and I didn't expect to like it as much as I do. I might even see about getting another so I can re-purpose the parts."
"I wanted another Unikitty and maybe another Emmet, so I picked up this set at Meijer.
I loved the build, and I love the come roof pieces it came with.
And while i'm not sure I see the over all point of the spinning pieces, well, I must have the attention span of a cat because they're fun to spin.
As for the figures, I wish Unikitty came with an alternate face, but I love what she came with. I definitely like having another Lucy and this Emmet is just awesome. The robo agent is awesome too. Maybe I'll name him Phil. And my aunt and I both LOVE the little snail build, he's just all kinds of cute.
"I don't even know where to start, so I'll work my way up I suppose.
I got this mainly for the minifigures, and boy what value. I already have Rocket Racoon and the buildable Groot, so I admittedly got this set for the rest of the Guardians, and I had aside form Starlord, Drax, and Gomoroa, you also get Ronin the Accuser, which means you also get the villain. Sweet deal! The Sakaaran is nice too, I mean he looks like one mean guy.
The smaller ship, I dunno if I can say much about it, the spring loaded missiles are awesome, and it's a nice little build, and I like that it's more or less a flying throne for Ronin.
The Milano itself however, that thing is, it's easily the biggest thing I've ever built, it took a long time but man was it fun, and the end result was well worth it.
The exterior is all kinds of gorgeous, it's just beautiful, the colors, the curves, the lines, the wings, the armaments, the engines, just everything about it is classy in a hot rod sort of way, fitting since Peter "Starlord" Quill is it's owner.
The interior of this thing is awesome too. Peter's pilot seat was an awesome build as was the cockpit, from the back it's just a nice build, even if not overly detailed, and I LOVED the boombox across from the rearmost seat.
I'll add that I adore the stud shooters and the spring missiles as I've always disliked flick fire missiles.
This set was worth every last penny I paid for it. and then some. I might even order the parts to make another boombox.
Oh, and Benny loves it too, he was quoted saying "SPACESHIP!" as Peter let him sit in the pilot seat."
The truck looks awesome and I love that it more or less has an actual dashboard as shown with the coffee cup, and the way the pickup bed was made is nice and clever. The only change I would personally make would be mirror stickers for the, well, mirrors. Plus the thing is solid, it's fallen off my table a few times and nothing has fallen off, the mirrors weren't even out of place.
The thing I honestly got this for was the portable toilet, because they fascinate my cousin, and now I know I'll be buying another one for him, maybe going to Pick a Brick to get the parts in red since those are the colors a local place uses.
Also love the figs, and since I have four Emmets now he has some coworkers.
Either way, I love this set and it's nicely detailed, well worth what I paid, I just can't wait to get a crane so they can prank each other."
"Recently I finally had the chance to visit a Lego store, and I told myself that when I did I would buy one of these, and I did.
I've been a fan of both Lego and Ghostbusters my entire life, and I am extremely happy to finally see the two combined and have it sitting on my desk right now.
I kind of wish it had lights like Brent Waller's fan model did, but hey, can't get it all, but what we did get is nothing short of awesome.
With the car itself, it took me around two hours to build it since I don't really sort my pieces, but it was a great two hours, and I could feel the love the Master Builders put into this thing, of both Lego and the Busters. The car is very close to dead on for Lego, and I love how easy it is to remove the roof, and far as I can tell everything on the roof rack is represented in full, though I may sometime soon design my son Super Slammer trap to add to it.
For the figures, I gotta say, I love them. Each one represents their respective buster perfectly, and the Egon Spengler figure is a great tribute to Harold Ramis. I only wish the tags had just their last names like in the movie, but the initials is a great idea either way, as are the printed on pack straps. As for the proton packs, love everything, I just wish the wands were a bit closer to their movie counterparts, but like I said, can't have it all.
I was also a bit miffed that unlike Mr Waller's pics Peter didn't get a custom hair piece, however, I did my research and the hair piece provided for Doctor Venkman is VERY close if not dead on to his appearance in the Ghostbusters IDW comic books. If this was on purpose, I have no idea, but awesome job nailing it Lego. The display stand is a nice touch as well.
And then there's the manual. I'll admit, I was a bit accustomed to the paper manuals we get with regular sets, stabled together, not many frills, and this being my first Ideas set, I was floored with the manual. Quotes from the four guys, facts about the movie, pictures. My only nitpick is Lego got the name of the main villain wrong. Gozer the Gozerian was the main villain, Zuul, the gatekeeper, was merely a minion, along with Vinz Clortho, the Keymaster. Would have been great to have figures of those three two, and maybe Walter Peck and Janine, but I might try to make Walter and Janine myself at a Lego store sometime.
I'll add that since talk of a possible third movie and revival has been going around, I REALLY hope Lego might do more with this, even if they dredge of The Real Ghostbusters and we get a Blonde Egon in a blue jumpsuit.
Overall, awesome set, well worth the money, and I may consider getting a second one, maybe try to turn it into Ecto-1A.
Also, thank you for including a brick separator, it saved my tail a couple of times.
