Best of the Creator Expert Vehicles. A+++
" This is definitely the best of the LEGO Creator Expert vehicles.
First of all, the details on this set are outstanding. You may as well be looking at the car itself. Secondly, I love all of the added parts you could attach to equipped it up. It really turns into an experience. With so many possible combinations, as well as the multiple license plates, there’s an endless number of ways to display this set. Third, there is some repetition, but not too much to the point of making the build boring.
Overall, this set is definitely worth the investment. "

Amazing set. So much fun to build. A+++
" This is definitely one of the better Star Wars UCS sets ever created.
Aside from the engines, there is almost no repetition. The detailing adds a lot of pizzazz to the final product.
Overall, this was definitely worth the investment. "

Amazing Set. Fun to Build. A+++
" It was a lot of fun to build. Even though it has a lot of repetition. It’s not crazy repetition like some other sets I’ve built. The set is built sturdily and can be easily transported in one piece.
I love the little accessories and kiosks added to give it a more theme park feel. The track looks amazing and is very well designed.
The biggest flaw for this set is definitely the lift chain. I had to recount the number of pieces about a dozen times.
If you have the Ferris Wheel and the Carousel, then you absolutely need to get this one. "

Great Price for an Amazing Set! A++++
" This is by far one of the best sets I’ve ever built. It has a lot of amazing detailing with almost no repetition. The price for the amount of pieces was amazing, also considering it’s Harry Potter.
I love how it was one bag per section, with likely not more than 200 pieces per bag, meaning you didn’t have to search through hundreds of pieces just to find the right one.
Some of the detailing was impressive, like the stained glass windows and the towers as well as all of the arches.
This set was definitely a great investment. "

Best Lego Set ever. A+++++
" This is by far the best Lego I’ve ever bought. It was a bit of a challenge which I like. There’s almost no repetition which I love. I hate sets that are symmetrical where you’re doing the same thing over and over. This set was definitely not like that. It has amazing detailing like most of the other UCS models. I really like that you can change the satellite and characters to match the movies it’s been in.
Definitely my favourite Lego to date. "

Great Value for a Star Wars UCS
" I bought this one so I could have both R2-D2 and BB-8. It was definitely a good investment. It was a lot of fun to build. There was almost no repetition. It would have been awesome if it was able to roll.
Overall, I love it. "

Great set. Amazing price. A+++
" I’m an avid collector of the Creator Expert line. This is definitely one of the better set. It is extremely detailed and displays amazingly. I love that it can be taken apart into pieces for easy transportation.
The biggest flaw is that it has way too much repetition. Basically you could almost cut it into four equal parts.
But this is definitely one of the best sets that I have bought. "

One of the best sets ever created
" This is definitely one of the greatest sets ever created. The amount of details is amazing. You can display it multiple ways which makes it interesting. I love how the figures are exactly to scale of the rocket. There is some repetition but, in this set, it's okay.
The moon landing ship and the ocean landing ship are both great additions to the set and make it amazingly complete.
Definitely the best IDEAS set made so far. "

Fun to Build.
" This is a great set to build. The animals are so much fun to build. It is well structured. The biggest flaw is the repetition when you reach Bag Set 5. Overall, I loved it. "

One of the best sets I ever purchased
" This set is definitely amazing and fun to build. It does have a little repetition but not as much as most sets I've built. It displays amazingly and looks great among my collection. The price was great for the amount of pieces despite the Disney licensing.
Overall, great set. "
