3rd Stage was Poorly Built.
" Overall, This is a great set. It doesn't have that much playability though, and the third stage was awful. It hardly connects and often falls off. Also, in the instructions, they didn't show you how to build a section on the side. Believe me, I went back and checked several times, but there were only instructions for 3 of the sections. In the end I just built it like the rest of them. The rocket was also almost disappointingly easy to build too.
Other then that, it's great, and the 4 printed microfigures were super cool. This was my first Ideas set, and if the others are anything like this, I will probably be purchasing more in the future. "

Nice car
" If you don't care very much about this looking like the real thing, then this is for you but if you want something that is just like the real thing, don't get this. Don't get me wrong, I really like this set and it gets the point across that its a Corvette, but the front is just way to square and its not the sleek rounded style that the Corvette is so recognizable by. The back has a lot of detail, but its kind of in a confusing jumble of stickers and parts. LEGO did a pretty good job considering the size of the car, but it still could have been just a little more sleek. The back of the car also is kind of like a big wall and when you look at it from the back,you can't even see the car over the big panel of stuff on the back. When you look at the car from the front, it just looks horrid, not at all resembling the real Corvette Z06, and, out of that big mass of ugly stuff, the windshield looks like someone put a box on top of it all and called it a car. Anyways, as far as looking at it from the side, its got great detail, with every little detail of the real Corvette on it. The interior is very well done, with a very nice driver seal with a head rest and everything. Also when you look at the car from above, you'll notice that it is very long and skinny, which looks really bad. The build its self was fun, and the basic car design is a nice one. The camera is a nice idea, but its very loose and tends to fall over. Of course this set comes with a wrench, like about every other LEGO set with a car in it does. Now the best part of this set is the racing suit. Its very nice and sporty looking, and says "Corvette Racing" on it, and the driver has a red helmet, which isn't very common. So if you want a Corvette that resembles the real thing, I'd recommend getting a scale model, but if you want a Corvette that just gets the point across that its a Corvette, get this. "

Well rounded!
" This is a very nice set. I really like the fishing rod and the shark. The minifigures are really cool. Its very well rounded, for instance the buoy, which could be a marker to show the fishers where the best fish are. There is also 2 compartments that you can put fish in. They are not in the pictures, but I included one in the pics I posted. This boat is very much improved from the last one, though the other was cool. all in all, this is a great set and very cool. "

Outstanding!
" This is a really cool set! I received this for my birthday and was instantly amazed with the detail as I started the build. When I finished building it I was very impressed at the creativity and detail in this set. The colors of the pizza van go together really well and the table is very creatively designed. The moped is very nice and congrats to whoever thought to use a bucket handle as a kick stand. I like the jar of bread sticks, though it took me a minute to find out what it was. The pizza is way more detailed then the pizza in the old pizza shop. I thought the pizza box was very cleverly designed. Overall this is a very nice set and I would highly recommend it to everyone. "

Cool accessories!
" This set is very nice and has some very nice accessories.
It is slightly overpriced for what what you get, but it has has some some stuff you see everyday in LEGO Sets.
the chicken is cool, but as for me I already have some of
those. Its a nice set and I Bought it mainly for the
accessories and they didn't fail me.
Side note to LEGO, how can I send a mini movie to LEGO?
I've made a stop motion movie and recently found out that LEGO will sometimes post them with other mini movies. Please let me Know lego, And preferably I'd
rather not do it through lego life.
Thanks!

Nice little thing.
" I got this as a free item with the high-speed chase set about a month ago so I can't really say if its worth the money since I didn't pay anything for it but if you ask me I think 4 dollars is a bit overpriced. I think 3 dollars would be more reasonable. Any ways, on to the review.
First of all I like the pilot. Its nice the way the radio cord covers up the POLICE on the back of the uniform a bit.
I know everyone else has thousands of these thing but for me this was a first. While I do have the helicopter from set 60046 I didn't have a small one, as many thing as I do have. (My brothers and I together have gotten about 200 LEGO sets in all) Its a nice little thing, and it has some small stuff I like. For instance the searchlight and video recorder. I do think they could have easily put a mailbox or something on the back of the helicopter as an compartment. I also like the controls and you all might say they could have put levers in but there really just isn't room.
All in all its a nice little thing though I'm not sure its quite worth the price tag.

Good.
" This is a nice set. lets get to the point.
Pros:
Nice space rover.
Cool astronots
nice computers
good egine man
Cons:
Why is there space rocks by the ground support computers?
Shouldn't the rover be on the moon?
How do they get to the moon? do they really strap the rover to there feet and take off with jet packs or some thing?
Whats up with the lights? They putting searchlights on the moon to look for crooks or something?
overall this is a pretty good set, though I never really got into the space stuff. "

Best set ever!
" This is the best set ever the best part is the fire truck the fire truck has A lot of options for its height. I'd recomend that you get it from amazon as it is only $65.99 on amazon. The pole is very nice works perfectly. The rotating doors work great and are very secure. I like the office as well. The bunks ad a realistic touch to it, though
I do wish that they would put 2 bunks there as the top story is quite empty with only 1 set of bunks. I also wish that they would give you something bigger to be on fire and that there would at least be more flames so i could at least put flames on sometthing else as it is very unrealistic for the fire deparment to bring out a whole ladder truck just for a small hot dog stand burning. Overall this is a great set and I would recomend this to everybody. Thanks for making this set LEGO!

I CAN'T STAND THE TOILET!!!
" This is a good set but hate the fact that LEGO has to put a toilet in just about every set. I wish it could just be a nice set with NO toilet or anything of the sort. I thought the grey brick peices were pretty cool and I liked the little
bobcat to. I like the all the minifigures but the superviser was my favorite. Overall a nice set, minus the toilet.

Terrific.
" This is an amazing set. I highly suggest you purchase this set. I really like the van and the caravan is good as well. If you are trying to put a woodsy area into your city
this would be especially great for you.
