Superb Lego Ship
" I've owned several Lego ships in the past, but this one by far is one of the most pleasing to the eye. It's by no means the biggest, but the shape, the layout, the colours and details, down to the stickers used for decor, are all so pleasing.
The build took me around 6 hours and features some fun little building techniques. Little things like the signage on the back of the ship, chimneys/pipes, foliage growing on board and bunting hanging between the masts make the ship a visual treat.
Unlike the other ships, it has no front mast (much like a traditional Chinese Junk ship) and took a while to get used to the stubbier-wide design with the dragon heads, but the overall look and details of the ship make up for this.
I recently bought the Silent Mary from Pirates of the Caribbean, and whilst I like that set, for less money Destiny's Bounty is so much more. "

Beautiful and challenging, but also repetitive.
" I felt I had to include the repetitive part in my title. A previous review said this model has "almost no repetition" which is a completely false statement.
If anything, like the tower bridge, this model is extremely repetitive, to the point where I was batch building the same assets over and over (see pics)
However, that's not a bad thing, with a little patience it's totally worth it for the end result. I don't think I own a more detailed, beautiful model. If I step back a couple of meters it almost doesn't look like it's Lego. It's comprised mainly of smaller pieces, so expect a fiddly, challenging build, but a rewarding one. "

Brilliant and totally Christmassy.
" I'm quite saddened when reading a lot of the reviews for this set, by the amount of people complaining that this set is not Christmassy. In Europe Christmas markets like this are a common sighting in the run up to Christmas. Little quaint stalls selling foods, game stands and little rides for children to go on.
This is a brilliant representation of that, for once the set has some great functionality in the form of the merry go round (you could fork out a lot of money for the retired Grand Carousel) it is vibrant and fun, and the exclusive new horses look fantastic. The set doesn't need to have a main building to be sufficient, I see it more as a nice accompaniment to the village buildings. "

Okay, not amazing, and sometimes frustrating.
" Being a huge fan of Lego and somewhat a fan of BTTF, I couldn't wait to get this set.
The car, overall, looks pretty nice, but as a model I get so frustrated with some of the poor design aspects of the car. Both figures do not properly fit within the car side by side. Due to the shallow nature of the roof, and that it's quite delicate, it very easily pops off if I try to successfully sit Marty and Doc side by side and shut the doors.
I also felt that the build was strange and felt clunky, being a LEGO fan I build a lot of models. Granted, it is a cuusoo model, so a fan will have built the original model, but it felt like there were an awful lot of small pieces being used to make the car. It felt more like a model I was making up as I went along out of my lego brick box, instead of cleverly utilizing larger pieces in a more appropriate and time saving fashion. Once completed I didn't have the same satisfaction I get when building other models.
To conclude ,if you're a LEGO fan but not really fussed about Back to the Future, Id put the money towards a different set. If you're a BTTF fan I guess this set is a must for the minifigs, if not the fragile, heavy DeLorean. "
