If you enjoyed the other Minecraft sets...
" If you enjoyed the other Minecraft sets then this will likely be a set you will have fun building. I like how they refined some of the earlier techniques and this build feels more polished. Its also cool how the building order completes each little section and then it comes together at the end.
However, while the set is large when you set it up next to previous sets like the Jungle Treehouse and The Mine it seems very overpriced for what you are actually getting. Also, for a set called "the Village" to only include 2 villager minifigures is a joke. Yes you do also get a zombie villager but it's the same torso we have gotten in many many many previous sets. For this price they needed to include some more exclusive elements and at least 1 more villager for the 2nd house.
Overall I am a fan of the set and it looks great on display. I am also thrilled that one of the designers I enjoyed watching on "Tested" was involved with making the set. "

a nice first Hoth set
" Having missed many of the previous Hoth sets I was thrilled to be able to start my collection with this set. The set is much larger in person than it appears in photos and in my opinion makes a nice display. It is not without faults, the main being the power generator imissing the 4th section and for an "assault" there should have been more snow troopers. Overall if you haven't gotten these items in previous sets I think this is a decent pick-up. "

awesome set but not without some flaws
" As a child of the 80s I knew I had to get this set on release day. It was a GREAT build experience, I enjoyed the way you build sections of the floors and then fit them together and the mini builds are top notch! Figures are also fantastic, I appreciate the inclusion of all the characters and ghosts - Slimer is awesome! A few cons: the smaller side of the building cannot be closed without hitting the edge of the baseplate due to its weight and there not being enough hinges on the sides to keep it in place and the set as a whole is very fragile. I feel like a set this expensive should have had those kinks worked out of it. Otherwise very pleased with the set and would recommend it if you are interested! "

Thank you for this!
" Thank you for making this wonderful set available to those of us who were not able to purchase this set the first time around - you made my holidays even more special this year. However, I do think you should have also made something else available to the other folks who already purchased it. I hope you also consider revisiting some of the early modulars in due time as well.

GREAT build, awesome set!!!
" The F40 is an awesome addition to the Creator series of cars and fits right at home with the VW and the Mini in regard to size and level of detail. For me the highlight of the this set is the build, the build, THE BUILD!!! IT IS SO MUCH FUN!!! There were so many cleaver techniques and parts going together in ways I have never seen or could have imagined. The designer of this model is a very gifted person.
There is nothing negative I can say about this set - it is truly one of the best sets I have built from Lego. Thanks for another GREAT creation! "

excellent detailed set but small
" The set looks great when finished and the colored bricks and stickers really bring the set to life(normally I do not like stickers but in this case I didn't mind). Although the piece count is really high the set is smaller than I imagined due to many pieces being small bricks and plates which are used to create amazing details on the inside. The micro builds of the arcade games and food aisles and freezers are so much fun to build. Overall I think this makes a better display set than play set and looking at it on the shelf I feel if they had included either more exclusive figures or one other build in addition to the police car it would justify the price. Overall I am very happy with the set an it looks great and the building experience was very pleasurable. "

nice display, easy build
" This set is HUGE when finished and looks GREAT. Other pros: exclusive minifigure, some nice big plates, several large printed pieces, learned a few new building techniques. As others have said the build is repetitive but I actually didn't mind that and I enjoyed the build. Cons: build was very easy - almost too easy. As an AFOL the build is the main reason I buy LEGO and it took just under 3 hours to finish the model and I took my time. Given the short build time the price also seems too high - but the finished display looks amazing so I do feel that balances out the high price so what. "

great for LEGO fans!
" This is a charming little set! The build is simple but very enjoyable and you actually create a decent little house which reminds me of sets I used to have when I was a child. The functionality is great: You can store a handful of pens in the main open area and then have rubber bands and thumb tacks or other items in the other storage compartments. You get some nice pieces too including the green baseplate and also 2 minifigs which really complete the set. I have one on my desk at work and ordered another for my home. This set would make a great gift as well for folks of all ages and even non LEGO builders could enjoy this set - highly recommended! "

Cool set
" This was a fun set to put together and I love the different levels of the mine, it displays really well. My only complaint would be my wish that it included more lava features and perhaps a few more ore - this is in fact the mine! Luckily I have the other sets so I can add on if I need to or create more. "
