Beautiful set, rather flimsy
" Writing on behalf of my six year-old son...
The set looks GREAT. It has the look of the tv show, and the details are perfect. Added bonus: if you have a black light or blue LEDs, the neon colors in all the Prime Empire sets glow!
There are a few design flaws which cause the set to need constant repair work:
-The front piece attaches to the temple using two, small connectors. These small connectors cannot accommodate the weight of the front piece (be careful when lifting the set!), and if you were to move the front piece an inch to the left or right, it disconnects. Expect it to disconnect often.
-The temple is tall and narrow, and the weight is not distributed well (top-heavy). If the temple is not on a completely flat surface, it will tip backwards. To remedy this, we designed a tail-piece support to prevent the temple from tipping backwards.
-The two thin rooftop adornments are held onto the temple by small connectors. These tend to pop off easily with little to no pressure (don't sneeze!).
-Attaching the roof to the side support structures is slightly frustrating. There are six, independent supports (three per side). They need to be perfectly aligned when fastening the roof onto the temple. This could've been easier had the support tops been grouped together with two, flat 2 by 8's (I can't recall the exact #, going with my memory). If for any reason you need to take the roof off and reattach, it can be rather frustrating.
All in all, my son loves the set, loves to play with it, but I find myself doing far more maintenance work on it than any other set. "
