"First let me say that Lego is so creative in their builds and attention to detail. We have completed numerous Creator Expert sets and look forward to the new additions each year. We have had our eye on the London bus and decided that it would be a great build during the pandemic lockdown. It did not disappoint in the details and fun as a set. So appreciated the quick and safe delivery as well.
Both my husband and I have been Lego fans since we were children and our kids looked forward (and as adults still do) to a Christmas Lego gift every year. Every so often non lego building bricks ("compatable" - but not really) would make their way into our lego bin. It was so obvious which ones did not belong because the quality of the Lego bricks were so superior. Needless to say those bricks were quickly removed from the bin. While my husband and I were working on the bus we both noticed that the quality of the Lego bricks in this set reminded us of those cheap "compatible" ones. This is the first set that we have experienced this and we were so surprised that the bricks were significantly lighter, and the plastic seemed so much cheaper. Even the finished product looks like a plastic toy rather than a classic Lego display piece. I really hope this isn't the new trend - and I am hopeful that it is not because we have completed sets that came out after the bus and had no issue with them. Lego and quality have always been synonymous. Hoping this will always be the case."
