A very cool Jet
" I enjoyed putting this together. The power functions are very clever. The fan bay opening for the VTOL is extremely well done.
My only problem is when people play with it and open the bay and turn on the fan, if they bump it, the fan can get dislodged. I have rebuilt that part of the model twice now.
The model is a lot of fun after you finish it, it looks good as a display piece. It is fun to play with, an all around good model. "

Very fun, fast and ingenious
" I purchased two copies of this to put the A and B builds on a shelf together. Both are really quick builds and look good. It took an hour to build both of them.
The rotors are clever and I thought they would be tied to the wheel, but this is not how it is in the original builds.
The designer did a good job on both designs, they are clever and the A build rudder controls are well done. "

Fast build, great to play with afterwards
" This is a really slick build, very quick, but once you are done it there is a lot of fun to be had.
I sat down Friday after work and put it together. Once it was done the fun began. The detail is nice, and the truck is a great exta touch.
The ramp on the linear actuators is a great feature, and could be used in many othe models. The crane is a really slick idea that I never wod have thought of doing that way.
Whoever designed this, thank you, it is a fun one. "

I like Iron man, how about you?
" It was a very quick build, and I am leaving it on the desk. So far all it does is ride the LEGO scissor lift.
It went together really quickly, no surprises there.
It looks good, but it is more of a display piece than a play with piece.
All in all, it is cute. "

Nuch better than the last Vader model
" This model is much better looking than the last Darth Vade model.
The designer usd pneumatic couplings in a brilliant way!
The ability to move the arm from the back us a good touch! Terrific design,
Glad I purchased this. "

Fast build looks good on the desk
" This was my first brick head, It will not be my last.
The thing looks good, almost like the old eight bit video games of yore.
I like it. "

So much fun after done, and it has chains!
" The two/three items look outstanding and the back hoe has caterpillar drive. That can be a drive chain or something else if you are making a MOC.
The orange color stands out from the normal construction sets.
It was cleverly designed and the vehicles, once completed, are almost as fun as the cherry picker. (Un-retire that one already!)
In short, it has more playability than I thought it would. It was a longre build due to the treads and putting them together. I also bought another copy of this to get the treads for another project.
Kudos! "

A fast but fun build
" The build has no major surprises. It looks good. The winch and pop-up light are the best features.
It goes well with the airport rescue vehicle, I guess they were designed to play together.
All in all, a fun fast build which has some good playability after it is completed.
My one criticism is the rope/string/cable on the winch should have been stronger so it can lift larger items. "

A challenging build
" I would have done this much faster, but I used the wrong pieces in one area, and had to rip it apart again to rebuild it right.
This is a challenging build which is now part of my county fair. I really enjoyed this set. It is again a hybrid Lego/Technic set.
The Lego minigifs can ride the animals, and they really are very cool the animals go up and down exceptfor the swan. The frog is the hardest to make stable.
The decorations on the canopy are very easy to bump and have them fall off. The merry go round would go really well with a music box which can be driven by the same crank/motor.
It is really a pretty piece and can be moved by picking it up from the base which is stable. Don't try to grab it like my friend did on the canopy, It was a lot of time repairing it once it came apart.
To summarize, a fun and challenginig build. Well designed. When you move it, do so by the base. "

Very detailed set, well worth the effort.
" If you are a fan of the series this is a set worth building.
Target has this set in stock, and it is so clever. I really enjoyed putting this together and displaying it on my table, the set is a really good approximation of the apartment where Leonard and Penny live now. (In the series)
It has all the primary cast members in minifig form, adorable and very cool! "
