"The build overall is very simple with one or two instructions per page, I actually skipped 4 or 5 steps ahead and just looked at the images to see where most of the pieces were laid out which made the build time a bit shorter. Overall an enjoyable build and would really suite a younger audience for play.
For display purposes you can see the comparison in width vs other ships (quite bulky), which is good if you have the space. Opened up it is far to long to realistically be put in a Lego city; however, the interior has quite good features with a lounge, toilet, computer terminal, tool areas and good storage for the added wave runner vehicles.
I also liked the varied selection of mini-figs and am sure I can find a place for them throughout my city.
The only really negative I had was that the back connection is clipped on by two narrow bars and a simple clip piece. I feel if Lego had have made it a ball and socket joint or at least a couple of bar holder clips it would have been much more solid. I only opened it three times before displaying it and the connection came loose twice."
