Love it!
" It's a great and creative design, fitting the show.
The minifigures are all accurate and well-designed, although I bemoan Hopper's lack of hair. (I would have liked Eleven to be more detailed though; an alternate expression/extra head, printing to represent her shaved head, etc.) I also wish there could have been more characters, but understand that there is a limit. But back to it, they're adorable, and the Demogorgon is just incredible.
The colours and added details are simply amazing. The tiling for the house's outside works very well.
The big feature of the set wherein the real world connects to the Upside Down is very rewarding. It's very sturdy.
I did have some problem lining up the square poles to the rest of the house with both houses, but that's simply my own experience.
If you're a fan of LEGO or Stranger Things and have the money, I'd definitely propose buying this set. "

Pretty fun
" I don't understand why the Basilisk is black instead of green, first off (I also don't know why these new joint pieces are always in light grey.)
This is a nice set.
The minifigures are very well-designed; I might call them the best part.
Hogwarts is back, and this version is distinctive from past versions, while also being accurate to the films/books.
There's a lot of space to move around the characters in the set, and I really like the brown gate pieces used just outside of the dining hall. "

It's alright
" Duke Caboom is really the best part of the set.
The printed wall part is quite too good too though.
It's what it sets out to be; a basic build. And it's quite nice to look and have nice playability.

Loved it
" The model is very well-designed and it's fun to switch between versions. Although I think the connection between the two halves of the suitcase could be better done with a technic pin than a clip, the set is otherwise near-perfect.
The figures are very nice and add well to the collection.
The customer gets a very good value; better than a fair price.
It's very aesthetically pleasing in general. "
