"This crane is amazing. My wife and myself put this together and it was a blast. Tons of really cool details. The amount of moving parts was really amazing. The thing is I was shocked at how well all the actions worked.
My only issue. If you attach the Lego beam to the crane hook to be lifted. Then extend the boom to it's max while at a 45 degree in the air and try to pick the provided beam up while the boom is to the side the crane will FLIP. My issue with this is, it should have been designed to pick up the object it was sent with in any position with out flipping over. Something simple like a small counter weight or larger feet would have solved this. That part is a real miss by the design team.
Now all that said, you should 100% buy this and build it!"
"This is a really cool set. We had no trouble putting it together. Honestly we had no trouble with flipping it over. We did this several times. I would recommend making really sure the trees are snapped into the house well. Even the lawn chairs held on fine. mind you I really don't think this set is meant to be ( Played ) with. If I handed off to a 12 year old of course it would not last the night. the only real issue we found was the flat longer pieces were more warped then any other Lego sets we have bought this year. Not sure why this is but Lego replaced them fast and really that was the only issue. I can say this is a really cute set and it's a lot of fun to build. There seems to be plenty of pictures already posted so I won't mess with that part."
