Why Lego? Why?
" This set is horrible. I would apologize for being so critical in most situations but not this one.
My main problems with the set:
1. 7 figures for $140. That's just wrong Lego a set like this should have at least 9. And not even good figures almost half of them have no leg printing. not one of them have arm printing. if your going to rip me off in this way with only 7 mini figures then at least let them be good mini figures.
2. Very, Very, low stability I am a long time lego builder and I rarely encounter a set with this low stability. my son tried to move it no more than 5 feet and splits down the middle and breaks. Don't you have better designers to work on this? it feels tossed together with very little work put in on your part.
3. it took me and my son 6 wholes days to build this just because of how unstable and flawed it is. it took me 3 days to build Diagon alley, 4 for the death star, 5 for ninjago city all those sets are much bigger and supposed to be more challenging. Nope. this set was designed so poorly it would beat them all in difficulty.
4. playability I didn't buy this to play with it I bought it to build with my son. after 6 days of putting it together often getting extremely frustrated in the process he played with it for no more than 20 minutes and broke down into tears about not wanting it and wanting to return it to instead get and I quote "anything but this" this is coming from a child who I never have heard him say that ever before.
5. missing pieces this I don't blame on the designers. mistakes happen which I understand but really missing 2 pieces in the same bag? I ordered replacements online (not from lego.com)
I warn you all you should not buy this set get the Hogwarts's great hall, Razor crest, or something else but skip this set and the rest of the theme along with it I don't have enough time to write horrible reviews for all the monkie kid sets I have (Only 2 others fortunately) but have been disappointed with both skip this set if you don't want to spend $140 on a piece of plastic that will never be used and is a horrible building experience.
