fun little builds in clever packaging
" Lots of fun little builds. Nice packaging: flap comes down for assembly/play surface; and then the finished piece (except for #8) will fit back into its cubbyhole. Tons of extra little pieces (see photo).
Only negative is the pile of little plastic bags - looking forward to the conversion to recyclable paper bags.

awesome functional concrete truck
" Although a little tricky to build at a few points, the end result is fantastic! Very cool that you can choose to have the drum turn automatically with the wheels or with the hand crank (or not at all - thanks for the neutral option as well). Steering mechanism very similar to the Mobile Crane, nice and smooth. The pistons moving with the wheels is a fun little touch (although you wouldn't normally want the pistons in the passenger cab, at least this way you get to see them moving). I'm not a fan of lots of stickers, but was able to get these on okay (long thin ones create the most difficulty). My only quibble is that there should a brake (maybe include chocks?), since the truck moves a bit when you use the hand crank unless you hold it. Highly recommended! "

enjoyable build of an iconic structure
" The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because of the blank face. But, I found JK Brickworks' easy modification to use pieces from the kit to create a good representation of the actual face, so I bought this kit and don't regret it.
Even with the repetition, it was an enjoyable build, especially the pedestal. Thankfully, the left and right-sloped pieces came in separate bags so that made it much easier to assemble the outer surface of the statue.
I recommend that LEGO modify the basic kit to incorporate face details in future production runs.

nice train, instructions need a little tweaking
" I like trains, so was happy to get this one. it was easy to build and looks cool.
however, the instructions could be improved a little. Like others have said, the black background looks cool, but makes it a little harder to see which pieces are being specified. P. 114 should be corrected to show that the top brown plates should be centered on the pieces below. As others have said, p. 52 should have a reference to p. 122 (or thereabouts) for installation of power. I figured something was missing and it's nice that it was set up to be easily disassembled, but it would have been helpful if they'd had a callout right there. The image on p. 126 showing how to offset the wheels should have been earlier (e.g., p. 124) so you don't have to look ahead or redo the wheels (this is minor, since it's just two pages, but still..). This might sound like nitpicking, but these changes can make it easier for less experienced builders.
