Enjoyable build
" Very straight forward & enjoyable build. Would be a good first build for those new to the Technic theme.
The control function works well, you need a fair bit of room as its turning circle is quite wide. My only very slight niggle with this model is the lack of dash detail for the cab and for me the cab looks a bit unfinished. I bought this set to go with set 42100, Liebherr Excavator, & though they are not quite the same scale think they go well together. "

" Fun small build of an iconic helmet. Easy to construct, looks good. "

It's ok but should have been more accurate
" Bought all three of the Star Wars helmets. This is the least impressive which is a shame as its probably the most iconic.
The range finder looks out of scale to me and why is there yellow flashing down one side of the helmet. The photo's in the building instructions show the helmet as it should be, the whole top of the helmet should be the same colour.

Best looking of the three helmet sets
" Nice small build, clever design, If you were to only going to buy one of these Star Wars helmets series this is the one.
I bought all three sets and this is the most striking of the three. Like how the oxygen intakes incorporated into the display stand & the pre-printed pieces look so much better than stickers.

Charming chess set
" Good amount of Lego for the price and a straight forward build. So good for Lego fans and nice to have a set with long term functionality. Felt the checkers for too small so added elements to make them bigger but that was my choice & isn't a fault with the set as such. My only slight niggle with the chess pieces are that I feel the king & queen pieces look too similar, felt there should have been a more distinct different appearance to them. "

Finished build is impressive
" There are lots of reviews which mention repetitive sections in this build, sorry but what did you expect? This is an iconic large building of course there are lots of sections the same, that is part of the challenge. The main problem I had with the build was some of the sections are quite fragile and come apart easily, so be prepared for some frustrations and you need a lot of room to build and display the model.
The finished model goes together well and looks great & I'll probably add lights once I decide where to display it.
Would like to see more large iconic builds like this. "

Fun build with cool lift drop
" I bought this to fill in time during lockdown. It was a fun distraction and there are some great touches. I got the lift to work fine. I would have liked to have been able to display it with the lift right at the top with the upper lift doors open, but the mechanism doesn't seem to allow this, as the lift drops when you get it to the top. Worth the money & a good addition to any Lego collection. "

Empire state of mind
" Lockdown boredom to alleviate
Lego shop's open again - towards it I gravitate
Just finished the Sian what to build next
From difficult builds I need a rest
Lego budget getting tight, which model would be right?
Got some space on a window sill, so something to catch the light
The Empire State box caught my eye, I like these smaller repetitive builds, you don't have to tax your brain
Just let the calming bricks their magic down on you rain
So not the biggest of builds but satisfying all the same
The finished build does not look lame
It has a kind of golden hue & looks just right on the window sill too.
So I recommend this build to you

Nice model but problems+++ with build
" I only gave this 3 stars because of multiple problems with the building process. The finished model looks really good and I like the different hues of the green, adds a uniqueness to the model. The engine is well designed, & looks good so am mystified as to why the engine cover isn't hinged so it can be displayed with the engine visible. The doors are supposed to open but despite rebuilding for the 4th time mine stay shut, so be it. The main bonnet hinge was a real pain & I think badly designed. Very pleased that the logo's come pre-printed on the brick, makes for a much better appearance and should be the standard hence forth for these large expensive technic models. "
