This review is from: LEGO The Mill 4183 (Toy)its lego. fun for all ages. over the years, quality got worse and worse, and finally, lego listened to the complants and suggestions of the people that have been buying the product for years. newer set doesnt have loose legs, printing is more even. whats more, the instructions arent dogeared. they come in plastic bags with a board that keeps them flat.
lego has made lots of collabs over the years. they made toy story, prince of persia, indiana jones, and even batman. this newest edition (but soon to be old, cars 2 legos is coming out) happens to be the pirates of the caribbean series. it came out just in time for the forth movie, on stranger tides.
this particular set is from the second movie, dead man's chest. it features the bell tower where will turner and admiral norrington fight over the key to the chest, and the wheel of the mill that contains studs on the inside and outside for your minifigs to be placed inside of for play or show. this set is missing the lil part of the columns from the movie where most of the swordplay takes place.
this set contains 3 minifigs. you get jack sparrow, admiral norrington in beat up clothing, and hadras - the crewman from the flying dutchman whose head gets knocked off and turns into a hermit crab (which is unique currently onto to this set). a new component for legos, is that they have "sling" shaped pieces that are placed like a messenger bag over the character, which allows them to hold their swords in their sides, when not in use.

This review is from: LEGO The Mill 4183 (Toy)My son (7-1/2) bought this with his allowance and he loved putting this set together. It's neat that there are some moving parts to this and he was able to follow the instructions pretty much all by himself. He absolutely loves the Pirates of the Caribbean series so this was a great addition too the rest of his Pirates Legos.

This review is from: LEGO The Mill 4183 (Toy)My Grandkids love Legos! This set traveled to Vegas for a Christmas gift and I received a wonderful note thanking me for the gift. Legos are always a welcomed gift. They are challenging with a great result and gift when the project is completed. I try to purchase them for every holiday.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome,
This review is from: LEGO The Mill 4183 (Toy)these are all awesome packs and sets. my son got three different ones for xmas, (he's just six years old) and he had them put together in two days and was playing away! **That's not to say they are easy or that all six year olds would do that... he's just obsessed and he'll sit with the instructions and work and work til it's done. The sets are very detailed with fun moving parts and people from the movie scenes. great sets!
5.0 out of 5 stars legos,
This review is from: LEGO The Mill 4183 (Toy)My son was thrilled with this gift for christmas. My only complaint was that the box was a bit damaged in shipping and with Lego's the box does count for future resale value. The item however, was in excellent condition and he loved it.
5.0 out of 5 stars He loves pirates. He loves legos. I couldn't go wrong.,

This review is from: LEGO The Mill 4183 (Toy)This set, based on a scene from a Pirates of the Caribbean movie, is fun to build, has great play features, and is good value for the money.
The build begins with putting together the four detailed minifigs. Next, you build the base of the mill, which is full of nice little details. Small pieces are used to give the walls a texture (a common feature in recent Lego sets); there are also stickers which are printed with rock overlays. Brown flat pieces are angled on the roof plates to give the impression of a ramshackle building. One side of the mill is a bell tower, which has a zip line -- a minifig can grab the handle of one end of a rope, and the other end is tied to a bell weight, which can drop, pulling the minifig upwards. The final part of the build is the mill-wheel itself. This is slightly tedious and has to be done precisely; the instruction book has a scale diagram that may help children do it properly. The end result is great, though -- the mill wheel sits on an indentation on the base, and there's a level that lets you pop it up so it rolls away freely. The wheel also spins, but you can balance swordfighting minifigs on top of it as long as you're careful to place them so they keep the wheel in equilibrium.
Recommended for anyone who is buying multiple Pirates of the Caribbean sets, or appreciates clever Lego design.
