OK, I know what most people want to hear...
What is in the box:
1210 LEGO pieces (and no, I haven't actually counted them - yet) in 16 plastic bags. Two clear plastic trays each with four sections (each section is 2 3/4" x 5" x 1"). And the "Create your own architecture" book, which is 271 pages (8" x 7 1/4" x 1) - printed on fairly heavy paper stock.
The book was the first thing I pulled out and started browsing. Haven't read it completely through - but it appears to be a brief but well laid out introduction to architecture, as well as a guide for getting starting with building things with the LEGOs. Lots of pictures and lots of drawings. There are also a number of tips to get different effects using some of the special pieces in the set - like making windows look inset into a wall. I can say that I will definitely be spending some time going through this book.
Given the number and variety of pieces you get with this set, there should be enough combinations to make just about anything that I can imagine. But, keep in mind - this set isn't intended to build large scale models like the other sets in the Architecture series - it's to explore shapes and design layouts. Also, while there are a number of pieces that will allow you to add a bit of detail to what you build - this set is more for creating a conceptual design. Except for some clear transparent pieces, the whole of the set is white pieces. There are 1,210 pieces in this set - but a lot of them are small pieces.Read more ›
This may be somewhat less satisfying for people who love figuring out LEGO instructions step-by-step and treating the spatial stuff as a kind of speedy brain puzzle, clicking the parts together perfectly and fulfilling a pre-set plan. At times I feel a little lost with the set. But I consider it more of a challenge and less of a downside.
Bonus: there are SO MANY PLASTIC BAGS TO OPEN. It's like popping bubble wrap or taking the protective covering off of a new cell phone screen...a rare treat and delight. I'm savoring them and opening them slowly, one by one.
The sorting trays are flimsy. I was hoping for some quality acrylic trays but these are just floppy old plastic things. The box is a nice storage chest but will fall apart after a few months.
ONE MAJOR CONCERN I have about the pieces is that there is an inconsistency in the color temperature of the white ABS material the LEGO is molded from. The majority of the blocks are a uniform warm white with a pinkish cast, but there are also "cool" white pieces that lean towards blue/grey. Also, one kind of block (the 2x6? block) all came with dented/chipped corners. I will contact LEGO about this.
I'll update after I spend a few more days with this.Read more ›
You have to really think on a small brick scale. This set does come with a number of TINY
levels, and that's what you should think on when building. Other than that warning, this
set ROCKS. The book is big and very informative, but does NOT tell you what to build.
It is a guide. You are the creator here, and that is a lot of fun. I've built several
of the houses in the Architecture series and this fits in with those. I would HIGHLY
recommend you buy a large plate to build upon. I hit my local LEGO store and got a good
sized one for only $4.99. Other than that, you can build for years!
My friends didn't like that is was all white, but this looks nice in a building after you
have finished it. You can always supplement with colored bricks from any other collection.
AND, Lego sells this set directly for $149. I don't know where the other's have been looking
but you can get it from the source for that price like I did. 2 fun thumbs up on this set.
