Organize the bags into piles of bags that look the same or just about the same.

I've been a Lego fan since I was a child and bought this product the moment I saw it. It took about 10 hours to complete. The final product is very tall (box says 42" tall, but mine measured about 45") and absolutely beautiful.
Amazingly there was not one point in the instructions that was in any way confusing. Only difficult part of building it is digging through the 3400+ pieces to find the one you need.
For years I've wished Lego would make models of real-world skyscrapers. I guess the Eiffel Tower probably falls more into the world monument category. Either way, I look forward to more world monuments and skyscrapers in the future.
Worth every penny!

My son (age 12) and I assembled this item together during the Christmas. It was challenge but fun. We helped each other to find the pieces and read the instruction. It took us four days to finish it (2 - 3 hours per day). I wish I can upload the finished tower on the website for you to see.

Okay, okay, I'm exaggerating: it's only 3428 pieces, and only 3027 of them are gray.

This is an incredible set, and looks amazing when finished. It's the most difficult build I have done, though I hear that the Ultimate Millennium Falcon is even harder.

The almost completely uniform color scheme demands a disciplined approach and plenty of multi-compartment trays. I hate to think what it would be like if I followed my usual habit of ripping open all the bags, dumping all the pieces in a pile, and building the coolest bits first regardless of official sequence. Some of the parts are packed in sorted bags (eg. the 230 gray 1x4x1 fences are packed in three bags). Other pieces are mixed in together, which means you have to sort them out, all the while grumbling about why they didn't sort all the pieces. Seriously, why sort some but not all?

The middle and top sections of the tower are relatively simple, and very sturdy. The lower section is both fragile and tricky. In some places the pieces are not so much locked together as balanced against each other. It is vital that you make sure all the pieces are aligned and tightly connected. A slightly loose piece in the bottom of the structure can be a huge problem for the pieces a foot above it. It's not easy to tighten two pieces after the fact without disturbing lots of other pieces.

For the first time ever I found some of the instructions hard to follow as the uniform color made it hard to figure out the perspective in the instruction drawings. Twice I found that two parts which were meant to join up were a tile-thickness different in height. I had to go back through the steps to figure out which teeny-tiny piece I had put in the wrong place, then dismantle and rebuild.

This a very challenging and rewarding model to put together. It is exceptionally well designed and the precision fit of the blocks for such a large model is marvelous. It looks great and impressive when finished. You have to be attentive every step of the building process due to its complexity. I wish Lego would start making more world monuments.

I have no idea WHY purchasing this seemed like the "ideal solution" for dealing with a cantankerous adolescent but...amazingly, it worked! Instead of the "parent", I was assigned the role of "occasionally helpful assistant". I was wowed by my offspring's persistence, guidance and skill in putting this together. Meanwhile, there was some chat here and there, all appreciated (by me, at least).

It was a learning experience....and I'm not talking just about the task of finding exactly which pieces went where. That was indeed a challenge! More important? Getting outside our usual routine and doing something different. He was the seasoned Lego pro and I was the apprentice.

Some words of advice about building this truly amazing structure: it is delicate but not complicated to complete. We did have part of one level come apart, temporarily, when applying pressure to get a piece to stick. That only happened once and we upped our learning curve.

You need to pay attention to the height and width of every piece to make sure you do indeed select the exact...right..piece... and the drawings and instruction booklets could have had more details, although my son didn't find them impossible to follow. I have no idea why the pieces aren't sorted so that you can find them when you come to the next step of the directions...but they aren't.

There are three books of directions for this one. It doesn't come together quickly and having a partner sure helped when piecing together some of the more delicate and flimsy sections.

It actually looks nice when displayed too! I don't think I could have done this on my own.

I purchased this set a couple of weeks ago and just finished building it today, I must say I haven't been this impressed with a lego set in many years.

You don't understand how large it is until you have finished it. By the time I put the spire on I was amazed.

The actual building of the set isn't complicated, you can actually figure out how to build the different levels by building the first couple w/o the instructions, but can be frustrating due to the thousands of tiny pieces that comprise the set. Three or four times I spent 10+ minutes searching the sprawling pile of pieces for the elusive piece.

You build the set in three stages. The first stage is the base and is the only section I have any complaints about. The base is very fragile, don't even think about trying to lift it up by any way other than the base plates. The fragile nature is a consequence of just how well the set resembles the real thing so it is acceptable, just be careful. The middle and top stages are much more sturdy and easy to handle.

I was missing 15 pieces which made finishing it complicated but Lego is very good and prompt about replacing them so it did not turn out to be an issue.

I highly recommend this set if you are into the model sets, not much fun for playing.
