3.0 out of 5 stars Big box is deceiving..., September 3, 2007
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LEGO Ultimate Building Set - 405 Pieces (6166) (Toy)
This big "ultimate" lego box looks so big but once you open it and the bags they are in, it ends up being about 1/4 full which is disappointing. It is a good starter set but I think you need at least 2-3 of these boxes to make anything interesting over a few inches.

Update: My daughter likes these legos but has gone back to her trusty duplos since they offer more variety, height and ease of use. I will try and get a bulk set to add to these but legos are very expensive for what you get. Within the 405 pieces, many are only one tiny square big or half the depth as a basic lego - meaning you have to stack 2 on top of each other to get a basic lego height. They seem very hard to put together too. Overall I am very disappointed in the purchase.

The big box is so you can buy additional pieces and store them all together.

I agree with the original message: so many Lego products have a HUGE container for a few bricks. More than once I've felt ripped off by Lego packaging.

In response to Sarah: Yeah, I get that but if they put enough blocks in it to begin with you wouldn't need to buy more. Enough people have expressed dissapointment in quantity that LEGO should pay attention!

W.Yu - that's very offensive. People are nasty when they think nobody can see them behind their username.

Honestly W. Yu, didn't you learn in kindergarten: if you have nothing nice to say, than say nothing at all. Geez.

I'm confused. How can 405 pieces be a small amount?

A. Poole says:
i guess because a piece that is TINY is counted as a piece... sorta like the 10 piece set of expensive pans.. and 5 of them are lids!
Same kinda thing I think

That makes sense. Thank you.

Amen. I hate that sort of manufacturers thinking. Like the Legos, I feel quite ripped off.
