There are many things to enjoy about Legos as an adult: 3 dimensional problem solving, a sense of accomplishment at completing the build, a moment to forget the world and just play... This kit had an extra 'wow' factor at the very end when it transformed into the Sydney Opera House.
I'm a convert, this is possibly my favorite of the architecture series. Kudos to the Lego designer on this one, I didn't think it was possible.
We both absolutely adored the Opera House and surrounding area, so I was just hoping it was faithful to that. Surprisingly, it 100% is; even the little spot I proposed to her at is on the set! I'm very impressed with how faithful to reality it is from the stairs and surrounding walkways to the sails themselves. I also really like the classy-looking instruction book with the interesting architecture facts, pictures and quotations.
Like I said, the traditional lego audience will not be entertained, but adults who love the building and are looking for a display piece will be pleased.
I this as a gift from my grandma who tries hard to educate me about all the places she has visited. She gave me the Sydney Opera House. First, I was really confused because it was Lego, but the construction looked so technical. I was surprised when I actually started building it. I scattered and organized the parts into separate piles. In the box, there were three different bags with three various sized legos. The instruction booklet was very well done. It has vivid drawings with VERY easy to follow 3D models of the pieces. I LOVE LOVE the fact that it is not geared or its demographic is not young kids. They can have regular Lego, but the is Lego Architecture. Overall, this is the perfect past time for any person, not kids. Are you sure this can't be educational (for in school purposes)? It should be! Oh wait, it is! On every page of the manual, there is fun, quick, handy information about the landmark you are builing. I finished the Opera House and I am displaying it on our coffee table. My grandma is really proud because I now know about who, when, where, why, and how the Sydney Opera House is famous. It was extremelly fun for me building, i couldn't leave the table. I HAD to do it! Thesatisfaction of clicking in a Lego peice is thrilling! I really hope this helps! I am getting more now.
If you own the or built these, the people at Lego are looking for feedback. I left great and positive feedback. Go to [...] legoSURVEY.com
Anybody familiar with straightforward Lego kits will appreciate the intriguing nature of the Sydney Opera House. Like the rest of the Architecture series this is not a large kit and is generally overpriced based solely on number of pieces and size; it makes up for paucity of pieces with a gentle introduction to some more advanced building techniques most recently employed in other "mature" kits.
I was immediately curious about the slight angles the opera houses had, deviating quite a bit from the standard 90º construction of most models I was familiar with. While I had ideas on the actual rotation, I wasn't sure how to mate them up with the rest of the model as seamlessly as they appeared. There's not a lot of magic behind the trick, but enough that if it's the first time you see it done you'll appreciate a particular piece in a new light.
Lego has been gradually allowing less "standard" construction in other more expensive kits and the Sydney Opera House is an somewhat less expensive gateway to that world.
Practically speaking, the end-result is a bit more delicate than I would have expected, but is tolerable as a model that doesn't see any rigorous use. The micro-scale is well executed yielding a generally accurate model, for somebody that has never seen the real thing in person.
And while I admit that this included booklet is nice, the model is clever, and the overall experience is more fun than building yet-another-kit I do have to admit that the MSRP is high and the end result could be a little more stable. But in general they're nitpicks that I can only really deduct a single star for.
