This is our third model from the architecture series. We had previously completed Fallingwater and the White House, so my review will mostly be a comparison of how Big Ben relates to those models.

Building: My 9 year old son and I put this together in probably about an hour, which was much less time than it took to build the other two.

Size: The model was a bit smaller than I had anticipated. I imagine this is the case for a lot of the "skyscraper" models in the architecture collection though. To put this in perspective, the base for Big Ben is probably only one-fourth that of the White House and even less than that when compared to Fallingwater.

Detail: This is where the Big Ben model really shines. The detail on the tower looks great and I'd say outshines the other two models.

Durability: The tower isn't particularly stable and isn't going to hold up to a lot of play, but I don't expect that from the architecture series. These models are all fun to put together and display somewhere, but probably shouldn't be used as an active "play" toy.

Overall, we enjoyed building this model and are looking forward to our next build in the architecture series!

The Lego Architecture: Big Ben model does a fantastic job of capturing the feel of a British icon. The choice of brick type and composition gives the appropriate impressions such as the "soaring" vertical lines and pointed spires that are so evident in Gothic and Neo-Gothic architecture (Big Ben is Neo-Gothic). While not absolutely perfect in its depiction it leans more towards being impressionistic like most of the smaller Lego Architecture models; It is in this mode that the model is really quite fascinating, because it strives to use the least number of bricks to produce the largest amount of detail.

So, because this model is so specific it's difficult to list "Pros and Cons" because different people will get different things out of this model. So, let me point out the perspective from which I'll be rating: I'm an adult fan of lego, architecture student, and I own all of the Lego Architecture products, with that disclaimer - Here are my Pros and Cons.

Pros

+ Like other Lego Architecture models, Big Ben looks great as a display piece.

+ This product is small (7.7 inches tall); if you're a fan of miniatures you'll love it and it won't take up a lot of shelf space when displayed

+ Lots of detail for it's size.

+ Interesting additional information included in glossy instruction book.

Cons

- Slightly repetitive building during some parts of the construction.

- Steep price for non-collectors who might like to buy just this one model.

Neutral

? May or May not be fun for a child, really will depend on the child

? May or May not be worth the steep price, depending on your needs

I purchased this set from The Lego Store for a friend who was moving to London. My friend who is in his mid 20's grew up with me playing with Lego's and he loved it. Goes together quickly and is just like the Lego's you grew up with as a kid. My friend has this set on his desk at work and has told me people comment on it often and it's really a great piece, very professional looking. Even the fact card that comes with this set is fantastic. The kit price is a bit high, however I'm sure this has a bit to due with licensing and other factors. This item is definitely a keepsake.

This was my son's first Lego Architecture set and about 20th Lego set overall. He completed it in two sittings totaling about an hour and a half (I hoped for more time for $27). Most of the 346 pieces belong to just a few types, so finding the right part is very quick.

The set would be a lot of fun for a detail-oriented kid who can follow clear and precise instructions. The resulting model is cute and elegant.

The set is labelled "12+" which I think is misleading. Generally Lego's age ratings are pretty accurate.

These are nice but small. We have purchased two items from the Architecture series and we really like them but they are small. If you are expecting a long night of Lego building you will be disappointed.

The details are very awesome! It is kinda small, but I knew it would be because of other peoples reviews. The whole model is about eight inches tall when completed. The instructions have fun facts all throughout them. It comes with all the parts and a couple of extras. It is a great desk item, but not really a toy.

The LEGO Architecture series is one of our family's favorite Lego sets to assemble, and the Big Ben was fun for our family to sit down and complete. The instructions were easy to follow, the bricks fit snugly together, and the completed piece looked very detailed, but small. This is probably the largest gripe I have about this particular series - while the completed sculptures are very nice, they are a lot smaller than many of the other Lego sets out there. Pricing aside, the kids still had a great time, and the completed piece was nice enough for me to want to keep out and display.

Overall, for fans of architectural pieces, the Architecture Series from Lego won't disappoint. This set can be assembled by kids much younger than the suggest age range as well.
