Retired so pick up before it gets too expensive, wish I picked it up when I saw it in the store but got it for a price that wasn't too bad so can't complain
As is usually the case with these larger builds, LEGO organizes the bricks and pieces into numbered bags, which correspond with the order you will need to build. For most numbers, there were 3 bags - a large-pieces bag (long bricks or large flats), a medium-pieces bag (standard size bricks and odd pieces), and a small-pieces bag (all the tiny, easy to lose pieces). This really helps with a build this size so you can just focus on the pieces necessary for the current portion of the build. Even with the numbered bags, expect to do some digging.
Pros: The design is very creative. There are a number of unusual pieces that bring the whole build together. The completed product feels quite sturdy, so I'm sure this could be played with by kids with little or no worry of having to rebuild frequently. Seeing the finished product come together was great - very fun.
Cons: I was expecting a UCS build of an icon like R2D2 to be a little larger. Compared to the other UCS edition builds, this is the smallest in number of pieces and in completed product. The retractable 3rd leg is not easy to position correctly - it frequently ends up sitting on top of the power couplers on the side legs.
All-in-all this is a great set and would highly recommend it to any LEGO Star Wars fan.
My 11 year old put it together without any help and had no problems - no broken or missing pieces. Actually, we always end up with a few extra pieces, we have been lucky so far. Lego instructions are clear and easy to follow as per usual. It took him longer to work on this than on other sets, not because it was extremely difficult, it's a big time consuming piece, and requires lots of work and concentration. He didn't pay attention, made a mistake at the beginning and had to take it apart.
Legos are expensive, some of them are a bit overpriced, but not this one. You won't be disappointed! Looking at the latest Lego sets, all I can say is that Lego Design Team has the most creative genius people in it.
The age rating on the box should really be heeded, as this is a very complex build. I'm sure there are many kids under 16 that can tackle it, but only if they're very experienced with LEGO building already.
All in all, this was just a pleasure to build. Took me about 7 hours, and I consider myself an expert at building LEGO. I was slowed down a bit by my 6 year old son "helping" me build some parts, so I'm sure I could have done it in about 5.5 hours or so. I plan on disassembling and reassembling this at least a couple more times just because of how much fun it was to build.
+ Excellent LEGO quality
+ Challenging build
+ Cool functionality in the final product
+ Great value at MSRP of $180
+ Impressive display piece
- The third leg is a bit tricky to get to work properly. Not a huge con, but may frustrate some.
- Not really suitable for children to play with the final model. While it is fairly sturdy, it's not really designed for the type of play young children would throw at it.
