Top critical review
3 out of 5 overall
on September 18, 2012
Purchased this kit to make a lego case for a computer and, while I was able to complete the project, I am not really satisfied with the compromises I had to make to complete the case.
There were not enough of the thin blocks. The building plate was large enough, but it can only be used as a base plate. if you ever needed a large plate to complete the roof of something, you aren't going to find it in this kit.
Odd distribution of blocks. I can see including even numbers of particular blocks, since it at least allows you to achieve some sort of symmetry to satisfy your OCD (like me) but this kit shipped with odd numbers of blocks so I found myself switching colors because i could not complete a certain part of the case due to running out of the required color of blocks.
Sure...the review may seem a bit on the negative side...however, AFTER encountering the issues I mentioned, I still ordered TWO of the LEGO Police Station 7498s, the LEGO City Police Command Center 7743, and TWO of LEGO Bricks & More Deluxe Brick Box 5508 in addition to this kit.
I'd say you should have no problem determining how I rate Legos overall...even at age 44, lol.
