I love this set. It is my first LEGO set and I'm 47 years old! When I was a kid in the 60's I had an Erector Set and loved it. I knew two kids with LEGO. One had a Mother from Germany, and the other had an Airline Pilot for a Father.

I was creating my LeGummies Lego brick shaped Gummi Candy Instructable for Instructables.com and needed some Lego pieces to make the silicone candy mold.

I looked around for a general set of assorted pieces and couldn't find one in a store. I went to Lego.com, saw this set and fell in love. At the time it was still exclusive and could only be purchased from Lego.com so I bought it there.

I'm an architecture fan (I've given historic architecture tours for over 20 years - it's my passion). Since the Taj Mahal is arguably the most beautiful building in the world, I had to have it.

I was concerned the model would not do the building justice. I thought it might look like a cartoon with broadly drawn details. Boy was I wrong. The model is stunning. There are small gorgeous details that can only be seen when you get close.

When standing more than a few feet away, you can see that the proportions are wonderful.

People see a set like this and often think it must be full of custom parts that are only useful, or used in this model. I don't think there are any parts that only work for this model. It seems that these pieces are all stock. When you see them up close you realize they were not designed for this use, but to be something entirely different. As an example most of the beautiful decorative curved details are made of parts from hinges.

When I received the box I was lucky enough to have the next 3 days free. I started building immediately and didn't stop except to eat, sleep and shower.

A cool LEGO set to own and show off. However, you can buy directly from LEGO's website for $299.99 (as of Nov. 2008).

This is a GREAT set!!!! Looks very nice when completed and was a ton of fun to put together. The set itself is built very solidly except for the tower sections that get placed on the corners. They can be a little wobbly when moving around so I would recommend leaving them down until you are completely finished or place a small amount of glue down to increase stability. I would highly recommend this set to anyone looking for a good challenge and something to spend some extra time on.

My daughter (11 years old) and I built this over the course of two weeks. I work two jobs, and since she's in school with all the homework and extra-curricular activites that entails, we were only able to build in many 1-2 hour stretches over that two-week period. This set is by far the largest set I own, about twice as many pieces as some of the other sets (UCS Death Star II, UCS Star Destroyer, Eiffel Tower). My son (16 years old) intends to tackle this as a solo-building challenge.

The biggest suggestion I would have is to make sure you have the time and space set aside to properly sort your pieces. At 5900+ pieces, sorting saves a huge amount of hassles / headaches down the road. Most of the pieces in this set are 1x1 plates in varying colors - these can be put into small bins or baggies. As we tend to build and rebuild my sets, I will be sorting the pieces and putting them into individual baggies and bins for storage.

I am an architect, so it's always interesting to me to build Lego renditions of real-life structures. This set appears to get the basic proportions great, and there are lots of nice little details (the windows, arches, color separations, alternating ridge checkerboards, center steps to name a few (but not all) of my favorites. The onion domes are great examples of SNOT (Studs Not On Top) building techniques. The size of this set appears just about perfect for the detailing it contains - very nice balance overall.

This is the largest lego set they make, or close to it. We have TONS of legos in our house. This was the capstone. My son took 3 days to assemble it after Christmas, but he did do it himself. He still has it assembled in his bedroom, and it has been over a year now. You can put some kind of a light in it, too, to make it light up. This set is not for the casual lego builder. It does take quite a bit of time to get done. But, once done, it looks very nice, and the assembler has every right to be proud of what he has accomplished.

Fantastic!

On first sight it was overwhelming. Almost 6,000 pieces. Huge. Insane. But the instructions take you through step by step, and working on it part time for half an hour after dinner, it was done inside of four weeks.

The end result is incredible. It is a large model that takes up space on my largest coffee table. I have been to the real thing, and this model does it justice. I am very satisfied!

Bravo Lego!

This is an AMAZING set! In my opinion, it might be the best set LEGO has produced...it's definitely in the Top 5. It also has the most piece of any LEGO set.
