Construct one of the world's most iconic buildings in small, yet precise, detail with the Nanoblock Empire State Building. Using building blocks only millimeters wide, this fun and challenging set recreates the massive Empire State Building on a miniature scale. Standing just over 8 inches when constructed, this 740-piece set lets you create a detailed replica of one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World that fits in the palm of your hand.
Recreate One of the World's Most Iconic Structures
The Empire State Building is one of the most famous structures ever erected. For many years the largest building on Earth, the Empire State Building is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Using microsized building blocks, Nanoblock has recreated this iconic structure in precise detail on a truly miniature scale. This 740-piece set recreates the 102-story skyscraper in impressive detail, though the finished product is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
Our testing team found assembling this 3D puzzle to be an enjoyable and exacting task. Although it could probably be assumed, Nanoblock sets are more suited for those with smaller hands as opposed to larger ones. With easy-to-follow color directions, this puzzle can be enjoyed equally by young children as well as adults--though young children might have an advantage in assembling it as they have much tinier hands. Nanoblock indicates the intended age for this set is eight and up, but younger builders who are familiar with building blocks and following instructions would probably be able to complete this set without problems.
Precise 3D Minimodeling
Featuring building blocks as small as 4 by 4 by 5 millimeters (L x W x H ), Nanoblock uses a unique interlocking method called double fin technology to create pieces a fraction of the size of other blocks. Already a sensation in Japan, Nanoblock is bringing the 3D minimodeling craze to the rest of the world, offering fun and challenging puzzles for builders of all ages.

I will not lie the actual building of the tower has you repeat the same steps a number of times, as you could probably guess just like I did by looking at it so when you get to the tower portion it will get tedious. It is worth it though the end result is quite attractive and well worth the grinding through building floor after floor.
I have been looking forward to getting my hands on some new sets and Nanoblock did not disappoint. I plan on getting more as they come. The price point on this is a fair amount higher than most of their other sets in the $15-20 range. These do come with more pieces, most of my other sets range from around 320 up to 580 this one has 740, so when I found out that these sets are larger and have more pieces I figured it was worth the extra price tag. As a side note the Lego version has 77 pieces. The instructions are more detailed than their other sets in the same series which is nice considering there are significantly more pieces.
I know the cost is a bit high but go to that search bar and look at the Lego version of the Empire State and you will be drawn to this one just like I was. The Lego version is one color and basically has no detail especially compared to this. The Lego version you can find around $20 but when you see it you will know exactly why it warrants the lower price. Seriously buy this now it looks great it is worth the higher price tag.
It's good, it's not the most stable. I found that the skinny tower piece actually comes undone very easy with slight touch so you can easily knock it over. But it does look good once assembled as long as you leave it alone. Is it worth $34? (price as of 10/3/2012), I don't think so. I could see maybe paying $19.99 at the most. With a price tag of $35 I would pass on this.

One thing to think about: The package says they're suitable for young kids. The parts look like Legos, but they're very small, tiny, even. I'd think twice before giving one of these kits to a very young kid.
But I'm not a small kid, and I love Nanoblocks.
There is a lot of detail in the blocks and on the finished construction, and some of the pieces are small so you may have to pull out your glasses like I did on certain areas - the smallest pieces frustrated the kids a few times and I pulled out the tweezer portion of my mini Swiss Army knife to hold some of the pieces every once in a while. This puzzle is not really meant for taking it down and rebuilding a few times, so you may want to pick out a spot in your house to put it once you're done.
Overall, this was a lot of fun and based on the level of details in the puzzle / building it would be fun to do another one like this.
