The scale of the (near)-finished rocket is majestic. The build was a lot easier than other huge LEGO sets I've done, maybe because of 4 identical side panels or 2 similar sets of 2 - could find parts and assemble all at once. The main building challenge was aligning those side panels when attacking them to the center core.
I liked how the stages were securely attached but easily detachable.
Either way, half price for a Technic set is OK by me ;)
There's a slide underneath the Whomping Willow.
That's a really great idea!
(Plus it was the only fleshie head I had multiples of to hand at the time). :\
Regretting a bit that I didn't get all the sets in this theme, but the 12 I did get already hardly fit on this table, so maybe it's for the best?
Hope Lego continue with these large Architecture sets as they're great display pieces.
The results speak for themselves...
Like other polybags, the building experience is simple rather than good or bad.
Like many podracer modles, it's somewhat flimsy having to attach the engines and cab while not looking more solid than the movie craft. Yet the finished product was sitll fairly swooshable.
The main design appealed to me, as LEGO food themed sets often do.
The parts of each minifigure were in different bags, and needing to open them all somewhat defeated the point of bags making it easy to build in stages.
I've debated putting this on 16W vs 32W but given the size of the accessories and then the ability to have a driveway for the Thricycle, I think 32W feels right
Also, did you do anything to preserve it opening in half? Or did you just stick it on the baseplate & call it good? Curious as I look to add these to my city with modulars, because the floors don’t come apart with half opening buildings so you have to either mod them more extensively, or I’m thinking if I pin them down on tiles, the buildings could still then open up in half. Of course you’d have to leave enough space to do it in the overall city.
