I'm very happy with this unit. The shipping box is very heavy so it is helpful to have two people to get it into the house. I assembled it myself ,I'm 48, in about 2 hrs. I had to reread some of the steps over a few times until I understood them but over all the instructions are good and easy to follow. Two of the four holes for the trim piece weren't drilled. Not having a drill I used Elmer's wood glue. It is holding fast and I don't see any future problem. It looks very nice and is perfect for our 42in flat screen tv and surround sound. I think it could hold a slightly larger screen. There is a decent amount of storage with room in back for less used videos/cd's or whatever. It slides easily on carpeting, not that I'd do it often. Shipping was included and I got the 5 percent discount for using my RED card so I think it was a good value.
Our entertainment center arrived yesterday! It took a couple hours to assemble, as I did take my time. The color is great! It looks very stylish and fits our needs perfectly. If you're looking for a great focal point in the room, this is it!
The features in this set are totally above my expectations!
Firstly, I must say that the Police truck was my favorite part of this set-- rare colors (for a truck), high ground clearance and a lot of customizeability! Its tough, compact design makes it easy to play with, and you never have to worry about bricks falling off. It also features an opening hatch with a fairly large cargo compartment (which is quite simple to make even bigger).
The helicopter is tiny compared to most, making it easy to play with (and feature in videos). It has a lot of detail including a tail rotor and positional lights.
The Police station itself is designed to be played with, featuring an open back (making video recording a cinch!) and a lookout bridge.
The office has a detailed computer monitor and keyboard, a swiveling chair at the desk, and a cool coffee machine inside, with an access ladder in the back to get on the aforementioned bridge. On this bridge sit a radar system and a satellite dish, giving it a special 'forest' feel. Underneath the bridge there is also a cool opening gate.
The jail cell has a bunk, removable mailbox (for breaking out thieves!), and an open back for playability.
The roomy rock opens so you can stash cash (or maybe find evidence of a robbery). The tree by the rock is also very cool in structure, because you can place almost any LEGO object in it!
The Minifigures have awesome outfits: special Police uniforms and torn jail shirts!
The bear, crowbar, pickaxe and Police radio are very nice additions to my accessory collection!
No matter if you record videos, play alone, or play with friends, you would not regret purchasing this set. And even if you don't like the Police station, it comes with all the essentials for redesigning into any building you would need anyway!
