This is by far the best lego marvel superhero set and in my opinion, one of the best lego superhero sets that is available right now. Almost every aspect of this set is above average.
It is really worth the price and more. There are alot of big pieces like the windshields, big gray curved slopes and the huge black bottom pieces in this set and yet it's still is less than $.10 per piece which is awesome. Also, you get not only get the quinjet, but loki's flyer too, which is nice because in some sets in this price range you only the "Main vehicle, plane, building,etc. ", and not something on the side to go with it.
Great minifigs you get all the avengers except for two all with great movie accurate detail and printing ( this the only set that you can get black widow) and Loki and his foot soldier, which complete this scene perfectly in the movie where loki's army is attacking and the avengers are chasing him in the quinjet.
Very well designed, it is a very sleek jet and it really looks like the quinjet in the movie. They captured the signature shield design perfectly too which the collectors will really like.
The inside is a little bit cramped and could use some more space to put minifigures but that doesn't matter to me cause I only collect and display the sets. Other than I've got nothing
So to sum it up, this is a great set with great value, awesome minifigs, a well designed quinjet w/movie accurate detail, and it is a necessary addition to any lego fan who likes planes and aircrafts and especially any marvel superhero collector's/fan's collection.
When I first saw this set I didn't want it but after awhile of seeing it in stores I figured okay and I really liked building it alot First is Loki's chariot I like because you can fit Loki on the back to sit or stand on the back while the Alien Foot Soilder flies around the Quinjet itself I really like alot but I have to say the only challenging part of the whole build in this set was putting the cockpit section connectied I really like how you can also put alot of figures inside the plane or make the back a prison area for Loki I also like the Shield drone that flies out from underneath the plane which I thought was a good idea also I like the fact that you can move the wings someway to make give the effect that the plane is flying the figures in this set are all just great and you get Thor and Loki which I think are okay Black Widow I like but with her long hair see looks like the version that was in Iron Man 2 I really like Iron Man in his Mark 7 armor. This is really an awesome set for anyone who likes Lego Marvel Super Hero's and if this plane were real in real life it would make a great military plane so if anyone is looking for a great set I would get this trust me you won't be disappointed at all.
it is my favorite set out of the 120 sets i have built. i only really don't like the fact that the wing tips move. other than that you get half of the avengers, their main enemy (in the movie), and a Chitauri warrior and deluxe speeder. i say deluxe in the fact that this speeder has the back compartment as opposed to the speeder in the Captain America set
-amazing detail and overall look of the quinjet. reminds me completely of the movie
-Mark 7 iron man
-amazing front cockpit
-extra space in jet
-seats in jet
-wing tips move but can be fixed with simple mod
-fair amount of stickers
My 5yo daughter and I were scanning through the Lego Catalog to see what Lego set we could buy, when she spotted Emma's Horse Trailer.
When we bought the set, I was expecting that I would have to build the set for my child but the instructions were laid out exceptionally well. This set is recommended for 6+ but my 5yo had no trouble putting it together with just a little assistance from her dad.
It's a great set as once it's built, your child is guaranteed to have hours of fun. I highly recommend it to any parent who wants their child to learn to put a lego set together themselves.
I LOVE this set! it has tons of detail in the house, yard and mini-figures. It was an average build and took me an hour to an hour and a half to build. The play experience is wonderful and i could seriously play with this set for hours. Olivia's parents (Peter and Anna) were a great add on to the set and just makes this set better! I have many Lego and Lego friends sets and this one is probably my favorite. It is a great addition to your Lego town and just overall an amazing set and i would definetley recommend it to everyone! :)
I bought this set for myself, and I really enjoy it. It was a pretty easy build. I, personally, didn't like how the kitchen was set up, and that the front door led into the kitchen. But for me that was the beginning of the fun! I rearranged the kitchen, adding more counter space, a cupboard, and a coffee machine. I also moved the kitchen stuff into the family room, and the family room stuff in to the kitchen, and I'm much happier with the setup. Using windows for walls, I made the parents a bedroom, with Olivia's bed. I put the bed from Mia's Bedroom set in Olivia's room, and it matched the color scheme perfectly. I also reconstructed Olivia's room to put her deck outside the front of her room. I also added a deck for the parents, fixing the roofing problems by removing Olivia's deck. I didn't touch the bathroom, except to add four 2 by one green tiles, as towels. I also removed one of the drawers from this room, adding it to Olivia's room. I also put a few plates under the roof, instantly adding storage!
I put the house and the yard on a green 30/30 plate to stabilize, also adding more yard space. While not all of her yard fits, it works better for play. In the yard I added a patio, doghouse, and Emma's Splash Pool. I guess what I'm saying is that I really like this set, because it adds a lot of possibility for personal improvement.
I would really like to see room sets, sets with just a room that you can add to the house. Specifically a parent's room, another girl's bedroom ( Wouldn't it be fun to use random Lego friend parts and give Olivia a sister?), and blank rooms, without furniture. If Lego were to come out with blank rooms, I would buy two, adding them to my house, placing Emma's Studio in. Also maybe another, to put Emma's Karate class in. It would be fun! And you wouldn't have to worry about too many rooms, because there rooms change in and out so easily, you can just put away the one's you aren't playing with. I would also enjoying see more outfits for the Mom and Dad. But it's not a huge deal.
I would like to clarify that I did not name all of the things I added.
When I was little I had the Ultimate Lightsaber Duel (The one where if you pressed their heads, their lightsabers lit up) and the Jedi Starfighter & Vulture Droid and I loved them so much. And while this set doesn't have illuminating lightsabers it has a great set of minifigs, Anakin in his Sith Apprentice state, Obi-Wan Jedi Master, The first non-clone wars Nute Gunray, a security Battle Droid and R2-D2. I have to say these are just great. This Anakin has to be one of my favorite so far. The brand new Obi-Wan is just great. The security battle droid and R2 are regular but they had to be included. Lastly Nute Gunray is Brand-new and I really like how detailed he is. Now with the set, it's the first Jedi Interceptor in a while and I like this one as it is Anakin's last Jedi ship. R2-D2 fits in the wing nicely, and the cannons and weapons are quite nice. Overall it’s great, except for the stickers. Now to the rest. The platform and mining droid have clear bricks below them to give them a "floating" effect, and they are accurate compared to the movie.
Pros & Cons
R2 fits in ship
Brand new minifigures
Anakin's Mining Droid is higher the Obi-Wan's platform
Could've had more (honestly I wouldn't mind pay an extra $10 for a land piece and defeated Anakin)
Overall this is a great set and it's hard to find so I recommend that you buy it right away!
this set is awesome minfigures are great so is the ship and the two other things mini figures: battle droid only good if you want to build up an army nute gunrey good for playing with r2-d2 good if you dont have one anakin just awesome really cool new design and obi-wan he is by far my favourite so mini figures 5/5 and the ship 4/5 the wings always fall off it is so annoying other than that really good the other things 5/5 they never break and good for putting minifigures on and make them fight with each other the
cons anakin's black hand always tips to the left it's probebly just mine though and the ships wings
overall rating 5/5
This set is probably my third favorite LEGO Star Wars set that I have. BARC Speeder with Sidecar being second and X-Wing Fighter being first. (ALL MOST CURRENT VERSIONS). I would recommend this to any LEGO Fan or Star Wars Fan!
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!
From the outset you can tell that this is going to be a high-value set. Same price as the Fire Brigade or Grand Emporium, yet you get 2 separate structures. Each has it's own awesome "wow" factor. The detail level continues to impress with such considerations as the lofted bedroom w/ skylight, fireplace and kitchen area. The pet shop is so much fun. Dog pen under the stairs? I may use that at home. A wonderful addition to any collector's landscape. My streets will continue to grow for years to come.
I am a parent of two Lego fans. Recently, I bought them the Lego Pet Shop. My children were really happy when we brought this home . My oldest son said that it was hard to build the trap door on the brown apartment. My youngest son said the blue pet shop was a bit confusing at first, but later it became easy. So I would highly recommend the Lego Pet Shop because of its features. Also, I recommend this set to those who like challenges in building lego sets. If you enjoyed building the Green Grocer, the Cafe Corner, and the Fire Brigade, etc ., this set would be perfect for you!
This set really approaches perfection. Had so much fun building, love the look, and the many micro builds are very satisfying. The colours are great and the detail keeps bringing me back to look. Would love to see the next modular build off of the two building concept, maybe with a bank or something.
The reason i like this set is because its the only Lego set in 2012-2013
which includes a joker minion.I rate it: jokers helicopter 10/10 the Batwing
8 1/2 /10/ characters 10/10 overall 9 1/2 /10.
This is a wonderful set i love the mini figures and i love the vehicles this is a very well designed set much like many other sets but i would recommend this set to DC fans and collectors all over.
This was a very nice set. It had a lot of playability to it. Now for the Pros and Cons, if you may.
Sleek design on Batwing
Nice weapons on BOTH Vehicles
Helicopter could've been bigger
Compare the size of the old Batwing to the new
Now I am done, now go buy the set!
The new clones are AWESOME!!!!!! The new AT-RT is way better then the old one!!!!! You get one of the commando driod!!!!! I would recomend this set for anyone who is a star wars fan and likes the old republic.
I got this set for Christmas, and I am very pleased with it. I have always made Lego seaside resorts with spas and pools, and I always wanted Lego to get a set out that had something similar. I was very excited when this came out, and that it was my favorite theme: Lego Friends! The minifigs that come with this set are really great, with new printed tops and legs, and the little rare pieces are a great touch, like the ice cream, sausage, slush puppies and palm leaves. The hidden waterfall is really nice with its large glass window, as is the Jacuzzi with little bubbles and nice curved wall elements. The large pool is nice and spacious, with the basketball net and curving steps. Going upstairs: the diving board, with it's mini-ladder, is a great addition, I love the spring especially. The slide is one of the best pieces, and the Friends go down it really nicely.
The Snack bar is really great, with its printed signs and little details. I play that Olivia's mum from Olivia's house works there.
The shower and changing room are really nice, the soap is a great touch, and the green folding doors are nice and smooth.
Altogether, this is a really nice set with lots of detail and good playing value, I have spent hours having great fun with it. :)
I have recently become a Lego fan and i saw this product built and on display at my local toy store its the Lego HEARTLAKE POOL SET and i simply fell in Love with it.Any age can secretly play with LEGO and being disabled and am often poorly.I can really have great fun building this step by step and it was something i could go back to over a period of time when i felt up to building it.Its such a fun set with a great themed design love the extra details such as the speakers,moving palm leaves,basketball net and ball,the sauna small pool as well as big pool,love the slide and ladder and spring board,the sun loungers and cafe make great extra,s tables,shower and double toilet room with opening doors,Flowers,icecream cones and cool drinks
I will definatly reccomend this for lots of great fun please keep these sets coming Lego and can we maybe have fairground rides of sevral types theme park sets for girls no matter what age they are
(I'm going to make another shorter review) I enjoyed the house, I bought it with the Apple Tree House and I did think it was small for the $50 which costs more than the Apple Tree House.
~ Another house
~ Great addition to LEGO collections or LEGO beaches
~ Unique colors with cool pieces
~ Expensive for small set
~ Small, like I said multiple times above
This set I got for my birthday as a present and let me say it is amazing! I love the detail of the set and let me say that the harder build is worth the trouble! There is lots of awesome features such as opening windows, doors, a small grill, etc. This set is just amazing and worth every cent!
Lots of detail
The bed is a little small and squishes the Minifigure
I love to see Lego star wars jabba sets be released like this.
Luke (jedi knight)
The skiff itself
Go out and buy you one before they go discontinued, its worth it all the way!
Fantastic set. Kithaba is a nice figure. LEGO added some printing to Boba Fett's legs, but otherwise he is just his usual awesome self. Lando is a nice figure with a fantastic helmet design. The only problem I see with the minifigures is that Han Solo is not included. Of course, if he were, then the fight would be uneven, but LEGO could have included a Gamorrean Guard as well. The Sarlacc can actually fit a minifigure in its tongue! The skiff itself has a nice storage area for blasters and just looks pretty cool. I'd say the highlight of this set is the Sarlacc, and I recommend you buy it to compliment Jabba's Sail Barge.
With the large mech, folding temple, rare minifigures, trapdoor, all four elemental blades, two stone soldiers, this set is worth the $70. This temple of greatness combines all these features into one awesome set! Like Kai's Fire Mech, the sword is NOT clipped, but cannot be held as easily. However, the temple could have been bigger, almost making me rate this four concerning the "value for money." Do not worry about the temple compared with the TV show, for Ninjago takes root in Lego, not Cartoon Network! Highly recommended for "The Final Battle!"
This set closed the theme of Ninjago! :'( let us all have a minute of silence......... This departing gift really pleased me. The mech and figures really delighted me. The temple is great for the reasonable price. The Golden Ninja was the star of the set, it is the best figure in my Ninjago collection. Goodbye Ninjago and may your legacy live forever! -Lloyd2la
The temple of light is a really nice set. It comes with 5 mini figures Lloyd (golden ninja), Lord Garmadon, Sensei Wu, scout and warrior. Lloyd is really cool he has a lot of detail. Lord Garmadon looks really evil, I like his 4 arms. Sensei Wu looks good but not too much detail. I like the scout because of his arrows. The warrior is awesome I love his printing. Now onto the set I like the Golden mech because of its size. Sadly the sword falls out a lot but its okay. I think it has good detail, I love the printed piece at the top of the mech. The temple of light looks cool. Although it does not have too much functions its still a great set. The 2 functions are it can open and close and my favorite function is the trap door. The trap door has one problem when you put a minifigure on it and pull the lever it usually gets stuck. To rap it up the temple of light is an awesome set totally worth the money.

The minifigures in this set are all awesome and well detailed. Luke's new hair piece is the best on any Luke Skywalker minifigure, in the past and Leia's new hair is also very cool. Han, Obi-Wan/Ben Kenobi and Chewbacca are all quite basic and have no new pieces, but are still great minifigures. Also you get Darth Vader with this set, which is strange, but it’s still nice to get him included in the set. Maybe I'd have rather of had R2-D2 or C3PO, than Darth Vader, but it's still a nice touch though.
This set is fantastic- the attention to detail is great. I love how they even included the weird hologram game that Chewbacca and C3PO play in episode 4. The interior has lots of good accessories without overcrowding it. For example it includes 2 beds and Lukes training area. One problem, however, is that it is quite difficult to fit 2 minifigures in the cockpit but luckily, its not impossible.
This set was quite a challenging build; even my dad had trouble building it. It took my dad and me around 4-5 hours to build, but I like a long challenging build.
Overall… I love this set. I would recommend it to any star wars fan as this set is very iconic and, once again, the attention to detail is simply stunning.
I first saw this in a Lego catalogue and didn't see any interest in this set and ignored it, I am only 17 at the time of reviewing this and had no interest in Volkswagen in any way, after 2 years since its release it really grabbed my attention after seeing reviews and the LEGO designer video. I purchased it ahead of the other 2013 exclusive sets.
This is a must have set for every Volkswagen fan and for people who grew up in the 60's. This is an impressive recreation of the iconic Volkswagen Camper Van from the 1960's, this is an iconic and popular LEGO set as its one of LEGO's best seller.
This set contains four unique pieces: Tr. Yellow Plate 1X1 W/Tooth, Pc used as interior lights in the Camper Van. Curtain Vw "No. 1" is a brand new element used as 6 curtains in the Camper Van. Bright Orange Pop Up Roof is another brand new element used for the Pop-Top. Brick Yellow Frame F. Train Window 1X2X3 only appears in this set in this colour.
This set does not include any minifigures. This set is not intended for play and is only a display set with features like the actual Camper Van.
This set is not really made to play, it does have features like: opening doors (4), Opening engine door which reveals the realistic engine design, opening rear window, opening safari windows, the iconic "V" front with the Volkswagen logo, front and rear licence plates, Gas tank, front and rear lights, Pop-Top, luggage rack, fold down table, seats can be changed into a bed, sink, lava lamp, plant, photo, "Make LEGO Models Not War" t-shirt, drivers area details.
This set contains fifteen unnumbered bags. The two instruction booklets are thick which come in a cardboard sleeve to keep them straight with the stickers.
The build is very enjoyable and not too repetitive starting at the bottom and working your way up, the stickers where the only down side to the build which stressed me out. The build is very study when complete.
Value for Money:
This retails for £79.99 in the UK and contains 1334 pieces. Volkswagen fans will really appreciate this model, however people who are not familiar may not be drawn to this set other than it is a bright vehicle which stands out from other Lego models on my shelve. It delivers a different build experience, compared to your average set as its aimed towards adults.
Volkswagen is iconic and can be recognised all over the world as this will be a fine addition to your collection and will make a great collector’s item.
This set is available at Lego Stores and http://shop.lego.com/ and other selected retailers.
The box is very classic and 60's style, with snapshots of features on the Camper Van.
This will do very well as a long term potential as for adults who are from the Volkswagen Community.
Yes, this It is a great collector’s item and display piece with minor flaws like:
Pop-Top is uneven, gaps in some areas, the stickers were a real pain and could have been printed, grill lines are suppose to be inside the van, engine door sticks out, small kitchen needs to be bigger, no turning axle (Even the wheel doesn't move) It could of have brick built luggage.
Final Analysis/ Conclusion:
Overall this set it is a must have set for every Volkswagen fan. If you’re a Lego collector of cars this will also be a unique and it will stand out from other Lego cars of this scale. This set has four unique pieces. Is it worth the money: for “Volkswagen” fans is a must buy. This set is a best seller so get you hands on it when you can.
I have built many of times large lego models and by far this has been the best model I have built. The detail in making the Volkswagen was outstanding the detail designer but lots of hard work and hours to get this looking exactly the same as a real camper van. The curtains had to be my favourite idea surprised to see that they aren't stickers! For £80 I must say that this is well worth the money and they building is ever so fun! Does take a few hours but it keeps your mind on the roll of what your building and where it's going next! I loved this and wish lego did a few more of these type builds maybe a caravan or a trailer for this camper van model!!
