The wow factor is huge! I thoroughly enjoyed building this set, its a good test of patience and organisation as you build one structure after another. There are a few problems though, one motor to power the entire system is only just enough if it ran smoothly, and even though I made sure the gears w...  see moreof techmech88's review

    When I go to actually use it it goes very slow and I hoped that with a xl motor it would go a little faster but other wises its a great set and its worth the money. I've been working with legos since I was 6 and this set was one of the biggest sets I've ever built.  see moreof Mrtorture36's review

      TLDR? To summarize, this is the most fun and challenging technic build I have ever done. The scale of the set is just amazing. Right out of the gate the dump truck is a fun build by itself. The working steering and latching dump mechanism make it a great addition to the set. Then you start in on t...  see moreof jdinnis's review

        After spending hours on the internet to find which set should I buy I found 42055 BWE. At first I wasn't impressed with it as there is a small amount of Power Functions here. BUT... don't be decevied, the mechanism you build is very sophisticated and it gives you so much fun! It was my first set in ...  see moreof Telehubis's review

          Awesome LEGO set for a nine year old! My son loved making this set. It was challenging enough, but still fun to make. He was overjoyed to have received it for Christmas.  see moreof Hellokittychandaisuki's review

            It is a great Lego set, but some parts in the bucket wheel system broke the whole system, and I had to remover them. I'm also very upset about the instructions, as some steps were printed wrong. Like step says (Example I made up), place a 1x2 here, and in the picture you see a 2x6, but the next step...  see moreof YacobJacob's review

                I decided to revisit my favourite childhood toy as an adult and decided on this as it represented the biggest challenge (as the biggest ever lego technic product). I was not disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed the build which took me roughly 20 hours spread over a few days with the instructions as ea...  see moreof Minty's review
