Amazing

The Taj Mahal Lego set is a sight to behold. Fully built, it is nearly 2x2 feet and a feet and half tall. It is not an easy build, especially for younger builders, as there are many small pieces and some uncommon techniques. But it is really cool and satisfying when it is done. As other reviewers have mentioned, it has very little playability (though not zero) and serves more as a display model than a play set. Overall, really great value for a builder's set (nearly 6,000 pieces for less than $400, compare to the Death Star set that has 4,000 pieces for $500).

Build: This set's build is not for the faint of heart, even with the less advanced building techniques compared to today's sets. It has pieces that are small and the same color (for the most part), leading to confusion. On top of that, expect a large amount of repetition in the build. But if you are up for the challenge, building this behemoth is very rewarding to see become larger and larger. Playability/ Features: There is 0 playability with this set, so this would not make a great gift for younger builders. Instead of aiding in playability, the features of the set are instead dedicated to looks and utility. The designer did a fantastic job recreating the look of the Taj Mahal in spite of the limited part palette, making for a fantastic and eye-catching display piece. Along with great looks, the feature that allows for the separation of the set allows for easy and painless transport and storage. Differences Made: The set is virtually identical to the 2008 release in the parts department aside from the change in color of a few technic elements and the inclusion of a part separator. The main change comes in the build experience through the inclusion of numbered bags, making the build miles less frustrating to build than the original. Overall: If you have the patience and like the look of it, this set may be for you. If not, it would be best to stay far away from this set.

A great build for a breathtaking object that is worth a lot of repetitions (due to the symmetrical architecture of this landmark). Need some room for display. Quarantine time Covid19 in the UK, I could not stop! As a novice Lego builder (my first Lego Creator), I loved the build and the finished product looks amazing. The developing teams are genius! I look forward to doing more Lego landmarks!

Nice set

This is a very repetitive set; each part is built around four times and then everything fits together. Once it's together it looks great though! I'd suggest lighting it, it makes it pop! It also it easy to transport as it comes apart into three pieces.

Awesome until moving it

I loved building this kit. Many parts of it are very challenging to assemble. If I were to criticize anything, it would be that after I completed the build, I was moving the bottom portion and it disconnected at the seams and I dropped it. I essentially got to build the bottom part twice. All in all though, it is a beautiful piece and I am excited to display it for many years to come.

A very satisfying build. Looks spectacular when complete. Would be great if there was lighting to add to the interior.
