- 4 days agorating.prefix5rating.postfixVery fun and enjoyable build!carternc | 14-18I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThe 10256 Lego Taj Mahal is an incredible build. There is a lot of repetition, but it is needed. I love the details in the center of the set including the many archways. As shown in my pictures, this set is built in many sections and therefore is very maneuverable. This is a plus for me because I built movable shelves and like to change it up once in a while.Play Experiencerating.prefix2rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix4rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix5rating.postfixBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
- 5 days agorating.prefix5rating.postfix10256 Taj MahalMurdok | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI was one of the lucky few who got this set on release day. The build is wonderful. It is a show piece l, so not much playability, however the pure presence of this model in a room is defenently a conversation starter. I was unlucky enough to have had step 14 poly bags missing which in all of my years of building I've never even as much as had a piece missing, so how a whole step got forgotten is beyond me but I've emailed lego and I'm sure they will fix it. There is a lot of repetitive building but the finished product is a show stopper. Many hours of enjoyment come packed up in this set. Lots of cool techniques, older techniques but fun none the less. I understand redoing a legendary set, but I wish they would have revamped it. Changed some things with all of the new techniques used this day and time, and I wish they used gold elements instead of the yellow used. Over all I'm happy with this set and will look great once I get the missing pieces and finish it. Thank you lego and please keep the large sets like this coming. It's time for some new larger single building architecture sets lol.Play Experiencerating.prefix3rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix4rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix5rating.postfixBuild Time: 5 daysBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55

- 5 days agorating.prefix5rating.postfixOne of the best sets ever!!Poekielego | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI always wanted this set, and to my surprise Lego re-issued it! I stayed up on november 27th to get it, and bought it as an early Christmas present. I build this set during the Christmas holidays. There is a fair amount of repetition in building this set, which is logical, because the Taj Mahal is a symmetrical building. So the repetition didn't bother me so much. It was also helpfull: you don't need so much space, because you can build the different parts first, and put them together later. And now it is finished, and it looks great. It is a big set, just like the large version of Sydney Opera house from a few years ago (but that one was more challenging). I hope Lego will re-issue more great sets from the past.Play Experiencerating.prefix3rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix3rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix4rating.postfixBuild Time: 13 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
