Novelty doesn't make up for design issuesThis is a truly faithful scale up of the actual lego minifig mug, which is both the best and worst thing about the design. The deep ridge around the base of the mug could have been shallower to increase the mug's capacity, which is not huge, although not too bad for a morning cup of coffee. The handle is actually okay to hold and comfortable enough, but its hollow design traps a lot of water in the dishwasher as does that ridge at the base (the mug is a pain to clean). Finally, while it's not flimsy, I felt the mug wasn't quite as strong as it could have been.
Once you get past the initial fun and novelty of using it, I'm afraid to say that the mug isn't anything special. It could probably have been a lot better if LEGO had been willing to tweak the design slightly from an exact scale reproduction, or if they'd scaled it up a bit more. That said, for a serious LEGO fan that initial fun and novelty is probably enough to justify the purchase.

Not bad, but quite small... Adult version needed!Good design, looks just like the real thing (but bigger - obviously) unfortunately a little small for an adult to use properly... ideal for kids tho.
Also ideal for stationary... I've used mine as a pen/pencil pot on my desk (see image).
I would love a "Grown Up" version in the same design. I would definitely buy an insulated one designed for hot drinks - as long as it was also bigger to accommodate my coffee requirements! Would need two though... one for work and one for home.

Great mug highly recommended!This mug is awesome and it looks exactly like the regular minifigure mugs but human sized! This mug is perfect in every way i couldn't recommend it more plus it would make the perfect gift for anyone! It's like being a Lego minifigure having a cup of coffee or pop or water or whatever it's just so awesome and it is so sturdy! Also when i got it the tag inside the mug says it's microwave safe!!!! I hope that Lego makes upscaled dishes and clear upscaled mugs wouldn't that be great?!

Adorable!This mug matches the proportions of its smaller counterpart really well! The cup is too small for an adult serving but would be suitable for children; I will use mine as a display piece. I appreciate the “LEGO” logo on the bottom of the inside of the mug.
Fans of the City theme will especially enjoy this mug (red mugs are a common feature of City sets).
