- 2 days agoAverage rating4out of 5 starsFun addition to LEGO IdeasSmoov | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI started off a bit apprehensive about this build but it quickly got to be more fun. After constructing the ship - which is quite small and delicate - You start in on the bottle, which starts with tons of small-as-possible clear parts. For example, they'll use a bunch of 2x1 pieces to create an 8x1, instead of just including an 8x1 piece. To me, that artificially bumps up the piece count (on a set that already has 284 clear blue pieces to make the "water") and, more importantly, keeps the final product less stable and harder to get perfectly aligned. The set should probably be no more than $50 tops, but in the end it was a fun build that looks great on display so it's hard to complain. Just note that to make any adjustments to the ship or anything like that, you're looking at a bit of an ordeal, getting back into and then rebuilding the bottle.Value for MoneyAverage rating3out of 5 starsBuild Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45
- 9 days agoAverage rating4out of 5 starsInteresting setjjwatters | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI really enjoyed building this set. Building the bottom on the bottle was intriguing. The visual effect is excellent with this set. When I first saw this set I thought it was perfect to go along with the Old Fishing Store Set. I have both in my office. I do agree with other reviews that the ship is small, but I can understand why; the size of the bottle in proportion to the ship. I have one complaint about this set. It is not very sturdy. In my opinion, this set is not intended to be played with, unless you take the ship out of the bottle. Moving the set requires rebuilding the set (personal experience - multiple rebuilds). The neck of the bottle becomes detached very easily.Play ExperienceAverage rating3out of 5 starsLevel of DifficultyAverage rating2out of 5 starsValue for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 starsBuild Time: 1 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45

I really enjoyed this kit; A lot of small pieces but still very enjoyable to build. I am most impressed with the bottle. The design and build of the bottom is pretty cool.Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 starsLevel of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 starsValue for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 starsBuild Time: 2 hrs 30 minsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
- 9 days agoAverage rating5out of 5 starsExcellent Displayysma | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis set is a great as a home display, with these colourful bricks the building is amazing and so much fun. The only cons I find the price in Canadian $is a little bit high, and the designer could have merged two pieces of WALL ELEMENT 1X4X3 Element 4594686 to form a big piece WALL ELEMENT 1X4X6 this would make the ship more visible.Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 starsLevel of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 starsValue for MoneyAverage rating3out of 5 starsBuild Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
