Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow I had been looking forward to this set coming out since it was initially announced, and I must say, it doesn't disappoint. It is absolutely beautiful in design and the level of detail is fantastic. Compared to the other landmark sets that have come out, this one is by far my favorite since the Statue of Liberty set, mainly because it did not feel like I was doing the same thing over and over again like with Tower Bridge. Something is always a little bit different with each section, so I didn't find myself getting bored and having to push myself to finish up. It did require a close eye on detail, though, as it was easy to overlook some pieces, and on some pages of the instruction booklets the beige and grey pieces looked the same and I put the wrong one down. The brick separator tool that comes with it will become your best friend. The set is much bigger than I anticipated and it looks great with all of my other sets. Overall, I would highly suggest it, despite the steep price. It took me about three days to build and I loved every second of it. It definitely helped that they numbered the bags of bricks with the instruction booklet they would be used in, as there are four booklets with this set. If you're a relatively advanced set builder, you will love this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Icon in lego My son got this when he was 8 years old and he liked it too much. It has a special place in our living room. This is not the first advanced logo he has built. He has the TGV, the big space shuttle and many different Lego technics. He loves legs too much, I have no clue on how much we has used to buy him Lego. But it doesn't matter as long has he is having fun with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Syndey Operare House - tremendous fun for AFOLs The Syndey Opera House set is amazing and provides great fun for AFOLs! My wife loves architecture and I have to admit that this set has blown me away as well. With 4 building instruction booklets which can be assembled in parallel, we decided that each of us builds the parts of 2 booklets in parallel. Building in parallel it took us approximately 3 hours to assemble the whole set. If built by a single person, its probably around 6-7 hours build time. The instructions are easy to follow. There are also a number of neat new building techniques included in this set, particularly in the foundation of the smaller white standalone shells at the back of the building. In terms of new LEGO pieces we have not seen elsewhere, there were also a couple new ones in this set. For example black technic pieces with a joint ball on a brick arm with 1 axle and one regular hole. This piece was used to anchor technic bricks with holes onto which the white shells got attached in bricks with ball sockets. Obviously, the construction of the white shells for the roof due their unusual form and angles provided the richest new building experience. Once the individual parts (2 for the foundation, the major shells for the roof, etc.) were built, putting them together was seamless. And the result breathtaking! Its amazing with how much precision the LEGO designers captured the geometry of the real Syndey Opera House in this set. We have it now on display in our living room.
