Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lego Taj Mahal is a Nice Display Piece! I hope Lego comes up with more challenging sets as the Taj Mahal. When finished the Lego Taj Mahal makes a nice display piece, but fair warning it's fairly huge. I like that the bags are numbered, for I have a small nook in the family room where I build my lego sets. I understand that people have a whole room dedicated for Lego, but this works out nice for people who don't. I have built 4 Lego sets so far and yet to have a missing piece which impresses me very much. About 1/4th way through the build process I changed my building technique a little and notice it was much easier to have every part separated and the very small pieces put into bins. It takes about 20-30 minutes to separate the pieces, but speeds up the actual build time immensely. I'm 53 years old, so playability is a non-factor for me, but I would say the Taj Mahal has no playability whatsoever. It's a very nice display piece and now I just have to find a place in a room where I can put it. I'm glad that Lego re-released this set and to all the so-called "collectors" stop calling yourself collectors. A collector is one who treasures their collections that rarely parts with anything unless it becomes really really valuable. No your just trying to make a fast buck at someone else's gullibility. I'm not a collector, for I build these Lego sets, for me that's part of the fun and it's a challenge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set I missed buying this when it first came out and remember reading about Sting and his son building it when he was on tour. I was sure I'd never get a chance to buy it and then LEGO reissued this beautiful set. I was in line when my local LEGO store opened on November 3 and was very happy to carry it out to my car. It's designed in modules: six at the base, eight for the mausoleum, and then the dome. That makes for a sensible build and it can be disassembled if necessary. There is a bit of tedium, since the architecture of the Taj is all about symmetry. The modules can get repetative, but the plus side is you learn a few tricks as you progress. The engineering of the roof and interior of the dome is brilliant and structurally sound. My 10-year-old grandson helped me at several points and it wasn't beyond his abilities. The only thing I didn't particularly like when I was done was the "knobbiness" of the dome and the domes of the four chhatris. So I went to Bricks and Pieces and ordered 1x1 and 1x2 tiles and 1x1x2/3 roof tiles to go over all the knobs. I think it cleans up the final product. Anyway, fun build and a very impressive piece that draws the admiration and comment of everyone who sees it, especially those who have been to Agra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great build plus my additional extra Good solid challenging build, added lights to it using copper wire lights that just squeeze between the bricks, found the towers amusingly wobbly, the way it's built is clever in a modular style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best sets ever!! I 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.
