Not strong enough and non symmetric enough to keep the Saturn stable..The bricks don't match perfectly as it is always the norm with Lego. lots of collapses than retry again and again due to its instability.
This is not the type of building i expected from Lego.
I had a stroke at a very young age so unlike most I build one handed which as you can imagine can be hard at times. Lego has played a huge part in getting my coordination back and regenerating brain cells over the years.
It can be a struggle in places but the Saturn is a very robust structure. Bag 7 is by far my favourite as it isboth complex and simplistic at the same time. Trust me, when you get to it you will know what i mean.
This set brought me together with my 7-year-old daughter when times get tough. I must admit I am not yet complete as i still have 1 bag to go but there is a reason for this. This is the first big set I have done with Felicity. She helped with bag 1 and 12 ( I skipped to the end so she could get involved in little bits) and just like when my grandad sat with my mum in 1969, I am going to complete this with my little lady by my side and create my own special memory.
My grandson and I have built many challenging sets and found this one to be especially hard!
Several pieces in the mid section did not seem to fit, and we disassembled and reassembled the bottom and middle section three times and the pieces in the one small area still does not fit right!
Upon completion the three sections do not want to stay together and most definite can not be picked up one handed as one builder on here said he could do!
The stands were flimsy to say the least and my grandson was not only disappointed with the build but was thourly disappointed in the min figs
I cannot express easily all the good points, so lets list them would we?
- very large set with maybe one of the best price value (with the Hogwarts Castle). It really towers all the set I have today and even the Hogwarts Castle may blush next to it although it has three times the amount of pieces.
- very complex and genuine build that you don't want to mess up with as it can be difficult to put some pieces together once you have a big chunk of reactor in your hand. The "roundness" of the set is well thought and, without any stickers, the printed pieces really stand out. The building looks delicate at first, but once build, it is rather solid build.
- very modulable as the "real one" with the 5 different stages of flight, docking, landing, which makes it also easy to transport, which I did because I wanted to display it at work.
- easily displayable on the supports
- strong playability but better to play it as a responsible adult or child ;-)
- a collector lego that is not to joke with as it is very well designed and, overall, beautiful.
- nice building instruction with a little history behind this set.
A few bad points, however:
- some part of the build are really difficult to maintain in place until you solidify everything later on... and sometimes instructions can be confusing (but when you are excited to build, how can you do?)
- the module is a bit fragile to play with
This fully detailed LEGO model is truly a masterpiece that deserves to be in every household, classroom, or office where young minds aspire. Perhaps the most economical investment in learning.
