- November 13th, 2019Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Overall it's a very impressive vehicleKezzie |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfAs most other reviewers has said this model is very very good. Great suspension, winch, rear door mechanism and robustness of the overall build. The build is challenging with regards to the running gear but with some patience and following the instructions closely I didn't experience any of the gearbox issues other seem to have suffered from. I do, however, have a major gripe with the vast numbers of stickers and their poor quality, both printing accuracy and die cutting which caused some of the stickers to delaminate or tear. I don't usually apply stickers but, on this occasion, thought they would add to the model's detail but now wish I hadn't.17 November 2019Emily, Customer ServiceWe're sorry to hear that you had some trouble. If there was a problem with the stickers in your set, we'd be happy to help.

- May 3rd, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Loved thisAFCBLou |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis was my first time building a Technic set but I loved it. Bought and built during lockdown so I rationed my time spent on it to makes sure I didn’t complete too quickly. Love the detail. During the build the engine pistons moved fine but on completion there was no movement. After playing with the gears a bit I eventually got them moving. Love the winch, suspension, steering and the read door opening with the spare tyre. Can’t wait for my next set to arrive!Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Building Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Land Rover Defender
- January 16th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Thank you LegoI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI’m a Lego parent that has witnessed greater than 50 sets coming into our household since my last set, the old Millennium Falcon maybe ten plus years ago. I was becoming a little jealous of how much fun my kids were having so wanted a piece of the action. I was drawn to the Technic (never owned or built before) and in particular the Land Rover Defender primarily to experience something challenging (I suppose I’m a novice to intermediate builder) but also loved the overall design. The reviews and apparent value considering the piece count sealed the deal. I was super excited when it arrived and really wanted to take my time and enjoy the build experience. I really hit the jackpot with this set. The packaging and presentation was sublime. Instruction book and the number of bags (bags within bags) were a little over-whelming but again this was the challenge I wanted. It took me 7 days spread out with an hour on weekdays after work in the evenings and 4/5 hours on each of the weekend days. I honestly enjoyed every minute of the build and even caught myself smiling on numerous occasions where I sat back and reflected on what a great decision it was to invest in this set. Seeing every element come together was excellent. When it was completed I was like my kids calling every family member in to look at my creation to show off all the features, gears and engine. Everything was smooth and working well with one exception; the pistons of the engine were not working. I know some other reviewers were frustrated after such investment of time but I was actually delighted as it gave me a new project to root cause the error. After twisting and turning the vehicle upside and down trying all the different cogs, reviewing videos and learning a lot more about the build, I was systematically able to root cause the issue all the way back to step 11 (out of 800+ steps), wow, right at the start of the build – which makes perfect sense… I was so rusty and eye sight not what it used to be! Perhaps lucky (although I didn’t mind ‘starting over’) I was able to remove ca. 20 pieces and get to the fault and rectify. Oh the joy when I saw those pistons go up and down and all my efforts being paid off. Pros: + Challenging + Time to Build + Design & Appearance + Engine & Gears + Features Cons: None. Thank you Lego, I can’t emphasise how much I enjoyed this and really well done to all involved in this design.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty5.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 7 daysBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Land Rover Defender
- January 4th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Better design than the real oneOtaman |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SonI bought it for my 9 year old son as a x-mas gift. The final result gave him a great sense of accomplishment. The rugged design of the car is way better than the real one which is too round. The real one should have come out this way. He had a lot of fun for 7 hours straight without meals. I see a lot of complaints about the noise from the gears after finishing. But I found no mistakes in the set at all. It works just fine even if my son finished all by himself. That must be caused by the two universal joints which are not connected firmly. I confirmed it for my son. If those are loosely connected, the noise will be inevitable. So just be careful when you assemble two universal joint parts inside. Only one problem my son found on this was the disassembly which would be very painful.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 7 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Land Rover Defender
