    Amazing set!
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Wow! What a treat to build! The sail design is really fun and very creative. You get some very pretty “gold” pieces and overall it is a great set, especially as a free gift. Looks fantastic on display!

    Awesome design but terrible quality control
    This set is one of the best promos LEGO has ever released. The build was fun and easy to follow and the design is very nice. The glaring issue of this set is the quality control of the white mast pieces in the set. I think I can speak for the LEGO community when I say that LEGO quality control is plummeting. Most likely to cut costs, many pieces are not being printed, molded, and colored properly. On the sail, many large pieces are a light yellow instead of white. I know this isn't an isolated issue, because I have noticed this same problem on other sets like the NASA Space Shuttle Discovery. Also, many pieces are molded inaccurately. It is so bad that I can feel the difference of thickness between bricks. Even worse than this, some pieces are molded so badly that THERE ARE VISABLE GAPS between them and other pieces. I can actually see between where many pieces meet!! This makes the set look downright UGLY!!! Get your act together, or you will lose a customer who has spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on your products. You say that "only the best is good enough"...but LEGO...is this really the best?

    Beautiful
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    I received this as a gift with purchase, but still throughly enjoyed the build process. It was smaller than the usual builds I do but it was still a pleasure to complete. I love how detailed all the lego builds are absolutely brilliant.

    Beautiful ship, Awesome Promo
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    This has to be one of my favorite promotional sets to date. The attention to detail and building techniques are great. The independently moving sails are a really neat touch! My only complaint is how flimsy the hull and base are, especially early on the build. There are some large areas in the hull that are void of any bricks. This makes those sections feel cheap and a bit flimsy while building. Thankfully this didn’t affect the finished product but it did cause some frustration.
