- July 1st, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Great set! So much fun to build! A+++I would recommend this to a friend!This is definitely one of the coolest Ideas sets I’ve ever owned. It is extremely detailed and looks amazing once it is completed. Pressing on the keys does make a lever click, but for some reason, the thing holding the paper does not move when you press a key. Also, the paper was a little hard to put in the slot. As for the building experience, there was almost no repetition and it had some colourful pieces on the inside of the typewriter. Overall, this set is definitely worth the investment.Play Experience4.0Value for Money5.0Was this helpful?55Typewriter
- July 10th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0What an amazing product!!Whyse |I would recommend this to a friend!Honestly, I would start by saying to take any low review with a grain of salt. This build is great and solid, the only weak point is the front under the space bar, don't pull it by that. I also would have liked a full base so you didn't see the table or surface under the keyboard, but those are minor and do not take away from the 5 stars at all. If you miss one of the steps or don't fully follow directions you can mess up something big time causing to have to back track far to fix it, but my advice on that, pay close attention to all steps. The typewriter does "work", the paper feed is tricky, mess with the angle of the mechanism behind the paper to make it work, the letter from the owner of the LEGO group is neat, maybe overkill to have 43 of them, but may have been easier than a different one per country. As you type the paper moves as does a striker and once at the end you can push it back with a satisfying clicking mechanism. Would have been perfect if they found a way to add a bell noise, but not sure how they would have accomplished that. The ribbon looks neat too. This set is going on my bookshelf and it goes great with the statue of liberty and bansai tree that I already have there. Love these sets that are easy to add to non-LEGO decore!Play Experience5.0Value for Money5.0Was this helpful?55Typewriter
- July 23rd, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Awesome Set!I would recommend this to a friend!This is the best set I have built! It is so realistic I have to tell people who complain that it does not do XXX, that it is not a real typewriter. It sounds like a real manual typewriter when you depress the keys, the roller with the paper moves as you type and you can push the roller back for the carriage return. And it looks a lot like a real typewriter. It is an interesting build and you are rewarded early on in the build by creating recognisable functions such as the keyboard, then the carriage return. I bought it for my birthday and invited people around. The only repetitive parts of the build are early on so I had my birthday guests help me build them. There are only two stickers and they are spot on. I remember rubbing my fingers over the equivalent stickers on our family typewriter when I was a teenager. I made one modification. The roller unit was too heavy and catching a bit on the studs on the base plate. I replaced the little grey wheels with the little black wheels from the blue car in the recent give away when you purchased lego. Those wheels have tyres on which lift the roller unit just enough to run smoothly. I have attached photos of my mod. In one of the photos I have the original grey wheel from the set next to the wheel I replaced it with for comparison.Play Experience5.0Value for Money5.0Was this helpful?55Typewriter
- July 20th, 2021Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Great set...butbabbdawg |I would recommend this to a friend!I was really excited to purchase this set when it was first announced, and was thrilled when it arrived last week. The build was going great until I hit bag 6. Unfortunately it was very disappointing discover midway through the build that the set was missing several bricks. Now I'm stuck waiting up to 14 days for the for customer service to send the missing items. I only hope that bags 7-11 are complete. When it is finally finished, I'm sure it will become one of my favorite sets, it's just a shame that the build experience was interrupted and as a result my rating is a reflection of my disappointment.21 July 2021Jane, LEGO® Customer ServiceWe're sorry to hear you had missing parts, but really glad you reached out about it!
