- 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!

- July 2nd, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Amazing!Birdo |I would recommend this to a friend!One of the coolest, most gorgeous sets I’ve ever built. Perfect for collectors or anyone looking for a great piece to display. The build itself was challenging but so very worth it. The sound of the keys is also almost exactly what a real typewriter sounds like! It’s just so dang cool.Play Experience5.0Value for Money5.0Was this helpful?55Typewriter
- July 25th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Look Familiar?I would recommend this to a friend!As someone who has always been interested in vintage typewriters, I was extremely excited when Lego announced the typewriter set. I became even more excited when the first images of the set were released and I realized it looked similar to my own vintage typewriter from 1957. Building this set was challenging, but it was a fun experience. It was interesting to see how the inner workings of a typewriter were created with Legos, and I look forward to displaying it!Play Experience4.0Value for Money5.0Was this helpful?55Typewriter
