- January 3rd, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Great build but misprint and missing piecesI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis was on e of my best lego builds I have ever done. So much detailing on the model and the size is impressive. The main issue I have with the set is that the booklet has errors as the instructions are not fully clear due to the binding (see images) and also I had missing piece. Not something you expect after paying £450!11 January 2021Jon, Customer ServiceHi there! Great to hear you enjoyed building the set.

- February 16th, 2021Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0An amazing build but...I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is truly a one of a kind build and a very long build, pat on the back to the builders for this one. The model from top to bottom is a lovely calm build with some hard parts here and there. Is it repetitive... yes, but in a way which is fun and not boring and long. This Is truly for adults for sure i cant see kids finding this fun. Now! For the bad part, the instructions where a huge downer from start to end, a set this size and price should have a binder kind of instructions and should all be one instruction not four. They got damaged in the single boxes, i have the ucs millennium falcon and i think that’s how it should have been. When building the pages where soo small that the instructions got lost at the seam and i often missed part and steps due to this issue, it was a huge let down Lego I don’t know how u missed that it is clear as Crystal. But with the negatives aside its truly an amazing set and am glad to have it in my collection and wish for further large lego sets you thing of small details.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 2 days 17 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Colosseum
- January 12th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0A masterpieceI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis set contains an unmatched quantity of detail and beauty: the qualities of what one can consider a masterpiece. For those who have said this set is ‘too repetitive’ or ‘you’re only building the same thing 40 times’ probably have not viewed the set in real life and taken the time to appreciate this. On the other hand, those who have purchased and constructed this set are able to view the set from 360 degrees, of which all angles share the beautiful design and architecture of the Roman’s infamous Colosseum. The plethora of detail like in the hypogeum reassures you that you have created the largest set of all time, and in my opinion, the greatest set of all time. I would recommend this set to anyone willing to take up the challenge of a 15 hour long and arduous build. Do not fear. The accomplishment of constructing this set is far greater than any set I have previously built and really begs the question: how gruelling must construction be for the slaves of Ancient Rome without a manual? For reasons listed above, this set truly deserves the title of the largest Lego set and is a masterpiece just like the 1951 year old Colosseum it portrays.

It's time consuming but well worth it in the end. Not only a set that you can proudly display for anybody to see but it will bring envy to all your friends. Building the Colosseum was an great accomplishment and I can't wait to see what Lego brings out next.Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 1 days 3 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Colosseum
