- March 16th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Awesome!(& some small changes make it even better)I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI'd say this is the most realistic and detailed locomotive LEGO has ever made. It makes a wonderful display piece and is fun to play around with. It has some minor issues, the biggest one being the gaps between the noses and the cab, which are an eyesore and not realistic. I fixed this with a simple modification which uses some common pieces to fill in the gap without impacting the Crocodile's ability to go around curves (credit for the mod goes to Phil B on Eurobricks). It makes a huge difference! I'd also recommend removing the rubber bands around the wheels if you don't plan on motorizing the train. I hope that more amazing sets like this will follow.Play Experience4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 4 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Crocodile Locomotive
- October 2nd, 2020Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Powered up or Power functionsAdso222 |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is a good build and I hope Lego add to the series with some more classic trains like the Flying Scotsman. If you are adding the Power up motor #88013 and you use it with the Train Remote control #88010, you will find you have to keep your thumb on the plus button otherwise the motor will stop going. You can add the Power Functions L-motor #88003 but this will require a roof modification to add the IR receiver but this can be done see posted images, with this modification the train works as normal and you can vary the trains speed. Both motors seem to give the same speed output.Play Experience4.0Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 4 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Crocodile Locomotive
- July 6th, 2020Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Great Display SetPJEZ |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is a great display set, However, the play-ability factor is limited due to the required articulating parts, which total 4 connectors. This breaks the engine wheels into 5 segments. And this set is big. So when picking it up to move, it is a two handed operation. As for instructions, they are well done, but I would have preferred a white background instead of the black. I am looking forward to installing a technic motor, as the gears required to drive the train are part of the build. This is a really cool feature that I liked, and was my favourite part of the set. At different points we had three of our kids helping to build, which is priceless. Again, this is a great display set, and I look forward to more Creator LEGO trains in the future.Play Experience4.0Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 4 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Crocodile Locomotive

The instructions were really comprehensive and it was just a nice quiet day building a fantastic model. Everybody who has seen it is really impressed. Since building the model I have added a LED lighting kit and it looks great on a shelf.Play Experience4.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 6 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Crocodile Locomotive
