- May 2nd, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0AWESOMELegoStarWarsFan947585 | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfPositives: This was a super fun and fairly challenging build. It took longer than I expected but it was admittedly my biggest build yet. I loved the internal components and functionality they created. Overall, this is one of my favorite builds I’ve done and I would highly recommend it for older/more advanced lego fans. Looks just like R2, definitely a must have for any Star Wars fan! Negatives: -It would be nice if the tools would deployed completely upon pushing the back triggers. -I really think Lego needs to start printing plates for these types of models. I have no idea why they aren’t able to screen print a plate when you pay $200 for a set and I still have to put a sticker on the model. My dog got ahold of the sticker within a half hour of opening the set because the plate doesn’t come in the first bag and there is nowhere to attach it until the end of the build. -I wasn’t able to access the instructions on the app using the model number or QR code, I’m guessing because it’s a new model. But it would have made some steps a little easier being able to rotate the model on the screen in the instructions like I was able to when building the Razor Crest.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 10 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55R2-D2™
- May 6th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Well-executed model. My favorite set. A++Codester | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI have been building with Lego since I was 5 years old (am 35 now). I have not been purchasing sets for many years, in fact it's been since the 2012 since I last purchased, and it was the last R2D2 set. I have loved R2 since I was a kid, and always felt it was the perfect execution of a robot/droid/etc... Even though I've had hundreds of sets as a kid, many complicated sets from Technic and many random sets all those years, I kind of fell out of the game. Let's be honest, Lego is not cheap, and it's something you have to budget in as an adult. Once I heard about this new R2 unit coming out, I knew I had to have it. I waited in line for an hour at my local Lego store here in Austin and scored one of the last ones on hand on release day. It was a rainy day here in Austin, so I took it straight home and got to building. I was immediately impressed with the quality of the box, the manual, the pieces (they have changed formulas since I was a kid) and the build itself. Clearly a lot of time and thought went into this - from the design to the "3rd leg" mechanism - and it shows as the final product is truly a showpiece. I had a friend come over, someone who is not a nerd like me, and expected them to give me a hard time; even they were in awe of how nice it came out. I think they are actually purchasing in one too now because of it. Further, I have daily Zoom meetings with new people all the time (I'm in sales) and have strategically placed young R2 in the frame. I have gotten a positive comment from 100% of the people who have been on these meetings. Pretty awesome. I liked the first R2 build, but this kind of puts it to shame. It's a far better build, slightly more challenging, and aesthetically more pleasing. If you're on the fence, don't be. It's worth the $200 and will likely hold or gain value even after being unboxed/built. Plus, I kind of feel like a kid again (something my wife has been giving me a hard time about all week) as I actually have been "playing" with it. The thing just begs to be put back and forth into it's two main positions and the mechanism to do so, as mentioned, is just so well done. Great job to all involved in this project's design.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 4 hrs 30 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55R2-D2™
