- December 11th, 2020Average rating3out of 5 stars3.0Moderately okay.BlockyCheetah | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI would say function wise, this is a really neat brick. It's fun to remote control trains and other things. The ability to use bluetooth is also very nice. As you don't have to have a controller for every device. The problems kinda distract from that though. The price is a tad bit high, especially if you need more than one. As many others have said having to remove screws to change the batteries just seems like a future problem. It would have been much better to have a simple block to lock the batteries in. Perhaps though, that is more about safety for children. The battery life, is neither something to brag about or to hate on too much. It does go a bit fast, and I would recommend to anyone using it, to have some rechargeable batteries. I do like though that you can have multiples of these, running at the same time. The ability to have different "channels" or "colors" is very nice. I imagine any family who has multiple trains or other items, that could run at the same time would love this feature. It would make playing with siblings or others much easier.Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Building Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?35Hub
- July 6th, 2020Average rating1out of 5 stars1.0Simply Not Worth the PriceThomas99 | 19-24Purchased for: SelfI give lots of credit to LEGO for releasing a new line of power function systems, but for the price it simply is not worth it. I build custom LEGO trains/models and typically use the normal LEGO Power Functions for my builds. They work great! These however I have not been overly impressed with. For me to power my new LEGO 10277 it would cost in USD $112.97 which is outrageous. That is more than what the set costs to begin with. With the previous line-up of Power Functions I could power the set for USD $54.96. Even though there is not room to fit the IR receiver, I will be willing to make it work for the price difference. Overall, I love the ability to use the new line-up without a IR Receiver taking up space, but it simply is not worth the price. If LEGO retires the current line of "Power Functions," I more than likely will not be buying the new "Powered-Up" systems in the future and will turn to alternative options unless the price drops significantly. Happy Building!!Play ExperienceAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Value for MoneyAverage rating1out of 5 stars1.0Building Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?15Hub
- October 10th, 2019Average rating2out of 5 stars2.0Yet another incompatible systemcbnaum | 45-54Purchased for: SelfWe have gone for the 9V system, to the power functions system, with a side detour to the mindstorm systems, and now to the power-up system. And largely, these systems do not work together. I dislike the power up system for several reasons. There are no extension cables, you cannot build large models with it. The connectors are completely unique to LEGO, you cannot make your own cables or buy them from third parties. There are no rechargeable battery pack meaning you may have to take a model apart to replace the batteries. These elements existed under the power function system, but not under this new system. And this new system really does not do anything that the power functions system could not have done. The Bluetooth controller is cool, it is fun to be able to control your models with a mobile device, but this could have easily been added to the power functions system without breaking compatibility (3rd parties have been offering Bluetooth controller for power functions for a while.) Bottom line: different, incompatible, more expensive, fewer accessories, less flexibility... I do not see much here to like.14 October 2019Keith, Customer ServiceHi there, thanks for your feedback. While LEGO play will always be rooted in the brick, it's important to us that we embrace new technologies so today's children can continue to learn and enjoy the latest play experiences. Powered UP offers several advantages not possible with the old Power Functions system, including smartphone and tablet based control, integration of the "battery box" and "receiver" into a single unit, and much greater proximity via bluetooth. While rechargeable battery packs and extension cables aren't available for powered UP just yet, you never know what our designers will come up with next as we continue to expand platform!Play ExperienceAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating1out of 5 stars1.0Value for MoneyAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Building Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?25Hub
