- October 25th, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Sea LifeValerian70 | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI do have a love/hate relationship with this kit. I understand that one of the big selling points of this ship is the fact that it floats. However, this means that the base comes in to complete moulded pieces which allows for the lightness and air gaps needed for it to actually function on water. Whilst I appluad this from a playability point of view, from a building point of view it felt like I was cheating somehow. That said, all the little details and extra bits and bobs really elevate this set - I really loved the shipwreck piece. The ship itself has working cranes and raising and lowering the shark cage is more fun that a 50 year old should admit to having. Throw in a detailed ships bridge and crew quarters and there are lots of options for little fingers to play with this unit on dry land or the bathtub. Not only do you get standard mini figures with this set - including some divers - but you get some pre-moulded sea creatures. The shark is nice but my favourite is the stingray. The build was fun but I would love to see a non-floating version where I can build from the hull up.

- October 15th, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Amazing!I would recommend this to a friend!This Lego Ocean Exploration Ship is amazing! First of all, it's very fun and perfect for ages 7+. This ship is very easy to assemble. The directions are very easy to follow. My 8 year old son had a lot of fun putting this together and playing with afterwards. There's so many cool details. It actually didn't take long to build, literally took an hour to do it. I really love this set.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Was this helpful?55Ocean Exploration Ship
- September 28th, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0I work on ships like thisOffshoreWorker | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfAfter a 20-year break from Lego, I now have a young son and decided to see what Lego has to offer these days, since I loved it as a kid. This set immediately caught my eye, as I have over a decade of experience working on survey vessels just like this one! I was really excited to build it, and it did not disappoint. The designers clearly studied research and survey vessels before inventing this, because the level of detail is fantastic, and frequently surprised me. The little touches like the radar on top of the bridge that can spin round, and alongside it the satellite receiver (looks like a grey cone) are great. The detail on the minifigures is also excellent, especially the BA sets on the divers. The build itself was a lot of fun, as it starts with the smaller craft before moving on to the main vessel. There were only about 8 different stickers, most of them optional. I left off the yellow stripes on the hull. The pirate ship wreck is a really nice addition, you could stick it to the bottom of the bathtub with some blu-tack if you wanted! I also love the new shark design, as it can fit a whole minifigure inside, and you get a stingray too. The main vessel is not particularly challenging to build, although it is a lot of fun to see how the 3 different decks come together. You have the lab and mess area on the bottom, then the accommodation in the middle, and the bridge at the top. It’s very clever how the different decks can pop off easily, and if you prefer, you can have the bridge facing the other way (as all the vessels I’ve worked on have it). There are doors at the rear of the bridge, as well as hatches at the top to access the minifigures inside. It’s a sturdy construction when put together - the two floating base pieces seem well connected. I haven’t really stress-tested it, but you can hold one end of it without the front falling off ;) By far the trickiest (but best) part of the build is the main crane. The only part I had to re-do was the winch cable, but once I figured out how to hide the excess cable it looked great - no loose ends. The range of motion the main crane has is very impressive - it can slide fore and aft, rotate 360 degrees, and the arm can raise and lower using a worm gear system. The winch is controlled from the top of the arm, the arm itself from the base. There is actually a smaller crane at the aft of the vessel, which can deploy the fast rescue craft (FRC) either side of the ship, which I was delighted with. In fact, one of the best things about this set is how all the auxiliary craft have a place on the main ship, without it looking crowded. The submarine can fit in the forward hold, underneath the helipad, so it’s out of the way until the crane needs to lift it out. The helicopter sits on the pad, the shark cage can hang on the crane (or if you prefer to stow it, you’ll need a 2x2 brick from somewhere so it can attach to the deck), and the FRC sits nicely on the aft of the vessel, held there by the small crane. The FRC also floats, which is another bonus to this set! Overall it’s a terrific set as it is, however it has reminded me what I love so much about Lego - the way it can spark the imagination! I can already see things I would like to change and build differently with this set, and I can’t wait to try them out. I’d highly recommend this to just about anyone - I certainly enjoyed playing with it in the bath!Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Build Time: 3 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Ocean Exploration Ship
- June 13th, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0If your have a bathtub at home...Icebeam | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: Friend or Family Member's ChildFun Lego to make Me and my wife try to collect ship Lego and this actually was our first one. Compared with pirate ship or other Lego ship series it was not so hard to make or detailed which could be a good thing in some ways. But there was extra little bits such as submarine and helicopters and etc which made the build for exciting. After the build me, wife and kids all went inside the bathtub and see how it was flowing. Huge sized Lego ship floats inside our tub and kids just loved it so much. Highly recommend!Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 2 hrs 40 minsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Ocean Exploration Ship
