- February 18th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Architectural wonder...not to be rushed.I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfAfter building the Saturn V rocket, I felt the sudden urge to build something bigger that I could take my time over. The Colosseum more than satisfied that urge and reignited my passion for Lego I hadn’t had since childhood. Spending a few hours a day for a week kept the interest going and prevented madness setting in over continuous repeated sections. Now that it’s complete, I can’t help but admire the architectural detail gone into creating this set. The photos and background info of the real Colosseum in the 4 instruction books are a nice touch. Decided to include a few mini figures to the arena to enhance its display.Building Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Colosseum
- December 23rd, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Amazing set! Extremely detailed! A++++I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis set is definitely one of the best sets I’ve ever purchased. It is extremely detailed all the way down to the columns. The biggest flaw, as most of you may know, is that it is extremely repetitive. You’re practically doing the same thing over and over again. I have to admit that as someone with autism, repetition is something I love. That may be why it took less time than I thought to build it. But if you don’t mind excessive repetition, this set is definitely for you. The price was phenomenal seeing the amount of pieces it has. You always get more for your money with the Creator Expert Line. Overall, if you’re someone who likes architecture and national monuments. This set is definitely for you.Play Experience3.0Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 17 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Colosseum
- May 30th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0I recommend this to everyone!JimboL |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is the most beautiful, magnificent Lego model I've ever built. Even though a little repetitive, each column is slightly different and the Colosseum grows before your eyes which is very satisfying. The build quality is typical Lego standard - solid! You can pick it up and move it around easily, and there was not 1 piece missing - amazing Lego quality control! This will be a talking point anywhere - buy and build it while you can!Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 10 daysBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Colosseum
- December 1st, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0What an amazing build.wazgb |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfBeing an avid lover of all things Rome, and Roman history, this was a day one purchase for me. From opening up the box to placing the final piece, this felt like an epic journey the likes of which I’ve never had before with any other set. The base is amazingly supportive with plenty of Easter eggs embedded into it, with colours representing the Colosseums history and geology. As you start to build the walls of the structure itself, you soon get into that repetition that everyone talks about, but you also understand that it’s that same repetitiveness that creates the Colosseums amazing look! (Spare a thought for what the slaves went through). I loved the way this set comes together in sections rather than being built from the ground up, because when you finally join the final section together and complete the oval shaped wonder, it really leaves you in awe of what the designer has accomplished here! For the full experience, I highly recommend finding a good documentary on the Colosseum, and learning about its creation and history, as it will undoubtably give you a greater experience and satisfaction while building this set. I personally absolutely loved building this set, and for me, it was worth every penny!
