- January 3rd, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Great build but misprint and missing piecesJamie5454 | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis was on e of my best lego builds I have ever done. So much detailing on the model and the size is impressive. The main issue I have with the set is that the booklet has errors as the instructions are not fully clear due to the binding (see images) and also I had missing piece. Not something you expect after paying £450!January 11, 2021Jon, Customer ServiceHi there! Great to hear you enjoyed building the set.

- February 7th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0If you have been there, you need it.Grrarch | 55-64I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis set is a beast. I am an architect so I love the Lego Architecture Series having built most of the Frank Lloyd Wright sets. I think that the set is as close as you can get with Lego blocks without doubling the size of the build. I took my adult children to the Colosseum in 2014 so when I heard about the set, I had to have it. I would not recommend this set for anyone who is impatient and be very careful about orientation of pieces, it makes a difference. One reviewer said that it took them 10.5 hours. Either someone was handing them blocks or they were taking caffeine through an IV. 20 hours is a more reasonable expectation, but really what is the rush. Enjoy it. I heard that there may be a set for the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, bring it on!Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 2 days 5 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Colosseum
- February 15th, 2021Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Fragile...but, Glorious.I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is an amazing set and challenging build. The packaging, design and instruction book are all stunning. Just opening the box is special. The build is exciting and instructive. The four boxes contain a combined 40-bags. That breaking up of the work makes it all seem doable. I will agree with some reviews that call the work "often repetitious." But, that never slowed me down. The most challenging part was working on the larger tower sections. Connection of those could often lead to disaster and rebuilds. The fragility of the set (because of the ball and pocket grasping system) is often a surprise as one snap can cause a cascade of destruction. But, once done, you have a gorgeous set that is a must-have and a conversation starter. Most visitors end up taking picture of it - it is that special.Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 6 daysBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Colosseum

It's time consuming but well worth it in the end. Not only a set that you can proudly display for anybody to see but it will bring envy to all your friends. Building the Colosseum was an great accomplishment and I can't wait to see what Lego brings out next.Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 1 days 3 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Colosseum
