- September 17th, 2020Average rating3out of 5 stars3.0Great fun to build, but end product disappointingPurchased for: SelfMy wife gifted me a small Harry Potter Lego set for my birthday (I'm a huge Harry Potter fan), after which I sort of got hooked onto Lego and searched for additional builds. I love cars, so I decided to buy the Technic build of Lego. It was immense fun building this set, to see the car come alive bit by bit, but the end result was extremely disappointing. For starters, the rear suspensions were not strong enough to carry the weight of the car (pictures attached for reference). Secondly, the tie-rods that attach the wheels to the steering column scrape against the wheel rim from the inside which causes the front wheels to drag and not move smoothly (pic attached). What's even worse is the rear wheels which are attached via the transmission at the rear do not move at all because one of the major gears inside grinds badly against a red colored washer (again, pic attached). The problem about the gear grinding against the washer is something i came across while I was building the transmission, I actually rebuilt the transmission 3 times to see if the problem got solved but every time part 6133119 (grey gear) continued to grind and get stuck onto part 4227155 (red washer). I have attached a video for reference too. I bought this set from Amazon, and even though I love the look and feel of the overall build and enjoyed the process of building this set, I must say that the end result is extremely disappointing.Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Building Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?35Land Rover Defender
- March 22nd, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Off RoadValerian70 | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is definitely one for an experienced Technic builder - or for a novice that has access to an experienced builder. It is nicely complex and the engine build is genuinely absorbing and detailed. If working from the manual it can be difficult to deifne exactly where that small pin goes or how the sections you have just built slot together. If you have built a fair few large Technic sets this is much easier to figure out OR you can cross your fingers and hope the set comes with Instructions PLUS online. Unfortunately, this particular model doesn't have that feature so you are on your own but it is worth persevering with. The detailing on the vehicle is great and it does look the business externally. I particularly like the storage solutions on the roof and even the side mounted ladder to reach them. The gearing system actually works (if you built it right!) and it does make this fun to actually play around with and although I doubt this would be purchased as a toy it is super strong and would handle some tough play. Overall, this is one of the few builds I was genuinely upset to complete. I was having such a good time constructing this vehicle it was disappointing when it was finished but it does look great on my vehicles shelf. One of my favourite Technic builds due to the engine build (my favourite bit!)

- April 25th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Very engaging and technically impressive!I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI wasn't really expecting anything great from this set, I'm not a massive land-rover fan and it doesn't really look massively impressive in pictures but I literally stumbled across this set on the Argos app whilst shopping for bedding, and it was on offer for £106 (that's 1/3 off) so I was in! This is without question my best purchase of the year. The build was an absolute joy and I was a little (pleasantly) surprised at how technical a build it is considering the price point. Although maybe the brick count should have been a clue. This was definitely one of the more challenging builds I've done, but it wasn't especially hard, just very engaging. It was an pleasure watching everything come together, the 4wd and transmission system is very trick, and a different engine from what I've become accustomed to from Lego/Technic was a breath of fresh air. The mechanism for the rear door was another surprise, and definitely a positive addition to the experience. The entire build was rewarding, and the end result is, in my opinion, well worth the effort. Although I got this with a decent discount I would gladly have paid list price for it had I of known how great a build it would be. It certainly fits my collection better than I expected. I actually think this is more fun and rewarding to build than set 42115 Lamborghini Sián, although maybe not as impressive to look at upon completion.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?55Land Rover Defender
- January 16th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Thank you LegoCowsXDouldlad | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI’m a Lego parent that has witnessed greater than 50 sets coming into our household since my last set, the old Millennium Falcon maybe ten plus years ago. I was becoming a little jealous of how much fun my kids were having so wanted a piece of the action. I was drawn to the Technic (never owned or built before) and in particular the Land Rover Defender primarily to experience something challenging (I suppose I’m a novice to intermediate builder) but also loved the overall design. The reviews and apparent value considering the piece count sealed the deal. I was super excited when it arrived and really wanted to take my time and enjoy the build experience. I really hit the jackpot with this set. The packaging and presentation was sublime. Instruction book and the number of bags (bags within bags) were a little over-whelming but again this was the challenge I wanted. It took me 7 days spread out with an hour on weekdays after work in the evenings and 4/5 hours on each of the weekend days. I honestly enjoyed every minute of the build and even caught myself smiling on numerous occasions where I sat back and reflected on what a great decision it was to invest in this set. Seeing every element come together was excellent. When it was completed I was like my kids calling every family member in to look at my creation to show off all the features, gears and engine. Everything was smooth and working well with one exception; the pistons of the engine were not working. I know some other reviewers were frustrated after such investment of time but I was actually delighted as it gave me a new project to root cause the error. After twisting and turning the vehicle upside and down trying all the different cogs, reviewing videos and learning a lot more about the build, I was systematically able to root cause the issue all the way back to step 11 (out of 800+ steps), wow, right at the start of the build – which makes perfect sense… I was so rusty and eye sight not what it used to be! Perhaps lucky (although I didn’t mind ‘starting over’) I was able to remove ca. 20 pieces and get to the fault and rectify. Oh the joy when I saw those pistons go up and down and all my efforts being paid off. Pros: + Challenging + Time to Build + Design & Appearance + Engine & Gears + Features Cons: None. Thank you Lego, I can’t emphasise how much I enjoyed this and really well done to all involved in this design.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 7 daysBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Land Rover Defender
