    Awful Building Experience
    | 25-34
    Purchased for: Self
    When I finished my No.2 step of building and attempted to text the second Bluetooth Hub whether it can normally work. Consequently, it cannot to connect to phone. I thought the first Hub repair successfully so that the problem is not from my phone or app, just up to Hub itself. I try to figure out why and follow the instruction to set it up many times. However, absolutely, it still keep being unconnected with app. I try to contact customer service by email. But I have to wait a couple days for response when I received the lego systemic replying email. there is only way to stop building and wait for solution. I hope It will be solved. I realize that the electronic component absolutely unreliable than the physical one, so that I don’t recommend this product.

    Thanks for your review. I'm sorry to hear you've experienced some frustration with the power functions for the Liebherr R 9800 Excavator! To get your build back on course, make sure to continue on to the steps using bag 3 — this way the three motors that are added will alert the Smart hub that the components are ready to connect. If you connect the three motors in the subsequent steps, and still can't get started, please get in touch with us at LEGO.build/Service and we'll be happy to help get your excavator up and running!

    Bought this to build over xmas for myself. What an amazing build/set. However on the downside it wasn't until the last stages of construction that 2 missing pieces became apparent resulting in being unable to finish off this beast. IT was bags no.5 that 2 missing pieces became apparent. Have filled in missing piece request from lego. No problems with testing of hubs.

    This is by far the most satisfying build of all the Lego kits I've assembled in my life time. The final model is sturdy, and feels very solid, such that you are not afraid to pick it up and move it around- no loose pieces falling off when operational. There is plenty of detailing on the excavator, from cockpit controls (barely visible), to rubber hydraulic hoses, and lots of railings, and nicely made cooling fan blades (again barely visible), doors that open to reveal the hydraulic pumps, and many other details that make this model so realistic. After reading reviews from Lego suggesting that you should NOT test the electronics until all motors and hubs are completely connected was a truism, because nothing will happen if one tries to run the tests that are suggested in the manual. And it was rather scary waiting so far into the build to see if anything worked, but everything did spring to life at the end of assembly. The cell phone control app. was also quite amazing in how many ways it gives you to control the model. The movements from all seven motors was smooth and gave realistic actions. This was in a whole new class of Legos! I can hardly wait to see what the future brings in this type of complex, remote controllable, realistic, solid, robotic devices. This was a really fun kit to assemble, and also, plenty of fun to operate. Enjoy the journey!

    Best play experience ever had
    | 25-34
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    First of all this set is not that “technic” compared to some of the “groundbreaking” flag ship sets. One thing I really need to give credit to is the play experience. Honestly Id rather have a set that’s ok interesting to build and works great after built( especially for sets with power functions ) than a set that has a fancy gear box and long drive trains but doesn’t work as smooth as you would expect. This is something that I always had complaints about technic sets. The Arocs is probably the only set that’s satisfying to build as well as to play with. (Highly recommend this set) So in terms of play experience this set really does a great job, everything works really smoothly(thanks to the short drive trains). APP works good as well. The only minor issue with the set is driving. The motors for the tracks is a little bit on the weak side. While on a perfectly flat surface it works great. When on a slightly rougher surface turning is almost impossible as it can no longer handle the torque without triggering the new clutch. A bit disappointed but none the less a fantastic set.
