- September 15th, 2016Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Highly Addictive, incredibly imaginativeTama |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: DaughterWow Lego, Ideas has produced something truly timeless and imaginative, for me this epitomises what Lego is all about. The control system is both ergonomic and easy to manage, the changeability of the Mazes is genius, and the fact that there are two distinct variations combined with many more options out of the box is a nice touch. In our house the Maze moves around a lot, as a result there is great use made of the well thought out storage and transport "system". The only thing I have found is that the outer frame from the strain tends to drift slowly apart so I am constantly having to push it back together (maybe I'll "Cragle" it later). In terms of others comments regarding the balls' flat spot and single sided controls this hasn't been an issue for me or my son at all, let alone anyone else who's played with it ... and it gets a lot of play. We truly love this model and for me it is one of the most versatile, a great introduction to encouraging young designers to custom Lego building.September 20, 2016Jonathan, LEGO® Consumer Service Specialist, Consumer ServiceIt is wonderful to see that you love this set as much as I do! There are so many ways to customize the builds, that the only real limitation is our imaginations. It seems like there is some instability with the framework of your Maze. I would recommend rebuilding it as presented in the building instructions so you can see if that was the issue, or if there is a need to replace a part. Hopefully it is just something that needs to be secured. As always, I hope that you continue to push the limit of your imagination, and thank you for the review!Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Maze
- April 7th, 2016Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Awesome Idea, Minor FlawsDomokun |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfJust received the Lego Maze in the mail today and couldn't wait to put it together. Threw the whole thing together in about 3 hours (including a light lunch). Overall I love the mechanics/inner mechanisms that make the maze work, it is pretty cool to see how the tilting action takes place. I LOVE the idea that it is insanely modifiable and that many people can submit ideas, build multiple levels, have different themes (I'm working on a star wars one), but there is one major problem. In 2 directions the maze is greatly hampered in its ability to tilt. Sometimes when you are in a corner of the maze, you can't tilt enough to actually get it moving, so I do fear my wish to make a 2 story maze will greatly be influenced on the directions in which I can tilt hard enough to get up a ramp. I believe it is fixable by using a straight piece rather than an L shaped piece with a shorter connector, but without a different sized connector I don't think I can fix it with the parts included. I'll have to cannibalize another set to fix it. The idea was great, the execution was a bit off, if I am able to make it work with the pieces included I'll submit an edit.Play ExperienceAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 3 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Maze
- April 11th, 2016Average rating1out of 5 stars1.0Wanted to love this set but can't.Purchased for: SelfI normally don't write reviews as it is only my view on something, but this set is horrible how Lego emplamented it. First I will say it was a fun build, but I could see the problems right from the get go. The frames only being 1 stud wide simply doesn't have the clutch power to hold the frames together. Every time I remove the maze surface and install it the inner frame falls apart. This I would consider a medium flaw. Now the fatle flaw, the tilt. The inner frame only tilts 2 degrees yes 2 towards the yellow side of the set. That is simply not aceptable to me. JWBricks does have a fix for this, but that takes away from the structure of the set without buying more parts. I will be contacting LEGO to see if they will send me the needed parts to fix this set. Overall if you on the fence about this set I would wait. I have a felling this set will be recalled just like the Wall-e set was and a fix issued, well I hope anyway.Play ExperienceAverage rating1out of 5 stars1.0Value for MoneyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?15Maze
- May 18th, 2016Average rating3out of 5 stars3.0Nice idea with one major engineering failI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfFirstly I'll explain the problem, as it's nothing to do with a "faulty part" as LEGO suggested in their response to one review... There are two connecting bars ("Track Rod 6M", element ID "4211026"). They are both the same length - this is what causes the tilting to be wrong as some previous reviewers have noted. In order to correct this problem LEGO will need to produce a rod that is a little shorter to be connected to the inner tray section - if they can do that (and issue them to every one that has bought this!), this will be so much better as a build! I must admit I have no idea how this got past the LEGO "engineers", as it is a very basic flaw... But on to the rest of it. This is a fairly straight-forward build, with colour coding to make sure you always have it the right way round. If you follow the instructions properly it it's quite robust and never feels flimsy or in danger of falling apart, although the actual baseplate could have done with being a little thicker just to give it the feeling of being built on something sturdy. There are a truly staggering amount of flat-top plates, which makes it a great purchase if you enjoy designing your own structures and need a large number - although it should be noted that most are beige. On the subject of designing your own...once you've built the two mazes for which instructions are provided, there are another couple they show finished - and the internet is already producing some very nice designs, so the rebuild possibilities are superb even if you (like me) suck at design ;) All in all, it's a pretty good set, with plenty of scope - but the "engineers" really should have spotted (and corrected!) the glaring problem...Play ExperienceAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 4 hrsWas this helpful?35Maze
