I'm a little bit subjective here, but i believe is one of the best Architecture sets. Definitely top three for me. It looks great as a display piece and it has the perfect size and proportions. I recommend it heavily.
My children enjoy building and collecting the Lego architecture sets. This is a nice addition to the collection. We paid around thirty two dollars which makes this one of the more affordable sets and a good value for the money. It is about twelve inches tall which makes it one of the taller sets. It took us about 90 minutes to put this together. There are a few very tricky steps and a lot of repetitive work as well. Overall, it looks good. The booklet that came with it was fun to read through. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the Lego Architecture series. The age says 12+ which is probably right for a child to do this alone. I put this together with my eight year old, and I had as much fun as he did.
Being my second Lego of this great Architecture collection, I enjoyed it very much. The instructions were clear and I was excited about building this amazing tower. The only areas I'd suggest to improve are the radio antenna (perhaps add an extra thinner antenna), the colour of the bricks (they are too grey whereas the real tower is made of puddling iron and not steel) and the cross sections to make it look more like the real one. Overall it was quite enjoyable, the four pillars, the iron platforms and the four arches are well made. It kept me busy for a while. Looking forward to my next set!
It is a very fun set to build perhaps the best of the Architecture series because the techniques used, since it is simply not adding parts in layers. It is also a set that incorporates the new 1×2 modified plate with stud with groove and inside stud holder, a new piece that will start to appear in 2014, definitely every follower of the Architecture series should have it.
We really like the sleek look of this building set. It makes a great collector's item and looks really nice when put out on display.
From the overall score the greatness of the model is not that obvious. From specific aspects, such as parts, price and build the model doesn't appear to be sticking out of the average. However, the design is well done, and it's a recognisable model of one of the most famous Paris' buildings.
Naturally, the finished model is not highly accurate... because it's about a thousandth smaller in scale and made of LEGO bricks. Replicating real things in microscale presents many challenges and tough choices have to made. [...] It's all a very tough balancing act, and for those designing an official set, probably the toughest challenge is that it also needs to follow TLG's (secret) rules around legal connections, stability and ease of construction. Not to mention hitting a price point. So hats off to the Designer, because the finished product is instantly recognisable.
I've been to the Eiffel Tower many years ago and had a wonderful time in Paris. However, I still feel no connection to this set. I'm sure it will look good on a shelf next to all the other Architecture sets that the hardcore collectors will have, if you're into that sort of thing. Personally, I prefer sets you can play and interact with.
Despite these niggles, I have no hesitation in recommending this set and I'm sure it will sell well, particularly in Paris where it will have no problems competing with the tacky souvenirs of the tower available there.
