This set is truly amazing, but I honestly feel they should've made the heads like they did with the Simpsons as well as Toy Story by creating special molds for them. I feel cartoon characters need to have special molded heads Like they did for the Simpsons heads and Toy Story which were designed extremely well! Many fans for the Simpson figures as well as Toy Story that love the head sculpted designs wanted that same design for this Flintstones set and the characters included were not done very well. For one, Barney should have got the shorter new movable teen legs that the Harry potter figs now have. The Flintsones heads definitely should've been done the same as the Simpsons heads! Big miss! Also, the set really should've included DINO as well as the BEDROCK sign And also the floor boards on the car should be open so Fred's feet should have the effect of touching the ground like in the show. Animal appliances, where are they LEGO?? LEGO should have not made changes to exclude Bam Bam, Pebbles and Dino... TO LEGO, if the fans voted 10k to want the set including Dino, Bam Bam and Pebbles then why would you exclude them from the set makes no sense and just like the Steam Boat willie set coming April 1st is $90 many would have paid more then $60 for the Flintstones set if you just kept in those figures you decided to take away to save on cost that collectors would have paid more 100% for those characters included! Bad move LEGO... This set was made for Nostalgia collectors and you removed very important characters that were voted for by the fans and you should have listened to US THE FANS THAT SUPPORT YOU more then an average customer! Putting DINO on the TV is not good enough!!!! Other than that the set is epic and I love it still! Imagine a Nice head scultp for the Flintstone characters like the Amazing Simpson figures as well as Toy Story style is and how iconic Freds face is with his big nose would be amazing with a sculpted mold. How great would it be to see a NEWLY sculpted well made DINO with movable arms, rotable head like the New dinosaur scuplts on the market now. The figures they have in this Flintstone set are whack especially, how they have like an outline where his nose can be, but really no nose??? These official Lego heads released with the Flintstones set are whack compared to if you made sculpted heads. All the Flintstones characters each have a unique head to them and it was a huge miss not to do it like the Simpsons or Toy Story characters! Yes, obviously sclupted heads would drive up the cost, but LEGO can then make an excuse to re-use those heads in future Flintsone sets to give us more from the caveman Iconic cartoon series... Give us all of Bedrock! (Bowling Alley) etc.... Give us the character the Great Gazoo with a small body and big sclupted head in a future set please!!!! Give the Flintstones Justice by releasing them with sclupted heads!

If you had never seen the original submission before, I reckon you'd be pretty happy, but for those of us that have, it could have been so much more.

What we are given is great, there's no disputing that, and if you were not aware of the original proposal, there would be nothing much to complain about. But if you are, you can't help feeling that it could have been better.

Recommendation: meh by Tim Johnson

Considering any limitations that go with the compact size of the set, the Flintstones vibe was captured truthfully. The tiger-striped curtains, slanted boulder roof, foot-powered car and stone-age furniture are all instantly recognizable features of the cult series. With the evolving LEGO brick system increasingly lending itself to organic shapes, it was only natural to put these two timeless icons together.

The Flintstones maybe an odd choice for a LEGO set, it's no longer on TV so most kids will probably be unfamiliar with the show and its history. So I'd definitely say the set is aimed towards older LEGO fans. That being said it's not a complex build but I quite enjoyed building it. I like how the building has been give texture thanks to layered plates and the chimney is great. I was expecting the roof to fall off just by looking at it, but I'm surprised how well it remains in place considering it's not actually connected to anything. These all help to give the set a little character. The car is a decent representation of the what's seen in the cartoon, albeit with a few tweaks to make it work with LEGO elements.

Recommendation: meh by Graham

This set looks like an animated scene come to LEGO life, which is about all anyone could ask for from a set based on The Flintstones. It is a shame that core characters were skipped, but what is in the box is well designed. It is unlikely that the modern Stone Age family will be released in a LEGO set ever again, so those who are Flintstones fans should get this release – even if it isn't perfect – and have a yabba-dabba-doo time, a dabba-doo time, have a gay old time.

Recommendation: meh by Alexander

You may not be the biggest fan of space rockets, a certain TV show, or movie, but this is what I love about LEGO Ideas sets the most — they always surprise you with something you would never expect to see on store shelves. However, I felt LEGO Ideas 21316 The Flintstones was going to make me want to re-watch the best episodes of the show and find a place in my room to have the set on display, but that magic didn't happen. It feels like I only have half of the set I was expecting to get, which makes me feel a little sad. Don't get me wrong; everything included in the box looks awesome and even made me “yabba dabba doo!" here and there, but every time I want to recreate a certain scene or take a particular picture I can't help but notice the set's limitations: a lack of characters, a lack of extra facial expressions, and a lack of free space inside the house.
