Recommendation: no 3.9 / 5 from 25 reviews

I've bought and built many lego products with my children. When purchasing this, I assumed it was like other lego products that have paper instructions. That is not the case here. Instead you are forced to install an application that is totally intrusive (needs all sorts of device permissions) and does not actually even walk you through to the point of building. Instead it forces you to watch unskippable videos. Once you finally get to the instructions, it's extremely tedious and painful having to hit next after putting one or two pieces together. That being said, my kids and I built R2-D2 and it was a pretty fun watching them playing around with the controls and having it do their commands. I've updated my review to three stars for the fact that once you finish all the tedious work, the end product makes up for it. Mostly. It's still a garbage application that could have been broken out to JUST doing the portion of controlling the machines once built

To make a fair review I would need to finish all missions at the least, but I can't pass the 'decoding the message' one and I don't get why. Do I need to change the programming to check all four colors or just the first 2? I've tried both but in either case I can't get a clear. Please help! Another issue: I often can't get white to be registered correctly with the color sensors in my environment. Any tips on that? Makes some missions very hard to do. I'll write that proper review when I'm done, I promise ;) (but otherwise, where else to go to for help with this product? Support email?)

Recommendation: meh by Jetro de Château

Little by little you build different props and attachments that help you set the stage for each mission and the link between the on-screen experience and the physical play is really fun.

Recommendation: meh by TobyMac

Well, for the build, it's a bit disapointing. They look nice, but a little odd. But the building is not the focus of this set, it's the Boost system. And for that: it works great! For me, there was little challenge in completing the missions, but for smaller kids, this is a great introduction to programming. They'll take longer than me to get through all challenges, so the playtime is also longer.
