Very cool set. My son loves legos and Cars so it is the perfect combination. I like how each individual lego car looks so much like they do in the movie. Lego definitely works hard to pay attention to the little details. Great instructions, great item, a little overpriced but all legos are nowadays!

Like most other Cars sets, if you're hard up on collecting all the characters, its a must-buy since it contains all unique cars, which is great. No repeats. Just try to get it on sale, though, so that a good deal can offset the terrible design of Siddeley.
