    Once over the frustration of the App and navigating the build instructions, we were away. A great toy that my boys have enjoyed. Lego - Please please please can you offer a motor add on, along with the required pieces that will allow the 3 'droids' to be used simultaneously. At this price they should be included. Your imagery is almost misleading, showing all droids built, when this does not seem possible without three motors.

  • good gift, fun toy, expensive

    This is a pretty decent set, but I'd probably describe it more as an "experience" than a typical LEGO set. Be sure to check the requirements, as you will absolutely need to have the right type of device to use the corresponding app that goes with the "experience". From there, it's a decently challenging build for kids. I'd probably say a kid in the 8-10-year-old range is a good fit, maybe even a bit older. This is not something to give your five-year-old (especially one who can't read yet) and expect them to just figure it out, no matter how "smart" the kid is. Once you are really into building and using the app, the droids that are built are pretty neat. Note that there's only one "engine" that all three droids must share, but you can build all the droids at once. For the Star Wars and LEGO fan, this is perfect. Unlike most sets, the droids can actually do something and be something to play with rather than sit on a shelf. That said, it is pretty expensive for what it is. Would be a great gift for the kid in your life, especially if you want to be the "cool aunt/uncle" :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    This is a really challenging set to review. It's frustrating because the instructions were not as clear as normal sets we've done before and once completed it was pretty fragile. The app was also a pain to use. My son (age 7) lost interest before me and so I ended up putting it together. It's not the same type of set as other legos and I'd be hesitant to get anything else from this line. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
