Great Lego Set – By B. J. Black on March 1, 2016
Very nice Lego set. A great gift for an adult who loves a challenge.
Gorgeous and detailed! Fragile, though – By Kirk Hilles on February 22, 2016
Its pretty simple. You’re either going to get this or you’re not. You either MUST absolutely own this (at $99 currently, not too bad either) or its not really high on your list. This car will get your heart beating if you’re into exotics and/or Ferraris. Licensed and detailed, the engine is Awesome, the fact you can raise both front and rear hoods is Awesome, wheels are Awesome… everything is Awesome. LOL. I finished it last weekend and just brought it to work and can’t stop staring at it.
Now, here is the thing though. I’m no Lego expert, so maybe its not 100% correct, but its pretty fragile. My drivers side door keeps coming off as do a number of other pieces when any sort of pressure is applied… anywhere. It would be cool also if the stand that holds up the rear hood was built in – instead its just a separate piece that you have to prop up manually and isn’t held down anywhere. I also can’t get either the front nor rear hoods to be completely flush. Sometimes I have to kind of push the front hood in, so it’ll fit back in properly (again, maybe I made a mistake somewhere or during fixes). The seats fall out too which is annoying to put back in after its fully built.
But, that last paragraph doesn’t really matter does it? Not, if you’re going to be displaying it or looking at it. This is not a Star Destroyer or a solid house. This is not for kids to be playing with. If you’re old enough to remember the F40, you’re old enough to enjoy the detail and can fix it again when someone touches it.
Buy it now while its still cheap. This is the only car (that I’m aware of) in high 1,000+ detail other than the Hippy VW van or original Mini (neither of which I’m interested in). I’m sure this kit will sell for 2X-3X in a few years unless that trend continues. I hope Lego comes up with a Lambo next. Do a Diablo and I’ll jump on it.
Great kit of a classic Ferrari – By Matthew Gillett on February 19, 2016
Very fun, well detailed build. Didn’t take terribly long to build, but long enough that it felt like an “expert” kit. Looks great on my office shelf.
