I love anything LEGO but when I saw the announcement for this set, I knew I had to get it ASAP. Luckily, VIP card holders could order it a week early (it’s coming out on March 1st) and I received it yesterday – I got interrupted by the postman as I was building Shanghai Architecture set. That was a nice surprise!
I really enjoyed building this set: the colors are great (the separator tool comes in teal), the details are cool, the car comes with a large order of ribs, etc. The only thing missing is Dino, the Flintstones pet.
I was very excited to get the Shanghai Architecture set, as I’ve been there a couple of years ago. Interestingly, though, one of the buildings wasn’t there yet when I went: the Shanghai Tower was only completed in 2015.
Overall, it was a nice build but I have to admit I was a little disappointed by the Shanghai World Financial Center – the one that looks like a bottle opener. All Architecture sets I built so far look nice both from the front and back. With the Shanghai set though, if you look at it from the back, you’ll see the “bottle opener” building doesn’t look complete.
