disappointing jigsaw, nice LOTR item
on 5 January 2014
I bought this, thinking it would be a jigsaw puzzle with extra features. I was quite disappointed to find out I had to remove a lot of off-cuts myself, which took nearly as much time as the actual build of the jigsaw.
The jigsaw itself wasn't too challenging, probably less than a regular 500pcs puzzle. Most pieces were easy to place due to the recognizable prints, and you end up with about 40 parts to construct the 3d building.
After laying out all separate parts, construction begins. This is just a matter of following the instructions. You end up with something resembling the product image, but showing a lot more of the foam backside of the puzzle pieces than expected.
I don't expect this puzzle to stand more than 1 or 2 builds.
- lot of time spent on cleaning up the off-cuts
- (too) easy jigsaw
- reasonable end-result: good quality print, but less impressive than the image suggests.
- probably good for LOTR fans, not so good for jigsaw fans.
