Can't play with it or it will collapse, 6 Jan. 2009
Having now read the reviews I agree with most that this is not to be played with as a toy. For that reason it is difficult to review as a toy. It will also take you a lot longer than 2 hours to build! The 'numbered' bag system is a joke and it is not long before you are halted and need to look through lots of other bags to find the missing pieces. The 'toy' has a lot of features but there is no point as you can't lift it without it falling apart. The top of the ship also comes off but the release mechanism is so sticky that you can't remove the top without it falling to pieces in your hands. (It is worth noting that this is doubly difficult to re-build after it has collapsed).
It is a shame as the finished article looks good and has obviously taken a lot of effort to design and create. It is not a toy, however, but a model to sit on a large shelf and not be touched (unless you want to superglue it together as you go along!).
I did get a good price on Amazon though at the time of purchase.
