Beautiful Model, Frustrating Build
There isn’t a ton of information out there about this beast, so here’s my fairly long winded take. TLDR; it looks beautiful! Complete PITA to build due in large part to the brick quality.
I purchased the NON-MOTORIZED version on December 1st, but then decided I reeeeaaally wanted the motorized wings and LEDs (I highly recommend you do the same). I emailed Hero Toyz’ customer support and their manager told me my item had not yet shipped and I could add in the power functions bits. Those items were ordered, and my set shipped on December 8th. It was delivered on December 13th, but with NO power functions parts <:O
The CS manager was very helpful and quickly sent the parts I had paid for. They arrived several days later, but still with time to spare for Christmas. Mistakes like this happen from time to time, I do want to point out that Hero Toyz' CS was very polite and helpful throughout. Good customer service is uncommon, so bonus points to Hero Toyz for their excellent team. Normally I don't get worked up over delivery dates, but Christmas is the exception!
Onto the build itself. None of the parts are sorted. You will need to sort almost 6,000 pieces yourself. Buy some Solo cups and get a large table ready in advance. This process was ongoing and took many hours.
I worked on as much of the shuttle as I could while waiting for the power functions parts. The two motor units are integral to the craft's main structure and become buried with the hull early on. Because of that, I built out all three wings and other segmented areas first. The building techniques are novel and for the most part robust. I was impressed with how sturdy and heavy the wings are! They hold together well, despite their length and mass.
The cockpit, however, was a different story… Glue is your friend. Don't feel bad for using it on knockoffs! Lego use it on their own statues they display at their theme parks and stores, there's no harm in making a display piece solid. USE GLUE ON THE COCKPIT FOR YOUR SANITY! The connections that make up the interesting shaping of the cockpit and windscreen are very flimsy. I do not know if that is a result of the bricks this model uses, but they fall off whenever a passing sparrow farts. Glue fixes that issue and makes the product stronger and actually playable.
After my power functions parts arrived, the build was much more straight forward in terms of build order. I spent quite a bit of time lining up the gears as outlined in the instruction manual. It is very important you do this, otherwise the wings will be out of sync with one another or not open at all. I did not have either issue, so take my advice and take your time!
I have never routed power cables through a Lego model before so that was a very interesting process. I spent some time routing wires as close to the instructions as possible, which is a necessity. Please, please take the time to do this during your build! It will save you a massive headache later on, and keeps things neat and tidy. I also want to mention that the instructions are helpful in this regard, the picture quality is good and there are multiple angles of the cable routing which takes out most of the confusion.
After a week or so of sporadic building, the ship was ready to sail! These pictures really don't do the model justice. It is massive, and from a short distance away it is impossible to tell that it is made of Lego bricks. The shaping and texturing across the various surfaces is beautiful, and capture this iconic ship in exquisite detail. Bonus points for the removable landing gear, they look fantastic when the ship is landed.
All in all I would recommend this set to experienced builders. I would also recommend HeroToyz. I do not fault them for the manufacturer's error.
Let me know if you have any other questions! I have a video of the wings folding and unfolding I will try to upload later on.
Excellent product. No missing pieces, the electronics are good. The model itself is quite amazing in real life.
As usual the pieces are not organizez in bags (but that is not a real problem as log as they are all there).
Will buy again.
Super! Fast delivery!!!!
