LEGO Architecture Great Wall of China review! 21041


hello everyone this is the Lego
architecture Great Wall of China set I’ve been looking forward to this since
the first pictures were released and I’m very happy that after all this weight
having built it it is a good finished product it feels good to own this it
felt good to put it together it didn’t actually use much in the way
of of tricky building techniques most of this is fairly straightforward
bricks on top of bricks plates on top of bricks tiles on top of plates but the
end result is definitely worth it there’s a lot of mass here and it looks
very good on display from a distance it stands out relative to other
architecture sets that are on a similar sized base it just is immediately
recognizable when you walk into a room and most interestingly and unexpectedly
they did design it to be put together with multiples so if you buy multiple of
this same set you can put them and to end to end to end which actually won’t
look too bad they did a very clever thing with the base plates here with the
ends being able to be pulled off after the model is complete you can take that
off do the same thing from down at this end it just removes the end so that
gives you a flush end right here then you can use any sort of piece underneath
here just to connect between two separate models it’s so simple and it
works really really well the build of this overall like I said is fairly
straightforward but it it’s heavy it’s very heavy compared to most of the
architecture real nano-scale builds like this because it is very
solid with regular bricks both just the regular rectangular ones and also a lot
of slopes the actual wall sections themselves are added in towards the end
you know you build the terrain and then add those parts in seal it off with the
caps of these towers or turrets and it’s pretty much done before you
know it but I said it’s it’s worth it in the end they use just some some hinge
pieces in some places the only thing that’s particularly interesting in terms
of the build was how this section right here was connected is actually connected
with a ball joint down beneath that is facing up one of those Mixel mixels
style ball joints just to allow it to fit at an angle but everything is very
snug there are some small gaps in there in the wall but hey in real life there
are much larger gaps in the wall I mean this is here depicting a particularly
picturesque well restored segments of the wall and it stands today it’s very
stylized with the colors you know everything is looking much more rich
than it does in real life and I think that’s great I think it just fits right
along with the the normal architecture Lego architecture style that is and I’m
glad that they did include two name plates for this that was very respectful
of them to do and in all I feel like I got probably a better value out of this
set that I have out of most of the architecture sets to date especially in
this size range the architecture line is very expensive by design because it can
be the price depart ratios are usually very sensible but because these sets
usually have a lot of very very small pieces the volume of stuff that you get
is usually rather low and they’re able to do that because they’re selling to
mostly adults they’re selling to mostly people who have more disposable income
than your average Lego consumer but here I just feel like I get like I said a
good mass of stuff when you feel this it’s something that cannot be conveyed
over the camera when you actually have this in your hands or you actually grab
it you pick it up you move it around you feel like you’ve got something there
it’s it’s a little bit hollow inside of the taller heel there but
not very much and you say it just has a real good presence on display this was
well worth the wait for me and for some folks this will definitely be worth
buying in multiples hope you enjoyed this look at this set thank you for
watching and I’ll talk to you soon you
