LEGO® City Volcano Exploration Base

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Why did baseplates die? So I'm a geologist. Which meant I loved the fact that some volcano sets showed up, especially with women among the scientists. (We'll just ignore that the kind of stuff in the sets has no place in real volcanology...) However, even though I anticipated that the actual volcano would be the best part, I was dismayed to find that the bulk of it is big single molded pieces instead of actual bricks. Plus, instead of sitting on a baseplate, it was an awkward amalgamation of four quadrants, each itself already two separate base pieces. All of this was 'held together' by random colored pieces in the interior. I say 'held together' because in many cases, it was not together in the least. Because the big dumb molded volcano pieces are awkward to click into place, I tried to pick up the whole thing and press from beneath as well. Bad idea given the precarious internal manner of holding it together. More times than I cared to count, something inside popped out of place because of the amalgamation of 8 small plates as a base. I really wanted to love this volcano, but the silly design left a very bad taste in my mouth. January 3, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by a great new challange for my 6 year old My son saw this set in a Lego store and asked for it as a birthday gift. He was super excited when he opened it, and wanted to get started right away. He actually worked through the first 6 bags himself with no help (although he requires that I be present to keep him company ha) which took him about 4-5 hours. He didn't lose interest at that point, but seemed to be wearing down and asked for my help, so we finished the last few bags together (which was basically the components for the actual volcano). It says this set is for 8+, but he just turned 6 and did really well with it. He has played with it almost continually since we finished building it 4 days ago. The volcano has a lever which enables you to pop lava rocks up causing an "eruption" (this is probably my son's favorite feature). He also really likes the drone. I would consider this set to be more on the challenging side for him compared to his other smaller sets, but definitely manageable and lots of fun! August 23, 2016
