Customer Reviews of This Build
This model is coming in hot at a rating of 4.7 out of 5 in Amazon and 4.4 out of 5 on Lego. This is a fantastic build for anyone interested in Lego or interested in Rome. It feels like an epid journey, it is well supported and full of surprises. The detail of this model is incredible an the only flaw which cannot be helped is that it can be quite repetitive.
Whether your objective is starting something epic or exploring your creative building abilities this is the model of choice. It is enormous, it is challenging and it looks outstanding. As a Lego fan this expresses everything that I value in Lego. I love builds that are true art forms, that express character and familiarity. The Colosseum is full of history and Lego have captures the ruins, the decay and the grandiose vision of what the Colosseum hosted in history and its significance to the Italian history. This is made to be displayed, it is made to be talked about and it is meant to be a statement of exaggerated proportions. It is outrageously incredible.
Keep on Building
