Lego yet again have not finished the model off for all around display which is a crying shame.No working clock or bell, back of building not complete.The green plates look like sick colour. Yet good value for money, very good for the bit count.Also the detail on the front is realy nice. Please look at my photos thats 3 kits and a weeks work. fully litup even the top of the tower.With 4 working clocks. Tip a pocket watchs fits nicely.You will have great fun copying me. I might do the whole of the houses of parliment some day. Any helpers?

One of my favorite things about the larger kits is the interesting bits and the creativity involved in creating them, that you get to see when putting the kit together. The Ghostbusters Firehouse, for example, was roughly comparable in scope, and a ton of fun. There is always going to be some repetition in the larger kits, but usually not so much as to spoil the experience. I felt, with the Big Ben kit, like I was working in a lego-building factory. I would open a bag, see the parts inside, and immediately start to build the panels for the clock tower sides, without even needing the instructions, because so much of it was building the same side panels. The rest of the building offered a slight variation, but not by much. Looking at it, you know there will be some repetition, but out of an entire closet of kits, this is the very first time I have ever been putting together a lego set and had to take a break because I was too bored to go on. That said, it was still a nice looking structure when complete, and I enjoy the mechanic of turning the clock a bit.

          Worth the price compared to the larger Lego set sold in the Lego catalog.

          Comments about LEGO Architecture Big Ben (21013):

          I thoroughly enjoyed building this set, and overall found it easy to construct. Definitely a great piece for anybody who prefers models to 'play sets' if you will. Quite small but I wouldn't say overpriced because there is quite a few pieces, although they are all relatively small and wouldn't be suitable for younger children

          We are a lego family and I LOVE that they make products that do not only cater to younger children but to the "older" ones as well. I love to travel, so now I can enjoy playing with legos as I reminise on my travels. I only wish it was bigger because even when i finish, i want to build the whole city:)

          Comments about LEGO Architecture Big Ben (21013):

          This was a fantastic build, which I enjoyed more than the tower bridge as it wasn't monotonous. As far as price goes, you really can't beat this set and the Tower Bridge, and they look great displayed together.

          Boring build but great set!

          By PaprikaElf

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about LEGO Architecture Big Ben (21013):

          I already had the Tower Bridge Creator set (which probably ranks as one of my favorite sets of all time) when I heard about this set. I watched the video with the designer and I was intrigued. I also liked the scale of it much more than the actual Lego Architecture series one (which while adequate and recognizable can not show the detail of Westminister Palace). This set looks great. The build was very repetitive. No part of it was particularly challenging, but when it is done, it does look quite impressive. It is also very tall - taller than you would expect. If you have the Tower Bridge, it works very well with it (and I hope that they do some more London landmarks in the Expert Creator series in the future). My only gripe is that I wish there were some more extras of the little gold crosses that line the roof. They are extremely fragile and my cats have already broken a few.

            A great display piece, if you have the space!

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about LEGO Architecture Big Ben (21013):

            This Lego set comes in about 20 plastic bags split into 7 assembly steps. I would recommend only opening each set of bags as you require them, because even limiting yourself to what you need, it is easy to overwhelm yourself with pieces. It makes use of a large number of 1x1 and 1x2 plates and bricks of varying colours, and though some sections are repeated and can be built in parallel, there is enough unique construction to make assembly take some time; even with sorting each set of bags to finish it as quickly as possible, it still took 12 hours to finish (Not counting breaks for the occasional cup of tea. Even if you are not British, I suggest having several tea breaks to create the right atmosphere!). The finished model is incredibly accurate compared to the actual building - The proportions of the clock tower are slightly off but that's unavoidable because of the brick dimensions and only noticeable when placed next to a photograph. The clock function is nice, but it's a pity there's no way to make the hour hand run independently from the minute hand. A note for people who like to do their own thing with Lego - There are blanked out areas on the back face where the rest of the Houses of Parliament would connect. I checked how big this would be, and it is almost exactly the same area as a single bed takes up!
