Comments about LEGO Architecture The Leaning Tower of Pisa (21015):
It's a bit odd to share that this is my favorite entry in the Architecture series - perhaps because many of my previous reviews have complained about the repetition necessary in other sets like Big Ben and the White House and (most egregiously) the Burj Khalifa. That said - even though much of this building is repetitive - I was blown away by the simple and creative way that the LEGO designers incorporated the tower's tilt without compromising any of the clean look of the base of the structure or its center of balance. This was a VERY impressive model from a simple planning and elegance standpoint, and it serves as a great reminder of how brilliant this team can be. Of course the packaging, manual, and accompanying history are classy as always. If this is your introduction to the Architecture series, I wholeheartedly encourage you - you're in for a treat unlike any other LEGO series.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comment on this review
This is my 10th Lego Architecture model in my collection. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is among my favorite models to build. The finished article is fantastic and a great size too. The attention to detail on this model is superb. Loved the way it went together especially the parts used to maintain the upright integrity of the Tower. I also love the very clever way parts are used to make the Tower lean to the perfect angle. The base is brilliant too, hiding all the parts hold the tower in position. The Box and booklet are the usual great quality from Lego. The Booklet has amazing facts on the Leaning Tower as well as comprehensive, easy to follow build instructions. Great job once again from Adam Reed Tucker, who designed the model. Superb range and keeping me thoroughly entertained! Now, onto my next project...... Farnsworth House - review coming soon!
the leaning tower of.....boringness
This is a good set but has several flaws. On the base, the hinge system easily breaks. Once you get past the base, it is very boring because you are just stacking the same pieces on top of each other of what seems like forever. Now, lets get to the good parts. Despite the fragile base, it is very clever of how they got it to lean. I am just surprised of how it is actually leaning! I recommend this set but I wouldn't put it on the top of my priority list unless, of course, you are collecting the whole architecture series.
High-quality and not too hard
A very pretty and unique end result and a high-quality product. The build was pretty easy although quite repetitive. The base which created the lean was interesting to make but did tend to come apart quite often and makes it difficult to move the tower to re-position or dust. The information in the booklet was really interesting and overall it's a very nice addition to the architecture range - although not as good as some of the other Lego architecture range.
it is an easy build but fun, and most of all I was surprised by the final result, a very cute "object" which makes up for a fantastic display, not only in an Italian home like mine!

A simple and stylised tower
This is a nice interpretation of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The build was enjoyable and quite simple. Doesn't take very long. However, as you can imagine due to the symmetry, the build does get repetitive and you will be doing the same motions over and over again. But if you are able to reach your zen through doing so, it's great. If you're after something challenging, this isn't for you. I did find the lean design interesting, being well constructed and serves the purpose of leaning the tower well. The base and leaning mechanism looks stylised and subtle, so matches the general feel of the series. I'm not sure about most people, but I find the architecture series - particularly the cheaper sets - to be purely for display purposes, which is perfectly fine for me. There's no interactivity after the build has been completed (i.e. can't remove a roof etc). Not that this is a bad thing, but there's no playability to it. So definitely don't get it if you're after something to play with. The instruction manual is nicely designed, with facts littered throughout. I always enjoy little trivia facts, so you may find interest in them as well - unless of course you already know everything there is to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. In summary, it's a nice interpretation of an architectural landmark. Simple to build and is great for display. However, that's it. I do recommend it based on the above, but make sure you get it for the right reasons. You will enjoy it if you do.

Great Entry to Architecture Series
This was the first set I have bought for years and I'm more than happy with it. The quality packaging, booklet and presentation are a nice touch. The build is not too challenging but has some interesting features, especially how the designer built in the lean. Price per brick may be a little high but as a package it is good value for those without the time or inclination to go brick hunting online.

Okay, all right, fine....
Since I'm a big fan of Lego projects that exceed 2000 pieces, at times I have a bit of a problem getting too excited about some of these small architectural sets. With that said, this is probably the best of the small scale buildings offered by Lego. The build is more challenging and different than that you get with some of the other smaller arch offerings that consist primarily of stacking rectangular bricks on top of one another. The finished tower is also much taller than most of the other arch series sets. I also commend the designer for coming up with a clever way/built to get the tower to lean. All in all, it's a good way to pass an hour or two of time until Lego rolls out a large scale Sydney Opera house or a Mini Cooper.

An Okay Build
from Ann Arbor
I just finished the set and I must say it was a bigger challenge than anticipated. While the set looks simple on the box, there are many small pieces that give this a fun level of detail. I only gave this set a 4:5 because once the base is complete, building the body of the tower gets a little monotonous after awhile. Plus, with all of the pieces being the same color, it's easy to overlook some details and make simple mistakes. While not as complicated as the Imperial Hotel or Falling Water, it is more challenging than the basic Empire State Building and Willis/Sears Tower sets. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a nice addition to the Architecture series, though, as it shows off a style that has not been featured before in the theme. Overall, I would recommend this to avid collectors and novice builders alike.

I wanted this model as soon as I saw it so got it yesterday from the lego store. It's a great model taller than in expected. It has limited play value but will look great with the other models of the architecture series if you collect them like me.
