Great Value for Money, but too many hinge pieces
Comments about The LEGO Movie Melting Room (70801):
This set is a great item, to say the least. It comes with a lot of unique, and rare pieces, plus three minifigures for a $12.99 set, is sort of a rarity nowadays. Anyway, some of the designs are really clever. For example, the Brick of Resistance, that is "glued" to Emmett's back, in the movie, is cleverly placed using a hinge piece, that connects to his back. Wildstyle (I think I spelled her name right..) own unique design and clothes make for a very nice look. Also, the robot's unique hat is a great addition as well! However, every great set is not without some sins. When I was building it, I was confused by all of the hinge additions to the sides, and there was a lot of movements. Now, I understand the use of the hinge pieces for the laser is used to move it around and that's fine, but using the hinges for moving the little control console among other tiny things, just seems unnecessary. Let's get to the pro's and con's: Pro's: -Minifigure value -Unique pieces -Tiny chains that are used to hold Emmett in the chamber -No stickers Con's -Too many hinge pieces -An ambiguous (strange) feel to it (too small for it's size; it doesn't expand very well) -Doesn't hold any playable value, unless you have other Lego Movie sets. P.S If you any of you haven't seen the movie yet, I HIGHLY recommended it! It's a great story and it's much more than you will expect to be! -Tiny
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Too small, but in a good way.
I only bought this set for Wyldstyle. This set was so small and easy to build that I built it in the backseat driving home from the store. The set is so small you cant really play with it, so I did the same thing I did to the Trash Chomper: I modified it. Using almost all the parts from the set, and ones from my collection, I built a much bigger version of it that allows me to play with it. That is what I meant in "Too small, but in a good way." I mean, it's OK, but dont get too excited with it unless you're gong to do what I did.
Good set for the price

About Me Stay At Home Parent
I bought this set for my son for his 4th birthday, since it was the cheapest set that had the 2 main characters. The set is great and easy to put together, except for one thing: as far as I can tell, there is no way to connect the chains to Emmets hands. I've tried taking his hands off and attaching it between the sleeve and the hand, I've tried making his hand hold them, nothing works. On the box, the chains are just sort of in place behind his hand, nothing is actually holding them there. It's almost like there should be two pieces that connect through the shackle end, and his hand, so they can come together. Maybe I'm just doing something wrong??
Everything (in this set) is AWESOME
This set has EVERYTHING even a novice LEGO builder needs for The Lego Movie. 1st, It has 2 of the main characters: Emmet and Wyldstyle. 2nd, It shows one of the important part of the story. Last but not least 3rd, it's very impressive for a little LEGO set with a lot of detail. And, I recommend this item to everyone from novice, to advanced.
Easy Build, Great Set
The "Melting Room" set on the new lego move line is a great set and if you're even new to legos this is an easy build. Not to mention this set is the only one with a variant of Wild Style's hood pulled over her head, but all the characters come in great detail and quality. Although the laser has a few issues (such as it's VERY hard to aim it on Emmet himself) this is truly a great set. This also is one of the only chances to get a robot cop/worker as well as having a custom gun piece. i had a lot of fun building it although if you don't have any more sets already it's a bit boring to play with because of the lack of characters. they could have added a few more robots as well as possibly a President business figure because the robot was talking to him on the way out of the scene in the movie as well as good/bad cop because he is in the scene too. this was a great set overall though and i would recommend this as the first lego movie set you purchase. although i recommend buying this off this website because for what ever reason i always get better quality on things like the printing on the minifigure and the blocks with custom design.

Very fun. Just like the movie. Came very quickly. My son is very happy with the product.
An Awesome Small Set
The melting room is a very good set if you don't have a lot of money, but want the two main characters. I personally think that Emmet's face could look more like Emmet's face in the movie. This set is easy to make a scene and transport it from room to room, and keep it the same way. Some of the pieces don't come apart very easily. But this is a set that you can play with again and again, and do something different each time. I also like how you can take other sets and make a big battle with it.
"Get me that Piece of Resistance!"
I just got back from watching The LEGO® Movie, and here's my review of it; everything is awesome. I know. But anyways, enough of that and on to my review of The Melting Room. For a small set, you get the a good slice of the action pie. The laser, the thing that Emmet is chained to, and the rest of the set does look like it came straight out of the movie. I think my favourite part of the set is "The Piece of Resistance". Rather than being glued to Emmet's back, it is detachable meaning that it can be used for anything. Which. Is. Awesome. Sorry 'bout that. One thing I do think that could make this set better would be an optional hairpiece for Wyldstyle. I know, you're supposed to buy the other sets to get it, but what if you could only buy one set at a time? In conclusion, it is a great set and a must-have for any fan of The LEGO® Movie.

I bought this for my son, and he loves it! He saw the Lego movie and found this Lego "cool" to build. Emmet is his favorite!
Good things about the set: Wyldstyle minifig with hood up Emmet minifig with straight face 3 total minifigs sturdy construction Good value piece vs. price Biggest complaint about set: Melting ray gun has only 3 points of articulation, could have used at least 1 more. The hinge (articulation point 1) at the base in only 1 position (closed), allows gun to point at restraining chair. Only 1 hinge allows vertical positioning of weapon. The final point of articulation is at the top, and allows for some horizontal articulation. Not having seen the movie yet, I have heard that this set fits the scene from the movie well, which is a very nice tie-in, and I will be looking to see this set in the movie.
