This is a nice model to build and looks ok once complete I feel that it needed a little bit of a polish up though the steering wheel and gear lever both to big, there no sun visors rear view mirror or wipers but seems there was meant to be, the bonnet sits proud and roof not finished off on the corners, the mini badges should not be stickers, spear wheel dose not match the other 4 wheels and last of all it has a black exhaust not silver. I know it seems a lot and bit picky but this is an expert model and has a steep price to go with it I felt that it was easy to build and did not take to long. Over all this is not much harder than most of the standard Lego creator sets that iv built.

A Beautiful Collector's Set

By Tinybrickreviews

from Murrieta

Comments about LEGO Creator Ex MINI Cooper Building Set 10242:

I'm not one to repeat what others have already said about a set, but this is absolutely amazing! It's sleek, and built like you wouldn't expect it either. Let me explain. When I was on bag number 3 and I still had the hood, headlights, doors, windows, and tires still left to do, I thought "there's no way it's going to turn out decent". Boy, was I wrong! It came together quite nicely. The picnic basket and accessories is a very nice touch, something I wish LEGO had done with the Camper Van. There are two things that I have a problem with, one major, and one minor. The minor one is that the engine isn't as detailed as the description says. Now, I am sadly not the owner of a 1999 green Mini Cooper, but after having the expertly detailed VW Camper Bus's engine, it seems like a step backwards. And the color choice is strange. Why red? Again, I'm not a MINI expert, but it seems like such an odd choice as to why it is that color. The biggest problem with the engine is that it's just so....simple. There's nothing about it that really wow's me. It's just a few bricks put in a thin rectangle and stuffed under the hood. Maybe I'm looking too much into this, but to me, at least, it's a little underwhelming. Now for the major problem I have with this set: the roof. The roof is so flimsy and delicate that it really takes away from the beauty of the set overall. Only two open studs hold the roof to the car so it can just fall off whenever it feels like it. Also, the windshield isn't very sturdy so you have to tilt it awkwardly if you want the roof to line up with it. All in all, it was just so disappointing to see this lovely set be sidelined by something as simple as the roof! If it was better, this set would be 5 bricks, but sadly I just can't give it a perfect score. Enough blabbering from me, here are the pro's and con's. Pro's: -overall design -seats -picnic basket and accessories -door handles (great idea using the hockey skates as door handles. Genius!) -stick shift and brake handle (great attention to detail) -tire and hubcap design Con's -roof -engine design -stickers (this is perhaps another of the biggest gripes I have with the set. I mean WHY would you include stickers in such a nice set?!) -the steering wheel is basically touching the driver side seat, making that par at least seem a little unrealistic. -the spare tire is a little hard to get to but nothing to cry over. In conclusion, don't let the con's outweigh the pro's for this one. The MINI is a fantastic set and it would be perfect in anyone's collection!

Sooper Dooper Mini Cooper

By Santiago

from Philadelphia

Comments about LEGO Creator Ex MINI Cooper Building Set 10242:

I built this about 2 years ago and it was really fun to build. Lego did a really good job at making it look really realistic. I like how they added the picnic basket and blanket. The trunk of the car is oddly spacious. I know that people who are buying a Lego set don't really care if the trunk is spacious but I still think it is pretty neat how Lego was able to make it so big and lifelike without compromising any structural stability. I didn't notice this at first, but after reading some of the other reviews I did notice that the roof is misaligned with the windshield. Not a big deal but the roof comes off almost too easily. Overall, it was definitely a good purchase and I am very happy with how it turned out.

Comments about LEGO Creator Ex MINI Cooper Building Set 10242:

A very satisfying model to build. Loved the fact that it had all the minutest details: from the door handles to the air conditioner vents. Building this model was the perfect way to de-stress after a long day.

Comments about LEGO Creator Ex MINI Cooper Building Set 10242:

This is a well made car. It feels substantial when you pick it up. Not flimsy. Rides nice on the soft tires. It was a fun thing to build.

Mini Car, Big Fun

By AJK7

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Creator Ex MINI Cooper Building Set 10242:

I loved LEGOs as a kid and recently discovered the "Creator" theme for older individuals. I decided to start with this Mini Cooper to see if I enjoyed it still and because I like the car. Needless to say I was extremely impressed and had a blast putting it together. The details for the car are unmatched and made the experience that much more enjoyable. I have seen some reviews saying that received the wrong windshield, but fortunately I did not run into such problems. I do not believe the build was particularly challenging, but does take some time and I did have to go back a couple times due to a few overlooked pieces. I am definitely going to be starting a new hobby building these advanced models and hope to work my way up to larger models such as the Tower Bridge and Big Ben.

Much Mini Love

By MiniShagz

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Creator Ex MINI Cooper Building Set 10242:

As an owner of a 2006 British Racing Green MINI Cooper S with a white roof and white bonnet stripes, I, of course, had to own this model. This is a brilliant kit and was fun to assemble. Features such as the picnic basket and blanket and the inclusion of a full size spare tire (even my car doesn't have that) make this model really special. The build itself was not overly difficult, but does take a long time, given the large number of pieces. Younger builders with shorter attention spans might be put off by the amount of time it takes to build. Also, this isn't a model for playing, but rather more of a display model, in my opinion. Again, younger builders might not appreciate this so much. If you love Minis (or MINIs) you have to get this model. It is a wonderful tribute to a really cool car.

Lovely Little Mini

By ThomasNWyndham

from Brisbane

Comments about LEGO Creator Ex MINI Cooper Building Set 10242:

I was given this as a present from my cousin, and I was so trilled to get it! I love English cars, and the Mini is very much a classic icon of British motoring.

First thing first, I have always said if I owned a Mini, it would have to be British Racing Green, with a white roof, and white stripes, and so this is a big tick to start with. Building the set was quite enjoyable, and the instructions were very clear. The exterior shape looked great, and the interior dash, and seats I thought were very cute details. It made a great addition to my display cabinet.

Then a couple of months later, I actually bought a 1999 Rover Mini Mk. VII, the very same model as the set. Same British Racing Green, same white roof and stripes, same interior colours, same extra fog lights. The only differences are minor, the mirror colours and alloy wheels for example, but great all the same. Both of my Minis look great, and having the same car in my garage as on my display cabinet, I can defiantly say this model is a good and accurate LEGO version of the real thing. To any motoring enthusiast, I'd defiantly recommend this set!

Details lacking in quality control.

By nbrowser

from Abbotsford BC

Comments about LEGO Creator Ex MINI Cooper Building Set 10242:

I picked up this kit thinking it'd be a great addition to the F40 and VW T1. From the unpack I noticed the bag containing the wheels tires and other parts was missing for one and I had a doubling of one bag containing the windshield. And yes this model has the overlap issue (waiting on replacement parts from Denmark but they've been in warehouse for a week now according to Order Status). So as of right now it's incomplete, waiting on parts though but I might have to just go exchange it at the store partially built. I just have to say some QC is missing with this kit and yes it was in the newer box.
