Product Description

Get up close to Big Ben! The clock was first started on May 31st 1859, and Big Ben's first chime rang from the 96-meter Elizabeth Tower on July 11th of the same year. This over 23 inch (60 centimeter) high LEGO® interpretation of the iconic structure is a tribute to its engineering and architecture. It features a detailed facade with statues, shields and windows, and a clock tower with 4 adjustable clock dials and a removable roof allowing access to the belfry, plus buildable exterior elements including a sidewalk, lawn and a tree depicting the building's location. This model makes a great display piece for the home or office.

The LEGO Creator Big Ben (10253) Features:

  • Big Ben features a detailed section of the Westminster Palace and the adjoining Elizabeth Tower, 4 detailed clock dials with movable hour and minutes hands, and a sidewalk, tree and grass area depicting the building's location.

  • Remove the top of the tower to access the Big Ben bell

  • Special elements include 4 printed clock faces

  • Rare elements include ski poles, flowers and corner plates in molded gold color, and tinted-translucent elements

  • Big Ben measures over 23 inch (60 centimeter) high, 17 inch (44 centimeter) wide and 7 inch (20 centimeter) deep.

I felt I had to include the repetitive part in my title. A previous review said this model has "almost no repetition" which is a completely false statement. If anything, like the tower bridge, this model is extremely repetitive, to the point where I was batch building the same assets over and over (see pics) However, that's not a bad thing, with a little patience it's totally worth it for the end result. I don't think I own a more detailed, beautiful model. If I step back a couple of meters it almost doesn't look like it's Lego. It's comprised mainly of smaller pieces, so expect a fiddly, challenging build, but a rewarding one.

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.

Best Lego model yet!

By Wumpus27

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Creator Big Ben (10253):

This really is a superb set, not quite finished it yet as due to having two younger kids I have to slot in building time over many days but the gradual build is actually more satisfying. There's a lot here for the money so for me it's excellent value too. Yes, there is a fair bit of repetition as some have mentioned but that's the nature of the building and it looks so good as you complete each level that it doesn't matter. Since getting the Lego bug again as an adult with the Red 5 X Wing 2 years ago I've built a fair few of the larger sets and this is by far the most impressive as well as providing a challenging but enjoyable build. Highly recommended!

Brilliant

Comments about LEGO Creator Big Ben (10253):

This set is simply brilliant. As soon as I saw it was being released I was thrilled! I bought this the day it became avalible to VIP. Its such a lovely set when completed and looks great on display. It's very detailed in so many ways from the clock face to even the small details like the little tree. It's a great touch to be able to turn the clock hands from a twist behind the building. The box of this product is also outstanding and is a wonderful piece of art. I haven't yet bought tower bridge, but now I'm tempted after seeing how amazing Big Ben is in eye sight. I think anyone would love this set especially new builders as its a name we all know.. Big Ben! Hopefully Lego will design a London Eye to go with it!

Best Christmas Present

Comments about LEGO Creator Big Ben (10253):

My husband bought this for me for Christmas. After building the Tower Bridge a few years earlier, I was so excited to unwrap this present. Was not disappointed one bit! If it wasn't Christmas break and spending time with the family, I probably could have finished a day sooner.

    Comments about LEGO Creator Big Ben (10253):

    My son has had Lego products since he was a very young boy. Last year he built the 'Creator series' Tower Bridge and requested the Big Ben product for his birthday this year.
    Lego is a high quality product that uses , brain , dexterity and patience to build these more complex Creator series items. The end product is beautiful and an art object in its own right which can be displayed and admired, or broken down and built again. Perfect for all ages from 10 to retirees.

    Comments about LEGO Creator Big Ben (10253):

    My son who is English by birth moved to USA 11 years ago. He has had lego since he was a very young shild. Last year he built the Lego Creator Tower Bridge. I bought this item ' Big Ben for his Birthday at his request and he loves it. It is a quality product, takes wit and patience to build and then you have a wonderful work of art to display, knowing it will last forever. Or you can take apart and rebuild again. Lego is timeless for any age. I highly recommend.

    Quick to build

    By rachelcann165

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about LEGO Creator Big Ben (10253):

    I built this model today and was surprised by how quick it was to build it. I did find there are a lot of small bricks that have to be fitted into some quite small gaps so this would not be suitable for people who struggle with using only their thumb and index finger. I like the detail that is in the model considering the size of it and would give one to a friend if it wasn't a retired product.

    First LEGO® Architecture

    By skippyinspace

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about LEGO Creator Big Ben (10253):

    First Architecture kit build, have always been a bit ware as Im one of those that more bricks the better. But as it was on my Christmas list it appeared and got built. Like the book and the build was easy but the outcome looks great. Wife thinks its a bit blocky but being from an era of blocky builds it looks great to me. Cant wait to get the rest. Question is death star or 10+ Architecture kits...

    Great value for money

    Comments about LEGO Creator Big Ben (10253):

    For over 4,000 pieces this set was excellent value for money. The build itself was a little bit fiddley and slightly repetitive. Overall it was a fun build and the finished product was well worth it. The detail is great.
