Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bridge too far? Lego has captured the skyline of San Francisco really well in this model - the steep street and cable cars, Alcatraz and the Trans-america pyramid building are especially good. I'm not so sure about the Golden Gate bridge though; I understand the designer has tried to present a 3 dimensional view of the bridge two dimensionally by using some forced perspective, and it works to a degree from an angle (but obviously not face on when it looks odd). I guess had the bridge been a conventional design (like Tower bridge in the London skyline) the model have been even longer (to be realistic), but then it would have been out of kilter with other sets in the skyline series. Nonetheless, a very aesthetic looking model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very impressive and captured beauty of SF It’s a quick and easy build, just like the other architecture sets. The end result is stunning for the city. I think the designer did as good of a job as he/she can for the Golden Gate Bridge considering the limited space and pieces. With that said, I hated the fact the instruction manual has black background. With the reflection of the light above, it was a nightmare to follow the instruction with black, brown and dark green pieces. There is a reason why all the books use white background and black letters! One design criticism: the red hook between two bridge towers are not centered. That bothers me quite bit! It is a easy fix. Not sure if it is by design or was over looked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun My sister gave me this set as a birthday present, she knows I love legos. At first I thought this was going to be easy but it was kind of challenging, especially the Golden Gate Bridge. It was really fun building it and really enjoyed it. In total it took me more than two hours to finish it but I didn’t do it in one sitting

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best representations Having recently rebuilt some of my older Architecture skylines, particularly thinking of Venice, when I got this new set, I was really really impressed by the depth of the representations. I agree with another reviewer that it is not simply buildings all separate, but there has been an effort made to group the buildings and give the skyline less of a '2d' look. I particularly love the mini coloured houses, they are really cute. My favourite of the skyline series so far......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best city skyline so far! This set is a fun build, but what most impresses me is how good it looks once assembled. Sitting it next to my New York City skyline really puts that set to shame! While the NYC set has arguably more iconic buildings and is a great build, its layout of buildings set in a row looks staid and boring next to this dynamic, multi-layered set. The way they've managed to create an impression of perspective and scale with the differing heights of the Golden Gate Bridge towers is really impressive. Overall, a very dynamic and attractive-looking finished product. More like this, please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A step up for the Architecture Series The Architecture Series has really stepped up their game with this latest edition. With this set it really does look much more like the city skyline with the placement of buildings, the landscape, etc. instead of some random buildings just plopped down on a Lego slab. I really like this new direction and I'm excited to see what else is to come if they keep up this new trend. I really enjoyed building this set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highlight of My Skyline Collection! I own many of the Lego Architecture Skyline sets and this is my all-time favourite! The build is very different from the others but easily the most enjoyable so far, with some novel building techniques and a sprinkling of those 'aha' moments that Lego designers love to throw in to bring a smile to your face! The clever use of perspective on the Golden Gate to bring it to life is just inspired!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This product is really good but the Golden Gate Bridge is a bit of a challenge but overall it looks really good

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Finally!.... wait, salesforce tower? Really? I’ve been waiting for an SF set forever, and they finally make one, with the atrocity that is saleforce tower. As far as LEGO sets go, this is an atrocity. A classic SF set would have been amazing. LEGO did a dissurvjce to actual SF residents by including this advertisement of a set and a company that most SF residents despise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best skyline set yet! This set is the best skyline yet... capturing not just specific structures, but the whole city's feel and aesthetic. It's stunning, and a fun build. The only downside is it's so detailed, it makes some of the earlier skyline sets-- ie. New York (which needed a bridge in there)-- look plain by comparison! Dear LEGO: Please add a Brooklyn Bridge set to the Architecture or Creator Expert lines. It would be a huge hit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great couples activity My fiancé and I built this set and we had a blast! We especially loved the Salesforce tower - it always peeks through the fog here in SF! It sits on our dresser to always remind us of our favorite places in our city.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love lego architecture The Lego Architecture line does not disappoint in any way, this is my 11th set in the Line and I always find myself buying more, this set does what every other Lego Architecture skyline does, it perfectly represents landmarks and historical sites from a certain city and makes them look good next to each other. Just hinting Lego, I would love to see a set of the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best in the Skylines series This was the set that kicked off my collection of the Skylines; I absolutely love it! So much great detail all packed in neatly that reflect such an iconic city like San Francisco. Alcatraz under the Golden Gate Bridge is such a great detail. The Painted Ladies are also fantastic, and I love the little trolley cars on the street behind them. Overall, great detail packed into this truly one-of-a-kind Architecture skyline set.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a huge fan I received this as a gift. I have completed 4 other architecture sets and the Great Wall. This one seems so bland to me. Nothing really stands out. When people see my display their eyes immediately go to the other skylines and comments on the detail. SF is lacking love from viewers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from San Francisco a good model to build and looks great. Nice detail of my favorite city to visit. I think using numbered bags for parts and number sections in instructions makes for a better build. Glad to see this function. Hope all future architecture sets this way.
