OK, about a year ago, I was a BIG fan of LEGO, but soon I grew out of it, and so our large tub of LEGO is just gathering dust. Kits like this one have been slowly getting me back into doing this type of thing. The point is, this kit ROCKS!!! It was very easy, and it produced a result that was quite cool! There was one error though, in instruction 4, the perspective of one of the parts in the "what you need for this step" list made it look like one that didn't exist, it was one of the dirt mounds that lie behind the large grave.
I loved how the skeleton, the coffin, and the top of one of the tombstones glowed in the dark, it means that when you turn off the lights at night, it provides a rather eerie and ghostly effect, it's quite cool! There were a few parts left over at the end, so I added those to the landscape, but overall the design is quite versatile, it can be rearranged into an endless number of positions, so when I can, I might experiment with the design a little bit more.
The kit is quite fragile in some places, there's this annoying little fern plant that keeps coming off, and the lid of the large grave isn't very durable, it and the tombstone seem determined to try and come off! While the kit may have it's faults, it was still quite fun to build, and I will be happy to build it again, and I hope you enjoy it as well!
