Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value for Money, but too many hinge pieces 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a small set Design is stable and looks good. There isn't to much, but it's simple. Just one thing- hard to connect Emmets hands to the chains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Set I gave this set 5 stars because... 1) It has 3 awesome new Minifigures! Emmet, Wyldstyle, and a Robo-SWAT. They are all very detailed and Emmet even comes with a double-sided face! 2) The set it's self is great. It's pretty convenient for display and awesome for play ability. You can move the laser up and down and angle it in whatever way you wish to. My favorite part is the chair where you can chain up Emmet (or any other LEGO Minifigure). 3) You also build a little control panel where the Robo-SWAT Minifigure controls the laser and tries to take a peice of the Brick of Resistance. Next to that is an axe and handcuffs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Set, Big Movie, All Fun. The LEGO® Movie excited me when I saw the first official trailer. Then I saw the sets. Then the other trailers. Needless to say, I'm super excited, and when a set this small delivers such a huge impact, you know everything is going to be awesome. Anyway, on to the set! First, the piece-to-price ratio is amazing, 122 pieces for $12.99, a great deal. Also, the variety of pieces is awesome. The minifigures are another treat, and although the build is quick, it's entertaining and solid. PROS: >Minifigures are awesome, especially Emmet >Piece variety, specifically the piece of resistance brick >Fun build >Well worth the money CONS: >Wyldstyle's hairpiece would have been a nice addition OVERALL: Great set, great pieces, great price. Just great. Buy it. Now. Do it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great $13 set! I was honestly very impressed with this set. Especially when it only rang up $12.99. This set comes with 3 excellent and highly detailed minifigures; Emmet, Wyldstyle, and a Robo-SWAT. Emmet is the main character in the upcoming LEGO Movie. He has a brand new hair piece with a little cowl in the back. He has a construction worker outfit and on his back is the Piece of Resistance. Wyldstyle is my favorite of the set. She comes with a really cool hood made of a rubber-ish plastic. This is the only set where she comes with the hood. She has printing on her left arm, back, front, and legs. She is definitely the most detailed of the 3. And Robo-SWAT is a fairly cool figure, he is detailed but not as good as the other 2 figures. The set itself is cool. It has a really cool rotating table where you can chain up Emmet so the laser can try to take the Piece of Resistance off of his back. It also comes with an axe and handcuffs. Minifigures: Emmet 9/10 Wyldstyle 10/10 Robo-SWAT 7/10 Set: 8.5/10 Final Verdict: 9/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So excited about this Lego Movie Set. This set is a great deal at a great price. You get a lot of good mini figures especially Emmet. You get new pieces that are in a new form. Can't wait to see how these set fits into the Lego Movie coming out in February. Looking forward to checking out some more cool Lego Move sets. I
