Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rockefeller Center Rocks! This is my 13th Model of the Lego Architecture range. Have completed several American buildings of late and LOVE this one in terms of design. This wasn't the hardest of models to put together but the clever use of bricks gives this Model a superb 'layered' look. The use of different sized beige Lego tiles give the building a lovely shape and clever dimensions. A nice size model that goes nicely with my other buildings. The box and accompanying booklet are all the superb quality as you expect from Lego. The booklet contains detailed information on the building along with comprehensive build instructions. Worth every penny! Nice one Lego!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deco Good representation of a NYC landmark. Fits in well with the rest of the architecture series. Maybe not as big as some would like, but a nice addition to any collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awfully expensive for the size Fun little set that can be built in moments. But $40 seems steep for such a small set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rockefeller This was my first LEGO Architecture set, and is one of my favorites! It has cool LEGO techniques and is a classic set for anyone who has visited NYC (along with the Empire State Building), and I definitely recommend this set!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but small for the price It's very nice set but a bit to small for the price, and the detail in this set is good like the golden stud in the middle and the grey bricks in between the buildings representing the roads. overall a very nice set, get it when you have a chance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Neat Set This is a pretty neat build. It is a bit small, and not to mention expensive for its size. It, however is very accurate, and goes into the details, such as the golden sculpture, represented by a stud. This is a fun, short build. I finished it in about fifteen minutes, and it looks great on display.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for Building, But great for display I got this set for my birthday, and it was my second Architecture set I had gotten. It took me about 45 minutes to build, and it really looks nice. If you are wondering... DEFINETLY WORTH BUYING IF YOU ARE INTERESTED

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rockefeller Center from a Teen's Perspective Given the small number of pieces, they did capture the Art Deco style of the focal point and surrounding structures. This, I admire, being an fanatic for art and LEGO. Basically, you will want to let people look at it closely and notice the statue of Hermes tucked in the middle. My building experience was unfortunately cut-and-dry compared to, say, the Burj Khalifa or the Farnsworth house. I say this because the pieces are primarily tan. On the other hand, I believe the idea was for the viewer to admire the style of the building, just as the original architect planned in 1930. I will leave you with this: while the set itself is interesting, for display purposes, you will want to put away from any others you may or may not have because its mission is to pull its viewer into admiring all of the miniscule details put into every part of it. Happy building!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Live from Rockefeller Plaza! Simply amazing! One of the best Lego Architecture sets out there! I got it for Christmas, started and finished the day after! It is a very easy set to build, aside form the muiltitude of small towers, surrounding the one large tower. I found that the larger tower was easier to build, and cover with the flat, non-studded pieces. It took the least amount of time to build, and was more complex. The smaller towers were more time-consuming, as there are more of them. Overall, it is a great set, and does not take a lot of time to build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 30 Rock Looks just like the real thing. It fits in with the other architecture models, which makes it a great display piece. The only negative thing I could say about this refers to the entire architecture range, I wish the sizing was bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Project This was totally awesome to build and is a really great product. I had fun piecing it together. It was well worth the price but i think it should be a little bit bigger. But overall great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensational! About 4 years back, my family and I went to New York on holiday. We actually saw the buildings contributing to the Rockefeller Center and I have to say its is an exact replica of the real thing! I love the small details in Lego Architecture sets and the little ice rink in this with the statue is great. I would recommend this to anyone. Its a great set to add to the collection!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like most kids my age, I grew up playing with Legos. I love the Architecture series because it allows me to relive those great times I had when I was young. Architecture has always enamored me. When I first discovered last year that there was a Lego set of Falling Water available, I couldn't believe it. As a college student, it took a while to convince myself to part with the money needed to buy it, but I'm really happy that I bought it. I have the model sitting in my dorm room, and it looks beautiful. The architecture series excels because of its simplicity, and that's exactly what Falling Water, and now the Rockefeller Center, use to their benefit masterfully. After the fun experience I had with Falling Water, my girlfriend this year surprised me with the Rockefeller Center set for Christmas. We spent this afternoon building it, and had a great time. If a detailed model is what you're looking for, then I'll be honest and say these sets weren't design with you in mind. My favorite thing about these sets, especially this one in particular, is the attention it draws to the silhouette of the architecture, and how it interacts with its surrounding environment. In the case of Falling Water, I often find myself admiring how the building is integrated into the river that passes through it. Now with the Rockefeller Center, I get lost admiring the skyline of the Center. It's through the attention to the shapes of the buildings, rather than to the details which make each building unique, that Lego is able to accomplish this beautiful composition that subtly and effectively embodies the character of the real Rockefeller Center. Just like my Falling Water set, I plan on putting this model on my desk to stare at when I get tired of looking at my assignments. After having only had the model completed for 3 hours, I'm already impressed with how much I enjoy staring at the set, and admiring the simple beauties it has to offer. On a separate note, the set itself is easy to build. However, much like with the Falling Water set, you need to make sure that each piece you're placing is not only correct, but is being put where it belongs. Since the sets depend heavily on stacking thin pieces that are minimally different in dimensions, it's easy to make a mistake if you're careless. Undoing something can be rather tedious. Also, the model is surprisingly small, but its small size actually benefits it. It's almost like watching a movie on a small monitor, in that by compressing an image, it in turn makes that image look sharper. The small size of this set creates a positive clutter, that intensifies the interaction between the individual components that comprise the entire Center. I fear if the set were any bigger, it would accentuate the simplicity of the model beyond being simply refined, to just plain bland.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pass I love the Architecture Lego theme. The White House is still my favorite. This set could have been so much better! The real buildings have so many features and details that make them instantly recognizable, this set has none. I sent a picture of the completed set to a friend who lives in Manhattan. He had no idea what it was. The set does assemble quickly, and it was fun building a micro scale 2 x 3 city blocks... If you really want this set, I'm sure most everyone has these bricks of one color or another laying around.
