Getting back into Lego, most of what I have are sets so this is my first foray back into free-building sets. So my review is in that regards, adult builder starting out into free building.
Lots of pieces, the presentation upon opening is really nice, color sorted into bags. The box is OK, wish it was thicker and less flexy but luckily the handles are in the box, not the lid. This seems like a really good gift though as all the pieces would compliment an existing Lego collection.
My main issue is you can't build much with the pieces if it's all you really have, you get tons of colors and types of pieces but few of each, usually two. You kinda need two of these to get enough to even start free building anything that doesn't look mismatched. Fine for a kid but for an adult that wants to build something a tad more uniform, not so much.
