$200 is so steep. It is bigger and more detailed than I thought it was from the other pictures, but that price tag is still too high. It should at least come with the motor!

No wonder for this price, it is 2670 pieces. More pieces than I thought based on the calendar image.

I agree that it should come with the motor for this price.

There is no nothing besides getting screwed by LEGO's greed like always.

And someone said the price would be $200, but by Price is Right rules you went over!

The thing that bothers me the most about the set is the fabric pieces that are used on the top. They stand out way too much.

What bugs me is for $200 it has about 150 stickers.

Just finished watching the "speed build" review on YouTube. The build is amazing and the set is looking great. What impressed me the most was the complexity of the underneath mechanism which I don't think it would ever come to my mind. Yes, the set carries stickers and fabrics, but that are not issues anymore. This set must definitely be in my to-buy-list, hands down. Hope to see 3X VIP coming back.
