Rated 5 out of 5 by Halcut Everything is awesome about MetalBeard
Fantastic steampunk robot pirate mech. Stable construction. It's fun just to look at it. The details really entertain. What robot pirate would be complete without binoculars, a pistol, an enormous sword, a wooden leg constructed of a barrel and a cannonball, not to mention a ship captain's wheel, a full-size shark, a treasure chest, two banners and a metal parrot perched on top? Also love the evil MicroManager. The joke's not lost on me. Great sense of humor in this set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gems77 A must for any Lego movie fan
My 5 year old son is a huge fan of The Lego Movie so when he saw this Lego set he was so excited. He was able to build it with minimal help even though it was designed for older children. He loves playing with it. Brilliant purchase and great value for money as they are a good size once built. My son spends hours playing with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by User12545 Super Fun to Customize to make Movie-Accurate!!
Finally we have a set with the actual-size Metalbeard!! He looks great on display! I found that he was pretty easy to stand up; some leg positions made him fall but that's hard to avoid. Looks great in a classic leg stance though!! Fun to build.
Sure it isn't movie-accurate exactly, but that's why I bought it--it's super fun to customize him yourself to the movie version!! You can pull up a picture of the movie Metalbeard online and compare the two, adding and removing bricks as needed. Certainly a different Lego building experience, and fun to see how many changes you can make. In the end, my own model looks pretty much exactly like the movie model!!
Despite its minor flaws this set is a must-have for all Lego Movie lovers. Many have said that after buying this set and being disappointed they won't buy any other sets in the movie line. Trust me, not all are like this!! Benny's Spaceship is nearly brick-for-brick accurate, for anyone who wants an accurate set!!
Do not be turned away from the other wonderful sets in the movie line!! With a few tweaks, this set is a fantastic buy and a super fun, enjoyable set!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VariousBones ARRRRRRRRRRR!
My 7 year old son received this set for Christmas and he asked me to help him assemble it so I decided that I would review it as well. It came together in just about an hour and the instructions were very easy to follow. My son assembled the micro manager by himself with minimal help from me and it looks great. It is also very sturdy and stands up well on its own. I assembled the Metalbeard figure (at my son's insistence) because this part of the build was much more intricate, with smaller pieces and tiny details. It came together much easier than I thought it would, taking about a half hour to complete, and all of the elements fit and hold together very well. The cannons even shoot! It has been some time since I've encountered a set with cannons and once upon a time, Lego made non-firing cannons (probably for safety reasons). It is good to see that they've since rescinded that decision. My only complaint is that the treasure chest in his chest does not stay closed very well. The sausage and the bone within could potentially fall out, but that is my only complaint. Despite the peg leg, the figure stands well on its own and is quite posable. It looks amazing, and with the mini figures included, the price seems about right. A great representation of the character from the movie and a great addition to the line of sets from the movie. Enjoy, and happy building!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MattFrye It takes a while to build, but the instruction book is very precise and the overall detail the creators added to the product were outstanding. Lots of compliments from friends on how far LEGO has come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by zenorwhat For the display not to play with
This is a beautiful set. Very detailed, almost exactly mirroring the characters in the movie. Certainly a good value if .. you are a collector and want to display them not to play with it. Especially the details from Metal Beard are falling down with every move so it makes the playtime diffficult. But other than this this is a great set.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ninja2800 OK set, VERY fragile
This set looked amazing as I saw it, but I was sadly disappointed. Metalbeard is VERY fragile even while building. If you so much as squeeze too much you'll break it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TeenagefanofLego This was my first Lego Movie Set.
After weeks of looking at this set in the catalog, my mom surprised me by taking me to Legoland California. I was looking at the Lego store when my mom asked me if I wanted something. I went into the store and got the set. I washed my hands before I built it. PROS: METALBEARD!! a helpless citizen, a skeletron, and an awesome Micro Manager. CONS: … Ummmm…. I honestly can come up with any! I would recommend this to someone else.
