Rated 5 out of 5 by Tweeter 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 LOTRNerd I love this
I actually just built this last night (its been sitting on my shelf for a few months) and it is super fun! a quick build, with lots of hinge pieces and key minifigures for a great price. i love Wyldstyles hooded hairpiece, as well as the movement the set allows. It really allows fora great play experience reenacting the scene. I like the look of the laser and it is a pretty great set compared to others in the same price/piece range. Definitely better than the Getaway Glider set (in my opinion) unless you wanted the horse in it. the small set is perfect for the short scene and I LOVE THE LEGO MOVIE

Rated 4 out of 5 by BigJohn Good Value
Good things about the set:
Wyldstyle minifig with hood up
Emmet minifig with straight face
3 total minifigs
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 TeenagefanofLego 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 Ravenclaw97 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.
>Minifigures are awesome, especially Emmet
>Piece variety, specifically the piece of resistance brick
>Well worth the money
>Wyldstyle's hairpiece would have been a nice addition
Great set, great pieces, great price. Just great. Buy it. Now. Do it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neptune412 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 5 out of 5 by TheBrickHelpers A Set Done Well
This set is is very nice and detailed. The Melting Room itself lacked detail and didn't really correspond with the Lego Movie, but you could see where it came from. This set looks great for display, but for play, not so much. Most of the greatness of this set come from the minifigure selection: Emmet, Wyldstyle, and the robot cop. It makes it fun to correspond to the movie, but...this part was never part of the actual melting scene of the movie. Overall, it is a great set to have with you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Larry2011 "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.
