    12 year old LOVES it!!

    My 12 year old son absolutely loves these projects. He will sit down and work on it for days until it’s finished; and is s proud of the accomplishment when he’s done. So much better than Video Games!!!

    READ THE INSTRUCTIONS THOROUGHLY!

    OK folks, pretty much ignore negative reviews. The fact is that this is a very complex model, takes several days (not hours) to assemble properly, and can be pretty frustrating.My grandparents used to call it “hot and bothered” when reaching a point where frustration becomes damaging. So, when you get stuck on a particularly confusing part of assembly – take a break and come back later.This projector is pretty much unforgiving in that instructions MUST be followed EXACTLY. Do that, be prepared to invest quite a bit of time – and the result is a real, functional work of art.Those who complain frankly haven’t built the model correctly – and it’s easy to make a mistake if your eyes aren’t glued to the manual – so simply take your time, don’t rush it, and you’ll be very happy with the results! The “cool” factor is simply off the charts and it’ll be a prized possession for years to come!

    Fun, organized

    I got this as a gift for my brother who is a mechanical engineer. He didn’t feel like it was beneath him, but had a lot of fun putting it together and it’s actually pretty cool when its all built!The pieces are well packaged and organized, and the instructions are clear. I would definitely gift this to someone again!

    great gift for families and friends

    Enjoyed assembling it with my partner yesterday! Every piece that comes with it has an extra, which is very thoughtful. I recommend this product to parents with young kids, couples and anyone who enjoys a little playtime.

    Lots of fun to build.

    So much fun!!! Pretty challenging but just what I was looking for. Took me about 8 hours to complete. The movie doesn’t exactly play smoothly but it’s part of the charm.

    Very Disappointed

    I would not recommend this for a teen. It was very difficult to put together and many of the pieces did not fit right. My teen does really difficult assemblies of other items but this was not a good choice.

    This was a fun project

    This was a fun project. It took us about 2 days to complete it. It was challenging without being frustrating. The only thing we haven’t figured is how to get the film to run and not appear upside down.

    Worst kit ever!

    The first kit I ordered, arrived with the film completely demolished and it was missing parts. The second box was worse! The holes for the pins were oversized, nothing stayed on, had to used adhesive to hold the stacks together. The moving parts were offline from each other, parts that were supposed to line up were not lining up like they were supposed to. Not sure if it was just this particular kit, or if it was this particular model design. This was my…6th ROKR kit and ive loved every single one of them and everything lined up and jived perfectly. This model was a disaster, model broke, now model is in the trash bin. It’s a shame. I was really looking forward to putting this kit together.

    Super Product!

    My wife gave me this as a Christmas present and I was a bit skeptical at first sight; seeing this product for the very first time and not really knowing anything about it made me intrepid about it in general. Once I opened it up and realized immediately that this was no easy project I steadfastly elated and excited to get to work on it right away. To my surprise and great elation, the project was extremely challenging and fun! I highly recommend this to anyone looking to get some enjoyment out of life free of clue — happy beginnings!

    This is the coolest thing I bought myself

    This was very relaxing to build. It took me about 5 hours and I’m a beginner. I posted my finished projector on Facebook and got so many comments. Everyone asked where I got it. I am planning on buying more. These are very cool and would make a cool gift. I did have a small piece to the door handle brake but was totally my fault.

    Very wobbly, but fun

    It was easy for my husband to assemble. It wobbles a bit when you crank the handle to play the movie. So, the picture isn’t very clear. I wish it had a base to hold it still.

    Loved this! Got this for my birthday and it took hours of hard work but it looks awesome and works great! The instructions are only pictures so attention to detail was key, but it was just what I wanted and will be a cool decor item.

    11 year old loved it

    My 11 year old loved it, he is always asking for something that would take a long time to put together, but didn’t want to pay for expensive Lego set. 4 stars only because when we finished it we couldn’t really see the video. I don’t know if maybe it was because we put the lens on incorrectly (which could very well be possible)

    Foggy picture

    One of the easier ones to assemble since the wood is a little thicker but the picture doesn’t show up crazy clear

    Fun for science-y puzzle nerds.

    My husband loved this Christmas gift. He enjoyed putting it together and loved the science aspect of it. The pieces are not overly delicate. Assembly was challenging, but not frustrating.
