The Colosseum is one of my favorite pieces of ancient architecture and this is a beautiful piece that I hope to see in person some day at a LEGO store. But I have to say that this just doesn't look fun to build. There's so much repetition due to the nature of the original structure. Thankfully, the dilapidated state would add some variation to what looks to be a tedious undertaking.

That really is nice, if I had the money I'd get this. This looks like a really fun build.

Impressive without a doubt. It would be more impressive if it was the colosseum during its rise, with gladiators and everything.
