If you don't have a personal space with a high ceiling, don't get the set. It's friggin HUGE. The largest space I own height-wise is the Dragon's Lair, and even that wasn't high enough. I'll have to play with some of my other spaces later.
The base of the set, and two carp were as high as I could go.
Here's the last two pieces that go on top.
It does however come with a miniature version of the set. No assembly required.
It was only 1.49 for the whole thing, so I wasn't too disappointed.
On a side note, I'm loving my carp streamer LMO, which was only 1.99.
