Impressive. It is bigger than I thought. For a display piece, it is stunning.

Re: [REVIEW] 7052 -- UFO Abduction

I actually had this set, but returned when I decided I didn't really like the "Alien" sets. Of course if I can get it at a good discount I might pick it up again. However, since I got the Earth Defense HQ with this ADU soldier in it, I don't NEED to pick this up. I'm still on the fence about the Ea...

Re: [REVIEW] 3182 Airport

Excellent review, hatcher.

I've been watching this set to get discounted for a while. My primary interest is in the airplane. The interior of the airport seems like it could have used a few more details to increase playability.

Re: What overpriced set are you holding out for?

I'm holding out for the some of the higher priced AC sets, notably Earth Defense HQ and Alien Mothership. When I came out of my dark ages, I was very much drawn to Power Miners line towards the end of their production run. Before I discovered toysnbricks Sales & Deals forum, I bought many of them at...

Re: [REVIEW] 10194 Emerald Night

Nice review, Ice.

I've been tempted by this beautiful set, but it wouldn't mesh with my other motorized trains. When I add in the cost of motorizing the Emerald Night, the overall price just becomes too prohibitive.

Re: LEGO Star Wars 10221 Super Star Destroyer

I agree with some of the other folks in this thread: Although I do own the Death Star, I will probably pass on this one. In my mind, the super-expensive sets really need to tilt in one direction or the other. Either superb UCS sets for advanced builders & collectors or keystone sets (aka Death Star)...

Congratz on a great review! Possible to modify the cellar so that it can be easily accessible like the other modular floors? Using flats & plates with less studs to clutch 1st floor?

Re: [REVIEW] 10218 -- Pet Shop (Pic Heavy)

The pet shop building seems to be the best as each floor is very detailed. Where does the frog (not the structure one) goes? He sits on a shelf above the cash register on the pet shop. He must be a very well-behaved frog ;) Clearly, LEGO puts more effort and details when theres lesser floors/buildi...

Re: [REVIEW] 4181 PotC Isla de la Muerta

Nice review :)!

I am on the fence about this set, mainly due to its lack of originality. Compared to some of the other PotC sets, something just seems to be missing from this one.
