Classic
" For starters, the art work on the box is worth the price. This is the type of set that an adult can appreciate and a child can enjoy. If you haven’t already, be sure to watch the original cartoon. The only thing better would be if, one day, they expanded this to oh, say, a 5,000 piece set! "

Winner!
" Got mine yesterday at 930pm via FedEx. Night owl who stayed up and built it. What a refreshing change from the Aston-Martin debacle! My neighbor had one of these new back in 1967/68 high school (sorry, my car was a Plymouth Roadrunner and my best friends was a 440 Cuda). The designer did a great job of representing the design of the car with Lego bricks. How about more American muscle? Thanks, Lego. Great job! "

Stop complaining, already!
" Received as a gift. Okay, so it’s obvious to even a casual observer that by their very nature, some things are going to be ‘repetitive’ as far as the build is concerned. Taj Mahal, Tower Bridge, Roller Coaster. All have characteristics that involve using the same structural component over and over and over. But, the result is very rewarding and very true to the structures actual shape and form. The modular building series, in general, is not repetitive. The Creator expert series has many sets representing actual buildings that, by their very nature, have to involve repetitive actions.
This is a fun build and an impressive set once completed. "

Shallow representation of a complex city.

Starting to wonder.....
" ......why? These city skylines were interesting.....at first. Nothing much to say about this one. If you’ve built one in this series, you’ vet built them all. Not bad, just ‘ho-hum’. Quality of Lego justifies the price. I’m now at the point where I wish this ’theme within a theme’ would move out on its own and we’d get more and larger stand alone architecture sets. These sets would be best moved out of the architecture series and sold as souviners in the cities they represent. I have no problem with ‘repetitiveness’ when building a large structure like the Taj Mahal. But, I do have a problem with repetitiveness when comparing set to set to set......like these city skyline sets. "

Nice with options.
" Okay, so the look of this building is better than the last few. The price is fair given the appearance of the building and the creative theme. But, Lego, you’ve got me again. It took me a dozen Grand Emporium sets to get a really ‘grand’ emporium. What makes no sense in this set is why there would be businesses above a gas station who’s main characteristics include flammable liquids, carbon monoxide and noise. So, I’m going to separate the first floor from the upper floors and create a larger service/gas station with more pumps and bays. Then, I’ll create another building with a first floor that looks like the upper two floors and include businesses on the new first level. The color and bricks also make this a candidate for being ‘redeveloped’ into a brownstone type of residential building. Thanks for a great template! I can see buying a bunch of these! "

Lego’s take on Pachisi
" I mean, what’s not to like? Bright, colorful and fun to play. Dice would be better than a ‘spinner’. Very creative product by Lego. Hopefully, Lego can release their takes on other board games. "

Stocking stuffer, so to speak.......
" Great time for new Christmas ideas. Compliments to Lego for releasing a set that’s such a creative use of ‘bricks’. I’ll be buying several of these for the kids in the family and charity donations. "

Almost there......
" I really try to be objective in my reviews and not grant ‘fives’ to everything that comes down the road. Because even a Lego designer can have a bad day. With that said, this is a satisfactory set and I appreciate Lego continuing the series. While I don’t fully understand forcing a fire station into my Christmas themed Lego display, it is a very eye catching set. I do wish it were a more complete building and I think I’ll use some extra bricks I have to make it more of a modular style building. While the minor figs aren’t of much value to me, there are nice ones included with the set. The Dalmatian is neat. "

Thanks.....
" .....for another set in this adult oriented series. Excellent representation of the city skyline. Let’s not get too concerned about GPS like accuracy of a building’s positioning on the plate. The set is intended to represent the skyline, not be a map. "
