"I pulled out my old lego roadplates and the non 32x32 roadplates from the attic to build my kids an lego city. Since my kids got lego vehicles from lego city, they were wanting to have roads with them. They were given this set by a family member and then I checked the stores and online stores for the roadplates of lego city. Unfortunately I was shocked... Only because there were 2 sets and you can't buy the road plates seperately anymore like when I was a kid with the grey plates. Because of this I dug deep on the attic for my old lego road plates, now they have an lego city but the vehicles are a bit wider then the vehicles I had in my youth. I hope Lego will reconsider these packs and also make them cheaper because they cost tripple or more then the old plates did in the 80's. I don't want to buy a lot of straights and crossing only for the straights. The way I (re-)built the city for my kids only has 2 crossings 10 corners, 4 T and a lot of straights. If I had to buy these new roadplates I would have spent an fortune on them. Though do not get me wrong.. they look great and they allow for the new era vehicles to ride over them and stay between the roadlines.
So my thumbs up on the detail of the plates, but thumbs down on the price and set selection. I rly hate giving bad review to Lego because I had sooo much fun in my youth with this toybrand.. my kids love Lego too.."
