I don't think we need to argue whether it is a book or a set, I see it as both, a nicely printed instruction book with the actual bricks (over 140 pcs and 2 minifigs), and can be used to build a rich variety of models! And being able to come up with so many models with the same set of material is simply astonishing. I am not sure if it is related to the BrickMaster program (http://shop.lego.com/Product/?p=KBM27) or is this a new product line to be released in such format (while I believe that the later is more likely).
Nice printed book that comes with a set of bricks
Some nice parts
So here I am sharing one model that we can come up with the bricks, it looks really good:
One of the Model - Treasure Island
So the remaining factor on whether you would get this set would probably be...Pricing? I got it here at around USD 12.70, that's a good deal for me.
