REVIEW: 3182 Airport
Posted 31 May 2010 - 05:44 PM
Honestly, I think Lego, at least in most cases, does a pretty good job of finding the balance between including enough content and keeping the costs down. An airport could EASILY become a $250-300 USD set and probably be amazing, but in all likelihood they just wouldn't sell enough units for them to justify releasing it in the first place.
It would actually be cool if we had an AFOL-targeted airport set at a price point like that.
Compared to other Lego airports of the past though, this airport building is actually reasonably big and nice. The airport buildings TLG has made before have always been way too small, even by the standards of Lego building scales, so this is a refreshing change. The police stations in the past were much bigger than the airports. The one thing I miss though is the runway baseplates that the 80s and 90s airports had.

Other than that, I think this is a fine airport and if this is ever a targeted AFOL Airport set, I am sure it will be an instant hit for many City AFOL collectors.
