G'day everyone - got lucky today and picked up myself from Toyworld Parafield - one 7937 train station !
Here we go.......
Front and back of the box.
Close up of the back of the box.
The DSS !
What you get in the box.
Bag number ONE !
Passenger and taxi driver.
Here's the taxi from start to finsh.
Bag number TWO !
New parts I think.
Backpacker and train station master.
Yep, that's the station house itself !
Bag number THREE !
Rare I think these are too !
First half of the overpass !
Bag number FOUR !
Finished one train station and the mother of all reviews !
EDIT TIME !!!
Okay, now I paid 79.99 for this set - parts wise and sadly the minifigs being the same old ones - Lego's DNA pool must be tiny I say value is only 3.5/5.
Design on the other hand is a 4.5/5 - you don't know how big this is until you build it - I actually love this station - though the taxi does look odd with those standard fat tyres (ones from the little postal car of a few years back might have been a better choice). Also how do those drinks stay cold - no fridge - a vending machine similar to the airport one might have been better. Well there the only two faults I can find.
Playability would require the use of a train of course, but with a train I'd rate this at 5/5 - it does the job, a double platform so more than one player can load and unload passengers, cross the bridge and tick off the older station master with silly questions where does that train go (can't they go across and read the map for themselves !
Overall - do the math - 4.3333whew/5 - very good set to add to any layout, still Lego needs to make the taxi a bit better and oh, I forgot the lighting - I feel it is a bit low, what do you all think ?
Now I'm done and I can get back to eating breakfast and taking the dog to the park (4 legged kind).
Keep on bricking everyone !
