REVIEW: Creator 5766 Log Cabin
Posted 22 November 2010 - 03:08 AM
I enjoyed very much and I wasn't sure whether to get this set in the first place but I am certainly surprised with the hinges that will helps to enhance its playability. By the way, this review is also blogged in,

I am also not a fan of the tree. What kind of branches are those supposed to be? Maybe I'm just looking at it wrong but I just don't get it.
I won't be buying this set as Pharaoh, Atlantis, Harry Potter, and maybe even NinjaGo will be taking all my money, but a very nice set from TLG.

I like it a lot for the part content, Light tan window and door frames, red brown roof, brown bricks (which you can never have to much of). I would of liked a base plate, ohh well.
So I'll be looking forward to this when it goes on special here in Australia. I bet Lego Australia will try to RRP it at $59.99. for this amount... no thanks.

(lincoln logs have a loggier flavor, but in details other than that, forget it. limited possibilities and no stability... yeah lego wins)

Nice review, thank you! I think this is a pretty good looking set...this is the first I have known of it. I am quite amazed at the inclusion of a minifigure which, if I remember right, is not usually part of the landscape in CREATOR sets.
Stop! Give me back my cart you knuckle-head!

The nostalgia aside, the design is simple and 'homey' and the colors work well. I would have liked to see the alternating corners with round bricks at the end, but the more I look at what there is, the more I'm ok with it. I like the raft/kayak. That tree is odd, but more for the green bricks than anything... I have always enjoyed a set outside of LEGO's norms (fire, construction, city, etc.) and am very happy to see they have taken a more "frontier" route here.

I prefer sets priced slightly higher and above ($60-$150), that offer enough pieces to make something substantial with.

I agree about the roof caps, not sure why they left them off. Seems like those few extra parts wouldn't have killed the price. I am not sure if they come in that color yet (the harry potter set is the first I have with dark red roof which I love, dark gray roof caps though).
I like the overlapping "logs" on the corners, but I don't care for the fact they are brick shapes (since they are brick!). When I get my hands on the set I think I'll modify it slightly to have rounded "logs" sticking out on the corner, see what that look like.
Overall a great looking set even with that strange tree (but the parts used will come in handy I think).
Great review, I love seeing all the photo!

I must say, these creator houses are getting better and better. they used to be fairly simple, with hardly any detail and no figs. It seems they're evolving to something closer to "town" - subthemes, which is pretty great! true, we may need a 4x4 parked next to the house, but hey, most of us have bricks enough to fix that...
ah yes, i'm also an old-timer in the Lego community, so i'm very glad to see the return of the classic hinge too!

Hope they return to their roots.

On which channel was it and which country?
@ Snefroe: I'm also happy with the new old classic hinge and in 2007 someone on classic castle named the portcullispart of the 7094 crown castle "classic", because it already appeared in the 6098 king Leo castle from 2000, so you can become very fast an old-timer.
