REVIEW: Creator 5766 Log Cabin
Posted 22 November 2010 - 09:06 PM
Still I really appreciate the mood and the atmosphere of the set.
And it's true: totally recall Rocky's cabin :D

The fig is okay... but as far as I'm concerned, this is where the dude with the 3178 Seaplane lives...

I really try hard to focus ONLY on the City line, but there are so many other beautiful sets out there. :-(
This one really is a Must-Have.

Regarding the set, my opinion has not changed from my initial judgment of this set back when the prelims surfaced. I still feel the previous two Creator houses (Beach House & Apple Tree House) is better than this one. It's not that bad actually, it's just that Beach House kinda 'set the bar too high' in terms of Creator House designs that this one pales in comparison.

on a plus, the amount of brown bricks is very nice... most sets neglect certain colors, you know?
so if you in the need for brown bricks, this is a set you should buy(I may buy 2-3 of them for just spare bricks alone) "AFTER" the holiday when most stores are doing the buy 2 get one free sales...
Great pics in this thread... I liked the details a lot... thank you

Although this looks like a simple build it does look like a decent set, I really like the little things like the bricks extending out to produce that log-look.
The colour scheme and design are well done, and I love the boat and stream along side the cabin.
Thanks for the review!

For me, the highlights of this set is the new 8x16 and 16x16 plates. They are just much more useful than base-plates.

Your review is well done. I especially like your comparison to the Rocky River Retreat. Ah, the classics!

I think I'll get this one when it'll be available.

One odd thing about this set is that there isn't a window pane for the small attic window in the main model. It isn't a big deal but it would've been nice for it to have one.

I do find the tree very strange, and really would have prefered to have a molded tree, or at least some leaf pieces. But I understand that this is the Creator philosophy, and those tooth pieces are useful for other things. The duck in one of the alternate builds uses the tooth pieces and is fabulously cute. Maybe I'll chop that tree down and raise me some ducks.

Just finished putting my set together. Fun little build. The little boat is cool and I don't mind the tree.
I love the new dark red roof tiles and it's nice to have a ample source of additional beige window frames and an extra door frame. The standard plate bases are good because they are more versatile pieces than baseplates.
Hopefully we'll see some more complex roof tile parts in this nice dark red colour down the line.
I gave this an above average and think it's a great addition to the Creator theme.

I gave this an average rating as for me it doesn't leap straight out at me but the addition of the minifig is nice, I'd also like TLG to continue this kind of 'wilderness' theme, eg. bringing back the polar bear mold but brown. I think I will get this set in the future, the parts will be useful and I might have a go to make it more 'logish'. I also voted the beach house because I liked all the windows and doors and roof tiles you get with it.

I really liked the kayak in this set. The backpack is cool too.
I wish this set had more greenery. I mean it's a cabin! The tree build was a little strange. I think even one or two of the juniorized pine trees would have been cool, or at least some flowers. In general, I've been on the lookout for Lego sets that can be mined for parts to make foliage and general wildlife.
P.S. Most places seem to be selling this set for a little less than MSRP, at least here in the US.
