This is the first time I do a set review, so please let me know if u want to know any more info of this set. Also I hope the images are showing fine for you...
Name: Sceneries Set
Piece Count: 1207
Catalog reference: Bricklink
Price: $84.95 USD
I guess the education sets are a bit different from the others. First it comes with such a box:
In addition, it does not have printed building instructions in the box. I found some pdfs on the official website (though it seems to only include part of the instructions for the models shown in the official images): LEGO Education -> Click "Resources"
Opening the box:
Close-up views for the parts:
These might be among the most interesting parts of this set: a lot of Magenta 1x2 bricks, glittering dark pink 1x1 bricks and trans orange 1x1 bricks:
Lime, orange, pearl-gold etc
Yellow and light tan:
Pink and misc:
The build is relatively simple so I will just show its finish stage and some details. Although some models are not in the online pdfs, you can easily make them by yourself.
I like the gingerbread house:
There are no mini-figures in this set, but these figures(do they have an official name) are also cute:
I am not good at rating but will try to:
Parts: 9/10 (It has a good lot of pink selections as well as the other bright colors, which is the main reason I purchase this set)
Playability: 8/10 (It looked quite simple at first sight by an AFOL, but I started to grow on this set when building)
Design: 8/10 (Can not say too much about that but it seems to be a very decent educational set)
Price: 8.5/10 (Got it @Amazon for $70 - not bad for a 1200 piece set, and there are quite some interesting parts)
Thanks for reading. Hope you enjoy this set!
BTW: I am done with posting. If any moderator can remove that "(to be continued)" from the title of my post, it will be greatly appreciated!
