    I was way more impressed by WWFS than this, tbh.

    I’m not gonna praise something I do not find any reason to praise. Criticism is important to drive things forward. I’ve praised pretty much all of the other modulars (with some criticism to PC), which I think are great and that the designers on the whole have done an excellent job. But this just doesn't meet the standard of the previous, not even close, and my opinion is strengthened by the unnecessary price increase. It feels lacking in so many ways, and it's important to let the designers know instead of just giving praise when you're not actually satisfied with it.

    Reading the thread from when PR was released, I can’t really see that much «hate» as you describe. As for the CG - since when did criticism become «hate»?

    No rumoured d2c set for 2019? Diagon alley?

    The set should have leaked early. The danger of not leaking the set is the extremely high anticipation it builds up, which the «countdown» showed. And now the expectations are painfully chrushed after waiting so long...

    Just looking at Parisian Restaurant again makes this set feel really bland and flat.

    Could not agree more. I was yet to be disappointed before this arrived. Maybe it has something to do with the very high standard of the others. In addition, I believe we are allowed to have high expectations when the price is so high.

    I wouldn’t say constructive criticism is ‘insulting’. And aren’t people allowed to have their own opinion before it turns to ‘negativity’ and ‘insults’? Or is your appraisal/positive opinion the only thing that matters?

    I feel the criticism is more justified this time considering the price increase and the underwhelming/flat facade. However, that's only my opinion.

    The facade of the upper floors lacks details in my opinion. Especially if you compare it with PR, AS, BB, DO, etc. It just feels too simple and the colours make it look flat. PR, AS and DD had some very new, complicated facade details, which I find hard to find in this set. I like the ground floor, though, and it's more detailed. The upper floors however are very small and the gas pump seems to take a lot of space.

    Hmm... Not really digging this. It's underwhelming, lacks details and I do not see how they can justify the price increase. The two upper floors are really lacking interiors and do not have nearly as much detail as e.g. Parisian Restaurant. The front of the upper floors remind me of an old government building from the outside. Where's the detail and creativity, seen in previous sets?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yes, I love that episode. I was considering freezing myself down at one point, but given the complications that Cartman faced, it's not exactly an optimal choice.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I think they are great and beautifully designed. However, I never buy them, and I'm not that interested in owning them. I'm more interested in buildings and sets from historical eras. The other series of sets I'm following are WW and HP (and Castle when it existed), but only the big, D2C sets. I'm hoping for a Diagon Alley modular style building.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Half an hour now. What to do when it's finally revealed? Been constantly checking this forum and other sites since September for rumours and discussions. And it's still a while away for the 2020-modular hype train.
