Here is my video review on 71044 Disney Train and Station: THE GOOD: The station and the train look stunning. Some very very interesting techniques in the station build. (Love the windows and the nice chairs) The 2 passenger carriages are both excellent both in terms of building experience and how they look. Excellent Minifigures. I was impressed with Mickey and Minnie. Some nice replicas of actual items in the real stations. Printed piece for the box of Disney Castle lego set! THE NOT SO GOOD: OVERPRICED! (especially for NZ, $599 is bit too dramatic) I wish they find a way to cover the wirings connecting the battery box and motor. Some nasty stickers to apply. The red bricks for the exterior are slightly too red in my opinion compare to the photos of the actual Disney Station. The included tracks unable to provide a big enough loop for a satisfied train run given this train is a bit longer and bigger than the typical lego train set. Overall, this is one stunning display model and yes, it is overpriced. I think the fair price in NZ should be just under $500. If you buy batteries and extra tracks for better experience, it will be close to $700. Having a high demand exclusive minifigure like Goofy in this set is a very very "corporate" decision XD Now I kinda relieve they didn't include Pluto. Anyway, apart from the price complain, the other only major negative is the exposed wiring. Other than that, this set is actually fun too build. Yes, the final bag could feel like hitting a wall in the final stage of marathon. However, I like they brought back multiple instruction booklets. One for each major components, this allow simultaneous building experience with your family and friends. There is a sharp contrast in terms of build techniques difficulty between the train and the station, the station is definitely for more advanced builders. In the end, I did not regret my decision to buy this and it was fun building with my wife and I like the end result. I will only recommend this set if you really like this set or a Disney fan though as the price is really a bit of a deal break if you are just looking for casual fun!
