Pirate sets were easy to find at most Melbourne Target's. I was dissapointed to see Market Village totally pillaged by the time I got there at 1pm.

I agree that Space Police were great sets. Although I was disappointed with the Space Truck, in particular the bare underside of the container. All other sets were amazing though.

Pirates never interested me. even when I tried to like them.

That Power Miner set was creative in the use of just wheels and friction to have 5 moving grinders without the use of gears. Also love the fact that there's a coffee machine inside the cab.

Well I got one Medievel Market Village but I think I need two to make a decent sized set. One as per instructions and one custom tweaked a bit to provide the necessary differences.
Really can't wait till I'm able to make this up.

I was going to get it but have decided against the Medieval market to focus on the Premium sets (Firestation, Market Street, Cafe Corner etc or Taj mahal/Eiffel Tower) . Only reason I might change is if they give us something like a scene that premium sets which display so well. It's a bit of a regret cos I was looking forward to it a lot but i just don't have the space for it.

I built my Medieval Market Village last night and despite having no trolls or skeletons in it whatsoever it is an AWESOME set.

Unfortunately now that it is built I am very convinced that I have a missing piece. I've never had a missing piece from a lego set ever, what is the best course of action? I don't feel like dismantling the whole damned thing and returning it to Target on the account of a single 1x1 brick and its not the kind of piece that can be left out without looking glaringly bad. Well... thats not entirely true, I could do the i-pod shuffle.

This thread is collecting dust.

Recent Lego Acquisitions: The two truck Creator sets: 6752 Fire Truck & 6753 Carrier Truck. Probably the best sets I've built since the Agents Truck and the Technic Tow Truck. The build and detail is just amazing. Their sizes are mindblowing too, the tyres are as tall as a minifig. Have added in a few TF figures in there (RotF Jolt, Sideswipe & Bumblebee. Also Universe Inferno) for size comparison.









4 doors open, roof detaches easily so you can have a gander at the interior complete with seating for 4. No hand of god steering or steering at all for the tyres. The ladder stretches out, spins around a full 360 and can angle upwards at 90 degrees. The model engineering is done well as I couldn't believe the parts that came in the box could make this. The back is mainly panels to save a lot of pieces. One qualm is that the front bumper is only secured by 4 studs and could have done with some more towards the bottom as it tends to come off when nidged or touched with a bit of force.









Amazing set. The size of this puts even Masterpiece Prime's truck cab to shame. The cab is truly a work of art with the perfect lines and detail to sculpt the real life counterpart its imitating. The doors swing open, there are two chairs and steering wheel, gear shift, indicator bar and even a coffee maker. The roof detaches easily for an easier look at the interior. The trailer is a little simple and bare but it does it's job and has a little stand for when it comes off the cab, and 3 ramps that move to let the cars off. The two cars are gorgeous (red and white) and the yellow and green one are older sets that fit perfectly with this set. Deluxe TF fit too, perhaps a tad smaller.
