The final stage of this epic build. I have to say I was going quite slowly because one I wanted to enjoy it and two because both of my beautiful cats love to flick the pieces I'm building all over the place. Well, what can I say - There are fantastic features in this set including the chandelier, the scooter, the window cleaner, the mannequins, the dark green canopies, the ice cream stand, the dolls house, the dark green windows 50+ in all, the shop sign, the man getting changed etc etc. The overall shape is quite different to the Cafe Corner as it has a rounded (corner) and the shop floors extend right to the back of the plates. I notice that the back of the building really doesn't have any detail. In my layout you wouldn't be able to see it anyway so I'm glad more attention has been paid to the interior details.
The price is high, but I would buy this set whatever the price, and spend a day of my life building and reviewing it. I'm guessing a lot of people are being put off by the price per piece ratio - maybe the reason its been removed from the LEGO Shop @ Home sites is they're reviewing the price?
If I had to change anything it would be to uncover some of those beautiful dark green windows. That's all though. I'm going to add to the stock by putting in the toys from the City Advent Calendar and The Winter Toy Shop, and I have other bits and pieces to flesh out the interior. I will try my hardest to post pics by the end of the week. Any questions you have, feel free to ask.
