|The population of the Town Square |
(I don't count the statue as a minifigure, though it actually is!)
The bus is similar to other Lego versions from the past few years with a few design tweaks and many more stickers! With room to fit a driver and seven passengers it is a nice, solid vehicle. It has two doors but if you want to place the passengers in it, you have to resort to the good old Lego solution of taking the roof off!
|Side, front and back view.|
The bike shop is a nicely designed corner building with two floors selling bicycles, motorbikes and clothes. The bottom floor is mostly taken up with a cute revolving door that barely fits a figure through, a sales counter and items for sale. There are helmets, hats and jackets on display. I ought to mention the 'jackets' are minifigure torsos, without legs or heads....scary! The top floor has the bicycles and a motorbike on display with more hats. The floor has eye-catching orange / black checkered tiles To top it all off the roof has a revolving sign, though this is partly obscured by small spotlights!
Finally there is the centerpiece of the Town Square - the statue! A knight with a sword and shield, which is a minifigure in light gray with no printing, mounted on a small column with frogs on each corner for added interest I think! There is a plaque with '1432' on the front of the column.
This is quite an expensive set (79.99 GBP / 119.99 US$) but you do get a lot for your money and there are so many different scenarios that can be made. It is a great set that will keep the kids / adults occupied for hours.
A must buy for City fans!
