This set is awesome. It has opened the door for more civilian sets hopefully. The new pieces all look useful, and I think this set will make beginner builders better. The cows aren't as impressive as Brick Forge's, but it gives the purists something to moo about.
It seems that this was a surprise to most AFOL's, and what a surprise it is. This should teach the
at Euroleak that surprises have a purpose. I'm also pleased that the rain of tears of non-fantasy fans will subside for quite a while. This is what I was hoping for, the best of both worlds.
