I'll have to dig out my lego mat to build it up.

Awesome set, plenty of fun, plenty to keep you out trouble with your gf. Until she finds the $160AUD receipt.
The UK £-price is actually £68.49
My dear got me one for 79€, and no extra shipping, the internet site where she ordered it prepares its orders close to her parents'. They don't have interesting regular prices, but some specials can be worth as the Taj Mahal at 269€ or the big boat 10210 for 129€.
I was argueing with her, seeing such a low price, (~30€ less than S@H including shipping!) to be allowed to buy at least one, but she was always saying no. Guessing that I would end up buying one or more against her advice, she told me she had already bought one for my birthday/christmas and it was supposed to be a surprise.
I'm like a kid, it's the bigger set I have ever had, can't help myself, 1600 parts, imagine, my whole lego "collection" is hardly 5000 parts.
But I don't understand and still wonder why TLC molded dark brown barrels and no round 2x2 plates to match the color.For the mods, I'll see what will be needed, I have some loose doors, for the stairs, I'll have to S@H, anyway I need some other parts.
It seem so cool with those details, animals, and civilians, I think I couldn't have dreamed better year end. With the Kingdoms' advent calendar, 2010 will be my best lego Year/Christmas. And probably the last christmas we would be able to get the MMV.
In the meantime, I'll had to seek for a new display too.
