No, and I don't know how to appreciate real architectural beauty, instead it needs more Star Wars pieces and some guns!

Don't know how many of you have checked the Exclusives section, but I present to you the most beautiful Lego set in the world. If you watch the video for it, the designer says that there are 556 tan cheese slopes.

I would like to choose the No option but I don't think like that :?
Its a cool set, but nothing that great... It WOULD be that great if it was minifig scale, eheh, now that would be beautiful!

To be honest, I think it is neither a "great" set nor a "bad" set. For what it is, I think it looks ok. But I would not spend my money on it. There are lots of sets I would buy for the same money long before I bought that one.

It looks nice, but I would never, ever buy it.

I'd buy it mostly for the parts, which will probably be up on Bricklink in a couple months.

This set is like a Spanish whore. It looks nice, but once you have it, you regret spending your money on it.

Yeah, it's a pretty irrational set to buy, but it would make an extremely nice display piece. Also, it looks like you could build a lot more different things than its predecessors (Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Taj Mahal) because of its variety in pieces, so even if it was the only set you ever got, it's got enough variety in its many many pieces to make sure you'll stay occupied with it. The printed shield is a really nice detail too.

i already have too many blue base plates already, and i have no idea what i would do with 500 cheeses so as a parts pack, it's not ideal.
and as a display piece, i have no idea where i would put it.
