Town Plan... For destruction!

Postby Carrnevil9 » Thu Jan 03, 2008 2:22 pm

On the off chance you guys haven't seen this yet, http://shop.lego.com/ByTheme/Product.as ... =245&d=100
Perhaps it's just me, but this seems to have amazing brikwar potential. I can't help but be a little disappointed that most of it is a facade, but it has a gas station. Y'know, as in... kaboom!

actually, yes. the cinema is what really made it for me. that vertical sign is just BEGGING to be used as a massive sword. you could also combine this with a few other building sets to make a decent sized town to tear apart.

So it would look something like... this? http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZiHer4MD5Oo
just with a cinema sign instead of a sword? "I am the cinema sign that smites evil?"

the cars would also be fairly usefull because they are mostly flat they offer good cover and it would be easy to mount guns on them.

more like "I am the cinema sign that smites Dimmys."
This set would make an amazing battle field.

was just thinking about buying that set so as to get the cars. the cars are pretty good for mounting guns and there is a gas station. That baby is begging for C4!!!

alright, breakdown by-building of this set:

GAS STATION: my friends, this is a gas station. i shouldn't need to say more. however as a strategy tip for the player controlling the gas station as an HQ: get those tanks out ASAP. use em as weapons, drain em out to make a ring of fire, i don't care. also, the car wash on the gas station makes a good repair depot/mechanik base.

TOWN HALL: provides excelent cover from all directions and high ground. it looks like you might need baseplates though to construct an indoor second story. sure it's a facade, but you can always go with "invisible walls" rules, or the "bombed out remains" effect (basically just say that a previous struggle blew off the back wall).

CINEMA: the box office makes a nice machinegun nest, and while the roof is lower than the town hall's, it offers more cover. fewer windows though means less offensive capability. and of course, that sign could be *ahem* useful.

FOUNTAIN + CARS: cars are easily modified to have weapons and a driver, but i'd personally just flip em over for cover. combined with park benches and you've got a makeshift fortress. the fountain is also just the right height for a minifig to stand behind for a bit of cover.

Gee, IVhorseman, when you put it into that perspective, it really does make the set look worth it =P
