It's pretty nice. From an adult perspective, it's a great display set. Not sure if kids would get much play out of it - even if they know what The Flintstones are.Nice, I'm totally torn on that Flintstones set.
I just wish Betty wasn't the Rosie O'Donnel version and wish they would have included Dino, Bam Bam, and Pebbles.
This set just looks ‘not quite finished’. And they are SOOOO close to that. Dino and the kids would have completed it. One other thing that I don’t like is why is Barney the same size as Fred? They should have used the shorter legs. He just looks wrong.I just wish Betty wasn't the Rosie O'Donnel version and wish they would have included Dino, Bam Bam, and Pebbles.
OH MAN! I Bought and LOVE the Old Fishing Store, awesome lego set!!!
I'll paste here what I just posted about it on another Lego forum:
I like the design and it looks like a fun build.
With the approved model being 2160 pieces it is going to be substantially redesigned. We have never had an Ideas set of 1k+ pieces. I'm concerned that the final product will be a shell of the original model and that it will lose a lot of what makes it good.
One of the main things that makes this design so great is the lack of visible studs and the color used for the tiles that gives it an aged look. If the final model doesn't hide the studs and use the nice color variety of tiles in the roof and the walls and the decking, and also the nice brick look on the lower part of the model, it will be another case of "what was voted on is not what was delivered".
But I'll keep my fingers crossed and keep a hopeful attitude about it. The current design is wonderful.
