    What an awesome set! And some nice parts usage to boot.

    Perhaps, I think, the first set to be unveiled in the southern hemisphere! Does this mark the coming of age of the Australian fests?

    It is rare for me to get very excited about a new set as anything other than a parts pack these days.

    But this is simply outstanding all around. It’s an attractive and functional build that any AFOL would be proud to come up with as their own MOC – it doesn’t seem juniorized nor is the price bad at all for the parts included. I absolutely love the way the whole thing (including that fence) folds up so neatly and fits on the trucks. What a wonderful set. Thanks Lego.
