Wow... Now that's a parts pack. It's got a certain busy-ness feel that seems very appropriate.

[runs to check if he has 299 VIP points - dang... no - eyeing the CMF complete series that are just collecting dust - thinks he can fund the purchase that way --- realizes this is probably US pricing. - heck CMFs still pull decent coin and can still fund it that way - scurries off to find more info about the LEGO Ninjago movie sets --- scrambles to find the contact of the guy at Animal Logic in Vancouver that's working on this movie.]

Wow. 4867 pcs for only 300. 6 cents a brick.
The black terracotta roof looks great, and using black car doors for roofing to is awesome. Nice find Degobbi.

Given our current exchange rate I'm loving the LEGO exchange rate - $349.99 CAD for this set (no need for a cross-border shopping trip for this big set.)
Tons of interesting parts uses (like the crowbars for an awning, or the 1x1 rounds inside the trans clear brick) and some nice new pieces (like the black fence part), and several new minifig torsos.

It's a great a set, but I see a lot of stickers.

So is there a market for printing LEGO bricks with the UV printer rather than applying stickers? I wonder what people would pay for that, assuming that the buyer has to send the bricks from the set to the printer, labour costs and then postage back.
