The more I hear about this set, the more I want it...
But not a word to my w****t.

... my wallet is watching me carefully at the moment.....

... Wallet is now growling and showing its teeth...


At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

I'm sorry, Graham, but I keep discovering more features of the house. The chandelier falls when you move the switch on top.

Seems like a similar effort to the original pyramid, with all the secrets and whatnot. Neat idea.  :egypt:

And the hologram effects! This set is well worth its pricetag! Thanks for sharing, Jim.

I wondered about the two shutters which lie diagonally across the entrance to the Mausoleum. Can they close off the entrance completely?

Graham, I FINALLY discovered how the shutters work. When they're clicked into the doorway so that they are hidden, you pull back on the gargoyle & the shutters fall back into place. There are SO many little clever bits with these sets.

Thanks, Jim. It seems as if the instruction sheets don't always show all the tricks you can do!
