I agree with you about the price...
Still, it is an awesome set,
One I might even get, though I don't usually get the Christmas sets. :)

I set up my new nativity scene mixing it with my older set.


Nice. All that's missing is a bunch of Roman soldiers patrolling the area  ;)

The larger 4884 has a lot more accessories for an additional $10 IMO

Indeed, this set 5958 seems to be a (bit) cheaper US-mass market version of the 4884 with a klicky less (the sheperd) and much fewer accessories, while the baseplate & structure is the same. In Belgium, the bigger 4884 is available for ca. 22 euros (in big stores) to 25 euros (on the official site)...

I too wish the base plates were left off such sets. The building looks so useful for so many themes and time periods. A better designed building with the beautifully detailed Klikies, even a few more shabby peasant looky-loos, the card board back drop (goes to the pile of advent calendars useless backdrops) add a few bushes or trees... all this for $19.99 out the door ....Ill take 2 dozen    :shhhh:

Thanks.  I swapped some parts and used one of the Joesph's as a Shepard too.  I never really liked the cardboard back drop and was going to shop for a near to scale manger scene that was wooden and replace the figures.  Then I saw this new kit.
