Definitely a great set to build up a little town with. I have Sheriffs offices, Saloons and Banks aplenty, but no normal businesses such as a Dry Goods Store, Barber, Undertaker etc., and no normal houses for people to live in, so the stickers will not be applied in my case. The Sheriffs office lock-up wold make a great store room for a dry goods store.

Shame they make the Sheriff's desk and chair red. Why? Why? What's wrong with a normal wood color? Is his desk not fashioned from wood? Maybe it's from a Californian Redwood...

Nice review Gis! I'll be getting two or three when they ride into town!

Maybe it's painted wood. ;D i'm going to do the same thing.... buy several and make different stickers (something I have never attempted) for them.

Hi, can I see some pictures on how the roof parts are connect to the building? Is it system X?

Here is a picture of the "front parts" of the buildings. The first and third parts are the roofs. They have four connectors that fit System-X holes. Hope this helps :-)

I couldn't resist and bought this as well!

This is a lovely set and although it mostly uses old parts, it is the best set for me of 2011!
Couple of remarks:
I had the glass windows as well, maybe yours were simply missing?
The quality of some parts is different: items are more shiny, klicky's bend more easily and hats don't stay on to well. This set is completely made in the Czech republic. I guess that is why they could make it so cheap!
Absolutely love it!

I know, but we're willing to pay more for the quality! That's why we buy playmobil, not megablocks!!! Are they crazy? They're going to lose a lot of customers if they sell out like this. >:(
