Yep. The lighting is strange because these pics are taken in my closet ::).... the reasons why are a long story! :lol: The flash doesn't do well with the close-ups, but is neccessary with the other shots, so that's why it's inconsistant.

I really like how the structuresa are seperated in three or four pieces, like the fairytale castle!!! and I can't believe how many items, especially knights this set has!!! WOW!!!

Thank you Bonnie for another excellent review and pictures!!

I figured that was it.  If you have photo software, it will almost certainly have an option to auto adjust a picture and that will restore the pics taken without flash to look as if they were taken in standard lighting.

I'm using kodak easyshare... it does have scene balance options, but only ones that make it look more yellow! :o BTW, the reason it looks yellow isn't the lighting -- the lighting is very good LED track lighting -- it's because the walls are yellow. ;) I take the pics in there because all my furniture is dark wood and my counters are black, so the pieces just don't show up well. In my living room the walls are chocolate brown, and the shelves are black. ::) And there isn't a good place outside to do them, either. So I'll just have to deal with the yellow until I one day have a playmoden with the right backgrounds for taking pics.

A very excellent and thorough review  :wave: This is Collin's favorite (and the only micro set we have). He pretends it is a movie theater, and he says he is watching his castle movie  :P

Aw, that's so cute! It does kind of remind me of a theater!
