my best guess is that it will be around $40 just like the Egyptian tomb/house as it has a comparable amount of piece/size



Edit: oops didn't read far enough ... guess that is about on target :)
Someday, I will organize my stuff, I promise.

VERY nice !
Nice to see the new foil, even though it's rubbery. Though I think a rapier would be more accurate.
Cheers!

I thought I posted earlier but don't see my response. As much as I am looking forward to the new redcoats I think the bastion in blah. I'm not happy about the click system and think that the lighthouse was MUCH more interesting.

Still will probably get it for completeness but I am still decidedly underwhelmed.

The klickies on the othehand are SPECTACULAR.

Thanks for the review Pano.

A very cool set! :wow:
I love the Officer, and the book keeper. :o :love:
As I said before, I do not like the new redcoat uniforms. :-\

Still, I think it is wanting... I would go for the old harbor set,
Since you can connect two of those together,
But you cannot do that with these.

Also, the dock is facing the wrong way, Or I think so.
Usually you are defending the docks on the sea side are you not? ???

But I still really like this set! :D
And I think if I ever saw one I would probably buy it. :)9

A nice looking set, the klickies seem really good. The structure seems a bit too rounded to me, not as realistic as past ones.

Panos could you tell me the part number for the blue-footed booby?

The way the boxes are packed - when we had the tour of the factory we asked about that. In part it has to do with how quickly the parts can be put into the box as it's going down the line. If it is a tight fit then it takes longer to pack the box, which costs more in labor time, which increases the end price of the item. I don't mind the contents being a bit loose if it keeps a dollar or two off of the price. The exception to me is when it's a painted item - large painted items should get bagged anyway since they can get scratched up bouncing around in the box.

That does make sense. Though it changes nothing on our end... :(  I find it hard to believe that in the END it turns out cheaper.. but I'm probably wrong. If it's packed manually, that might be more expensive than the materials, transport, packaging, storing, etc..

Thanks for the explanation :)

I don't mind the lack of uniformity. It looks much more realistic this way. A lovely set, if you can get past the idiocy of the officer's holster.
