A great way to start 2017 Lego...Great BuildThank you Lego. Thank you for making January 1, 2017 a day to remember. My local Lego Store is 3 hours away. This is the first time I have ever made the drive to get a modular set on day 1. I was 10th in line and the store didn't open for another 25 min. Thankfully I got 1.
The comes boxed in numbered bags 1-6. This is a definite departure from the days of bags going up to 14 or more. Half of the bags come in a smaller cardboard box. The instructions, much to my disappointment, were not protected in plastic this time and suffered damage. I hope Lego corrects this in the future with such a large instruction book.
Price and Piece Count Justified
The price and piece count are very good here. For a 4,002 piece set I think you get a good variety of shapes and colors. There is a large amount of 1x1 studs as per usual. The new design elements work really well and give a visual look to the buildings that has not been seen too much before. I saw a lot of carryover in building style between this set and last years Disney Castle.
Return of Classic Green baseplate!!/Layout
Lego brought back the classic green baseplates for this set! Oh how I missed this much darker green color and hope that they are utilized more in the future. The build layout is easy to follow and the instructions are clear. I did not feel overwhelmed at any point during the build. There are key building techniques repeated throughout the build.
Building Layout Continued
A lof of thought went into each building layout here. I feel that there is more space for figures to work in. Not every level of the build is that way, but high ceilings allow more access and ability to stage figures within. I enjoyed building each level and feel that they all have more pros than cons. Lego spent a great deal of time on the exterior and interior designs, but the window elements are lacking.
I like a wide variety of window treatments and unfortunately, there are many missed opportunities here for curtains and or more ornate window assemblies. The saving grace comes from the unique use clear of garage door pieces for windows in the bakery and the ample skylight on dance studio roof. I love being able to look into window and see the light cascade off the ballerina minifigure as if she is under a spotlight...nice effect
You get a nice variety of figures and body prints in this set. I highly recommended exchanging classic Lego heads for newer models. All of my figures, except the baby, now have more life and personality thanks to head swaps.
Play vs. Display and Baseplate Concerns
This is a massive build with many delicate features. I have concerns about me handling it appropriately. Since there are two baseplates used, I highly recommended moving the model in sections and securing both hands under base. I think Lego should have given us a solid baseplate or made better efforts to secure baseplates with tile. During the build, you will notice not much is holding plates together.
I would not feel comfortable giving this to a child under the age of 7 unless the building is on a flat surface and each level has been taken apart to play. I see this more as a display piece.
I have plans to display mine on a higher shelf with other modular buildings but will take great care in placement.
Pros: price, elements, minifigures, previous modular easter eggs, display value
Cons: unprotected instruction book, limited window treatment/element usage, and baseplate structural integrity
Thank you very much for looking at my review.

Tons of fun!This build is so much fun!
I was given this as a late Christmas gift a couple days ago and I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of building it. The tiny little details thrown into every room keeps things unique, and interesting. And three floors to build means you're not going to finish it up anytime soon. Certainly a more expensive set, but definitely worth it.

Assembly SquareThis is absolutely a fitting release to be the anniversary release to celebrate the modular line. Like every great throw-back, reunions of our favorite tv show casts, and revivals, this product reminds us of the best nostalgic things we've seen released in recent years. This product has some incredible fan service bits and pieces, like the inclusion of this years favorite new piece that made everyone scream "it's about time"- the lego baby.
Then we've got great tie-ins to other modulars like the simple fountain in the square which can be replaced by the AWESOME poly bag they gave out as a promo in 2016. With any set this price, we want to see quality unique minifigures, we want to see printed pieces (not stickers) , and rare or unusual pieces that tell us "yeah, this is a $300 set"...and this release delivers.
You've got challenging and interesting build techniques, a quality instruction manual that feels hefty and is crisp and well printed with bold, easy-to-tell colours, and we get that. As always with lego, they balance reality with space limitations, you see a very sensible use of space, and no derail is left forgotten; the set is a
fantastic addition for someone who already has every modular ever made, or, it's the perfect starting point for someone who wants to get into building a gorgeous city.
All in all, I highly recommend this set to anyone who is looking for an interesting build and a beautiful set. Please see evansfamilylegoproject on all social media to see our amazing lego city and more reviews and insights on lego collecting.

Great value for moneyI got this on its release day of 1 of Jan. I'd say the price for what you get is perfect 34 bags of pieces and over 200 pages of instructions well worth it. I was very satisfied with the look and build quality of the market square except the amount of pieces that join the 32x32 base plate with the 16x32 base plate care should be taken when moving. Very nice intricate design details from the backers to the florist, and proper details on every floor impressed me a lot. I would recommend it to anyone thinking of a challenging build
