...Half-Price Books near my work got some vintage Lego sets in somehow. I mean, REALLY vintage. If I'd had $150, I could have gotten Yellow Castle IN THE BOX...  :evil:  They had a bunch of 80's era castle stuff, but Yellow Castle was the only one they had that I'd never had.

Got these, though:

This will actually be the third one of those raft sets I got, but I never had any of the Islander sets when I was a kid. They came out when I was in High School and went through a Dark Age that lasted until my early college years. I blame... um... Huh, what WAS I doing during that time? Oh yeah, playing D&D a lot...

Again, how do you think *I* feel?!? If I had a spare $500 lying around, I could have gotten Yellow Castle, the original 80's King's Castle, the original Black Seas Barracuda, and the Carribean Clipper!!!  :evil:

Thing is... I already HAVE three of those four, from the original releases. King's Castle came out when I first got into Lego, and I got it as a Saturnalia present one year in the 80's. Freaking Yellow Castle though... NEVER had that...

One would think that it would be cheaper than 100$ at half-price books. though it is considered a collectors item by some

Huh...

Target Exclusive, apparently. $20. Kind of like the little scenes on the back of the box.

Image

Sorry, don't know why the camera washed out the color on these photos. You get a lot of stuff for $20! 4 minifigs, a dog, a bicycle, a trash can, the little food stand, and more! Lots of donuts and pie bits and cookies. If you like food pieces, this isn't a bad way to go. If you're doing a city scene, this isn't a bad way to go. It's a COFFEE SHOP. Seriously, what Lego city DOESN'T need a coffee shop? Oh, and they sell pastries too, obviously.

Image

Came with lots of extra bits as well! The banana is supposed to be in the trash can, but I left the lid of the can on.

Image

Nurse has her cell phone, and the Barista has a double-sided head. One side is all "I'm a happy coffee seller," the other is all "mmm, smells like good coffee," as shown here.

Image

Buuuuuuuut I think Lego needs to make some different 'money' pieces, cause DAMN, that's a LOT of money for a coffee! NICE tip though, if that's what it is for!  :warhead:

Overall, nice little build, would make a good little structure for a more open area in a Brikwars battlefield. Or for a food fight... hmm...........   :twisted:
