This is an interesting direction for Lego but one that is executed quite nicely.
The model itself looks great when finish & has a nice display factor that is lost on some of the more traditional Lego models. (My wife hasn't moved it from our display/bookcase since I built it - most of my other models including the Lego Art which I think is really cool didn't last more than a few days on display).
The wooden effect base is quite weak and doesn't have enough pieces to keep it straight/solid but if you aren't going to move it often is a minor point.
You can choose between two tree types for the leaves as they have separate bags (one for the green & another for the white/pink).
I don't like having pieces left over are the end of a build but it gives flexibility and you can also mix-n-match.
Overall I'm quite happy with it and think the fifty franc price is fair.…mehr
