I think this set+book thing published by DK Publishing (Please check out their site link for the item) provides great value at HKD 99 (around USD 12.70), it contains a lot of good parts, and being able to come up with so many models with the same set of material is simply astonishing. I am not sure if it is related to the BrickMaster program (http://shop.lego.com/Product/?p=KBM27) or is this a new product line to be released in such format (while I believe that the later is more likely).
So here I am sharing one model that we can come up with the bricks, it looks really good, especially good when we think about the price, after all, good pricing will definitely affect customer satisfaction, right?
Completed model - Treasure Island
The Good Guy
The bad guy
Left overs (which should be usable in other alternative models)
Parts that worth a second look, I think this set/book is also a good source for some useful parts
