I picked up this set the day I went to The LEGO Movie. There were a few parts I was interested in. I built the set and brought it to the TwinLUG meeting. It's a $29.99 set with 274 pieces. That makes each part just over 11 cents each. Not too bad. Some of the parts are kind of nice and worth that extra little bit. Most of the parts are white, some are common and less interesting and some are pretty good, like the dozen 1x1 bricks with a stud on the side or the 4 macaroni bricks. I always like keeping a good stock of macaroni bricks around and I use more of the bricks with studs on their sides all the time. There's some nice bit of pearl gold and a fair number of medium blue parts. I'm a big fan of both colors and don't mind having more parts. I particularly like that new decoration part in the upper left picture. It comes in three other colors: metallic silver, reddish brown and pinkish. It's a great addition the architecture stock or an ice cream stand. The little decoration for the horse's head is kind of interesting. You get two of them in the set.
You get a carriage and a horse, a fountain and a little romantic seating area. The carriage was ok but not great. I thought there were a few spots that could have been improved with a part or two. It does capture the pumpkin shape and I do like the medium blue color. It was those 1x4 slopes with the silver printing on the face of them are quite nice. I'm not sure what I want to do with them yet but now I have 16 of them to play around with. There are 4 of the same slope but they have no printing on them. There's a bit of a darker purple color and some pinkish shade that Brickset calls light purple.
Here's the description of the set from Brickset.

All in all a nice bit of stuff to add to the pile. I doubt I would need to buy another. Maybe if I see one marked down. You never know.
