Honorable mention goes to the Grand Carousel, super impressive, but so fragile and has a few other issues.
The GC is very fragile and has issues with its movement at times, but it is still fantastic. Check the Aftermarket prices; that should tell you all you need to know ;)
It's an outstanding model and playset which is motorised and includes a sound brick and minifigures; what more could you ask for!
One reason why I have not sold my one sealed in box. Same with the #10210 Imperial Flagship
The ferris wheel for me is currently at the top. It is a must have set for me. The last time that happened was with the Haunted House.
Nothing can top the grand carousel, One of the best sets of all time. Still regret not buying it 3/4 years ago,was thinking about it for weeks but somehow I fell back into my dark ages. 2nd would be the vw van for me.
From the modular houses the detective,s office is by far my favorit. Parisian restaurant looks amazing,maybe even better then detective,s office but for me the set is missing something. It doesn't sparkle my imagination and it doesn't make me think of all sorts of fun scenarios. The detective's office does and that's why for me its easily the best modular. Also love the setting and style.
the detective office is reminiscent of many movies, and features several cliches. of course it's missing alcohol bottles. don't know what's the deal with it, they didn't replace bottles of rhum with candies in pirates of the carribean.
The detective's office is my favorite modular building. I wish I had it.
Anyway, I think my favourite Creator Expert set is probably #10243 Parisian Restaurant. I love #10246 Detective's Office but the interior detail of the Parisian Restaurant just about wins it for me.
I think you took a better approach than I did. I bought the entire first line of the LotR sets when my first son was born. They are his as far as I'm concerned. Of course, he's barely 3, so I haven't given them to him just yet. I figure he can wait a few more years before getting Orcs and Uruk-hai and swords and axes and...
Son #2 is coming in 1 month. I may go a little calmer for him. Maybe the Ferris Wheel.
If anyone remembers (how could they not) I commemorated by 2nd child by turning the Haunted House pink. I think the Pink Haunted House turned out to be even more scary :)
