Firstly, apologies if this has been talked about before.
Secondly, this is NOT one of those annoying "should I buy this, or this?" questions.
I'm in the process of trying to build the modulars.
So far I have the Grand Emporium, Palace Cinema, Parisian Restaurant and Detectives Office.
I've been trying to find the older modulars, Cafe Corner, Green Grocer, Fire Brigade, and Town Hall, but I have come to realise that these are just out of my price range at the moment.
So, with that in mind, the only other building is the Pet Shop. I can still buy this at retail price in stores, but I don't really like the look of it. It's just personal opinion. I understand why some people will disagree. I don't really want to buy it unless I have to (if that makes sense).
My question though, is would it be worth buying it now while it's still affordable, just because?
Or, can I afford to ignore it because I haven't got any of the older and more expensive buildings?
If I did buy it, I'd more than likely leave it sealed in the box for a while, and build it when I had nothing else to build, or while I was saving for another set I really want.
I'm still new to the world of collecting Lego, so would be grateful for some insight from the community.
