The red carpet is cool and the downstairs has that "airy" feel you would expect from a cinema, the brick built doors are really clever (a la town hall but better in my view). some nice new parts - tan profile bricks, loads of dark tan (inc 1x8s), med blue plates, etc. the exterior of the upstairs is not that interesting but you can get through it pretty quickly (so not unlike GE), leaving the canopy and the lettering until book 3 was great as it kept up the excitement. The interior is spacious and still leaves some room, might want to think about modding it slightly and adding a few extra touches
Stickers are ok - so on the windows they could have made a white or black "glass" panel and printed on it, but once you've got the stickers applied to both sides I can't see it being a big issue. In the frames they should keep stuck, too. The one on the movie screen is the only one toyed with not sticking, but who wants to watch a blank screen...
For me the limo is the worst bit, just lacks any real proportion and doesn't have enough detail, eg relative to the fire truck or the snow plough in the WVC.
Overall it has a nice mid size feel, which I suppose supports the price tag, particularly relative to the town hall.
Sorry, waffling on - almost a mini review ;-) .. so I'd say go for it!
Bought mine at the Bellevue, WA store on the 14th. Only issue I had was one of the 1x6 black arches for the car was bent completely in half. Never have seen that before :)
Serenity is probably going to be playing on opening night :)
I ended up creating a lobby display with the brick separator...
but i have not the slightest idea where to start and how to make sticker :/
