Re-creating Cafe Corner and Green Grocer.
I've just bought my first modular:Fire Brigade and I must say I love this type of set. Even though I let Green Grocer and Cafe Corner slip because I had no idea of the retiring rules for LEGO until a few months ago, I intend to collect all of them. Before Xmas I'll buy Pet Shop and Grand Emporium, but let's face it: paying $1200 for a set like Cafe Corner is out of question.
I have a bunch of pieces from parted Creator sets and PAB walls, not to mention a few XXL 5512 boxes I can pick parts from, so how hard would it be to rebuild Cafe Corner and Green Grocer by using parts like that and getting what's missing off of Bricklink?
Last night I went through the PDF instructions and realized that Cafe Corner may be a bit easier to do, but Green Grocer looks like it has a bunch of special colors and different molds. Has anyone ever tried that kind of thing? I think it will be a fun project to work on the coming months and I may end up with some rebuilt retired sets. What do you guys think?
