There were also a couple of the airport sets: #60102 Airport VIP Service and #60103 Airport Air Show. I am still not sure I will be picking any of these sets.
I did not notice any volcano sets, but I was not looking for them.
This is in spite of the fact that we have no floor space for trains. Not sure what's happened to make that happen. Still scratching my head over it but fancied them so they are bought!

Soccer is boring - as it doesn't involve using our opposable thumbs.
btw Both type are boring.
the only time i can sit and watch "English" Football is when England are playing in the world Cup and are in to the last 8. and then i not watching for the game i watching in the hope that England win and bring home the cup.
i do have a question how can you call a game that has less then 20% of plays when someone kicks the ball, Football?
i can see it being called "smash-heads ball". or "throw-and-kick ball."
or "lets-try-to-smash-the-other-players-bones ball."
but i can not work out how a game that plain as day started out as "Rugby" got called "Football"?
I just like the idea that Lego can turn their attention to practically anything and come up with a good product.
or £13 of boosted clubcard Vouchers.
or if you count the £5.59 i had on my amazon giftcard.
not the best price. but i wish to have this Now. and i am no longer willing to wait on it.
this will also give me all 4 set's in last years spaceport theme.
Originally "American football" was like a blend of soccer and rugby, with use of both the hands and feet to move the ball. At that time it was mostly played between colleges and the rules weren't exactly codified, so what rules were used depended on which college was hosting the game. Over time more and more schools dropped the soccer-like rules in favor of more rugby-like rules, but the name "football" stuck.
Going back even further, there are theories that the term "football" might've originally emerged not specifically to refer to games where you kick a ball, but to any ball game played on foot (as opposed to ball games played on horseback, like polo). Wikipedia has more info on this.
Side note, the word "soccer" was originally Oxford slang for association football, same as "rugger" for rugby. You can't blame us Americans for that one!
I think, it's a bargain. What do you think?
hope you have fun with them, and if you do a display of the set's all in one place. i love to see an image!
€20 doesn't sound too bad except I can't even pay for a Bricklink order because my credit card is maxed...yikes!
But it may be just the push I need to ask for a raise in work - however with my negotiation skills (or lack thereof), I'll prob end up coming away with a decrease in my salary :-(
but last time i looked they was not made from lego.
