This set came out in October 2011 and ever since then, I've been dreaming of owning it. Every single time I saw this on the shelf, I would tell myself I would own this one day and I'll get to build it. I even included it as one of my goals for 2015. This is one of my posts back in January 2015:
1/3 hahaha. Not bad. Anyways, it took a while for my to get it because I was so focused on building my Brick Town, but for my birthday, I decided I would get it. I went to the Lego store and was so ready to buy it, but my mom surprised me by getting it for me for me as a birthday present! When I held it in front of her, she even asked me, "Haven't you been wanting this for so long?" You were right, mother. Way too long! I was way too happy! While exiting the store, I even raised it in the air and shouted, "YES!!!" I had work that day, so i had to wait for such a long time just to go home and build it. Hahahaha. But can you imagine the excitement while I was on my way home?
Building this was too much fun. I learned more tips and tricks and of course, watching it come into form was even more exciting. I couldn't believe I finally had this set. Lego has stopped producing this one, so in a year or so, it's going to be a rare find. I'm happy to be one of those people who got to invest on this set.
