The double-storey Japanese style building has a shop on the first floor selling steaming buns.
You can see striking signs, lush plants in this authentic setting.
The loft bedroom on second floor offers some small but exquisite furniture to enjoy.
Packing: Original Box
This was one of the most enjoyable builds I've done in a long time. The kit comes in a beautiful box of heavy material. Bags are numbered One for the lower level and Two for the Upper level. My kit was complete and the pieces fit together well, for the most part, but nothing that couldn't be managed. Two issues I found with the build. First the instructions have you use a cap to mount the light boom to the power poll. The cap just isn't a good fit for the boom. If there is another cap with a larger hole...I missed it. I did see others having trouble with this same step. I used the little short peg instead of the cap and it fits perfectly and I had enough of them. Secondly, as others have mentioned, the power pole is pulled by the two black power lines and bends the pole and kinda ruins a very nice detail of the build. I fixed it, for the most part, by inserting a wire into both black power lines. I used the ground wire from an piece of romex I had and it fit perfectly. I was then able to bend the power lines in a bit and take some of the pressure of the pole. Not a perfect fix, but makes it look a lot better. Overall the kit is wonderful. Love all the details from the buns and vending machine to the little air conditioners on the exterior of the building. This was truly a wonderful design by Tong Xin Jun. I have already purchased the Coffee Shop and am looking forward to another enjoyable build. Thank you CaDA...more designs like this please. Cheers
the design of the build is fantastic, exe sandbox did an amazing job. the building experience was better than i expected. there were numbered bags, good instructions and a nice box. my only problem with set was the tolerances of some of the pieces. some pieces had trouble fitting together (the street light didn’t fit at all) and others were a little loose. overall i would recommend this set, it is definitely worth the price.
Great quality bricks, great instructions. Pairing this with a brick Spinner for a Blare Runner display :)
This was a lot of fun to build. Lot's of neat details and unique ideas. The LEDs included is a really nice touch.
That little Building is simply awesome. Nice detailed, indoor and outdoor. I love the lighting.
And all this in a great quality.
The package took 11 days to deliver from ShenZhen to Vancouver. I was very surprised by the quality of the bricks. The plastic didn't feel cheap, and the price was justified. Instructions were clear, and the build was straightforward. (THE ORANGE CAT WAS NOT INCLUDED, THAT WAS MY OWN)
Excellent build, love the detail. Would love if the led strip started with solid light, instead of it being the last option in the various patterns. Additionally a softer pulse would be great for emulating candlelight.
It was a great build in general, I really loved every minute of it. The lighting kit was also super easy to deal with compared to some other after market Lego light kits. I could tell this set was designed to use the lights. Great work on that! The pieces were all there. My only gripe is that the bags, although labeled 1 and 2, was not very organized. You had to open every single back of 1 to have all the pieces for the first steps. That was a bit annoying so make sure you have lots of table space. Other than that, Excellent kit. I recommend it.
took a few weeks to arrive but it came in good condition and as described
I love the design and the aesthetics. There is a lot of detail in places I wouldn't have expected, like the vending machine with an empty slot. I think some of overall construction steps could have used another pass. Things like the building sign are made in such a way that only 3 or 4 studs connect it to the building. The corners were also single stud pillars that felt either unsupported or were barely attached. The set feels like it could have benefited from being a few studs wider and a few studs deeper. There were unfortunately a few pieces missing from my set, mainly some of the smooth pieces used for the building exterior, so have some spare pieces around you can make use of. Overall, I do like the set and enjoyed building it. I would recommend it for a unique design not seen from other companies.
