Lego doesn't have many Japanese themed sets, so it's great that Cada has a few of these buildings. I like the small footprint of the buildings and also the included lighting inside. This was my first Cada set, and then I got the japanese themed coffee shop by the same designer. full review on my blog.
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)
I really enjoyed this, it's a fantastic kit, super detailed! I used the tip that a previous reviewer suggested for the plastic tubes that link the building with the electricity pole and it works perfectly. I will definitely buy another building from the series.
It‘s a fantastic design in a very good quality! Amazing! Realy very cool small building with a lot of details! Love it!
