LEGO Town Hall Review

After months of off and on work, I finally finished LEGO Town Hall. An impressive set overall, especially because of the size. I love the dark orange as a color, and think it works well for the building. It’s much taller than any of the other modular buildings which in a way is good, and in a way is bad. The other sets are very quaint with lots of detail. This set dwarfs them and can change the sense of overall scale. In the end – I definitely think it works.

It’s interesting to see this set come out after Pet Shop, which is such a different direction. Two smaller buildings vs one hulking one. Personally, I find the Pet Shop set offers more flexibility, you can add multiples to a setup and have them fit in. I bought two more sets of Pet Shop recently so that I can have a row of brownstones.

I like how the set had four male figures and four female figures. I feel like it is usually lopsided with too many male characters in most sets:

      Thanks! It’s a fun build, took me MONTHS though due to a busy work schedule.u00a0

    I have built the set too, and I have no idea what that large orange leftover piece is for. It seems too big to just be an accident?

      The large orange piece is a brick separator – a tool that you use when deconstructing LEGO.
