(Sorry- I got this set several months ago and didn't really think to get pictures)
I'm not sure what the popularity of these brick buckets are when it comes to AFOLs/TFOLs, but I actually kind of like them to some extent.

Being a town builder, part of the reason I got this set was for the bulk amounts of normal rectangular bricks and roof slopes (You can never have neough of those when building a town). There's also a nice selection of doors and windows.

One thing that bothered me though (And is somtimes common in these buckets) was the lack of minifigs.
I don't really dig the 'box people' that are used to replace them, but I suppose they're there to show kids you don't need X part to build an X model.

The instructions are have lots of inspiration pages that gave me a few ideas when building my town I posted here not long ago.
The best model in the instructions is the trailer house. It just looks so dern realistic!

Overall, a nice set if you're looking for something to expand your town with, and also reccomended for kids with many colors and simple building instructions.

Now for the ratings.

Ratings (on a scale of 1 to 10):

Parts: 7/10 (Most are for houses and not much else)
Minifigs: 0/10 (No minifigs)
Detail: 6/10 (As I mentioned, some of the models are pretty realistic)
Playability: 6/10
Price to parts: 9/10 (674 for $24.99 can't be wrong!)
OVERALL RATING: 8/10

Thanks for reading!
