Next week I will have to deliver a full-day conference for 100+ participants. With the Landscape Kit still “on hold” I had to come to a different solution how to deliver the programme. I simply visited our local LEGO reseller and created the kits myself. In the end it was not too difficult. You may go to Brickset website and check what elements does it consist of (some of them are missing, though): http://www.brickset.com/detail/inventory/?Set=2000415-1. Thereafter it was possible to pull the components from a few different Lego Education sets, a couple of Lego Duplo sets, some elements from Lego Wheels and separate Minifigures sets.
There are some, which don’t seem to be easily available in other sets, though – e.g. connecting cables, flexible pins, spiderwebs, fences. And some of them were out of stock – e.g. sets with ratchets, gates, skeletons. So I ended up missing all of those.
The solution was slightly more expensive and some bits were missing. But all in all I feel that the DIY set seems to be adequate for the entire day of playing as an alternative to the original Landscape Kit. After the conference I will take some time and post you more detailed info on:
– what kits I decided to use and
– what I missed from the original set during the day.
Has anybody else done the same?
