Not entirely true. Some IDEAS sets have had stickers, for example Old Fishing Store for some door prints.

Good point. That's the one set I haven't built yet. I've only got the one and that's signed as well so may well not get round to the pleasure of building that at all...

OK. I'll admit defeat. :-)

Central Perk was one that I would never buy anyway. I'm one of the few that's never seen a single episode.

Swap the supports out for the transparent Technic beams and it will look excellent.

Or wait until Wicked Brick come out with one which will be even better.

anyone know of a great source for the transparent technic beams?  they make great stands

I'm in for 2 (one to build, one to keep).  There's a nice thing going with the Ideas ISS, Ideas Saturn V, Ideas Women of NASA, and the Creator Expert Lunar Lander.

It's interesting how this compares to Central Perk...

I'm not either.  I feel like they either underpriced Central Perk or overpriced ISS.  Usually a set with a license costs more than those without.  Usually a set with more pieces (not always) costs more than a set with less pieces.  Was trying to also point out that Central Perk includes a full 7 minifigures and still comes in $10 less than ISS.  Both are Ideas sets there shouldn't be any difference there.

It's the Lego 'This is going to be a very popular set' tax.

That's probably it, I suppose.

My conclusion is Friends is a no-brainer buy in the US as in Europe the price points are exactly the opposite with ISS being cheaper.

Interestingly, ISS is cheaper in some other countries than Germany, the usual lowest  RRP marker.

I think it'll be key to just get them as cheap as possible. Both will do fine.

All 70€ IDEAS sets were great if bought at a discount. 21313 is my best performing set right now (a waaay overpriced set imo). And I think these 2 are way better sets at 70€, can't go wrong with a 35% discount.

This picture of a patch has been floating around.  I still have two patches from the Lunar Lander, this will be neat to add to the collection.

I think I'm planning on getting three of this ISS set on Day 1 (unless qty 2 restriction applied).  One to build, one to keep, and one for a birthday gift.

This is live with patch, In case you spaced it.

Patch appeared in my cart even though I didn't have this in it.  Hopefully it'll come with the order.
