FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 7

Fun build.

Made this set with my two 5 year olds. Loved the bus, that is a great feature that hasn't been seen for years. The pizzeria is nice,  I wonder though how customers get to the next floor, as there are no stairs :-)

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 7

All figs are exclusive to this set, however not very remarkable.

Good:

Printed mini cash register 

Printed pizza's

2 bikes

2 skateboards

Great:

it has a bus that seats 5 plus driver

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 9

It's not difficult to build, fun to do with kids.

Very playable and can be combined with other city or modular buildings.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 8

It has 483 pieces and Five mini figures, retail price was about €50. 

Considering the fun we had, I'd say excellent value.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 8

This set can be combined with the modular buildings or any other Lego city set. City is always popular but not always that collectible.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 7

I have given this set a 7 exclusivity as it has been rumored it will return in store with a different product number in September 2013. Otherwise it's a 8.People are looking for it complement their sets.

PACKAGING | Score: 7

Packaging is not really exciting. Numbered bag a couple of books. 

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 8

Depending on whether it returns, the growth wilL be influenced. on brick set they are talking about an exact copy returning to stores.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 7

Set displays very well in childrens room. Some of the attributes can be used to enhance existing city's.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8

Great set, very flexible in the way it can be combined. As it has been used extensively and I only have the one set, I'll be happy to see it return. Not great for investors  with a bulk in supply.
