FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 8

One of the best looking Creator sets out there!!. The box tells me BUY ME AND BUILD ME!!. Great job marketing this set. 

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 2

Ive seen every piece that this set has to offer. This set is a basic creator set has every basic piece that you can find in any set. There is only one "unique" piece that I can see and that is the ship "photo" that is part of the interior of the cabin.  And with only 1 minifigure that is about as boring as the pieces themselves, there is not much to say.  Mini fig has plain red top, and plain blue bottom. They could have spiced him up with a design on his shirt or SOMETHING!!

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 3

I hate to be dissapointed with any LEGO set that i build, and to tell you the truth i havent! Untill this set.  It looked like it would be fun and enjoyable to build, but what a dissapointment!  The only reason i gave this set a 3 is because i enjoy building ANYthing lego has to offer, and since i built this set.. Anyways unlike the MONSTER FIGHTERS, ATLANTIS, CASTLE, and even the GALAXY SQUAD sets there is not one thing about this set that i really enjoyed building.  It felt like it was just slopped together with a bunch of random pieces that where thrown in a box. Sorry LEGO but you did not hit the mark here

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 3

THANK GOD Toys "R" Us does price matching cause i paid 39.99 for the set just like the LEGO.COM site lists it for.  If i paid full retail price (at TRUS) i might have said it was missing pieces and asked for my money back or purchased another set that was worth the money.  Yes this set has 550 pieces but for 40 bucks it would have been nice to have a complet mountain instead of a montain that has no back to it

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 6

I have built many creator sets and the THEME itself is fantastic! The winter scenes are great and a real joy once they are built. 

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 2

I have seen this set in every Toys "R" Us, and even in my local dolar store where i purchase most of my legos. EBAY has a TON of them, and they are still not sold out on LEGO.COM. so not a very exclusive set

PACKAGING | Score: 9

Standard LEGO packaging. Brought me back to my younger years because there wasnt the 1,2,3,etc bag. Just dump all the bags and pick as you build. 

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 3

Since i am answering the questions here. This set will Probably depreciate or at least keep the MSRP after EOL. but i can not imagine this set itself gaining any real notiriety on the market

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 5

At first this set is cool to see to the untrained eye of the un-lego collector but being as i have over 100 sets on display at my house this one is definately not an eye catcher persay

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 2

If you can score this set as a gift or for about 15 bucks less than MSRP than certainly accept or purchase! LEGO sets are LEGO sets and any set is great to add to a collection. But if your just dying to run out and grab it, there are many other sets to purchase before this one. the cabin itself is nice when closed, but it has a green floor inside, there is no floor just grass. so i guess if you keep the cabin closed and the mountain against a wall while being displayed it isnt all that bad. But deffinately NOT one of my favorite.  It makes me sad because i actually was excited when i first seen this set on LEGO.COM
