Personally not a fan of the trend towards the 'skylines'

It sacrifices details IMO

I agree with this somewhat, and was pretty against the skylines at the start, but they are growing on me.

Really, I still collect them since they are part of the Architecture line, so I begrudgingly purchased them. Was really bummed about the ones like New York and Sydney that already had models from the line repeated...but after having built them all and having them lined up on a shelf, they look really nice like that.

I'll say that some of the detail in the larger/taller buildings on these is on par with the original $20 buildings they released (sears tower, etc)

I think the skylines are great. I have a few, but haven't pulled the trigger on the pricer ones yet. They're fun and clean and look decent on display.

Looks like its taller than the prev one and more in line with newer stuff, just bothers me that I have two versions of the same building when there are soooooo many more buildings they haven't done yet.

but yeah, the first one with all the cylinders kinda sucked.

Anyone seen any shots of the new Architecture Statue of Liberty? curious how it will compare to the one they did 15 years ago or so...
The new Burj is great. Fun build. Yes, the cylinders one did suck.
Built it last night, above and beyond the prev version in every way! Taller than I expected too lol

Looking to sell a AT-AT set unopened. What's the best place to do so?

Some people use a scale. Because of the accessories and whatnot, they all weigh slightly different.
