Also, some were asking about additional tracks. LEGO has them here:

I hate those flex tracks, but used the straights with this set and had a perfect fit. You could also look for a larger train set and get most if not all of these items in a big bundle, with extra bricks for more train cars like some were suggesting.

hope this helps!
THANK YOU

Anybody know a good Facebook site to go to that trades minifigures or sells them? I found a pretty decent one but it seems like most traders/sellers are across the pond...

Amazon is having a crazy sale on Lego stuff if anyone is interested. I got a Star Wars Captain Rex Walker for $74.99 opposed to the normal $119.00. Right now it is listed for $77.59. Still a darn good price. But there is a bunch of other stuff on there as well. Really good deals...

Anybody got one of the Fallingwater architecture sets that isnt opened and they want to sell? Was trying to find one for a reasonable price for our family gift exchange. My cousins husband is an architect so seemed like a good fit.

Would be very hard to find a sane person selling an unopened one under $100, :wink:

Kind of what I thought. I havent bought legos in 10 years so have no idea what these types of sets go for. Thanks! Think I might just go flatiron building and NYC then.

Yeah that is the first set in the entire series, going to be difficult to find a new one for any kind of deal, let alone an open one. If you are looking at NYC stuff, the flatiron is a great one, I prefer it over the skyline, but if they don't have any other architecture models from the series, the skyline ones are great because they are usually 4 iconic buildings in a single set.

Totally forgot, but that Fallingwater set was my first attempt at a LEGO stop-motion video:



Ugh, got it down much better after that one, but still fun to look back at.
