During the design of Café Corner (and presumably with the other sets in the series), the designer had to work closely with the building instructions team due to some of the “unorthodox techniques” that he used “which have not been tried before in official Lego sets.”
“As with any sort of collectible, the safe storage of the collectible is very important,” Ed Mack explains in a piece on How to make money from Lego . “Although the actual Lego brick is pretty much indestructible under normal conditions, the Lego boxes and instructions need special care.”

The LEGO Modular Buildings series continues with this spectacularly detailed 3-story department store, designed in a realistic scale with lots of special building techniques and rare pieces. On the street outside, citizens carry shopping bags, send letters at the mailbox, admire the window mannequins, then cool off at the ice cream stand while a busy window washer works above. Enter through the revolving doors to discover a ground-floor clothing department, complete with a cash register, fitting room, hats, jewelry, perfume, and even a selection of spare trousers. A brick-built escalator carries customers to the second floor housewares department with glassware and golden plates for special occasions, and then it’s up to the top floor for the toy department (complete with toy house and push-scooter) with an impressive chandelier above the open atrium. Up on the roof are a billboard and skylight.
@yys4u: I understand the desire to be complete, but if cost is really an issue, I would suggest doing as colethegeek says: buy the current ones at the more reasonable retail price, since they’ll be enough for an impressive street scene. After that, if you still desire the out of print sets, you can begin on those, and hopefully your financial situation is improved. Also, I would focus on getting Cafe Corner and Green Grocer and pass on Market Street.
YES!!! they are amazing to build, the detail is great, and the ones that are out now are pretty cool. I have the cinema, pet shop, and emporium, but I would say the pet shop was the most fun. I am planning on getting the restaurant and the detective agency next spring, but I also know a couple shops that sell old sets, so if they not outrageous, I will pick up the town hall and fire brigade (really bummed that I missed out on this one. 2 weeks after I bought the 3 I have, they retired it).
This one certainly isn’t for the faint of heart, but for fantasy geeks or lovers of J.R.R. Tolkien (or the films based on his work), Lego’s Lord of the Rings series has some seriously awesome constructions available for design, and our favorite is the Tower of Orthanc set. This tower will be immediately recognizable to any Tolkien fan who’s read the books and seen the movies—it’s featured heavily throughout the series, and is an important part of Middle Earth’s lore. The price isn’t cheap—at $269, you’re dropping some serious cash for the ability to build a pretty cool set. But at 2,300 pieces, six detailed floor designs within the tower itself, a light bright included within the piece, five minifigures, and a tower measure over 2 feet tall, we think this is one of the coolest sets you can buy for your inner nerd, or for someone who simply loves the movies or book series. Lord of the Rings is a series of novels and movies that will never fade from popularity; both are so well-constructed, they’ll only grow in popularity throughout the next few decades as more and more people embrace fantasy works. So why not grab a piece of Rings lore, and build the Tower of Orthanc. It’s unfortunately a discontinued set, so hurry over to Amazon before they run out and another set drives up to thousands of dollars on eBay.

My grandson, six years old, put this together by himself, these toys add so much to children’s lives. It gets them off of the computer and building with their hands. He is six and is able to follow the directions, I think following directions is a skill that many children miss in their younger years. These toys are good not only for their dexterity it makes them think about what comes next.

It’s still a lot of work though, and you have to be careful of prices. Like Puripnon said, the vast majority of pieces are relatively affordable. However, there are some pieces that cost a lot due to being out of production or what not. You will still save quite a bit of money than you would have if you had just bought the set outright.
I don’t think that’s a real issue though. Technic figures (I have one..somewhere) could also be disassembled (iirc.. if not, mine’s broken) and could be shipped in his original parts. I don’t think it would be terribly expensive. I estimate the cost for TLG to be less than $2, more likely less than $1.
