An upgraded City in the clouds

 Cloud City play set, by marshall, on EB

 

Although I adore the original Cloud City set (10123), I’ll admit that it has some limitations.  To be honest it’s not the most accurate of designs; but considering that it’s only 698 parts and over 10 years old, that’s understandable.  In short, it’s well-overdue for an upgrade, and whilst we wait for it EB’s marshall has been working on his own version.  At around 1500 parts, it’s twice the size of the original, and comprises all of the key sections seen during the film.  I particularly like that marshall has integrated the original city wall and duelling platform into it, which helps to give it an instant ‘classic’ feel. The elevated landing platform is a great touch, but perhaps it could be a bit larger.
