Yes, I am very happy with this haul, its colour scheme is awesome;)  Last year, I saw one on the Ebay Kleinanzeigen site (Germany), but it was way too expensive.

I have been looking for this set for over a year now. The minimum starting bid was 70€ and there still weren’t any bids. The buy-it-now price was 95€, so I said to myself “Okay, it’s now or never!”

I have a couple of grey and white antennas; these were included in some BASIC sets I bought a year ago for extra parts.

Excellent full review of this set, the alternative builds look great too!  

Do you have the box as well?

That stickers-sheet looks like an original Lego sheet, nice work:) I have the Paramedic Unit twice, both with the original stickers. On one, the stickers are in bad condition, on the other, the stickers are OK.

That 1687 box looks quite rare, dd you make a review of that one too?

It's not only the color scheme that is awesome, it's how the set was designed. If you "close" it, it makes a nice warehouse. This set is perfect open or closed. I would really love to see the prototypes they made to finish with this version. Germans were lucky to be able to buy it, along with 6383.

Unfortunately, I do not have the box, as it was for my birthday, we had to find one quickly, and I did not find one with box at good price, even one with box... It's hard to find one with box. However, I got 6383 with box in bad condition (missing inner box and folded). But I've taken care of it and it now looks better than when it arrived.

It's my fourth sheet since 2015. and as my skills improved, I now make stickers very close to the original. And it's cheaper (in money) than buying reproductions. But it's very costly in time, but this give me the great opportunit, to change myself size, colors and so on. So I think it worth the monthes passed working on it... I now have a "library" of more than 500 different stickers (offician and creation). Very useful to restore sets when original stickers are missing.
Paramedic Unit has so fine stickers, the agenda and the eye-test are so detailled... These were very good stickers for the era!

1687 was, to my knowledge, not (widely) sold in Europe, so it's more common in the US. But I know a Scandinavian version that a French purchased. He made a review on the biggest French Lego forum. It was a MISB set...
I will make a review at the very end of the year, I still do not have a lot of time.

Here's the seller picture of the poster I'e ordered, along with a lot of other papers... And in fact... paper is not cheap at all...
This poster is a German, released at Winter 1997 fot the Lego World Club. I represents a christmas scene with a Town look, althought it was gthe beginning of juniorized sets. I hope it will worth the price I've spent on delivery...

I'm also looking for making my first order of unrealeased parts. I have to finalize my order, and I should make it next week. There will be some green parts and other Dk Gray parts.

Wow, awesome poster! There is a lot going on there! Be sure to make some close-up photos when you got it:)

It reminds me of the inner flaps of the LEGO Advent Calenders (see attachments). These pictures are internet downloads.

I discovered that LEGO has some nice wallpapers on their website (free download):

Oh Ben, you are bringing me sweet memories! I recieve the City Advent Calendar since 2006, this year, it will be 11 years... You know, these things have changed a lot. At the beginning, the builds were nice things to add to your existing City, I loved it, having a phone boothor a mechanic table in 2006 (love them!), or having a pallet transporter in 2009, or a lot of toys in 2010. Things changed in 2011, when a lot of winter items were put at the place of things that could be added to the City. The advent Calendar, were not a "Big City add-on pack", it was just a thing to add to the winter village. The last "good" one was 2011 one with it's Police Station that was built in 4 days. I woiuld love to get a 2005 City calendar, I had a Playmobil one this year. So much memories...

As a kid, I opened the doors, as anyone, but since 3 years, I cut the side tape to avoid opening them. I was always sad to throw the Nevertheless, I always kept the part without the doors, but since 2010, these are just playing space (in 2009 too, but it was much better). So it reduce the layout surface. I always loved 2007 onbe, with all those Tr.Clear parts that I dod not know where they came from at the time. I got my answer later, they came from Billund's treasaures of unrealeased parts. By the was, keeping the Avdent calendars is rather difficult, because nothing can be placed inside. So each year, I worry about where storing them... I'm asking this question this year too...

Don't mind about pictures, you'll get very close ones. :) Poster was shipped today, so I should recieve it in a few days. So be prepared to see it the next weekend (not this one).
