The winner for the best Atlantis set for me, The fact it has lots of acceseries included inside ,it has the ability to transform from sub to command centre and the playability is very good especially when conbined with sea creature sets.

[ID] Released alongside 5 Papermate pens of varying colors (Black,blue or red) in a pencil case for the price of IDR 75.000.
Bricklist notes
The weakest Atlantis set of 2010. This set is tiny,puny and weak and even for £3 barely contains any thing. Just 13 small pieces which build a manta figure and some random piece of rock. Eventhough it is a good way to get the manta fig the atlantis mini set for the diver is much better.

The best designed kingdom set 2010. This set shows what a lego castle should exacly look and be like. This set highly resembles many old model castle from the 1980's and so on and has plenty of detail and interior and action a castle and kingdom should have.

Well the only set in the kingdom range that does not really reach the outstanding rating. It's not an awful set but it is certainly the lowest rater with it being over priced ,small and a few design flaws including the catapult fire landing directly on the tower flag burning it down over the intruders coming.

A definate winner for the best 2010 city set and maybe even the best city set so far. The sets design on the inside and outside is practically perfect and unlike many in the 2010 range the set's value for money is pretty good.

Remaking the fire collection the third time in five was not a good idea especially when lego city is need of many more public services which includes a new hospital. The set is slightly bigger than the 2007 but is very small and limited in what can happen with it. It is too repetitive of older models and has no sense of uniqueness.

It's not wonder this is the best figure in series 2. Lego have never ever done a roman mini figure before and now that they have this guys playability is very unlimited.

A ultimate follow on from the 2009 family house. This smaler town house is packed with neat detail form top to bottum and is the perfect setting apart from it is probably too big scale compared to the other city house sets.

Stunning figures,Huge room to play and the release of one of the most recognisable lego themes around it is no wonder this set gets thumbs up for the best Harry potter set of 2010. It has everything a potter fan wants.

Well by a finger nail this one is the worst potter set. This may relate to the fact the older version had a bit more character, it is more expensive the last one and the fact the piller is a bit poorly designed but it is not an epic fail set though.
