My Lego Train Station Version 3

After build of version 1.0 and 2.0, the train station version 3.0 is really. It come with nice decoration and interiors which are lacking in the first and second versions.

Version 3.0 - changes with the front window panels, blueish-grey to tan brick replacement and build interior (See below)
Version 2.0

Version 1.0

There isn't any details for the interiors in version 1.0 and 2.0. However, they come in version 3.0 (See below). In this version 3.0, there is a mini cafe in the station, a control rooms and the passengers seats.

This is the back view of version 3.0. As you can see, there are four rooms.

Room 1: the mini cafe. IT come with the drinks and a telephone booth.

Room2: the control station room 1, where there are monitoring panel to track train and  every corner of the train station.

Room 3: this is the control station room 2, where the operator can help the passengers.

Room 4: This is the passengers waiting area. There are a few seats for them to rest while waiting for their train.

Star Wars Planet Series 2: AT-ST & Endor 9679

Finally, have time to fix this Star Wars bought from the year end sales. This is from the Star wars Planet Series 2. It has a Forrest Moon of Endor, come with a AT-ST driver. This is a better set other than the x-wing in the Planet Series 2.

This is the Font view of the box. This planet is exposed for viewing and touch

This is the back view of the box set. It features what are the other set from the planet series 2

This is the side view.

Open box and inside found the instruction manual, the globe which is the moon and the bricks for the AT-ST and the driver

The parts for this AT-ST

Of course, like other planet series, it come with a printed plate which look pretty cool and professional.

Dat LA!! The complete set. The AT-ST is pretty touchy. Thus it is good for display and not very playable.
