That chopper looks to be good fodder for some MOCs, may have to pick up a couple of those. . .

I'm underwhelmed by this assortment. Nothing really stands out as a 'must have' to me. The truck with the helicopter looks like a CITY set. The log cabin is cute, but not really calling my name.

I very much like the plane, digger and trailer. They look like fun builds. or, at least, fun to keep about on the deal.

The truck with helicopter would be too small for city. Other than that, I'd have to completely agree with you, and I normally like the Creator houses.

Are the slopes on that Log Cabin dark red? They look dark red compared to the minifig's hat and the "flowers" out front.

I'm under the impression that they are dark red. I like the cabin (well, I like the idea of being able to get lots of brown bricks, the arches for the tree, and the drak red foor slopes all in one place). I hope that it isn't very expensive, given it's smaller size. Hopefully the inclusion of a minifigure doesn't seriously throw off the very favorable part to price ratio that we have previously seen in the Creator sets.

I love the little buggy. Reminds me of the RC10 I had as a kid.

Other than that... nothing really jumps out at me as a must have, for parts or as a set.

Oooo awesome log cabin, it looks like such a great "classic" crossover between LEGO and something like Lincoln Logs: nice without needing things shooting or 'sploding all over the place. I'm a fan of the smaller airplane Creator sets they've been putting out recently so that cargo-looking plane (?) is nice as well.

Reminds me of 4099 in style; I like it (but prefer the blue). The rest is all meh, although what I've seen of the other side of the log cabin is quite enticing. It's the usual 'house'-sized set (Beach House, Apple Tree House) with a twist, so it gets a thumbs-up from me :)
Neeeooowwwwww

I like that log cabin. I remember posting something about that when Lego asked what sets would you like to see.

I'll guess I'll have to go get one, then. :)
