I have the first four sets; the booklet is just building instructions with a page of information (size, year of constructions, etc.), nothing special, really.
A note about building these yourselves... it's definitely possible to get most, if not all, of the pieces on BL... the problem is getting them in the color you want from as few places as possible, otherwise you get slaughtered on the shipping and handling anyway. And there were a few pieces I ran across that are VERY uncommon.
If you wanted to cheap out (not that there's anything wrong with that) and build it on your own, then I'd truly just go ahead and build it on your own with the pieces you have.
I did find some instructions for the first two sets online before I actually had the sets. Google "21000 instructions" or "21001 instructions."
Probably the hardest to actually get the pieces for would be Seattle Space Needle, it's got two odd technic pieces with three axles and an axle hole.... and I couldn't find the hoses in the correct color.
