I wasn't very interested in this set until I saw the first photos. It is really amazing what WorldWorks has accomplished. I'm trying to find ways of working the ship into one of my games, but even if I can't think of one, it will be worth it just to have it on display.
The innovative addition of transparencies really add to the look of the set. WorldWorks just keep outdoing themselves.
Also, the customizable lower deck walls and "hot-swappable" sails add an unexpected element of customization to what one would think was a single, static model.
