    Cool contest. I’m not sure what I would build, but I’m looking forward to seeing the entries. I’m just not familiar enough with the show.

      I wouldn’t know either what to build, but the new set is surely amazing.

    I’m trying to wrap my brain around the Upside Down set. It’s so unique! Did any of you build it yet?

    • admin May 19, 2019, 11:52 PM

      Yes, my brother and his wife just built it. I will include their thought in my review later this week. 🙂

    I’m curious what people come up with. I’m also debating if I should get this set. It looks great, but it doesn’t really fit with my current setup.

      Yes, it’s really unique. It really needs its own shelf. 😀
