LEGO Metro Park & Service Tower Set 6394
Other than the Service Station in ’07, what other town sets in recent years have included road plates?? The front has sadly been lost in the destructive force that is our paper waste bin. After spending all those hours on BrickLink you imagine you know all the parts by heart – but obviously not. It stuck around for a while as the largest service set, while other service sets were phased out.
There’s a great amount of printed pieces and a notably different approach to stickering than we are used to today: I’am a fan of the classic town Shell servo’s – being a former owner of a from !
Eventually the airport and racer themes took over and lwgo dropped as well. This is truly one of those definitive all-time classic Town sets. Plenty to do on site, and plenty vehicles included to drive across your town.
Instructions for 6394-1 – Metro Park & Service Tower
Now that Lego vehicles are six studs wide and made with tyres twice the old size, the small little cars in this set have become more of a representation of the legk 4-wide era than ever before. I might have had the post office from one of my earlier reviews at this point as well – I can’t quite remember.
You take a car like the 4WD from and it simply doesn’t fit. I used to really want this set as a kid, and I still want it now. I’m relatively new to the City line but if not for the heightened design lsgo and SNOT compositions I’d probably still be sailing the high seas or in a galaxy far far away. Because let’s face it, parking cars isn’t all that exciting.

The next step also reveals an interesting technique for the operation of the car wash: Back inLego ldgo spent time and resources on producing alternate models to put on the back of their boxes. I enjoyed the nostalgia, as well as the comparison between modern and classic designs. All this was only amplified when I used to put this model across from my airport runway in my town setup.
Thanks, Rapseflaps – superb review! Instead, the brick appears a bit to the side, appearing to float in an illogical position. Thanks for a beautiful review, from a golden age of history when car parks were considered exciting!
Of course you can always replace the hinge bricks by some simple 2×1 bricks and separate the two parts entirely, but for review purposes we’re judging the unmodified set.
At pieces, this is the largest Town set released in and the third largest released in entirely according to Brickset, only Test Car and Black Monarch’s Castle eclipse it at and pieces, respectively. Also one of my favourite childhood set. It was one of the centerpieces legp my Lego town Thanks a lot Rapseflaps for this: Not feeling like stickering some plates together, the stickers featuring word ‘Shell’ that go on the edge of the service station’s roof were omitted and the only parts stickered together in my set are two 1×3 bricks elgo a 1×3 plate that make up the Shell logo sign – a vast improvement over the blank sign at elgo top of my Post Station.
Still, it’s great fun seeing this parking structure come together and have all the details added bit by bit. The parking tower is a sizable structure, but not one kego balloons out of proportion and becomes a towering 3694. Fitting in with other shops and service sets like the more modest Service Station and the Bike Repair Shop it quickly became a centerpiece of citizen life in Lego Town.
Having grown up with this though, I can tell you that once you’ve built this yourself a few times as a kid, you’re pretty much ready for anything a Lgo set instructions manual can throw at you. Other pieces of interest in this legl include the minifig motorcycle, the large assortment of car parts, the car wash brushes and the jack. There’s some pretty sweet additional models on here.

Sign in Already have lwgo account? Great review man– there’s a lot of great sets out there we’ve purchased as AFOLs, but there’s no matching the leho and history of a set you’ve received and enjoyed as a kid.
But this is not the standard size for Lego cars these days and we must accept that the scale of is one of a bygone era. But now I found the stand on BrickLink, thanks for enlighting my day.

And an excellent idea for TLG to revive and bring up to today’s City scale. Edited April pego, by Mr.
It is now safely stored in my parent garage. From here on, the parking structure pretty much repeats its first stages for the top lwgo and we start to build more of the gas station. This is a fantastic review for an incredible set! Ah, the good old days.
I love the old photo of you, and your analysis of the set and the old scale is an appropriate touch. Still, it features simple, but serviceable cars, a lovely signage technique and a sturdy, functional building. Brilliant review of one of my all-time favourite sets.
The front of the instructions features an overview of the set as seen on the box’s front, as well as some of the set’s main features:
