Parts of the Set
The Market Area of the set measures approximately 12 cm (4.75") wide and 5.5 cm (2.25") deep. The market stall measures approximately 7 cm (2.75") high. It features a bench with a crooked back and a bin in front of it. The lid of the bin swings open and can conceal one coin and a revolver. There is also a small market stall with a pile of coins and a mug inside, and a small door by the bench to enter. Attached to the side of the stall is a plate which holds a banana and two cherries.
This part of the set it based upon the market that Sherlock Holmes follows Irene Adler through at the start of the 2011 film. Holmes, wearing a disguise, was lying seemingly asleep on a bench. The bin with the revolver and coin is for playability. There were many market stalls that they passed and one of the same style and design as the one is this set it very briefly seen as Holmes catches up to Adler.
The sarcophagus part of the set measures approximately 6.5 cm (2.5") long, 5 cm (2") wide, and 3 cm (1.25") high. It features an egyptian sarcophagus with a skeleton and golden lid, which perches easily on a trolley. When the sarcophagus is removed, two fixed and four removable gold bars are revealed beneath it. This part of the set is based upon the sarcophagus being sold in the auction house in the 2011 film, and also the one that Sherlock Holmes places the bomb into to keep it from killing Hoffmanstahl. The gold bars are for playability purposes.
The auction table measures approximately 8 cm (3") wide, 5 cm (2") deep, and 7 cm (2.75") high. It features two stands holding flames on either side and a line of glass around the outside. On the table are a golden knife, a solid blue diamond, a crystal, a king's crown, a Medeival helmet, a sword and a large dagger. There is also a purple curtain behind them as well as a golden clock and small temple-like item at the top. This part of the set is based upon the auction table in the auction house from the 2011 film. It was only seen very briefly in the auction house and the main focus was on the Egyptian Sarcophagus. The selection of items on the table are not from the film and are chosen for playability purposes.
