City Instructions discussion thread

27 posts in this topic

I have just visited Lego's own instruction download page and ALL the city sets are NOT there - every other theme is !

(That's why I'm not posting this in general dis. & news, only in the city forum)

Maybe they are uploading all the new 2010 sets on that page.

We have lost 'Brickley Words' also Brickset doesn't have the 'Brickfactory' link any more, so right now if you need to replace that lost set of instructions - you are out of luck !

Those pages are limited to partcular sets - I`was speaking of access through customer service downloads - they download and save as a pdf and they go as far back as the early 1990's (the police link starts at 2005).

I did know of this section of Lego city web pages but it require you to be online all the time, a pdf once you've got it you have got it !

calm down, people. there are several other sites with instructions for Lego sets. besides, they're probably just updating the site or something... wait a few days...

It's still down.

Does anyone have the instructions for LEGO 7686 Helicopter Transporter? I was wanting to get a look at how they built the semi.

Thanks,

Zach

Thankfully, I saved it before it went down. How do you want to trade it?

Can you host it on rapidshare or something because I can't send messages (too new). I would normally just send you my email.

Thanks!

PS I hate the flash based instructions...

Brickset has recently added the feature to directly access to the PDF files of set instructions, if LEGO.com has them uploaded. I just tested it and it is working.

See if Brickset can help you out.

Well guess what they are back on customer service website via Lego.com, but they are broken down into transport, city(misc. sets), police, trains, airport and fire listings. At least we can now get our pdf's back on our favorite sets. :sweet::grin::laugh:

Edit - just checked there no 2010 pdf's yet .....odd ?

No it's not, the new sets are never available right away, they usually take a while to get the new sets up.

Just relax, in due time they will all be available. :wink:

The 2010 instructions are now here!

There are some extra ones for sets that haven't been released yet like the 3181 Passenger Plane :sweet: It's a little disappointing though.

G'day 'Svelte' where did you find them ?

I've tried Brickfactory and Lego Customer Service - no joy !

They are down for me now too. Good thing I saved them! :grin:

I expect they will be up again soon.

They had all the 2010 Jan releases plus the Passenger Plane, but none of the other later releases such as the Farmer set or Airport. (Had all the SP3, SW, PM, Imperial Flagship and Creator sets too).

Here's the interior of the Passenger Plane:

I got my instructions from the box when I bought the new sets :tongue:

I might want to take a peek on instructions of some sets that I don't see on my TRU yet---like the Octan truck. But then TRU will get even that before S@H so :grin:

Funny how they split City; now we have subthemes like Airport, Coast guard and so on. Or is it me that never noticed?
