It is certainly one of the most beautiful sets ever made, I cannot comprend the most elegant, fantastic and awesome LEGO set ever! At last an offical look a like to the TGV colouring I love the most, the Sud-Est.

Please don't talk to me as I drown in its beauty.

:wub: :wub: :wub:

(I am so sorry for the excitment.....)

Fantastic news for train fans. This is an absolute must buy for me. The standard of Lego trains in recent times has been superb with the Emerald Night and the Maersk, and this high speed train just continues the quality. I love the colour scheme, I love the design, frankly I love everything about this and can't wait till January for its release.

I think its also important to mention the price, £80 for 1,351 pieces is an absolute bargain. The price of new sets often raises eyebrows due to the steep cost, its nice for once to be surprised at just how cheap this set is. :sweet:

Woaaaa! :cry_happy:

Nice looking train, the french TGV is now turned officially in LEGO! And in it's nice orange color!

That remind me when I was a child, my mother, who works at the SNCF (the french train company) has shown us it in real, it was very impressive!

I had to wait some years to take it, making Paris-Marseille in only 3 houres, and the driver saying after 30 minutes "our train is on its hightspeed, 300km/h".

It was fantastic!

Nostalgia aside, TLC has made a very nice looking train, and I think tha lot of people will probably buy two copies of this set to have a complete TGV. It will be my case!

They have put some nice details inside and outside, like the two white arrow (in place of TGV letters), with cheese slopes.

Great work, you have made my day TLC!

I suppose that most of us will get at least two of these, to have the end carriage matching the front.

I hope they won't raise (too much) the price, cf what they did with the haunted house between the announcement and the start of sales.

This is certainly a dream come true! I LOVE IT! I can't wait to have it for Christmas. Should be out just before that anyway. LEGO is finally listening to its fans I suppose, as this has been on many AFOL wishlists for ages. Brilliant and GREAT Move LEGO!

Yay! I can't wait to discover side ways building! Maybe we could create a new abbreviation so we can recognise it, I dunno. Something like SNOT (Studs Not On Top) or something...

Is it new that they describe the gender of minifigs in the minifig list?

Well, apart from that, this is awesome news, down there with TLC's best trains sets.

Love it, the running coffee machine joke appears in this set

great interior as well. I'm wondering if we might see this set on display at the Steam UK exhibition next week? Someone had the Castle jousting set which came out 1st Jan 2012 on display there last year so there is some hope.
