  1. That's why I mentioned 2019.
  2. They said next year, so 2019 is off the mark. Didn't get a more specific date (but then I didn't ask, either).
  3. The conversation was very informal, so obviously there's a chance that they were exaggerating . But even if they were, it's a pretty good indicator that it will indeed be huge.
  4. That's what they said...
  5. Just thought I'd mention that I had a chat with the Ideas people at the Skærbæk Fan Weekend on Saturday, about the upcoming sets. They had a stand there with the Caterham on display. I haven't seen much about the Apollo 11 Saturn-V anywhere yet, so it came as a nice surprise that they were actually willing to discuss it a bit, specifically the fact that it doesn't seem to have lost any size during the refinement process. According to both representatives I talked to (and they should know what they're talking about) it's "huge" and "more than a metre in length". Which means it's "easily the biggest Ideas set so far".
  6. As far as I know it was in order to make the machines that assembled the minifigures know what was the front and what was the back of the torso, so that the arms wouldn't be connected the wrong way. I believe I heard this from an insider, and it certainly seems a plausible explanation.
  7. I can shed some light on this, or rather, the designer of the original Yellow Castle can - because in my interview with the late Daniel August Krentz, published in issue #3 of Bricks Culture magazine, we touched on this subject. I quote: You can read the entire article on my Flickr, the first spread is here. Daniel also told me his inspiration for the Yellow Castle came from typical castles in the Mediterranean countries - especially Spain, which, as far as I know, tend to be more tan in colour than the traditional Northern European grey ones. I hope this gives you a little bit of extra insight on the matter.
  8. ...provided a) it's complete and in decent condition (I'd definitely recommend removing the dust, at least) and b) you can actually find somebody who's willing to pay that price for it. It doesn't really help what Brickpicker says if there aren't any buyers around... ;)
  9. I'm 100% certain it'll turn up in Europe sooner or later. It's not the first time the promotions aren't the same all over the world, and I don't think any of the others have failed to turn up everywhere eventually.
  10. This is very nice! I'd love to see it built with real bricks. But... the upside-down part of the fuel tanks won't really work, will it? In my experience, placing headlight bricks next to regular bricks like that tends to create quite a bit of stress as it doesn't really fit... or am I wrong? I'm very, very surprised that LDD let you do it.
  11. Hi there Yellowbird! Nice to see another fellow Norwegian here - there's a few of us, but we might not be visible on the forums at all times :) My number one suggestion to you would be to check out Brikkelauget, the Norwegian LEGO User Group - www.brikkelauget.no - where you'll get answers from Norwegians. Which might be more practical, especially when it comes to shipping costs and sourcing parts. See you there :)
  12. It isn't the same mould as the gorilla suit guy's mask though, it's definitely Chima. There were a few in the London Westfield Shepherd's Bush store when I was there a couple of weeks ago, too...
  13. Yes, they are. But they're not decorated, unlike all the Chima heads.
  14. This: Westfield 2 by Are J Heiseldal, on Flickr ...on more than one occasion! I wonder how that happens and where they come from.
  15. I don't know if something like this is what you're suggesting, but my Updating the Classics project has been going on for a few years now. There are some buildings on the last pages: Garage 26 by Are J Heiseldal, on Flickr Snack Bar 21 by Are J Heiseldal, on Flickr Post Office 20 by Are J Heiseldal, on Flickr Doctor's Office 21 by Are J Heiseldal, on Flickr
