I have multiple pieces, including doors, with the Shell logo printed on them from sets in the 1980's, so it has been done before.
You're right, and this was before the no-logo policy was implemented. I'm afraid I can't find a source for this information right away, but it's been discussed on this forum before.

Wow - if they've already got it, it can't be too long before it's released. Better rethink my budget... can't wait!

Looks more like the blue building (or a mod thereof) from Mediaeval Marketplace – its tan building is just across the street, too.

This set looks great, a cheap(er) way to get a space shuttle. I can't wait until the release over here in March!

There's also a very poor quality 'review' of 3366 somewhere on youtube, although it's really just a kid holding the set's various components in front of the camera and forgetting to turn the sound on. The fact that all of these sets are being sold in places raises the question for me, though, of WHEN they're supposed to hit stores! Is there any hard-and-fast information one this? It's far too early a release for them to come out with the summer wave, but they definitely aren't with the winter wave. What's going on with these sets? I'd appreciate some clarification.

Edit: just read Brickviller's comment. Duh  :sadnew: . Waiting until March it is, then.

I already have the 3366 Satellite Launch Platform in my possession too. There is one toy shop here that has it on the shelves since late January and the exact same thing happened with the 7684 Pig Farm last year.

Imo it's weird the City sets aren't shown on the Nuremberg Toy Fair (or at least that nobody takes a video or pics of them). :cry_sad:

Having had some closer looks at the Space Port sets, I decided not to buy them:
Of course they look - apart from the Moon Buggy (which looks imo much too juniorized) - amazing. But in my planned final layout (which very supposably won't be as big as I plan it at the moment) there won't be any place. Plus I like the Harbour sets more than these Space sets. And since money is limited, too, I will pass the Space sets and get the Harbour sets.

Btw:
Does someone remember when last year we got the first confirmation (picture, set descrpition or at least set name and set number) of the City House and the Public Transport Center?
I think it's time that we at least get some hints and/or set names which exlusive City sets we can await for this summer!
(I can't imagine - and even don't hope - that there won't be minimum one exclusive City set (apart from the Winter set) this year. And I even bet that minimum one of maximum two sets will be Harbour related. What do you think?)

Thank you for those pictures, I must admit that the marina looks great.
The café on top of the shop is very cute.

And the boat looks fantastic Posted Image, Very stylish and modern.

Yes, finally some pictures to talk about.....you are a blessing 'kris kelvin' - thank you ! :grin:
First the marina, a bit more detail we can see here, the cafe has a name....the what ?
Oh, I see Paradise Cafe.....original name....oh, well I'll buy it ! :wink:
Plus that blue dive boat and yellow quad.....quite realistic....cool I would only need to custom some DHL Surf Lifesaving torso's ! :wink:
Now for the truck and trailer....sadly only this shot - I can only hope the front view of the truck impresses me more. It does feel like extra-large classic town.....I was hoping for better stickers than that.....ah, well. :look:
And what's with the Octan uniforms when the truck is not stickered Octan ? :wink:
Must be another hey lets throw a kit together tomorrow it will sell ! :wacko:
Hey, 'kris' anymore surprises for us today ? :wink:

That roof sign looks like it says "Porndise Cafe" at first glance... but of course not. I have to agree it looks ridiculous though, like a mishmash of different coloured parts.
The windsurfer brings back memories, for sure. I had the old caravan with trailer before the dark age.

I think the marina looks pretty good. Doubt I'll buy it, though. I'm not much of a City collector-- if I buy any City sets, it'll be the Space ones, and I'm into them chiefly for their nostalgic value.

It's kind of funny that the diver in the marina set uses Squidtron's torso from Space Police III. Nothing on that box has a preliminary watermark on it, but I wonder if that will really make it to the final set or if they might make a new wetsuit print for him.

I wish the Marina used one of the surfboards from the collectible minifigs... I'm getting kind of tired of the overuse of those enormous sailboards. They do work well as sailboards, but I see two on that box art and I don't see any point in having two of them when there's only one sail in the set. Kind of silly on that box art how the sailboard guy is surfing upriver from the marina rather than on the open water.

Love the little surf shop, and the pier itself. And it looks like the top floor with the balcony and cafe is compatible with the modular houses (not the modular buildings like Cafe Corner and Green Grocer, but rather the 6x16 modular buildings in sets like Construction Site, City Corner, and City House).

I like the truck with the boat trailer too, but I'm not too impressed with the boat itself. It's not nearly as cool as many Creator boats or even other City boats have been. It's got a decent design, but I feel it deserves a lot more detail at that size.
