    Lego City 2023 Leaks, Rumours, Speculation And Discussion

    From the reviews of the creator building set for this summer i am convinced not to get it after all because there is no depth to the buildings which means i would have to use additional expenses if i want to make the buildings deeper and for a set with that price tag one shouldnt have to do that. The big city set although $60 more it much more detailed and have deeper rooms and you dont need to spend extra money to make it better because it is fine just as it is so i will be buying that instead. The buildings for the creator theme seemed to have been very much dumbed down a lot the past few years with this years set being the pinnacle of it with most of the buildings being basically just a facade.

    [OFFICIAL] 10320 Eldorado Fortress - Available NOW

    i get why they made it modular to keep it in line with the barracuda bay but in my opinion if they were going to do that the designers should of made the back better when displayed opened up because that display leaves little room for placement of figures and in some parts look like a facade with little playable room in that open up style. i also agree with what someone mentioned previously that with such a high end set one shouldnt have to mod the set when opened up to make more walk-room. i personally will be keeping the set in the original intended configuration and the biggest gripe with the set is the governors quarters with it being so little detailed and the cannon taking up the space. if the cannon is removed, then the back really needs to be modded to make the captains quarters look decent like for example putting in a back wall which is what i intend on doing. my only other gripe is the lack of more pirate related animals such as the rare seagulls which could of been included with a nest onto one of the quarters and maybe and this is pushing it a horse for the governor. two crabs, a parrot and one monkey just doesnt do it for me. i am just glad they did a remake of a set i always wanted and was just too expensive to get on the aftermarket and i am grateful for the modernization of the baseplate. just a wild thought but a brick built octopus attacking the fort would of been a nice addition or the ship included having crates with bananas being transported to the fort.

    [OFFICIAL] 10320 Eldorado Fortress - Available NOW

    initially when i heard the set was making a come back i was excited but now that ive seen some of the reviews on youtube i am kind of torn between getting it and skipping. maybe i expected too much from the set but, i wished that the inside cave system was accessible without having to rearrange the fort. maybe the rock work on the sides could of have hinges where they open up

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I like the Bugle set but what disappoints me is as a modular building there should be at least stairs inside or a real working elevator instead of a false one. I would of been ok without these if the back was opened but the way it is now is really bugging me.
  9. Lego larceny may be on the rise. French police have been investigating an international ring of toy thieves with a particular affinity for the colorful, interlocking bricks, according to a recent report from The Guardian. In this case, three suspects were caught taking boxes of Legos from a toy shop near Paris, with the goal of selling them in Poland, according to Le Parisien. And it's not just Europe. Lego robberies have happened in the United States as well. Last month, a man in Oregon was arrested after local police suspected he stole $7,500 worth of Lego toy sets. There's a lot of money in Legos. Lego sets come out in limited editions and they soon become collectors' items. There might even be a whole black market for the bricks, Lego specialist Gerben van IJken tells Scott Simon on Weekend Edition. "Well, that's very difficult to prove that there's a black market. However, there is an enormous amount of collectors out there who are missing out on certain sets right now and are willing to pay a lot of money for these sets," he says. Van IJken is an auctioneer at an auction website for collectibles. He says the most valuable and sought-after sets are those in their original packaging, not opened yet. For example — Lego Café Corner, a set released in 2007 for about $150, can nowadays run up to $3,000 if kept in its original condition, van IJken says. Other sets routinely fetch thousands of dollars in online marketplaces. Some sellers are asking for more than $3,500 for an unopened set of the Lego Millennium Falcon. Just like almost everything else in the world, the pandemic could be a driving force behind this phenomenon. "Especially during the lockdown period, as we are in right now — it's still extremely popular," van IJken adds. "And Lego sales are still extremely high, not only in the Lego Company itself but on our platform too. We saw a 100% rise in sales over the past year."
  10. Given these current times with the pandemic and all i was hesitant to purchase bricks on brick link but i had a project that i needed to complete so i ended up taking the leap and purchasing them. the question is how how should i or how do you all sanitize your bricks? I plan on putting them in a tub filled with dish washing liquid and letting them soak but i also, and yes being paranoid, want to give them an alcohol bath or spray preferably using the lower strength of 70% alcohol. The other question i guess is will the alcohol discolor the bricks or make them brittle? any suggestions?

    lego and military sets

    Why so angry I came across an article that is lego related and decided to share it i dont understand how it can offend anyone.
  12. this is an excerpt from the article in the link This is a story about a multibillion-dollar international conglomerate, arms manufacturers, a German peace group and renegades who make miniaturized weapons systems out of small shops. Not that those tiny weapons could actually hurt anyone. Well, not unless you stepped on one. The conglomerate is LEGO, with worldwide revenues of $6.2 billion in 2019 from its toys, retail stores, theme parks and even movie rights. Its toy sets -- which are intended to "inspire the builders of tomorrow," according to the company's mission statement -- run the gamut, from skyscrapers to boats, police stations to castles. There's even a kit to make Rome's famous Colosseum. Nothing from the real world, it seems, is off limits. That is, except for anything modeled on today's military. "We have a long-standing policy of not creating sets which feature real military vehicles that are currently in use," Ryan Greenwood, a spokesman for the company, said in an email to CNN. But during the summer, the Danish company released a set for the V-22 Osprey, a tiltrotor aircraft manufactured by Boeing and Bell Helicopter Textron that is only used by the American and Japanese militaries.

    10278 Police Station

    I believe that I have solved the case and it involves several modulars. This goes all the way back to the detective office and the smuggling of the candy and cookies and there is a police woman in that set who is probably from the police station investigating the smuggling. And where are the cookies coming from , the guy in the news paper stand from the police station set who passes it on to the flower cart seller who then takes it to the barber shop near the detective office and then the people in the pool room pay for the cookies at the laundry mat near the brick bank. The book shop comes into play because the blue bird in the police station is bringing one of the donuts that fell off the pocket of the news paper seller back to the other bird in the nest which was probably seen by one of the police officers following the clues.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    I actually like the new road system because its great for those who dont have large modular city buildings and would like to build cities on a smaller scale and you are not forced to have you city block set to a normal 32x32 sizeroad plate you can make your city whatever size you want BUT i do think lego should also keep the original road base plates
