  1. That doesn't work if the part is printed or dual-molded or otherwise special.

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    The build-a-fig bins at some of the stores near me have re-opened. Haven't spotted much in the way of parts worth snagging though (not enough to justify the price tag for a set of 3)
  3. I wonder if any of the other parts from the Chinese New Year sets will become available for sale (I am especially interested in that orange smartphone tile). More generally I wish there was a way to know about parts that have 0.00 price tag and "out of stock" and that will never become available (something I suspect is the case for the short sleeve police torso from last year's Main Square set along with the tram nose from the same set, the LEGO logo tile from the Grand Piano, the $ and police badge tiles from the City Advent Calendar and the cool yellow door from the Diagon Alley set, among other parts)

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The Australian stores are not run by LEGO but by 3rd parties and have different GWP schedules and plans.

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    They could always include a conservationist/ranger/wildlife photographer who is looking after the animals and trying to keep them safe.
  6. Leaks are out of a Porky Pig torso which seems to confirm the Looney Toons CMF rumor and also suggest that its not going to just be a Space Jam licensed series or something.
  7. LEGO have themselves said they plan to make all their packaging going forward out of green sustainable materials. The packaging they are using for the CMFs is most definitely NOT green and sustainable so switching to boxes will help with that goal. Given how far in advance products are designed and the fact that LEGO have been testing the idea of box packaging for CMFs since before Covid, the most likely answer to why they are moving boxes would be the environmental one.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Bought the new police station yesterday (the availability of the Amelia Earhart GWP at the local LEGO Certified Store was enough incentive to jump on it rather than waiting for some slim chance of a discount on the set later) and IMO its the best modular of the lot. So many wonderful designs and cool parts.

    Ideas for new City sets

    A set at the same price point as the beach rescue ATV, sports car etc but of a Ute (or as you yanks would say, a pickup truck) would be great.

    10278 Police Station

    Bought this set yesterday (the availability of the Amelia Earhart GWP at the local LEGO Certified Store was enough incentive to jump on it rather than waiting for some slim chance of a discount on the set later) and IMO its the best modular of the lot. So many wonderful designs and cool parts. My only criticism is how hard the dark brown parts are to see in the instructions.

    Seasonal 2021

    Snagged the Amelia Earhart set from the local LEGO Certified Store as a GWP (bought the new Police Station modular to hit the required spend). Its a really great set once built and as a bonus I have a use for the airplane in my current project thanks to Night at the Museum 2 (where said airplane flew over New York City)

    Ideas for new City sets

    The harvester from the 2019 truck-with-harvester set was a pretty decent model IMO. I suspect we wont be seeing a farm theme anytime soon and sets like that and this year's tractor are the best hope we have for farm stuff in City.

    Disney Properties 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Damn, no Donald in any of the sets (one character I dont have and want to add to the collection)
  14. According to my notes I bought a red whip in August last year or so as part of my last B&P order.

    Ideas for new City sets

    I would love to see a shearing shed set. New sheep mold, small building and a couple of shearers. Or a set that had a farm windmill water pump like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windpump#/media/File:Wind-powered-agricultural-pump-1.jpg
