  1. Yeah the piano keys tile is in my order (I have 2 from the purple Metalbeard mech set and now I have another 4 comming in the order) My order has now moved to "in warehouse" which is great (hopefully that means they actually have stock of the parts I ordered)

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    They said in reports about the diner that they couldn't make a car dealer work in the modulars so I doubt they are doing that for 2020.
  3. After a long time searching for parts I wanted and a few times where I was at the point of "what parts do I actually want to order" before deciding I couldn't do an order at that time (and of course all the times B&P was down or not working) I have finally actually places a B&P order and its gone through all the payment steps (taking my credit card etc) and I have an order number. I also recorded the list of parts on the page where it shows you your parts before you go to the main lego shop checkout/cart so if for whatever reason things don't work I can go the "contact LEGO via other means and get them to handle the order" route. Spent A$221.29 on parts (plus $6.99 on an xtra streetlamps polybag to avoid paying the $15 shipping). Ordered 445 parts across 129 lots (I dont know what the maximum number of lots per order is but it let me order the 129 without complaining). Order status is now "in process" (with the streetlamps at "in warehouse" and all the B&P parts are "in process"). Hopefully things don't go wrong and I actually get all the parts I ordered sent to me (my online bank shows the hold has been placed on the money so the credit card stuff seemed to work right I hope) Quite a few nice pieces in this order too including many parts that would otherwise require purchasing expensive sets to obtain (like all the chinese food from the chinese restaurant set, the tan 1 x 3 inverted slope that only comes in the Harley, the 1 x 3 x 2 glass in trans-black that only comes in the London bus, the 1/4 circle taco print from that one Friends sports set, the 2 rainbow print 1x1 tiles from the Trafalgar Square set, the bellhop torso from last years City set with the hotel, various printed and special pieces from the Steamboat Willie set and some minifig parts that are only found in the more expensive Hidden Side sets like the school and train and bus) It was hard getting from the 322 parts from my wishlist that LEGO listed as "for sale" down to the 129 parts I actually ordered but it was worth it :)

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    If I wasn't so busy with other things (like getting ready for the next LEGO show) I would make something that looks like an old school Ute (also known as a pickup truck in countries other than Australia). Not a big pickup truck but one of the more car-like pickups. Done in the right style and color (maybe something like azure or dark green or some other color we don't see as much of) I think it would be very cool as a set.

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    The new parts (Halloween etc) are now in stock at the Dreamworld LEGO store here in Queensland for those interested. If I could do the "take 15 random parts" thing that others here have done at other stores I might be willing to spend the $20 and pick some up (especially since the bins at Dreamworld currently have some CMF S1 Nurse torsos in there and I could use more of those) but I wasn't able to find 3 complete figs worth spending $20 on.

    Ideas for new City sets

    They could invent a new piece for such a truck (printed or molded).

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    I hope LEGO repeats what they did with the Old Fishing Store where it was filled with all sorts of fishing/boating/diving/nautical/marine parts and fills this set with all things pirate.

    Ideas for new City sets

    I think a taco truck would go well in the Great Vehicles line. Or a truck selling some sort of meat (chicken wings, barbecue, something like that)

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    I would love to see more proper Space sets (classic or otherwise) to go along with the Exo-Suit (and some recent non-Ideas things like the Spaceship Spaceship SPACESHIP! and the Space Squad) Too bad LEGO seems unwilling to take a risk on anything that might in some way harm sales of the overpriced crap that is Star Wars...

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    Be nice if the stores here (Dreamworld and now Robina) got some of these nice pieces.

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    Its not just about piece count, its also piece size (i.e. does the set include larger parts or smaller parts) and overall cost (certain parts cost more for LEGO to make than others)

    The clear dome pieces, the other big clear pieces and also the pieces at both ends next to where the big clear pieces are.

    Nice though that station is, I can't see it being made into an actual set (it relies on several long-discontinued parts and unlike some Ideas sets, these parts aren't ones that can easily be substituted with other things that are still in production)

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The secret is to try and have colors that please most of the people most of the time. And to have enough variety of colors (and parts and subject material) across all available products such that everyone can find something they like.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Hopefully they include some good colors in the next modular (like they did with all the teal and pink shades in the Downtown Diner or all that lovely dark red in the Ghostbusters Firehouse). Only reason I dont own the Garage is that ugly dark orange color (which I don't like and don't use).
