  1. I found this small U shaped layout on youtube a few months ago. Maybe there's some ideas you can 'borrow'? The builder didn't use inside corners though, but a nice print to create an illusion of a larger city.
  2. Second and Third 2017 LEGO Ideas Review - Guessing Game

    I don't know if Lego has some kind of rule for or against allowing multiple sets from the same author. The pop-up book is from the same author as the Maze set, so I hope it's not a criteria against this set since I'd like to see it go into production. If Lego does refuse new ideas from the same authors then it's going to be slim pickings in the third review, because four sets belong to authors which allready have (had) a set in production.
  3. What was your favourite LEGO set released in 2017

    For me 31066 Space Shuttle Explorer takes the cake. There’s just something about this set that makes me smile. I also like the Pizza Van and the seasonal vignettes. Eventhough 2017 was a good year for very large sets, I found most pleasure/value in the smaller offerings.
  4. Lego 60th Anniversary sets 2018

    What if Lego would release building instructions which require parts of these sets for a large 'anniversary build'? Like they did with the 40th anniversary of the Technic line? Would that make these sets more interesting? I'll probably buy one of each anyway, especially if there are nice discounts.
  5. Of those two the Parisian Restaurant is the oldest, so the most likely to be retired first (after Palace Cinema). If you want to avoid crazy aftermarket prices I’d go for Parisian Restaurant first.
  6. 10259 Winter Village Station

    I didn't know that website, thank you for the tip!
  7. 10259 Winter Village Station

    I might check out that store in Köln, thanks for the tip! :) At times like these I'd like to see Lego provide an online PaB inventory per store, so you could at least check in advance if there's anything worthwhile in those bins.
  8. Lego 60th Anniversary sets 2018

    I wonder how Lego is going to make an anniversary edition out of a standard bucket of bricks?
  9. 10259 Winter Village Station

    I've been contemplating visiting the Lille store myself, but it's quite a drive from where I live (to the north-east of Brussels roughly). A €5 discount would immediatly be 'burned' on petrol. Do they have a decent PaB wall? The one in Antwerp/Wijnegem is quite small. On other forums I visit people are often organising group purchases for the larger sets in German stores, because the large price difference between DE and BE/NL makes it worthwhile. This is all due to the fact that Lego forces customers to use their local S@H. In contrast a store like Amazon allows you to buy from any of their stores. I do believe there is some regulation coming on European level to 'force' companies like Lego to offer true international sh(i)(o)pping. The cynical part of me assumes Lego will just up their prices on all stores then, so there won't be any price difference anymore.
  10. Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Actually, the last three years all Winter Village sets were anounced in August. The winter train August 11th 2016, Toy Shop August 18th 2015, Santa's Workshop August 9th 2014. I didn't bother checking older releases though.
  11. 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V (LEGO Ideas)

    I ordered mine wednesday afternoon, after receiving a warning on a Dutch forum that the set was allready available at that time. And sure enough, it was available on the Dutch and Belgian (where I ordered mine) webshops until 19:00 CET approx. I received my set today, together with an R3-M2 polybag that came with the Darth Vader transformation set.
  12. Where should the next People at the ____ take place?

    For some reason I always have to think about the video game 'Theme Hospital' by Bullfrog with its hilarious diseases when people talk about a Lego hospital theme Minifigs with 'bloated head', '3rd degree sideburns',... yes please!
  13. Assembly Square -- Missing An Entire Bag?

    Actually, some sets are manually packed. I saw this recently in some documentary on NGC (Mega Factories or How it's made, Lego edition). They showed people manually boxing up the previous iteration of the police station, claiming this was necessary for larger sets.
  14. 10255 Assembly Square

    Will the new modular come with a fitting polybag, like the flower/cookie cart? Otherwise I'll hold off buying this set in January. Between the London store opening and all the Christmas goodies my wallet needs some recharging
  15. Ballabreek 2016
