    Hogwarts Express Micro

    Thank you! So I should have searched for claws plural. Definitely nice parts usage there!

    Winter Village Cottage recolor. Best cheapest color?

    Tan would look good and hopefully not be too expensive? And you could change the door and window frames to be the cheaper reddish brown colour. It has been done before, though this one still has the green windows: Whatever you decide, it would be interesting to hear what you decide on and to see the recoloured version.

    What is that part used to create the mountains? ( I looked up claw elements on bricklink and couldn’t see anything resembling them) Love this build. Love the mountains and the smoke.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yes iPlaymobil makes religious sets, which if people don’t want to buy they don’t have to. I guess there would be complaints if the *one* annual winter village set was something that some people feel they couldn’t possibly buy on principal, but then there are complaints about whatever set they make so what is the difference? In this case there are many people asking for a church because it is a building central to pretty much every village there is in real life. And within the set there could be a wedding happening, which isn’t particularly religious. Anyway, at least with Lego we can make our own churches and I guess that is just what we need to do.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Oh I couldn’t agree more about a church, but apparently TLG have a policy against religious buildings, which I simply don’t understand. I didn’t realise that a village wouldn’t have a town hall. I do agree that more houses would be good. How about a winter village farm? Could be a dairy farm with a little stall selling hot chocolate :-)

    I would like a big grand town hall to be the centrepiece of the entire town. I also long for a candy shop but I think that should be a standalone set another year - with a vintage, green delivery truck :-)

    [MOC] Winter Village Jail

    That’s hilarious!

    I think it is a carousel. There is another picture showing a knob at the base that turns it, and there are a 3-part train and Christmas tree that can easily be removed.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I really like the idea of a restaurant in a barn but I can’t believe that TLG would do something quite so adventurous. It would be a very American thing whereas the winter village seems more European. A fire station definitely seems most likely to me. And I am really happy about this. I have often thought a fire station would be a good addition (all those log fires must surely be a risk!) but for some reason always forgot about it when wondering what TLG might bring out next. Hopefully the building has lovely character to it and a sweet vintage firetruck - like the one from the modular fire building but smaller I guess. Definitely will be carrying out a cat rescue mission with this one. Feng-huang0296, I feel your pain as I already had a train station before last year’s came out. So it seems as though there may be more teasers next Monday followed by the reveal the Monday after that...?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I know that those with the original Diagon Alley set will want new buildings in an eventual minifig scale set, and I hope that would be the case, but I also really really hope that they rerelease the wand shop because that building is simply gorgeous!! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they released one or two buildings per year that all clipped together like they are doing for Hogwarts?

    When they rereleased the toy shop they did fix a few things such as the stability of the tree, and just minor cosmetic changes elsewhere so that it essentially looked identical. I hope they are changing the colour of the cottage so that it looks different enough. That I would be happy with. Or I guess I will do that myself though it adds significantly to the cost.

    I just read this news on instagram. I am terribly disappointed that there isn’t something new. Toy store all over again. Thrilled for those who don’t have the original - but is this really instead of a new set? I can’t believe they are doing this again.

    [MOC] Lego Ghost Train ride

    Oh this is very very spooky!!! The video is superb - love the music and the transitions suit the subject perfectly!! Now to the lego itself... I have only ever been on a couple of ghost rides and I have to say this seems the perfect recreation of what I recall. As you say, the closed roof gives the right dark feel and the green lights give an eerie glow. The four compact scenes are really well done - great variety. I think “it’s alive” would be my favourite. The little carts are very cute. The motion is great and I particularly like how the exhibits turn as the carts pass them. I want to be a minifigure on this ride! And that bone writing is brilliant!! What a masterpiece!!

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Well... they were still wearing some summery clothing weren’t they? New winter jumpers, the new scarf piece, a couple of new winter hats including a beanie with pom pom. Dual molded legs to represent ski boots. I suppose we’ve got skis and huskies and sleds galore from the advent calendars, and snowboards from last year’s friends sets, but a couple more would still be nice. Maybe some cross country skis? Or a polar bear? A ski rack, or a mini skating rink, or an igloo. I guess really it would (and should!) be all about the winter outfits.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Here, here, but I don’t really see a problem with releasing fun in the snow during summer time. Would that really affect sales? Here in Oz, the fun at the beach set came out during our winter but I didn’t hear any comments about that not being something people wanted at that time of year. But definitely, a fun at the snow set with as many new torsos and pieces as the other sets have received would be a wonderful addition to the winter village!!
