    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    ^I didn't design it.

    I saw what looked like an ice cream van in Lego City Adventures. It used the post 2013, rounded front design used on the 2017 pizza van. To be honest, I was genuinely surprised they were doing an ice cream van. Their last one would be a tough act to follow!

    What was the last movie you watched?

    The Big Bus. It's on Amazon Prime in the UK, but watch out, he's got a broken milk carton!

    Q&A: What is your favorite LEGO Vehicle?

    6660 Hook n haul wrecker, with its working suspension and (most importantly) its accessible engine. Discovered it at school back in '93. Really opened my eyes to what Lego could do. When I MOC or MOD a vehicle, I usually start with the engine.

    I've just been to Canada. Thought I would buy Duke Caboom there.

    Will this be broadcast in the UK?

    I was thinking of the looser interpretation. I could never afford a correctly scaled rocket.

    I just like it that we finally have a minifig scale rocket, rather than a shuttle.

    What's this a reference to?

    Sorry, I don't have the Mr Freeze bodyware.

    Well, in response to the earlier suggestions, I have managed to bricklink two of the new style fishbowl helmet, and tried it on Buzz Lightyear and retro-spacemen figures. First thing found was, the new helmet is very wide, and won't fit over most minifigure bodyware. In the case of Buzz, I simply discarded his bodyware and placed the helmet on the bare minifig body, taking advantage of the logo printed on his chest underneath. I don't know why Lego put it there, but it makes his torso more versatile. You can often find novelties like that in Lego. For the retro-spacemen, I wanted to give him primitive looking briefing apparatus, and chose a 1997 design scuba tank. The helmet still didn't fit directly on top of the tank, so I resorted to what is probably an illegal build; I placed a neck bracket on top of and through the front part of the scuba tank structure, raising the neck, but also bending the front air pipe upwards.

    Maybe they were erroneously listed early.

    Of course they sold out! This is the best space range since 1980something.

    Also the Toy Story 4 sets, which might serve as the 'junior' end of the fairground.
