  1. There is a good chance that if they named the set “Discovery” that it might not even be a fairground set. It might be the return of the Space Shuttle as an officially licensed set. I hope they do it. I missed out on the first Expert set.

    Well done! Reminds me of the old 57' Chevy Convertibles that I saw growing up still being used in some places.
  3. I got your instructions for the first batch of cars back 2 years ago, still have yet to get the parts to make them... I own 2 of the Holiday train sets, so is that enough parts to build most of this expansion? or are these parts that have nothing to do with the exisiting set? (I know the light wheel car is obvious lol)

    This is what I am planning to do with it. Gonna have to see the instructions before I change the design more than I have in this render I just finished. The more I look at it, the more I want 2 of them like I felt with the Brick Bank. as of late, I have felt that you need 2 of the modulars anymore to make it feel like a full fledged modular building. Eliminate the gas station and turn that canopy area into a loading/unloading area.

    does anyone know if this is a Lego designer? this was in the batch of Official Press images

    oh come on, ;) I have some ideas for how to do an XL, just looking at the garage I can see it in my head without doing a photoshop. Maybe i'll try to do it in LDD first to come up with a builders plan. It has the potential to be a completely different building if the layout is changed somewhat. Take this set as a challenge, which I personally enjoy when I get 2 sets ever since BrickBank. and I absolutely loved how it turned out, probably my favorite modular I have done because of it.

    I ran into this issue at Brick Fair Viriginia when I first met a MOCer in person, they looked at me like I was trash when I asked them all these questions on how they did their builds, as in what inspired them and that it inspired me. Long Story short, I came away from the experience upset and angry, like they didn't have any interest or time to talk with someone that wasn't in a LUG. I even showed him some pics of my MOC from my phone, he didn't seem impressed, even though I have received high praise for it being my first steam locomotive moc. then a short year later, when I post my new MOC on the groups page for some thoughts and ideas on how to improve it, they literally destroy it criticizing the very design overall, making me not to want to even show it and they didn't even apologize when other members noticed how they were being too condescending. So maybe that is where I get my disdain for AFOLs. They are stuck up %$&holes all the fumes from the garage killed it lol

    oh no, I was hoping to see what your XL might look like :( I had an idea to make mine into a hospital seeing how this design would work. The gas station would be the unloading/loading area and it would of course be twice that size since it would be 2 modulars

    no, especially in the US, TV's looked like that in the 1950's, here's an example of an odd shape similar to it.

    I hated it at first, but after looking at non-official photos and YouTube videos of the actual set (not just photos) I think I like it but not as it is, but as a modifiable design just calling out to be changed into an XL

    this too is a plus for me because if I ever want to BL the Town Hall, this will likely decrease the cost

    It's a jumper for the 1x1, the 2x2 tile has a hole so it can work with it. all in all, its likely designed to make angles on top of tiles. Edit: Nevermind, I see its 2 badly scaled photos of the same part. The 2x2 is definitely a new piece though, maybe it works with a technic stud now?

    exactly! the guy might be studying economics, but apparently doesn't get the difference between quantity and the size of the quantity in the coaster set. Lego mostly charges by weight, not strictly PPP

    actually it is, if you look closely at the gas pumps, the Octan sign is using a light saber style holder with a stud, but the piece is too small for the 2x2 round tile to fit properly so this is where this new jumper is useful.

    One more reason why I would likely get 2 to fix those imperfections. make an XL and maybe change the gas station up or remove it entirely.
