    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    Looks like this is the end of the road for VIDIYO: https://www-promobricks-de.translate.goog/lego-vidiyo-wird-eingestellt/127968/?_x_tr_sl=de&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en&_x_tr_pto=ajax,sc,elem (Google Translate link of Promobricks) I am all for experimental themes, despite disliking sets whose main play function revolves around the use of a smartphone / an app (RIP Power Functions ). I'd love to see an experiment to bring back one of the classic themes like Castle, Pirates, Space, just to see how they would perform and to judge whether profits lie in outlandish themes or in more archetypal settings.
  2. The scale of the Gunship would be amazing for MOCed clone troopers using minifigure helmets but bodies with human proportions.
  3. A Thursday reveal? That's sooner than I expected, considering we just got the T2 press release. Exciting times, I just hope the model justifies the price. Really curious as to how the bubble turrets are built.
  4. Oooooh, very excited for the reveal. For what I assume will be 450CAD, I hope it will be massive. No idea what is meant by orange. Perhaps some geonosian dirt to add details? Might be nothing. There are quite a few D2Cs coming out in August - the T2 van, the Queer Eye apartment, I think, and the Gunship. I wonder which one will be revealed first. If TLG does one reveal per week to space them out, I would assume one of them is imminent, but without any teasers, I wouldn't get my hopes up.

    I just got off a quick call with CS and I'm in the same boat as you are. Didn't mention Bricklink but I asked the rep whether I could change the payment information now or should wait for the email. They told me to wait for the email, which will be sent near the shipping date, and that I would have seven days to contact them to update the payment info.

    Thanks, I'll probably give CS a call on Monday. Paypal is too popular a payment method for TLG to be unaware of this issue and start cancelling orders. I found this Tweet from someone with a similar problem:
  7. Finished building the set yesterday and I have to say that the build was quite enjoyable, IMO. The first steps of building the key levers are quite repetitive, but the rest of the typewriter makes for a wonderful departure from the common house- or car- type builds. The functions in this set are unlike anything I've built, so building all of the mechanisms was quite fun. It's the perfect mix of Technic and System, I think.

    Has anyone paid with PayPal? I'm wondering whether the payment authorization will expire before the order is completed, since no charge will be made until the item is shipped in six months.

    Got the Great Fishing Boat, so far it seems to be the second most popular project? Hopefully it'll reach the 3K mark. I can't wait to display it with the upcoming Lighthouse. Between this set, the Lighthouse and the Old Fishing Store, LEGO Ideas has a pretty nifty subtheme going on. Not really surprised that the Castle smashed through the 3K pre-orders. Personally not my cup of tea, but it is a good build. I'm really surprised TLG hasn't released their own 3000+ piece castle, yet! There are a lot of people clamoring for the return of the theme - looks like that talk is backed by some action, seeing as how quickly the Castle in the Forest is selling.

    Lego 10290 Pickup Truck

    It's a nice little set, but the windshield kills it for me. It's begging for a brick-built windshield using a couple 1x4x3 trans-clear panels. The rest of the car lools pretty good, though. It's strange that it's unlicensed, but it's nice to see a set that isn't tied to a specific brand.

    Saint Basil's Cathedral... incredible work. Definitely in my most wanted landmarks I'd love to see TLG tackle like the Colosseum or Big Ben.
  12. I absolutely love the look of this set but I have to agree that the price is very steep for a non-licensed product. I'm surprised the building experience is pointed out by multiple reviewers as being somewhat lacking, but having built the Colosseum, I don't think I'll mind the repetition that much if I end up buying it 270CAD stings a lot, though, especially for a set that isn't particularly big. But I am craving something other than a building or a vehicle. Thank you for the review and the video demonstration! It looks so good in the pictures
  13. The Google-Translated article just says "We are relatively sure that this can only be the upcoming 75309 UCS Republic Gunship", so I wouldn't take it as 100% confirmation. They've been pretty reliable in the past, but I think they're only making the same assumption most of us have been making since the reveal of the schedule of LEGO Con.
  14. You're right, those would be a wonderful fit for both the side and wing turrets. They're a stud larger in diameter than the Mos Eisley dome, which I think is appropriate for the size of the windscreens, and would result in smoother spheres. I think the wing turrets move as well, which would be easier to achieve with the gyrosphere parts. Oh boy, now I really want to see it use those pieces.
