  1. There are pics of set lists out there. Microfighters are coming back and there'll be SW Juniors sets. One list says 75222 - Betrayal at Cloud City and 10268 - Star Wars confidential. Most interesting. Idk about the authenticity of these lists. Anyone know more about them?

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    All right, so it's just next year's fairground set, which I assume will be a summer release, just like the rest. Glad to know there's going to be one next year. There were talks that since 2019 should bring a new Landmark set, there wouldn't be a fairground set for that year.
  3. So, should Cloud City be revealed in about two weeks? Seeing as the Millenium Falcon and the Death Star had their press releases on August 31st. There's very little waiting left!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    You actually might. If I remember correctly, most people were saying that the Falcon was a ~20h build. Any other people who are pretty much done with the castle, how long did it take to build?

    So it's as if Brickset were to put 10267 - Free fall tower in their database? That seems pretty solid.

    How long was the build, more or less?

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Well, this took me by surprise. I certainly hope we do get a free fall tower. This should be due next year, but it's odd that we're already getting rumors. Speaking of which, where's this rumor coming from? Is the source ("According to Brickmerge") trustworthy? EDIT: Looks like Brickmerge is an online store. Is this the type of rumor that comes from an online seller putting up a page for an unreleased product?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yeah, that's from the official description of the set. What interests me is how far apart the two halves of the castle are (each half being separated by the bridges). Are TLG's measurements calculated by having the Great Hall section at the corner of the 27" by 16" area, having the studs of that section align with the width and depth of the set? Or is 27" the maximum width of the set (if the castle were put at an angle like it is in the pictures and measured that way).

    D2C Hogwarts looks amazing. I can't seem to find any images of the set from above. That'd help picture the width and depth of the set, since the castle goes off at an angle with the bridges.

    There's a review on New Elementary that shows off the functions with some pretty cool animations.

    It's nice that TLG managed to include a bunch of functionality into this set but, ultimately, we're paying for a car that feels like a DB5, yet looks like something else. For a generic LEGO car, it looks O.K. For an Aston Martin DB5, it's unrecognisable. For Bond's DB5, it's... well, also unrecognisable but the gadgets are there, which is pretty nice. Easy pass for me, too. Functionality by itself can't redeem an ugly and overpriced set.

    ^ I agree with the whole change of atmosphere. This screams class to me. I can imagine a ball room in there. Well done, I love it when people try different color schemes.
  13. I guess it'll be CC (a disk looking like the top half of the Death Star, maybe slightly bigger and flatter), a small Slave I and a small (maybe normal scale) Cloud Car. I wonder if they'll incorporate a landing platform on the disk or just sticking out of the main assembly, like in the old CC. Could there also be a small MF?

    James Bond 2018

    I'm all for people buying whatever they want, but don't go shaming others for pointing out legitimate flaws within a model. I mean, this is not nitpicking. We're talking about the front and the side of a car (of a DB5, no less). -------------------- @Sinthoras Spot. On. TLG's DB5 does justice to a Peugeot 403, with that flat front. The peculiar depth of the front of the DB5 is lost in this set, whose grill looks like it's been plastered on a wall. Only reason I see for such a boxy shape is to easily accomodate the mechanisms of the gadgets. TLG dropped the ball on this one. I gotta admit, while the Beetle and the Cooper were so successfully designed, they didn't have to worry about fitting gadgets in them. One has to hope the outer sacrifices in the DB5 will be justified by an intricate system of interior mechanisms. Hopefully TLG managed to fit most if not all gadgets inside 007's DB5. Is the official reveal still going to be on the 18th? Kinda surprised to see that a set will be available for purchase the same day it is revealed.

    Boy, did I struck a nerve. This set means a lot to you doesn't it? And so does my opinion, for some reason... If you want to have a civil discussion, please PM me. ------------ Despite the disappointing first leak and probably not wanting to buy the set, I'll be looking forward to the official pictures.
