    LEGO Speed Champions 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    What's the release schedule for Speed Champions sets, usually? One - two waves a year? I've been looking at Brickset and there have only been 7 sets released every year for this theme. Usually 5 or 6 in the first quarter and another 1 or 2 in summer. I've never really cared for this theme, but ever since the change to 8-wide vehicles, I've been wondering about what future cars could be released.

    What is your favorite UCS Set of all time?

    As awesome as the 75192 Millenium Falcon is, a modified 75252 Star Destroyer (adding tiles and more texture to the hull) gives the MF a good run for its money. I'll go with 75192 as is, but 75252 comes in at a close second for mod potential. (The latest Y-Wing is incredible, too )
  3. Do you all think the winning UCS will release this May? The 2009 vote was held in May, I think, and the Home One set was released the following August - just two months later. The voting page says "one of the next UCS", not just"the next", which makes me think it'll be a much later release.

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    It's just an apple.
  5. This is a great idea that TLG should incorporate more often. It lets fans vote for the most wanted model and gives us an idea of other sets that will come in the future (IIRC, the other options during the vote that the Home One set won were all made into sets the following years). I'll probably vote for the Nebulon. I think it's the set that most merits the UCS treatment. Never been done before as a set, plenty of tiny details and intricate shape. Of course, the other two would look good as UCS's too, but there are a lot more blank spaces on the Gunship and the Bomber than on the Nebulon.
  6. Check out LEGO's official Facebook page for a post about the ISS. I guess we'll get the announcement tomorrow at 10am EST? There were also leaks of the set a few weeks ago in the usual places, if you want to have a look at it.

    LEGO Speed Champions 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    I just finished building the F8 Tributo and, wow, I must say, this set has exceeded all my expectations. I have never seen as many details, geometry and SNOT techniques crammed into such a small set. The jump from 6- to 8-wide made me buy my first Speed Champions set, and I sure hope TLG sticks to this new size, since it's a huge jump in quality from the smaller, city-like cars to these larger, like-architecture-but-for-vehicles sets. However, they are too big to be displayed next to other 6-wide vehicles in a city display. If they are by themselves, even in front of modulars, they look good. They're more in scale with the Ideas Ecto-1 and the gift with purchase Batmobile. If all you have is 8-wide vehicles in your city, I think they'll look great. If you have (like most of us do) 6-wide cars, then maybe it'd be better to find a place where the 8-wide cars can be on their own, perhaps in another street, since the size difference is pretty staggering. Overall, incredible set, full of surprises, very enjoyable build, and I hope TLG doesn't revert back to 6-wide cars.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I've been looking at my modular buildings (still got Bookshop to build) and I noticed that the last large, 32x32 modular we got was Town Hall all the way back in 2012. All of the other modulars since TH have either been multipled buildings in a single set (DO, AS, BB, BS), buildings that occupy the full 32-stud width only in the ground floor (PR & DD) or corner buildings (PC, BB and CG). I guess Palace Cinema and Corner Garage are also single-building sets, but they're both corners, so they leave a gap in a street display. If the "2 normal buildings, then 1 corner building" formula is true, then I'd imagine next year's set will not be a corner building. I wonder if we'll get a single-building set like Green Grocer, Fire Brigade or Town Hall sometime soon. What are some buildings that would warrant using the whole 32x32 baseplate on their own? A museum? A police station? A school?
  9. Probably way too early to start discussing this, but is there any word about what the May the 4th D2C will be? Will it be another display only D2C like the Star Destroyer? A location-based set like Assault on Hoth or a big-but-not-so-detailed-yet-with-lots-of-play-features set like the Tantive IV and Sandcrawler? I don't remember when we first got rumors of the Tantive last year.
  10. I hate to say it, but Old Trafford is beginning to grow on me. Watching the reviews, the set starts to shine. Granted, I know nothing about Football or Manchester United, but I do love large LEGO buildings. Comparing it to previous Landmark sets, this one would be closer to the Sydney Opera House, IMO. Not as many tiny details as the Big Ben or Taj Mahal, but it's rather shapely and well executed in its own way. We'll see. If 2020 seems like a slow year for D2Cs, perhaps this one'll get to the top of the wish list.

    LEGO Creator 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Oh boy, I really want to love this one but so far I'm not into it. Do we have an official reveal date? Maybe tomorrow?

    I'm worried about that stadium set, but excited to see what it'll look like, especially if it is to be released so soon. At first sight, I think the stadium looks terribly boring. Hopefully TLG finds a way to make it worth the hefty price tag.

    Creator Expert 10270 Modular

    Do modulars usually sell out in the first few hours stores open? I want to pick this one up tomorrow, but am not feeling the same hype that got me to wake up at 6AM to queue up for the UCS Star Destroyer.
  14. Does anyone else remember a passing rumor about a Creator Expert set number 10272 retailing for 300$ to be released in January, which I believe came up the day before the Bookstore reveal? I have a faint memory of seeing a screenshot of what looked like an Excel spreadsheet (probably a LEGO Store database page) with details about the Bookstore (hence the rumor showing up when we were discussing that set) as well as details about 10272. I don't want to spread any false information or be hoping for something that isn't gonna come, so I wonder if others remember this rumor or if it's just me. I also wonder if we will be getting a cryptic list of the 2020 D2Cs like we did for most of 2019. Also, I'm itching for new, unlicensed D2Cs, so any rumors are most welcome. Merry Christmas
  15. Hey, everyone. We're nearing the holidays, and I am thinking about beginning buying the individual bricks for a set. Will Bricks and Pieces be down for the holidays until February? It has had some downtime for months during the last few years, so will this year be the same?
