  1. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Wow. Some great discussion going on in this thread. And some VERY inspirational 16-wide MOC Modulars as well! I would be very happy with a second, 16-wide Modular being released each year. I would also be happy if, somewhat similar to the Ninjago Movie line, Lego embraced the "Modular" standard for some of their other lines and gave us things like a Modular Sanctum Sanctorum, Wayne Manor, Avengers Mansion, Hall of Justice, Xavier's School, Baxter Building, (scaled-down) Daily Planet, (scaled down) Daily Bugle, etc. They seem to be slowly edging in that direction with the recently revealed Jurassic World mansion and Sanctum Sanctorum / Pizzeria, but they're purely facades.
  2. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yes, very much so! I know that others just buy multiples of existing Modulars to build a collection of parts for MOCs, but I'd happily buy a bricks, roof tiles, windows and doors assortment as a starting point for my own MOC. At the very least, I wish the "Classic" boxes came with FAR less colour variety (e.g. only three or four colours instead of 15+) and that Lego would start selling the old "doors and windows" "roof tiles" and "garden" packs again.
  3. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    So ... have we all moved away from thinking that the hotel comment could have been a hint at a re-release of Cafe Corner, albeit with modifications due to part unavailability? I thought that was the prevalent theory / rumour for a while?
  4. DC Super Heroes Wishlists

    If we can get a regular "mansion" in Jurassic World and Dr Strange's mansion in Infinity War, even though both are pretty much just facades, surely we can get a Wayne Manor. Plenty of Bat-villains have discovered Batman's identity and "invaded" Wayne Manor over the years - that's a pretty simple "storyline" for any Wayne Manor set.
  5. 2018 Creator Sets

    As others have noted, from the (fuzzy) photo - it looks more like the so-called "Modular" Creator houses and buildings (i.e. a collection of pre-built walls and ceilings which can be rearranged for different builds). It appears to have an open-back and minimal bricks - instead mainly consisting of large doors, windows and stairs.
  6. 2018 Creator Sets

    I’m not a fan of the pastry shop (although, I thought it looked like an ice cream store from the photo). It seems very unsubstantial - a few window frames, door and stairs. There doesn’t appear to be any real walls or design. It’s a major step down even from the smaller Creator Grocery Store and Toy Shop. Maybe clearer pictures will reveal a more interesting design. The yacht doesn’t look too bad. And the Creator tree house must be a best seller to see so many variants!
  7. Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Same! But, do we have a detailed description for this set yet? The only one I read was from the Jurassic Park / World fan site and they sounded less than impressed with the set.
  8. [mod] A more streamlined Diner

    Very nice. I like how it appears as though it's a singular design (i.e. design and built to look like that instead of looking like an older building which was given an Art Deco inspired partial makeover at a later stage in life). I really like how the curved design is mirrored on the upper floors. I think a little more colour variation in the first two upper floors, perhaps the windowsills or the protruding architraves in white or another colour, would be more visually interesting.
  9. Three per year, one of which is based on a licensed property. For other licensed properties, as Lego seem to be more open to making "people packs" (e.g. "Fun at the Park / Beach / Outdoors" in Lego City and the "Justice League" party set), I'd prefer for them to just make similar "people packs" IF a licensed property genuinely needs / warrants additional minifigures.
  10. Future DC Super Heroes Rumors & Speculation

    Thanks RedHoodPug and PepperoniBricks. I'll hold off trying to track down Lego set no. 76026. As mentioned, the invisible jet build doesn't look particularly impressive. With the growing popularity of Wonder Woman's character, hopefully that will inspire Lego to produce a bigger and better version of her invisible jet (ideally with room for Steve Trevor). Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor, an invisible jet and a brick-built Giganta would be pretty awesome. I guess they'd have to throw in Batman or Superman as well, although perhaps they could give us Batwoman or Powergirl instead?
  11. Future DC Super Heroes Rumors & Speculation

    I hope it's okay to ask this question in this thread - how often does Lego recycle certain, iconic DC superhero sets / vehicles? I'd like to add Wonder Woman's invisible jet to my Lego collection. I know that there was one released in Lego set no. 76026 (Gorilla Grodd goes Bananas) in 2015. And there was also a mini-build for Lego Dimensions and one included with a DC Superhero Girls set. I think there was also a cancelled design which was showcased in a Lego Visual Dictionary in 2012. Is Lego likely to release a new invisible jet for Wonder Woman soon? Or is such a re-release unlikely in the near future because it's not directly Batman-related?
  12. [MOC] Modular Florentine Steakhouse & Butchery

    Very nice. EVERYTHING looks really good. So many amazing details and innovative techniques (e.g. the "cracked" rear wall).
  13. Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Wow. That's ... odd. I guess it works from a "façade" display perspective, but it doesn't make a lot of sense for Doctor Strange's townhouse to include a pizzeria and Peter Parker's bedroom. Unless that's an actual plot point from the film - Dr Strange tries to "teleport" Spider-man to the townhouse and accidentally teleports his apartment and a pizzeria? Even then, it doesn't make any sense as Aunt May's apartment isn't directly above a pizzeria. I guess it makes "modding" the Sanctum easier as you simply strip out all of the pizzeria interior and mod Peter's bedroom to be Stephen's bedroom. Still, it seems to be a ... unique approach. I had expected two separate, smaller, Creator-esque builds which connected together - one being the Sanctum and the other being the pizzeria and apartment.
  14. Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    It's Lego - with enough bricks and skill - anything is possible!
  15. Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    The description from mpbricks states "Fold the building closed or open and fix the street corner in different places for alternative scenarios", so I don't think it's on a traditional baseplate. I would guess that it is more like the Lego Creator Bike Shop and Café (https://shop.lego.com/en-AU/Bike-Shop-Café-31026) with one "building" being the double storey mansion and the other being the pizzeria with an apartment above it?
